Shagger liked a article by WITHASTICK, Community Spotlight 03/14/16 - The Emerald Rune
Today’s Spotlight Interview I swallow my pride as a Sony Pony and sit down with the Xbox One Commander, RuneX. Now I know what you’re saying, “How could I possibly lower myself like this! Don’t you know who they’re!” Yes they may be our immortal enemy, our Lex to our Superman, our Joker to our Batman (Because… we’re the good guys always). But in the end what truly can be done? When an Unstoppable Force meets an Immovable Object, nothing is the final outcome. So instead of being nothing, I hold a hand out and see a future together. I see a dream- OH! Sorry, lost track of what I was doing. We’ll be talking about the history of the Xbox One Division, what it’s like to run an entire Division, as well as a bit of friendly console rivalry laughs.
Question 1: Thank you Commander RuneX for taking the time to sit down and talk. For those who may not possibly know, can you explain what you do for the Xbox One Division? As well as the AJSA Community as a whole?
RuneX: Thank you for considering me for this interview. I currently oversee and supervise all internal operations within the AJSA Xbox One Division. I coordinate and organize, along with the Xbox One staff, daily events on the Xbox One. We work together, plan and schedule to make these daily events a reality. I also help maintain the Xbox One sub-forum and monitor any incoming posts from new or existing members. With the AJSA Community as a whole I help contribute articles time to time outlining the Xbox One Division's monthly activities. Additionally I currently edit the game footage in Xbox One event videos you see on the AJSA Gaming Channel. I also act in a supervisory role to the AJSA SMITE PC group. Ground operations are performed by the SMITE PC Game Officer.
Question 2: How does the Xbox One Division conduct it’s side of the Community with events and supporting games?
RuneX: In the Xbox One Division we have several talented and dedicated people who’ve taken up leadership positions to not only lead these events, but also run the day to day ground operations during off-event hours. We pride ourselves on delivering comfortable, fun, and cordial events. All Game Officers, Sergeants, and event organizers will work their best to make sure everyone is accounted for and able to play. I have an open door policy when it comes to members approaching me with ideas and games they think the Xbox One should support. If they are willing to put in the work to make that happen, I'll work right alongside them, and help them as they start out.
Question 3: The first Xbox One Commander was Doshka, who retired nearly a year ago. However, you worked with him during your time with the Xbox One Division. How has working with Doshka in the past helped you carry the torch forward as the new Xbox One Commander or in general?
RuneX: I had the pleasure to meet Doshka back when I originally joined the AJSA in 2014, back when the console communities simply had a single Game/Community Officer overseeing things. As I started attending more events and getting active on the forums I was able to interact more with this individual. I was able to finally work alongside him on an organizational level when he promoted me to Battlefield 4 Game Officer in the Xbox One Division. He was not someone who would constantly look over your shoulder or demand any extraordinary tasks from me; he allowed me room to succeed, and to fail. He laid the foundation for the Xbox One Community; he has an important place in our Division's history. When I took over for him I knew it was very important to carry on that legacy and to build upon it from he left off.
Question 4: It says on your profile in your interests section that “I enjoy politics, gaming, retro game collecting and perservation, YouTube/Twitch, Game of Thrones, zombie shows and long walks on the beach.” What would you say I got you a date with a zombie Robb Stark at a beach, who would love to go home later to plays games/Netflix and chill?
RuneX: I'd rather we watch highlights of the latest US Republican Presidential debates than Netflix. If you can make that happen, hit me up.
Question 5: How do you want me to break the news to the Xbox One Division that you secretly have a PlayStation 4?
RuneX: Members of the Xbox One Division know that I'm a gamer all-round. I do own a Playstation 4 and own nearly 30 games for the console. I also have a Wii U. I have a diverse collection of console dating back to the Atari 2600. Due to my commitment to attend every event on the Xbox One Division, I do miss out on attending Game Nights but whenever the Xbox One takes a day off and that day is a Saturday, I may stop by and say hello.
Question 6: Out of all the games the Xbox One Division has featured at events or supported, what was your personal favorite? Don’t worry there is no right answer.
RuneX: Out of all the games the Xbox One Division has supported since it became an official part of the AJSA Community, I will have to say that my personal favorite event has to be Titanfall. This game holds a special place in our division's history and it is where many of us got our start. Even now when we decide to hold one-off special events for Titanfall, we always have a great time, get good turnout, and enjoy ourselves.
Question 7: Outside of the AJSA Community and the Xbox One Division, what games do you play casually or want to play when they are released? Any of them PlayStation 4 exclusive titles that you will play on your secret PlayStation 4?
RuneX: When there is time to myself, I do enjoy playing games like Fallout 4, Metal Gear Solid V, and The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt. Often times I put aside playing solo and/or finishing these titles to group up and play with members in multiplayer games. With games coming up I do look forward to the new Hitman, Overwatch, Gigantic, and I have hope they may come out with a new Max Payne or Max Payne Collection like trilogy for current-gen consoles/systems. I do look forward to the upcoming Uncharted 4.
Question 8: As PlayStation Commander I find myself looking to our Xbox One/PC brothers and learning from you guys. Has there been a moment where you’ve looked to the PlayStation/PC, learn something and applied it to your own Division?
RuneX: It is important as a leader to be open minded and aware of what is going on around them. They must be willing to learn everyday. In a unique and expansive gaming community like the AJSA we are in a very special position to see what is going on daily basis in each part of this group. I look our PS4 friends and I see they are not hesitant to take chances with events. Game Nights stray away from your conventional triple AAA games and often times decide to host games that aren't so widely known but have a loyal player base or they host events for indie, and free-to-play games. So when the Xbox One staff and I are sitting down, crafting monthly event schedules and plans, we agree that taking chances is part of the process and want to make sure we enter in some unique, non-AAA titles into the fold.
Question 9: As a fellow Commander who started out in the console side of the Community and worked his way up the ladder. What advice would you share to those who have similar dreams?
RuneX: For those who wish to take their AJSA experience to another level they must take initiative and work hard to see their ambitions become a reality. Organizing gamers and coordinating events for games is not an easy task. If you maintain a good attitude, establish friendships and network with folks on the ground, and maintain healthy relationships with your local Game Officers/Sergeants and/or Commanders, you will see progress. I will say that not every ambition will become a reality, sometimes things just don't work out. However if you're willing to move on and learn from your experience and put your knowledge into another goal, you'll be helping yourself and the people around you.
Question 10: This month’s Community Challenge Ides of March, finds people betraying one another for glory. You’ve been placed on a special Bonus Betrayal Bounty List. Knowing you’ve been placed on the list, does it make you second guess who your crew will be when you’ll be in The Division’s Dark Zone?
RuneX: Knowing I'm on this Bounty list, I will be on heightened alert moreso now when I'll be in the The Division's Dark Zone. As Commander often times when members take me down in a multiplayer games they are very pleased with themselves and see it as a mark of honor of sorts. When I get them back, the celebrations cease of course. The target on my back comes with the title so I'm used to being chased down etc. I will keep an extra eye out definitely when it comes to the Division. I know I'll have folks to rely on in my squad but who knows what may happen.
The Ides of March, if you’re a movie hipster you’d think about the movie starring Ryan Gosling and George Clooney (Can a movie have so much handsome?). Some of you who listen during History class would know it’s the day Julius Caesar was betrayed by his fellow senate, (All 60 of them) and stabbed poor Julius. The rest of you are saying “What are you talking about?” Betrayal is this month’s Community Challenge. You’re the betrayer, your friends are Julius, and your Rome is The Division’s Dark Zone. Go into the Dark Zone with your fellow comrades. Fight the horrors of the Dark Zone, and when the moment is just right betray your friend/friends for your own personal gain. With video proof of your betrayal and being proud of what you've done (Because you’re a monster), enter the video in for a chance to win. Commit the greatest betrayal in all of AJSA.
If for some reason you’re still confused, here’s a Reference Video:
Enter your Video here: http://angryjoeshow.com/ajsa/forum/42-community-content/
Enter your Video before 03/21/16.
Include #BETRAYAL in your entry post’s title.
In your Video betray a friend/friends. The Video must show you in a group with the friend/friends, leaving the group, and killing the friend/friends.
Videos may come from any platform that has The Division (PS4, XB1, PC).
Videos may be edited from any software (PS4’s Sharefactory and XB1’s Upload Studio count).
Videos may be uploaded and linked by any source (Youtube, Twitch, Facebook, Twitter, etc).
(Optional) In your Video betray anyone on the “Bonus Betrayal Bounty List”. Doing so will give you a higher chance of winning, but not a guaranteed win. In your Video it must show you in a group with them, leaving the group, and killing them.
(Optional) Commanders and anyone on the “Bonus Betrayal Bounty List”, no one said you can’t take part and commit betrayal on each other or others.
Shagger liked a article by Doshka17, AJSA Destiny Cross-Platform Competition
What is the Cross-Platform Competition?
Put simply, it is a series of events taking place over the course of one year played in friendly competition between the Xbox One and the Playstation 4. Each event will have a point value, which ever console wins that event will add that point value to their score. The console with the higher score at the end of the competition wins.
What kind of events? How does the scoring work?
There will be two events every month, one PvE (Strike/Raid speed runs i.e.) and one PvP (Crucible/Iron Banner) oriented. Each will have a point value equal to how many months into the competition we are in. For example, September is the first month of the competition, so each event will be worth one point. October events will be worth two points each, November events three points each, and so on and so forth. We'll have a scoreboard set up so that you may see where each console currently stands.
How do I participate in an event?
Each event will be announced well in advance, giving us plenty of time to organize a team for each side. If you wish to participate in an event, you must be able to go from start to finish. If we are doing a raid for an event, something that requires a great deal of time to do compared to other content, you need to be able to stay for the whole thing. Time requirements will vary based on the event. If your schedule meets the requirements and you wish to take up a slot, inform your console community officer:
Doshka17 for XB1
WithAStick for PS4
We will try to keep participation diverse for these events. More active players have a better chance of being chosen of course, but we'll try to bring in new blood with each event.
Now with all that said, here is the first event:
Around The Galaxy In 20 Levels
Which console can get an AJSA member to level 20 first? If you hit level 20 in Destiny during the launch week make sure to follow the following steps:
Record the clip using XB1 DVR ("Xbox, Record that!")
Edit the clip using Upload Studio and save it.
With the XB1 Youtube App, upload the clip onto Youtube.
Send Doshka17 a link to the video.
Record proving your level using PS4's Share button (double tap the Share button to start recording.)
Edit the clip using Share Factory and save it.
With the PS4 upload the clip to YouTube using USB.
Send Withastick a link to the video.
The exact time and date considered when compared will be the EXACT moment that we receive the message. So once you hit 20, move fast! The first player to hit 20 and bring us proof will have a reserved spot for them during the first twitch streamed competitive event.
Will Joe be at any of these events?
I have no idea.
And now the serious business part:
TOXIC BEHAVIOR TOWARDS EITHER CONSOLE COMMUNITY WILL NOT BE TOLERATED
This competition is a friendly rivalry between fellow AJSA members, and more importantly, between fellow gamers.
Keep it clean and respectful, or see yourself removed from all future official Destiny events. I hate sounding harsh with this, but it must be absolutely clear.
We've been looking forward to this moment for a long time, and can not wait to share it with our fellow members. Good luck, Guardians. Fight for your console, fight for your brothers, but most importantly, fight to have fun.
Xbox One Community Officer
