When I click the esports hub buttons I dont have access to see them in Discord, how can I fix?

How do I record hours with my employer so they can send you a grant for my time spent?

Great question! Check with your HR team to find out the appropriate steps to record your volunteer time for credit and benefit kids by doing so!

My scores aren't reflecting accurately, how can I get it corrected?

Sorry to hear that! Just note this is not an automated process yet and it is being done by hand to ensure accuracy, so our team may be slightly behind if it is day of and live. If you still believe there to be an error live, or not, send us a message and screenshots: HERE

When can I play to have it count for scoring?

At any time from 3pm to 11pm Pacific time day of the event. So if your call time is Wendesdays, then you can submit your scores from 3pm to 11pm on Wednesday. Please do not cheat. Your actual playtime must be reflected, so dont play before the event start time and record games and screenshots to submit them, that would be considered bad sportsmanship, and may receive a ban from the event. Playing for the kids is important, but so is being fiar and honorable!

What if I dont care about scoring or playing during the times Esports is active, is there still a way to get involved?

Absolutely! You may join our Causeplaying podcast, please fill out this form to get on the waitlist Here

How does playing count for volunteer time, I mean, I am just playing games right?

Playing games within the League of Pros: Esports counts as volunteer time because it is part of an organized effort to raise awareness and funds for charity, specifically the Games For Love charity. The league collaborates with companies to establish clear guidelines on how volunteer hours are counted and recorded. They provide tools and resources to help teams track their time and submit their volunteer hours seamlessly. Additionally, participating companies are encouraged to match their employees’ volunteer hours with financial contributions, such as dollars-for-doers or volunteer grant programs​​. This means that while you are playing games, you are also contributing to a charitable cause, making your gaming hours count as volunteer work.

I want to invite people to watch me play while I am doing this, where can I do that?

The best way for you to do this is to set up an account on Twitch, play there, and stream. By doing so, you can provide anyone you want to watch you live using your twitch stream link. Games For Love team members can also pull in yur feed to our larger broadcast to allow it to be seen by a larger audience!

I want to invite people I know to see the event online, where do I send them?

Games For Love streams League Of Pros: Esports events on our official Twitch channel on https://twitch.tv/gamesforloveorg starting in March 2024! So drop a follow and sub to be notified as soon as we are live!
