    By RuneX, in Frontpage,

    Greetings! Thank you to everyone who came out last week during our first round back from break. We're back in full swing and we hope you can continue to join us on our adventures. Several community favorite and other interesting titles are being featured as Weekly Events and Game Nights here on Xbox this week. Games such as SMITE, Overwatch, and others are being showcased. We're also continuing our 'Game Pass Thursday' series that started off with 'Human Fall Flat' last week and the game slated for this Thursday was voted on by members of the community! If you wish to take part in the voting for the next Game Pass Thursday, please be sure to look out for a voting poll in the AJSA Xbox Club to participate!
    Sea of Thieves - Due to the recent delay of the 'Forsaken Shores' update on Sea of Thieves, we are moving our originally scheduled Game Night from Wednesday September 19th to Sunday September 30th. SMITE will take over as the Game Night for this Wednesday. We look forward exploring and looting the new lands as soon as possible with you. Thank you for understanding!
    AJSA Gaming
    A new video is live on the AJSA Gaming Youtube channel. Highlights from a recent Xbox One event where a group of us gathered to play the game 'Human Fall Flat'. An online multiplayer mode was recently added to the game and we decided to check it out!
    Featured Game Nights [September 18th & 23rd]
    Xbox Game Nights were introduced back in January of this year. These are local AJSA Xbox Club activities that are normally held during days where we have no events scheduled. These organized play sessions are structured to be more loose and laidback, creating more opportunities for us as a community to reach out to more games and play even more with each other.
    For additional information on Game Nights/Weekly Events, check out our Xbox Community Information thread.
    Wednesday Sept. 18th - SMITE - 7:00pm EST - Host: Sickshock6 Sunday Sept. 23rd - Paladins - 7:00pm EST - Host: Sickshock6 Both titles featured in Game Nights this week are Free to Play!
    DOOM - Xbox Event - Thurs Sept 20th, 2018 @7:30pm EST [12:00am GMT]

    Welcome to Game Pass Thursdays! Every Thursday night this month in September we will be featuring a different title from the Xbox Game Pass library. Our objectives are to try out some new titles that we've never played before or return to some community favorites and experiencing them in a group setting.
    This week for 'Game Pass Thursday' will be featuring DOOM! Rip and tear through hordes of demons in this intense first person shooter. We'll be playing a mix of both online multiplayer and SnapMap modes. Please note you do not need the Game Pass to participate in this activity. If you own DOOM already without the Game Pass, feel free to come by and play!

    Soldiers of the Angry Army! your commander needs you on the battlefield! in preparation for Battlefield 5 (or more likely the disappointment it will become) we will be holding an event to look back at what BF used to be before it lost all respect for its franchise and fan base, return with us to the front lines and show your valor and courage! for the Angry Army!
    When: Wendesday the 19th, 11am PDT/ 6pm BST
    Where: AJSA Discord server will be found during event (due to player volume and some server hopping)

    By Conan, in Frontpage,

    Welcome one and all. With the release of the new Dharma Xpac to EU4 I thought this be a great time to open up a grand AJSA MP session and test the new feature. Will you be in India and master the trade and politic web of spices? Or maybe Europe and claim the HRE? Or maybe colonize the world and become and unstoppable powerhouse. All this and more could happen but only if you can navigate the web of political allies and enemies and take what is yours.
    Event will be Saturday, Sept. 15th 2018 at 2pm EDT/7pm BST on Discord
