Minimum Requirements to be an Anvil Commentator
Perks: Free water throughout the duration of your casting. During ad plugs, if you have a twitter, twitch, YouTube – plug yourself. We want to help you gain clout. It’s only fair since you’re helping the community! Venue waiver.
As a commentator: We expect our commentators to cast for 3 hours before initiating venue waivers. Commentators that commentate during the last 2 hours of the tournament will also receive venue reimbursement.
Long term: We expect this to eventually allow us to pay commentators. After all, you’re doing a job for the community. This will have to come at the consensus that the community is OK for us to raise venue so we can employ commentators as part-timers. Additional services come at additional costs.

Example scenario: “AF | Iota vs. AG | SciFire”
Commentator 1: And up next on AF Iota will be going head to head with AG SciFire. Both players have tremendous talent, with SciFire being part of the home team here at Anvil in Richmond.
Commentator 2: Iota of course, traditionally being the dominant player in this head-to-head. Iota is currently ranked #1 amongst players here at Anvil while also being the most consistent.
Commentator 1: That’s right [Commentator 2]. Some quick history shows Iota normally pulls out in Top 3 here at Anvil, with his worst tournament being at Anvil Smash #7 back in January.
Commentator 2: For sure. Although it looks like Iota may have to face Naytro if he wins this set. Traditionally Iota has his worst record against Naytro having a win rate of 33%.
