A quick thank you to everyone who took part in our Sea of Thieves launch week activities! We held a midnight launch party, several game nights, and an event all in a span of a few days. We appreciate everyone who came out to play, checked out the game, and offered their time to help out their fellow AJSA members who were just getting started. A couple times when we tried to play there were some server issues but in the end everything worked out fine. Thank you again for a fun week on the high seas!

AJSA Special Operation [Sat. Mar. 31st]
Join the AJSA Gaming Community across PC and console for our first Special Operation of 2018! We're changing things up a bit this year when it comes to Special Operations. This time around, each Division is featuring a title of their choice to best represent their community and showcase the best of what they have to offer. On Xbox One, we're having Overwatch be our featured title for the Special Operation. As our longest running event series (with nearly two years of weekly events), we felt it was only right that for the first Special Operation of 2018 that we showcase and have our flagship game represent the Xbox One during this community activity.
On Playstation 4, it is Monster Hunter World. On PC, it is Plantetside 2. For additional info, check out the Special Operations news article. To commemorate the first Special Operation of 2018, we're having a unique challenge tied into our communiy activity. There will be a 'Marathon Challenge' for all the Divisions to strive for and complete. The events must last for six or more hours for the challenge to be completed. Have fun and good gaming!

AJSA Xbox One Weekly Event Schedule [March 27th to March 31st]
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.

Come on by and build with us this Thursday night as we work and play in our Minecraft community world. Members are invited play, talk, and craft together with their fellow builders in the Angry Army.

The outpost at the underwater Sea Palace and our Battle Arena is now complete! Be sure to claim your rooms and decorate. If you want to check out the Battle Arena, feel free!
We have a central base for all members to start off in and use as a launching pad to explore the rest of the world. Additionally we have 'Bounties & Contracts' for members to complete during the event. You can earn new gear/loot by exploring new areas and discovering secret locations! All 'Bounties & Contracts' will be up at the central base at the start of the event on the 'Bounty Board'.
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.

Overwatch - Special Operation - Sat. Mar. 31st, 2018 @6:00pm EST (11:00pm GMT)
The long wait is over.....the AJSA Special Operation event is finally here! Across PC and console the AJSA community is coming together to play across a variety of games to rally members for a night of good gaming and fun.
On Xbox One we are showcasing Overwatch as our featured game during this community activity. Overwatch has evolved into our flagship title for our community on Xbox One. It is our longest running weekly event series with nearly two years worth of consistent, weekly events every Saturday night. We felt it was only appropriate to have Overwatch represent the Xbox One community during the first Special Operation of 2018.
We're starting an hour earlier than normal with the event scheduled to start at 6pm EST. Our goal is to reach six hours or more of gametime to complete the Special Operation 'Marathon' challenge. Our Division's personal goal is to exceed 12 hours total playtme, beating our old Overwatch event record from May 27th, 2017 when we played for 12 hours straight. Let's head out there and have some fun!
The host will set up a custom game lobby to start up the event to get everyone warmed up. Afterwards the host will determine to split up the group to play regular, online multiplayer. If you have suggestions on modes/themes for custom games, please message WookieJedi on Xbox Live.
