    Do you know how ignorant and obnoxious it is to call people broke? To say 'just get a job!' like it's the easiest thing in the world? To be completely ignorant of people's circumstances other than your own and your fellow priviliged peers? Maybe there's someone in the community who has a job, but works on minimun wage and can't spare a dime that isn't for his family. Grow up; just because you live in comfort now you talk shit? Appreciate your privilige and understand that even though you can afford things others can't. I'm not American yet it seems I'm wiser to the poverty situation than you guys are; life is damn hard, help a brother.

    Normally this would be true. But we're talking about 3 dollars. If you're so tight you can't afford 3 dollars then why the hell are you wasting your time watching a stream about games? Seems like a pretty low priority - you've got other stuff to worry about.

    And, I might mention that you can still WATCH (the important part!) for free! So even if you're so tight you can't afford 3 bucks you can still enjoy a top-level tourney.

    The point of view you present is entirely egocentric and doesn't reflect any acknowledgement whatsoever of the sacrifices, investments, and efforts of others.

    Grow up.

    The whole "problem" here seems predicated on the ugly modern mantra "You Deserve It!" You don't deserve shit.

    ^ This!

    Seriously, QQ harder if you don't like being able to chat.

    At least you get to WATCH FOR FREE.

    Use the popout mode. Worked excellently for me last night: SCR looked like a professional TV production as I ran the popout mode fullscreen. :tup:

    I actually run HDMI from my PC to my living room TV, and watch streams there. HD, sound system, no chat.

    I should pay the $3 and not chat just to spite OP. :lol:

    Setting up those equipment for streaming is no joke.

    I've seen the stream chats before and I can't get to watch the video properly due to facepalming. Luckily on TwitchTV there's an option to make it invisible. I'd rather watch the archived version on YouTube. :lol:

    Stream chat is nothing more than a waste of bandwidth. If people want a healthy discussion just go to the forums.

    I remember waiting for people to post on SRK update topics during Evo back in 05-06 when we had no streams.

    Man Remember when people used to actually talk about the game in streams, and sp00ky actually played fighting games, and streamers would actually treat the chat and their viewers as though they had merit in a dialectical fashion, and things were 'Arturoisms' instead of 'FGC culture'?

    Way to ruin everything guys.

    Man like I said I used to be a PJS regular, this is exactly what I miss about streams now-a-days. I fucking loved the back and forth conversations of every little move that happened on the stream.

    I was already closing down chat windows even before all this so I won't be missing anything. Although this is pretty funny to me seeing all the moaning and crying going on about this. Besides, all everyone does is just spam the same crap over and over again and let's be honest, everyone just wants to be the first person to type "CALL SPOOKY" whenever a stream has a problem. Not to mention all the other stupid crap going on. It's kind of like YouTube comments if you think about it.

    i don't think it's the same thing. stream chat is a race against time. each person in there knows that unless their message is shocking or attention-grabbing in some (usually idiotic) way, it'll get lost in the traffic and won't be seen by anyone. that's what motivates people to be as stupid as possible and turns it into a competition to see whose message is retarded enough to be read by more than one person. it also explains why there's a direct relationship between number of viewers and stupidity of messages. this is my take on it anyhow. youtube isn't really limited by time in this way, and its system of having the highest rated comments at the top is probably a good idea.
    This message will self-destruct.

    I was thinking among the lines of, "hey, someone already quoted the line I wanted to quote from the video. Now I can't get any thumbs up and have my name immortalized as being the top comment!" if you get what I'm saying. Cheers!

    I watch streams for the stream, not to chat.  At least that's free for viewers.

    Had to stop reading after awhile to say this...and maybe it's been mentioned but has no one seriously considered how this effects stream chat as a whole and not just getting rid of monsters?

    I watch a stream, I talk about what's going on, sometimes see people I know or converse with the chat. When it's a big event I subscribe to show my support and I do like the subscriber emoticons and insignia..but 5$ a month on every stream is too high a price for stuff like that to be worth it. Subscriber only chat would definitely put me off of actually subscribing. Mods are there, you can usually find mods for free. Hell I'd mod the shit out of any stream if someone wanted to trust me and while it might be hard I still don't like the idea of poverty chats. The chat function just seems to set this generation apart, I'd rather watch a stream than a televised tournament.

    If it happened every once and a while that's one thing, but for multiple tournaments it isn't a small subscriber fee. Mostly when it's multiple channels and paying for a month won't cover more than one tournament. I wouldn't cry over it, just save my money.

    I wanna weight in here, but I'm not sure how to proceed. Let me try and put this in a way that my intended audience will understand...

    >implying 4chan is the entire Internet
    >implying that you're a part of the FGC
    >implying that you don't just want to keep trolling for free
    >implying that hype is "Kappa" and "Spooby Please"

    Either pay up or go the fuck away. I'd prefer you did the latter, but I can see some benefit from the former, too.
