    KSI ThisJustIn DNH Appeal

    Hi All, Overall, Justin was doing things which were odd, such as looking up everyone's facebook accounts and acting in a strange manner. Since he was back, he didnt seem to have any regard for the rules or even for himself being in the community. Attached are screenshots that led to us DNHing him. Overall, he has just been causing drama, and wasn't adding anything useful to the community.

    KSI Hall of Fame Inductions

    The Hall of Fame is one of the longest standing traditions in KSI. The members included in the Hall of Fame are the greatest leaders this community has ever seen, with their accomplishments still echoing into this new era. They embody all the ideals and skills we look for in a leader. Dedicated, focused, loyal, innovative, fair and open minded, intelligent, to just name a few. Over the past couple years the concept of the Hall of Fame has, sadly, been diluted from what it once was. The prestige wore off and people began to see it as nothing more than a collection of names. The deeds accomplished by leaders like KSI Oldman 7, KSI Shamen 7 and KSI Apollyon 7 were forgotten and they weren’t replaced by anything new. It’s been a few years since someone was officially inducted the proper way. Because of that, the Hall of Fame isn’t what it used to be. That changes today. From this day forward the Hall of Fame should be seen as a KSI career milestone where your name and deeds can be remembered for years to come. We’re going to put the prestige and pride back into it. It’ll be the example of what every great leader can achieve. So, JT and myself couldn’t think of a better way to start reforming the Hall of Fame by inducting three new names that will help bring the standard back to where it should be. KSI Johnson 7, KSI Poseidon 7 and KSI Chaoticz 7 have officially been inducted into the KSI Hall of Fame. Their dedication and work they’ve put into the community make this an easy decision. KSI is surging right now and a culture has been established like we’ve never seen before. And this largely has to do with everything these 3 have done. They are the exact standard JT and I envisioned our leaders should meet when we discussed excellence in our leadership. Poseidon, Johnson and Chaoticz have done more than enough to join the leaders currently in the Hall of Fame, and we are lucky as a community to have them working for the betterment of our future. A future that is good hands. Sincerely, KSI Kered 7 Executive Director

    Web Ops Overhaul

    As you all may remember, about 6-7 months ago, we restructured web ops in a pretty dramatic way. Over those past months, we have seen what is working, and what isn't. Right now, we feel that Web Ops can be very confusing to members. There have been several changes over the past weeks that have led us to realizing the need to further re-structure (such as the addition of an Art Director and removing of GFX from Personnel, as well as removing Education from Personnel). We feel that at this time, simplicity is key. It is important to have people in the right places to help the community grow, but not too many that it makes the processes convoluted. All of these changes have simplicity in mind, and I hope that most of them will be self-explainatory. With all of that being said, below is the updated Web Ops Structure (in the form of a chain of command chart attached). Over the next several days, you will see these changes take effect on the forums, Discord, ect. If there are any questions, feel free to ask. Personnel Manager has been removed as a position. All of the teams (News, Graphics, Media [Twitch and Youtube], News, Events, AAP, Social Media) will all have a team leader (as they do/can currently). Those Team Leads will report directly to the DoWO and ADoWO. Media Manager will continue to be a position overseeing Twitch and Youtube (and if Podcasts are added, this will fall under Media). Education will be led by an Education Director and will report to the Operations Director and Executive Director (will not be considered "Web Ops") KSI Management Chain of Command.pdf

    This thread is for posting requests for the website administrators to complete (such as new group assignment requests). Department or team leaders should request group changes for their team's members. If you request your own groups to be changed, expect an Admin to want a superior to post confirmation.

    EA and Pay to Win

    AMEN!

    EA and Pay to Win

    EA has announced that they are removing the ability to purchase in-game money from their new bestseller title Star Wars Battlefront 2 after hundreds of thousands of gamers sounded off their discontent for the ever increasing cost of playing and progressing in EA’s game. Pay to win has been a strategy used by some of the largest AAA game developers over the past several years. The model is simple: either the gamer grinds out endlessly for your gear and unlocks, or your hand over your hard earned money for the upgrades and unlocks. Now, I don’t think that all pay to win is bad. I for one, am a busy person. Sometimes, I don’t have time to grind out a game for 200 hours just to unlock that shiny sniper rifle, and to be honest, I would gladly surrender $5 to have that weapon. But would I pay $5 for every piece of gear, weapon, perk, and character? Well, not when games have more options and customizations than ever before. You can easily spend hundreds, and even thousands of dollars on progression unlocks for a single game. For the past several years, Electronic Arts have gone all in with the pay to win model. Whether it’s player packs on FIFA or loot crates on their Battlefield titles, it’s obvious that EA wants to adopt this model across all of their games. Days before the official release of the highly anticipated Star Wars Battlefront 2, over 500,000 Reddit users down-voted an EA staff members comments defending the pay to play economy. This comment became the most down-voted comment in Reddit history. It didn’t stop there. After pressure from the gaming community, EA announced that not only would they reduce the price of in-game characters, but they would be removing the ability to purchase “crystals” with cash entirely. So back to the original question: Is this move by EA indicative of the beginning of the end of pay to win games? Chances are: No. While this unprecedented move by EA is a step in the right direction, it just begins to scratch the surface on an issue that runs much deeper. In a world where the mobile app market is dominated by “freemium” games, I doubt EA and other developers will be changing their methods anytime soon because so far, it has been working and people will pay hundreds of dollars to have the best FIFA Ultimate Team.
