What's the point of having half the stream botting to get souvenirs though?
2019-02-07 16:50
it inflates the value of the scene, making it seem more worth than it is, cash in on ads and sponsors. A noob business man was left in charge.

Yeah, I know that. The problem is that they should have thought about a better way to get souvenirs before actually releasing them for the first time. Now they will get "less" viewers because people who botted just to get souvenirs won't be watching the games, and people who only cared about the drops but can't get a pass probably won't watch the games either. So yeah, Valve fucked up by changing it now and not a long time ago, but you will be able to see real viewers and not just 70% viewbots 30% real people.

He is asking for a wagecut for the entire scene. Just like anyone involved talking about cheat is. People really think the players & talent believe the scene is clean? Saying anything else comes with a built-in hidden fine.

im just saying. i already can see threads like "katowice shit major low viewership lmao lol"

We're gonna having the new players watching major , and no shitty fake ppl so it's better. I'm sure the grand final will make 1,5 M viewers .

"1,5M viewers" nt
2019-02-07 18:17
150k at most lmao
2019-02-07 18:17
I think it's quite fair actually. So many people have set up extra accounts JUST to mine souvenirs...

metabomb.net/csgo/gameplay-guides/cs-go-.. csgopedia.com/cs-go-prime-account/ pcgamer.com/uk/valve-considers-prime-mat.. When you reach level 21, you click on the Upgrade button for Prime, which requires a working phone number?

I think that’s for guaranteed souvenir packages.
2019-02-07 17:03
Yeah braindead move
2019-02-07 17:04
The hope is that the influx of new players/viewers will offset the assholes who creates 100/1000s of bots. In the end, nothing good comes from artificially inflating viewership. Unless you're in China.
2019-02-07 17:06
Wtf do we need to buy a viewer pass?
2019-02-07 17:06
15$ game = free major pass free game = 10$ major pass

The most Souvenir Packages you can receive is three; one each time your Event Coin is upgraded." You still get packages just from watching, right? Too lazy to check
2019-02-07 17:14
no you need to get viewer pass

Well not really imo, Katowice 2018 pulled like 500K viewers even with no drops. Shouldnt be too bad
2019-02-07 17:22
this gonna be a normal tournament, gonna get max 500k viewers or less
2019-02-07 18:02
I'll be happy to watch it anyway. Majors are always fantastic
