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:
- Download these replays: Akilon Flats and Cloud Kingdom (you need the StarCraft 2: Wings of Liberty game client in order to use them).
- Pick one of them and make a video (demo) of you shoutcasting it.
- Upload it to Youtube as an unlisted video.
- Email the link to firstname.lastname@example.org
