    Hello, everyone! I hope you all had an excellent October! The AJSA Xbox One Division is pleased to share with everyone in the AJSA Gaming Community our slate of Xbox One Events lined up for this week. Upcoming festivities and all appropriate event information (start times, hosts etc) will be displayed below in this article. 
    For those who celebrate Halloween, be safe and have fun tonight while Trick or Treating!
    News & Highlights
    Halo 5 Anniversary Event Recap - This past Saturday Night (October 29th) we held our One Year Event Anniversary festivity for Halo 5. We came together to celebrate the founding of the AJSA Spartan Company and to formally mark One Year since our inaugural event. We had the pleasure of playing a variety of custom game modes and maps. Thank you to all who participated!
    Destiny Anniversary Event Recap - We also celebrated our One Year Event Anniversary for Destiny this month as well! Spanned across two days, we played Heroic/Nightfall Strikes, custom and online Crucible, and completed three Raids. Thank you to our host, Slade Bogaty, and all the Squad Leaders who helped assist the host in leading the Raid groups during the events.
    Battlefield 1 Events - On October 22nd, 2016 the AJSA Xbox One Division held its inaugural Battlefield 1 event. Due to the overwhelming amount of positive feedback and response from our Battlefield members during the event, the Xbox One team will continue to schedule Battlefield 1 events well into November and beyond.
    The Battlefield series, starting with Battlefield 4, is our flagship event on the Xbox One. Battlefield 4 remains our longest running weekly series on Xbox One. Thanks to our very loyal and dedicated AJSA player base on Battlefield 4, we were able to secure a stable and secure foundation for Battlefield 1. I'm pleased to see so many returning faces at the new events.
    Rocket League - The October 23rd Rocket League event that was postponed has been formally rescheduled to this Sunday November 6th with Bamboe taking up lead to host the event. Since our last Rocket League gathering, a new content update (featuring AquaDome) has been released. Be sure to have the latest update downloaded before you play this Sunday night.

    On Saturday October 15th, 2016 the AJSA Xbox One Division held its inaugural Gears of War 4 event. The event was captured on video and footage was edited into a compilation game clips/highlights from that night. It was a pleasure to see us gather and play the game after the long wait. In May, a discussion video was posted about the Gears of War 4 beta.

    We will host the final EF Burnout Paradise event this Saturday, the 29th of October at 4pm EDT/ 9pm BST. For this event we will be using Discord.
     

    This final event, we will host a racing tournament (yes really)! This tournament will consist of 9 different custom races. We will manually keep track of the points awarded and the one with the most points will be declared winner of the tournament and be given one of the prestigious contest pips.
     
     
      
     
     
    The Second place will be given an Racing MVP Award.
     

     
    Be aware that these awards will actually be awarded once awards have been reintroduced to our forum infrastructure.
     
     
    Good luck to all, Angry Racers!
     
     
    Dedicated Players

    We encourage commitment and attendance within the EF, thus we offer attendance pips for those players who register themselves as dedicated players (You can still attend all events without making this commitment). As such dedicated players promise to attend at least 50% of the events, for which they will receive said attendance pip at the end of the month.
     
                             
     
    If you want to suggest ideas, discuss the game or make other recommendations, then feel free to do so in the EF forum here: http://angryjoeshow.com/ajsa/forums/topic/31185-future-ef-games-post-your-suggestions-here/   If you have any questions, please don’t hesitate to contact any of the EF leaders, namely Acepilot666, ArisingFlame, Brandykins1982, Conan or Digs.
