Hey guys, Ariel here! As you may have heard, OKLCS/GetRECt, Oklahoma League of Legends’ competitive scene, has achieved Twitch Affiliate status at our Twitch channel, https://www.twitch.tv/getrectok. By being granted this status, our channel gets a few cool perks:
- Global emotes that can be used anywhere on Twitch
- A subscriber button, which directly benefits the GetRECt organization
- Able to receive bit cheers
- Sell games on the channel for additional monetization
Affiliate status is a step toward Partnership, which grants us full streaming and protection rights provided by Twitch. Each subscriber is worth a point: after a certain amount of subscribers, we get access to more custom global emotes that our subscribers can use across Twitch!
We are using this awesome opportunity as a tool to build the local League of Legends community and provide entertaining content. Our goal is to get the community engaged in our competitive scene, honor some outstanding players and just enjoy the game together!
If you’ve never figured out Twitch, I got you. You must have a Twitch.tv account to subscribe to a channel. To sign up, visit Twitch.tv and click “Sign Up” at the top right, where you will have the option to create an account or link your Facebook account.
There are two ways to subscribe to the channel:
- Visit https://www.twitch.tv/getrectok and click the “Subscribe” button at the top right! Enter in your payment method, and it’s as easy as that. Your subscription will automatically renew each month until you cancel the subscription.
Twitch Prime Subscriber:
- This is my personal favorite option. You get a FREE Twitch subscription when you link your Amazon Prime and Twitch accounts!
- Head over to https://twitch.amazon.com/prime
- Scroll down to the link where it says “Already an Amazon Prime member? Connect your Twitch account.” It’ll ask you to sign in to Amazon (if you’re not already)
- After you’ve connected the two accounts, visit https://www.twitch.tv/getrectok and click the “Subscribe” button at the top right!
- In addition to getting a FREE subscription to a Twitch channel, Twitch Prime users also get free video game codes and in-game loot each month!
- This is the BEST option for anyone who already uses Amazon Prime – free Twitch sub AND free video games! The only downside is you will have to re-subscribe to the channel each month, but it’s as easy as clicking the “Subscribe” button at the top right of our Twitch channel.
Pretty simple, right? As a channel, we are also providing our own subscriber benefits outside of what Twitch gives a subscriber, such as exclusive subscriber monthly giveaways, free entry into GetRECt standalone events such as 2v2 and 5v5 tournaments, and access to an exclusive voice and text channel on the OKLCS Discord! Even more benefits will roll out later as we continue to grow the channel.
We appreciate your support and hope you will choose to help grow our local community!
