5th Year Anniversary!
As many of you no doubt have heard – this month was our 5 Year Anniversary and it was a magnificent celebration with all of you. Looking back to when it all started on that fateful day of 23 September 2012, we’ve come a long such an incredibly long way, achieved many glories and seized many triumphs. Hopefully this milestone becomes only one of many – with exciting times ahead as new divisions are formed and new triumphs are seized. Keep it up DI – it has been an honour to be your leader.
New Officers Page
As we continue to trim and cut red tape throughout DI – part of it was updating the Officer’s page so that all information could be displayed on one page and easier digested. It contains all kinds of new information – including how to earn Elder.
Here it is: http://dmg-inc.com/officers/
Honor Points & Awards Update
After a long break – Honor Points have been re-introduced. You can find them in our Awards Section. Each Award has a Honor Point value assigned to it – which is one of the pathways of earning Elder. The awards have also been updated further, to include the re-polished Officer Achievements under Legendary Triumphs and Glories. Member Achievements will get a makeover next!
Code Of Ops Updates – Important!
Several of the Activity Requirements have been updated – lowering the threshold for many groups.
You can view the updated version here. The reason for this update is to continue to refine the balance between healthy contribution and being overburdened. The activity requirements are designed for the typical member to just have fun, join in events, and participate with the community on TS and forums without having to consciously worry about it. It is meant to come naturally – so lowering the threshold is seen as a way to make this activity more organic – whilst also maintaining a minimum standard.
Congratulations to the Cohort of September 2017 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.
Top 3 Initiates of this Cohort:
The following 3 members finished at the top of their Cohort, and have been given their Final Oaths with honours. Congratulations:
1st – BalisticPlanet

These 80 members have graduated the September 2017 Cohort, Congratulations:
Officer Achievements are critical in recognizing the members of the community who have worked very hard in helping their teams, divisions, legions and overall the clan. Many people can be an officer, but very few have the stamina to endure through the challenges and obstacles that comes with being an officer for so long. For those officers who endured in their roles and served at least six months in a particular position, they are awarded an officer achievement depending on their position. Many achievements are a pre-requisite for a higher appointment in DI.

Specctre ~ Black Cross (By GreatJackal)
Awarded Black Cross for legendary commitment and service to Damage Inc as an officer, leader and guardian. Specctre began his journey with Damage Inc in June 2015 and has served in a wide variety of officer positions including Division Vice and Command of 1st Division, later becoming the only person in Damage Inc to date to have won the legendary laurel triumph titled “Victor” twice when he helped lead 1st Division to seize two major victories in January and April 2016 forever sealing Damage Inc in the Stronghold Kingdom’s hall of fame. After his tenure with 1st Division, Specctre was appointed to the prestigious post of Aide-de-Camp to the Leader based on his famous cool, calm and collected leadership style. Here Specctre excelled, playing a huge part in the collection and display of information on DI’s site, scribing part of the history and assisting hundreds of members, officers and members of leadership to ensure people have what they need to do well. Specctre’s impact in the leadership circles has been absolutely priceless and he will forever be known for his legacy as a legendary and decorated officer of Damage Inc. Well Done.
OverwatchTho ~ Commendation – Gold (By Eastonn8)
Awarded Commendation – Gold for his absolutely amazing work in turning Overwatch into one of DI’s main games. 3 months ago, Overwatch was faltering with no clear light at the end of the tunnel, but you’ve proven that Overwatch has a place here in DI, by not only reviving the Division, but also pioneering a split, with another one on the horizon. Your hard work doesn’t go unnoticed, keep up the fantastic work. Thank you.
Nom ~ Commendation – Gold (By AFDragon)
Awarded Commendation – Gold for her exceptional leadership skills, not only amongst the Justice team, but amongst DI. Regardless of the ammount of Justice Cases that come with a swarm of angry PM’s, Nom has managed to mentain the balance in DI, and not favoritize any of the parties engaged in a Justice Case. Being understaffed for a good period of time hasn’t stopped her to continue stay on top of every discipline breach that she has been facing with her team. Well done, Nom!
Eastonn8 ~ Commendation – Gold (By AFDragon)
Awarded Commendation – Gold for his extraordinary commitment to the Legion Commander position he has definitely excelled in. Easton is and will remain by far one of the best Legiond Commanders DI ever had. He was given a Legion that was struggling on all fronts but he has managed to rally up the Commanders and bring Legion Trident to the healthy spot it’s sitting today in. I am certain your Commanders will feel your absence but you have certainly built a legacy.
CindersKnight ~ Commendation – Gold (By AFDragon)
Awarded Commendation – Gold for his commitment to the Initiate Management department. Five months ago, Cinders decided to take the lead for the IM dept, and become Head IM. Ever since he took the position, the Initiate Management department has been constantly improving. He adopted new ways and implemented new systems to ensure that our initiates have an enjoyable environment. Although retention is very difficult to fight against, Cinders rallied up his team and managed to improve it slowly each month. Thank you, Cinders, keep up the great work!
Xtream ~ Commendation – Gold (By AFDragon)
Awarded Commendation – Gold for the countless hours and huge amount of work he put into the creation of the existent Officer Guides. Every each one of these guides has been extremely helpful for new officers. He was and still is constantly putting in the effort to keep them updated, relevant to the policy changes. Thank you for the excellent work and dedication!
Enigma ~ Commendation – Gold (By GreatJackal)
Awarded Commendation – Gold for the modern and captive video work he continues to do for Damage Inc. The new Damage Inc Trailer has earned wide acclaim and has no doubt had a major impact in helping spread the message about our community and what we seek to create. Video creation no doubt takes an incredible amount of time – and we appreciate it!
Nechtmarrie ~ Commendation – Silver (By AFDragon)
Awarded Commendation – Silver for his great impact as Legion Commander. Nechtmarrie was and still remains one of the must suited persons for Legion Commander, given his previous legendary experience as Commander of Community division. He has been constantly improving his Legion performance, as well as monitoring the growth of the ventures developing within the Community division, bringing DI a few steps closer to reaching it’s goals. Thank you, Necht!
Infinity ~ Commendation – Silver (By GreatJackal)
Awarded Commendation – Silver for saving 6th Division. Turning the tides of a fading Division has never been an easy task. Yet despite great losses in numbers, Infinity managed to turn the ship around and get back to the 40 members it once held. With all the challenges it brought, you re-established a once wealthy Division to its former glory and we are looking forward to seeing it flourish again.Well done!
Taka ~ Commendation – Silver (By AFDragon)
Awarded Commendation – Silver. You made an excellent effort in your AM duties during September. The Head Activity Manager was away for the majority of this period and you took over that role without ever being asked. This showed great initiative and a strong desire to ensure the AM team did not falter during this period. Not only were you carrying out the work of an Activity Manager but trying to resolve any issues that arose and making sure everything ran smoothly and efficiently.
13thShade ~ Star of Valor – 2nd Class (By Nechtmarrie)
Awarded Star of Valor – 2nd Class – When you started as the commander of 10th Division you immediately gave it a giant boost and got it where it is today. Keep on the good work and keep growing that division!
Gammaray ~ Star of Valor – 2nd Class (By Nechtmarrie)
Awarded Star of Valor – 2nd Class – For serving as the division commander of 7th Division for 7 months. You kept the Division stable and thriving during that time. Thank you for all your hard work during your time as the commander of DI-VII!
LilRex ~ Commendation– Bronze (By Nechtmarrie)
Awarded Commendation – Bronze for your support as the 2IC for the PUBG helped the venture grow in the division it is today. Great job as the venture 2IC!
RoadkillHD~ Commendation– Bronze (By AFDragon)
Awarded Commendation – Bronze. You made great effort in your AM duties during September. Achieving above what was expected of you when the Head Activity Manager was away and you had no Chief of Staff to assist you. With staff numbers down and no guidance you managed to stay on top of all the task required of an Activity Manager not faltering to pressure or leaving the work to others.
MrSfke ~ Star of Valor – 3rd Class (By Nechtmarrie)
Awarded Star of Valor – 3rd Class for recovering 12th Division from its broken state back to a stable Division. Not only did you bring in new members for your Division, but you brought in top tier players for the atlas scene. Good job!
