Everybody on ILG complains about Twitch

Message Bookmarked
Bookmark Removed

There was no Twitch thread so I'm starting one.
It started with watching LCS matches live (rel: Do like me and get into eSports because that's how American gridiron football dies), then watching LCS matches live via the Roku in the living room, and then "hey there's no LCS on, what the hell do people use this ridiculous service for, anyway"

I now have an account and am following three random-ass people. One of them is Canadian. This doesn't end well, does it.
Anybody else dabble in this nonsense? What is wrong with us?

Just a bit of fun, let's be cool

i've been using it sporadically for the last few months. i really dislike the style of most of the streamers. it's probably just because i'm older than most of the streamers but i find them to be so fucking annoying that i want to die. the most popular streamers are a window into a version of dystopia. it's usually a dude who is constantly giving a shoutout to whoever just followed his channel or donated a couple bucks, or glancing off the side of the screen to say "what up Ragnarok420?" or whoever just said hello in the chat channel, only to never ever mention that person again, and meanwhile in the background shit is getting blown up and he's going "FUCK YEAH!" as a teammate in the game yells "YEAH BUDDY!" i am not expressing it well but it's a weird combo of commerce and self-promotion where success depends on the megalomania of the streamer. it's sort of fascinating to watch in small doses. it's also a style of streaming that probably represents only a small sliver of Twitch streamers - these are just the most popular streamers, the ones that have a busy chatbox and have hundreds or thousands of subscribers and stream on a regular schedule. but Twitch obviously wants this sliver to be the face of it. i guess there's no other way to organize the thousands of streams at any given moment other than just putting the most popular active ones at the top, but very few people are watching the vast majority of streams at any given moment.

i guess there's also the option of watching people play games who don't speak out loud. that can be alright, depending completely on the game they're playing, of course. but inevitably after watching someone play in silence for about 10 minutes i am mysteriously in the mood to just play a game myself.

every once in a while i find someone who is a little more low key and occasionally says interesting things. in those rare moments i need to remember to click the follow button. these are usually people that only have 0-4 people watching them. i have also had some success watching stuff in the Creative channel. it can be fun to just watch someone play around in photoshop for hours on end, and educational as well. there are also homemade cooking shows, arts and crafts, programmers, etc, so if you have a hobby that lends itself to streaming you should check Twitch to see if someone is working on something.

so i guess i hate it but i'm also sort of fascinated by it. it's tough to recommend Twitch to anyone without qualifying it with a bunch of warnings and caveats. i would never say "Twitch is awesome!" because then the other person would go check it out and likely find 10 horrific streamers in a row, if they made it that far. but there is a lot of good stuff in there if you're willing to dig. i will try to be better about following the better streamers and will post links to their streams on here when i find them, and it would be cool if others would do the same.

I look forward to hearing from you shortly, (Karl Malone), Sunday, 22 May 2016 21:03 (two years ago) Permalink

i've been wanting to gripe abt twitch for awhile, this nails it perfectly. i was watching some dark souls 1 stream on there, i think it was a guy who completed it straight thru w/ out getting hit or something crazy. but the whole thing was just completely unwatchable, his body taking up half the screen as he does constant shoutouts on top of whatever graphic/sound effect he has to alert you the viewer that someone just donated $2. and it was just hours of that!

you know who is a good streamer? the guy who recently got some internet fame for setting a new super mario bros. speed run record: https://www.twitch.tv/darbian

his is a little different because he's always working on perfecting a level so he's constantly resetting levels and trying certain sections over and over again. but he doesn't talk constantly and he seems like a real human being.

I look forward to hearing from you shortly, (Karl Malone), Sunday, 22 May 2016 21:39 (two years ago) Permalink

The ones I follow are basically variety streamers who I found because they were playing some niche game I've been wondering about myself, like Terraria, and giving themselves crazy challenges like "okay this time no armor hardcore expert mode!" with lots of exuberant cursing or yosemite-sam-esque quasi-cursing and only occasional shouting out followers because, well, not many people sub or follow them and there's like 5 regulars in the chat. I like watching how people deal with random disasters, some of these guys have a resilience / commitment to the run that is just beyond me.

I also sometimes enjoy watching people enthusiastically losing in multiplayer games. Whatever the opposite of "tilting" is.

El Tomboto, Sunday, 22 May 2016 21:54 (two years ago) Permalink

Yeah speed runners are sometimes fun to watch. Similar to how I got into LCS, once it clicked that I was watching people who not like you and me (ok not like me, anyway) it's a different category of spectatorship. Also somehow I stumbled across two military vets among the first couple of people I started watching - is that weird or what?

twitch is alright, i spend more time on there than i should. i try to find people who operate outside of the site's built-in chat culture/memes since that stuff mostly grates on me

I only set up an account to watch Karl Malone streams. I have also enjoyed things like "everyone on twitch plays pokemon" or whatever that was called. Y'know, the ones where chat commands control the game but everyone is trying to do it at the same time so it just turns into a giant mess.

So I started watching Flare2V's expert Terraria run on 1HP (using a save editor to force the handicap) and I have followed along for 727 deaths so far. still catching up. Now VG Badger has started the same type of run, I get to compare and contrast I guess. Artificially super-fragile runs are good shit though.

If there's a game coming out that I'm interested in, such as the upcoming console release of 7 Days to Die, I like to check out a few well-curated lets plays on youtube to see if it is something I could get into. But I'll rarely watch twitch streams. I want to hear from the gamer about the game they are playing and to learn a thing or two about strategies game mechanics, but twitch streams always seem to devolve into senseless shoutout banter.

Rod Steel (musicfanatic), Saturday, 18 June 2016 23:58 (two years ago) Permalink

Yeah it's amazing how little most streamers talk about the actual game they're playing.

Anyway I'm still catching up after a bunch of work travel, watching Flare do his 1hp run of Terraria and he's now died over 1500 times. The landscape is just completely littered with gravestones to a truly surreal degree. Twitch needs searchable tags for salty masochism, this shit's hilarious.

I need to draw a proportional Venn diagram.

this year's evo lineup, for the interested:

Street Fighter 5 - it's street fighter. very fundamental and grounded and slow paced. this is the main event as usual and the finals will be on ESPN2 Sunday night.
Tekken 7 - the most popular 3d fighter this generation. this is probably the most watchable game for the uninitiated, it has good clarity and is faster and more exciting than street fighter.
Smash Bros Melee - half the smash players only want to play this game still so we're stuck with 2 tournament smash games forever. I played this for like 1000 hours as a kid and don't really want to see more of it at this point even in a different context.
Smash Bros Wii U - this is kinda a lame duck game now since the new one looks like a big improvement on it for the esports setting.
Dragonball FighterZ - this game looks absolutely amazing in motion though the pro matches get a little samey. fun to watch in small doses.
Guilty Gear Xrd - stylish anime fighter. the original guilty gear is the common ancestor of all the fast anime games but I don't know much about this iteration
BlazBlue Cross Tag Battle - extremely fast paced anime crossover game. my personal favorite on this list and the one I'm most looking forward to watching but probably the least legible to uninitiated viewers
Injustice 2 - DC comics fighter from the makers of mortal kombat. I only watched it once and it looked pretty slow

then of course people will be streaming side tournaments of all sorts of more obscure games all weekend which is probably my favorite part of the whole thing

I am not a Twitch person (I didn’t think) but put it on randomly as some background the other day.

Escape From Tarkov came on and man I was super into it. Russian made battle royale thing, closest thing you can get to a “sim” in this genre I guess. Literally have to take the time to load bullets into magazines and stuff. Have to deal with injuries. The streamer wasted a dude wearing a riot gear type helmet with face shield, looted it, put it on but there was bullet damage on the visor which obstructed vision so he was lifting it up and down depending on the situation.

Idk, could be tedious and frustrating jumping into it yourself, but watching someone good playing with his also good buddy was kinda thrilling.

STAT | $30,000 - What it costs to have a top-tier streamer play your game for an hour on their channel, according to IndieCatapult’s Steve Filby, who was marketing manager on Motion Twin’s Dead Cells.

i might stream an older game this afternoon - leaning toward SNES. anyone have any suggestions? i would like to play something that i haven't beaten before, but probably not something that will involve dying over and over and starting at the beginning of the game. if it goes well and i don't hate myself i would like to keep going all week, during the afternoons (my partner's out of the house til 5 most days)

Super Mario RPG
Super Mario World 2: Yoshi's Island (this gets difficult iirc, but i have decent old school mario skills)
Zelda: Link to the Past (i have played the first 15 hours of this game sooooo many times but life always gets in the way)

I've never really played SNES games like ever. Our first home console was an N64; I picked up a few different SNES games on various virtual consoles but never spent much time on them. I booted up SMRPG on an emulator at least once but emulator + laptop + keyboard is not a setup conducive to having any fun.

like maybe...lufia or something? i'm open to that too

have very fond memories of lufia 2 and how FAST it felt. the walking animations, the text scrolling, the random battles... it all felt like it was blazing by 2x the speed of some comparable j-rpg from the era. probably 3x faster than something from the ps2 era. I should play this again.
