StarCraft 2 shoutcasters, assemble!

yes this is dog

If you’re seeking shoutcaster fame, then you may have your chance sooner than you think and you should enter this StarCraft 2 shoutcasters competition.We’re looking for two awesome guys or girls, or one guy and a girl or two guys, a girl and a pizza place. Just kidding on the last option, I don’t even know how I remember that reference.  

Anyway, the shoutcasters chosen will have the opportunity to shoutcast (commentate) next weekend’s, most amazing StarCraft 2 Invitational. They will be paid R1000 in cold, hard cash money each, for the day and be given the StarCraft 2: Heart of the Swarm game. Pretty bad ass deal if you ask me.

Here’s how to enter the competition:

Things you need to know!

Shoutcasters will be measured by the following:

  • Knowledge of the various races, builds and strategies.
  • Ability to explain to the audience what is happening in the game and what outcome it might have.
  • Ability to navigate around the map without confusing viewers.
  • Ability to speak clearly.
  • Knowledge about the players in the game, and ability to research them in order to give interesting information about the players and their careers.

Age restriction: 16 years

Transport: Gamers selected as the shoutcasters for the event should be able to get to the event on their own.

Deadline: Monday, 11 March

And in case you want to know how not to do it, check out Darryn’s hilarious attempt at shoutcasting.

I like bacon and games, and occasionally I say something coherent about it. I'm not old or cynical, and I'm not the Dork Knight. I AM SHE-RA! Wait, what?

    Would actually love to do something for this for “shits and giggles” but I can barely remember the units or the builds.

    HAHAHAHAHA! Go Darryn! This is the most exciting commentary that I have ever seen. There was this one time, when this guy was watching paint dry and he went on for hours, perhaps he mentored Darryn?
