New Events and Event/Azure Services Updates:
Movie Night - This event is being organized and tested on Saturdays using official Rabb.it streaming services to provide group watching as a fun event for members to join in on via our discord server and is free to attend and see weekly hosted films together with FC mates.
24-Man Fridays: Ivalice Trilogy: The event was changed to 24-Man Fridays: Orbonne Monastery last week due to the timing of the Final Fantasy XIV: Fanfest Tokyo Keynote stream. The event will return to hosting the full Ivalice raid trilogy again from 3/29 onward.
FFXIV:Fanfest Tokyo Stream Watch Party: The event has now officially ended, however the Fanfest discord channel will be left unlocked for discussions for some time. The channel will eventually be locked until the 2020/2021 FFXIV: Fanfest tour.
Letter from the Producer Live Watch Party: Will be included as a new channel on our discord along with another for watching Streams of anything together as a part of a new Streaming section which will also include the present channel for Live Streamers to post their channel information or share when they're going live. These addtions will take place amid part of a larger discord update for Azure Infinitum.
April 2019 Large Discord Update: Major changes are coming to the Azure Infinitum Discord server which will include a multitude of new channels for voice and text. The new additions will be organized in categories that members can hide or open depending on their interests, with better organization of text and voice channels that will be listed together instead of 2 separate lists of voice channels and text channels. These preparations will provide a more extensive use of the Azure Infinitum Discord as well as begin to build the foundations for the coming Azure Infinitum Network in 2020. Expect the update in early April.
Azure Optional Services:
-Our Azure Infinitum Face Book Group is always welcoming more members who would like to connect with our community using their Facebook at: https://www.facebook.com/groups/azureinfinitum/ If you put in an app, please make sure to let us know who you are in the FC, and even better, feel free to add your input to our "Who's Who" thread so we know who on Facebook are our members in-game.
-Discord is an insanely useful tool for us, and we'd like to make sure everyone enjoys it. Don't forget to read our discord rules at our Rule Page: http://azureinfinitum.com/pages/rules Remember that your screenshots, jokes, lore stories, favorite music or videos you share, and more, are all eventually buried on discord. Our site: azureinfinitum.com could use a lot more love, posts, threads, and more- and so can our Facebook group. We like seeing your screenshots and more, don't let them dissapear on discord, but by all means continue to share with us where you feel most comfortable.
-In-game we offer an Azure Industry LS for crafters and gatherers from novice to pro, for advice, help, trades, services, and more. Whether you're just getting interested in either crafting or gathering, or want to be connected to Azure Infinitum's large inner-crafting community, just let a Lt. or higher know you're interested in the LS.
-Also in-game is our Azure Hunters LS for ranked Hunts. We need more people calling out/marking Hunts and our Hunters would always appreciate more comrades to join them on Hunts and Hunt Circuits- which seems to be a mostly undiscovered tool of gaining tons of Centurio seals, tomes, gil, and more.
Please remember if anyone has any questions about our events, services, or management of the free company to please approach your Azure Council members or myself anytime with a private message on our discord, an in-game tell, or anywhere you can find us. We work to ensure there is no confusion among our population and that everyone stays on the same page so we can all enjoy the community and see it remains effectively managed.
Reports can also be made to any Scout or higher rank who can make sure the council or myself is informed.
