    By RuneX, in Frontpage,

    Hey all, Happy Monday! Spring Break is over here in the Xbox One Division. Once again I'd like to thank all our organizers and members who made March an amazing month for AJSA gaming here on Xbox! Things aren't not slowing down one bit after this break. We're recharged and ready to get back in the fight. Our week back is jam packed with adventure and good fun! In this article we unviel to you not only what we're playing this week but also provide to you our complete April activity outline. Plan ahead and game on. Cya at the events!
    News & Updates
    Minecraft: Xbox One Edition Last Event [Apr. 12th]
    This Thursday night on April 12th, 2018 at 7:00pm EST will be our last event for 'Minecraft: Xbox One Edition' before we move over organizing efforts to the new version of 'Minecraft'. In short, here on Xbox One we have two different versions of Minecraft. There is the 'Xbox One Edition' (the successor to....you guessed it...the Xbox 360 Edition) and then just 'Minecraft', the new version that was released in September 2017. The new version offers more content, online servers, cross-play, no item caps, infinite worlds, and much more.
    Thanks to your feedback, we're moving our community world to the new version on April 19th, 2018. The current community world we play in now was originally founded back in August 2017 and we've been going strong since. We're all happy we can continue to play and expand our world in this new version.
    Before then we're going to hold a special send-off celebration of the Xbox One Edition in the form of a story-driven, multi-step adventure/quest that members will participate in. Travel across new lands, battle massive mob armies, and discover secrets hidden deep in the darkest corners of the world...
    We originally started events for Minecraft: Xbox One Edition all the way back in August 2015 and ever since then Minecraft has been a staple within the AJSA community on Xbox One. Minecraft has helped grow and sustain this amazing community for nearly three years. We are closing this chapter of Minecraft with this event, but a new one will be started shortly after. We hope you can join us in new journey. Thank you.
    Featured Game Nights [April 11th & 15th]
    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.
    Going forward in each Xbox weekly article, we will feature a section that will include infomation on upcoming Game Nights on Xbox for that particular week. Not only will members see our notices in the Club but now in our forum articles as well. For additional information on Game Nights/Weekly Events, check out our Xbox Community Information thread.
    To help usher in our first week back, we have two Game Nights prepared for you:
    Wednesday April 11th - PlayerUnknown's Battlegrounds - 7:00pm EST - Host: Sickshock6 Sunday April 15th - Sea of Thieves - 7:00pm EST - Host: Sickshock6

    How Can I Join An Xbox One Event? - For new members/first time event participants, I highly encourage you to add all the hosts as your friend on Xbox Live (Gamertags are listed for every host below). You can also join the AJSA Xbox Club and add hosts/members there. All event and game night parties are launched from the Club. Additionally, please review our Code of Conduct.
    Communication during events are done primarily in the Xbox Live Party system. In case of emergency, we will use the AJSA Discord Channel. We accept and make adjustments for people who are shy in large groups and/or for people who have no mics.
    If by chance you do not have the host as a friend, please message the host for an invite to the game/party during the event and then exchange friend requests upon entry to the party. Most, if not all, event parties will be visible to all Xbox Club members. Look under "Looking for Group" at the start/during an event to view the event party and join up.
    If you would like to give advance notice to the host that you would like to play, you are free to do so. Otherwise keep note of the event start times and join the host's Xbox Live party to begin. If you have any questions, please contact me directly at "RuneX" on the forums or on Xbox Live. To learn more about the AJSA Xbox One Division, check out our Community Information thread.

    Welcome to our last event for 'Minecraft: Xbox One Edition'! Join us as we close out this chapter of our Minecraft Nights on Xbox One and usher in a new era. We originally started events for Minecraft: Xbox One Edition all the way back in August 2015 and it has been going strong ever since.
    To give it a proper send off, we have a special story-driven, multi-step 'Quest' planned for this event filled with mystery, drama, and action! Plenty of surprises are in store for participants.
    Starting on April 19th we will be moving over to the new version of Minecraft on Xbox. We will no longer be using the 'Xbox One Edition', instead we will just be playing on 'Minecraft' (the new version released in late 2017). Thanks to your feedback in March, our community world will remain untouched, and we will continue to use the world in the new version (the new version of Minecraft allows us to upload worlds from the XB1 Edition to this game). More info on the April 19th event will be disclosed next week.
    We have a central base for all members to start off in and use as a launching pad to kick off the quest.Participants are highly encouraged to join the Xbox Live Party of the host "RuneX" during the event. If the party is full, please message him so room can be made for you. Early attendance is encouraged due to limited spots in the server.

    By Conan, in Frontpage,

    This Saturday, we at the EF will dive into the battlefields of Europe during the Napoleonic Wars with the game Holdfast: Nations at War. In case you don't know, Holdfast is an early access game not too dissimilar to Mount & Blade: Napoleonic Warfare and improves on many aspects of the game. As the game is still early access, not all factions of the era are included yet and some other elements still need to be introduced further down the line. Nonetheless the game delivers excellently on the aspects already introduced.
    The event will take place this Saturday, the 7th, at 9pm BST/ 4pm EDT on our Discord Server.

    By RuneX, in Frontpage,

    Happy Monday, everyone. Hope you all had a great weekend. This article will be fairly short as we announce our Spring Break, feature a simple recap of the month of March for AJSA Xbox activities and we cover our Overwatch event that we had last Saturday night in observance of the first 'AJSA Special Operation' of 2018. Enjoy!
    News & Updates
    Spring Break Notice
    From April 1st to April 8th the Xbox community will be on Spring Break, meaning we will have no scheduled events during this time. If you're a member of the AJSA Club, please be sure to check any and all notices for upcoming Game Nights or other gaming activities. While we are on break, we still offer opportunities for those who want to group up and play. We're a gaming community after all, does the organizing ever really stop?
    March Recap
    The following games were featured as Weekly Events/Game Nights on Xbox in March 2018:
    Battlefield 1 Battlefield 4 Minecraft COD: Black Ops [backward compatibility] COD: World War II Fortnite: Battle Royale Rainbow Six: Siege Overwatch Sea of Thieves Monster Hunter World Gears of War 4 PUBG The following Xbox videos were produced for the AJSA Gaming Youtube Channel:
    PUBG Rainbow Six: Siege Overwatch Thank you for an amazing March! We hope April will turn out even better and expand into more games, while maintaining support for our community favorite titles. Check back next Monday for our complete April Xbox event outline and gaming activity plans.
    Overwatch Event Recap [3.31.2018]
    A special thanks to everyone who participated in our Overwatch event this past Saturday night [3.31.2018]. This event was organized in accordance of the first AJSA Special Operation of 2018. We broke two Xbox community records:
    Overwatch has surpassed Battlefield 4 and has become our longest running Xbox 'Weekly Event' series. The event lasted for 16 straight hours, running from 6pm EST to 10am EST. We broke our previous record of 12 hours and 30 minutes, set last year on May 27th, 2017 during our One Year Anniversary celebratory event for.....you guessed it....Overwatch! This is the second time in the row our Overwatch crew has stepped up to the plate to create these new records. Before May 2017, Battlefield 4 held the Xbox record as the longest running event at 12 hours (achieved originally in April 2016). Thank you for those who came by during all hours of the night to show support and an exceptional thanks to those who rode out the event for the entire thing, staying up until it was all finished. Congrats, you're offically crazy for staying up that long! It was truly humbling and I'm so proud of what we as the Xbox community accomplished!
    We have an amazing team of organizers and members who made this possible. Another special shoutout to our Overwatch Officer, WookieJedi, who ran over seven hours worth of custom games! Wookie...we're gonna have to think of some new custom modes after this!
    Will Overwatch hold this record forever on Xbox or will another game and crew step up to try and beat this new record? Only time will tell!
