  1. KSI In Real Life

    I would definitely love to come back again someday! But the next trip is GuardianCon, right? Hopefully with fewer sprinklers haha Yessir, that was the purpose of the trip, and I was really glad I went!
  2. KSI In Real Life

    "KSI In Real Life" By: KSI Mizz Airy When you spend so much time with people online, talking to them, teaching them, learning from them, it's amazing how easily those bonds can translate over to real life as well! A week ago, I returned from an awesome trip where I had the absolute pleasure of meeting some members of LE and seeing a couple of former SO members again. The six people I was able to see not only reminded me of how KSI can do more than just teach lifelong skills, but it can build lifelong friendships. I started by going to Houston, TX, and meeting Shayzerbeam, a Private in Avalon LE, while I killed some time before my flight to Pennsylvania. She was incredible to get to know! Having only ever talked to her on the Discord server before, it was really cool how easy she was to get along with. Within a very short time, she showed me just how much she cared about her friends and fellow members. I enjoyed my short time with her so much, that I saw her again on the way back, and by that point, it felt like I'd known her for much much longer. Upon arriving in Pittsburgh, PA, I drove up to stay with KSI MercysAngel, the squad leader of Avalon LE. She and I have been friends for a few months online. We have worked out together and talked about things ranging from her native Texan life to kids and, of course, Destiny. Her family welcomed me very warmly, and they were a blast to hang out with. Cards Against Humanity will never be the same! Mercy then accompanied me for the four hour drive to where KSI Mr Miagi and KSI BlazeDaily7, Co-Founder and Co-Division Leader of LE, respectively, live. Prior to this trip, Mercy had hardly ever talked to them. My history with them goes back a lot farther, though. They were recruited into Empire RD when KSI DoubleOh and I were getting ready to split into Cerberus RD back in 2015. All three of them were new to Destiny, and it was a lot of fun getting to play with the "KinderGuardians". To fast-forward about 18 months, Blaze and Miagi were two of the very first members of Darkness TR, the squad that would eventually execute the first successful Destiny split in KSI. That kind of bond (building something and seeing the continued results of those efforts much further down the line) is something special in and of itself. And from the moment we met at the bar, you'd have never guessed it was our first time meeting. (By the way, Blaze is the master of darts, but sprinklers are not his friends. And Miagi is the master of bouncing darts.) What's more, though, I got to see the body language for the first time of how these three reacted when speaking about KSI matters. I was really moved by how evident it is that they really care for the efforts they and the other LE members put into making the division function day-to-day. The next day, following an adventurous lunch with Mercy (duck was involved), Miagi joined us in doing an escape room challenge with a former member of the Special Ops Division (2007), KSI Moos3, as well as a couple of his friends. Teamwork won out in the end, and we escaped the serial killer with barely a couple of minutes to spare! After lunch with Moos3 and another former member and very dear friend, KSI Templar EK, Mercy and I started the journey back. For the past week, I've been holding onto that amazing, light feeling from my long weekend away. These men and women who I have known ranging from 10 years to just a few weeks reminded me what incredible bonds can be built, in game and out. Pennsylvania was beautiful, but it was this group that made the trip one of the best weekends of my adult life. Thank you, all, for your kind hospitality and even more so for your great friendship.

  5. About KSI

    Knowledge, Strength, Integrity. These are the traits and qualities we look for in our members, to develop them further, and to construct a community together. It is about more than just gaming. For nearly 15 years, we have aimed to build upon life skills, technical abilities, and lifelong friendships. Leadership is important, but even more than that, KSI is about teamwork. Conflict resolution, understanding different ideals and motivations, and setting aside differences for a common goal are all essential to the efforts we put forth to build our squads, divisions, and departments. Members develop incredible team-building and leadership abilities through the efforts they put into making KSI the long-lasting community it has become. There are several opportunities for members to learn new technical skills as well. KSI offers the chance to take part in our various web operations departments to learn journalism, graphic design, video editing, and more. Members voluntarily dedicate their time to learning these skills and teaching others to better their abilities and explore their options. These chances to try something new and master a skill have resulted in revealing new hobbies and even career paths for KSI members. We strive to uphold a work hard, play hard mentality. When building with other people, seeing the resulting efforts being a creation previously undreamt of, strong bonds are formed between people. These ties become friendships that can last for decades, as many KSI members can attest to. The community becomes something guaranteed that people can fall back on and know that they have the support of someone, whether that member is in the next town over or across the ocean. KSI is, and always will be, a community by gamers, for gamers.

  7. You're Never Alone

    I try to maintain composure in front of others, most of the time. But there are times, entirely too many, where I hit a breaking point. When something happens that just eats away at me and leaves me wondering "What am I doing wrong?" I've had a lot of those lately. But when it comes to those times, those despairing thoughts that won't go away, I've found that there are friends - hundreds or even thousands of miles away - who will help it sting a little less. Even if that means them telling me to get on Destiny and go kill some aliens with them to think about it a little less. Or just sitting in a party for 3 hours and talking it out with me. Or getting me to get up and go do a workout to rid some of the stress. Lost Empire has been a blessing. Half of the members came from broken divisions, feeling defeated or angry. Together, we have risen up to the challenges presented. There is no shortage of members willing to reach out to one another when they are feeling upset, depressed or hurt. We make it a point to let it be known to speak up to someone, to anyone, in the event it gets to be too much. It doesn't always work... We lost a member recently. Before sitting down to write this, I looked at his picture, his screenshots, the last things he wrote in our server, then I spent 20 minutes sitting on the floor of my room, crying. Not because I was especially close to him. But because now I never will be - no one else will be. I feel like I failed him. Life is entirely too short already. Don't help it along to the end. Say something. If someone doesn't listen, say it again to someone else. I have been in that seemingly never ending black hole. All it can take sometimes is one lifeline. Just one person to say, "You are so brave. Every day that you get up to face the next one, you are strong, and you are brave." Whether that person is right next to you or is a voice over the headset, you're never alone.

  10. Outstanding Service Citation

    This award is one of the very few which are given only at the discretion of senior leadership of KSI to those who have provided an incredible long-lasting contribution to the community. It is a coveted award, not handed out by self-nomination or even by nomination from other members. Today we have the pleasure of announcing a new recipient of this classic award. KSI Mr Miagi first joined KSI in Empire RD in November 2015. He rejoined into Darkness TR September 2016 and was a key part of building the first Destiny squad to execute a successful split. Not long after, it was mentioned that the Clan Management System admins could use help with coding, and Mr Miagi volunteered for the extra responsibility. Within six months, he redesigned the somewhat broken CMS, fixing and improving on features with assistance from KSI DoubleOh 7 and input from other community leaders. His efforts resulted in the launch of the new CMS in June of 2017, and the difference has already been recognizable. Squads are better accounted for, displays are simpler to see at a glance, and administration functions have improved significantly. For this selfless volunteered dedication, senior leadership has seen fit to award KSI Mr Miagi with the Outstanding Service award. Congratulations @KSI Mr Miagi!
  11. A Letter to KSI

    Dear KSI, When I first met you, I didn’t know what to think. I had been on Xbox Live since Call of Duty 3 and never thought of joining a clan before. I had 5 friends who I gamed with every day; we were COD Pubstompers and were content with getting on and immediately disappearing into a party together for hours each day. I received messages throughout the years - DHG, XGC, a slew of small upstarts. At the time, I was settled in my place with the friends I had. As time went on, my friends’ schedules changed. Some of them got off way too early for my work schedule, and I found myself riding solo a lot until I was hit up by a KSI member on Modern Warfare 2 who sent me a similar generic message post game. I’d dismissed the idea in the past, but there I was in a position where my routine had been disrupted and figured maybe it was time to try something new. I sent him a message back, joined a party and went through the recruitment process. I was placed in Ancient Armada, Sigma Squad. I met a few people here and there but stayed close with my recruiter. He was a good talker, knew a lot about KSI and had this motivational knack to him. I stayed for about 6-7 months then had my final year at University to deal with. I heard a lot of stuff happened a few months after I left so I figured when the time was right I would rejoin you. That took about 2 years to happen, during which I dabbled a bit in a smaller clan before being prompted to rejoin you with my initial recruiter. We had just reopened a division AD (After Death), and I was put in Oblivion as a Sergeant to start, which quickly turned to Lieutenant 2 weeks later after I had shaken off my rust. From there, I was pushed to General after the loss of our entire officer staff. With no idea what I was doing initially, I used communication, asked questions, and had a sense of pride in succeeding that quickly showed me that the possibility of being a leader here was real. When I joined, I thought I would never reach that echelon…this place was “too big and too vast to notice me”. I had a lot of time on my hands while I was recovering from some problems and limited to my house for at least 2 months. You kept me distracted, gave me a home, gave me redemption in a sense that traveled into my real life. I chose to pursue that “impossible task” I felt was at hand. That motivation made me want to learn as much as I possibly could, not just from leaders, but from members that I interacted with daily. I stayed passionate about what I learned from rebuilding that squad, and I tried to make sure everyone mattered below me. Soon I was travelling upward to Founder, Co-Division Leader, Division Leader. I poured my heart into this place and truly felt like I was making a difference, teaching people to find potential they never knew existed. I made my goal to show everyone I encountered just how amazing you have been to me. I’ve found myself on the wrong side of people’s pasts, found adversity since the moment I felt the pressure of a squad that needed me to succeed. I found those impossible ranks and none of it was easy, I was judged by who recruited me, I was underestimated on a consistent basis…I still am. By people that lost their purpose here years ago, people that left and let power, rank, influence corrupt the true meaning behind why we do this. I never let it stop me, I never once let myself see the point of view of those people. I stayed true to you and the people that inhabit this place, I have peers that encourage me and see how much I care. I promise you that no title or rank here will ever turn me away from the purpose of holding it, and I am sure every Senior Leader of this community can attest to the same. Education will always come before politics, and the members will always supersede my personal feelings. People count on me every day to teach them new things, show them the road I took to be who I am now…and I promise you I won’t let them down. That no matter what I am labeled, how am I judged or what is assumed of me that you will know, the members will know and I will know that I never stopped being that General who thought it was impossible to ever be noticed here. It makes me respect the titles I hold, makes me realize that the fabric of what this place is will always be bigger than myself. Even if I make mistakes, I will never hide behind them, you deserve better than that. Thank you, KSI, for helping me see a purpose on this console that most people consider purposeless. Thank you for keeping me distracted during rough times in my life and showing me that “impossible” is just a formality. Thank you for the people who loved you enough to stay here and teach me what they know, regardless of their pasts. Thank you for reminding me each day that even if people don’t understand now, they will if I keep trying. For keeping me humble, giving me the opportunities I’ve had to make a change. Finally, thank you for the retractors over the years, for situations that seemed too severe to overcome…they have only made me stronger. I’ll never give up on you…because you never gave up on me, no matter how “big or vast” you got. Sincerely, KSI Cali 7
