Streaming of gameplay is a great way to get others to see the game and possibly wish to try it out. Also a great way for those who already play to see what others do or how the game can be or how an uber hunt looks etc.
So for streaming we are looking for game play streams.
That means actively hunting or mining or running a mission.
Additional point. Stream must be interesting and entertaining. Simply standing there grinding mob kills for hours is not interesting. Yes I understand that is the game but stretch your imagination. There are streamers who make their streams interesting.
Taking part in events or covering an event will also qualify as long as the event complies to the rules of CRP ‘23 and your stream qualifies in terms of your activity as host and time spent streaming
Craft runs will not count for this unless it’s a short part of the video. (no more than 10% of the stream time to be spent crafting
Fruit running not accepted
Streamers are those streaming on Twitch under the Entropia Universe category.
Streamers must be affiliate or reach affiliate during the time of CRP in order to qualify. Failing to do so before end of CRP may disqualify all your streams submitted.
This also means compliance to affiliate rules for your streams
Collaboration streams will be allowed with a max of 2 streamers able to score points. Additional points will be looked at for a collaboration stream such as chemistry and communication between the streamers.
Streams must have an average view rate above 10 people (We validate this through third-party tools which takes average viewers per channel overall).
Streams do not have to be family friendly as such, though streams that we consider to be counterproductive to positive community development will not qualify.
Streams that do not feature active gameplay (AFK streaming) will not qualify
Streams where the avatar stands around while the host uses the time to simply talk for an hour will not qualify
NI/AG Gameplay must be the main focus of the stream, for example, playing another game or other activity with EU in a small window in stream does not qualify
Streams must take place on NI/AG
Streams must enable the “Automatically save broadcasts for up to 7 days(60days for partners, Turbo and Prime Users)”. - Note that you will have to submit your link in time for us to be able to view it or it may be disqualified(Best to post immediately after the stream)
Streams must include the streamer talking about what they are doing and interacting with the viewers
Monetizing your viewers by giving money for watching will disqualify you from the CRP for the entire 2023 program
Tag your stream with #NextIsland and #CRP
Include a media link on your stream as supplied in the media kit
Dual streaming is not allowed. You are not fully engaging your viewers if you are spreading content over 2 platforms simultaneously.
Preference is given to streams on Twitch but it is not the only option.
Engaging content - 2
Overall impression - 2
Audio visual quality - 2
Scoring is per hr
For colab streams points will apply to both
We are looking into twitch drops and the option to develop and use this feature for future CRP events. So while you may feel streamers received no real revamp this year, exciting things are being worked on for you guys we are just running out of time to get it all organized and in place.
