The PS division is a little bit of an odd one out within XGN with it being the one and only PlayStation division within XGN. However, this division of 400+ members holds its own among the rest of them with this last week of July 2019, PS was the top division in terms of growth with a respectful amount of 25 new members. At this point, it is undeniable that PS has been continuously on the rise with four active squads, each containing a good surplus of hardworking staff and friendly regular members.
One of the things that makes PS tick, is our hardworking division staff. Including the division leader XGN Gamma VII. Gamma has been the division leader since the 21st of May, 2019, and has done nothing but work hard to improve his division. He cracks down on issues and handles everything accordingly. All of PS’ staff members do, but Gamma brings it to a whole new extent as a division leader. “What we have in PS more than any other division, is the drive to be respected” -Gamma. Lately PS has had many members move up into the staff ranks, especially in Mystic squad which is nearing its squad split, bringing PS ever closer to it’s division split. On the topic of promotions, there is the recently promoted co-division leader, XGN Senju VII. I interviewed the man himself and asked for a few of his thoughts on his division.
“As the brand new Co Div Leader of PS what are your outlooks of it compared to other divisions?” Senju responded with some very constructive thoughts. “I plan to help Gamma split PS by the end of the year, although I thoroughly believe we can do it by the end of October. I also plan to adjust a few things once I come up to Div Lead to help the division run a bit more smoothly and efficiently, such as plan weekly workshops that I myself host so that I can learn the names of those in my division and so the members don’t feel intimidated by me due to my rank.” Afterwards, I asked him “Do you think PS represents PlayStation players well within XGN?” “No, though I believe this because most of us don’t really interact with other divisions/communities. I believe we act as XGN members should, but we don’t really represent PlayStation players if we don’t communicate outside of our division.” “In your opinion, what do you think directors and up think of PS?” He responded a little jokingly but it was also his legitimate opinion. “I believe that they think we’re doing a marvelous job and have good opinions of all of our div staff. I know they like me, anyways.” Finally, I asked him, “Do you think PS has the potential to become a top dog and maybe even a face of the community?” “Without a doubt. We’ve had the most growth in the past month, albeit only by five. We’ve got a lot of great people in our ranks and plenty more to come. In my eyes, PS will forever be the greatest division in the coalition.”
Due to PS being the only division within XGN that is centered around PlayStation there hasn’t been much in the way of events but with FGN setting up their own Ps4 division, it is very likely that there will be div vs div battles between AoD and PS. Make sure to tune in when that happens! “Heck yes, anything to keep members active and interested and having the ‘want’ to be in XS, FGN and even XGN.” Fierce Gods thoughts on AoD vs PS div vs div.
“To me, Xbox and PlayStation differ in the way of hunger. PS has that hunger to grow and to get everything done, to move up. As someone who was in the Xbox side back in 2013, I can tell you that the people over here work much harder and take the growth more seriously and are less toxic. Not to say that every Xbox player is and we do definitely have some toxic people here, but from my personal experience, the people on PlayStation are generally more pleasant. Another thing I’ve personally noticed is the familial feel is stronger over here because we kinda stick to ourselves as the only PlayStation division so we work together and harder. Because we gotta show the others over on PC and Xbox what we can do, so we gotta stay tight and form our own little cliques.” -XGN Daddy Svg, Colonel of Mystic Squad.
PS also has a thriving junior squad called Infernal. This squad holds many young members and quite a few aspiring ones as well. There is the excellent XGN Quack, a junior Lieutenant working on reaching Captain and doing his job as a staff member wonderfully. He is a positive role model for all junior members. PS also often makes forum spotlight and this week was one of those weeks, with Infamous squad placing first.
In conclusion, PS is a fantastic division filled to the brim with amazing people. Despite having the odds stacked against us, we pull ourselves up and occasionally we take the place on top. We’ve had many great staff members rise from PS including the amazing XGN CLR 7 who happens to be a forums admin and much more to come. I think it’s safe to say it’s reasonable to expect greatness from PS.
