Add a general Star Wars category.
We would love to see a general Star Wars category where all fans doing all things Star Wars related could stream in that category. For example, playing SWTOR? You could stream in that category. Star Wars cosplayers could stream in the category. Other Star Wars games, same thing. The Star Wars game viewership isn't as large as other categories, but Star Wars content combined could be something great. We'd love to see this happen so we could help the games get more traffic and meet a lot more Star Wars nerds. ;o) Thanks!
Hi all! I threw together some research + data to back this up a bit better. These stats do not include crafters, artists, or cosplayers that create Star Wars related content.
Unless “Star Wars'' is specifically placed in a stream title, it can be difficult to browse and find artists or cosplayers working on Star Wars related projects.
In addition to helping Star Wars streamers, Twitch would be able to offer ad placement that targets the Star Wars community as a whole. We could predict huge gains for Twitch.
On 12/5/22 at approximately 9pm PT, there were 874 viewers across the Star Wars game categories below:
Star Wars the Old Republic - 111
Star Wars Jedi: Fallen Order - 351
LEGO Star Wars: the Skywalker Saga - 150
Star Wars: Battlefront II - 90
Star Wars: Galaxy of Heroes - 79
Many other Star Wars games - 93
Please share and vote up if you’d like to see this happen! Thanks for the help, fam.
This is an excellent idea! Star Wars fans often have crossover interests within Star Wars, and having one place to watch games and discuss shows, books, and so on would be great!
Agreed, I think this could prove to be helpful to content creators and viewers alike. A general Star Wars category will enable CCs that would opt into that instead of the specific sub-category for their particular game gain some me visibility and discoverability, as we know that many people will do the searches with the base term of "Star Wars" in this case.
This is a great idea. There are well over 3 dozen Star Wars games at this point and making streamers stay in a very small and specific Star Wars category makes it harder to find new Star Wars streamers. Plus it might grow the existing communities of those games by getting more eyes on them, like SWTOR! I hope Twitch makes this a general category!
get'r done Twitch! ;)
Awesome idea Kittytreets!
With so much Star Wars content put out there now, this is a great idea!
I think this is an awesome and exciting idea to get more people involved or interested in the exciting and enjoyable experience that is Star Wars. May The Force Be With Us!
