    This weeks EF event will be Red Orchestra 2/ Rising Storm, on Saturday, the 16th at 9pm BST/ 4pm EDT. Like always, we'll be using the AJSA Discord Server to communicate for the duration of the event.
    As you may know, both games utilize the same multiplayer, allowing the players to play either game, even if they don't own the singleplayer copy (with some class selection restriction). The version to be played will be decided by popular demand during the event. We will choose from public servers, aiming either for US East Coast servers or Western European servers to keep the average ping as low as possible.
