These ads are getting ridiculous
What was the idea with ads that automatically play in the middle of a stream. Here I am enjoying watching my favorite streamer during a big moment then all of a sudden they are not only minimized to a super small box in the top right, but the sound to their stream is cut off in favor of the ad. Twitch said during their new ads this would not happen and they also said the ads would be non-disruptive by appearing in a small box at the bottom of the stream... this is clearly not the case. Who thought these ads would be a good idea? They are getting in the way of watching streamers which is what we are all here to do. Wtf is this? Its getting to the point that I don't want to use twitch because they are trying too hard to get ads in the stream. Stop with these BS ads please.
I am getting so FED UP with all your ridiculous mid roll ads!!! Do you have ANY IDEA how ANNOYING it is to be watching a stream, then suddenly, WITHOUT WARNING ads start playing!! I miss content, or I will type something in chat and wait for a reply from the streamer OH but NOW AN AD STARTS and I MISS IT!!! This ANGERS me SO MUCH!! And Twitch is BRIBING streamers into running a full minute and a half every half hour to clear pre-rolls and make a much higher percentage! Which are also a problem!! I hate to lose new viewers because they just close it as soon as an ad comes on, and during a raid I miss the beginning of the raid!! SO ANNOYING!!! AT LEAST give us a HEADS UP BEFORE the ads start!!! Give us a COUNTDOWN 30 seconds prior so we know not to do something we don't want to miss!!! THINK about it a little bit! Your ads are SO AGGRESSIVE and they are VERY INVASIVE TO CONTENT!
The ad count is insane. Most streams I visit now, even when the streamer has enabled only pre-roll ads, I get multiple ads per stream and I'm done watching any more streams with forced ads. I don't mind pre-roll but these are not just pre-roll and it's a huge turn off. Your ads interrupt everything I'm here for and I absolutely do NOT care about what is being marketed. Monetize your platform, fine, but stop the rapid mid-roll ad nonsense, especially when the streamer has it disabled. Stop forcing us away from the platform with all this vapid advertising just so you can make fractions of a penny.
Just this week I watched a stream that rapid fired 14 ads in under 20 minutes and I know for a fact she has only pre-roll ads enabled. This isn't the only stream that's done that this week either, though that was by far the most egregious. That's entirely on you, Twitch. I CANNOT WATCH THE STREAM IF IT'S ALL ADS. It's beyond irritating and I will not engage with the content or the platform any more until you cease this stupidity.
