    By Conan, in Frontpage,


    Hey guys, Dark Templar here subbing in for AverageSpacePope while he is dealing with IRL issues.  We’re looking to pump some much needed support into viable games for the AJSA and with the help of the EF, we’re hoping to do just that, starting with, drum roll please... Warframe!
     
    Now if you’re unfamiliar with Warframe you may be thinking, what the hell is Warframe? Short answer; Warframe is a free-to-play cooperative third-person shooter parkour heavy space ninja simulator. If that has you interested then read on. If you want any further information on the game, click this link here: https://www.warframe.com/game
     
    First off, we’ll be changing the schedule, the events will now be run on tuesdays, and to make sure to accommodate everyone, the event will be held during 2 times, the EU players will be held first at 11am PDT/ 2pm EDT/ 7pm GMT, and the NA players will be held at 5pm PDT/ 8pm EDT/ 12pm GMT(please note, players may join either or both events)
     
    We will be happy to work with players who need help starting the game, farming parts/mods/ resources/ ETC. and hope to eventually get a Trial(kinda like a raid) up and running for those interested
     
    “What if I’ve played the game before and don’t need any help?” You’re welcome to turn up any time this month. We’ll be setting up a channel where anyone needing help or just wanting to party up can stay and chat. This is where we’ll be hosting all Warframe events from too.
     
    We are looking to give Warframe a real shot here in the AJSA. Hopefully, you guys and gals will give the game a shot and who knows, maybe it’ll become your new favourite game.
     
    Good luck Tenno, For the Lotus.
     
    If you have any questions about Warframe, please contact AverageSpacePope or Dark Templar. If you have any questions about the EF or any inquiries about current or upcoming EF supported games, please contact Conan, our EF representative.
