Live Coverage is very simple & easy. When it comes to covering a CoD League Match or a LAN Event, there are 4 basic steps to follow. This tutorial will explain them.


1. If the tweet begins with an "@" always put a period before the @.

  • Example: .@TeamEnVyUs ties the series at 1-1 with a 6-2 win on Riot S&D vs. @Team_Kaliber! bit.ly/AWProLeague
  • Why?: If a tweet begins with an "@" only people who follow that person will be able to see the tweet. So we add a period before the @ so that the tweet goes to everyone.


2. Every live coverage tweet must have a bit.ly or link that redirects to the site.

  • Example: .@TeamEnVyUs ties the series at 1-1 with a 6-2 win on Riot S&D vs. @Team_Kaliber! bit.ly/AWProLeague
  • Why?: We want to redirect traffic from twitter to our site.


3. Formatting Tweets

3.1 Map Score Tweets

Map tweets need to have both teams @'s. Explain the score of the series, the score of the Map, & who won and who lost.

  • Example: .@TeamEnVyUs ties the series at 1-1 with a 6-2 win on Riot S&D vs. @Team_Kaliber! bit.ly/AWProLeague

Other Examples:

  • .@eLevateGG wins Ascend CTF 5-2 to take a 2-1 series lead vs. @FaZeClan! bit.ly/AWProLeague
  • .@AwareGaming wins Bio Lab S&D 6-3 vs. @AutomaticReload! Aware leads 2-0 bit.ly/AWProLeague


3.2 Mid Match Tweets

Mip Match tweets need to have both teams @'s. Explain the current score of the map, who is leading in score, & how much time is left.

  • Example: At halftime @StunnerGaming leads @DenialEsports 2-0 on Bio Lab CTF! #UMGOrlando25k bit.ly/UMGOrlando
  • Example: .@StunnerGaming win three straight rounds to lead @DenialEsports 4-2 on Detroit S&D! #UMGOrlando25k bit.ly/UMGOrlando
  • Example: .@DenialEsports have a 122-45 lead vs. @StunnerGaming after 5 mins of play on Solar HP! #UMGOrlando25k bit.ly/UMGOrlando


3.3 End of Series Tweets

End of Series tweets need to have both teams @'s. Explain the who won the series, what the series score was, & and other relevant information.

  • Example: .@TeamEnVyUs wins Bio Lab S&D 6-1 to take the series 3-2 vs. @TheRiseNation! bit.ly/AWProLeague
  • Example: TJHALY CLUTCH THROW! @StunnerGaming win Uplink & defeat @DenialEsports 3-1! #UMGOrlando25k bit.ly/UMGOrlando
  • Example: .@OpTicGaming sweep @StunnerGaming 3-0 & They have guaranteed a T2 placing! #UMGOrlando25k bit.ly/UMGOrlando
