Live Role Beta FAQ

After several months of being offline, we've finally discovered a workaround that may let us re-release Live Role to servers on the free version of Streamcord.

As the name implies, Live Role is still in beta, so you should expect bugs. Please report any issues to our support server.

How do I get the beta?

As of now, the Live Role beta is rolled out to roughly 13% of servers using the free bot, on a completely random basis.

To check if you can use the Live Role beta, just run the !twitch info command and check that your server's "Current shard" is between 0 and 9.

For example, this server would have access to the Live Role beta:

If your current shard doesn't match one of the values that currently has the beta, don't worry! We'll likely be increasing the amount of servers that have access soon.

Keep in mind that there is no way to force your server into the Live Role beta. Whether or not Live Role will work is tied to the server itself, and removing and re-adding the bot will have no effect.

When will Live Role reach my server?

Expected release dates are rough estimates. It's possible that we will not be able to deploy to more servers on time; we want to do our absolute best to ensure this situation never happens again.

I have the beta, but Live Role doesn't work in my server.

As mentioned before, it's likely that there will be issues with Live Role before the full release. It would be extremely helpful if you could open a ticket in our Discord server and explain what issues you're having.

If I purchased Pro, do I get early access to Live Role?

Yes, all Streamcord Pro subscribers have access to Live Role through the Pro bot. Note that if you're subscribed to Pro, it does not guarantee that you would receive Live Role in any of your servers that only have the free bot.

Please use extra consideration if you're deciding whether or not to purchase Pro in order to receive early access to Live Role. Live Role for Streamcord Pro is still in beta as well, and the same terms listed on this page apply.

However, it's much appreciated if you want to subscribe to Pro, as this new solution will likely end up costing us 4x more than our existing hosting costs.
