"Air Drops” During Raids! (Or anytime) - (Revisited)
What if @twitch communities could “Air Drop” Bits, Gift Subs, Donations etc. during a raid?
A Streamer starts a raid & a timer begins & the viewers from the channel raiding “Fill the Air Drop” (A Crate/Giftbox etc.) & AFTER the raid begins but BEFORE the support drops, Twitch sends an alert to the top of the chat of channel being raided indicating ”Air Drop Incoming!” w/ a countdown timer & pic/gif of the Crate/Giftbox w/ a parachute attached to it & when the countdown hits 0, ALL that support drops into the chat of the (small 🥺) channel being raided.
You could even add effects going off in the chat (The raiders channels' personal channel emotes, Fireworks etc..) & when the support finally drops it would show who supported, what kind of support they gave (bits, gifted subs, donations etc..) and how much support directly in the chat of the channel that is being raided.
Just imagine a small streamer alone with no one or just a couple of people watching. You’ve seen how excited smaller streamers get when they are raided. Now imagine an explosion & flurry of support that drops in their chat as they are being raided!? So many tears will come from this idea but they will be tears of joy!
There will be so many amazing reactions you see from raids with "Air Drops" and the communities that were generous enough to support would be able to see it all in real time! Twitch would be happy, small streamers would be happy, and communities/viewers would be engaging/interactive and entertained. It's a win/win with 0 downsides.
Let’s help millions of smaller streamers. (Cause even though this idea would DEFINITELY help everyone, I came up with it with smaller streamers in mind!) #bladesideas
I also tweeted this out. @InventorBLADES on twitter. Let me know your thoughts on here or there and vote and share, share, share! 🗳
P.S. I should mention as with all my ideas, this should absolutely be optional for the streamer and have these choices available in settings:
“Allow air drops during raids”
“Do not allow air drops during raids”
“Prompt me to either air drop or not during the start of each raid”
Thank You again @inventorBLADES for such grate ideas
I think while this idea is fun- but it doesn't... do much? It seems like putting a financial burden or expectation upon people who want to raid into someone else. If people raiding into a channel liked the content they would subscribe, follow, drop bits, tip, etc- but now they're giving money to someone they don't know, potentially investing in content they do not like or want to support because of another streamer's endorsement/idea.
It's a great idea. Benefits the community by allowing streamers to share the wealth...I don't really see any cons to this.
Dear Twitch, take a closer look at this.
S7TX TV channel shared this suggestion on his live today I'm here to show my support.
Came across this idea. It sounds awesome and everyone would benefit from this. Please Twitch prove we can have nice things like this? The very least run a beta and see how it goes.
Great idea blades! This would def help small streamers like myself, and motivate to make more streams.
Thank you guys that have been voting and leaving comments! I love the reactions to this idea!
This idea fits Twitch culture perfectly. Please implement!
This would be such a fun and great idea!
What a fantastic idea. I think this absolutely has the potential to help give some attention to smaller streamers!
Fantastic idea that I would love to see implemented on Twitch!
Absolute GEM. someone get this man a job on their board because these fresh ideas are what is NEEDED for the community of small streamers.
It would be cool
What an Excellent idea why don't everyone drop this guy 5000 bits ;)
good idea blades
Definitely a good idea, that would grow the feeling of community even more!
i loved the idea help those that try stream encouraged them n reward them
