    News & Highlights
    AJSA 4th Year Anniversary Recap [Xbox] - Another Anniversary Week is in the books. This celebration went above and beyond my expectations. I was truly humbled on the turnout for the events and how engaged people were. It is my pleasure to report that the Anniversary spirit was healthy and strong during the whole week on Xbox.
    Last night we concluded our program for the AJSA 4th Year Anniversary celebration, wrapping up a busy and productive series of events. Every night last week we held an event, every night we got the group together, and every night we went out to kick ass and have fun.
    I want to recognize everyone who rallied together to support and participate during our events on Xbox during the Anniversary week. Everyone who came out last week and participated were all part of something awesome. This was made possible by our hard working organizers and generous members who donated their time, skills, and efforts that made this celebration so successful. Thank you.
    We are working on a montage video that will include all the funny, crazy, and explosive moments from the Anniversary on Xbox. We're excited to share with you our experience. Stay tuned for updates.
    Xbox One Division Anniversary Raffle - As a friendly reminder, the Xbox Raffle winners will be announced on December 4th.
    November Break Notice [Nov. 20th to Nov. 26th] - I'd like to make sure everyone is aware that from Monday November 20th to Sunday November 26th the AJSA Xbox One Division will be on our November break. This means that there will be no scheduled AJSA events on the Xbox One during this time. This will a time to relax, spend with your family or loved ones and tackle your video game backlog.
    As always, even if we are not doing any formal events it does not mean there won't be any gaming going on. Keep an eye out for invites and/or group notices from the AJSA Xbox Club that will allow you to squad up with fellow members during the break. You can also take the initiative to set up your own group notices in the Club to find others to play with.
    We will resume our normal schedule after the break is done. In the coming weeks we will also share with you our End of Year gaming plans and holiday themed events to close out 2017. Enjoy your break, everyone.

    Remember the good old days, when paid for games had no microtransactions? When you actually had to work for achievements and couldn't just buy them? When EA was shitty, but not as shitty as they are now?
    Well, we do and with the current ever so slightly contoversial course of the new Star Wars: Battlefront 2, we've decided to revisit the original, which just as it happens actually was the very first game featured by the EF, back in Summer of 2015 (when the first reworked Battlefront was released).
    As such, we'll be hosting a session of the original, 2005 version of Star Wars: Battlefront 2 this Saturday, the 18th of November, at 9pm GMT/4pm EST on our Discord Server.
