Caster Call to ActionBlizzard Entertainment|May 23, 2019

The 2019 WCS Challenger Season 2 Open Qualifiers are almost here, and we are now taking applications for Community Casters looking to cover the event.

We have received an incredibly positive response to our Community Casting calls in 2019, with more applications and interest than ever before. We love seeing this level of passion from StarCraft fans, and we are glad the Community Caster program has helped provide opportunities for new and aspiring casters to try their hand covering official WCS events.

However, we have taken into account the feedback provided after the first 2019 Open Qualifiers for WCS Challenger, from both admins and participating players. Our number-one priority is ensuring the tournament runs smoothly, therefore providing the best possible experience for players and viewers. As a result, we may be scaling back the number of applications we accept for this event.
