    TL : DR: Try this


    Q. How do I verify my gamer tag?

    A. Settings > Edit Linked Accounts. Direct Link: http://www.leaguegaming.com/forums/index.php?account/external-accounts

    This video explains how to verify/link your xbox gamertag, to upload LG if you've changed your gamertag (once linked) and how to change your LG username (for free and automatically) to your xbox gamertag



    Q. Why do i need to verify my Xbox Gamertag?
    A. Because there was never a way to verify that the user on LG had anything to do with X Gamertag. Basically anyone could say they were anyone else or create a bunch of fake accounts. With this system, users will be who they say they are.

    Q. My Windows LiveID doesn't work

    A. If its not working for you, simply goto http://www.xbox.com and try logging in there, once you get logged in as the correct gamertag, make note of that Windows LiveID then try again on Leaguegaming. If the popup window doesn't ask you for a windows Live Login and password its because Microsoft's site auto logs you in. A quick fix is try again on a "Private Browser Tab", or try closing all browser tabs to kill that Windows LiveID Session.

    Q. Why is LG asking for said permissions and is it safe
    A. Yes, we are using a certified Microsoft service and doing so via the oauth protocol. Notice that the popup login window is not on leaguegaming but on Microsoft's web servers. This service is the same type of service you see on the web where you would see "Login to my facebook/twitter" account on non facebook/twitter sites. Oauth is a service where once the user logs in, Xbox sends us a token value that we can use to make calls on that user, example to read that users gamertag, game list or any other public info.

    Q. Will LG ever update my Xbox Account?

    A. No, its actually impossible to update your Xbox Account info, MS would never let a partner do that. We also do not have access to any sensitive non-public info like your CC info, name or address. Again MS would never , ever allow that out or access to said info. The "update" they are mentioning is if we were a game partner. For example if we had an xbox game or app, we could trigger on your account that you've unlocked X achievement or done "X" stats ect.

    Q. How do i find the Windows LiveID on my gamertag?
    A. http://www.windowsphone.com/en-ca/h...-windows-live-id-i-used-to-create-my-gamertag

    Q. How do i recover my Windows LiveID if i've forgotten its login and or password

    A. https://account.live.com/acsr

    If there are any other questions, please post them below

    Whenever I try to sign into xbox.com it's goes to a page that says "uh oh... That shouldn't of happened. It appears you've found a glitch in the system." Do you think this could be a reason why can't link my account?

    Yup i do,

    This is an error with xbox though. I assume you get the same error when you login on xbox.com?

    If so, you will have to go through xbox support to get this fixed.

    Apparently my profile might be corrupt now? I'm receiving Code: 8015D002. Its basically saying I need to buy a 32G flash drive to move my profile off my xbox and then put it back after switching off.
    I had to change my MS account info in order to verify my account with LG last night and when I turned my Xbox on today I'm getting this crap. Any suggestions Tris? I've already logged in to my Xbox Live account via CPU, so my password and username are legit.

    I'm running scouting lobbies tonight for St John's Ice Caps too. If I can hopefully get a quick response.

    I have no idea, those are all xbox issues. If you windows liveid is good, it should just simply work when you log in with it

    I figured out a way around it. I'm verified and good to go. Hopefully no one else has the same problem.

    Try in an incognito browser so your cookies and whatnot aren't in the equation. Post back results.

    Try logging into xbox.com first to make sure you have the correct windows live id

    I tried a bunch of things for about an hour, but nothing has worked. The first time I verified the account it worked fine. Outside of just changing my gamertag I can't recall making any changes to the account that would hinder it from working.

    If anyone has a problem with signing in and then getting a blank page it may be because someone already took your GT on the site. You'll probably have to ask Tris. Unlikely, but if people are running out of ideas this could be a solution.
