Greetings, everyone! I hope you all are having a fantastic day. I want to thank everyone who came out to the Minecraft event on Xbox One as part of the AJSA Special Operation this past weekend. It was a ton of fun and an excellent way to open up the next chapter of the world. Please stay tuned this week for more information on what is going on with the world, what the groundrules are, how you can get an invite, and how PC/Nintendo Switch members can get involved as well.
This week on Xbox we are showcasing a packed lineup of games in observance of StraightUpMelon, a decorated and long-term serving Officer in our Xbox community. Later this month in Augusut he will be departing for College and his main focus will be on his studies as it should be. All the games selected this week across our Events and Game Nights were hand-picked by Melon himself! We hope you enjoy the titles we're offering and hope everyone has a great time.
Thank you Melon for your service, friendship, and dedication to the community. We will all miss you!
Featured Game Nights [August 1st & August 5th]
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 Aug. 1st - Rocket League - 7:00pm EST - Host: Sickshock6 & StraightUpMelon
- Sunday Aug. 5th - Rainbow Six: Siege - 7:00pm EST - Host: Sickshock6 & StraightUpMelon
AJSA Xbox One Weekly Event Schedule [July 31st to August 3rd] - the Games of Melon
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.
