They are just digging up their grave. They have so much feedback and still decide to do the exact opposite for money not realising that if they actually improved stuff they would get more money in the long run.
I would assume Twitch will allow esports events to maintain the ads, it's probably more about targeting a certain demographic in creators.
they're rewriting it rn and making exceptions lmao
We still have youtube, maybe some other streaming platform will gain popularity after recent events. Also, blast tv is kinda bussin, I've been watching entire major on their platform. Csgo events aren't going anywhere, I just hope that twitch is going to die
it aint that bad.
some channels will definitely move elsewhere, but the smarter ones alrdy did that.
twitch is also killing gaming, not saying they intended to do so but the twitch culture can make games obsolete due to streamers jumping on new games and other social media factors.
New kid mentality is this, if my streamer is not playing the game the game is bad, if twitch numbers are decreasing on a certain game it means it's bad, there have been many good games that have fallen off the face of the Earth do to this mentality, one of them is PUBG.
i made the switch to watching tournaments on youtube a while ago, you should too
I hope one day we get a genuine twitch competitor. Awful platform, always hated it, absolute dogshit but stays afloat because of it's popularity. Its either twitch or that gambling streaming platform where Ice Poseidon lurks like a goblin
They backpaddled 3 hours after their initial update already lol
For the streamers start do something for their show quality THMESELVES instead of building up viewing mass, shout out business e-mail and thrive. Good point for me, but Im not keen at this subject. Might be wrong :)
meanwhile they have the most intrusive advertisements I've ever seen, even worse than virus websites I used to click on as a kid lol
They could just go to YouTube, sure YouTube has similar problems but they're far more likely to get away with it there as YouTube isn't as financially unstable as Twitch given that twitch just shits out money and doesn't benefit amazon what so ever.
because twich is not for gaming and streaming lol, its just another cam site for whores and thots
big tournament organizers / companies have / will have contracts with twitch
PERFECT! i hate twitch, too many ads, buffering and loads of other stuff. actually youtube is better for cs
Twitch is just digging their own grave at this point, they have been for a little while now, and this will surely be one of the final nails in the coffin. The migration process from Twitch to other platforms has already started, so people won't be afraid to abandon Twitch after such an out of touch, greedy change.
instead we get
Ad (1 of 9)
Then it will just be broadcast on YouTube? Better platform for quality and performance anyways. It ain't that big of a deal bro.
End of the day what do you expect from such a corporation?
I hope streamers grow some balls and stop sucking of the tit of amazon because it will only get worse from here fucking communist.
just keeping the monopoly lol
They're just salty so much money involved in their platform not passes through them and they don't make a cut from it, so fuck it, nobody gets it now.
Esl is big enough to make their own stream
I hope everyone just switches to Youtube it's 100x better.
You can still do ads your self live, but big brands are not eager to let anyone do that.
Most of them have this vet process where they will check out the ad before you air it in order to make sure it's up to their desires.
Only biggest of brands like LTT get away with live ads because they've built connections over the years so big sponsors let them do it live.
So yeah, even if there is a room for an ad, it will reduce the income from them significantly because many brands won't accept to do that and will just move and sponsor people on youtube instead.
It's a huge blow for a bottom line of so many streamers.
ppl in here has internet explorer? it was misunderstanding and it was said 20 hours ago xD nothing will happen
it was about media companies selling real ads with audio and video to streamers themselves instead of twitch.
already watching blast on youtube 😎
Hopefully KICK takes over twitch soon
