    By RuneX, in Frontpage,


    Hello and welcome. A greater part of this week on Xbox will be spent traveling back in time! Not only are we re-visiting the original Halo 3 via backward compatibility but we are also returning to Metal Gear Solid V and Destiny 2, two games that have been long absent from our event schedule. Metal Gear will be free with 'Games with Gold' starting this Wednesday so we're holding a special event this Friday night (conveniently as part of our 'Free to Play' weekly series). Great opportunity to experience this game as a group. Then with Destiny 2 we are checking out first hand the latest 'Warmind' expansion and see if any of the changes Bungie put out for the game over the past few months has made things better or worse. Have a great week! Cya at the events.

    Xbox One Events (XB1): Battlefield 3 | May 10th, 2018 - Highlights and game clips taken from our Battlefield 3 event on Xbox One held on May 10th, 2018 via backward compatibility. Enjoy: 
    Featured Game Nights [May 16th & 20th]
    Xbox Game Nights were introduced back in January of this year. These are local AJSA Xbox Club activities that are normally held during days where we have no events scheduled. These organized play sessions are structured to be more loose and laidback, creating more opportunities for us as a community to reach out to more games and play even more with each other.
    For additional information on Game Nights/Weekly Events, check out our Xbox Community Information thread.
    Wednesday May 16th - Elite: Dangerous- 7:30pm EST - Host: MasterfulJoe101 Sunday May 20th - Mortal Kombat X - 7:00pm EST - Host: Sickshock6 AJSA Xbox One Weekly Event Schedule [May 15th to May 19th]
    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.

    MGSV: The Phantom Pain - Xbox One Event - May 18th, 2018 @7:30pm EST (12:30am GMT)

    - Free to Play Friday -
    Every Friday night in the month of May we are featuring a different free to play title in an event form. In this 'Free to Play Friday' event series we are featuring games that are either already free to play, games that are free with Games with Gold, or games that are holding free to play weekend sessions.
    This Friday night we are showcasing Metal Gear Solid V: The Phantom Pain. This game comes to Games with Gold on Wednesday May 16th and it will be available to download free of charge with an active Xbox Live Gold subscription. If you're looking to participate, please allow time before the event starts to fully install the game so you can play right away.
    We will be playing in the 'Metal Gear Online', the online multiplayer component for MGSV, for this event. We'll be playing modes such as 'Comm Control', 'Cloak and Dagger', and 'Bounty Hunter'. Will you play guns blazing or opt for the stealthy approach?
    Players of all skill levels are welcome to play. For a lot of folks this will likely be their first time playing this game and/or their first time playing online, so don't worry if you're not an expert steath player! We will accomodate everyone. If you have any questions about this upcoming event, please reach out to our host. Thank you!

    This Sunday, we here at the EF will dive into the MechWarrior universe with Battletech, a turn-based strategy game recently released. For the event itself, we will pair the attendees, to face off against one another in 1v1 matches. Given that the attendees are facing off in 1v1 matches, it may be required for some of them to host sessions themselves.
    The event will take place this Sunday, the 13th, at 9pm BST/ 4pm EDT on our Discord Server.
