    Wow holy shit dude, "I know that in your dream world events that aren't streamed don't actually exist"

    You know how much of a douche you made yourself look like there? lol. So is this what the shoryuken forums are actually like or can I get better person to discuss this topic with.
    Sorry for not feeling any sympathy for stream monster problems. If you don't care enough about the games to actually compete in them and not just watch your daily video game soap opera then feel free to ignore my suggestions.

    If you really feelin it, you can just buy it. It's only 3$. That's not a fortune at all.
    Yeah sure, personally I can. But a lot of people can't or just don't feel like doing it. Which in turn limits the amount of people you will see talking and getting hype by a lot, and in turn lowers the overall hype of the stream IMO. I am just trying to defend a more free and open FGC stream feel that I get from these events. I feel if it's goddamn socal regionals starting this trend in the FGC streams are going to get a lot more boring.

    Now the stream chat is actually readable, less spammers, no hey-spooky, no 895. Don't get me wrong, I find some of the stream monsters hilarious, just not at a major event where there's a thousands of them flooding the chatline.

    Whatever, why would anybody be butthurt about that. It's adds to the hype when the chat is going fast and crazy, have you ever watched VGCW?


    It adds hype if you're an idiot. I usually turn them off anyway unless its to clown on people playing (at least when I was watching them).

    I guess I am the only one who likes the sight of seeing a stream chat explode with hype when something crazy happens. I am the only one that isn't an elitist butthurt faggot even when people do use Kappa after every word and spam FGC memes, honestly it's not annoying to me, it reminds me I am apart of this FGC stream monster ocean of hype. Sure it isn't perfect, sure there are trolls, assholes, meme spammers. But at the same time it's great, it's actually exciting to see so many people react to whats going on.

    Whatever I guess, just the stepping stones to a more streamlined and boring FGC.

    It seems you have a really cynical opinion about people on the internet, especially when its completely anonymous. Truth is most of those people you see saying dumb shit is just a normal dude not being serious. Honestly there are bad apples everywhere, but most of the time these people are just normal dudes just talking shit because they have the freedom to. And honestly I see less hate and more just random and mildly amusing comments. Honestly giving that freedom to speak is in stream chat is better for the community than limiting it. The humor and non-seriousness of it all sets it apart from other fucking boring streams like Starcraft and Dota.
    - Who is standing at the "doorway" to these streams telling anyone watching for the first time that the guy posting "The N word" in all caps every 30 seconds is doing that ironically?
    - Yes there are bad apples everywhere, but you don't give them a microphone and allow them to be the face of your community.
    - Yes, they are doing it because they have the freedom to, but why on earth should they have the freedom harass and offend people?
    - As someone already mentioned the fighting games are what set fighting game streams apart from starcraft streams.
    - Just go to another chat and say stupid things there while you watch the stream and let the chat that goes along with the main stream not be filled with garbage. No one is even trying to take away your ability to be or socialize with morons, just don't do it at the place that people trying to help the community grow are directing traffic toward.

    It's sad that this thread was even started, even sadder to see how cheap people are over $3. Really?

    But hey, that's what people like to do these days: complain about everything while supporting nothing.

    Gonna be honest, I'd never pay even one cent for a chat room, especially since nowadays I only view streams if they're majors or if I'm somehow involved in the stream.

    Man I like it simply because it keeps the retards who spam, and do stupid shit away. Next go and support your scene and actually get out to the events if you want that real hype. The hype on the chat is artificial as fuck! It's good for a few chuckles, but nothing compares to actually being there.

    Also really you can't pay 3 bucks?

    Yes those streams are boring as fuck, but they don't have inherintly going on in the background. the enviroment for the most part is squeaky clean, which is the reason why I don't like it. FGC is naturally rowdy and insanely awesome, you are just trying to create artificial hype from what you see, and believe me as a former stream monster (as in I used to watch streams all the damn time) the chat didn't do anything for me. It was watching the action, and immediate reaction of the players and crowd that did it for me. The chat monsters now a days are a bunch of clones with no original fucking brain processes that spew inane shit. Back in the day like the old school PJS days, we reacted, and not only that we also questioned why what happened when it happened. Believe me I like the chat, but I don't like it in it's current form. It's complete and utter shit.

    I can't spam 1 line comments with an emote at the end, I gotta complain because a private chat is obviously more important than the stream itself.
    Weeks ago... I was playing Marvel vs Capcom 3. I was just training, standing at the wooden platform, floating on the river of the Demon Village. I was at the end of this path the platform was going, after that it went further, and I came to a cemetery, and there was a lake. Very secluded, and there were tall trees all around. The music stopped playing. It was dead silent. Gorgeous... and across the lake I saw from far away... a beautiful blue woman, standing in front of the lake... but she was crying...

    What if instead of paying for chat, you paid to watch two 720p+ streams that broadcasted for 12 hours a day for three days. Would you pay $3 for that?

    Nope. I can be cheap as fuck at times. Streams often get uploaded to youtube and I seldom even watch streams in 720 since they often lag more often for me than at 480. I mean, supporting communities is one thing but just throwing money out is another.

    half of the reason fighting game streams are fun is because of the crazy ass chat.

    If half the reason you enjoy fighting game streams has nothing to do with fighting games, then I think you can legally be classified as a troll.

    I have to check the statutes, but I believe 50% or higher lack of interest in the subject matter is the legal threshold.

    Go do something else, maybe?

    Slow mode usually calms down the rampant meme spamming, but if they want to set it to Subscribers Only then that's fine too. The streams do cost money to run and if you enjoy them, it would be a nice gesture to show your appreciation with a subscription. At least non-subscribers can still watch the stream. That would be something to be upset about.

    I'm not paying for any stream chat. I'm just saying.

    While I was also slightly dissapointed I couldn't see the chat it didn't make the stream any less bad.

    Seeing Marc Teddy of WNF single handedly win with Guy was hype.

    Seeing Latif get absolutely destroyed by Infiltration was still hype (That's where I missed chat. I did kinda wanna troll and say "SOOOOOO FREEEEEEEEEE!!!!").

    Of course, the OP does realize we have threads here on SRK dedicated to talking about the Marvel and SF4AE streams right?

    First thing I do when I open a FG stream is I fucking HAMMER the "pop out" button on the play controls and IMMEDIATELY close the original stream page so I don't have to be exposed to the full on retardness of an FG stream chat for even a second. Not only are the chats always just full of stupid people with absolutely nothing of value to say aside from spouting "funny" memes, it actually lags the stream itself due to the ammount of shit getting typed in the chat at a machine gun rate. So if a stream's chat costs money to view and is for payers only, then God fucking bless and thank Jesus too while you're at it I say.

    Then you have no right to complain. But get used to it because Spooky is doing the same thing at majors, and others will follow suit.

    If every streamer switched to it there would be a dramatic improvement in all types of areas surrounding this community.

    Like I said in some other FGD thread, it is a horrible thing that when you post a link on facebook or twitter to any stream; that your brother, aunt, coworker, potential event sponsor, etc. might click on that the first thing they see is the wall of hatred and idiocy that passes for stream chat. Just see if you can use a secondary stream for chat that what everyone did during Canada Cup. This way people who are checking a stream for the first time don't think the community is dominated by racists and morons right before they decide never to watch another one again. It also help support the people making the stream possible.

    give them a link to an embedded stream on Eventhubs, thats what i watch.
    This is a terrible idea, half of the reason fighting game streams are fun is because of the crazy ass chat. Now it's some deluded fucking boring subscriber only circle jerk.

    Hype has been drastically lowered and now any chances of considering to donate or sub has gone down the toilet because pulling off a move like this just fucking sucks. Not everybody wants to set up a paypal and crap just to burn 3 dollars just to be able to express your hype. What a worthless purchase.

    Also yeah Esports prophecy is becoming true yadda yadda. I just wouldn't expect this from the FGC who are usually cool about this kind of stuff.

    speak for yourself, the chat doesn't make me hype at all. I get hype to see high-level gameplay, not to see a bunch of people spamming. Are you sure you actually like fighting games? or do you just watch streams for the chat. Because i feel like a lot of the stream monsters spend more time watching the chat than the game, lol.


    i'll admit, some of the stream monsters are hilarious and very creative, but 99% of them are just repeating crap over and over, trying to be funny, but they don't know how.. It's like Spooky said: there's top players and low tier players, there are top-tier stream monsters and low tier stream monsters
