Tuannguyen01: Hi Zlapped, Can you make an account with lower MMR to play with us? we are low MMR players and I really want to play with you but I can’t get 2k MMR , so I just see you on Twitch or YouTube and I have no chance to play with you. #FeelsBadMan
Zlapped: I actually do not play with viewers anymore. I used to play with viewers every now or then or at a special event. I haven’t really had time to do any special events. An example of that being a 24 hour marathon.
The reason for me not playing with viewers in the last 2 or 3 years is that I had a lot of complaints that people wanted to see high mmr. But then when I became into the competitive scene and started making money off tournaments I then was able to stop completely stop playing with customers in order to provide top tier content at all times.
That way my viewers would have more interesting games to watch, it wouldn’t just be stomps and it would be more even games then just playing low tmm with viewers.
The only exception I have is every Sunday I play with Twitch subscribers. Twitch subscribers are the ones that pay $5 a month to support me and not see any ads on my stream. That’s the way I can find someway to give back to them.
So every Sunday I do play with Twitch subscribers, one game per player. Whenever I can, but besides that I don’t play with viewers. I have no intention of doing so in the future unless in fact a special event like I said.
I don’t want to myself, as I don’t find it fun to stomp players all the time. Like I said it’s not as fun or entertaining for the viewership either. Which pretty much means it’s not a good thing to have on my stream. But, things can change, it’s just my opinion and what I’ve been doing the last couple of years. It’s not like I don’t want to play with you, it’s just that I want to provide the best possible content for you guys and that’s why I play high tmm. I could just play with customers all the time and make a lot more money. It’s not about the money, it’s not a matter of not wanting to play with you. It’s a matter of just providing the best possible entertainment for everyone involved.
That’s why I decided to not play with viewers or customers, besides the exception of giving back to the community on Sundays.
Sorry about that but I hope you understand and support my reasoning.
