As we’ve said in our 2017 outlook, we’d like to get closer to the Twitch and Youtube community and we are happy to announce that we’ve taken a first step into that direction. You might have noticed a new widget on the right sidebar when loading the page on a Desktop browser. It shows a random Twitch stream or Youtube video. With the feature we want to honor the hard working communities that bring live content to the game every day.
We have compiled a list of active Twitch streamers and Youtubers that the script is working with. Generally it highly favors streams before videos, because Twitch is more dependent on live audience and the Youtube scene already well represented in our weekly Community Watch. Additionally the script always shows a video whenever it is unable to find an active stream on its list.
If you feel we should include you with your Twitch or Youtube channel in our feature, please read through the requirements and use the form below to apply. Please note that we might need a few days to review your channel.

Youtube channels for now must exclusively publish Neverwinter related content. No other videos are allowed.
- Youtube channels that do not exclusively feature Neverwinter content need to create a playlist where they store their Neverwinter videos.
- Although we do not have a hard requirement in terms of frequency, Twitch channels need to stream regularly. We mainly want to promote the ones that are interested in establishing followers and grow the games’ community.
- Neverwinter must be the main game you stream on Twitch. We know there are great channels out there that also happen to regularly play Neverwinter, but at this point we are only looking for dedicated Neverwinter streamers.
- Twitch channels need to provide active gameplay content (or viewer interaction, answering questions etc.) at any time when online. Please do not leave the stream to run errands, eat or sleep. As general rule you shouldn’t be idle for more than 30 minutes, even if you’re running a giveaway in the meantime. If you absolutely want to keep the stream online, set your game to “Not Playing” as outlined in the Twitch Community Guidelines.
We would additionally appreciate a mention or link to our site on your channel or video description. It’s not required though.
