Hype Train Community Loot Box
Problem: Current Hype Train emotes are rarely updated, unlocked quickly, and seldom used.
Solution: The Community
Every Streamer picks one emote to be available globally in Hype Trains. Hype Train participants unlock one of the million+ emotes at random.
And then you lose access to the emote you unlocked after 30-days to not detract from the value of a direct sub to that streamer's channel.
In that realm of thought, this also works as a discovery feature. People might be curious about the channel whose emote they have unlocked - and go check them out. Perhaps they like the emote so much that they subscribe.
A community feature that supports said community!
While this would be an 'added' discoverability feature I don't believe that getting a hype train emote of a channel would lead to someone going to a channel and generating more revenue for the streamer and twitch.
Twitch is great for live but they lack what YT has with VODs and long form anytime watch content.
Zach here fails to realize what streamers really need and that is proper compensation in order to better incentivize them to stream more and generate more revenue.
not sure if the comment posted 17:29 on May 31 is being sarcastic but if not that's a terrible plan. Zach's idea is fantastic and we would love to see it implemented exactly as he has described it.
Any new feature i see I always want it to be tied into something like, to be eligible to have your community loot box featured you have to play 1 / ad per stream to normalize the experience.
good suggestion ❤
