Devil’s Rejects has been my home ever since I joined XGN almost 3 years ago. I’m proud to announce that we have accomplished something that we’ve been talking about for a good while, splitting the division. Victory is Imminent, or VII for short, is the newest division to breathe life into XGN. Am I sad to leave DR? Yes and no, we’ve accomplished so much in DR since I’ve been apart of XGN and even though I’ve left my home for a new division it’s for the best. We need strong leadership and teamwork to make the new division a success and I’m extremely happy and honored to be a part of that.
Congratulations to everyone who made this split possible and to the new division leader of VII, XGN SOLO VII. With the split comes many promotions and opportunities for our members. XGN Titan XCV has been promoted to Director for all his hard work in getting us to a splitting position. XGN SVD 7 is the new Division Leader for DR and the future Co-Divs are in the pit training for their next step. The leadership in both divisions is solid and sharp. I have no doubt that both divisions will thrive and improve our home in XGN.
I asked everyone for their opinion on the division split and those who responded had some interesting things to say. It’s nice to know that everyone is on the same page and sees the work that needs to be done. This accomplishment is what keeps XGN alive and growing. Being able to split your divisions and squads is one of the best feelings for me. Getting a successful split, seeing your family rally together to finish the process and rebuild feels great. Here’s what our members have to say about the split to VII.
“On the DR split I am proud that this accomplishment was made. It was well deserved and knowing that I contributed as a staff member makes me eager to build this new division just as well as DR was built.” -XGN NEGAN (T4H VII 1CPT)
“I think it was a fantastic idea. It has breathed new life into what was starting to grow uncontrollably. I really think that this split was much needed and well waited for. Now let’s look for the future and make this the best we can.” -XGN XENOPHOBIA (PARADOX VII SSG)
“DR squads that will be apart of the new division are Paradox, T4H, Awoken, and lastly Fallen. Just because we are in a new division now; nothing will change other then our division name and parts of our uniform. This division split opened a lot of opportunities for everyone involved. I’m really excited that I get to experience this. I sure everyone is, it’s exciting to see what happens for us next.” -XGN BISHOP II (PARADOX VII GEN)
“I think this a great accomplishment for not only the div staff but for the squads and there leaders. We are apart of XGN history” -XGN GUITAR HERO (PARADOX VII MAJ)
“I would say that the split created endless opportunities ,recognition across the board and, created a new home.” -XGN SOLO VII (VII Div-Lead)
“I am honored to be a part of my first ever division split. Truly feels amazing and the positive energy I’m seeing from the members is awesome as well. After explaining to them why we had to split and what it meant for us, they were excited about the future and hope to be a bigger part of “Victory Is Imminent”. Once a member understands a division split, they begin to feel like they helped contribute to the split no matter how little. This is what paves the way for a healthy division. Where members feel their presence is valued.” -XGN Quality VII (VII Co-Fo)
“It’s amazing and its awesome to see DR & VII bringing some momentum back to XGN. #LLDR and I guess now #LLVII” -XGN Tooly 7 (DR FNDR)
“The split was the hard work of many before me and many people with me . It’s the end of something amazing and the beginning of something even better . The leaders that will come from this split will change XGN and I am honored to be apart of it. As for what’s to come,simply Victory is Imminent.” -XGN Giggy VII (VII FNDR)
All this is true. We’ve had a lot of people working on this for some time. Everyone in DR and VII deserve thanks for what we as a team have accomplished. Now all that’s left is to keep growing and being the best we can be. The moral of this story? Work hard and never give up, if you want to go somewhere in XGN you can if you work hard enough and stay true to your goals. Thank you to everyone who made this split possible.
