As part of the News Team we go to the far corners of XS in search of news and information important for all our members to know. As such, I had to get the inside scoop on the newest addition to XS, the Xiled Elite membership. In order to get this scoop, I had the privilege to not only sit down with the vice president of XGN XGN HELL5FURY 7, but also the owner MR. XGN.
These two hard working members of XS had a lot to tell me about the Xiled Elite membership. So I sat in an Xbox party and got down to business in search of answers. In the beginning of the interview I asked XGN HELL5FURY 7 what the Xiled Elite Membership was and he had this to say, “it’s a special membership that represents our communities, to help our cause which in turn helps support the necessary functions that come with extra benefits for the communities as a whole. The membership itself not only benefits the communities for things such as our forums, but also with that comes the extra stuff for buying it.” On the same hand as what the membership is, we asked how do our members benefit from having it? XGN HELL5FURY 7 continued, “when you buy the XS membership you are not only helping with the monthly expenses for XS, but also you are helping our amazing communities and furthering our future.”
Interestingly enough after learning the benefits of the membership and the use it has for our communities as a whole, we asked MR. XGN “what benefit does it have for XS and why is it so important?” Thoughtfully MR. XGN said “the XE membership has many benefits for the communities including the monthly costs for our forums, cms, and Discord to name a few of them. However aside from the cost of the upkeep of the everyday essentials, it’s something that gives back to the communities more so than what it takes.”
This being said XGN HELL5FURY 7 explained, “there are many different levels and benefits of the membership in which I would like to add:

When asked about why our members should buy the membership XGN HELL5FURY 7 commented, “simply put for notoriety. It was/ is a way to give back when you achieve Division Staff. You have worked with many, and many more look up to you. It’s these ranks that start paying back to the communities by passing on what they have learned and for example the XE program. Not only that but it gives our members bragging rights for knowing they’ve helped to contribute to something that’s bigger than all of us.” With that being said knowing how to contribute and what the membership does in general I had a thought. “Who’s idea was the XE Membership?” It was none other than MR. XGN who answered this time and we were astounded by his response. “It was my idea. I saw how many other communities were getting sponsored and how they did things. However I wasn’t really sure how I was going to do it. So I came up with the idea for the XE membership in order to not only support ourselves but to give more back to the communities that what we received.”
With most of the details out in the open there were a few other things that we were looking into for a little more insight. “What are you hoping to accomplish with the membership in the future?” Mr. XGN was so excited he answered, “we hope to elaborate and expand on the membership where we hope to partner with our sponsors to give back even more XS exclusive merchandise with this subscription. We hope to later launch a new tier that offers 2 to 3 items more monthly than the current $9 a month subscription. The more people that subscribe the greater opportunities we have to expand.”
XGN HELL5FURY 7 had this to add, “it also gives our members a sense of self worth that carries into not only our communities but in real life as well. This gives all our members the opportunity to make a difference and give them the recognition they deserve. In the end of the interview both MR. XGN and XGN HELL5FURY 7 had these final thoughts, “we would like to thank everyone who has subscribed. Every cent helps towards our goals and what we hope to accomplish. We want to show that everyone is appreciated and know that they are important for our future.”
So there you have it folks! That is the rundown of the new Xiled Elite membership. On behalf of not only the news team, MR. XGN, XGN HELL5FURY 7, but also the entire BoD and Division Staff, thank you for your contribution to our cause, helping to further our communities and taking it to new heights each and every day. We appreciate all you do for us and XS in its entirety. We would also like to thank MR. XGN, XGN HELL5FURY 7, and BoD for all their hard work and dedication to give back to this communities and doing amazing jobs and what they do.
