Discord’s HypeSquad is their street team of super fans that go around representing and telling people about Discord. In this blog, we’ll talk about some of the perks and duties of the HypeSquad, so you can decide whether it’s something you want to be involved with.
To start with, you’ll fill out an application that will determine your level of hype. It will take up to 48 hours to be reviewed. Then you’ll receive some swag based on how hyped you are, which takes 1-2 weeks to ship once the order is in. Then, you share your swag with the world! You’ll receive a special badge for your Discord profile, access to a secret server, a monthly secret newsletter, squad challenges, a HypeSquad t-shirt, and a box of Discord swag for when you run your own events, which will arrive 4-5 weeks before your event date.
There are a few requirements to being a HypeSquad member. To be part of the Online program, you only have to be old enough to use Discord, which is 13 years old. To be eligible for events, you must be 16. If you do events, these events have to be gaming-related conventions and local gaming tournaments. Discord does not have to be attending the event themselves. To apply to work events, you need to submit a video. This video should show your face, show your personality, answer all of the questions, and be under 3 minutes, to truly impress the people at Discord.
Event coordinators should have a few things ready to go before submitting an application. Include all of your event’s social media links, set your server invite link to never expire, make sure you own and maintain your server, make sure your event will have 50+ attendees, and finally, apply early enough so you have 5-6 weeks before the event (preferably more).
HypeSquad also has “houses”: the house of Bravery, Brilliance, and Balance. Much like Hogwarts houses, you will join one of these houses by taking a quiz, and can compete in squad challenges for points.
That’s all about the Discord HypeSquad! Let us know if you’re currently in the HypeSquad or if you’re interested in applying. Does the idea of repping Discord at events excite you? Discuss in the comments below!
