Legacy emote slots
How about "legacy" emote slots?
If you have subbed for a year = you get an extra emote, 2years = a second emote etc.
You unlock them by either having a streak of 1 year/ 2 years etc (and then the user can keep using them even if they aren't subbed anymore. Just like unlocked bit emotes that stick with the user.)
Or unlock by being (with breaks, but in total) subbed 1 year/ 2 year etc and only get access to the emote when you are subbed.
Would be a cool reward for long time supporters.
Original idea by Twitch user @Chromerian_
This would be amazing! Especially if you could pick which emotes were unlocked at what marker? That way the ones that are the most in-jokey, community shenanigans can be most appreciated by the people who have been around longest while the more-appealing-for-EVERYone emotes could be used elsewhere :D
This is a very good idea to reward constancy, I love it
It would be nice for affiliates and partners to receive one extra emote slot per active(!) year streamed. If certain criteria are met, a streamer unlocks an emote slot. This way it offers a loyalty reward for the creator and is not easily obtained and also takes a long time to unlock. When a streamer takes a long break, they will not be eligable for an extra emote slot for that year, but they can try again the next streamed year. That way it becomes a bit more exclusive but a nice reward for consistenct creation on the platform.
I would like the ability for a channel to have an emote tied to the months subscribed.
There should be two options to go with the implementation, the ability to allow non-current subscribers to still use the emote and the ability to set the same emote for all subscriber month goals or a different one.
This helps reward people who subscribe to a channel for extended periods with more than just a sub badge. Creators could have a wildly different emote at each month, or choose to have an emote that evolves as their subscribers reach typical month goal.
In a way these would likely take design principles from sub badges but apply them to emotes. If creators enable the option it also allows non-current subscribers to still retain a small benefit from their tenure and allow them to use a specific, exclusive emote.
For example, 1 month may be a wooden tombstone emote, at 2, 3, 6, 9 and 12 months the emote would be changed to a fancier tombstone. In this way subscribers to that channel could have an evolving RIP emote that shows off their own contribution.
Given the amount of emotes this adds to a channel this feature may be best suited for partners.
Hi Twitch Team,
I think it would be nice if there would be the possibility to allow users to keep one emote permanetly after being sub for like 12 months in a channel, to receive a further reward for loyality and the money you spent.
It would be really cool if Twitch added emote slots for sub streaks. People who subscribe would have more incentive to continue their sub if they unlocked an additional emote at 6mo, 1yr, 2yrs etc. It would be a cool way to give longtime subs an exclusive emote that they don't necessarily have to be a tier 3 sub to use.
