Twitch Drops, Broken Extension and E3

So apparently we should have been able to play a trivia, but if you used Chrome or maybe other factors it likely didn't work. I granted the extension access, already something many people would not know to do and there were no instructions given beyond linking your account, but the extension never loaded. I had no way of knowing it was going to work, assumed some part of the show would stop and give us questions or something. Right at the end, when I realized something wasn't right, I switched over to MS Edge to see wtf, I had no idea the trivia had been running the whole time. So when It finally showed using Edge all the questions were done.

If participation and having the Extension working was a requirement for the twitch drops that is pretty brutal. I'm hoping it's not.

    Yeah I had the same experience - maybe giving it permissions was enough?

    someone is telling me, even though I don't have a Bethesda specific account or play the other games (just my ESO one) you may have need to link both to qualify... wow - sure hope not.

    Warframe does twitch drops (my only other experience) and as long as you watch the stream for a certain amount of time your good. So I know none of this extra crap is required, just "they" might deem it required and totally optionally screw over, probably thousands of fans.

    I sure hope its not true - I will say if you want to take your big event and massive hype and spit all over it make it feel terrible and crappy - poorly implement a rewards program that will screw over 90% of you participating fans. *thumbs up*

    Even just explaining so terribly makes it a Feels bad man moment. smh.

    As far as I can tell there were still questions popping up during the middle of the stream. I had the same experience and just thought that opting in would be enough, but still checked the poll page sometimes. Right after the announcement of the Fallout76 release date the question "when will Fallout 76 be released" turned up, was only open for about 20 seconds before joining the closed questions. So I guess if you wanted to answer the questions you have to had the overlay open at all times (I didn't bother anymore after answering one question).

    Anyway, from all I can tell of the announcement it was sufficient to just grant access. The extension offered more than these polls, for instance all these preorder popups. If you saw those you should be fine too, that should also count as "using the extension".

    I used Chrome (on Mac) and managed to get it linked (and yes, no documentation), and the extension loaded fine, got a few hundred points during trivia when it'd accept an answer before timeout. Maybe you had an ad-blocker up? That's the only reason I ever use Chrome, for sites where I think my Safari ad-blocking will break everything.

    Wait..what?? I just watched the entire presentation, made a Twitch account first, which I didn't have, linked it to my ESO account and had the right url channel up on Twitch (Bethesda.net). Now you’re saying there was something else I was supposed to do??

    Since you are not mentioning that: You should also have linked your Bethesda account with the Twitch account (I created a Bethesda account just for that) and clicked on the puzzle icon at the bottom of the stream to grant it access to your Twitch ID. I don't think you had to participate in the polls.

    If I had to guess I'd say they will just look at "which Twitch IDs granted our extension access and which of those are also linked to a Bethesda and ESO account". But well, "if I had to guess"...

    Neither me nor my brother linked our Bethesda accounts. I didn't know you had to do that.

    I did the polls for both of us. Both our ESO accounts are linked to our Twitch ones though. Hopefully we get the wolf.

    I can only give my experience;

    Linked both ESO and Beth accounts to twitch account - ESO quite a bit before Beth but both done.
    Sat up all night to watch the feed (2:30 start UK)
    Watched whole broadcast
    Had puzzle piece on live - before even the fifteen minute preamble
    Clicked on puzzle piece and allowed it
    Had a bit fun on trivia / polls - was ranked at 135 when I took photo with phone!
    Left Twitch on five mins or so when live ended
    About ten minutes later re-logged twitch just out of curiosity

    ALL ON PC (Laptop)

    As I understand it the 'drops' are to be given in next 24 - 48 hours but Beth have put in twitch chat they are working on it!

    Also, I was under impression that drops will show up in twitch inventory - but I really do not know!

    It's twenty to five in the morning here so I'll be logging out soon and will just have to wait and see ... !



    EDIT -To clarify, I used Firefox as it is my 'general' browser. Also corrected a few mistypes.

    The wording is ambigious, unfortunately. Some say that for the ESO drops an ESO acount has to be linked and the Bethesda account for the other two. But on the page they just state you have to link both accounts and are not specifying if you will recieve none or only part of the rewards if only one account is linked.

    I had 3 separate Twitch accounts (me, my GF, and 1 friend) streaming BE3, and none of them saw this mythical 'Extension' icon/button/link that we read about on the https://bethesda.net/en/article/3K92m0xeUMyqKEuQ8sUqSw/announcing-our-be3-twitch-extension website link.

    Me, ESO: @Darkmage1337 / Twitch: Darkmage1337 on Desktop (2nd monitor) (while playing ESO on my main monitor)
    My GF, ESO: @Dracarys1337 / Twitch: Darkmistress1337 on my Laptop
    My friend, ESO: @Dragonclaw1337 / Twitch: Velxrian streaming on a phone

    All accounts were previously linked with their Bethesda.net & ESO account management 'linked account' settings prior to the BE3 Stream. We even refreshed the stream a few times throughout, but nothing regarding a Twitch Extension ever popped up on any of our 3 stream feeds. So, hopefully we all still received credit for the 'Twitch Extension.'
    Desktop and laptop used Google Chrome.
    Phone was iPhone 7 Plus, Twitch App & Safari.

    Hopefully we all get the rewards. :neutral:

    Seems communication is the problem to our answer!

    A note - if you use any extensions/addons in you're browser that blocks scripts (such a 'NoScript') you had to make sure to not block ext-twitch.tv , else the voting overlay wouldn't show. I had this issue at first - gave permission to the twitch extension but didn't see anything, checked NoScript and spotted ext-twitch.tv being blocked... enabled that and reloaded the page, the extension was then showing and allowing me to answer questions.

    Don't know if Chrome has a feature/addon/extension that automatically blocks scripts - if it does, could be why it wasn't showing in Chrome browser.

    Thanks for the info. Ok, I’ve done that now, too.
