Do you even stand a fair chance if you dont have engineering on those private servers?

Yes, engineering is a big advantage and that isn't 'fair' (although nothing is stopping everyone from having it, except for time investment but time = reward).

Wow is an MMO and concepts of fairness and people moaning over a perceived lack of it are, in part at least, what has lead to the homogenised shit show we have today where balance / fairness have been taking precedent over fun for years.

My most enjoyable seasons in arena have mostly been the ones that weren't particularly balanced or fair but were very fun (e.g. s5 RMP with triple gnomish lighting generator? s8 shadowmourne TSG / wiz cleaves ).

#4577220 Why Non-Gameplay Twitch Streams Are Bullshit

What you fail to realize Glinkz (even tho i agree with almost everything you said) is that the vast majority of her viewers are simply not interested in what you or other "legit" streamers have to offer. Let's say she turns off her stream, you can be sure at least 90% of the viewers would simply go to another similar channel instead of Cdew's or any gaming content related channel.
So no, you are not competing with those twitch girl streamers, they simply don't attract the same audience, you don't share the same viewer base. (sorry for my bad english hope it's understandable)

Your English is perfect flubby. It's true, Like if you want to attract that audience you have to offer the same kind of content. So if someone watches Sodapoppin, they most likely watch Reckful or in a better example NMP's stream and maybe other streamers within the same area. It's like trying to compare Towelie/Swifty's viewers to your own.

You should work on getting your own USP (Unique selling point) -  Since even though you may think it. Arena gameplay alone is no longer a USP. Anyone can que arena and unless you are playing with a personality or have something unique to other being able to Turbo or jungle or whatever at 3k MMR isn't going to cut it...Just go have a look at the league section if you think it's such a struggle here. People at super high divisions are not even passing 10 viewers and that game is entirely pvp driven with over 10x the amount of players.

Being a "Non gameplay" female streamer has a pretty obvious USP and you cannot deny it has a target market, you can't say that the reason you have less viewers is because the top 8 streamers have them all, that is simply not the case - They offer something you don't over an extended period of time.

Jah is a character, Pikaboo is a character thats why when they stream. People watch, high level gameplay is secondary to the new primary content which is the personalities behind the characters.

You have to realize you are catering to a sub section of a sub section which realistically, in business practice. Is not a good practice to go by.

(World of Warcraft "Overall brand" -> World of Warcraft: WOD ->  Pvp Players -> Arena players)

Being an arena player, You interest, arena players and maybe aspiring member's of the pvp community. That's it. It's not a roast towards gameplay streamers, but I know if I turn on my stream and stream High mmr Rbgs I am only going to interest RBG players unless I have something unique to offer such as me playing with a personality or me creating interesting engaging primary content with the game being secondary.

I read some other posts about leeches ect - It's not leeching in a business sense since it's broadening your "Audience Reach". If you catch 5 fish in your net you cast....You have 5 more fish than you started with. With close to no effort or time investment. If you don't capitalize on communities then the only person who suffers is you.

And to give credit to one person who did this before they got banned, was Barry. He offered something different to other streamers (He didn't try to be the good guy he just kind of went loco at the chance) he featured content with already well reputed names within the Warcraft streaming community thus making co-alliance with already successful communities which often have returning viewers whilst also offering high level gameplay in the background.

(Note this is not a post about him as a person I literally don't care its just a way to show you guys that it is possible to break through from the third page.)

Get called a leech by one community? I bet you at least one fith of them went to that persons stream to tell them that and increased the streamers ad revenue.

Gonna bait some hate here, but who remembers when Reckful was the main Warcraft streamer and Mitch jones used to play with him all the time? Nmp is correct in the way that he says Mitch exploded when he started questing girls...See what im trying to say here? Have background content, play with popular personalities whilst developing one of your own. Offer a USP that gives your audience a reason to return (Comedy - Cringe you name it)

Smart people with networking capabilities will do better than people who don't. This is providing that you already have a unique selling point already such as in this threads case, being a non gameplay personality driven stream.

Apologies for any typo's or grammar mistakes. I am writing this from an old Samsung phone whilst my current one is charging.

Edit: As I wrote this I went on twitch and saw ElementalQt streaming a blondiewondie cosplay and averaing 10x his normal viewership, Kind of shows that even crossdressing on a livestreaming website can be a USP...9 Subscribers as I wrote this.

If you want some money people, you know what to do next.

#4525431 First legion leaks

Really disappointing to see them add yet another secondary resource to yet another class.

After the horrible introductions of shadoworbs, holy power, burning embers and soul shards (am I forgetting any?) they decided to add yet another terrible secondary resource into the game.

It was interesting on DKs because they were a new class and it was a niche, but this is just getting out of hand now. Especially because it absolutely decimates the play styles of the mentioned classes.

If you can see the situation and how blizzard (or whoever that was representing them) handled thinking there isnt blame to put on blizzard, you're not really worth arguing with. At least not worth my time anyways.

It honestly doesnt matter if they both logged on from a different computer, and sold 20 carries that week. The fact of the matter isyou deal with that before they get to the stage and before you have them thinking they are going to play. Also, it is incredibly inconsistent and hypocritial to selectively and all of the sudden take action against some players. You realize probably everyone of the teams had brocken the ToS right? And the US ones? And countless players on the ladders who are not taken action against?

Obviously there is a ToS. Apparently some players broke that. The way blizzard handled and dealt with it is just pathetic and embarrassing and inconsistent. That is all. Peace.

Posted Bloódx on 03 October 2015 - 07:12 PM


Speechless... or am i ? No, im not surprised at all.

I know how you guys feel so much, last year i was in 2 shit situations @ EU regionals aswell with mp/zeep, we had a DC against Bleached Bones and didnt get a replay.

Up vs firegodcomp they purposely used Mind Controll to remove my Soul Link taking 20% dmg and no one understood why i was resummoning pets 24/7.

I got so mad i told everyone fuck off, flew home same day on my own expense not waiting for the day after to use blizzards rotten tickets, i was disgusted. Not to mention finally when i got to regionals at first, i didnt think that this was going to be the case. I ended up quitting, i had to - else it wouldn't stop nagging me.

Conclusion on this theme is that blizzard just does not give a flying crap about us, so what can we do about it? Sit here and watch? Or stay together and do something usefull for once in this community. I'd put alot of effort and time to get Minpojkes team to blizzcon, and maybe even xonika. Problem is im out of ideas on how to do it, so if youre smarter than me and come up with something im game to make it happen. This is so fucking unfair, its DISGUSTING and i might have problems sleeping this night.

Maybe i care too much but at the end of the day Jonathan(Minpojke) is my friend and honestly blizzard can't just do whatever the fuck they want, when they want, there are countless of hours practicing and giving up working hours/school.. its beyond explainable how stupid this is.

Thanks for the support and I understand people dnt care but for the sake of the people that do, I can explain. I arrive in prague and have 1 of the greatest times of my life meeting the people I met and just having a great day.  That night I check my email and find I got 72 ban only along with my gf gettin a warning on her account altough we've lived together for over a year ive never logged my new acc (1 I set up specifically for qualifiers which was completely clean and passed all 2 pre checks before the qualifiers, about a week ago my dad came over to visit from ireland, staying for 3 days in my room where my pc is, he slept quite early and ofc I was bored with my gf currently being on a nightshift so I logged my acc on her pc) as of recent blizzard has a new system which tracks pc id of some sort instead of the standard ip address ( which is why boosters who use proxies got banned before the qualifer/during the checks eg. Gelubabas team. I showed the email I got to multiple esl admins/rederees and multiple blizz staff who I asked for a contact number because I didnt have time to sort this via ticket, despite my worry every assured me that this happens sometimes and should be fine, not to worry. After practicing for 3hours this morning I was confident we would place atleast top 3 after being very successful in wargames. 5mins before the opening game I arrive with my fresh banana and nice cold water. I get told by some guy im dq and I cant play, I question him and many others and so did every other team(excluding pjke and cavys team who were starting their match. After 20mins and appearntly triple checking with blizzard, im dq and have to leave the premises. I assure you, I and many others did all we could to find out the reason of my "bad standing" account. I asked many blizz staff for a contact number to atleast explain/ask them to check location/ip etc, I was told to ask x guy who sent me to y guy and so on. Lagyna and I left after we figured no1 cares and it was too late to get un-dq considering other games had been played. Its hard to read over and check everything on my shit phone so excuse the grammar and I dnt expect any reply and will ignore most arrogant and idiotic comments coz believe it or not ima go have some fun in this sick weather and beautiful city. Thanks to every1 for the support and the guys ive spent the amazing players ive met in the last days.
