    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.

    Minecraft - Xbox One Event - Thurs. Mar. 14th, 2018 @7:00pm EST (12:00am GMT)

    This Thursday for our Minecraft Nights are we doing something a little different. For this event we will be using the 'new version' of Minecraft for Xbox One where we will test out all the new features and have a discussion on where to take our Minecraft Nights.
    Here on Xbox One we are in a unique situation where we have essentially two different 'Minecraft' games. There is the standard 'Minecraft: Xbox One Edition' (which we've been using for a long time now) and there is also just 'Minecraft' which was released last year as part of the 'Better Together' update.
    I'd like for us as a community to decide together where we should go with concerns to the Minecraft Nights (stay with the current version or move over). This event will be used to allow us to both play with the new features and discuss the road ahead. If you want additional information about this particular event, this was covered last week in our Xbox article under 'News & Updates'. I look forward to hearing from you.
    Participants are highly encouraged to join the Xbox Live Party of the host "RuneX" during the event. If you have any questions about this event, please do not hesitate to message Rune.
