TappedOut's Official Twitch Community!

TappedOut forum

Posted on July 25, 2017, 10:45 a.m. by abby315

Whether you like to stream your FNM, EDH playgroup, or MTGO/Cockatrice playtesting, we set up a Community on Twitch for you to connect with other TappedOut users!

Twitch Communities function like a hub, where any streamer can stream to the Community as long as they follow the rules.

These are the rules:

1) Only stream Trading Card Game related content, including MTGO and games streamed from your LGS.

2) Please no stereotyping, even if it's a joke. We reserve the right to temporarily or permanently remove streamers from the community if this is an issue.

3) Adhere to Twitch's ToS, especially their section on Prohibited Conduct.

So, how do you get started?

  1. Set up your Twitch stream! Here's some help with that.

  2. Go to your Dashboard, under the top-right drop down menu.

  3. Search for TappedOut in the Community bar, under "Stream Information," and select!

  4. Start streaming and have fun!

5. Follow the community so you get notifications when your fellow TappedOuters stream :)

Any questions? I can answer them in the comments. :)

Come Stream with us!

Is Cockatrice allowed to be streamed? I know the axed XMage a while ago.

TMBRLZ: as with a lot of Wizards legality questions, that's kind of hard to answer. Like, I can tell you other people stream cockatrice games fairly often and haven't gotten any legal notice recently, as far as I can tell. I can tell you we consider it TCG content, so it's an okay program to stream in the community. But when and how wizards defends their copyright is somewhat like lightning striking. :(

It's certainly 100% safer to stream on MTGO and we'd prefer it. But I also think it's highly unlikely you'll run into issues streaming Cockatrice. Wizards' main issue with that and Xmage generally comes from them making money off of the program, and streaming doesn't fall into that. Just don't do a Cockatrice fundraiser stream. :P

But please, if anyone has more info on Wizards' stance or copyright law in this area, share it! I'm not a copyright lawyer. Only a google user.
