News & Updates
Destiny 2 Raid - This past weekend our first full AJSA Xbox fireteam on Destiny 2 completed the 'Leviathan Raid'! After weeks of practice, numerous Raid nights, and countless hours spent attempting to beat it, a fireteam led by our Xbox Game Sergeant for Destiny 2, MasterfulJoe, defeated the Cabal Emperor Calus.
Additionally this fireteam also unlocked a 'Clan Raid Engram' for the entire AJSA Xbox One Destiny 2 clan, allowing people to freely collect a piece of Raid gear. Nice work!
The fireteam consisted of:
- MasterfulJoe [Squad Leader]
Reminder - AJSA 4th Year Anniversary [Xbox Outline] - Happy 4th Birthday, AJSA! During the week of November 13th the entire community will unite together to celebrate the founding of the AJSA. To commemorate this occasion, organizers across PC, PS4, and Xbox One are working hard to bring you an amazing week of gaming filled with fun and engaging celebratory activities.
The Anniversary is the biggest party of the year, something you will not want to miss out on! It is important that we not only come together to play video games, but also use this as an opportunity to reflect on the past year and look ahead, building a strong foundation off of these activities to take the community into 2018.
The AJSA Xbox One Division is ready to help participate and contribute towards the Anniversary celebration. Keeping with tradition within our Division, we have a full week of gaming festivities planned to observe and honor the founding of the AJSA. This means that we will have a scheduled event every single day out of the Anniversary week. In this article we will provide an outline of the events slated for that week, along with providing info on our Anniversary raffle and the returning 'Contracts' system from last year. Enjoy!
AJSA 4th Year Anniversary - Xbox Outline
This year the themes of the Anniversary week on Xbox will be about teamwork, community spirit, and unity. Each event will be tailored to incorporate as much squad play and communication as possible. Each Xbox event will have a ‘Contract’, a challenge that participants can voluntarily complete when attending the event. Some events may have more than one Contract.
Additionally, as an additional feature of the Anniversary week on Xbox, there will be a raffle. Each member who attends an event will be entered into this raffle.
Every AJSA member who participates in the events scheduled for the Anniversary week on the Xbox One will be entered into a raffle. The more events you participate in, the more times your name gets entered into the raffle, and you increase your chances to win.
At the end of all Anniversary activities, three random winners will be drawn. Rewards are as followed:
- 1st Place - Free digital game up to $60 choosen by the winner.
- 2nd Place - $25 Xbox Live Gift Card
- 3rd Place - $15 Xbox Live Gift Card
On December 4th, after the random winners are drawn, they will be contacted privately by me [Rune] and then the winners will be announced publicly.
Each event on Xbox One will have an associated challenge, called a "Contract", which event participants can voluntarily complete. Every contract you complete will also enter your name into the raffle. These Contracts can range from getting a certain amount of points in a game to working together with your AJSA squad to overcome an obstacle.
As the theme of the Anniversary week on Xbox this year is about teamwork, a lot of the Contracts will revolve around you and your squad completing certain objectives. If your squad collectively completes a Contract, everyone in the squad will be marked as have completed the Contract, and all names will be entered again in the raffle. Want those extra raffle spots? Work together!
Some events will have more than one Contract. With events that list two Contracts, only one Contract completion will be counted towards the raffle.
- Every AJSA participant will be entered into the raffle. The more events you attend, the more times your name gets entered into the raffle.
- Every event will have one or two Contracts. These Contracts are challenges that members can voluntarily complete. If there is an event with two Contracts, only one completed Contract will be counted.
- Majority of the Contracts will be squad based, meaning to complete a Contract it will have to be done in a collective fashion. Work with your squad to complete Contracts, not only earning an extra spot in the raffle for yourself but earning an extra spot for the rest of your team.
- The host, along with members of the Xbox One staff, will be keep track of all event attendance and will keep note of members completing Contracts.
- Raffle winners will be approached by the Xbox One Commander and then the winners will be announced publicly on December 4th.
- All the events will be recorded. Footage from each event will be compiled into an Anniversary Event Video for the AJSA Gaming YouTube Channel. Please submit footage to Rune if you wish to share clips from your recording/streams of the Anniversary events so you can be part of, and receive credit in, the Xbox One Anniversary montage video in late November.

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).

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.
