Frequently asked questions
What is Kleos Live?
Kleos Live is a mobile application that lets you put some money in your pocket, raise some more for charity, and connect with fans just by playing the video games you’re already playing! You’ll also stream all these games, which grows your audience and creates a totally different way for your fans to engage with you.
Am I a good fit for Kleos?
Almost certainly. We have athletes from all of the major US sports leagues, entertainers, musicians, and streamers as well. Whatever the source and size of your following, we encourage you to submit an application -- it won’t take more than five minutes!
What do I need to play on Kleos?
Requirements vary by game, but in general you’ll need to have the particular game downloaded, a functional gaming headset, and the correct console (for non cross-platform games).
How much do I get paid?
You set the “sticker price” for your sessions. We’ll provide you with guidance as to what talent of similar levels of fame are charging, but the end decision is your call. Whatever this price is, Kleos Live keeps 25% (of which we donate 1% to charity) and you keep the remaining 75%. Alternatively, if you want to choose a charity to donate 5% or your earnings to, we’ll match you, and it’ll be a 70/20/10% split and the organization you chose to donate to will appear when your fans view your event while browsing the app.
How do I get paid?
Your accrued earnings will accumulate in your “in-app wallet,” where you can then request them to be transferred to an external bank account via Zelle, PayPal, or a written check. You must have at least 20$ in your wallet in order to “cash out.” If your balance remains untouched and you fail to access the App for a period of time exceeding two years, all attempts will be made to contact you, but if these attempts fail, we may have to report these assets to the relevant agency.
What if I need to cancel or reschedule my event?
If your event is unfilled, or filled and there are more than twelve hours before it’s scheduled start time, there’s no problem at all! You can cancel or reschedule with no penalty whatsoever. However, if your event is already filled up and it’s within a twelve hour window before the scheduled start time, we strongly discourage your cancellation of games. If this happens repeatedly, we may be forced to suspend or terminate your account.
What if I’m running late?
We strongly encourage our talent to arrive on time to each and every game; simply put, it makes for a far better experience for your fan. That being said, we allow for minor personal delays as well as situations in which technical issues arise, and hence there is a 15 minute grace period after the scheduled start time for Talent to send their game invitation. However, if tardiness becomes a common occurrence, we may have to issue warnings or even suspend your account.
Can I promote products, brands or upcoming projects during my Kleos livestreams?
In a word, absolutely! We want Kleos to make your life easier, and if you have brand, sponsorship, or project-based commitments, get in touch with us and we’d be more than happy to find ways to kill two birds with one stone.
Nobody is signing up to play with me. Can Kleos help?
Yes definitely. There are certain “best practices” for getting your games consistently filled and we’d be more than happy to have a Talent Services representative get in touch with you to brainstorm ways to make Kleos work for you.
Can Kleos help get me going with live streaming?
We can! If you’ve never streamed yourself gaming before, it really couldn’t be simpler. We’ll send you a webcam if you need one, and walk you through creating an account on Twitch (or, alternatively you can use an existing Facebook Live or Youtube Gaming account). The whole process takes less than ten minutes.
