  • By RuneX, in Frontpage,


    Greetings all, Happy Monday! I hope you had a fantastic weekend. Here on Xbox we're marching ahead with a new slate of Game Nights for you to enjoy this month. Our 'February Outline' will be shared with the community in this article where you'll be able to see all the upcoming titles we're featuring and playing in the coming weeks. Our main highlight for February will undoubtedly be our 'Kountdown to Kombat' Fight Night series, an ambitious project and celebration of the fighting game genre leading up to the release of Mortal Kombat 11 in April. We're very excited to show you what we have planned for the Fight Nights and other activities. Community favorite titles such as Black Ops 4 and Halo: Master Chief Collection are making a return with light-hearted games like Human Fall Flat and Super Bomberman R being mixed in. We're also featuring Minecraft towards the end of February as well with a host of new additions to the Realm that we're eagerly awaiting to show to our members.
    Kountdown to Kombat - Fight Nights Announcement
    In anticipation of the release of Mortal Kombat 11 in April we're organizing a three month long community project celebrating the fighting game genre by coming together to play and enjoy a variety of fighting games across titles like Street Fighter, Mortal Kombat, Killer Instinct, and more.
    Led by Xbox Officer Sickshock6, taking on the monikor of 'Shao Sick' for this series, these Fight Nights will be held on a bi-weekly basis on Sunday evenings for February and March with the exception of April where we will have two Fight Nights back to back to accommodate for holidays.
    Our inaugural Fight Night will be this Sunday night with Mortal Kombat X kicking off the Kountdown to Kombat. Available for free with the Xbox Game Pass, Shao Sick welcomes all challengers to try and claim his 'Angry Throne'. To view our official announcement and complete Fight Nights schedule, please check out this thread in the Xbox sub-forum. Fight on!
    Staff Promotions
    I'd like to recognize these two hard working and dedicated individuals from the Xbox community on their well earned promotions to and within the Xbox One Staff.
    Sickshock - Sick joined the Xbox team as a Sergeant in January 2018 to spearhead our 'Game Nights Initiative' and quickly became one of our most efficient game organizers within the AJSA community. His quirky sense of humor, dedication to the community, friendliness, and unique ability to adapt to any gaming environment he is put in, this promotion to Officer is well deserved. Sick thank you for all your hard work and doing all you can to make the Xbox community the best it can be.
    Delta - We're proud to announce that Delta is being promoted to the position of Sergeant in the Xbox team. Delta has quickly proven himself to be an active, reliable and cordial individual within the community. Always willing to help and lend a hand with Game Night, Delta we feel is a fanstic fit to the team. We're looking forward to working with Delta in 2019 and having him help in the running the day to day operations of the community.
    Overwatch
    Game Nights for Overwatch took a break in January after a long and busy 2018 with our host, Officer WookieJedi, taking some time off to focus on IRL obligations. To celebrate the 'Year of the Pig' seasonal event, we're bringing back Overwatch on Saturday February 16th for a special Game Night filled with fun and surprises cooked up by WookieJedi. We hope you can join us!
    Minecraft Winter Expedition
    For our Minecraft Game Night in February we will be embarking on a 'Winter Expedition' with the goal of exploring a large, newly discovered snow biome within the Realm. This will be the farthest we've ever travelled in the Realm. Shocks and surprises will be in store for those who dare to take part on this Expedition.

    Happy Monday! I hope everyone had an excellent weekend. I can't believe we're already approaching the end of January. Can Christmas just come back already? I think Santa forgot some of my gifts...Well with that aside we formally wrapped up our Game Nights outline for the month of January this past week. This concluded our first slate of events for 2019. I'm very appreciate of our all organizers and participants who made this possible by attending and/or planning these Game Nights to welcome us into the New Year. In this article we'll provide a brief recap of some the games we showcased in January and what Game Nights we're featuring this weekend.
    Due to a staff meeting we will not be having a Game Night this Saturday so overall things may be a bit light this weekend. While this weekend will mark our first events for February, our complete outline and agenda for February will be published next Monday. We have some cool projects in the works and we're looking forward to sharing them with you soon. Thank you all once again for your support! Cya at the events.
    January Recap
    In January 2019 we featured these titles as Game Nights:
    Call of Duty: Black Ops 4 Fortnite: Battle Royale Halo: Master Chief Collection Paladins Rainbow Six: Siege Red Dead Redemption II We also reorganized our Xbox sub-forum and created this Guidebook for community members to learn more about our group.
    Elite: Dangerous
    If you're an Elite: Dangeorus player on Xbox One or looking to start playing, we have Squadron [created by members of the community] for you to join if you're interested. This is a great time to get involved in Elite with lots of content updates live right and expansions being planned for the future. Check out this forum post created by one of the Squadron leaders, Foxhart, in the Xbox sub-forum to get set up.

    By RuneX, in Frontpage,


    Hi all. I hope everyone had a good weekend. Thank you to those who came out to play during our Game Nights. We did have a slight hiccup last night with Fortnite as the servers crashed about halfway through the session and we had to switch over to another game for the evening. Every now and then things like this happen, I'm happy that we were able to still salvage the evening and still play together on another game. We hope you can all join us this weekend for our last full slate of Game Nights for January and you can view all details on these upcoming activities below in this article. Please not that our Game Nights outline for February will be published on Monday February 4th.
    Weekly Game Night Schedule - January 25th to January 27th

    How can I attend a Game Night? - For new members/first time Game Night participants, I highly encourage you to add all the hosts as your friend on Xbox Live (Gamertags are listed for every host below). We also encourage you to join the community Xbox Club (all hosts can be found in the Club roster as well). We use the Club for a variety of purposes to unite members of the community and play together. As an extra reminder for new members, please make sure to review our Code of Conduct.
    To learn more about the AJSA on Xbox One, visit out our Community Information thread.
    For Game Nights and other community activities we use the 'Xbox Live Party' that are created from the Club for communication, gatherings, and other purposes. In the case of an emergency where Xbox Live is down and we need to group up, we will use the AJSA Discord channel as a backup. In our parties we fully accept and make adjustments for people who are shy in groups and/or for people who have no mics.
    If by chance you do not have a Game Night host on your friend list, please message the host for an invite to the game/party during the Game Night and then exchange friend requests upon entry to the party. All Game Night parties will be visible to Xbox Club members under the "Looking for Group" section. You can join the party via the Club or through the profile of the host.
    If you would like to give advance notice to the host that you would like to participate in a particular Game Night, you are free to do so. If you have any questions, please reach out to any members of the AJSA Xbox One staff and we will be happy to assist you.
    All Game Nights are casual gatherings aimed at bringing people together to have a good time and enjoy their games in a group setting.
