Big name streamer servers

WarrantyzWarrantyz Member, Alpha One
I’m curious, would you rather play on a server with no big name streamers or one with big name streamers, and why?

    i'd be fine with any besides asmongold, not because i dislike him but because of his community...it's like one giant cod lobby in his chat

    Most of the big streamers will probably congregate on one server which makes it even worse tbh. I wouldn't mind having one or two big name streamers but all of them is just gonna be perma drama and followers brigading and whatnot. So nah

    I would watch out for servers that mega guilds go to. Streamers don't impact the server as much.

    This was much more on-topic and entertaining than yours truly was expecting!

    Ultimately, I don't give a crap if I'm on the same server as a streamer, or not. I probably won't purposefully avoid such servers, but definitely won't be seeking them out.

    The fact that I know Asmongold will be given the most legendary loot possible, that he'll be one of the few with a dragon mount, and that he'll be assassinated randomly, but then get the best gear and pwn his adversaries as he trash talks them...

    It would be ok.

    I plan on making a spreadsheet of the largest streamers I can find that intend to play Ashes and choosing the server with the least amount of streamers on it.

    I have nothing against streamers. I just don't want to minimize the server congestion I have to deal with.

    I did joke in a past thread that a server with mandatory nudity would solve the issue(To be clear there is no nudity in Ashes to my knowledge). A suggestion that makes more since for Mortal Online 2, but I would gladly deal with a bunch of excess human anatomy over long load times...

    I would try to stay as far away as possible from so called content 'creators' and the mostly ridiculous communities that surround them.

    On that note have they all been given free access to the earliest of alphas yet?

    None. I think the whole "streamer" nonsense is way out of control and utterly pointless. Why people get off on watching other people play games, is beyond me.

    Please do share that when the time comes! Could be a valuable resource!

    @Vhaeyne I would also like access to this list. If we are going back in time to a game that is community based, talk to other humans, get to know your friends and your enemies, blacklisting players, creating true arch rivals, building up your surroundings, making friends, and celebrating huge accomplishments as a team.....then I would like to do this the same way it was done long ago....without massive streamers that have 10s of thousands of chat spamming REEEEEEEEEEEE screamers.

    I understand that gaming has evolved with the internet and in many ways it is great. Streamers definitely have potential in the industry to help build the community and bring out the best in people but unfortunately this is not often the case. I can't even stand the chat while watching the monthly livestreams from Intrepid. If that is who our community currently is, we have a long road ahead.

    Main character, no. A heavily roleplayed alt that ignore/deny anything out of Verra, maybe.

    Once you make that google doc I would love a link to it!

    Assuming people don't consider such a list to be a form of Doxing I don't think I would have a issue sharing the list. If people are opposed to such a list being public I would consider doing a server "forecast" based on the numbers I came up with for "Server congestion", and leave it at that.

    We got a few years out on this still, I just want to be able to make a good decision on what server to play on.
    WOW Classic was a mess for my friends and me. We had to reroll on a new server at level 35ish because streamer congestion was so bad. We actually lost a friend in the process (Kind of funny, but true).

    There is a lot to think about here. If such as list had a lot of eyes on it. The list could have the opposite effect. I am not 100% sure what I will do. These are tricky waters to navigate.

    After playing on Faerlina (the designated streamer server on WOW Classic), I'd rather not play on a 'streamer server'. There's good and bad things about them. They're typically good if you are looking for content outside of what the game normally provides, like events organized by the streamer. That isn't to say that community events NEVER happen, its simply easier for them to happen when there's a leading voice behind them. It does harm the overall community of the server, though.

    If these streamers make their intentions public in terms of what server they will play on, then no reasonable person would think this.

    That said, the internet is full of unreasonable people.
