As a community I feel right now we are missing somewhere to discuss the big events in AoE. The Viper streamed for 24 hours, probably averaged over 1.5k viewers for the full 25 hours he was streaming and there was not one post to discuss this on here. There were however a few Reddit posts but these quite quickly get lost in time. Most discussion was in Discord, but that is lost even quicker than Reddit.

There was a poll at the end of The Vipers stream asking people to vote on their favourite 15 moments and add more if they wanted. The first 15 were generally asked around in the twitch chat for, the rest were PM'd to me due to the poll.

The favourite was by far Toplo deleting The Vipers TC, this can be seen here: https://clips.twitch.tv/tyrant_theviper/GracefulBarracudaPipeHype

I am trying to get clips of everything together, but at the same time I am kinda lazy/ there is 25 hours to search through. Any help would be appreciated.

I think the stream went very well and proved things are still growing, there were a substantial amount of people for such a long period of time.

I think my favourite moment was this one: https://clips.twitch.tv/tyrant_theviper/AlivePorpoiseMrDestructoid

Did you watch any of it? What was your favourite moment?

The premise of your post is wrong. Viper's 24 h stream (or indeed any 24 hour stream) is not a big event, I mean it has hardly any relevance and in essence is nothing but a fanboy gathering. It has no relevance when compared to e.g. WiC or nations cup finals, etc.

I think a lot of people in the community enjoyed it, there were people there the whole 24 hours with Viper.

There was lots of discussion in discord throughout and after, all of which is now lost into the discord abyss and will get further and further away. Why is a post a bad thing? I would have also liked a post for T90 RRumble 2 and Nilis CotH but instead I posted in Nilis post and I missed the majority of the first game for RR2 so didn't post about that. But I think events like that should have posts here so we can discuss these in ways that we can refer back to later.

TyranT, the dominant team lost in the final in a very entertaining tournament to watch and there are very few comments about it. There isn't much around about the EGM Torneys and I requested a post to talk about RotK.

I don't remember saying this was the most important event of all time :/

cool story bro
He's right though, if something gets very high amount of viewers for a long time it doesn't mean it's an event in the meaning we use in AoC. Whatever tournament/duel are just different things compared to long stream.
@Carlini - I like your idea, unfortunately twitch chat usually isn't the place to discuss the game. Hopefully more people will support this, so the modes will at least have to take a look at this and think about it.

Certainly agree there, twitch you can "chat" but if you want to have any sort of meaningful discussion that certainly isn't the place. Any kind of tactical discussion, especially with that many viewers just isn't going to happen before the grassDauts come out.

Up to 25 clips now. Thanks for sending them to me guys.

There is a difference between "a lot of people" enjoyed it" and "it is important". Most of these 1k5 are regulars, and those spent the whole 24 hours are exactly the fanboys. I never said the post is bad, I am just saying that "it is important" is #clearly wrong. If something like this would be important, this would indicate that aoc is on the way down (which it is not - I hope!).

Well, it helps the aoc community grow so in that regard, it's a pretty major event imo. And he's the posterboy of competitive aoc as it is anyway.

It mainly helps biper, he made 2k5 $ within 24 hours. It's not like he will put this in tournaments or something. Will he? Generally speaking, a 24h stream is only considered a big event by fan boys. To them it is big, obviously. In the not so far future this will be forgotten, Unlike the glorious BO21, in which jordan proved his #clear superiority over the biper #neverforget

Yeah - I checked the stream at the beginning and then once at the end just to see if the Viper lived or dieded.

why the hate, 24 hour streams (especially with as many viewers as viper got, and the way he showcased many aspects of age of empires through engaging and interesting methods) really help out to spread awareness of age of empires 2 and that it is still alive in both a casual and competitive sense. Viper was in the top 20 - 25? channels on twitch which meant that most likely many new people had a glance at this. This in turn benefits age of empires in the long run.
Viper also got many many new subs and almost a whopping $2500 in donations alone which he definitely deserves for the constant almost daily entertainment he has been providing for the past couple months streaming as well as in the past.

In short Viper is a huge help to the community as a whole along with many other streamers / tournament organisers / admins / players / participators / twitch chatters / voobly team / HD team / zone team in the past 18 years and we should all view this as a positive growth for age of empires in the present day.

So a win / win situation for everyone. :smile:

Whether it is a fanboy event is irrelevant. Fact remains, there SHOULD be recaps of the most outstanding AoC events (and the 24 hour stream would be one of them, because it is something that would be talked about), not only to get feedback and make the next ones better, but to bring more activity and attention to these forums. The game is growing, but AoCZone isn't growing with it because 1. there's not enough promotion 2. abundance of toxic members on these forums.

Although I don't really participate much here, I still check the forums daily and it breaks my heart to see so little activity. It seems like the only threads that get attention are those filled with drama. Twitch is steadily growing, we should translate that into more active forums as well, and I don't think it would be hard with the help of certain people.

Maybe if you put just a little effort into reading the sentence that follows, it would make more sense. Just maybe.

But just by arguing with me you are redempting your stupidity so thumbs up!
I dont understand this, you seem to blur discussion and arguing together under the banner of just the word 'arguing'

All i see here is just a discussion imo
