:ajsa:AJSA Xbox One Division Information :ajsa:

General Overview

What is the Xbox Community?

The Xbox Community is a Division of the Angry Army that plays and operates primarily on the Xbox One console. We are an organized, diverse group of gamers that love and enjoy playing video games across a variety of titles and genres.

The AJSA Xbox One Division has a presence in a wide range of titles. We have organized, casual weekly events and game nights with the objective of coming together and enjoying games, all while flying the AJSA banner high and mighty in the battles we take part in. Staff members and designated coordinators also help run several different Clans and Guilds that house AJSA members within various game titles.

We believe the AJSA is more than just a regular ‘Clan’. We're are a community, a family of gamers. For us on Xbox One we are not super competitive, though we do like to play the objective and place importance in squad play. Above all else we like to play to enjoy the game and each other’s company. We play to have fun, not for stats!

If you want to positively represent the community and fly our colors, please make sure above all else to read and review the AJSA Code of Conduct and our New Members Guide before jumping all in. 

How You Can Get Involved

  • Gamertag List: To get started, you can add your name (and games you like to play) to our Official Xbox One Gamertag List. This allows you to add other members right away and for people to add you as well. While this is optional, it is encouraged!
     
  • Weekly Event Schedule: Check out our Weekly Events schedule. This is a guaranteed way for you to game quickly with and meet members of the community. These events are avenues for us to game, talk, laugh and have a good time in an organized group. Each event is led and organized by the 'Host'. The host is the person responsible for that event and is in charge of the group activities. They will make sure you are accounted for and get you in the group to play.
     
  • Event Calendar: All AJSA events, including Xbox Weekly Events, are posted in the AJSA Event Calendar. We update the Xbox events for the week every Monday (EST).
     
  • Game Nights: Game Nights are normally held on days where there are no events scheduled and during designatedl holiday breaks. Official Game Night notices are published on the AJSA Xbox Club ‘Activity Feed’ and in our weekly Xbox articles on the forums.
     
  • Join the AJSA Xbox Club: On the Xbox One we have the 'AJSA Club' that serves as a main hub of activity and interaction when playing on the console. The Club has a built in chat and party system, Looking for Group section, member roster, and social area (share your game clips and screenshots). All Weekly Event information are posted in the Club and event parties are available from the Club.

Weekly Events

What/Who Are Hosts?

Hosts are individuals, mainly those part of the AJSA Xbox staff, that are responsible for organizing players, creating 'Club Parties' for the event, setting up and leading game lobbies, and directing/supervising the group activities for their event. They are the essential point of contact for the event they are leading.

In many cases the games that we schedule events for also have a dedicated Game Officer or Sergeant that leads the day to day operations of that particular game. As a result many hosts are also Officers and Sergeants. For games we hold events for that don't have a Officer/Sergeant for, they are normally hosted by members of the AJSA Xbox staff or by other members of the community.

What are Events?

Events are organized gaming activities that are consistently held on a weekly basis. Events are pre-planned, normally a month in advance, by the AJSA Xbox staff. Each event is formally outlined and structured to handle large groups of people and to keep people engaged for a long period of time. 

What games do you normally as events?

We have a core group of community titles that we support and organize for each month. We maintain and offer a variety of games outside of these core games that will be featured as events. This means while you'll mainly see consistent titles each week where we meet up and play, you can expect us to hold events for new games, free titles from 'Games with Gold', backward compatible Xbox 360 games, or games we simply would like to try out in a group setting.

Additionally, from time to time, we hold special series or themed events revolving around a particular idea, holiday season or anniversary, where we hold an individual or series of unique events that fit with the vibe we're going for. Our Weekly Event schedule is updated every Monday. For some games we offer monthly schedules, so please check out our 'Event Center' sub-forum.

Where are all the places I can view the event schedule?

There are various different ways for you to access our event schedule. Below are places where our event schedule is posted every Monday:

Game Nights

What are Game Nights?

Game Nights are Xbox Club activities that are normally held during days where we have no events scheduled. These 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 more with each other.

Game Nights create a designated environment where members can play with each other when we are on break and/or have no events scheduled for a particular day. Any and all notices for Game Nights are published via the AJSA Xbox Club in the ‘Activity Feed’. Members are encouraged to sign up for those posts.

Who is in charge of Game Nights and what games do you play?

Game Nights are overseen by a specific member of the AJSA Xbox One staff, with other staff members providing support. Our Game Nights do not have a concrete selection of games, instead Game Nights can explore more titles to experiment with and get groups up together to play. Also, Xbox Preview/Early Access games and titles in Beta can be featured as Game Nights.

Where can I view Game Night notices?

As aforementioned, any and all Game Night notices are posted exclusively to the AJSA Xbox One Club in the 'Activity Feed'. These posts are specifically marked as 'Game Nights' to separate it from any 'Weekly Event' alerts.

AJSA Club

What is the AJSA Club?

The AJSA Club on Xbox One is the official ‘Club’ for members of the AJSA Gaming Community on Xbox to congregate, play games, meet others, and participate in events/game nights. The Club is a great way to help bring gaming communities like ours closer together.

How Can I Join?

To join, please refer to our ‘AJSA Xbox One Club Information & How To Join’ thread. Upon entry, you will receive a welcoming message from one of our Club admins.

What are Club Parties?

A 'Club Party' is simply an Xbox Live Party started from the AJSA Xbox Club, however there are some differences that make it unique. For example when you are a member of the AJSA Xbox Club you can go to the 'Multiplayer' tab and click on 'Create Club Party'. When you do this it will create and place you within an Xbox Live Party, but the party itself will be marked as a 'Club Party' and any member of the Club will be able to see your party under the 'Multiplayer' tab. 

Also when you invite people to games or to the party, it will say "X invited to play Overwatch in the Official AJSA Xbox One Community' and/or 'X invited you to an Official AJSA Xbox One Community Party'. If your party is 'Open', any Club members may join as you don't need to be 'Friends' with the person who created the party to join. This makes it easier for new members to get involved in our activities.

All these factors mean that for both Weekly Events and Game Nights we use the Club Party system to create groups and invite people. While most Club Parties are used for events and/or game nights, we encourage members to freely create and use Club Parties to group up or find other members to play with.

Can I Share My Game Clips and Screenshots to the Club?

Yes! You are encouraged to share your gaming content (screenshots, game clips, and news) to the Activity Feed. This is an easy and effective way to communicate and meet other members by engaging over a funny game clip, news article or other note of interest.

Games We Like To Play

Here is a small sample of some of the multiplayer games you'll see solid groups of AJSA members on Xbox One playing:

  • Overwatch
  • Monster Hunter World
  • Fortnite: Battle Royale
  • COD: World War II
  • Gears of War 4
  • PUBG
  • Halo: Master Chief Collection
  • Battlefield 1
  • Battlefield 4
  • Sea of Thieves
  • Minecraft
  • The Division

IMPORTANT NOTICE

You do NOT have to wait until we have Game Nights or Weekly Events to group up and play with fellow members.

The Club is for the community, so use it! Please feel free to use Club Parties and create Looking for Group posts in the Club to find others to play with.
