In our amazing community, we have multiple departments that encourage gaming both competitive and cooperative. We expand on gaming and the social aspect of it, making our community different from others. Within the many folds of XGN, we have Departments including Events. The newly promoted Head of the Events Department XGN Ish 7 sat down with us and gave a bit of insight on his Department.
Being the brand new head of events he had this to say,” the reason I took up the post of events head was my passion for hosting not only game nights and tournaments but bringing others together to game. I love seeing people happy, getting together and just having a great time is my calling.” There are many great things about the Events team but according to Mr. Ish there were improvements that needed to be made. When asked about said improvements he elaborated a little more.
“There were many staff members that were inactive, so in order for things to go smoother I removed them in search of staff that will be more active. In doing so I have gained more staff and created a few new sections that I find will be a great addition. One of these teams I have pulled together is the outreach staff, who assist the tournament staff in getting more people interested in participating in these events. I have also started a crown team who essentially crowns those who win the tournaments. Another of these groups I hope to get together is a streaming team, like the outreach staff, they will assist the tournament team. But the function of this team will be to stream them, so others can watch as it happens.”
Speaking of Events XGN Ish 7 shed a little light on what is to come in the next few months that has many of us excited. This weekend there will be an R6 (Rainbow 6 Siege) Tournament. Many of our members have been looking forward to this one for some time now, so the staff has decided it’s time for another one. We’ve started an annual pro-bowl which is beginning in November, a Div vs. Div (in which members can chose the game) and Xiled finals in July of next year. Many of these events are a few months away but even so they are very much anticipated.
With all of these exciting events many of our members have one question: are there any staff positions open? Mr. Ish has told me that there are in fact openings to be filled. There are not only staff positions but also he is currently looking for a co-head for the department. However, XGN Ish 7 had this to say, “I am not only looking to find active members but there are specific qualities I am looking for. For an example I want someone who has a drive and a passion for the team like I do. Someone who Is dependable, on top of things and will work hard to make it fun for everyone.” Now as exciting as that is some of you may not know where to apply for the events team so I will tell you, its https://join.xiled.gg/xgn/
Similarly XGN ISH 7 had this to say about the upcoming changes being made to the department and future goals he has. “In the future, my goal is to see us with over one hundred members to help correlate more events throughout the Xiled Ones. We plan to get a full staff so we can host these events that we are planning for the near future. Its exciting to see these changes and actually see them succeed. My hope is that once these changes are made it would help bring us all under one umbrella so to speak. We are hoping that once everything is said and done that we could reach out and gain more support for a greater cause. After all that’s what we stand for is accepting everyone as they are and treating others with respect. Also if you do have a passion for what we do please feel free to apply.”
There is a matter of a few more things the Head of Events asked that we place In the spotlight. Promotions were recently given to capable and well deserving members.
