Follower Raid Emote
The new beta test of Follower Emotes is great - and look forward to seeing it widely implemented across the platform.
I think a great idea to help with the community aspect of emotes would be to designate ONE of those follow emotes as a 'raid emote'. Something that all followers could use when you raid a channel.
I recognize that the likely implementation would mean that one of the five follower emotes would then be usable across the platform... And that likely goes against the core concept of the follower emote test - but still worth considering!
Being able to use Follower Emotes was the most common feedback I've gotten from my followers. I agree that having one or two of these Follower Emotes be available across channels would be a great community tool.
A free emote everyone who is followed to you can use once for free after a raid in the person who gets raided's chat as well as gifted subscriber emotes you unlock for gifting enough subscription's in someone's chat similar to bit emotes possibly for 100 gifted 250, 500, 1000, & 2500 or something along those lines to reward people who give out crazy amounts of subs
I do agree it would be nice if followers could use these emotes for raids and stuff so they can still feel like they are part of the community and take part in the raid like everyone else. It also lets everyone be on the same page on using one set emote to raid.
Yeah, I agree, there should be one global (maybe followers-only) emote for each channel, which would be a great channel-promoting tool
"Oh, that's a cool emote, who has it (looks at emote name), I'll go see them".. This is especially true for smaller channels that don't have many subscribers and emote slots, so they're stuck using other channel's emotes that most of their raid party probably don't have
One way for people to feel part of a community is being able to join a raid and express that they've come from a stream with the community. Being unable to share the same emotes singles followers out during raids so having a raid emote for both followers and subscribers would be ideal.
The introduction of follower emotes is great but as other people have suggested it forces a hard cut between where emote can be used. In addition to suggestions like "Allow subscribers to use follower emotes everywhere" I would like to add the following idea:
Allow 1 emote to be assigned as a "raid emote" usable by followers and subs alike, but usable across all of twitch.
Such a great idea!
Yesss, this is a really solid idea Zach! I can get down with that, very useful.
This is a really good idea - and would ultimately bring more people together. I hate having two raid commands and I always feel it makes people feel bad for not being able to afford a sub. This is super cute :)
I love this! No more needing two commands and everyone can feel to be a part of it without having to spend channel points for a one day use.
Or just even a specified, approved Raid Emote would be an amazing new emote feature to all streamers.
