Overall I have been getting into the World of Warships and been watching more streams but I was surprised about what the fact that if you linked your Twitch Account to Wargaming Account you could get some free stuff. Why do I find this interesting and do I think its a good idea?
This is the first time that I have come across drops, but it is up to the game developer however often these drops drop and completely random, but what I found was that it encourages players to watch streams and helps the streamer out but how does it help the company? While it decreases the chance of a stream with 0 viewers it encourages people to find someone they like but stay in their stream to have a chance of winning something. Now, these rewards aren’t game-changing but its something for nothing maybe a few flags, what does this do though? While the more popular a stream becomes the more chance you get spotted meaning it could encourage new players.
In the era of DLC, this makes complete sense they aren’t giving a huge value but it is enough to increase activity within streams that could help find new players to the platform. Along with the fact these streams tend to use premium ships and that’s mainly because while these ships do not have an advantage over the tech tree they are also slightly different. They give you more credits and cost less to repair so there is an adventure as I’ve found its hard to make a profit once you get past a certain level on the tech try so you have to go back down the tiers to keep your account in the positive unless you are using a premium ship.
So do I think this a good idea, I think it a really good idea because for very little everyone wins streamers and normal players. I have also found these streamers to be very helpful compared to other communities World of Warship seems to have a far less toxic community compared to the likes of League of Legends. I have only come across one person since playing this game to have someone say something in chat negatively about my gameplay as opposed to League where it is every other match.
