    News & Highlights
    Winter Break Conclusion -  After a two week break, the AJSA Xbox One Division is back in action! Our Winter Break formally concludes today (January 8th, 2018). We are resuming normal event activity tomorrow. We're excited and ready to rock n' roll! Hope you can join us.
    Top 10 Games of 2017 [Xbox List] - Last week we published our Top 10 Games of 2017 list (according to members of the Xbox Division). In case you missed it, here is a link to the article. Thank you to everyone who took part the voting process and contributed towards the completion of the article. Our friends on PC and Playstation 4 will be soon publishing their own member voted lists, so stay tuned for those articles!
    Xbox Information Thread - In an effort to better inform both new and existing members, we have provided an 'Xbox One Division Information' thread that covers all things Xbox. We cover details on events, game nights, the Club, and more. Additionally in this thread we cover our new Xbox Club 'Game Nights' initative and how you can participate in those activities. Click here to take a look at everything!
    Promotions - This past week here on the Xbox One Division we had two promotions within our staff. I'd like to take a moment to announce and recognize these two individuals:
    StraightUpMelon - Melon has been a member of the AJSA community since the Summer of 2015, first joining up with the Xbox One crew on Battlefield 4. It would be here where he would make his mark and get involved, growing as an active and respectable member of the community. In the Summer of 2016 Melon took part in our Rocket League Xbox One Tournament where he got his first start at game organizing. He left such a great impression with us, tagged along with his amazing work ethic, he was brought in the fold and was promoted to Sergeant shortly after the conclusion of the tournament.
    Melon has been an amazing team player within the Xbox community. He is an awesome supporter of the AJSA and is always willing and able to help out wherever he can. We greatly appreciate and value all the time and work he has put in to make the Xbox One Division the best it can be. A role model among his peers and a reliable team member, this promotion is well deserved! Thank you!
    Sickshock - Sick joined the community this past Summer and has quickly left a great impression with us. Active, friendly, and imagative, Sick is being brought onto the Xbox staff as a Sergeant. He will overseeing our new 'Game Nights' initative on the Xbox Club.
    Sick has had no issue making friends and getting involved with the community. He has shown such an enthusiastic and positive attitude towards game organizing. We're happy to formally bring in Sick to staff and are excited to work with him going into 2018. Thank you Sick for being a great member, colleague, and friend to the community!

    AJSA Xbox One Weekly Event Schedule [January 9th to January 13th]
    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.

    Welcome to the first Xbox One Weekly Event of 2018! We are officially back from 'Winter Break'. We hope everyone had a great holiday season! The Xbox team is ready to deliver you awesome and fun events this first week back, with Destiny 2 leading the charge.
    This event will focus on completing the Weekly Milestones and ranking up fellow Guardians. We'll be doing both Vanguard & Nightfall Strikes (for Curse of Osiris players, we'll also complete Heroic Strikes), Crucible, Missions/Quests, and other challenges. If you've been seeking an organized Destiny gaming group, this is a perfect opportunity for you to meet up and play with other like-minded members.
    Contact our Destiny Sergeant on Xbox One, MasterfulJoe101 on Xbox Live, if you have any questions/require assistance about this upcoming event. Hope you can join us in our adventures!

    Titanfall 2 - Xbox One Event - Thurs. Jan. 11th, 2018 @7:00pm EST (12:00am GMT)

    Prepare for Titanfall, 'Angry' Pilots. To help reign in the New Year, the AJSA on Xbox One is returning to the Frontier this Thursday night. Come spend your evening playing Titanfall 2 and enjoying some classic Titanfall action with the Xbox community!
    During the event we will squad up together as one group and do a mixture of custom and online games. If there is enough interest, we can also play the 'Frontier Defense' mode. Participants are encouraged to join the 'Official AJSA Network' in-game. Networks are a built in clan system within Titanfall 2. This way when you're playing Titanfall 2 outside an event, you can easily catch and see who is online playing Titanfall 2. This will allow you join up with other members without having to sort through your friends list.
    Cya on the Frontier!
    Event Summary:
    Time: January 11th, 2018 @7:00pm EST (12:00am EST)

Fortnite: Battle Royale is free to play mode part of the regular 'Fornite' game that members can download from the Xbox store at no cost. Squad up with your friends from the community and take dozens of other squads to claim victory in this fun and intense epic, fun battle for survival.
    Come on by and kick off the weekend with the Angry Army! Members of all skill levels are welcome to play. For people who have the full version of Fortnite, a seperate squad may be created by the host to allow you and others to play PvE content, after you've participated in the Battle Royale matches.
    There will likely be multiple parties up during this event so each squad may communicate easily and effectively. If you join late, simply message or join the Xbox Live parties of either one of the hosts and they will get you set up with a squad that has available space.

    Angry Joe's TOP 10 BEST GAMES OF 2017

    By WITHASTICK, in Frontpage,

    Due to some scheduling conflicts the month of January's events have been shifted around to help accomodate our hosts to give the members a better experience. The two Major changes are:
    Game Nights January games have been shifted around for the rest of January. Community Nights is put on a brief pause to help focus on Game Nights. No one is to blame for these changes, scheduling issues can happen at any time. As Commander I appreciate all my Staff members, and always prioritize their well beings over hosting any of our events. I understand this is disappointing news to some members who may have been excited for the past line-up. My goal with these event is to provide the best experience for everyone. I will continue to serve and provide that experience with the help of my great staff. See the new line-up for Game Nights below.
    Game Nights Line-up
    *Do not sign up for any of these Game Nights. Due to the changing landscape of games we do not list dates. Wait until the proper Game Nights announcement featuring the game you’re interested in.*
