It's been a while since our last recruitment drive, but I'm always on the hunt for a few good slaves. We run a tight ship here at over.gg, with just a handful of people working to chronicle the tales of the burgeoning global professional Overwatch scene, but we need your help to do more and do it better.
The most time intensive task is still the live updating of the match ticker. If you watch a lot of live tournament streams you might consider helping us capture detailed results or maybe you are a VOD junkie and might be interested in keeping our match archives up to date?
The match ticker is not for the fainthearted. You don't get the kudos of being a writer, the hours are terrible and sometimes you barely even get to enjoy the game(s!) you are watching. You have to be a special kind of nerd for this work, but if you possess a love of the monotonous and a burning desire to painstakingly document the world this might be your calling.
There are essentially two of us working to cover all the pro matches happening globally, although we only manage cover a fraction of what is going on at any one time. I'd love to build a larger team to cover more (and sleep more!). Covering NA matches all night is detrimental to my health (not just because of the garbage plays), so feel free to come to my rescue. Obviously I'd love to hear from you if follow the European and Asian scenes (maybe even ANZ and South America if there is interest?). If you speak Korean or Chinese I will suck your dick.
I also think we can do a better job with our written coverage. We have lists upon lists of stories that could be covered and those are only the ones we know about. Whilst we have fabulous wordsmiths like Sideshow and Harsha churning out the Reddit bait on the regular, I think someone with an aptitude for writing short news stories in a timely fashion could add a lot to our current coverage. Again, bonus points if you can decipher the Asian scene.
Although I've tried to be specific, don't let me tell you what you can do. There are a plethora of other ways to contribute to the rise of the over.gg empire if you are creatively minded.
If you want to get involved you can pitch to me in this thread or PM me through the site or the over.gg Discord or even if you just want to heckle from your ivory tower and tell me what we can do better, I'm all ears.
Now for some unforced testimonials from our existing staff...
