The time has come, StarCraft II enthusiasts and all-around social butterflies, to launch our community MVP program! We’re looking for a few good men and women who not only have a fond place in their hearts for StarCraft, but who also enjoy discussing gameplay and story with the rest of the community. The ideal candidates should be well-versed in the art of constructively approaching forum posts and blog comments, sharing insight and information whenever possible. We’re looking to fill the MVP slots with a broad spectrum of personalities and people with varying degrees of play experience and gameplay focus.
MVPs are not employees of Blizzard Entertainment. Instead, they're recognized members of the community with strong social skills and understanding of gameplay. Think you have what it takes? No applications are necessary. Simply take to the forums if you’re interested and show us that you're a dedicated StarCraft II player with the drive to help make this community the best it can be.
To learn more about the program, peruse the legendary MVP FAQ below.
Your life might just depend on it.
MVP Program Frequently Asked Questions
Q. Why was the MVP program created?
A. In many cases, the answers to questions posed on the forums have already been provided by Blizzard Entertainment employees, or are common knowledge for many in the community. However, answers by fellow players often go unnoticed while the original poster seeks a more official response.
In order to address this, we have instituted a program that has shown great success on other Blizzard forums: the MVP (Most Valuable Poster) program. Unique profile portraits and a distinctive posting text color is given to identified MVPs who answer other players' questions consistently and accurately. It lends a note of credibility to what they post; it allows players seeking answers to take what they say at face value, and frees up Blizzard representatives so that they can focus on their primary responsibilities.
Q. What does an MVP do?
A. MVPs promote constructive posting wherever they can. They contribute to the community and encourage polite discussion throughout the forums. When you see an MVP post, listen to what they have to say -- they were also chosen for their knowledge of the game.
Q. Why didn't you select _____, someone who always gives great constructive feedback on X subject?
A. Please understand that MVPs are not zerg, terran, protoss, league, or community representatives in that sense; they are not chosen for their ability to criticize game mechanics and give feedback. They certainly can do this (and many do). The members of the Community Team are still your vehicles through which you should submit feedback by posting on the forums and in blog comments. We do not have a race or ladder representative system in place at this time and would prefer to hear all players' feedback instead of a select few.
Q. Why aren't the MVPs in the Diamond league?
A. You do not have to be a competitive multiplayer expert to answer the majority of questions on the forums clearly and accurately. You do not need a specific number of Achievement points to be able to direct players to the appropriate page on the website for their question, or to link to an answer already given by Blizzard. MVPs are chosen primarily for their demonstrated communication skills and helpfulness toward the community, and while some of them may also be top-ranked players in one or more aspects of the game, it's not a requirement.
Q. How can I become an MVP?
A. Keep posting constructively, answering questions about the game, and encouraging discussion throughout the forums -- we'll take notice. Be sure to follow the Code of Conduct as well!
