    Mayhem II

    "The space between life and death, that's where we are the most alive" - Floki
    March 2020, New Blood V victors...
    House
     

    Longbow
    led to victory by House General Siles
    Division

    led to victory by Commander  Blaire
    Record: 231 Recruits
     
    A Contest Of The Gods
    Four times a year, for many years, a great showdown before the gods begin. The Houses, Divisions and individual members battle it out in a show of strength, with glory, power and prestige showered upon those who best their opponents. The theme of each competition varies, including contests in most reputation, recruits, posts, events attended and so on.
    The month of June 2020, is the Event Attendance challenge
    So what are the Stakes?
     
    Best House 
    + House of the Year - 4 Points 
    + Top of the House Sort Order
    House of the Year - 2019 final scores:

    House of the Year is a cumulative score of the triumphs obtained my officers and members for their house throughout the year. Triumphs are obtained by doing something truly great, such as winning Valhalla League, graduating a new Division, or beating 30+ other Divisions in a contest like this. All of these achievements go towards House of the Year standings.
    Members who have been in the winning House for 6+ months at the end of the year, earn the extremely prestigious:
    House of the Year award
    Scoring will be based on the House Standings, which uses total event attendance plus the competitive event attendance to calculate a division or house's total score. Ratios will be used, putting houses with fewer members on more even footing with larger houses.
                                                                                                                        + 
    Best Division
    + The  Vanquisher triumph for the Commander and Vice (only counted once)
    + TheBest Division Medal for all members of the division who participated (20+ events attended)
    The Vanquisher triumph is worth 5 points towards the House of the Year leaderboard, and a prestigious triumph that is only awarded four times a year. The Best Division Medal is another award that is only awarded four times a year, and considered extremely prestigious by members.
    Scoring will be based on the Division Standings, and will use the raw events attended + competitive activity numbers from each Division (not ratios) for the month of June. This allows every division to participate, including seeds. For example, a division with 100 events attended and 20 competitive events attended will have a total score of 120.
                                                                                                                 + 
     
    Best Individual
    Individual members who perform the best, will be awarded based on their position in the member standings.
    1st.  Star of Valor - 1st Class award and 500 REP
    2nd. Star of Valor - 2nd Class award and 350 REP
    3rd.  Star of Valor - 3rd Class award and 250 REP
    4th. 150 REP
    5th. 150 REP
    Scoring will be based on the Member Standings, and will use the raw events attended + competitive activity numbers for each individual for the month of June. 
     
    FAQ
    - I am an Initiate - can I still participate?
    Yes! and you should!
    - When does the scoring end?
    When the standings reset at the end of the month. I think it is midnight of the last day, but don't quote me.
    - If my Division wins, will everyone get the Best Division Medal?
    Only members and initiates who helped their Division win will be eligible. This is defined by getting at least 20+ events attended this month.
    Feel free to ask any questions!
    Remember, Odin is watching.

    Frequently Asked Questions 
    Q: Where do I find the events?
    A: All events are scheduled on the Community Calendar and are converted automatically to your system clocks timezone. The events will be hosted in the Social Lounge at the top of the DI TeamSpeak. Rooms will be created for the Events and tagged with [SW] and the title of the event. Make sure you are on time and RSVP in order to earn  Community Tokens that are worth 3 REP an hour. If it is a multi hour event, you can join/leave for the 2nd hour as well. For Tournaments you will need to be on time and favorably come with your team 10 min before - details to registration can usually be found in the Event Description. 
    Q: Who organizes Super Weekend?
    A: Super Weekend is hosted by Community divisions, usually on a rotational basis. This time around DI-CV has the pleasure of doing so. DI-CV is led by @BananaB & @WizzleWuzzle & is contained within House Trident which is also led by @Hedd
    Q: How are the games decided? 
    A: It's usually decided on by which games are the hottest and doing the best, as well as the amount of officers in each game's CoC that want to host an event for SW. Special Super Weekends will try to incorporate as many different games and special themed modes as possible. All Vices, Commanders and even Captains from Divisions and Orders pitch in and try to host the funkiest events for you! If you have suggestions for this or the next SW or special SW, don't be shy to make suggestions! 
    Q: How long does it take to set up everything?
    A: It all depends on how familiar those that are helping are. Due to new promotions somewhat frequently, we're always having to explain the concept and help those new guys get into the rhythm and understand the planning that goes into these events. But we spend the whole month getting the next one ready, so they're very high quality! Especially, the special Super Weekends take some extra time planning and only come around a few times a year. 
    Q: Can I join/help out with Super Weekend?
    A: The simple answer is Yes, but with restrictions. The longer answer is that we love when people assist us, but we like to keep it central and making sure we delegate properly. The best thing you can do is contact the current organizers with the specifics on how you'd like to help, and seeing if we can fit you in. Streamers, creative minds, co-hosts of all ranks and volunteering Officers are always welcome. 
    Q: What if I'm doing something big like a tournament during Super Weekend?
    A: During this weekend, Valhalla could possibly be taking place at the same time. Don't fret, enough events are up for you to participate. If you are running your own tournament, you can contact the organizers to see if you want to add your tournament to the SW, given that the time does not overlap with already scheduled events

You have gone through a hard month in the Imperium Order, where many of your peers fell and weren’t able to reach the standards set for Officers within DI, but you’ve prevailed and shown you’ve got what it takes.

    Congratulations to the following awards:
     
     Aussiebee (by 13thShade)
    Awarded Star of Valor - 1st Class for your extraordinary leadership. Bee, your commitment to House Sabre and to the greater good of DI these last months have been unparalleled. Under your leadership, Sabre has more than doubled in size, producing multiple Super Divisions and strong commanders. You invest in your commanders and have built an incredible culture of camaraderie in Sabre - one that is to be envied. Your commitment has never wavered, even when the going has been tough. You have the quality I value most in a leader in spades: consistency. Well done, Bee. You are appreciated.
     TinyMario (by 13thShade)
    Awarded Star of Valor - 2nd Class for your outstanding commitment to AFU. Tiny, your performance in AFU for the last several months has been nothing short of spectacular. You came in with one objective: get DI's competitive scene on the right track. With the launch of Fight Night you have been a major part of this, working closely with Suki, Profi, and the other boys in AFU to deliver a strong competitive experience to our members. Additionally, you've gone outside of your role as team leader to recruit several new officers to AFU, acting as a de facto Order Commander in these two months without one. You have made me, and your community, proud.
     Sukitachu (by GreatJackal)
    Awarded Star of Valor - 2nd Class for your outstanding commitment to AFU. Suki, your management of Fight Night and greater AFU has been spectacular. You tracked teams carefully, ensured divisions got the necessary teams submitted on time. Your responsiveness in the Fight Night discord channels represented AFU and DI as a whole very well, solving problems and answering questions on a consistent basis. Though it was not the position you joined AFU for, your administration, work ethic, and knowledge have made Fight Night a success today. Well done.
     Knavisser (by 13thShade)
    Awarded Star of Valor - 3rd Class for your excellent leadership. Knav, you took over LM when it was in a tough spot. Low on officers and with a record-setting cohort on your hands, you wasted no time bringing in good people and putting them to work. Your experience in VP and Division Command are apparent - the way you constantly look for ways to improve LM and DI as a whole do not go unnoticed. Your spreadsheets, tracking, and analysis this month have been invaluable. Well done.

    Competitive Revolution

    "The world is changing and we must change with it" - Ragnar
    We are now well on our way towards success with our massive scale Spring Offensive, having seen a significant quantity of objectives already completed. So it is with great excitement that we unveil our new competitive system within Damage Inc that will transform one of the core features of being a member, as well as, being one of the key features of our brand new (soon to be released) Master Division Registry. So come 1st May, we will implement several major initiatives to support the Competitive Revolution.
    The Competitive Revolution will let you:
    + Quickly find teams or players of a desired Skill, Reliability and game Role using the new MDR (see below)
    + Quickly see which rosters are considered  Comp Rosters
    + Earn extra REP by participating in Competitive Events
    + Highly skilled Initiates will have a new way to graduate Initiation through the Elite Initiation Program
    + Help better seed tournaments and events with matchmaking that is more balanced
    So we already have Standardized Grading, but...
     
    Reliability
    For a long time, we have had teams rise and fall due to reliability. Simply put, reliability measures a player's commitment and availability for serious competitive play. We get a lot of players who "talk comp" by saying they will attend practices, do this and do that - but when the time comes they don't show up for practice, or other team commitments. This is an incredibly frustrating experience for other players on the roster who are taking the competitive side seriously. For a casual player, reliability means nothing.
     Level 5 -- 95%+ Reliable (Comp eligible)
     Level 4 -- 80%+ Reliable (Comp eligible)
     Level 3 -- 70%+ Reliable 
     Level 2 -- 60%+ Reliable 
     Level 1 -- <60% Reliable 
    Reliability will measure each member's ability to commit to a serious competitive roster and is designed for players who are:
    - Serious about Esports and willing to put 15-20+ hours a week into it
    - Looking for dedicated teams that practice 4+ times a week, and attend tournaments and scrims on weekends
    - Able to commit to a schedule in advance (eg. practice Monday, Wednesday, Thursday at 6pm, every week)
    How it Works
    Reliability % = Total Events RSVP'd "Yes" Attended in past 6 months / Total Events RSVP'd Yes in past 6 months
    1. (+) Reliability is improved by:
    - RSVP "Yes" at least 48 hours before an event's scheduled start time (RSVPing within 48 hours does nothing)
    - RSVP "Yes" ("No" and "Maybe" does nothing)
    - Attend the Event on the scheduled date and time
    2. (-) Reliability is lost by:
    - RSVPing "Yes" at least 48 hours or more before an event, but then:
    -- not showing up
    -- changing your RSVP to "No" or "Maybe" within 48 hours of start time
    - Not attending at least 8+ Events per month that have been RSVP'd "Yes" 48+ hours before event start
    Summary
    - Reliability only matters if you are here to play competitive / esports on a serious level. Casuals can ignore it.
    - RSVP at least 48 hours in advance with "Yes" to events you are sure you can attend to gain (+) reliability
    - Never RSVP "Yes" if you are not sure you can attend, it will hurt your (-) reliability
    - Make sure you attend at least 8+ Events a month that you RSVP'd "Yes" to 48 hours or earlier before event start
     
    Comp Rosters 
    In the new Master Division Registry, competitive rosters will have distinguished crossed sword markings. What this means is that the players in these rosters are hardcore esports focused players who are practicing several times a week, and competing in weekly scrims and tournaments. These rosters will also have higher requirements than regular/casual rosters, and they are always located in Team A.
     
    Overview
    - Each Division has a max of 4 official  Comp Rosters, always located in Team A, Rosters 1-4
    -  Comp Rosters may not be bigger than their game's standard size roster plus max 3 subs
    - Comp players compete at tryouts for a slot in their division's  Comp Rosters
    - Only Comp Eligible players may reside in Team A
    - Team A is led by a Competitive Team Leader
    - Team A, Rosters 5-9 are used for overflow Comp Eligible players looking to enter/tryout for Rosters 1-4
    - To be considered a Comp Eligible player, a member or initiate must:
    -- Have 80%+ Reliability
    -- Attend 4+ Comp Events a month (eg. Fight Nights)
    -- Not on an active Comp Team Ban
     
    Comp Events & Tokens
    We wanted to create an extra incentive of rewarding players for participating in competitive events as well as tracking attendance at comp events to help support Comp Eligible players and the Elite Initiation Program. 
    Comp Event Tokens are issued by AFU each week to each player, for each match they participated in with:
    - Fight Night (Weekly - Open to everyone, casual or comp)
    - Thor's Challenge (Monthly - Open to everyone, casual or comp)
    - Valhalla League (Quarterly - Only  Comp Rosters)
    They are worth 10 REP, but will be awarded in addition to the "Other Event" tokens from the event, for a total of 20 REP.
    But most importantly, they will capture this information on the Member Standings (mockup below - its not live yet)

    Which will support:
    - Comp Eligibility status for members
    - Elite Initiation Program
     
    Elite Initiation Program
    Bringing back the return of a legendary old program allows our Divisions to recruit, retain and support higher tier players who are looking for an org to help support their in-game growth and development, whilst at the same time become an active and contributing member of Damage Inc. 
    This program is for Initiates who are:
    - Top 1% in their respective game ( Tier 1)
    - Interested in serious competitive play
    Graduation Requirements:
    - 8 Comp Events and/or Coaching Sessions (Any combination of Comp Events and Coaching Sessions are accepted)
    - 15 Posts
    - 250 REP
    An Elite Initiate can decide later in the cohort to graduate using the standard requirements, as long as one of either the Elite OR Standard requirements are met by the date full member applications are due.

    Frequently Asked Questions 
    Q: Where do I find the events?
    A: All events are scheduled on the Community Calendar and are converted automatically to your system clocks timezone. The events will be hosted in the Social Lounge at the top of the DI TeamSpeak. Rooms will be created for the Events and tagged with [SW] and the title of the event. Make sure you are on time and RSVP in order to earn  Community Tokens that are worth 3 REP an hour. If it is a multi hour event, you can join/leave for the 2nd hour as well. For Tournaments you will need to be on time and favorably come with your team 10 min before - details to registration can usually be found in the Event Description. 
    Q: Who organizes Super Weekend?
    A: Super Weekend is hosted by Community divisions, usually on a rotational basis. This time around DI-CV has the pleasure of doing so. DI-CV is led by @BananaB & @WizzleWuzzle & is contained within House Trident which is also led by @Hedd
    Q: How are the games decided?
    A: It's usually decided on by which games are the hottest and doing the best, as well as the amount of officers in each game's CoC that want to host an event for SW. Special Super Weekends will try to incorporate as many different games and special themed modes as possible. All Vices, Commanders and even Captains from Divisions and Orders pitch in and try to host the funkiest events for you! If you have suggestions for this or the next SW or special SW, don't be shy to make suggestions! 
    Q: How long does it take to set up everything?
    A: It all depends on how familiar those that are helping are. Due to new promotions somewhat frequently, we're always having to explain the concept and help those new guys get into the rhythm and understand the planning that goes into these events. But we spend the whole month getting the next one ready, so they're very high quality! Especially, the special Super Weekends take some extra time planning and only come around a few times a year. 
    Q: Can I join/help out with Super Weekend?
    A: The simple answer is Yes, but with restrictions. The longer answer is that we love when people assist us, but we like to keep it central and making sure we delegate properly. The best thing you can do is contact the current organizers with the specifics on how you'd like to help, and seeing if we can fit you in. Streamers, creative minds, co-hosts of all ranks and volunteering Officers are always welcome. 
    Q: What if I'm doing something big like a tournament during Super Weekend?
    A: During this weekend, Valhalla could possibly be taking place at the same time. Don't fret, enough events are up for you to participate. If you are running your own tournament, you can contact the organizers to see if you want to add your tournament to the SW, given that the time does not overlap with already scheduled events

    Congratulations to the following awards:
     JameTom (by GreatJackal)
    Awarded Star of Valor - 1st Class for your extraordinary commitment. JameTom, you had a rocky start in division command in a house with no leadership or support; and were staring down the barrel of demotion if you didn't turn things around. But you did, and not just a little amount, you rose up to become one of the best of the best Commanders in Damage Inc despite not having any House General for months, fighting the drowning morale of House Dagger as all the best and brightest were moving to other houses. It was an incredibly difficult situation, but instead of giving up like so many of your predecessors and peers, you doubled down and graduated your R6S seed with flying colors earning your first Eden. Then shortly after, you continue to demonstrate sacrifice and commitment to DI by splitting your division, giving R6S the crucial support it needs to enter Valhalla League, benefiting hundreds of members across DI. This is the level of leadership I look for in Commanders, and you have risen to be an outstanding role model to others. Well done!
     Siles (by 13thShade)
    Awarded Star of Valor - 1st Class for your extraordinary leadership. Siles, your performance the past few months as House General has been nothing short of heroic. You took Longbow when it was the size of a healthy division - just 80 members. In the four months since, Longbow has gone from laughingstock to top of its class, largely because of your dynamic leadership and mentoring. You quickly put strong commanders in place, and have selflessly given up three of them to leadership in the same month. This month, those same commanders have brought your house to victory in Operation New Blood V. Not only do you lead yourself, you have produced more quality leaders along the way. Your name will go down in history for this, Siles. Every day that Longbow stands, they will remember the man who brought it back from death, onward to its best life yet.
     Kanalizator (by GreatJackal)
    Awarded Star of Valor - 2nd Class for your outstanding commitment to LM. Your leadership in LM during a period where there was no Order Commander has shown great initiative and commitment, demonstrated by your ability to continue keeping Initiate Management running without being asked to. It takes guts and courage to step up and fill a vacuum, and your willingness to do so kept a crucial part of DI operational during a time of great need. Well done!
     Narichu (by 13thShade)
    Awarded Star of Valor - 2nd Class for your outstanding commitment to LM. The work you and Kana have done this past month has been incredible. Applications have continued to be processed accordingly, full member applications and such have gone off without any major hitches, and just overall LM has been well-run in absence of a commander. You've been a large part of this. Well done.

    The Spring Offensive

    "Warriors don't show their heart until the axe reveals it" - Floki
    Following a glorious winter surge of our strength and old power, we are now entering the next phase of our plan and have officially commenced the Damage Inc Spring Offensive. This initiative is a combination of efforts to consolidate and fortify our gains over the last few months, whilst at the same time, aggressively moving forward to continue our expansion and growth which will lay the foundation for us to dominate in the competitive gaming space in the next 3-4 months.
    Damage Inc has its goals aligned for this year, and we want to continue to be the provider of the best gaming experience online, as well as tackling some of the big issues that have been affecting us over the last few months as we grew.
    Core Damage Inc Objectives in the Spring Offensive
    1. Focus and build out the four key value areas of Damage Inc to be extremely well oiled and well run:
    - Coaching (individual and team)
    - Fight Night (ladder tournaments)
    - Thor's Challenge (open tournament, held monthly)
    - Valhalla League (elite league, held quarterly)
    (Owners: AFU)
    (Support: Division Commanders)
    2. Aggressive Growth to 3000+ members (500-800+ in each House) by seeding/splitting the "Big 7" games into each House:
    - League of Legends (1 x EU Division, 1 x NA Division)
    - Counter Strike Global Offensive (Done!)
    - Rainbow Six Siege (Done!)
    - Overwatch (Done!)
    - Apex Legends (Done!)
    - Call of Duty Warzone
    - Rocket League (Done!)
    (Owners: House Generals)
    (Support: LM, IMP & VP)
    3. Build the greatest user experience in gaming that ever existed by creating/streamlining tools to support our surge:
    - MDR that automatically uses Reliability, Skill and Game to match players to recommended teams (Done!)
    - MDR that provides personalized stats and data on activity requirement progress, roster info and training times
    - MDR that intelligently assists Officers to identify issues in their teams/divisions/houses to concentrate effort there
    - Improved notifications and tools for members to quickly see when their next event is, and be reminded of it
    (Owners: DI LT)
    (Support: DevOps)
     
    So effective 1 April:
    Warden Updates
    In an effort to align closer to how an Esports Org is run, as well as standardize standardize the role of Warden throughout Damage Inc, we are adding a minimum bar to Warden expectations since leadership has found inconsistencies with some Wardens not helping their Divisions remain active. A good Warden should be hosting 3-4 events per week (around 12-15 a month), but we have left this to the Division Vice's discretion to set these expectations. Leadership has created a bare minimum bar however, given the key roles that Wardens play with retention and integration of Initiates.
    All ♦Wardens will be required to:
    + Host 10+ events per month
    + Actively participate in the Initiation Integration process of their initiates (see below re: initiation changes)
     
    Event Host Ban Updates
    In an effort to streamline Event Host Bans and prevent excessive use/abuse, leadership has created standardized guidelines that specify who has the authority to issue, and under what circumstances they may issue, an Event Host Ban (which is effectively a demotion for a Warden). This approach allows Wardens who are genuinely remorseful and willing to rectify their mistakes an opportunity to exit the Event Host Ban early provided they receive extra training in Warden competencies.
    Event Host Bans will be issued by officers from  VP and  LM under the following circumstances:
    + A ♦Warden fails to host 10+ events a month
    + A ♦Warden receives 3+ negligence strikes in a 30 day period, for (but not limited to):
    - Event Hosting mistakes, no shows or other event hosting related negligence 
    - Failing to contact their initiates or other Initiate Integration related negligence (see below re: initiation changes)
    Event Host Bans will by default be 6 months, but may be exited early after 3 months if the ♦Warden:
    + Completes remedial Event Host Training with  IMP (required even if the ban was not event related)
    + Completes remedial Initiate Integration Training with  LM (required even if the ban was not initiate related)
    + Successfully host a supervised event with an  IMP officer, without fault
    Subsequent Event Host Bans will by default be 12 months, and may not be exited early.
     
    Initiation Updates
    A major revamp of how Ludus Magnus supports initiation is underway, with a huge focus on treating the initiates as the "customer", giving them significantly personalized support and direct access to Initiate Management staff. Lastly, Roster Leaders will play an increasingly important role with the Initiation Integration process and will come under direct authority of Ludus Magnus, aligning them closer to what a Team Captain of an Esports team actually does.
    Upon Initiate Application Acceptance:
    Within 2 Days - Roster Leaders contact the initiate (either via forum or discord) and starts integrating them by inviting them to events, conversations, discord hangouts and involving them in DI. Roster Leaders will need to check Master Division Registry daily to identify new initiates assigned to them. 
    Cohort Commences:
    Day 1 - Cohort Starts
    Day 2 - Initiates have been divided up into groups of 40-50 and assigned to a dedicated Initiate Manager that is responsible for them. Roster Leaders must have reached out to their new initiates by this date (forum or discord), and be well on their way to integrating them by inviting them to events, conversations, discord hangouts and involving them in DI. Induction Events posted on calendar no later than this day by LM Vice.
    Day 3 - First Check In (Introduction). The Initiate Manager PM's all 40-50 of their assigned initiates to confirm whether they have heard from their Roster Leader and informing them about the upcoming Induction Events of the first weekend.
    Day 5 - Non compliant Roster Leaders are striked by LM for negligence, and given a final order to reach out to their Initiates within 48 hours. 
    Day 5-8 - First Weekend of the month, Induction Events are held. Two events on Friday, Saturday and Sunday, of which one is in NA timezone, and the other is in EU timezone, for a total of six events. Initiates only need to attend one, that best suits their schedules (and its optional)
    Day 7 - Second check by Initiate Managers on assigned initiates who were ignored by their chain of command to confirm the Roster Leaders have reached out. If the Roster Leader ignored again, they are striked once more and demoted by LM and issued a six month Event Host Ban.
    Day 14 - Mid Month Check In. Initiate Managers PM all their assigned initiates to check in to see how the integration is going (must be via forum PM). Questions such as "Are they getting involved with events?" and "Has their team been helpful in making them feel welcome" are asked, as well as a check to see progress on Initiate Requirements (they should be 50%+ complete now). They are also reminded again about when the deadline for the requirements and full member applications are.
    Day 21 - Final Check In, asking the same questions about chain of command involvement, progress towards initiate requirements and reminded once again about upcoming cohort deadlines for requirements and full member applications.
    Day 28 - Full Member Applications deadline
    Day 29 - Final processing of applications by LM
    Day 30 - Graduation list provided to Chief Aide for announcement
     
    Early Graduation Updates
    We want to provide an opportunity for initiates that have shown leadership potential to have, once again, an early path to graduation. We have experimented not having it, and having it - and it is clear for us to keep up with our aggressive growth we need more empowered leaders to help support our infrastructure. So it will be returning.
    An Initiate will be able to graduate early from Initiation if:
    + They obtain  Odin's Kin II
    + They take an Officer Position for at least a 3+ month commitment
    If an officer who graduated early steps down for any reason before 3+ months, they will be demoted back to Initiate and required to re-complete initiation.
     
    Profession Updates
    A refresh of our Professions are necessary given the other changes with initiation, as well as to strategically support DI initiatives and programs. Professions are designed to provide new avenues for members to earn REP, as well as provide development opportunities for members to grow and become more skilled in these professions. Professions also address key strategic initiatives of DI that require specific skills to overcome.
    New Professions that are being added:
    + Editorial - Will own the "DI Newspaper", running editorial functions of writing, content development etc
    + Esports - Casters and Tournament Admin Assistants that will work deeply in the live event space
    + Moderation - Support the moderation of the site, help with reporting, and guide members through code of ops interpretation
    More info on these will be provided in their own Code of Ops pages.
    Professions that are being expanded:
    -- DevOps - Consists of 4 sub-tiers: Graphic Design, Systems Engineering, Front-End & Back-End development, expanded to three tiers of skills:  Apprentice,  Journeyman and  Master.
    -- Coaching - Initiates may now join this profession and earn extra REP to graduate faster
    -- Recruiting - Initiates may now join this profession and earn extra REP to graduate faster
    Initiates can join all the professions, except DevOps, vastly expanding the ways to earn REP in DI and allowing for faster graduations.
    Professions that are being retired:
    ~ Mentoring - Given the changes around Roster Leaders and Cohorts, this profession will no longer be needed.
     
    Award & Achievement Updates 
    In a bid to bolster unique achievements within Damage Inc, and to encourage further growth and competition, we will be rewarding members and officers who break records.
    Record Holder achievements will be added for:
    + Most REP accrued in a Month
    + Most Recruits in a Month
    + Most Events Attended in a Month
    + Most Events Hosted in a Month 
    + Biggest Division in DI History (Commander & Vice) 
    These achievements will be a unique and rare, demonstrating that the members above broke a previous high record/score. Should the score be beaten again, the former record holder will lose the achievement to the new record breaker. In other words, only one of these achievements can ever be in circulation at a time (except Biggest Division, which will be two at a time for Commander/Vice who achieved the record respectively)
        
    ----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
    Everything about this initiative puts the member and initiate at the front and center of what we are doing. In order for DI to grow to reach these goals, a member must be able to find what they are looking for, quickly and easily upon joining DI.
    This is one of the most exciting times to be in DI - what we are going to do in the next 3-4 months is make history,

    Fight Night Is Here

    "We have one life... so go and live it." - Lagertha
    We are thrilled to re-launch Fight Night as a core community initiative in DI, run by the AFU.
    Similar to leagues run by XIX and other divisions, Fight Night is a quarterly league where you compete against other teams to climb the ELO ladder. Your starting ELO will depend on the tier of your team, which is equal to the highest tier of any player on that team.
    To team up:
         + Ensure each of your team members has a Skill Tier assigned.
         + Create a team using this topic.
         + Familiarize yourself with basic rules so you know how to challenge your opponents.
    At its launch, Fight Night will support the following games, assuming each game reaches the required base number of teams (10+):
         + Rainbow Six Siege
         + Overwatch
         + League of Legends
         + CS:GO
         + Rocket League
    Team captains, make sure to include your main game in your team description in the tournaments plugin - see the links above for details.
    Team creation is open NOW. Playing matches and creating challenges will open April 7th. Fire up your cars, grab your machine guns, and load into the Rift - DI's first ladder is about to go live!
    As this league progresses, we will work to have a Discord Bot that will simplify challenges, a better ELO ladder, and other, "prettier" functions.
    For now, enjoy this awesome new ladder coming to DI, and direct any questions to @sukitachu, @TinyMario, and the great staff of AFU.

    Frequently Asked Questions 
    Q: Where do I find the events?
    A: All events are scheduled on the Community Calendar and are converted automatically to your system clocks timezone. The events will be hosted in the Social Lounge at the top of the DI TeamSpeak. Rooms will be created for the Events and tagged with [SW] and the title of the event. Make sure you are on time and RSVP in order to earn  Community Tokens that are worth 15 REP an hour. If it is a multi hour event, you can join/leave for the 2nd hour as well. For Tournaments you will need to be on time and favorably come with your team 10 min before - details to registration can usually be found in the Event Description. 
    Q: Who organizes Super Weekend?
    A: Super Weekend is hosted by Community divisions, usually on a rotational basis. This time around DI-CV has the pleasure of doing so. DI-CV is led by @BananaB & @WizzleWuzzle & is contained within House Trident.
    Q: How are the games decided?
    A: It's usually decided on by which games are the hottest and doing the best, as well as the amount of officers in each game's CoC that want to host an event for SW. Special Super Weekends will try to incorporate as many different games and special themed modes as possible. All Vices, Commanders and even Captains from Divisions and Orders pitch in and try to host the funkiest events for you! If you have suggestions for this or the next SW or special SW, don't be shy to make suggestions! 
    Q: How long does it take to set up everything?
    A: It all depends on how familiar those that are helping are. Due to new promotions somewhat frequently, we're always having to explain the concept and help those new guys get into the rhythm and understand the planning that goes into these events. But we spend the whole month getting the next one ready, so they're very high quality! Especially, the special Super Weekends take some extra time planning and only come around a few times a year. 
    Q: Can I join/help out with Super Weekend?
    A: The simple answer is Yes, but with restrictions. The longer answer is that we love when people assist us, but we like to keep it central and making sure we delegate properly. The best thing you can do is contact the current organizers with the specifics on how you'd like to help, and seeing if we can fit you in. Streamers, creative minds, co-hosts of all ranks and volunteering Officers are always welcome. 
    Q: What if I'm doing something big like a tournament during Super Weekend?
    A: During this weekend, Valhalla could possibly be taking place at the same time. Don't fret, enough events are up for you to participate. If you are running your own tournament, you can contact the organizers to see if you want to add your tournament to the SW, given that the time does not overlap with already scheduled events

    "The space between life and death, that's where we are the most alive" - Floki
    June 2019, New Blood IV victors...
    House

    HOUSE DAGGER
    led to victory by former House General 13thShade
    Division

    led to victory by former Commander  Weeb
    Record: 124 Recruits
     
    A Contest Of The Gods
    Four times a year, for many years, a great showdown before the gods begin. The Houses, Divisions and individual members battle it out in a show of strength, with glory, power and prestige showered upon those who best their opponents. The theme of each competition varies, including contests in most reputation, recruits, posts, events attended and so on.
    The month of March 2020, is the Recruiting challenge
    So what are the Stakes?
     
    Best House 
    + House of the Year - 4 Points 
    + Top of the House Sort Order
    House of the Year - 2019 final scores:

    House of the Year is a cumulative score of the triumphs obtained my officers and members for their house throughout the year. Triumphs are obtained by doing something truly great, such as winning Valhalla League, graduating a new Division, or beating 30+ other Divisions in a contest like this. All of these achievements go towards House of the Year standings.
    Members who have been in the winning House for 6+ months at the end of the year, earn the extremely prestigious:
    House of the Year award
    Scoring will be based on the House Standings, which uses the recruiting ratio of that house (number of recruits divided by number of members) for the month of March to determine a score. You can see from last months score that House Trident came first with the highest ratio (gold crown).
     
    Best Division
    + The  Vanquisher triumph for the Commander and Vice (only counted once)
    + TheBest Division Medal for all members of the division who participated (recruited 1+ member)
    The Vanquisher triumph is worth 5 points towards the House of the Year leaderboard, and a prestigious triumph that is only awarded four times a year. The Best Division Medal is another award that is only awarded four times a year, and considered extremely prestigious by members.
    Scoring will be based on the Division Standings, and will use the raw recruits number from each Division (not ratios) for the month of March. This allows every division to participate, including seeds.
     
    Best Individual
    Individual members who perform the best, will be awarded by the following place:
    1st.  Star of Valor - 1st Class award and 500 REP
    2nd. Star of Valor - 2nd Class award and 350 REP
    3rd.  Star of Valor - 3rd Class award and 250 REP
    4th. 150 REP
    5th. 150 REP
    Scoring will be based on the Member Standings, and will use the raw recruits number for each individual for the month of March.
     
     
     
    FAQ
    - I am an Initiate - can I still participate?
    Yes! and you should!
    - When does the scoring end?
    When the standings reset at the end of the month. I think it is midnight of the last day, but dont quote me.
    - If my Division wins, will everyone get the Best Division Medal?
    Only members and initiates who helped their Division win will be eligible. This is defined by getting at least 1+ recruit this month.
    - How do I recruit someone?
    There are some excellent guides lying around the forum, this is one of those. I have found that members who want to participate do best when they ask their close friends to join.
    Feel free to ask any questions!
    Remember, Odin is watching.

    February 2020 News

    "Don't waste your time looking back. You're not going that way" - Ragnar Lothbrok
    Announcements You Should Know
    Monthly Activity Requirements
    We have shifted from Weekly to Monthly Activity Requirements, to get background on the issue read this and to see what the new requirements are and the associated exemptions, read this:
    Event Host Bans
    Officers & Wardens who host poor quality events, or cancel too many events, will receive an Event Host Ban from the VP. Wardens who receive a Hosting Ban will be demoted and ineligible for this rank whilst a ban is active (as its core purpose is to host events). Officers may/may not keep their rank based on case by case review from VP. If any of you are involved in a low quality event, make sure to report it to one of the officers of Vetus Praesidio listed here. No one in DI should have a shitty event experience, its super important to us!
    Comp Team Bans
    Members who fail to show up to team practices, scrims, tournaments or meet their Roster's commitment expectations will receive a Competitive Team Ban. Everyone seems to be "talking about wanting to be in a comp team", but when placed in one they simply do not commit. This creates frustration and annoyance for other players on the roster who actually cares, and hence we want to avoid cases like this. Do not ask to be in a comp team, if you cannot commit to consistently attend 3+ practices a week, and 1+ scrim/tournament each weekend.
    If you get a Comp Team Ban, you will not be permitted to:
    - Participate in Valhalla League, Thor's Challenge, or any other DI wide official tournament
    - Join a competitive team
    These bans may be issued by respective ranks for the the following duration (not more, not less):
    3 or 6 Months:
    Division Vice (Captain)
    Team Leader (Captain)
    ♦Roster Leader (Warden) 
    3, 6 or 12 Months:
    House General (General)
    Order Commander (Commander)
    Division Commander (Commander)
     
    Companion and Elite Rank Changes
    ♠Elite will be given to all members who are Top 1% within their game (see this announcement).
    ♥Companion will be given to all members who earn 500+ REP in a month. It will last for the month that it was earned, and the following entire month. It needs to be re-earned in the following month to be kept for the month after that.
    Why does this matter? Both have a Tier B Activity Requirements Exemption. Pretty neat, well done to those who earn it!
    Other cool stuff that will have their own Announcements
    Community Competition with Prizes, Awards and Triumphs up for grabs - this month is: Recruiting (So recruit as much as you can!, your house and division scores depend on it, and this extremely rare Best Division Medal is up for grabs). Announcement will be out tomorrow.
    Valhalla League will start later this month, for the following leagues/games:
    - LoL EU
    - OW EU
    - OW NA
    - CSGO EU
    Announcement will be out by the weekend with prizes, structure etc.

Ensure you use this to the glory of DI and always for the best of the community as a whole.

    Congratulations to the February 2020 Imperium Graduates. It has always been seen as an honor to lead members, and therefore disrespectful if the absolute best effort was not given when presented with the opportunity. You have gone through a hard month in the Imperium Order, where many of your peers fell and weren’t able to reach the standards set for Officers within DI, but you’ve prevailed and shown you’ve got what it takes.

    Congratulations to the following awards:
     Synth (by GreatJackal)
    Awarded Star of Valor - 1st Class for your extraordinary leadership in helping CSGO enter Valhalla League. You spent a lot of effort building up your Division to split and earn that incredibly difficult Eden Triumph, but then your split partner tanked and the split failed. Despite this tragic loss, you grit your teeth and worked incredibly hard to try again. This hard work paid off the second time and you gave House Javelin their CSGO Division. Not only this, but you also sent your Division Vice to command 4th Division in House Sabre. All these actions came at great personal sacrifice of yourself and your division - but like a true leader, you knew it was short term. You played the long game, knowing the profound impact this sacrifice would have on DI and its members over time. These qualities and actions is extremely exemplary Synth, and set the example of what we want all our Commanders to be like. Placing DI above the needs of yourself or your Division shows dedication and loyalty to DI that extremely few can match. You will be remembered as "The Commander who got CSGO into Valhalla League", and forever a legend. Well done.
     KidaSacheil (by GreatJackal)
    Awarded Star of Valor - 2nd Class for your outstanding commitment to DevOps during the last couple of months. Not only has your contributions been significant on the tools like the Member Standings, but your overall "can do" attitude towards multiple projects that are under development. You never complain, never say "no" and you are one of the first to step up and help your fellow team members get things done on time. Your empathy towards the user experience on behalf of Members and Officers who use our tools every day demonstrates your commitment to excellent engineering and design practices, but also your commitment to making the experience of Members and Officers in Di much more enjoyable This makes you an awesome team member to work with, and the impact you have already had on all the members is massive. Keep it up Kida, well done!
     Chris (by GreatJackal)
    Awarded Star of Valor - 3rd Class for your excellent leadership in keeping House Javelin functioning whilst it does not have a House General. I know the last few weeks has been quite busy as you juggle the responsibilities of your own Division but also at the same time ensuring the House does not collapse. You are always there to mentor your fellow Commanders, guide those who need help and act as an example to others within House Javelin, all whilst not being asked to do so, and never complaining. You took initiative because you saw a need, and this is a rare officer quality that demonstrates your extremely high commitment and loyalty to DI. Soon you won't need to carry this burden anymore, but DI thanks you nonetheless! Well done Chris!

    Frequently Asked Questions 
    Q: Where do I find the events?
    A: All events are scheduled on the Community Calendar and are converted automatically to your system clocks timezone. Rooms will be created for the Events and tagged with [SW] and the title of the event. Make sure you are on time and RSVP in order to earn  Community Tokens that are worth 15 REP an hour. If it is a multi hour event, you can join/leave for the 2nd hour as well. For Tournaments you will need to be on time and favorably come with your team 10 min before - details to registration can usually be found in the Event Description. 
    Q: Who organizes Super Weekend?
    A: Super Weekend is hosted by Community divisions, usually on a rotational basis. This time around DI-CV has the pleasure of doing so. DI-CV is led by @BananaB & @WizzleWuzzle & is contained within House Trident which is also led by @Sif
    Q: How are the games decided?
    A: It's usually decided on by which games are the hottest and doing the best, as well as the amount of officers in each game's CoC that want to host an event for SW. Special Super Weekends will try to incorporate as many different games and special themed modes as possible. All Vices, Commanders and even Captains from Divisions and Orders pitch in and try to host the funkiest events for you! If you have suggestions for this or the next SW or special SW, don't be shy to make suggestions! 
    Q: How long does it take to set up everything?
    A: It all depends on how familiar those that are helping are. Due to new promotions somewhat frequently, we're always having to explain the concept and help those new guys get into the rhythm and understand the planning that goes into these events. But we spend the whole month getting the next one ready, so they're very high quality! Especially, the special Super Weekends take some extra time planning and only come around a few times a year. 
    Q: Can I join/help out with Super Weekend?
    A: The simple answer is Yes, but with restrictions. The longer answer is that we love when people assist us, but we like to keep it central and making sure we delegate properly. The best thing you can do is contact the current organizers with the specifics on how you'd like to help, and seeing if we can fit you in. Streamers, creative minds, co-hosts of all ranks and volunteering Officers are always welcome. 
    Q: What if I'm doing something big like a tournament during Super Weekend?
    A: During this weekend, Valhalla could possibly be taking place at the same time. Don't fret, enough events are up for you to participate. If you are running your own tournament, you can contact the organizers to see if you want to add your tournament to the SW, given that the time does not overlap with already scheduled events
