Your server's existing community should already be fairly active and excited to be a part of your server! We don't offer verification for servers that haven't gotten off the ground yet, or are waiting for a possible verification before "launching" their server.
Keep in mind that all applications are reviewed on a case-by-case basis, and what's listed below does not immediately guarantee server verification.
Game Publishers or Studios:
Your server will need to be ran by either the development team, or publisher behind the game in question. In addition, your game will need to be live and playable by anyone who wants to get their hands on it!
Servers that are not owned by the game publisher or studio itself, but instead are community-led, don't qualify for Server Verification. You may want to check out our Discord Partner program instead!
In addition, we do not accept servers based around mods for a pre-existing game, whether it's for expanding the content of the base game, a total conversion mod, or a game made using the assets of a pre-existing game. You'll also need own the IP the game is about, meaning fan games of existing franchises won't count.
Your server must be owned by the esports organization itself. Fan-run servers for particular teams won't qualify. The content of the server itself must be related to the organization or team.
If applying as a team, you'll need some history of participating in a major offline tournament or LAN under your belt. If you participated an online qualifier for a tournament that would have ended in an offline LAN event, that works for us too!
Your server must be owned by the music artist, or by a record label. The server itself will need to be primarily focused on the music in question, rather than a server ran by an artist that's gaming-focused.
If you're applying as an individual music artist, you'll need to be verified on Spotify and have the shiny blue badge on your Spotify page!
If your music is primarily uploaded to a different platform, but has no Spotify presence, we won't be able to verify it at this moment in time.
When reviewing your application, it should easy to see that that your content has a healthy, strong amount of monthly listeners on your Spotify page, and you're still regularly releasing new songs, EPs and albums.
