EZA Group Streams

@sentinel-beach Judging by what Damiani said in the Super Mario 64 Stream I think it's probably a Metal Gear Solid 1 Full Playthrough.
Edit: Nah, it's another Fundraiser. I think the full MGS1 playthrough is going to be at some sort of Easy Livin' in the Summer then.

I just want them to use Discord for group voice chat. It's really off-putting listening to their voice in such a low quality. I realize that it's a minor flaw, but I think the stream quality would be a lot better. I don't know how viable it is from a stream set-up perspective but It would be a great addition to the already awesome streams.
Quite a lot of mixed feelings in the YouTube comments for the Better Stuff Before E3 Fundraiser video. I have mixed feelings as well, there are some solid arguments on both sides about the current status of EZA in general, about how they've grown and developed during these two years. I'd be really, really interested to see the upcoming Patreon tier changes soon. And there was a good suggestion, for example, about shooting a bunch of Fancy Fifteen episodes in one sitting and making it a weekly show that way, I'd be super into that.

@sentinel-beach There were a lot of amazing suggestions from patrons in that April update Patreon post, I wish Brandon addressed all of those in Cup of Jones. Maybe they'll talk about them in Thursday's stream.

I hate to say it but i agree with alot of the comments on that video, the one thing i didn't see anyone mention is merchandise, i have Funhaus and Kinda funny shirts but i don't have any Easy Allies shirts, they have alot of talented people in the community that can draw amazing designs to put on a shirts or a mugs.. etc and they do nothing with it, i just went on the store from the main easy allies website and there's the same old merch likr cases for i phones 6/6s, plus the new design L&R t shirts are not there !!!
Plus i just Googled Easy Allies t shirts and i got a link to redbubble and there's alot of good shirts but who is making the money from them?

@a7x458 They just released two new designs on FanGamer. Someone pointed out to Jones on Cup of Jones last week that the website only takes you to Spreadshirt, not FanGamer, so I think that'll be fixed soon.
That was some really fun bomb defucing in the group stream. :) It seemed like everyone had their moment, one way or another. It was nice to see them get better step by step, and then still maybe confusing six wires for five, heh. The best moment? We all saw it, amazing. I cheered and jumped up laughing.
Damiani and Kyle with 1.3 seconds left. HO-LY shit! Phenomenal stuff! :D
That stream was INTENSE! I've never heard of this game but I think the Allies must be pretty above average at the game. They had a lot of success. Honestly looks like some of the best and most interesting VR I've heard of.

@sentinel-beach Haha, when they had a minute left I said "Either they're going to fail or this will be super clutch." and I was not disappointed.
@DIPSET Keep Talking and Nobody Explodes is a great game to play with a group, really ingenious way to use VR. The Allies actually played it before, very briefly, when they did the Vive night!
I'm so glad they got this equipment money and so much more for this stream which is currently going on. I know I've been enthusiastic about EZA and GT for years now and I'd love for them to get that studio and get more patrons, but it really shows how we all love the Allies, this website, and the content they produce by stepping up and helping out so we can all get better content.

How much did they get? I watched until Luke Arnold arrived and I had to go sleep, it was 1:20 AM at that point. They had $14 000 at that point, ridiculous numbers! :D I'm so freaking happy for the guys, they'll be able to get so much new gear now. :) Man, what a success.
I'll have to watch the remaining of the stream at some point, but now I'm just about to start God of War. :]
Edit. HOLY SHIT OVER $30 000!!!!!!! What the hell. People are fucking amazing. Jesus, I'm weeping a bit. Checked out Twitter. Insane. Insane. I have to see their reactions sooner than later. This will be so good for them. I'm happy as hell right now.

The level of support last night was insane. Just wow. This is definitely going to help with the general quality of all their content. Can't wait.
Such a great stream! Glad I could be there for about half at least! People were so hype and the jollyness was on 110% all way through. Thank you to each and everyone that showed up!
I loved every second of it. I work in production and deep down wish I was doing something like Easy Allies do for a living and I was getting excited seeing that money go up and then some! I hope they start using gels to go with the camera(s).

What more can be said that hasn't already?
The generosity and overwhelming support for EZA is inspiring and makes me overjoyed the Allies will be able to continue to reach their goals and dreams.
That stream does the soul good.

I'm slowly working my way through the stream via YouTube and wow... just incredible. For some reason, the rhetoric in the community after the 2 year anniversary was that things were stagnating, that we're not getting enough new content, and the usual "more scripted, less podcasts" comment. Numbers were starting to slip a bit and even I'll admit, I had small pangs of worry. That's why it's even more jolly to see the results of this stream, the Patreon numbers rising, and even cool collabs like the Cory Barlog Spoiler Mode coming to fruition. You can tell how much the support meant to all the fellas and I'm a major fan of most of the changes. More early access content, finally removing the awful group stream committee vote, etc.
It serves as a needed reminder as to what makes the Allies so special. I could see a lot of creators continuing to let things decline or finding excuses for why things don't work but even after a small dip, they took immediate action and came up with a plan. It's also great to see our community hasn't lost faith and will continue to help in any way that we can. I honestly cannot wait to see this E3 coverage.

So without the selection committee this is theoretically the best place to talk about what we'd like to see them play. I really dug the LAN party nostalgia from Halo last night, and that just reaffirms that I'd like to see them play some Call of Duty Zombies for a group stream, preferably WaW or Blops1 for the simplicity and nostalgia factor. They'd need 2 consoles for 4 players, but I remember they did do a 2 console setup back when they did the For Honor tournament, so it's not impossible.
At first I wasn't too excited about them playing Halo, but the guys made it fun to watch after a while. The RPG and sniper matches were neat, and when they got their names on the screen to make following them easier it all became much better. Hoping for some 4 player games in the future as well, co-op too.
Interesting to see what the tournament picks are going to be in the poll. It's next week, right? Second Tuesday of the month.

Since we can't submit tournament ideas on Patreon, I'll put this here. I'd love to see a Hearthstone tournament. It sounds like Ben and Huber have put the most time into the game, so they should use their two accounts. To make it fair, decks would be randomized. Each competitor selects a class and starts to make a new deck, but clicks 'Done' without adding any cards. The computer will add 30 random cards which usually have a decent mana curve. The winner of a match has to make a new deck with a different class and the loser can choose to keep their current deck or make a new one. Best 2 out of 3, single elimination. I would use the wild format for this so there's a bigger card pool and the randomness means OP combos are unlikely.
Does anyone else like this idea? Any suggestions to make it better?
