Give streamers/mods control of the raid notification
Recently, small raids (under 5 viewers) stopped showing up in chat, which excludes small streamers from getting recognized by the streamer. For large streamers it makes sense to set the limit to a higher number, but smaller streamers may want to acknowledge even a 1 or 2 person raid. Letting mods change this setting on the fly will prevent a possible raid notification spam
Yes, please change this as suggested. It disenfranchises the smaller streamers, and can cause perception of offense when a small raid isn't welcomed.
Yea, this is the worst.
Smaller channels that only get 1-5 viewers have to grind an achievement for raiding people, only to not get a notification or a thank you for doing so.
This is messed up, and also I want to thank EVERY SINGLE person that ever hosts/raids me, but I don't get the notifications from my personal overlays so I don't see it until a minute or so later after paying attention in my matches...
This sucks. Please fix this back to letting us decide whether we want an alert or not by letting us have the original system of ALL RAIDS show.
I absolutely agree that it should be the streamer's choice whether or not they want the notification of <5 raid to show up. It happened in my stream that someone raided but the alert didn't go through and it just confused me and everyone watching. I want to know when someone raids, even if it's with just 2 or 3 people. Please make it optional? :)
I feel that the smaller viewer ship raid numbers is important especially for smaller raiders and smaller communities. This I see the best way to allow for mataining spam bot raid issues and still acknowledge smaller channels as if this isn't sorted as some one who wants to stream I see it as as why bother about raiding which is the most import way to build a community through exposing yourself to others and building rapport
It is weird to me that Twitch doesn't already have something like this, when some of the alert extensions do have user-set restrictions on raid alerts.
Yes, let the streamer/mods decide if they want to allow smaller raids or not. This 5 viewer minimum only hurts small streamers and does not affect big streamers at all. If someone with 3 viewers gets raided by 3 viewers, their viewership has now doubled. It's exciting for them even though the raid was small.
It's bad for both sides. Seemingly unannounced change and unknown to nearly everyone. From a 2 person minimum to a 5 person minimum for the raid alert to show in chat.
Streamers don't get to welcome new arrivals and may appear as if they are ignoring the raid.
Raiders can feel like they aren't wanted and why bother raiding unless you have double digits (there's no way for them to know the limit is 5).
I can share this from today. I messaged a raider after checking the activity list before a stream ended and saw they had just raided with a party of 3, a few mins before. I explained the change with twitch, the limit of 5 ppl raids and apologised on behalf of the streamer for not acknowledging it.
I got this later.
"Oohh that’s okay! Thank you for letting me know! It was the first time I raided so I wasn’t sure if it worked. Thank you sooo much."
