Evo Panel #1: Feed the Stream Monsters: A Guide to Broadcast Fighting Games

By on July 15, 2011 at 8:02 am

Our inaugural set of panels is a who’s who’s list of heavy hitters in the fighting game scene.  I’m happy to announce our first of eight panels that will run throughout the weekend.  Priority seating for these panels will go to registered Evo attendees with a badge, so register today!

Here is a summary of our first panel, which will be held Friday, July 29th at 10:00 AM.

Through a series of personal anecdotes and examples from the past 3 years of fighting game broadcasts, Feed the Stream Monsters chronicles the evolution of their online streams as they went from cramped apartments and tiny garages to the grand stage of EVO. Join “Mr Jared” Rea (iPlayWinner), AJ “Potatohead” Papa (Level|Up Series) and Louis Vigil (Offcast) as they educate any potential tournament broadcaster on how to build a successful web stream while bolstering your local community.

Discover how they got started in the world of fighting game streams, scaled their operations to handle the sheer magnitude of major events and utilized the power of their local communities to expand and improve upon their efforts for the benefit of all. Find out what makes their operations successful with valuable best practices, tips and golden rules as the panelists discuss their greatest successes along with their biggest mistakes and everything they’ve learned along the way.

BONUS: Arrive to our panel within the first 10 minutes and receive a special raffle ticket for a MadCatz Tournament Edition FightStick to be raffled off at the end of the panel. Special thanks to MarkMan for making this possible!
