    Mixer, gosh I hope you guys got paid

    Couldn't find any other forum that discussed this, and perhaps it is inappropriate.

    I hope that Hirez got a lot out of the deal with Mixer. Personally, I find the interface horrible, unable to fast forward through the first 30+minutes of title screen on vods is a big turn off. The reliability has been very poor in my experience whether live or vod often stuttering so severely that it's unwatchable. And, biggest complaint, if you do wait through the title screen to watch the vod and wanted to adjust the volume, pause or rewind, oops automatically reset to second 0.

    I'm really bad at Smite and was looking forward to the POV options to enjoy and perhaps pickup a little technique, but honestly Mixer is such a pain I haven't watched a single match and not coincidentally my desire to play is significantly reduced.

    Doing a little research, I'm far from alone in finding Mixer problematic. Anyway, hope y'all got paid, hope that Oyaban Bill Gates decides to invest the time and money to address these problems with Mixer. I think y'all are great and make a great product, but this streaming decision leaves me hoping that you were blinded by huge dollar signs, because if a "Google it" level of due diligence would've raised red flags.

    Peace

    A lot of functionality is missing from that platform.

    It would also help if they didn't stream the esports matches of certain regions far beyond the bed time of those regions...

    It would also help if their mobile app wasn't complete garbage.

    Just do not get the PC apps.
    I contacted Mixer Saturday about problems with the channel, they said they are working with Hi-Rez to fix issues.

    Personally if I am watching a VOD, I just drag the circle on the bottom bar where I want it. The controls work so long as you aim at the bottom of them.

    While I'm sure it wasn't me, I'm glad that at least some of the issues that I brought up here have been addressed. You can now scroll/fast forward/rewind and adjust the volume without resetting to zero.

    So good job you in getting Mixer to work well enough I'm no longer tempted to toss my laptop out the window. Still hope y'all got paid, but at least I can watch the SPL without ripping my hair out.

    Peace

    mixer isn't worth it

    I know it came about to combat twitch, but given the issues that mixer has...we're better of with twitch
    Yeah...Right...Sure...And I'm The King of England!
    If it works in your favor, don't question it.

    Here's the thing with Mixer though. In Mixer, on a day of the tournament, when people gets hyped to see their teams compete and win or not and others get hyped to get the free chest rolls, the advantage is that Smite gets a lot of views and ends up placed most of the time around the 3rd, maybe even 4th most viewers in the website. But on a normal day where no event is going on, you have to scroll a bit further down and you see there is only around 50+ viewers for a normal day.

    So here are my two cents:

    Pros of Mixer:
    -During tournament and events, people join and Smite is shown to a lot of other people too. making them curious about joining.
    -You get to see players behaviour and expression (assuming one wants to do so)
    -They supposedly got a contract they see worth as Smite ends up like I said earlier, 3rd or 4th with most viewers.

    Disadvantages of Mixer:
    -On a normal day, they don't get as much views as they would. So less people will find it.
    -Mixer still has its issues to viewing videos
    -Rewards only affect to PC players. Meaning PS4 and Xbox One are left out. However, I am told supposedly during console tournaments, it's for console player? I can't confirm this though.
    -Mixer is still buggy when you open up your profile sometimes to see your other settings (Like example, moves the chat and the video slightly to the left, making it worse to watch the stream).

    Advantages on Twitch:
    -Wether it was an event, tournament, or a normal day, they'd always go over 1k viewers.
    -Rewards would work for both, PC and console players.
    -Console players and PC players can watch the stream from the comfort of their platforms (assuming that console players want to watch it from their Xbox one or PS4)
    -People felt comfortable with Twitch feature after having used it for so long.
    -Some people could buy gems directly from Twitch in order to get drops from Twitch and receiving their gems for Smite.

    Disadvantages on Twitch:
    -They would end up overshadowed by some other games (Mostly right now Fortnite is overshadowing most games)
    -They felt like they wouldn't promote their game well in Twitch as well as in Mixer. Which is understandable.
    -Twitch is a little heavy for some people (Don't ask. Some people tell me they can't see the stream on Twitch)

    This is all I can think of my two cents right now. They all have their benefits and what not. High Rez just though they'd get better deals and such with mixer. Some players believe this wasn't one of High Rez's best decision though. but it is still up to them what they'll do.
