Solution to fixing the Raids/Hosts
I been seeing a ton of people raiding under 5 viewers as due to a recent change, they don't show up. I feel that that little action that says "all raids " in the settings under channel should be all raids, not only 5 or more ( if it is gonna be 5 or more maybe make it a setting "5 or more raiders" . I feel streamers should be the one to choose if this is a change is something for their channel.
That's my personal opinion I just feel horrible not seeing someone raid when and due to API for Stream labs / Stream elements pulling from the chat ends up not showing it when it does happen.
Limit hosts from showing up in chat unless they have 2 viewers would be another thing as well, since the only way they will have any viewers is if the channel is live at the time or it will show 0-1 viewers.
I did want to say as well since I did see the tweet about raid bot attacks on twitter that it wasn't raids it was host attacks to clear up on that little bit.
My idea would be make it so channels can't raid unless they are Live at the time of raiding that would clear up the bot issue if they are doing raids. ( link to twitch support tweet - https://twitter.com/TwitchSupport/status/1313975539682684929?s=20 )
Thank you for reading this bit of feedback and hope ya have an amazing day!
Re-add the REMOVED functionality for Hosts with 1 viewer to show on the feed. Guess what? If someone wants to create a fake account named "YouSuckMDF" and host people with that so that the alert plays, they can also create other 4 fake accounts and have them as extra viewers to achieve the same goal. This FORCIBLY REMOVED functionality does not help at all, it only harms visibility for small streamers.
I will say it again, this change only and exclusively causes harm
That is a point I´ve already experienced some times. And as BlazingPhoenix wrote, it creates the feeling to the raiders that the raided Streamer doesn´t want to be raided somehow.
I get a couple views per stream and it would be cool to take the to another friends channel to let them check it out
Please Twitch, this makes the raided streamers look bad and unappreciative of raids and won’t likely be raided again. Lino here was just raided today and didn’t notice until 10 minutes after. Enough time for the raiders to leave for not being noticed that they came in.
All raids should mean ALL RAIDS from streamers passing their viewership from a livestream.
