Autohost based on game
We have an official game channel on Twitch -- we have tons of streamers that play the game, but (of course) most are variety streamers.
We'd love to autohost some of these folks playing our game, but it'd be awkward if we autohost them and they randomly play :any game that's not our game:. After all, it's the official game Twitch channel!
This would be useful to any themed streamers or gamers that only play x or y game. There may be variety streamers that play MOBAS but a LoL Twitch channel would autohost their friends only when they're playing that particular game.
Game name is already in the meta data, seems like it'd be minimal effort to implement!
Great idea, would help game developers shout out smaller channels that are playing their game when they are playing their game. For example if a streamer who only streams league of legends hosts another streamer while playing league of legends then they switch to a smaller game like Town of Salem, then the league streamer's fans are going to be confused why the streamer is hosting someone playing a completely different game from a different game genre. This could also help as I stated before that game developers could host smaller streamers playing their game to help get them some promotion to get started. The auto game host also comes into play here say Town of Salem hosts a streamer then the streamer streams League of Legends, then the Town of Salem fans are going to be confused why the Town of Salem Twitch channel is hosting someone playing League of Legends. Very great idea, hope it gets implemented

Sorry sweetie but on Twitch they support the streamers on being streamers, not on the games they play. Don't be scummy
