    With winter finally coming to us all, it is time to turn our attention to the months of November and December. As many of you probably know, these two months are filled with a myriad of different holidays across the different cultures, including (but not limited to) Thanksgiving, Christmas and New Year's Eve. Aside from that, many people spend this time of the year with their family and/or travelling. As such, we, the Expeditionary Conclave, felt it best not to host new games during these two months. Rather we will dedicate this time to do a recap of the more popular games we hosted during the last year and as such, we will spend the nine weekends of these two months revisiting nine of our games (the last two events will be held on the last two Fridays of December, as to not interfere with Christmas and New Year's celebrations). 
    This weeks game will be Tabletop Simulator!
    Event layout
    Saturday, the 5th of November, at 9pm GMT/ 5pm EDT: Speed Runners
    Saturday, the 12th of November, at 9pm GMT/ 4pm EDT: Team Fortress 2
    Saturday, the 19th of November, at 9pm GMT/ 4pm EDT: MechWarrior Online
    Saturday, the 26th of November, at 9pm GMT/ 4pm EDT: Rising Storm/ Red Orchestra 2
    Saturday, the 3rd of December, at 9pm GMT/ 4pm EDT: Tabletop Simulator
    Saturday, the 10th of December, at 9pm GMT/ 4pm EDT: Guns of Icarus Online
    Saturday, the 17th of December, at 9pm GMT/ 4pm EDT: Payday 2
    Friday, the 23rd of December, at 9pm GMT/ 4pm EDT: Dungeon Defenders 2
    Friday, the 30th of December, at 9pm GMT/ 4pm EDT: Burnout: Paradise
    And just to make things even more fun, we'll put those of you who manage to attend all events in their entire duration down for one of our rare contest pips, for when forum awards make a return.

    Although belated, together with our old and steadfast Planetside 2 allies TRAF, the AJSA will bring our might to bear on the battlefields of Auraxis once again to celebrate our 3 year anniversary!
    Who: In case you don't know them, the Terran Republic Assault Force are our old allies from our golden days of Planetside 2. They are a highly-skilled, tightly-knit and friendly group, specialising in small-to-medium-scale infantry battles, in which they are able to hold their own against numerically superior enemies on a regular basis.
    Additionally, since the AJSA ingame outfit ceased to exist, TRAF has been carrying the torch for the AJSA, in that they provide a space for the AJSA members wanting to play the game to do so with their peers from both of our communities. As such we highly recommend anyone interested in playing Planetside 2 on the PC to check them out and join them. Please refer to this post for further details about our alliance with TRAF.
    Where: We will be using the AJSA Discord voice server for the duration of the event. The event will take place on the Emerald Server, as the Terran Republic.
    When: Friday, the 2nd of December at 8 pm EST (Saturday, the 3rd of December at 1 am GMT for the European members). The event will roughly run for 2 hours.
    What: During the event, we will fight on one of the 4 continents of Auraxis under the leadership of TRAF as a coherent group. Players will have assigned roles, depending on their skills, playstyle and inclinations, though players are free to request to change their role at any time. To keep the initiative, we will employ a highly mobile approach to our battles, redeploying across the continent to suit the tactical situation. Given the high skill-sets of our AJSA and TRAF PS2 veterans, coupled with our teamwork, we expect to be able to hold our own during battles against numerically superior enemies.
    If you have any additional comments or ideas, feel free to discuss them here. See you planetside!
