More Emotes for Affiliate Streamers
I feel as a small streamer we dont get enough emote slots.
The 5 you unlock for 50 Subs, and the 2 extra for the Tier 2 and 3.
I feel like 10 emote slots would be a good fit for a affiliate streamer.
Not everyone gets partnered and i feel the emote slots are a bit unbalanced.
Of course this is how i see it. There could be a reason that i am not aware of.
But i feel with the recent changes smaller streamers arent really getting a chance.
I really feel like 10 (2 being the other Tier subs) Would be a good handle.
Or even opt out of The other 2 Tiers, )if they choose) and just have a Tier 1, and have 10 full emotes.
Talk about some happy affiliates!!
that's what I think, we "LITTLE" streamers, how do they pretend that we have 50 MONTHLY SUB? with 5-10 spectators? just to get 5 emotes .... FIVE.
I don't know why I didn't think of a paywall option, but that is an excellent suggestion, valkariye. They could do like $5 a slot and I bet they'd make a killing from all the affiliates who want more emotes. Not too pricey but still high enough for Twitch to make a nice extra chunk of funds with the volume.
I feel like Affliliates are limited in their growth because of the hard 5-emote cutoff. Sure there's the bit emotes and BTTV, but I wouldn't mind if the Tier 2 and 3 emotes only became available at Partner and get those slots over to Tier 1. I also wouldn't mind if Twitch gave Affiliates the one-time option to pay for a certain amount of emote slots to be added to Tier 1. That way, everyone has their own choice of whether or not they want emotes to be added or not.
Small channels are difficult to subscribe to, and even that is recognized as real-time aggregation rather than accumulation, so there are many difficulties in expanding the slots of emoticons.
Personally, the reason why there are fewer slots is not only greeting emoticons, but also smiling emoticons, crying emoticons, etc. It can't contain basic human emotions.
I hope it will be supported not only for partners but also for affiliated streamers.
I'm glad to see your consensus. Twitch would like a positive review.
I agree! Most times you see people sub or gift subs it's usually Tier 1, anyway.
Just giving affiliates half the opportunity that partners have would give us 35 tier slots and we got 7.
I would be happy to give up tier 2 and tier 3 subscriptions and have those 2 emotes slots at tier 1.
I think its hard for people to commit 9.99 and 24.99 just for an emote. Twitch wont change the pricing structure so for affiliates just get rid of them and give us 1 tier with more benefits
Yes, that would be great! Great value for the Subs, not just the affiliates. Double happy customers!
Being able to unlock more slots as an affiliate would be amazing for the affiliates as well as Twitch itself would be able to continue to profit from the revenue. Sure, everyone strives to be a partner, but some people have had amazingly supportive communities and should be able to have those high subpoint totals mean something more, even if to a lesser degree than a Partner.
A lot of smaller streamers don't have the means to grow partly due to the limitations put in place by Twitch where a new affiliate can only have ONE tier 1, ONE tier 2 and ONE tier 3 emote.
When a viewer subscribes to a channel they want to be rewarded with emotes to express themselves as well as join in on conversations, memes and other means that the stream host is using to engage their audience.
This idea is great but restricting smaller streamers to just a single emote in each tier doesn't give an incentive for viewers to subscribe when $5 only grants them access to one emote when other more established channels have 3, 4, 5 and beyond for the same price.
To get to the point, I think that smaller channels should be permitted THREE tier 1 emote slots to begin with as the $5 asking price for just a single emote does not appear worth it to a lot of viewers and hinders some content creators growth creating a paradoxical loop where channels can't reach 15 sub points for more slots if no one is willing to sub because they can't offer their audience value for their buck.
You could also add in the Sub Points don't reset when a Sub expires, so that this idea can also/instead be manifested, rather than having to more likely start over and over. Esp for small streamers.
I know it is soooo great to complete the goals and strive for it. But i think at the beginning affiliates streamer should have a little bit of variety about emotes.
We have one slot for every Tier and this is a little sad. Because I have emotes waiting to be added. I don't want to skip goals. Completing them always makes everyone happy. But just please would you give the affiliates the option to add at least 2-3 emote for Tier 1 subscription instead of one? It is a bit difficult to reach 25 subscribers to have 3 emotes at the beginning. If we have this variety, I feel like we can better accomplish the other emote goals and encourage more people to subscribe.
For those of us with very supportive communities we should be able to unlock more emote slots.
I most likely will not get partnered as i do not play games with high viewer counts but i have hit 200 sub points because of the support i receive.
I would like to be able to keep unlocking emote slots, currently the amount you can unlock is very low.
