Don't Punish New Streamers
SO for a new person like myself to stream with 1 viewer for hours just having fun it cripples my ability to get affiliate because i have streamed for 80 hours with one viewer getting to 3 average viewers means I would have to get over 10 viewers to bring the average up within a 30 day period I wish it was based on viewers per stream rather then viewers per hour
I think the point a lot of commenters are missing is that it is annoying for new streamers to have to choose between streaming a lot for fun, or only streaming when they can optimize their views.
Another possible solution would be if twitch averaged the viewers in the busiest 30 (or another number) hours of streaming to meet the qualifications.
facts I've had many 3 avg viewer streams but that past one view streams just ruin the avg
yea getting to an average of 3 is super annoying bc instead of counting per stream, it counts the average in the 40 PLUS HOURS I'VE STREAMED
So, hit all marks required for the month. Had multiple Twitch Emails saying I had "3, 5, 7, yada yada" Viewer counts. Yet when I open up my dashboard and check, it still says I only have 1.5/3....WTF???!! Why is this so broken for PS4 console users???
So much this, I have streamed 25 days in a row hit 11 viewers earlier today and can't get affiliate because I have an average of 1.72 viewers.
Tienes toda la razón, actualizar los requerimientos para hacer afiliado seria buena idea.
muy muy muy de acuerdo, en mi caso es algo parecido y ahora tengo que esperar una semana para que se me quite un mal stream que tuve a ver si ya califico para el afiliado. https://www.twitch.tv/poxeroo
i completely agree with this
post on other social medias, promote your streams, tell people about yourself, be unique, mess around with customization of your channel, etc. Big streamers didn't get big by chance they put in their work.
i agree i have been grinding the average for months i have everything else but the 3 average is just a Paine and i am getting to the point of leaving twitch possibly for fb gamming i am trying to make a life out of this but it seams harder than dirt to accomplish affiliate due to the 3 average you need in a month
Hi. I understand everyone's frustrations. I to have not got Affiliate. I have streamed for over 1000 hours. SO...ya...@Twitch your algorithm is messed!
JohnWickHitman you sure seem to have a giant superiority complex for some with a movie character as their channel name.
Stream less, reach out on Twitter, promote your stream.
I had the same issue, 1.89 viewers at 80hrs streamed. I stopped streaming everyday, promoted my steam and reached out to people more to engage my profile.
Stop streaming for a few days and let the hrs decrease and then return.
i have 1 follower and avg of 1.6 after about 59H 45M of streaming and at 577 total views :) 301 live views what ever that means.. ya.. you're all doing alot better then i am granted i stream without a web cam. correction ive streamed ( according to achievement) 106 hours and it seems only having an avg of 1.6 viewers is holding me back >.<
I'm sorry, but this is BS. Those of you saying stream @ different times...really, you have no ******* clue what I do in my day. I stream the same everyday, as that is the only time I can stream. Not my fault to many ****** viewers think that the only thing they can watch is some twatwaffle running round spamming bullets at another twatwaffle. I stream real games, that require more thought processing, and NO, I don't sit there giving my stupid ******* opinion about politics, the game, or any of that other horse **** those "big" ******* ******** streamers do. Do you go to a movie and like people talking incessantly?? Then WTF would you want that **** in a stream??? STFU, play the ******* game.....Quit viewing a channel for a split second and leaving "because" you think it's boring. Maybe you would find out the game is actually a good one....This "3" count needs to be tossed and something else used!!! ******* TWITCH is becoming a POS, as it's kills small streamers faster than it makes them....Yet, ******* streamers can stream copyrighted material, football games LIVE, and not be "COPYRIGHT" infringed, and make the quota easily.....Small streamers need help...JMO, ************ if you don't like it...
The average viewers requirement is pretty dumb indeed. I’m at 67 followers and have 381 hours of total stream time, I started in June 2020, yet I barely get any viewers, it’s kinda bs tbh, many people are truly really hard and their best and yet they cannot succeed because of this really dumb requirement. the maths of twitch aren’t correct either, last month I had around 4 viewers every stream I did, yet it gave me 2.1 viewers on average. Pretty dumb imo.
You should play popular games so people can discover you channel.
The main argument I see here is about how harder it is for someone who streams for a long time versus those who stream just a few hours. One tip you can do to alleviate this problem is to have multiple streams in one day instead of one long stream. When I made affiliate I was streaming live at the time. My current streamed had crashed due to a connection issue and 30 min after I got the stream back up I got notified of my acceptance. Also if you notice a time period where you constantly don't have viewers may don't stream at those times till after you make affiliate. These are just ideas. Of course the best thing to do it network with other streamers and/or get your friends to join your streams.
I dont say this to be mean, but what have you done to socialize with other streamers? social medias? make highlight reals? actually watching and interacting in other streams? and lastly, you dont get to decide if your content is good, thats the viewers decision. your not being punished, you just need to work for it. nothing is free!
