Channel Point Multipliers
The point multipliers have recently changed so that it is fairer that if you are paying for a higher tier sub, you receive a higher multiplier. Unfortunately, as opposed to increasing the multiplier for higher-tiered, lower tiers had their multipliers drastically lowered to the point of not really being that different from a non-subscriber. Idk how it may look from the pov of Twitch Staff, but from a user, getting 12 points for passive watch time and 60 points for an active watch time bonus while a non-subscriber gets 10 and 50 points respectively just doesn't seem that fair. When the higher-tiered subs came out, it was initially designed for users who wanted to support streamers at a higher level (and as such a higher percentage of the subscription price would go to the streamer), but it has since been made fairer so that they actually are getting more for their money's worth, which was not the original intention of the higher tiers, but I understand it. Support your streamer more and get more from it at the same time.
I understand why it's plausible to give higher-tiered subs a higher point multiplier but I can't fathom why Twitch would need to take away from regular tier-1 subs in the process. As a subscriber, we are quite literally paying infinitely more than someone who isn't subscribed at all (unless they were gifted). While it makes sense for a higher-tiered sub to have a higher multiplier, it doesn't make sense for the multiplier of a subscriber (formerly 2x, now 1.2x) to be almost identical to someone who isn't subscribed at all (1x). The difference is negligible, and because of that, I'm humbly requesting that the tier-1 multiplier be restored to 2x and if Twitch wants to, they can make a higher multiplier for higher-tiered subs.
I completely agree. Maybe make Tier 1 subs have 2x points like they used too, Tier 2 subs have 3x points, and Tier 3 have 4x points. That would make it much more worth subscribing! Give people a more enticing reason to subscribe!
I agree with RotesWasser that the best solution would be to just let the streamer decide the multiplier. As a viewer I've just canceled all 3 paid subscriptions I had running because of this. This seems to be the only way to let Twitch know that this was a bad change. I will donate to these streamers with different payment methods though Twitch/Amazon won't get any more money from me until they revert this change or implement it in a better way.
This is such a stupid change. I would never pay for a higher tier and now I have as good as no incentive to even subscribe on tier 1.
why not make tier 3 multiplicator x4 instead?!?!
I canceled my subscription everywhere because of this change. Some of my favourit streamers got nice rewards for their points and now my sub feels worthless.
Why not let the broadcasters set the multiplier levels themselves? It seems like such a great solution. I don't want my viewers to feel pressured into higher tiers of subscriptions.
Agreed, perfectly said.
