Officer of the Month

They have all been awarded their respective Medals (see Awards) for achieving their coveted status.
Clan vs Clan & HQ Consul
Mely has been appointed DI-HQ’s Consul and has been busy reaching out and establishing relationships with other clans similar to us in size/games represented etc. There are currently several games in the pipeline being negotiated between these other clans and with our Commanders from 4th, 6th and 8th.
As soon as these are locked down (next week or so) it will be announced so all of DI can provide support/watch the stream and cheer on our legends! There is some very interesting stuff happening in this space, and therefore its crucial Team Leaders are keeping their teams up to date on training.
Almost 300 Members – Awesome
Its with great happiness I can announce that we are on track of achieving the Damage Inc 2016 Plan, not to mention we have broken all records on size, and the current spirit among DI has never been higher. Members are helping each other, communicating well and guiding our new initiates. This is beginning to pay off as well. Many clans out there brag about having 2000+ members, but when you look at their forums and teamspeak, you will soon find that all these clans count their “registered guests” as members, which of course is not accurate. DI on the other hand only represents its size by active members who contribute daily via ingame and community achievements.
Keep it up DI!
Fundraising – TeamSpeak/Hosting
The Donation tab will be appearing on the forums on the right side within a day or so. DI needs to raise a bunch of money in the next couple of months to pay for our annual TeamSpeak license, hosting, domain etc. This will be a big one, as we are upgrading our license to 256 members (because we are almost capping our TS out at 128!), so if you feel like helping out, you will get the “Clan Investor” Award for helping the clan tick over financially.
Summer Awards 2016
Congratulations for the following members for winning a Summer Award, for their efforts they get a Signature Bar and an Honor Star. Good effort
Congratulations to the Cohort of July 2016 for joining our ranks as full members. You have no doubt gone through a somewhat difficult process in the Ludus Magnum, where many of your peers fell to the relentless assaults from the activity managers, your Commanders and Team leaders who expect the highest performance from you and lastly, the barrier tests from the Initiate Managers. Due to the demand, some of you have been offered officer positions to take up more responsibility within the clan. Ensure you use this to the glory of DI and always for the best of the clan as a whole.
