DotaCasters is a brand new casting service that aims to become the go-to place for players, teams, organizations and tournaments in need of a casting hand. While professional casters will soon be available for hire, aspiring casters can also apply, in order to gain know-how and exposure.

DotaCasters.com will be launched and fully operational on May 1. The service’s main goal is to “provide a quality casting service to the general public of Dota 2! Dotacasters will also be used as a platform to give the proper exposure to new, and upcoming quality amateur casters”.
The site will have two levels of casters available for hire, with prices ranging from $5 to $50. With every cast, clients will also receive a recording of the game. Some better known caster names for hire include “Sir Action Slacks”, “PimpmuckL” and “WakeyPixel”.

The group will also be hosting a “Customer Appreciation Tournament” of $10,000, where semiprofessional and professional teams will be invited to compete for the prize pool, which is funded by the customers’ payments of services. The games will all be casted by their contracted casters chosen based on customer reviews.
Currently coaches, artists and analysts are available for hire through various sites and options. This seems to be the first formalized place for casters to showcase their talents and find jobs.
