    Meet a Board Member: KSI Copper 7

    Additions and subtractions: The words the KSI Board has been all too familiar with in the past month. The fact is, KSI could learn much more about each member of the board. That’s exactly what this article series will be about: Interviewing each board member to learn about their plans, their self, and thoughts. With each article, we hope to shine some light on exactly who these people are. Allowing each member of KSI to make their own feelings. Our next interview will be with KSI Copper 7! *** KSI New Blue: Copper, tell us about when you first joined KSI. KSI Copper 7: When I joined KSI there were like 160 people in here and they were doing WW2. It was fun. Biddulph and Migraine told me and the wife that being in KSI is all about having fun and just gaming. So I thought, right on! So we started at the bottom of the ranks and I was just having fun until I got introduced to KSI robfink26 and KSI THYMINE 7. They taught me about what all the officers did and can do. KSI New Blue: Can you talk about your time going up the ranks? KSI Copper 7: I started in Rapture. We only had a few officers in the squad, but when they hosted a Gamenight, they killed it. When it came to ranking up, I busted my butt to help out the squad. I had fun recruiting people into KSI. When I was a Sergeant, I was hosting game nights just to get a lot of people into game nights. As many people jumped me, I just worked that much harder to prove I'm here to help the squad grow. About a year and a few months I was running a squad, and it was Rapture. Being a Co-Founder is just like being a General but with a twist. The only difference is being over two squads. I was over Rapture and Redemption. But being a CoFo, you have to learn to step back and look at what's going on in the squads. I knew rapture was in good hands but I was still helping out the squad. Redemption had its ups and downs. After a while, we started getting into it and started picking the squad back up. Founder: Now that’s where I had to learn to not just focus on two squads but six. I also needed to figure out what squads were doing good and what squads needs the help while talking to the Division Leader and Co-Founders too figure out what we could do to start changing stuff too help the squads. No matter what, the way I looked at stuff, you look at what worked and what failed and try to change to put a twist on stuff. Also, see where it would peak too the members. KSI New Blue: What position do you hold on the Board? How did you get there? KSI Copper 7: I hold an FA Leader’s seat on the board. I had to do an interview with a few of the board members to make sure I was ready to hold a seat. KSI New Blue: What makes your perspective on KSI unique from the other Board Members? KSI Copper 7: Well each board member has their own thing to do, from the owners all the way to board reps. With the seat I hold, I have a chance to get a few things changed on the FA side (If it can get passed). And like I told the board members, I am here for KSI and trying to make it better for the members. KSI New Blue: What issues does KSI face today? How can you and the board make sure they get resolved? KSI Copper 7: The problems I see in KSI are depending on the squad. Some are recruiting and some are finding officers. But as for the Board, I can’t speak for all of them. All I can say is that when it comes to both sides of it, we go over everything and we talk about what action we need to take to help everyone. KSI New Blue: What are your dreams for KSI? Where do you hope to see us in 6 months? KSI Copper 7: My dream for KSI is to have it grow and for people to just have fun at what they love to do; that’s gaming. I am hoping in 6 months to be at least getting ready for a div split or be sitting in a good spot to be talking about it. For KSI as a whole, I’m hoping we can get some new things going with cross-platform battles and maybe Crowns on a few games.

    Member Spotlight: BlazZze 7

    You may not notice him, but he’s there. KSI BlazZze 7, or just Blasé, is a recipient of the News Staff of The Year Award, twice, labeled Most Outstanding, and received the Outstanding Service Award! With over 20,000 forums profile views and 1,300+ posts, he was certainly a celebrity in his time. With his most recent retirement beginning in April 2019, he now lives the simple “Community Area” life. KSI New Blue: So, BlazZze, tell me about when you first joined KSI. KSI BlazZze 7: I was always fond of "clans" but KSI was my first formal gaming organization. Coming into something so established and big was daunting, but at the same time, it was very exciting! Luckily, I was able to be friends with good leaders such as Spazbit and Lucky Poi who helped to guide my good intentions in the right direction. KSI New Blue: Who have been your favorite people to work with over the years? KSI BlazZze 7: KSI Spazbit> A blast to work with to rebuild LE. With the rapid growth within the division, she was able to provide structure. KSI Game> Amazing dude. When I came back, I had the honor of helping to rebuild the news team for him. He was always open when it came to the bettering of KSI and always came with an open mind. KSI Anatomy> I mean, I don't think the news team could've been as well structured back in the day if it wasn't for his help. I had a blast at the same time even when the team was just made up of me, Anatomy, and Lolo. KSI New Blue: What is your proudest moment or achievement in KSI? KSI BlazZze 7: Helping to rebuild LE from falling apart, to a fully fledged flagship division. KSI New Blue: Is there anything you wish you could have done differently? KSI BlazZze 7: If anything, I wish I got more heavily involved with web ops when I first joined. I did participate with web ops at that time, but I wasn’t as heavily involved as I wish I was. KSI New Blue: How would you describe your time in KSI with only 3 words? KSI BlazZze 7: Exciting, enlightening, and inspirational. KSI New Blue: You're a pretty quiet guy nowadays. Will we see you come out of retirement anytime soon? KSI BlazZze 7: Haha, good question! More than likely not. My clan ops days are over (for the foreseeable future). I enjoy video editing and writing in my free time but I don't plan to make a return to web ops. So, that’s Blasé’s thoughts on Blasé, but what do his ex-peers think of him? I asked Nex Addo and Miss LoLo what they had to say. Miss LoLo: He's always been thorough and encouraging. We had great team cohesion under his guidance, and the quality standards were really high, which propelled the team to learn and improve. I recall the banter between him and Anatomy was pretty funny! His temperament definitely sets him apart. He is good-natured and rarely got worked up about something. He kept us on task while still keeping good humor. He led the most active and highest quality news team since the days of Ch1ef running it. Nex Addo: He's quirky, odd, and funny, though his leadership makes himself equal. He’s constantly checking on his team. The fact that everyone including him is on the same goal is what makes him different. Besides the title, he's not more important than anyone else. Thanks for taking the time to learn more about a member of the community you may not have known! Do you have a member in mind you want to know more about? Feel free to send me a message on discord at KSI New Blue#5555! Thanks to BlazZze, Miss LoLo and Nex Addo for their parts in this article. See you next time on Member Spotlight!

    The Everyday Heroes of KSI

    Many members in this community put on a uniform, and go to work not knowing whether or not they may come home that day. From police, fire, and EMS, each first responder faces many challenges related to the career. Although a lot of these challenges happen on the clock, most still continue after the sirens are gone. The challenges that most first responders encounter on the job teach them skills that translate into other parts of their lives, such as KSI. First responders are often seen as heroes, in reality, they’re just your normal everyday people. We put our clothes on and go to work every day just like anyone else. The only difference is the job that first responders do, they run into situations that most people would run from. From shootings, cardiac arrest, structure fire, or a simple head injury first responders see a lot on a daily basis. The traumatic calls, the tough times create a bond between first responders that often isn’t seen in other careers. There are times that first responders have to lean on each other because nobody else can understand. Through the good times and the bad, we love our job and wouldn’t want to do anything else. First responders wake up and go to work for the one thing, we like to help other people on their hardest days. Let’s meet, and listen to some of the experiences of a few of our first responders within KSI. KSI xTITANx 7-FA Co-Founder (Firefighter) What drove you to be a first responder? "Growing up I watched fire trucks pass by my mom's office, a kid I went to preschool with, her dad was a captain for the local fire department and getting to see the truck when he would come by. Then when I got older, a massive grass fire threatened the community I lived in to the point we almost had to be evacuated. I wanted to go through the academy provided by my local community college but I got scared by the difficulty of the EMT course and didn’t follow through. Fast forward about a decade and what really drove me to become a firefighter was after my brother's suicide. I decided I wanted to follow my dream of becoming a firefighter but still wanted to stay in the job I had. A friend of mine just so happened to be a volunteer firefighter and invited me to come out to a training night and check it out. I filled out my application and the rest is history. Almost 4 years later I’m still a firefighter with the same fire department, and I can’t imagine my life without it. The friends I’ve made, the bonds of brotherhood I’ve made, becoming baptized by fire, the lives I’ve touched because of this job. It’s a life I wouldn’t ever change." What is one thing you’ve learned while being a firefighter? "Pride. Taking pride in my work. Taking pride in my apparatus. Making sure they are clean and ready to go. To show our citizens that their trust in us is not misplaced. By taking pride in how we treat and care for our citizens as if they were our own family." KSI Fire728-Valkyrie LT (Firefighter) What drove you to be a first responder? “I’ve always wanted to be a firefighter/first responder since I was a kid. My father, uncle (mom's side) and grandfather did it. My uncle was the only one to make a career out of it and is now I believe a captain or chief. My grandfather and father, like me, were volunteers for a dept when they were younger. My mother was an EMT for a while before she changed career paths. So growing up in a family like that you get drawn towards it. I also just like the feeling of helping people. The feeling of an adrenaline rush when a house is on fire and you get called to put it out. Being a first responder, especially a volunteer, because you don't get paid for it is an experience because you risk your life every time you choose to go to a call. Yes as a volunteer you can choose what calls you go to but I like to go to as many as I can. Its really an eye awakening thing and makes you appreciate life even more because you see what can happen to you or someone you care about. At the end of the day, I love it. I love what I do. I love the man I became because of it. I don't wish what I see upon anybody. I've been fortunate that I haven't seen any fatalities yet. As much as I don't want someone to pass away I know that day will eventually come and nobody is ever prepared for it. Everyone reacts and handles the situation differently.” KSI Gordon-Hades SGT (Firefighter) Is there any particular lesson or trait you’ve learned as a first responder that has helped you in KSI? “Some traits from being a first responder that has helped me in KSI is being level headed and always trying to help people out whenever I can.” What drove you to be a first responder? “Well, what drove me to be a first responder is the stories that my dad and uncle would tell me as a kid. My dad was a chief in the same department I and my brother are both in today. Guess you can say it’s sort of a family thing.” From a first responder, the news team, and all of KSI, we’d like to thank all of our heroes for everything they do!

    why YOU should join KSI... again

    Okay, so you're thinking "why is blue posting something like this near the end of the forums" Well, that's a fair question. Here's the answer: KSI has been around since 2003. If you're reading this, odds are you are not in KSI at the moment. Today's members pretty much only use discord. There are very few reasons to hop on the forums today (besides the News). You have 1 of three opinions. 1. there is no reason to be in KSI or any other community. 2. KSI is not the way it used to be. 3. It is the next generation's turn to lead the community. So, while there may be some truth to those thoughts, allow me to break them down. 1. A community is a place to very easily find camaraderie. Whether you game solo, or with a small group, there are always places and times where you need one person to fit the position or niche you usually cannot find. KSI's members are so amazingly diverse that it's nearly guaranteed that we can help you out in that aspect. Even if you don't game anymore, we still have an entire Web Ops side. 2. You are completely correct. It is not. However, for good reason. Even only a couple years ago, KSI culture was dominated by seemingly impossibly responsibilities. If you were on News Team, you worked like a dog. If you were an officer, you recruited 4 or more people a week. Today's culture is 170% laxer. with one recruit good recruit a week, you could be successful. With only one graphic or news article every 2 weeks, you could still do well. Hell, the only way we can remove somebody for inactivity is after 30 days of silence on discord AND not playing with a KSI member. 3. Yeah. I could easily see how this makes sense, but if you look at it from a new perspective, you can see that we are not asking you to lead the community. In 2020 alone, Game x7, Anatomy, and Mizz Airy have made a return to help with the Wiki Team. Nex Addo and I run the team and would love you have YOU next. KSI Wiki Team: The goal of this team is to extract ALL the information from the KSI Forums. We are needing members that are wanting to preserve KSI's history throughout its 17 years.

    KSIThePunisher

    This February KSI lost a great member. KSIThePunisher, rest in peace. “You never know what you have, until you lose it.” It is the sentiment that controlled the mood of Tuesday’s memorial meeting and game nights, with nearly a hundred attendees total. “He was a kind, nice, funny, loving, young man. It was last weekend we got married and began our lives together. He would always make sure that everyone I mean everyone else was happy before he took care of his own needs and wants, I witnessed him give multiple homeless people about $500 each so they could go get food, new clothes and whatever else they wanted. He honestly loved playing with you guys whenever he could. He made time to be around you guys, but he loved the outdoors.” -His Wife Victoria “He was playing D2 on pc for a short period, and he woke me up like 2 am (I am 6 hours ahead of est) to show me that the recluse had no recoil on pc it was so hilarious. He was so stoked about it and I was so tired, but in the end, we got a good laugh, and I’m happy we did. I’m gonna miss him. I think we all will.” -KSI_Cree “He was very important to me... When I first joined KSI I did not talk to anyone. He pulled me aside and talked to me about KSI and what it meant to be a part of KSI. He also started inviting me to game nights and introducing me to members. He taught me all about BO4 and the different weapons I knew nothing about. As we spent more time getting to know each other, he started teaching about the roles in KSI and how to rank up. He saw the potential I had as a leader and pushed me to rank up. He really meant a lot to me and I'm truly sorry he is gone.” -KSI Kush “Well, one of my favorites was when one time I was doing a Pit of Heresy run and it was before any of us figured out how to do any of it, so we kept jumping from symbol cave to symbol cave to find the right enemies and after 2 hours we pulled it off. then we got to the witches step and as much as we wanted to be serious about it, we kept knocking each other off, by accident at first, and then on purpose because by that point we were all crying from laughter because we didn’t know you could do that. and then when we finally finished that part, we got to the ogre caves, and at the worst time, we would block the shortcuts into caves to get each other killed because that got us laughing so hysterically I think at least 2 of us peed a little bit. Then we got serious, figured out the way through, got to the knight boss, and we were him down to one shot, and to finish it he and the other guy shot rockets at him but before they could hit I tweeted my body with a thunder crash and killed the boss and myself in an electrical blaze of glory, and all started laughing to tears again. it's one of my favorite memories of playing and hanging out with him, and I feel it shows just how happy and humorous he was.”-KSI_Zangestu Even though I personally only spoke to him once, he still sent me a DM every couple of months, only to ask how I was doing, or what I was up to. It was certain, through his words and actions, that he cared greatly about the community and its members. Although he’s gone, he will never be forgotten. “It is not the length of life, but the depth of life.” -Ralph Waldo Emmerson
