Community Streaming Guidelines

Share this article:

We welcome community streamers in all languages to broadcast our Dota 2 events using DOTA TV. It is important for us that the Dota 2 community grows and has access to top level Dota 2 content.

We want to encourage community streamers to be creative and produce exciting content for their fans, at the same time, we would like to emphasise that in-line with the Dota 2 community stream policy the community streams should be strictly non-commercial.

In addition, the following streaming requirements must be followed by all community streamers of the Dota 2 events produced by ESL. Those requirements are created to enable long-term growth and sustainability of us and our official partners while still enabling streamers and community personalities to cover the event:

  • The community stream’s twitch channel must include an Info Box (assets can be found here) that links to the main broadcast.
  • The community stream title has to follow a standardised format of “Full Name of Event - Team A vs. Team B”, for example, “ESL One Malaysia 2022 - Team A vs. Team B”.
  • Community streamers must not have professional studio level broadcast features such as a live producer, balancing audio or playing graphics. In addition, a physical set with several talents is not allowed. This list is not exhaustive, if in doubt please contact us for a confirmation.
  • Create a positive and inclusive environment and ensure proper moderation of your chat.
