Predictions with Designated Ratios
As a small streamer, I noticed bets aren't really a viable option for me. Often when my viewers bet it isn't up against anyone at all or a very limited selection of people. This makes all bets very skewed or disproportionate to how they should be. I understand the point of predictions is to redistribute points, and not to create a new source for points, even so, I think if the streamer could set a ratio for options 1 & 2 that pays out no matter what it would really help small streams. To further explain what I mean, the idea I'm trying to get at is that the streamer/mods can go beyond setting just the bet condition and answers. They should also be able to set a ratio between the two options creating payouts that are available no matter how many people bet. This way small streamers with fewer channel points/people-watching can still create exciting predictions with a limited audience. I should also clarify when I say "create a ratio" I mean that if a streamer sets it as 60/40 ratio for 1 & 2, if option 1 wins the payout would just be a tad bit less than 2x, and would reward points to chatters according to how many they put in. This would take place without regard to the redistribution of points. Overall I think this could really help small streamers utilize predictions in the future!
Fully agree. I was excited to use the feature until I realized its designed for streamers with a sizable...and active...community. lol
Mods or owners should be able to control the payout rather than base it on number of users(or one users millions of points) voting for a specific option. A lot of the time it's easier to tell the outcome. It would be more fun and interactive for users if they knew they had to vote for the riskier option.
