This anarchy/democracy thing really killed the fun, there's *only* 54k viewers now.
Even if the streamer removes it now i doubt it will regain those viewers.

The streamer just shot himself in the foot. I don’t know how much the rest of you know about Twitch Plays Pokemon culture (I’m an expert), but the chaos is huge parts of it. It’s not like it is in other streamings where you can become successful by having a democracy system. If you implement a voting system, you bring shame to yourself, and the only way to get rid of that shame is repentance. What this means is the chat, after seeing this, is not going to want to use neither democracy or anarchy. This is HUGE. You can laugh all you want, but the streamer has alienated an entire chat with this move. The streamer, publicly apologize and reset the game or you can kiss your business goodbye.

That's because everyone else is at work/school or sleeping. The number of viewers always drops by half in the mornings. It'll be back to 110k this evening.

It's early morning for US and morning for Europe. The viewer count always drops during this time, it'll pick back up throughout the day.

I don't know if that's the case sincerely... in 6 days i always noticed that the viewers dropped the time it was 12 hours ago and at this time of the day was already recovered and at a new viewers record.

i laughed.

Speaking of which... Good morning!

Just woke up, as the above said a very large part of is is the fact that it's around noon in most of Europe (IE, at work or school) and early morning (3:30 to 6:30am) in the US (where I live). It'll pick up again in a few hours, just like most days.

Around 12 hours ago has always been peak time for this stream, that is evening PST. Around this time (3-4 AM PST) it was 40-45k or yesterday.

Man, I can't believe I missed the second Giovanni fight. I went to sleep exactly one hour before it happened, stupid me. I always go to bed at around 1:30 AM, why did I have to go at 0:00 yesterday?

Anyway, great work guys. Giovanni got what he deserved, Dux put on a fantastic show and Bird Jesus was amazing as always.

People were saying exactly the same thing yesterday at the same time, yet miraculously the stream peaked at 110k in the evening, up from 80k the day before.

Did they really go there just to get Swift? What is that going to do for them?

We really should have waited until after Pokemon Tower to get it. With the luck we've had, we'll probably just end up overwriting one of the moves we need for Pokemon Tower.
CALLED IT! There goes one of the three moves we had that could hit ghosts.

Eventually we need to have a serious conversation about how Digrat, while a good asset to the team at many points, has actively--and LITERALLY--been undermining much of what we do.
