I'm not saying big streamers are intentionally trying to monopolize twitch viewers, but because twitch is making them stream VODs when they aren't on, it is indirectly taking away from small streamers. So basically it is unintentional but still affecting small streamers from getting any limelight.Rerunning stuff (or streaming VODs) doesnt make great sense if its just regular ladder day I guess, but its up to everyone if they want to stream that content and if the viewers want to watch that content. Id not do either, but I also cant judge as for me the income from streaming isnt nearly as important so I can live without reaching the 82+ hour goals Id need.
Also the argument about blocking hours for smaller streamers isnt fair. That would assume big streamers are just aiming to build a streaming monopoly, but in fact they almost always host another streamers (including the smaller ones) before going off.
