    Welcome to the first Special Operation of 2018! We're trying out something a bit different than what we have done previously. We will be having a challenge across our community centered on March 31st. Each division (PC, Xbox, PS4) will tackle a game event exceeding 6 hours. So come out on March 31st and support your favorite division as we have a friendly competition against one another! Details for each division can be found below on the game chosen and the start time for that division.

    Commander WithaStick will be leading the charge into Monster Hunter World for their pick. If you're on PS4 and want to take out some monsters together with the PS4 community drop by.
    start time 6PM EST/ 11PM GMT March 31st

    Commander Rune will be readying his forces to fight hero on hero as they attempt to wrest control of objectives or just the entire stage in Overwatch. If you're on Xbox One and want to help defend OR attack then this is the place to be.
    start time 6PM EST/ 11PM GMT March 31st

    Commander Conan will be suiting up and dropping straight into the warzone that is Planetside 2! If you want non-stop action and likely the largest battlefield in any game then join up in our discord at the start time or during the event. For PC join us in Discord by clicking here.
    start time 1PM EST/ 6PM GMT March 31st

    Sea of Thieves Launch Week Activities
    Ahoy Matey! We're calling all the 'swashbucklers' of the AJSA to come set sail with us on the high seas this week in observance of the Sea of Thieves launch on Xbox. We have a ton of Sea of Thieves activities planned for members to take part in this week, including a special midnight launch party on Tuesday and an inaugural event on Friday. We'll have several staff members on deck to set up Club parties and groups on Wednesday and Thursday nights as well. We hope you can join us! Here is a small preview of what is to come:
    Midnight Launch Party - Staying up until Midnight to play the game at launch? Hang out with your friends in the AJSA! We're going to have a Club party up for all us night owls to play the game right when it launches. Come by, hang out, and play! Sea of Thieves Pirate Meet Up - Then for all our normal sleeping members, we're going to have a meet up at 7:30pm EST the same night. Don't play by yourself, play with your pirate friends! Learn the game, have fun, and earn some good loot. Sea of Thieves Inaugural Event - On March 23rd the AJSA will set sail in full force for our inaugural event on Friday night at 7:30pm EST. We expect a high turn out, so multiple parties and groups will be up simultaneously to accomodate everyone. We will do our best to try and get everyone in the same server, so we can all play together! We have an honor code among thieves in this 'Angry' pirate crew.....any scurvey dogs griefing other member's ships will result in you walking the plank! Non-pirate talk...you'll be removed from our group activities/event. Cya on the high seas!
    Minecraft Night [Mar. 15th] Recap
    On March 15th we had a special event for the new version of Minecraft on Xbox One. We had a solid group of around 12 members come in to play in the new version and test out all the features of the game. We also had a nice group discussion about where to take our Minecraft Nights, specifically on if we should move over from the old/regular 'Minecraft: Xbox One Edition' to this updated version of 'Minecraft'.
    Based on the input from the members who attended the event, it was a unanimous vote to move our world to the updated Minecraft. Opinions were split on if we should stick with the community world or make a new one, with most favoring staying with the current world. Here were some of our findings/thoughts:
    We were able to successfully upload our community world from the 'Minecraft: Xbox One Edition' to this new version of Minecraft, so we still have all our buildings/items etc right where we left them. In the conversion, our world was transformed into an 'Infinite World', meaning we no longer have any boundaries anymore. Before once we reached the end of our world, we hit a blank wall and a body of water. Now new lands and biomes have spawned. We have nicknamed these areas the 'Outer Rim'. This means we can now expand to entirely new lands, without having to make a new world. If we were to make a new world, we could start completely fresh. No item caps. Near unlimited use of item frames, paintings, armor stands etc Increased player count. For the first time ever, we were able to have more than 8 people playing at the same time in single world on Minecraft (the XBO Edition has an 8 player limit). It was awesome! We did encounter some lag, though we believe it was because of the amount of people we had flying around various different parts 'Outer Rims' and the game was trying to render in everything at the same time. We will do our best to reach out to any member of our Minecraft crew who couldn't make it to this event and get your feedback! Thank you all for a productive night on Minecraft.

    AJSA Xbox One Weekly Event Schedule [March 23rd to March 24th]
    How Can I Join An Xbox One Event? - For new members/first time event participants, I highly encourage you to add all the hosts as your friend on Xbox Live (Gamertags are listed for every host below). You can also join the AJSA Xbox Club and add hosts/members there. All event and game night parties are launched from the Club. Additionally, please review our Code of Conduct.
    Communication during events are done primarily in the Xbox Live Party system. In case of emergency, we will use the AJSA Discord Channel. We accept and make adjustments for people who are shy in large groups and/or for people who have no mics.
    If by chance you do not have the host as a friend, please message the host for an invite to the game/party during the event and then exchange friend requests upon entry to the party. Most, if not all, event parties will be visible to all Xbox Club members. Look under "Looking for Group" at the start/during an event to view the event party and join up.
    If you would like to give advance notice to the host that you would like to play, you are free to do so. Otherwise keep note of the event start times and join the host's Xbox Live party to begin. If you have any questions, please contact me directly at "RuneX" on the forums or on Xbox Live. To learn more about the AJSA Xbox One Division, check out our Community Information thread.
    Sea of Thieves - Xbox One Event - Fri. Mar. 23rd, 2018 @7:30pm EST (12:30am GMT)

    Inaugural Event
    The AJSA is sailing on the high seas this Friday night for our inaugural Sea of Thieves event on Xbox One!

As this game is cross-play enabled, PC and Xbox players can play with each other! Any PC members interested in playing? Please message me your Gamertag in advance or message me during the event for an invite!
    Currently pirate crew sizes are limited to four players, so we will have multiple groups and parties up simultaneously during the event. We will do our best to all get in the same server, establish a fleet, and conquer the high seas together!
    The main point of contact for the event will be Rune [Gamertag: AScapeRunePlaya], so if you join late and need a crew to play with, please contact him and he'll get you connected with an AJSA party with an open spot.
