[ Edited ]
Community Manager (retired)

Hello everyone!

 

We have some good news for all of you interested in helping your fellow gamer on AHQ: the Champions are here. Users that have proven to be among the most helpful on AHQ will earn the Champion rank, to recognize their efforts and displayed under their username, to showcase to our community that they are a trusted helping hand.

 

On top of that, users will receive the following advantages:

- The possibility to tag another user in their reply, like so: @EA_Francois 

- The ability to add a signature to their posts, to add their flair to any thread they post in.

- The access to post in a social area on Answer HQ, the Barracks, nested under the Academy. Everyone can see what's said in the Barracks, but only Champions and Heroes can participate!

 

Finally, Champions will receive a small token of our gratitude.

Frequently Asked Questions

 

 

How do I become a Champion?

 

Answer HQ users become eligible for Champion selection when they reach 100 posts on Answer HQ, and have been active with us on the community for over a month. Members of our Hero Program or EA Staff can then select who should be named a Champion, through co-optation. The purpose of the Champion program is to enable helpful members of our community in their endeavors to assist other players, and reward their efforts.

 

 

How can I increase my chances of becoming a Champion?

 

The first thing you need to keep in mind is that Heroes and EA Staff are the ones deciding who's worthy to be a Champion.

The second thing you need to keep in mind is that Heroes were once new users on Answer HQ too, and probably have very valuable insight into how to improve and hone your helping skills. A barrage of generic cookie-cutter responses or troubleshooting steps that may not be applicable to a user's situation will most likely be a lot less useful to you or anyone than an answer that is well-researched and to the point. :smileyhappy:

Third, if you have a question for a Hero or if you think you could benefit from some help, it's ok to ask. Most Heroes will repond favorably to a kind request for feedback, and are willing to offer tips and advice.

For more insight into how to improve the quality of your help and ultimately your chances to become a Champion, take a look at Crinrict's Golden Rules of Helping.

 

 

What do Champions get?

 

Champions will receive the following advantages:

- The possibility to tag another user in their reply, like so: @EA_Francois  (type @ and then add the user's name)

- The ability to add a signature to their posts, to add their flair to any thread they post in.

- The access to post in a social area on Answer HQ, the Barracks. Everyone can see what's said in the Barracks, but only Champions and Heroes can participate!

 

Finally, Champions receive a small token of our gratitude.

 

 

So, what's the difference between Heroes and Champions?

 

The Heroes are users that have shown an outstanding level of engagement with our community. By consistently sharing their knowledge and experience to help their fellow gamers and by displaying an attitude in line with Answer HQ’s values, they have earned their place among the Heroes.

 

Champions are users who have demonstrated their will to help and are recognized by our Heroes as having the potential to become Heroes themselves. They are typically still relatively new to AHQ and have a thing or two to learn still. Becoming a Champion is the first step to becoming a Hero!

 

 

Alright, so what's the catch?

 

There's no catch! We want to reward users for their efforts, and make their posts more visible. We do however expect our Champions to exhibit a common level of courtesy on Answer HQ and other EA platforms, towards all members of EA communities. Failure to comply could lead to removal from the program.

 

 

This user's stats are lower than mine yet they are a Champion and I'm not, how is that?

 

Since Champions are co-opted in by our Heroes, it is entirely possible that someone with a lower postcount or who has arrived more recently be a Champion. If you are wondering why that user has been chosen, ask yourself how you could improve the quality of your posts. It may be worth checking out the Academy!
