HOW DO I JOIN SCRIM NIGHTS…

… AS TALENT?

(This includes analysts, hosts, play by play and color casters)

Completely new? Start with our Caster Workshop!

  • Submit your first VOD for review.
    In order to be considered for Scrim Nights, you must have been talent in at least one other production. Note that the match you’re talent on needs to have been for the same game as well; if you’re applying for BGG’s Overwatch Scrim Nights, the VOD you’re applying with must be you producing an Overwatch match.
    Also note that you need to have a VOD for the talent position you’re applying for. If you want to be a play by play caster for Scrim Nights, you’ll need a VOD of you doing play by play elsewhere. Same goes for all other talent positions.
  • Submit the VOD to BroadcastGG.
    Submit the VOD to the #looking-for-feedback channel for the appropriate game on Broadcast GG’s Discord. You’ll get feedback on what to work on, then be told to post another VOD when you’ve worked on what you need to tweak.
  • Produce a second VOD
    Work on whatever feedback that was supplied to you from the first VOD and submit the second VOD the same way you did the first.
  • Get it approved.
    Once you are talent for the second VOD, it’ll either be denied – where you’ll be supplied more feedback and told to re-submit – or approved, where you’ll get the Scrim Nights role on Discord. This means you’re in and approved for Scrim Nights and eligible to sign up for Scrim slots.
  • Post your schedule in #talent-schedule.
    Every Sunday, the lead coordinator of Scrim Nights will prompt everyone with the role to post their schedules in #talent-schedules. Give your availability and wait to be assigned a spot. The full schedule for each week is in the #scrim-nights-schedule of your chosen game.

… AS A COMPETITOR?

  • Join the Discord.
    On the #set-role channel, elect the “Competitor” role. This will give you access to a special channel for our Scrim Nights teams.. Note that only your captain needs the role.
  • Post your scrim schedule for the week.
    Post when your team is available for scrims in the #competitor-schedule channel for your respective game when pinged by the Scrim Nights Broadcast Coordinator
  • Make sure you have an  opponent when you’re scheduled.
    Once you have a scrim for Scrim Night scheduled, you ensure you have an opponent. Competitors are always required to find an opponent for Scrim Nights. Broadcast.gg does not supply one for you. Make sure the opponent is OK being streamed on a three minute delay.
  • Fill out the Team Sheet
    Once you’ve done all of the above and are scheduled for a scrim to be broadcasted, you’ll need to fill out your team sheet supplied to you by the Scrim Night Coordinator. The team sheet includes your team’s name, players, position, favorite heroes, pronouns, and other important information for the broadcast team to know.
