    Updated broadcasting requirement.

    Twitch is to be used to broadcast games, home team is the user to broadcast by default. The away team can broadcast to fulfill this requirement as well satisfying the home teams requirement. If a capture device is used (El Gato etc...) games/links need to be uploaded on the owners team page.
