Engaging the Hearthstone community

According to the announcement, competitors will get to co-stream their games during each Battlegrounds: Lobby Legends event. Players will also get a chance to co-stream Raid Leaders, which runs from April 2-3, and Noblegarden.

“Competitors will be able to co-stream their matches during each Lobby Legends event, but we’d love for more members of the community to get involved,” Blizzard wrote. “If you are interested in streaming Lobby Legends on your own channels, and leveling up your casting abilities to the next Tier, then we want to hear from you.”

Battlegrounds: Lobby Legends players must apply through a survey before March 21 to co-stream Raid Leaders. As for Noblegarden, streamers must apply before May 2. Blizzard will review the requests and choose who will co-stream each Lobby Legends event.
