Well, we’re a couple days late this month, but we have a good excuse! We’ve been holding off on publishing this 30-day update to ensure we were fully prepared to share some great news. The Xbox Ambassadors team has been working hard to implement a fix that many Ambassadors have been asking for, and we’ve also lined up some new automated activities for Xbox Ambassadors. Read below for the full details!
We’ll admit, it’s been a long time coming. “What has?” you ask. The bug fix to Forums XP seamlessly tracking to Xbox Ambassador profiles. We’re excited to share that we have implemented a solution to this bug that should improve the experience for Ambassadors.
We’d like to thank all of you for not only your patience, but for your persistent feedback in the matter. Should you encounter any issues in the future, be sure to let us know!
Also, if you have not yet completed the Forums Starter Mission, do it now! Reminder: this mission must be completed to collect XP in the Forums and obtain an Xbox Ambassador Forums badge.
The past few months we’ve been hinting at newly automated activities derived from some of the self-reported missions we’ve been running the last year or so. Good news, Ambassadors, they’re coming soon!
In the next 30 days, we’ll be standing up three new two-week missions for Ambassadors to try out the activity experiences as well as the functionalities. After the missions have completed, we will take all feedback into consideration with the goal of launching the missions as full-time Ambassador activities.
The upcoming activities are making a friend on Xbox Live, gaining a follower on Xbox Live, and messaging “GG” on Xbox Live. Not only will you automatically be rewarded XP for these events, they’re also super simple to compete because they’re fully baked into your everyday Xbox Live experience.
We are happy to serve Ambassadors new activities that are automated, and also thrilled to see the positive impact these activities will have on your fellow gamers and the Xbox Live community. Let’s continue making Xbox fun for everyone!
We hope you’ll join us for the next Playdate. It’s a chance to not only play with your fellow Ambassadors, but with the Community Managers too!
Sunday, August 25th from 9:30 AM – 12:30 PM PT we’ll be hosting a Gears of War 4 – Horde Mode 3.0 Playdate to be streamed on the Xbox Ambassadors Mixer channel. We’ll team up to play games, have fun and even give away three 1-month Game Pass subscriptions to those joining in on the Gears of War 4 action.
