However what I want to say about these streams. I just dont see the point of them. I can watch a lot of WoT streamers around the clock. So why would I watch this channle? Because of WG employee is playing? I mean that really does not offer anything new to the table.

I dont quit get the prupose of these streams to be honest. If someone from WG could answer me that question....

 

Got a similar feel. Plenty of good streamers out there.

 

Perhaps what would help it is to connect more with the average player? A sort of (advanced) tutorial channel?

Play classic tanks through streaming, showcasing the do's a don'ts with classic tanks in their roles.

By example:

-Stream gameplay in a KV-1, Stug III g; t-34(-85), hellcat, AT-2 and other classics. All tanks with well defined class roles & smooth to play for their tiers. Make it themed with the weekend events to make it more relevant.

 

If there's a TD special (like last weekend) stream gameplay with the Stug III G, AT-2, Borsig, Hellcat, Strv etc. Make an announcemnt about the themed gameplay in this thread (by example Ph3lan, or whoever runs it, announces the streamer will play mainly TD's this weekend on stream to celebrate the TD themed weekend)

 

I feel such approach would help the WG channel more.

Looking at the stream, it's easy to get the impression that actually using the feedback hasn't been done. The anniversary stream was well executed, but the normal ones are still kind of 'meh'.

 

The general playerbase apparently agrees. Some numbers from different dates, should be around 15-30 minutes into the stream:

Nov 29th: 113

Jan. 3rd: 178

Mar. 27th: 103

Jun. 16th: 61

 

It's not looking good, is it? Nice chances of winning tanks, though, I'll give you that.

Also, when WGEU decides to essentially ignore the forum for a week straight, it's not a great idea to only accept feedback regarding the football mode. Especially not when someone points exactly that out. Exactly why WGEU are bothering with a failed stream when they're ignoring the community is hard to tell. Too bad there's nobody to convince me that this isn't, in fact, due to incompetence (though the alternative is frankly worse).

1) it is a lot more then a week.

2) i hope it is incompetence.

It really takes something beyond incompetence to take it this far.

Arrows are pointing towards a terrible internal company structure that literally can't fix issues or be semi-flexible - which includes response to less-than-positive feedback on the forums.

 

Of course, the community staff (probably) do more than just post on the forums, and are prioritizing. Terrible idea if you ask me. If a random guy wants to check out how a game's doing (wants to start or pick up the game again) he's not gonna get his impression from some irrelevant stream or some annual, non-relevant event in goddarn Dorset. You'd think that they'd be interested in at least keeping us "whiners" busy, not even bothering with that suggests it doesn't really matter.

Probably realized it was doomed to fail. The reason you're not really hearing anything is evident by reading the posting history of the English community managers. Customer interaction is evidently not a priority of Wargaming anymore, despite previous promises.

The whole WGEU stream concept is a massive failure. It might be time to face it - beyond good chances to land a €35 participation prize it feels a bit pointless to watch.

We're almost ten months in, and the stream's struggling to break 100 viewers at times. I don't think anyone's surprised. It's even less surprising that WGEU seems to think it's worth spending time on entertaining a 100-viewer stream every week. Spending three hours supporting the community (and I'm not talking about the standard, light-hearted 'charm offensive' that we see when you claim to improve your ways) would've been less of a waste of time - and with the state of the forum that's saying a lot.

 

PS: Today was a missed opportunity for a decent Q&A session. Besides Ph3lan and what's-his-face Zapfhan, there was some Czech QA guy and NA's MeatheadMilitia - which as far as community efforts go at least appear to be more usable than some others. Surely the combined strength of those four could muster a decent response, right?

Judging from the feedback in this thread, I would imagine the staff would see fit to comment on it - and perhaps take measures in line with what's been said.

 

There's a lot of work that can be done with what you already have. Just having normal gameplay and some nice giveaways aren't enough to keep most interested - evidently. You need something to make it interesting to watch. It makes zero sense to spend three hours watching someone play tanks when you could get a better experience doing it yourself. Talk to us, be alive, and to it properly.

The streamers almost universally act like people who aren't really interested in their work and are injecting the bare minimum effort needed to get paid - aside from obviously artificial engagement with the viewers.

 

What is more surprising is that WGEU actually has an experienced streamer on their team, yet they still struggle to develop it. The very same streamer claims a background that should more than qualify him to understand how to appear interesting - and that's before you consider that this is a stream people tune in to voluntarily (aside from the nice giveaways).
