2. Must follow all guidelines of the streaming platform you are using (we highly recommend using Twitch or YouTube, but other platforms are accepted). a. b.
3. The streamer is representing themselves, their club, their school, and the NACL and should conduct themselves appropriately.
a. Follow the guidelines of the site streaming on as a minimum, but avoid controversy and saying/doing things that could harm reputations of those affiliated with the streamer and the streamer themselves.
b. The NACL is entirely player-centric, so this is an opportunity to put yourself out there and receive support for quality and appropriate work.
Streaming for NACL
1. The NACL will provide an overlay for the stream which may be used
a. This overlay will contain:
i. The NACL logo and social media information
ii. May contain some of the NACL’s sponsors’ logos
1. These sponsor logos do not mean that you, the streamer, are sponsored by them.
iii. Graphics and placement adjusted for the registered game
iv. The school/Esports club’s logo
1. This logo, along with any additional requests for graphics, should be sent to
b. If the streamer already has overlays they use for their own regular streams, a compromise can be made—contact so this discussion can be had.
2. Must stream all gameplay of the tournament on a 3-minute delay.
a. This is to help prevent ghosting from other players.
3. When the team is eliminated from the tournament and the designated streamer stops streaming, they must host/raid the NACL’s official stream: a. b.
4. Note: there is no delay on the NACL official stream (besides the one caused by the spectator client), meaning there is the potential to be ghosted but on that delay.
a. If a player is caught ghosting they will be kicked out of the tournament.
b. If there is belief a team is ghosting you please immediately contact an NACL admin through Discord.
