On the Twitch part of your post, we don't 'ban' people for simply asking questions. We only ask that when you're asking overly complex questions that have no chance of being answered then to ask in a more appropriate setting.
People ask the same question two, three, four times during streams, then get annoyed when it doesn't get seen or answered. This can have various effects on chat.
I have an idea of what and who you are talking about regarding the 'troll' comment and why we time people out. It's in the rules. Don't antagonise people. Some of these comments aren't just 'outside of the norm' or 'taboo' they're just downright rude. That's why we timeout or remove certain comments.
If you've got specific comments about a particular mod or action taken, honestly, bring it to the attention of another mod in a PM (doing it through here is usually the best way).
Otherwise, what Blood said.
PS - Youtube is Youtube. Seems like nastiness is just expected in comments there as it is for every other channel. It disgusts me but you have to expect it.
That last part I can't stress enough, this is a lot of why most people don't allow comments on their videos. Otherwise it generally is a wildwest of awfulness.
Just flagrant disrespect and toxicity that even in my most rage induced moments would not stoop to.
here is my 2 cents on this. I look at all the streaming content as free bees. all the stuff is something to keep people occupied while we wait for the regular shows to be produced. I think people might be thinking that they focus more on streaming because they do it show much but I do think that they devote 100% of there time to the content they promised via the stretch goals and the spare time they have left is used for streaming because they love the community.
There is a split community there with twitch and the patroens and there is also the subscription but I still think like youtube clicks what keeps the wheels rolling is patreon and that is what bradon has told us in "cup of jones"
This is also one of the reasons why I personally don't support them on twitch if I want to give them money I want it to mean more and see it go to more content hence patreon.
they are working there butts off to get shows out and its 9 people just to remind everyone and only a few are full time. doing shows like everyone want to with that staff is not possible and yes it will be easier to corodinate in a studio at the 45K goals buts lets be real for a sec. The production time will go down but 9 people still is still 9 people even in a studio. We are not going to suddenly get 10 shows because a studio. lead times might do down an quality in the production will go up but its still going be the same amount of shows. But lets wait and see and lets hit that 45K mark.
I do think the reality is that Easy Allies is still a business at the end of the day and frankly they need to cover the big releases in order to stay relevant in the "mainstream".
As Blood has said, I'm happy with streams and chats about indie games, and frankly hearing an Ally talk on Frame Trap (e.g) about how good a game is (indie or not) has more often sold me on a game, than a straight up review. Reviews are normally used, by myself personally, to verify whether to purchase a game or not. The podcasts are where I discover new games (small and big) that I may be interested in.
I used to listen to a different site's podcasts but stopped because all they started to talk about where mobile indie games, which for me personally is not what I wanted to hear for the whole duration of a podcast. Hearing the Allies' thoughts on the big releases is far more compelling than hearing someone talk about a game I can't relate to because I've neither heard of it nor played.
However this new series Don't Skip sounds very interesting and I'm eager to give it a go!
Don't Skip is exactly what I was looking for. EZA is legit the best. I upped my Patreon to the new $7 pledge for the movie podcast and Brad is covering Momodora this week. 8 hours of Xenoblade as well. What a damn good week. :)
Sorry for seeing this a bit late, but I would love for Easy Allies to be the guests at Gamedays. I've been wanting to make it out to Gamedays for years, but I keep holding out on actually saving up the money to go. If the Allies were guests, it would be the easiest decision to attend.
