With the increase in mutliplayer, co-operative and online games, websites offering ‘looking for group’ or LFG services have exploded. Not one to be left behind, Blizzard has added an Overwatch LFG to the official forums.
An LFG is a place where players looking for others with specific games or goals in mind can do so. An Overwatch LFG lets players find unique groups of players and classes.
So far, the posts on the Overwatch LFG are players seeking to rank up in competitive or players looking for DPS or healers and the like.
There are already plenty of unofficial and 3rd party Overwatch LFG sites available to players. The launch of an Overwatch LFG on the official forums will ensure a smooth, hassle-free experience.
Blizzard is keen to ensure the official Overwatch LFG is a friendly and helpful place. In that vein, it has created an extensive list of rules and guidelines for LFG users.
