The Overwatch team is partnering with Twitch to host Support a Streamer during the second beta!
It’s to advertise OW2 And we’ll be the ones paying for these big names to advertise it, NOT YOU.
I see what you’re doing, it’s smart but not fooling me with it.
Why tho… why not just watch them?
You still have 2 days to fix this. If you can’t expand the list to include any OW streamer, at least lower the # of subs required. Spending $15-$18 on streamers we don’t actually want to support is not a good feeling. People aren’t against supporting streamers, but this list is… Yikes.
Edit - I’d also like for some transparency on what % blizzard walks away with out of this deal. We know 50% of the proceeds go to the streamer, and the other half goes to Amazon. What % do you take from Amazon’s cut?
Cool concept and skin but the skin isn’t worth $18
We could also support them by watching them with their ads … this is a low move somehow !
can’t wait to watch a streamer that played the game once this year
kanye west voice: I love some of the t-pain songs, but what does t-pain have to do with overwatch ?
Tier one sub costs 5.99$ btw. guys, so 18$ for this skin “donating”, more like paying streamers that Blizzard made deal with to promote OW2 beta.
Pretty shameless asking us to “support” a streamer that regularly gambles millions away in front of his impressionable kid audience and isn’t even a regular member of the community any more.
And he’s far from the only questionable name up there.
I prefer the Beta 1 strategy over this one tbh
Love the skin but no plans to support any of your lap monkeys.
Please mention the date more upfront and explicitly. It’s the day AFTER the beta starts and I can see many people not knowing this.
To think they even plan on doing more of these down the line. Disgusting.
Streamers already swimming in money aside, the irony here is that those streamers doesn’t play the game even during drops events.
This is one of those big OOF moments. Like a “do you guys not have phones” moment
I’m more and more worried about overwatch 2’s monetization… I feel October 4th could be my first and last day in this game…
I generally don’t have any problems subbing and gifting subs; I just don’t agree with the really big names on that list.
T-pain is really random.
Not to mention a lot of those non-regular OW streamers tend to drag blizz’s name through the mud constantly. Asmongold is a fantastic example. He spends a lot of his stream time ranting about blizz games/the state of the company, and not really in a flattering light to blizz.
The streamer list is racist. It’s so funny how blizzard is always talking about inclusivity and stuff and then when they select streamers to support they put 0 arabic streamers(or russian).
Not even YZNSA who is in the top15 streamers of OW.(source: check on twitchmetrics website )
This list is a BIG mistake. A lot of people who didn’t stream ow for MONTHS are in the list. but the daily streamers aren’t (like: LHCloudy, FefeGG, Zaroide, YZNSA, chazm, sirmajed…)
I don’t mind paying but I want to SUPPORT streamers that really supported overwatch when everyone left. I don’t think that streamers like xQc need the “support” of the OW community while they didnt stream for ages.
The event should be open to every streamer and you should let the community support the streamer they want.
how about no?
how about you pay the people advertising your game
I sometimes love this community for once everyone is on board and against this !
