What do we look for in HypeSquad members?
- For HypeSquad Online Members, you can simply sign up in-app! Head on into User Settings > HypeSquad, then take the 5 question aptitude test.
- For HypeSquad Event Attendees, we look for Discord fans that attend gaming events regularly and would love to spread the Discord hype at their next gaming event. All you need to do is send in a super hype video of yourself answering some questions (include yourself) and you’re in!
- For HypeSquad Event Coordinators, we look for all different types of events: offline LAN events, University gaming clubs, tournaments, gaming conventions and LAN centers. If you’re someone who coordinates any of these type of events, apply!
Remember for event coordinators, any event that is submitted must exist outside of Discord and must not take place on the internet! Go out there and hang out with other awesome gamers.
How long does it take to receive a response after I apply?
Applications can take up to 48 hours to be reviewed. If you have any questions about your application, you can reach out by heading over to dis.gd/contact, choosing "Community Programs" and then selecting "HypeSquad!"

To go into more depth about this, we have made an awesome article that will help you with this! Check it out at our HypeSquad Events Application Requirements page!
How old do I have to be to be a part of the HypeSquad?
For Online members, as long as you're old enough to use Discord, you can join the HypeSquad Online program!
If you're looking to take your Hype levels a step further and become an Event Attendee or Event Coordinator, you'll need to be at least 16 years old.
What kinds of events do I need to attend in order to qualify for HypeSquad Attendee?
You can attend any gaming-related convention, LAN or tournament in your local areas, they don’t need to be events that Discord is at. This means you should go out and mingle with other cool gamers and have some fun. If you do get accepted, then you’ll be able to show off some swag the next time you attend a gaming event.
How do I upgrade from an online member to an Event Coordinator or an Event Attendee?
Go ahead and fill out a new application on discordapp.com/hypesquad and select attendee or coordinator!
I heard a rumor that HypeSquad gets Nitro perks, is this true?
Sadly there are no nitro perks if you are accepted into HypeSquad. You can check out all the details here: HypeSquad Tiers
I can’t find my HypeSquad Badge, where is it located?!?
You can check it out by clicking on your name in the Server Members list, then tapping "View Profile" when hovering over your avatar. Your snazzy new HypeSquad badge will be right under your username.
I got into HypeSquad, but I’m not in the super awesome server, did I do something wrong?
Access to the new HypeSquad Events server is now limited to HypeSquad Event Attendees and Event Coordinators only. If you would like access to the server, you will need to reapply at discordapp.com/hypesquad and select Attendee or Coordinator.
I accidentally left the HypeSquad Server, can I request to get back in?
If you leave the server, you lose all the HypeSquad perks tied to your account. If you have more questions, you can reach out by heading over to dis.gd/contact, choosing "Community Programs" and then selecting "HypeSquad!"
How long does it take to get my HypeSquad swag?
Once accepted, attendees can expect swag packs to arrive 1-2 weeks after they submit the order from the link in their email. If you are a host, it will depend on when your actual event is. We have created a process within the server to make this transition seamless, but you should expect your swag within 4-5 weeks before your event.
I lost my badge and I don’t know what happened, where do I go?
Go ahead and reach out by heading over to dis.gd/contact, choosing "Community Programs" and then selecting "HypeSquad!" From there, we can figure out what might have happened and get that patched up for you.
If I’m removed from HypeSquad, can I be reinstated?
If you are removed from HypeSquad, please reach out at dis.gd/contact so we can take a look at what happened. There are no guarantees you will be reinstated into the program.
Can I transfer my HypeSquad Badge to another account?
Unfortunately we do not transfer the HypeSquad badge to another account. You will need to reapply for the account you wish to have the badge attached to it.
I need to report a HypeSquad member for breaking Terms of Service or Community Guidelines, how do I do this?
