    Changes are coming to how official and unofficial games are selected within the AJSA! Should your favorite game become the next AJSA Official Game?

    By Seph, in Articles,

    The new subform for this announcement is located at -> http://angryjoeshow.com/ajsa/forum/114-officialunofficial-game-support/
    Hello, I am Commander Seph and the new Unoffical Games Commander. I am responsible for assisting games that have the potential to be official games. We are moving away from our current poll system used to select official games and on to a new system. All new potential official games will be classified as unofficial first unless approved by council. This will allow for us to assess the game's leaders and if it has enough of a following. Listed below are the details for the different classifications of games within our community.
    Official Games
    Below are a few perks of being an official game.
    Full access to "The Hype Machine" (Information about "The Hype Machine" located at the bottom)
    Dedicated Teamspeak channel in official games section with sub channels
    Dedicated sub forum area with addtional sub forums as needed
    Dedicated server if game supports servers and the need is present (admin on server if they have the knowledge)
    Assigned a point of contact to assist you with event announcements and advise to help you succeed
    Leader will receive a forum award to show that they lead a game
    Leader will be allowed officers and sergeants based on their need in game

    Official game leader expectations are as follows
    Active leadership and community in game
    Run events regularly
    Report to a point of contact on activity within a game and on events held
    Administer server if they have the know how

    Requirements in order to become official (Must meet at least 2 out of 5)
    Guild/Clan System
    Community meta-game addtitions (Such as tournaments)
    Joe/Streamer/High Command support
    Server support that benefits the AJSA
    Community Popularity

    Unofficial Games
    Below are the perks of being an unofficial game.
    Sub channel in teamspeak located under unofficial games
    Use of "The Hype Machine" but must be approved by Commander or above.
    Possible sub-forum (Official games that are sunset or Popular unofficial games)
    Use of the Unofficial Games Commander as a Point of Contact
    Possible temporary server for large events if supported (Commander or higher will admin the temp server)

    What kind of games are unofficial games?
    Games that we intent to support but are still in Alpha/Beta testing
    Contenders to become official games
    Games that have fallen out of favor and are no longer official games (They do have the ability to come back in to official status though)

    How to make an unofficial game official.
    Have an established and vetted leader canidate
    Active population of regular members
    Run events regularly
    Meet 2 out of the 5 requirements listed above in the official games section

    How to make a game an unofficial game. (You will need to submit a post with the following)
    Explain how your game meets 2 out of the 5 requirements
    A list of individuals who will play with you (at least 5)
    Understand that you are volunteering to lead the group you are making a post for
    Ideas for an event to be held if and when the game becomes unofficial
    Create a follow up post after the event detailing how it went complete with screenshots and/or videos
    An example and more information can be found here ->http://angryjoeshow.com/ajsa/topic/23130-read-first-example-for-game-request/

    Community Games
    There is another type of classification that I would like to note. We will be adding a new section within our teamspeak for games that do not fall in to the above categories but are still played regularly by our members. They will receive a channel under a new category: Community Games so that members can meet up and play together.
    Unsupported Games
    All other games will be labeled as unsupported games. They will not have any of the perks listed above.
    "The Hype Machine"
    Below is brief overview of something we like to call "The Hype Machine" which will help you raise awareness of your game and it's events. Official games get to utilize all options available. Unofficial games only get limited and sometimes temporary access to some of the details listed.
    Advertising post on in the Dev/Publisher Forum of your game
    Events posted in dedicated sub forum
    AJSA Calendar entry
    Semi permanent TS channel for event advertisement
    Front page article
    Steam group calendar entry
    Chat advertise events during AJS streams on twitch
    Twitter annoncements of events (auto announces calendar entries)
    Council to stream special events (uncommon but possible if the event is interesting enough)
    Mention in the Monthly Community Update Video (very special event and well planned)

    Teaser Paragraph:

    The latest event in the Cross-Platform for Destiny has arrived.

    By Craigr910, in Articles,

    Greetings brothers and sisters of the AJSA. As you know, we had our first event for the Cross-Platform Competition in Destiny. Which console could show proof of hitting level 20 first? Who would score first blood in our console rivalry?

    Congratulations to SIR BIGGLES 520 for being our first official level 20 member!

    The Xbox One has gained the lead, but it could still be tied up for September in our next event!

    The Crucible Challenge

    Our next event will be PvP oriented within the Crucible! Each team will consist of six players lead by Doshka17 on Xbox One and WithAStick on the PS4. For three hours, those chosen to lead the charge will battle it out. At the end, the percentage of wins/losses will be calculated for both teams. The team with the highest percentage will be declared the winner, and score the next point in the competition!

    Join The Fight

    As of this moment, we are accepting volunteers to be apart of each of these teams. To do so, you must send a message to the following Officers:
    Doshka17 for Xbox One
    WithAStick for PS4

    All names will be put into a pool, and be chosen by lottery. We will be accepting names until the end of FRIDAY THE 26TH. Saturday we will announce those who have been chosen.

    When Is the Event?

    The event will take place on SUNDAY THE 28TH at 3:00 PM CENTRAL. Please do not volunteer if you can not make it for the entire event!
    Will the Xbox One secure the lead for September? Or will the Playstation 4 tie it up? Join the fight, and secure victory for your console!

    This Saturday, it's Time for the AJSA to learn about harassment! Ride or Die with us on teamspeak!

    By Dark Templar, in Articles,

    When: Saturday 27th of September, operation will commence at 2pm EDT (8pm 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 join the outfit.
    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: Vehicular Harassment
    To get everyone in the mood and announce that the AJSA is here, we will begin with a major harasser offensive attacking anything and everything hostile, before normal combat operations begin.
    After we wreck everything in our path (or more likely after we all flip over and die horribly) we will proceed with normal 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 hotspots where we are needed(splitting continents if called for)

    During the combat phase sergeants/officers will be on the lookout for the individual who best represents the AJSA During the Operation.
    Racing phase: AJSA Racing League #14: Sundies, Seriously!?
    Once the combat phase starts to wind down, we will have another exciting edition of the AJSA Racing league. This time we will be racing Sunderers! Winner(s) will receive:

    In order to race this time you will need the GSD or gate shield diffuser so make sure you have one ready for use!

    Teaser Paragraph:

    Soldiers of the AJSA, listen up! Get ready for INSANITY Saturday in Guns of Icarus!

    This Saturday the AJSA will be jumping into Guns of Icarus to kick some ass! This op night/event will take place this Saturday 09/20/2014 4pm EST (9pm GMT).

    By DoctorEvil, in Articles,

    We are going to be using harpoons, rockets, flamethrowers and every other weapon in our arsenal to destroy our enemies. Be sure to join the AJSA Guns of Icarus TeamSpeak channel too so that you can communicate with everyone who is taking part in the event.

    Also, if you’re not already a member of the AJSA GOI clan then you can join by searching “AJSA” in the clan browser, which is within the game’s main menu. By joining the AJSA GOI clan you will be able to keep up-to-date with things such as event times and AJSA GOI related news. You'll also be able to see whenever any other AJSA clan member is online, which will make partying up for events much easier.

    See you in the skies soldiers!

    Teaser Paragraph:

    TUESDAY September 16th ArcheAge officially launches and the AJSA wants you to join them in this Free to Play "Sandbox" MMORPG. We will be on the Kyros Server, in the East Faction (Harani/Firrans) Continue reading below on how to get an invite to the guild once you get out of the Queue!

    By DoctorEvil, in Articles,

    ArcheAge is a Korean-made MMO from Trion (publishers of other MMOs such as RIFT) and after being in Alpha and Beta during the summer is launching this Tuesday! AJSA Head Start members have already established a Guild in-game and we are ready for you to join us in-game!

    Here are the important details about the guild:
    WHERE: Server is Kyros, all NA servers are located in Texas, EU and Pacific players can play fine on these.
    WHO: The AJSA will be playing as the East Faction, which means you have to select either the Harani (Asian), or Firran (Cat-people) races.
    WHEN: Launch will be in the AM Pacific (US West Coast time, so afternoon US East, evening EU) Expect significant delays from the launch, and a fairly hefty queue for new players, after all it is a MMO Launch!
    WHY: While the leveling process is fairly standard as MMOs go, the End Game is very unique for most Western MMOs, players and Guilds can build Houses, Farms, and even Ships! Pick your crafting area here! Game areas are open-world PvP, and even criminal elements of your own Faction can murder you!
    HOW: Find out more about the game by checking out our sub-forums. Below you will find the leadership structure for the ArcheAge Chapter, any of these players can get you an invite to the guild, you both have to be online for an invite to be sent, the best way to see if the Officer or Sergeant is around is to check on the AJSA Teamspeak!
