We recognize the amazing talent in the Dungeon Defenders community. Volunteer moderators, guide makers, bug squashers -- the community is thriving with people who have established and maintained our unique identity. But, we realized we weren’t reaching out to those who have a knack for entertaining. That’s why we are putting together “The Casters Guild,” a group of individuals who want to give to the community by providing live entertainment via streaming on Twitch.

So how will this work? Guild Leader Victoryoftheppl explains below:

Interested individuals may submit an application. We will review the apps and select a small number of streamers to start. These individuals will receive a day and time to stream. After a trial period of a month, those who stuck it out will be inducted into The Casters Guild. Of course, by volunteering your time, there are some benefits such as:

  • Ability to be chosen to stream NEW content before it goes live
  • Receive custom graphics for your stream
  • Stream on the Official Trendy Entertainment Twitch channel, and more!

We’re hashing out more reward details, so if there’s something you’d like to receive for being a member of the guild, please let us know on the application!

If this is something you’re interested in, please read below.


Casters Guild Requirements:

  • Age 18 and older
  • Able to join the weekly meeting on Thursday at 5PM EST/10PM GMT
  • Have decent audio and video stream quality
  • Have the ability to plan ahead and set goals
  • Have the ability to stick to a schedule and be on time 
  • Have the ability to multi-task 
  • Have accrued 50+ hours of play time on Dungeon Defenders II
  • Must not promote hacking, exploits or pirating of Dungeon Defenders II or of any product
  • Able to be respectful toward other games and developers
  • Can't use copyrighted music while streaming Dungeon Defenders II (non-copyrighted music will be made available to play during streams)

The following are things we would like those applying to have, but will not be a determining factor in the end:

  • Webcam
  • Multiple Monitors or smartphone to view chat


TrendyEnt Channel Moderator Application Requirements:

  • Age 16 and older
  • Able to join the weekly meeting on Thursday at 5PM EST/10PM GMT
  • Have the ability to interact with others in a positive manner
  • Have the ability to stick to a schedule and be on time
  • Have the ability to multi-task and listen for cues from the streamer
  • Able to be respectful toward other games and developers

Application

To apply for The Casters Guild or TrendyEnt Channel Moderator, click here. The deadline is March 19th at 11:59PM EST.


F.A.Q:

Why the age requirement?

While we want as many people to join, we realize that those under the age of 18 have a lot more on their plate and schedule that sometimes just isn't flexible i.e. going to grade school, being liable to parents, and have certain bedtimes. 


I meet all the requirements EXCEPT for the meeting time requirement. Can I still apply?

Please still put in your application if you meet all requirements except for the meeting one. If we determine that the meeting is just not feasible for those applying, we will look at another day and time.


Why the game-time requirement?

We believe that having at least 50+ hours of game time means you have some knowledge of the game and the ability to answer questions while in stream and guide those who may need help. 


I don't think I can stream. Are there any other ways I can help?

Sure! We're looking for TrendyEnt Channel Moderators  so look above for the requirements and if you meet them, put in an application.


I've streamed a few times in the past, but I don't have that much experience with streaming. Can I still apply?

We definitely want people who will be dedicated to the stream team BUT understand that knowledge of how to stream could be a factor to why they aren't able to stream as much. Please still apply if that is the case. We'll be able to give you some pointers!


Will there be future ways to join the Casters Guild?

Yes! There definitely will be opportunities in the future to join the Casters Guild. We haven't decided on how exactly it'll work, but we'll probably do rolling applications or announce when we're accepting new applications for the guild.


Can I apply if I speak a different language?

At the moment, the Casters Guild will be English only because our current streaming community is English. But we're open to reaching out to different communities officially if the demand is there. We'd love to work with non-English streamers in some capacity.


Am I limited to streaming JUST DD content?

During your specific day and time to stream, you are limited to streaming DD content. Anything outside of that time slot is free for you to stream what you would like.


When will I receive an email if I've been accepted or not?

My goal is to send out emails Friday, Saturday, and Sunday after applications close on March 19th @ 11:59pm EST. A Tweet will be sent out from the official Trendy Entertainment Twitter when all emails have been sent.


*IF YOU HAVE ANY QUESTIONS, PLEASE POST THEM IN THIS THREAD. AS THEY ARE ANSWERED, WE WILL ADD THEM TO THE F.A.Q.! YOU CAN ALSO CONTACT VICTORYOFTHEPPL FOR MORE INFORMATION.*

I have over a years worth of streaming experience, I steam at least every other day. I own a high end system, a high end capture card, duel monitors, and a green screen. I can't wait to see if I got selected.
