    Welcome AJSA to the new year, 2015!

    As the AJSA enters into it's 3rd calendar year (2nd year of operation) we are going to be introducing changes in order to better serve you guys and as they say "Bring on the Games!"

    By Tons0fun, in Articles,


    NEW SERVERS!
    First and foremost is a change in server hosts for a majority of our games to Vilayer! They have a product called a clan package that works out fantastically for us. It allows us to have a "pool" of game slots that we can dynamically assign to new game servers and have them up in running in as little as 15 minutes in some cases. So be on the lookout for new game events on community games as well as new supported games within the AJSA!
    Our starting lineup:
    - 7 Days to Die
    - CS:GO
    - Insurgency
    - Team Fortress 2
    Phase 2 -Up Now!
    - Chivalry: Medieval Warfare
    - Space Engineers
    - ARMA 3
    Coming soon:
    - Garry's Mod
    As some of you may know there is a new process for getting games supported in the AJSA, if you want to see what it is or possibly step forward to run a game read Commander Seph's article!
    Changes to Club Membership
    We want to re-evalute and value-add to the membership. There is a thread currently in the membership forum for those who have a membership to contribute to the conversation and state what they would like to see added or changed. If you you would like to be a part of the conversation go here!
    Lastly, we are always looking for ways to improve the community and keep moving forward. Stay tuned for more announcements as the year goes on!

    Kick off 2015 with a Planetside 2 Special Operation! Will you help in the siege of the warpgates?

    By Conan, in Articles,


    article picture by Norman
    When: Saturday, January 3rd, 2015, Operation will commence at 2PM EST (7PM GMT)
    Where: EMERALD Server, AJSA Teamspeak: ts3.ajsagaming.com
    How: Platoon and Squad Leaders will create specific Squad Channels in the Teamspeak to match the name of the in-game Squad in PS2. Join the Teamspeak Channel that matches the squad you join in game, so you can hear your Squad Leader!
    New members read the "READ HERE" forum post to see a list of Sergeants/Officers to send in-game messages to so you can get invited to the outfit or look for them in teamspeak.
    What: To commemorate the new year and to go easy on both the players and the staff after the hazy events that transpired during new years eve, we'll host a Special, somewhat low effort Op on the first Saturday of the new year, as opposed to a regular Op Night.
    Event Outline:
    The Warpgate Siege:
    To celebrate the new year the Angry Army will lay siege to either the NC or VS warpgate on any continent. Moving in to dominate, we aim to beat our time from the 22nd Op, where we lasted 1 h 30 min. If need be we might lay siege to multiple warpgates that evening, we'll see...
    The Valkyrie Zerg:
    Once we had enough, we'll head out to have one last silliness together, namely a Valkyrie zerg. Depending on how we feel we either troll our opposition or try to annihilate those as well.
    AJSA Event MVP

    Officers and Sergeants will be on the lookout for the player who best exemplifies the AJSA during this event. This means players who not only demonstrate skill on the battlefield, but are great team members as well. A player who meets those high standards for this event will receive the AJSA Champion Award to adorn their forum profile!

    Time to get one last Planetside 2 Operation before the Holiday madness begins, join us on the Emerald Server!

    By Conan, in Articles,


    When: Saturday, December 20th, 2014, Operation will commence at 2PM EST (7PM GMT)
    Where: EMERALD Server, AJSA Teamspeak: ts3.ajsagaming.com
    How: Platoon and Squad Leaders will create specific Squad Channels in the Teamspeak to match the name of the in-game Squad in PS2. Join the Teamspeak Channel that matches the squad you join in game, so you can hear your Squad Leader!
    New members read the "READ HERE" forum post to see a list of Sergeants/Officers to send in-game messages to so you can get invited to the outfit or look for them in teamspeak.
    What: Our objective during the Ops is to play together as a large team and cooperatively fight as a unit semi-seriously, while still having a fun time. squad members are expected to listen to their squad leaders to ensure the AJSA is victorious in battle.
    Event Outline:
    Kick-off Phase: Hot-Dropping
    To announce that the Angry Army is here we'll do something together as a large blob. This time the PS2 staff will place beacons in the middle of an ongoing battle, which we are going to mix up a bit. As soon as we all die horrible or kill everything around us, we'll begin the normal combat operations.
    Combat Phase:
    We will then break off to our platoon and squad assignments. If an Alert has started, we will play the objectives of the alert, otherwise, we will go to hot spots where we are needed (splitting continents if called for).
    Racing Phase: AJSA Racing league #25: Valkyrie Team Race
    For the 25th official race we'll have a Valkyrie Team Race. Teams of 4 are mandatory, so start assembling your team today. Friendly fire will be enabled from the start, so start certing your Valkyries!

    The First Place Winner of the Race will receive the lovely AJSA Racing League Champion Award on the forums. View the award and our hall of champions here:

    Teaser Paragraph:

    The newest expansion for Star Wars: The Old Republic is out now! Shadow of Revan continues the main story, increases the level cap to 60, and adds two new planets among other game-wide changes! You owe it to your inner Star Wars Fan to join the AJSA on Jedi Covenant Server! Continue reading for news on a special Bounty issued and a chance to win a new badge!

    By DoctorEvil, in Articles,


    Shadow of Revan Expansion
    The Expansion finally brings to a conclusion all the hints of what happened to Revan after the events of Knights of the Old Republic 1 & 2 and the mentions in existing SWTOR Questlines and Flashpoints.
    Regardless if you get the expansion, all characters in SWTOR have a completely redone Skills loadout (the 3 skill trees you used to put points in after picking an advanced class); the new Combat Proficiencies sets your Advanced Class down a more clear-cut path, unlocking Role necessary abilities much much earlier in character leveling, while giving respec-able Utility points that further customize your role.
    In addition as of December 9th, all Abilities learned from the Skill Trainer are now FREE! These abilities definitely got very expensive as you leveled up, so now your character can either grind for cash less or you can have a lot more walking around money to spend on things ( OR use to donate to the Guild Star Destroyer Flagship Fund [Hint])!

    The AJSA in SWTOR
    We've had a pretty low-key presence in SWTOR for awhile, but our Imperial Guild on the Jedi Covenant Server (and unofficial Republic Guild) has been expanding at a great rate! Check out our SWTOR sub-forums for more details on SWTOR, useful tips for playing, and how to join the guild.
    Even if you re-sub to just finish the story missions, joining the AJSA Guild has the benefit of a 10% EXP bonus on top of your existing bonus! Also with our teamspeak channel and in-game guild chat, you can get help from fellow members or people to group up with!
    STRONGHOLDS & FLAGSHIPS!
    The AJSA Guild has it's headquarters in our Stronghold in Dromund Kaas, and is currently raising funds to purchase a Guild Star Destroyer!

    Currently we're around 25 Million Credits towards the 50 Million cost, but with more players maxing out their characters, people earning money from the new dailies and more people around to do Operations, it's a worthwhile goal to strive towards!
    SPECIAL BOUNTY ON NEW RECRUITS TO THE AJSA SWTOR GUILD
    We're on the hunt for new members for our guild and Guild Leadership has declared a Bounty on new members (both existing AJSA Members and non-AJSA SWTOR Players) joining our guild! What does that mean? If you PM me, DoctorEvil, on the forums with the SWTOR Names of 5 new UNIQUE (not alts) Members you recruited, then after verification, you will be awarded the Rare "The Recruiter" badge for your forum profile!

    So what are you waiting on Bounty Hunters? Go out and headhunt for the AJSA in Star Wars!

    Event Outline:
    Kick-off Phase: Assault of the Battle-Flashes
    To announce that the Angry Army is here we'll interfere in any promising conflict on Aurasxis by crashing the party with Battle-Flashes. For this the PS2 staff will provide certed Battle-Flashes with either the Renegade or the Fury. They'll have the Wraith-Cloak equipped, so better start practising in the VR Training Room!

    Combat Phase:
    We will then break off to our platoon and squad assignments. If an Alert has started, we will play the objectives of the alert, otherwise, we will go to hot spots where we are needed (splitting continents if called for).

    Racing Phase: AJSA Racing league #24: Galaxy Team Race
    For the 24th official race we'll have a Galaxy Team Race. Teams of 5 are recommended but you can also choose to take less members. Friendly fire will be enabled from the start, so start certing your Galaxies!
