Twitch Drops: Information & FAQ

Post#1 » Thu Jul 30, 2020 5:53 pm

Hello everyone,

Here is the initial information you need to know as a player or a streamer. I will split this topic into 2 sections, Section 1: Viewers and Section 2: Streamers.

I will add a list of Frequently Asked Questions, gathered from our forums, social media accounts and Reddit. If you still have any question, feel free to comment below and I'll give you an answer the soonest.

Section 1: Viewers
As some of you know, Twitch has agreed to enable Twitch Drops for Return of Reckoning. This awesome feature will be live every month, for a weekend. It usually starts on Friday noon and ends on Monday noon in order to cover all the timezone differences.
We have prepared the system that will allow you to link your Return of Reckoning account and your Twitch account. Doing that, will make you eligible to watch your favorite RoR streamers and then claim the rewards as you go through hours of watching. The hours will stack up.

This video will guide you through the linking procedure:

Linking both of the accounts and claiming the rewards is done on our website, right over here.


We have invited some streamers and others have willingly applied to gain access to Twitch Drops. Below you can find the link that shows you which channels are currently approved to receive Twitch Drops. But first, I'd like to clarify that not all the channels will receive access to Twitch Drops. We choose from the community's favorite channels, we choose from the channels who have applied to join the program and, we also choose from channels who are dedicated to the community/game. Whatever was the channel, be assured that if it's active enough and serves the community, it will be picked. We also could remove streamers who aren't dedicated anymore or who've stopped streaming after the event.

You can check the frequently updated list of streamers with Twitch Drops access here.

_______________________________________________________________________________________________________________________

Section 2: Streamers
If you would like to join the Affiliate Streamer program, supporting Return of Reckoning project and being supported back, please let us know. There are no restrictions to who can apply, however not every streamer will be accepted for reasons we will surely discuss with you, on your private application post. This program is not for casual streamers who might consider streaming the project. It is purely for dedicated streamers with old enough channels that are actively streaming and increasing the project's exposure.

If you'd like to apply, please use our Affiliate Streamer Application.

QUESTIONS ABOUT THE EVENT

Q: What are Twitch Drops?
Spoiler:
A: Twitch Drops is a feature that allows you to win in-game loot by watching your favorite streamers or any other channel with Drops enabled.
Q: How frequent will the event occur?
Spoiler:
A: We're currently enabling Twitch Drops once per month.
Q: How do I link my Twitch account to my RoR account?
Spoiler:
A: In order to link your accounts together, please use this link. In addition, you can watch the Video Guide posted above.
Q: Why were Twitch Drops enabled for Return of Reckoning?
Spoiler:
A: We have requested and enabled Twitch Drops in an effort to support the streamers helping this project and its player-base, as well as bring the community closer to the digital world. Twitch Drops, ads and anything happening on Twitch serves and profits streamers only, never the project. Our project has zero intentions of any sort of direct or indirect profit and refuses any sort of donations.
QUESTIONS ABOUT THE REWARDS

Q: What are the rewards?
Spoiler:
A: The rewards will always vary from one event to another, with some famous rewards surviving the purge/change. Streamers will always be the ones who have the rewards list, so make sure you ask them on their streams.
Q: What are the types of requirements for rewards?
Spoiler:
A: (1) Watch a single streamer for X hours within a day. (2) Watch one or more streamers and the hours would cumulate and stack. (3.1) Complete RNG system made by Twitch that does a roll every 5 minutes for the channels; each 5 minutes some channel's current viewers could win a drop. (3.2) Complete RNG system made by Twitch that does a roll every 5 minutes for the unique viewers; each 5 minutes some online viewers could win a drop.
Q: How do I receive the rewards?
Spoiler:
A: Rewards are claimed on Twitch and sent to your RoR account. After claiming the rewards from Twitch, head to your Twitch-RoR account page and send the rewards to your in-game characters.
Q: Do unclaimed rewards expire?
Spoiler:
A: Yes. Unclaimed rewards will eventually expire, usually in less than a week from the start of the event. Please make sure to check your rewards' expiry date in your Twitch-RoR account page.
Q: Do I have to watch for consecutive hours to be rewarded?
Spoiler:
A: Some rewards require you to watch a single streamer for 5 hours. These 5 hours need to be watched in one day. Other rewards are more flexible, where you can watch different streamers on different days/sessions and the hours would cumulate.
Q: Am I be able to choose which character will receive the rewards?
Spoiler:
A: Yes, you will be able to choose what character receives the rewards by visiting your account on this site.
Q: Do I have to be online in-game to claim the rewards?
Spoiler:
A: No, you simply have to be watching. You can claim the rewards while being offline in-game. Don't keep unclaimed rewards and don't forget that mails are wiped in-game.
QUESTIONS ABOUT THE STREAMERS

Q: Will future Twitch Drops events envelop the same approved streamers?
Spoiler:
A: Some streamers will be removed and replaced by other streamers. The reason we could remove streamers is based on their activity during and after the event as we're looking forward to support streamers who support the community and its players in return.
Q: What if my favorite streamer isn't on the list?
Spoiler:
A: Please go ahead and inform them about the affiliate program and ask them to apply. If they are interested, we'll discuss it with them and do our best to assist their channel.
Q: Does following or subscribing increase the chances of random drops?
Spoiler:
A: Following or subscribing has no effect on your chances of getting random drops, or any other types of drops.
Q: Does watching a streamer with lower viewers increase the chances for random drops?
Spoiler:
A: All Twitch streams have an equal chance of giving these random drops. It's basically an internal system with a percentage that is not related to the number of viewers.
Q: Do we have to unlink and relink when swapping between streamers?
Spoiler:
A: Your Twitch account and your Return of Reckoning account need to be linked only once. The link remains until you manually remove it.
QUESTIONS ABOUT OTHER STUFF

Q: Does Twitch Drops affect/delay in-game development/bug fixes/balances?
Spoiler:
A: Twitch Drops will never affect any ongoing development, fix or balance patch. The people who work on everything digital are not tasked with in-game to-do's.

Can you clarify what an "event" is in this context? e.g. a weekly thing, month-long campaign, changed at-will, etc?

Basically we want to have a test run this weekend. That being said, we have the plan and are interested to have a weekly Twitch Drop event but we want to be sure about everything related to in-game rewards, streamers and players reviews, etc.

To clear the image for you: This weekend you will be able to watch streamers, claim rewards and take them from your in-game mailbox. There are also chain quests which will allow you and other viewers to group up with the streamer and go through that quest with him.

After that you link your accounts together, and after that you claim a reward on Twitch, you will be able to visit your account here and it'll give you an option to send the claimed reward to your desired character.
