    As to not interfere with the EF event time, this event will be pushed 1 hour back. (Again)
    Big changes will be coming in 2017! Thanks for your continuous support in keeping these community events alive!  Before quitting 2016 we are please to announce that we are doing a special throwback BF4 event right after our BF1 one. It is advisable that you start downloading the game ASAP, no DLCs will be required but is preferable to have just in case. While we have fully transfered over to Battlefield 1, we thought this would be a good idea to say farewell to one of our first official and founding game of this community!
    Depending on the number of participants we will receive during this event, we will be playing either on Rush (24 players) or Operation (40 or 64 players). To ensure that everyone will be playing on the same server as fast as possible, it would be a advisable to start adding one another on Origin (Please refer to this thread for posting your Origin ID and finding others). 2 hours later we will switch over to Battlefield 4 and pretty much do the same thing.
    *Time: Battlefield 1 - December 30th on 6:00pm EST/ 11:00pm GMT - Event Duration: 4 hours
              Battlefield 4 - 8:00pm EST/ 1:00am GMT
    Be awared that we still have an existing platoon up for Battlefield 4, if you want your AJSA tag in-game (and generally looking badass) be sure to join it, unless you already did so. (Be sure to log in before clicking the link)
    Host: QwiK (Origin ID: QwiKAJSA)
    Voice Server: We will be using our Discord Server for this event. AJSA Discord ­­> Voice Channel > Battlefield 1
    If you have any problems, suggestions or concerns regarding this event to make, then please refer to our PC game host QwiK. Else please refer to our dedicated sub-forum.
    See you in the Battlefield! 
    * Times could always changes, if so please refer to the event post again if any changes or update has been made.

    By Conan, in Frontpage,


    With winter finally coming to us all, it is time to turn our attention to the months of November and December. As many of you probably know, these two months are filled with a myriad of different holidays across the different cultures, including (but not limited to) Thanksgiving, Christmas and New Year's Eve. Aside from that, many people spend this time of the year with their family and/or travelling. As such, we, the Expeditionary Conclave, felt it best not to host new games during these two months. Rather we will dedicate this time to do a recap of the more popular games we hosted during the last year and as such, we will spend the nine weekends of these two months revisiting nine of our games (the last two events will be held on the last two Fridays of December, as to not interfere with Christmas and New Year's celebrations). 
    This weeks game will be Burnout: Paradise!
     
    Event layout
    Saturday, the 5th of November, at 9pm GMT/ 5pm EDT: Speed Runners
    Saturday, the 12th of November, at 9pm GMT/ 4pm EDT: Team Fortress 2
    Saturday, the 19th of November, at 9pm GMT/ 4pm EDT: MechWarrior Online
    Saturday, the 26th of November, at 9pm GMT/ 4pm EDT: Rising Storm/ Red Orchestra 2
    Saturday, the 3rd of December, at 9pm GMT/ 4pm EDT: Tabletop Simulator
    Saturday, the 10th of December, at 9pm GMT/ 4pm EDT: Guns of Icarus Online
    Saturday, the 17th of December, at 9pm GMT/ 4pm EDT: Payday 2
    Friday, the 23rd of December, at 9pm GMT/ 4pm EDT: Dungeon Defenders 2
    Friday, the 30th of December, at 9pm GMT/ 4pm EDT: Burnout: Paradise
     
    And just to make things even more fun, we'll put those of you who manage to attend all events in their entire duration down for one of our rare contest pips, for when forum awards make a return.
     
                        
     
    Dedicated Players
    We encourage commitment and attendance within the EF, this we offer attendance pips for those players, who attend at least 50% of the events. For which you will receive said pip, once awards made their return.
