Starting today, you might notice a new mission available to you on the Missions Page. To make gaming fun, safe and accessible for everyone, we are introducing another way to reward Xbox Ambassadors, this time for using the LFG feature on consoles and PC.
We understand that members of the Xbox Ambassador community want to help in different ways. One of the most requested additions from the community is to incorporate more game-focused activities, and so as of today you’ll be able to self-report any LFG groups you join or create, and then complete!
An example of a “complete” self–reported LFG could mean you help finish a raid in Destiny 2, go on a short expedition in Sea of Thieves, or even offer someone help in a single-player game like Ori and the Will of the Wisps. Once you’ve finished your LFG, head back to the Missions Page and complete the one-click activity to unlock your XP reward.
For now, the LFG Mission will run as a trial. This means that we’ll be looking for your feedback as we wrap up the first iteration of the mission. Much like the GG and Friending Missions, our goal is to make your participation in the Xbox Ambassador program as natural as possible, so we’ll be working towards automating this LFG activity.
There are several ways you can use Looking for Group to find players and clubs on Xbox Live with the same goals and interests as yours.
Sometimes jumping into games with new people can be a bit nerve wracking,. If you’re new to the LFG feature these tips will help you make the most out of LFG and make new friends.
No gamer is the same; we all have our interests, personality traits, and style of gameplay. By using the Tagging feature with LFGs, you can let other gamers know what type of group you’re looking for. Try starting out using the “Xbox Ambassador” tag along with a few extra tags such as “No Swearing”, “Be Chill”, and “All Skill Levels”.
The LFG feature lets you create and join groups that best fit your playstyle, so try experimenting with tags that best suit who you are.
While tagging can help restrict the types of people you play with, there may be an instance where someone you play with is toxic. There’s nothing wrong with ending an LFG early if you feel that the person in your group isn’t what you were looking for.
If you’re not already, be sure to use all the features available to you through Xbox Family Settings. If a player is harassing you, you can mute or block the person. If that player is bullying you or displaying bad online behavior, you can also file a complaint.
We never want to put you in a situation where you feel uncomfortable, so be sure to use these features when it feels right to you.
Understanding where another gamer is coming from can make your LFG even more fun and impactful. Take the time to offer help when it is asked for while also providing some positive feedback when other players do well.
If someone is frustrated, try offering alternative solutions or even go as far as offering to try something else.
The LFG feature is an awesome tool to connect gamers from all over to meet a common goal. We hope you find this activity as exciting as we do. We’re excited to see what the Ambassador Community can bring to LFGs!
