    Although I understand the need of banning him, this solution is really not one we want :/

    We're actually lucky these bots all have the same sort of name because we can identify them easily.
    If twitch does something like you suggest the bot will simply use another name the next minute. And possibly random names which would make him way harder to track :/

    Blocking the mass follow possibility is, to me, the number one thing they should have done for a long time. No legit user needs to follow this fast this many users.

    "Allow streamers to hide their follow button [to prevent follows] when they think a bot/ hate raid is incoming."
    I don't think this would help much. Such bots are not using twitch interface to follow. And once the bot hits you it's too late to disable the follow feature anyways and i don't believe you have much ways of seing it coming :/

    The max account limitation per one mail is definitely something they should have done a long time ago. But not sure it would stop people like the one(s) behind "hoss". They probably already automated emails creation. Still it would make things harder for most of these toxic people.

    But what i understand the least is why they didn't limit the follow rate to avoid a bot following hundreds of people per second.
    This wouldn't solve the problem but drastically limit their reach.
    Besides, they disabled the follow/unfollow API endpoints to avoid mass follow/unfollow possibilities so it would make sense to limit them for a "user" perspective as well.
    I don't see any legit case to have a follow rate higher than 1 every 10s or so...

    This really is something that i'd like to get too.
    Not everyone can afford having a server running all time long to get all the necessary things via EventSub, and having the possibility to sync the potentially missed data on startup would be a perfect workaround.

    It would also make it easier to grab these data without EventSub which is a nice API but technically hard to implement on tools.
