Hi all, hope you're doing well! We're approaching the end of July (already!) and we're closing out the last full week of the month with a stacked list of gaming activities. We're featuring titles such as Fortnite: Battle Royale, Sea of Thieves, Elite Dangerous, and more! This weekend will also mark 'AJSA Special Operations: New Worlds' where the entire AJSA community will rally together to play and explore. On Xbox we will be showcasing 'Minecraft' where our world has been converted to an online Realm. We're also inviting PC members to come play! We've been working around the clock all month preparing for the Special Operation and we're very excited to share with everyone all the new changes we've made. Hope to see you there!
News & Updates
Special Operations: New Worlds - As mentioned above the AJSA Special Operation for July will be held this weekend. 'Special Operations: New Worlds' will take members across PC and console in a journey across land and space! Members from Playstation 4 will be playing No Man's Sky while Xbox and PC members will play Minecraft! We've turned our Xbox world into an online Realm where Xbox/PC members can play in a cross-play environment. Please check out the main Special Operation article for additional information. Cya there!
Featured Game Nights [July 25th & July 29th]
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 July 25th - Friday the 13th: the Video Game - 7:00pm EST - Host: Sickshock6
- Sunday July 29th - Elite Dangerous - 7:00pm EST - Host: MasterfulJoe101
AJSA Xbox One Weekly Event Schedule [July 24th to July 28th]
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.
Fortnite: Battle Royale - Xbox One Event - Tues. July 24th, 2018 @7:30pm EST (12:30am GMT)
Join the Angry Army on Xbox One this Tuesday night as we celebrate Fortnite: Battle Royale's 1st Birthday! Fornite for the past year has served as a unifying force within the Xbox community, bringing together members old and new across a multitude of events and special occasions. Earlier this month we came together to observe the first day of Season 5.
As part of the 1st Birthday for Fortnite: Battle Royale, there will be a special in-game activity where you can ean various birthday comestics and items by completing challenges and quests. Players of all skill levels are welcome to play. Victory Royales are nice but are not the primary focus. We're here to have a good time, kick some arse, and last as long as we can!
For those who have yet to experience Fortnite: Battle Royale in an AJSA group setting or you've never played the game before consider coming out this Tuesday night and play for a few hours. This is a great time to get into the action. If you have any questions about this upcoming event, please reach out to our hosts. Thank you!
Time: July 24th, 2018 @7:30pm EST (12:30am EST)

Sea of Thieves - Xbox One Event - Thurs. July 26th, 2018 @7:30pm EST (12:30am GMT)
Ahoy, yer scurvy dogs! Set your sails, Captain Runebeard and the pirates of the Angry Army are returning to Sea of Thieves this Thursday night! Unleash your inner 'Angry' pirate, plot with your crew, and set course for hidden riches in this treacherous new world. As this game is cross-play enabled, PC and Xbox players can play with each other! Any PC members interested in playing? Please message me your Gamertag in advance or message me during the event for an invite!
Currently pirate crew sizes are limited to four players, so we will have multiple groups and parties up simultaneously during the event. Main focus of this event will be helping players rank up with their Guilds, earn gold, and complete various Voyages.
The main point of contact for the event will be Rune [Gamertag: AScapeRunePlaya], so if you join late and need a crew to play with, please contact him and he'll get you connected with an AJSA party with an open spot.
Interested in learning more about Sea of Thieves? Will it be your first time playing? Check out this guide.
Cya on the waters this Thursday night!
Time: July 26th, 2018 @7:30pm EST (12:30am EST)

Minecraft - Special Operations - Fri. July 27th, 2018 @7:30pm EST (12:30am GMT)
Organizers from PC and Xbox One are joining together on Minecraft. We're turned the Xbox community world into an online 'Minecraft Realm' where members across PC and console can come play during the Special Operation. Due to limits on how many people can be online in a Realm at one time, we are breaking up the Minecraft event into two phases to ensure both sides can get to play. Each phase will be curated to a respective platform.
The Xbox Phase of the event will take place this Friday night. We'll be showcasing all the new changes and updates we've made to the world. There will be a tour of the new 'Angry Lodge' and base. Expedition and building supplies will also be distributed to participants. The group will be split into two teams with one team focusing on exploring and one team focused on building.
This Special Operation will have you document your adventures. To archive and share your experience, you can:
- Take screenshots/pictures
- Record video
- Keep a log/journal
We will be collecting all pictures and videos following the conclusion of the event. We look forward to moving ahead with this next chapter of our Minecraft world. See you on Friday night!
