I love the live reaction streams, and never miss them.
I try to watch them from start to finish and only look and the original feeds afterwards.
However, there is one little thing that I am no big fan of:
The Allies looking up leaks right before the show.
We had that happen several times with people who set up the demo stands before the show floor opens posting pictures on 4chan.
The biggest spoiler this E3 was when before the Sony press conference, Damiani apparently saw a leak on 4chan about the Shadow of the Colossus remake.
The consequence was, that in literally the first second of the trailer during the conference, Damiani shouted that it's Shadow of the Colossus.
Now, most of those announcement trailers are designed so the audience doesn't immediately can confirm what game it is, but rather has to figure it out, as the trailer gives more and more hints, before finally confirming it at the end.
Like when the Allies watched the "The Last of Us: Part II" announcement, and were guessing what game it is, only to go insane when they saw the firefly symbol on a street sign.
For me, this was pure gold, and is the reason why I watch all the EZA reaction live streams instead of the official streams.
But looking up last-minute leaks right before the streams kinda robs us of those "realization" moments.
So my plead to the allies would be to make a pact to not look up any leaks on the day of a press conference.
Maybe you feel like it's a kind of journalistic duty to read that, but if I may make an assumption, your viewers are watching those streams for the group feeling and to see your innocent reactions and emotions, not as the #1 news ticker.
So in this regard, I think it's rather counter productive.
Now I can only speak for myself, but that's the vibe that I'm getting.
I see looking up those last-minute show floor leaks before the press conferences as very counter productive.
I don't want to put particular blame on Damiani - it could have been everybody.
But just look at this and tell me that the last minute leaks didn't ruin the whole reaction of "confusion - guessing - realizing - flipping out":
