    Yep so in reality about a handful of top streamers can pull in near million views.

    Goes to show how ridiculously influential just 2 or 3 top streamers can be when it comes to twitch numbers.

    They can push just about any game to top spot if they want to.

    Yeah as already noted by some,this is not about the game but way more about the groupies who follow streamers around like it is something COOL to do.
    The only reason i use Twitch is to learn something about a game,i couldn't care less who is streaming.
    I worry about the new generation of kids growing up that think it is cool to be a Twitch groupie or a Facebook junkie or staring at their cell phones 24/7.

    Why do you think Apex paid Ninja $1M to stream at release?

    This has been the generation for the past 5 or so years unfortunately. People just experience things through other people which isn't good for them or the people they are 'supporting' in the long run, because eventually these guys quit/take breaks, then what? Most cases they try and find another because they feel 'lost.'

    Is still 1.1 mil viewers. Top viewers accounted for 500k or so, and 600k spread across 19k streamers.

    Whatever you guys are saying, we are talking about 1.1 MIL viewers. If that's not enough for , how you guys love to say it, a 15 years old game, then nothing really can make you .. happy!

    Or maybe since most people could not login the game they decided to check out what was going on? Crazy....I know.

    Its all about the rushing right now guys streaming for 24,28, 30- hours trying to get 'world' firsts. Thing is none of the streamers are even close to top of level leader boards. Most of the streamers are 26-28 top guys are probably close to 40 by now.

    Its A.D.D. central basically watching guys follow some farming blueprint of just farm instances or elites. Killing the same mobs over and over again. So its also built right into the the BR mentality of loot and die basically. No real game play at all. Just rush around and kill until you die. Except with WoW you dont really die unless youre trying to kill a boss 5+ levels higher than you then you can wipe a group.

    Best part is most of these guys streaming were maybe 7-10 when the game first came out. But lets face it this is the most hype the game has gotten since Burning Crusade. So its been awhile.

    Yeah, it's like since when have human beings ever thought it was cool to follow popular people doing stuff? Something is seriously wrong with society today.

    Nope he got kicked from the server the and could not get back on lmfao. No special treatment for him lol. 

    He was crying like a child, pathetic man imo. Type in WOW classic kicked from server.

    1.1m watching streams, i can only imagine that is a small fraction of the people who were in the queues to log in, fortunately i didn't have that problem, logged in at around 5 am, logged out at 9pm... forgot what that was like  :p

    This is actually amazing. Its like a social experiment. I doubt we never had a situation like this in the gaming industry before.

    And what is most amazing, and a reflection of the world we live in, is that all the actual hate, doomsayers and negative messages come from the devs. Most of the "reviewbombing", lowering spectations and forecasting of rapid stagnation comes from the people that make the game.

    Personally I have never seen something like this. Its thrilling and nuts. I cant wait to see new Q&A and news/forum responses from the devs. Flaming, acid spitting, customer abuse, looking down on players (when not directly saying that they are a bunch of morons that dont want what they want)... never seen such trolling before. Its like they cant wait for this endeavour to fail, working so hard in making it a failure it seems they need it to fail.

    While I don't find it thrilling in the same way you do, I agree with you about it being a first. The idea of releasing vanilla has always been absurd to people. There are people commenting on these boards, that are prolific on these boards, that said it would never happen because of x y and z (why call them out personally). And it is absurd exactly because it is unprecedented and expensive. And yes, people hate on WoW and Blizzard in irrational ways.

    But... picture it in 3 months...

    In my opinion, it'll be a novelty and only the most adoring fans will be left playing it. Which is great for those people and Blizzard both. My brother texted me that he is playing, so now I am playing it. We used to arena together in WoW for years (and raid, etc). But there is something fundamental to the design that is going to turn off a of of players that are trying it out right now.

    The amount of tedium is real. The travel. The leveling. The dungeons. This is not for everyone. But right now? I'm loving it.

    hopefully activision takes notice that an old unaltered version of the game is more popular that the crap-storm that is current wow with all its conveniences and shinnies.  In case they cant ill spell it out for them.
