Applying For a Staff Role



The GameReplays Rise of the Witch-king section is currently looking for new staff members!

Community contribution is an essential part of keeping GameReplays.org and its subsequent sections active, fun, and full of regular content. So if you think you could fulfill any one of these roles then drop us a line and let us know.

The General Perks that come with all positions


When you're a staff member at any level, the same basic perks are available to you. These include a larger inbox and access to the staff areas of GameReplays.org. The main benefit is that you get a much bigger sense of responsibility than you do by just being a member, and it is a good chance to earn respect from regular members and staff members alike. It is even something you can put on your CV or resume!

Discussion Moderator

Discussion moderator is a great position for those who love the forum experience and like to promote healthy discussions! Moderators are expected to remain active in the forums, guide discussions, and report inappropriate content. Those who think they have what it takes to keep the house in order should PM Locutus with an application.


Artist

Artists help prepare graphical images for portal posts and articles, usually by manipulating existing material or screenshots taken from the game. Sometimes artists will be asked to make signatures for members. You will need to have image manipulation software available to you and know how to use it. If you are interested, send a RotWK-related 900 x 285 image.

What is required from you? The production of images required for one portal article per month.


Commentator

Commentators are probably the most well known members of the Rise of the Witch-King staff. They showcase the best matches by making commentaries, or VoDs of our replays and some have even broadcast live events.

Since Commentators cover actual matches, you need to have some knowledge of Rise of the Witch-king, though you don't have to be an expert at the game. The most important thing is that you are entertaining and are willing to put in some work behind the scenes, as it often takes time recording the commentaries. Commentators all have different styles, so don't be afraid to apply if your style is different than everyone else's. However it is important that you enjoy making commentaries, as this will show in the videos you produce and will help entertain the community and keep them watching your videos. Applicants should send a sample video commentary.

What is required from you? Two video commentaries per month.

Modder

Modders are a special kind of staff who would otherwise be tasked with the development of their section's game (in this case patch development). Ordinarily it would be ideal that applicants know a good deal of modding to be fit for this role. Applicants would need to be willing to learn how to make use of GitLab as all Rise of the Witch-king development is done there.

What is required from you? General patch development and participation in developmental discussions.


Referee

Tournament Referee help run tournament events hosted by GameReplays. They help with conceiving, organizing, hosting and presenting the results of tournaments. If you have a helpful nature and enjoy tournaments, this is definitely the right staff position for you! You must make sure that you can make at least one "free" weekend a month to host a tournament, as they can often go on for hours at a time.

Replay Reviewer

Replay reviewers are a key part of this website. Replays are posted for the enjoyment of others, sharing strategies with others, and helping out others with certain strategical problems. It is the RRs job to review any and most ideally all replays posted on this site. Good writing skills are ideal.


What is required from you? Your help in holding one tournament event per month.

Strategy Specialist


IPB Image
IPB Image

Strategy Specialists are some of the most knowledgeable players of a game, they help the community by writing strategy tips and guides for the portal as well as giving members advice in the strategy forums or replay section. To be a Strategy Specialist you don't need to know all of the factions like the back of your hand. Most of our previous Strategy Specialists are experts at only one faction, but their expertise in that faction is second to none. You don't need to be the best writer in the world, as senior staff members will easily be able to help you with writing your tips, although having a decent knowledge of the English language is essential.

What is required from you? One strategy tip or guide per month.


Writer

IPB Image

As a writer, you will be one of the main contributors to the Rise of the Witch-king portal. You will be in charge of writing anything that you want, as long as it is RotWK related; whether it be an insightful blog, amusing or interesting article or any game- or patch-related news. If you've enjoyed reading some of the monthly articles written by Battle For Middle-Earth Writers and want to give writing a try, then this is the role for you!

Obviously, you need to have good knowledge of the English language, although you don't need to have perfect grammar, as this is something we aim to improve during your time on staff. However, to apply you must be able to commit yourself to writing at least one blog/article/news post per month. Applicants should send a sample article or newspost!

What is required from you? One written article per month.

Most of them are uninteresting. Bland, one dimensional play. Unless of course trolling is what they want. When v7 is released, we'll get to see some interesting reviews.

Not so fast. You've been a good boy lately 😁, but you need to prove yourself further.
