Raid Chant - Bring Chants to Raids
SCENARIO - A Broadcaster is Raiding another Broadcaster and asks Chat to Copy & Paste a Raid Message
BACKGROUND - A Broadcaster needs to program their Raid Message(s) into a bot, and then the Broadcaster/Mod must manually trigger the command(s) in chat pre-raid. Users must find the correct Raid Message based on subscriber status, in a moving chat, and then manually Copy & Paste once the Raid is complete. If the User doesn’t have Pause When Scrolling enabled - this is a frustrating task. Additionally, New Users on Twitch do not know about Pause While Scrolling, making this process the most difficult for newcomers, adding friction to on-boarding.
PROBLEM - This is a poor user experience. It requires significant set-up, especially for new Broadcasters, and manual input(s) from each Chatter each and every Raid.
This also leads to poor uptake in Raid Messages. If a stream has 100 Viewers, 60 of which are Chatters, they might have 20 Chatters post the Raid Message.
It’s overly complex. A Broadcaster needs to make sure to Copy & Paste their own Raid Message while signing off, and performing the Raid itself.
SOLUTION - Chants. Use a slightly modified Chants feature to bring Raid Messages into the Raid Command as a first-party feature.
When Raiding, once Chat has been redirected to the raided Broadcaster, a Chant box would appear in the Chat with the appropriate Raid Message pre-filled. Chatters would only need to click a button to send the Raid Chant. (A new term to distinguish this Raid Message from a traditional/current Raid Message)
This would eliminate/replace manual commands pre-raid, as well as Copy & Paste for each User. It would also eliminate selection errors, where unsubscribed Chatters select the (wrong) subscriber Raid Message.
ADDITIONAL BENEFITS -
1 - Disable Raid Chant: Not all Broadcasters are appreciative of Raid Messages. This feature would enable possible additional controls for the Raided Broadcaster to disable or limit Raid Chants
2 - Emote Lending: This feature would enable a possible additional feature - where all Raiders would be able to send a Raid Chant with Channel Emotes regardless of subscription status.
3 - As a whole, Raid Chants would serve as a foundation for other Raid/ Raid Message features
