AJSA 5th Year Anniversary Events - Xbox One Division Informational Hub


Details on: Event Times, Contracts, and Raffle

Happy 5th Birthday, AJSA! During the week of November 12th the entire community will unite together to celebrate the founding of the AJSA. On both PC and console, there will be numerous activities planned for members to engage in and play with each other.  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 2019.

We want to give our thanks and appreciation to all those who make this community the best it can be. To all the members and organizers who come in day to day, week to week, month to month, year to year....THANK YOU...you make all of this possible. Thank you for being part of this community. Thank you for playing.

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.

This informational thread will provide a complete outline of the events slated for that week, along with info concerning our Anniversary raffle and the returning 'Contracts' system from last year.

AJSA Xbox One Club

Be sure to enlist in the AJSA Xbox Club during the Anniversary week! On your console dashboard, look for the 'Community' tab and click on 'Clubs on Xbox' on the top right of the screen. Then search up "Official AJSA Xbox One Community". Request an invite to join and a formal invitation will be sent to you. You can also message any of the Club admins for an invite. The Clubs will make it easier to find fellow members at a moments notice and squad up with them on a game. You'll also be able to keep track of event notices and parties, both within the Anniversary week and beyond.

Raffle & Contracts

Each Xbox event will have a ‘Contract’, a challenge that participants can voluntarily complete when attending the event. Contracts will seek to incorporate as much squad play and communication as possible. Some events may have more than one Contract.

Additionally there will be an 'Anniversary Raffle' on Xbox One. 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 November 26th, after the random winners are drawn, they will be contacted privately by me [Rune] and then the winners will be announced publicly.

For those who participate in the AJSA 'Special Operation: Auinquennial' events on Xbox One, you will also be entered into the rafflle.


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.

Since a fair amount of Contracts will revolve around you and your squad completing certain objective, 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 or more Contracts, only one Contract completion will be counted towards the raffle. This means members can earn up to two spots in the raffle per event (by attending an event and completing a Contract). To top things off....we are introducing 'Bonus Objectives', challenges that the hosts will keep secret until the time of the event. If you and your team complete the challenge, you will earn a bonus spot in the raffle. Please note not every event will have a bonus objective.


  • 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 more Contracts. These Contracts are challenges that members can voluntarily complete. If there is an event with two or more Contracts, only one completed Contract will be counted.
  • Members can earn only up to two spots in the raffle per event (by attending an event and completing a Contract).
    • However if you complete a Bonus Objective, your name will entered again.
  • 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 November 26th.
  • 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/early December.

How Can I Join An Xbox One Anniversary 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. To learn more about the AJSA Xbox One Division, check out our Community Information thread.

All Xbox Live 'Weekly Event' & 'Game Night' parties are open and participants can join freely without restriction. Communication is done primarily in the Xbox Live Party system. In case of emergency, we may use the AJSA Discord. 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 activity and then exchange friend requests upon entry to the party. Most, if not all, 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 activity 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.
