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

New Blood V

"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.

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.

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?

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.

Standardized Grading

"Warriors don't show their heart until the axe reveals it" - Floki
We are glad to unveil our standardized ranks within Damage Inc that will form an integral part of the new Master Division Registry and Member Standings. We understand right now that finding a team is frustrating. DI is so big with so many players that it can sometimes feel overwhelming finding a team with similar skills to you.
With Standardized Grading you will be able to:
+ Quickly find teams on the Master Division Registry that are looking for players of your skill level
+ Quickly find players of a desired skill range for your Roster using the new dynamic Member Standings
+ Understand what skill % someone in DI is without needing to know the ranks and ratings of every single game
+ Help better seed tournaments and events with matchmaking that is more balanced
Here are the Tiers:
 Tier 1 - Top 1%
 Tier 2 - Top 3%
 Tier 3 - Top 10%
 Tier 4 - Top 15%
 Tier 5 - Top 30%
 Tier 6 - Top 50%
 Tier 7 - Everyone
Other adjustments designed to provide to attract and retain top players:
+ The rank ♠Elite will be reserved for Top 1% Players of their respective game (this was our policy in 2018)
+ The Elite Initiation Program will return, designed to attract and retain top talent in DI (this was our policy in 2018)
For many years, the Ace of Spades has been the symbol of extremely high skill within Damage Inc. First making its introduction in 2017, players who were in the top echelons of their game were recognized throughout DI with the trademark Ace of Spades icon. In our peak in 2018, DI had an entire League of Legends Master/Challenger Team, and dozens of Rocket League Grand Masters, CSGO Faceit lvl 10 players and 4000 SR+ Overwatch players. The Elite Entry program enabled players to join a fast tracked, game focused initiation designed to integrate and use their skills to help other players. It was also provided an excellent source of new Coaches which other members could learn from, as well as staff for the Damage Inc Academy that supported the growth of all our players (regardless of skill).
Grading by Game:

How it will Work:
- You will have a profile field with your Tier, based on your primary game
- To update your Tier, you will post a request in the Engine Room for a Primary Game and Skill update
- The Order of AFU will verify ingame rank, and then update your profile's Primary Game and Skill based on your request
- Ingame ranks will be periodically reviewed (eg. end of season etc), to ensure up to date accuracy on a member's profile
- Having your rank tier displayed will be necessary to join any DI competitive rosters/tournaments or receive coaching
Yes, this means you will no longer be able to change your Primary Game yourself. This is to prevent trolls, smurfs etc undermining the entire system. We want to ensure a high degree of accuracy to improve every member's experience in finding and joining teams.
When it will be implemented:
- Leadership is working with AFU to determine those timelines right now, but ideally within the next 2 weeks
 
Feel free to ask any questions!

      Hello Everybody,
      It's pleasant to meet you.
      A few things about me:
      I'm from Israel, a web developer by day and a try hard Apex legends by night.
      I love animals and wish to adopt a dog or a cat or both... and maybe a hamster... 
      My goal is to polish my skills in Apex Legends in order to compete.
      My second goal is to acquire new friends to game with  
      Lets all have fun together! 
       
      Have a pleasant day and stay healthy!

      Not sure I will ever get used to you having the yellow star and purple name, but it does suit you considering which house you came from.
      Fortius Quo Fidelius, @Synth.
