KSI’s year of 2021 came to a close via the Of The Year’s Awards Show. As one of the most highly anticipated events hosted, it did not disappoint at all. The Twitch Stream was full, viewing parties filled on Xbox, winners were announced, giveaways happened, and promotions were given. Several big announcements had been made as well!
Greetings from a truly appreciative Department during this prestigious event. For those who don’t know me, I am KSI Paradox 7, and am the one who is handing you your awards and applying them to your Forums Profiles like little badges of honor. I would like to start by thanking all of the members who, throughout the year, have been taking part in the Departmental and Divisional OTM’s. You guys are who keep people like myself and my AAP minions in a job. There are also the members who are constantly in the Department nominating themselves and others for awards, which after a little knowledge you find are easily obtainable.
The 2021 year has been a tough one for all of us both in real life and within the community. For all of you guys who are sticking with us, you are the real MVPs! The Department has been through some big changes and we will always continue to grow. We’re doing this by adding new awards and trying our best to spread the good news of AAP to all members. Well done to all the winners and runner-ups for the Of The Year awards. And to those who didn’t make those lists, you are the reason we do what we do on a daily basis. All of our members are what make this group of like-minded gamers a COMMUNITY. And thank you to all my supporting staff: Dropshot, Airborne, Kakashii, DC, Swag, King & Venum. Also my actual staff: Uppish, Bane, Merc, Levi, Shatner, Darkangel & Subzero.
KSI The League
By a raise of hands, how many of us have missed Head Hunters??? Be honest now, you know you really have! Thanks to KSI DropShot 7, we have a new and improved version coming straight to us! To clarify, KSI The League is a condensed format of HH, with shortened seasons across multiple games throughout the year.
This seasons games will first be held on sports games, followed by the ever elusive first person shooters, and will end the League’s season by taking in the communities feedback on which games they want to see. To start KSI The League, (since the Super Bowl is right around the corner), our first season will be held on Madden 2022, and will be starting in mid February. Signups will be posted in the KSI community server approximately 2 weeks prior to The League starting, so keep an eye out for more information!
Re-Admission’s Policy of KSI
For anyone who’s ever rejoined KSI, you know there’s a policy utilized to determine whether or not one can come back. As the Chief Administrative Officer, KSI Venum 7 has revamped this policy, and it might look faintly familiar to some!
The purpose of this policy is to clarify/define the guidelines and procedures of admission or readmission to KSI if the applicant has any history with the following:
- Blacklisted Communities
- On Notice Communities
- Removed from, on negative term with, KSI/Affiliated Communities
To start the process of Admission/Readmission, the applicant must initially face a denial of 180 Days. Once that is concluded, the applicant is permitted to put in a Join/Rejoin Application where the application will be placed on COS Consult. Here they will be judged solely on merit, and not past affiliations/transgressions.

Keep in mind that this event is unlike the other Annual Events that we host. Members will sign up as a solo player, and paired together by the T&E Head and Co-Head. Points won for Div Cup will ONLY come from participation as well. With that being said, make sure to get your Division hyped and signed up, and stay tuned for more information coming soon.
