    Ok new to all this Twitch streaming malarky.

    Am I correct that all the Official streams are at ridiculous times for anyone outside of the US? Earliest on Saturday is 1am in the UK.

    But if I chose to watch a Community stream at a vaguely sensible time will I get the shiny?

    There are a couple Saturday and Sunday at more reasonable times, the 1st is 9am UK time tomorrow.

    They are listed in a way that is confusing but they are listed.

    Also you'll still get a crate from one of the community streams, it's just the flaming pony that you need to watch the official streams for.

    The charity stream was supposed to start 30 mins ago & it's still the Arkane people talking.

    Needless to say, there's a lot of very angry and impatient people who aren't getting their ESO drops on Twitch right now...

    So far this has been very confusing. There are different events across the different Bethesda channels and various official stream team channels (not all of them just ones on the schedule) events listed in the announcement on the website have links so people need to pay attention, they have ESO events scheduled through the US, DE, FR Bethesda twitch channels. The QuakeCon Schedule listed in the main Bethesda twitch account does NOT have any links or tell you what channel those events are on. So a lot of people just sit in the main Bethesda twitch channel and spam #ESO or asking about the pony while missing out on the event on the DE or FR channels.

    I saw drops enabled on the Main Bethesda twitch channel. But when I switched over to the Bethesda DE twitch channel to watch one of the qualifying ESO streams, there was no 'drops enabled' flag / tag / notice on the stream title information area. But the bot kept saying that drops were enabled. So I tried refreshing, I tried following and then refreshing and I still could not see the drops enabled notice on the stream title information. So I have no clue if anyone is getting drops from that stream.

    Then of course there's the problem that all times are listed in EST and people can miss that or do bad math on the time conversion so it would be nice to at least get the EST/CST/PST times listed side by side and we could go from there.

    I have watched the ESO Voice-Over Chat—Featuring Jennifer Hale & Robbie Daymond (Friday, August 7 at 1PM EDT at twitch.tv/Bethesda) stream, received both crate and pet about 12 hours later in the (local time) morning (so it is possible they were sent even earlier).

    Twitch has a default "offline mode" now. Did you change your mode to online? I think you should do so to get the drops.

    I got a pony pet and a crate for watching the Voice Over stream on Friday. The separate email notifications for pet and crate both arrived here at the end of the day on Friday. Thanks ZOS for the pony and crate!

    I watched the Icereach stream on Saturday, and did not receive any crate drop from that.

    Based on my own results, crate drops are not guaranteed for every day that you watch. But I thought the pony drop was guaranteed if you watch any one ESO stream for at least 15 minutes.

    I did watch all of the ESO events yesterday and got my pony and another crate out of it. The ones I watched were on the main Bethesda 'US' channel and drops were definitely enabled. There was a bot announcing the count down to when the crate mails would go out, which was Midnight EST. Sure enough I had an email about an hour later saying I had received the pony, and when I woke up this morning, I had another one for a standard drop crate.

    posted in the wrong pet thread on the other but also didn't get that pet either, but i'm a ps4 player, and so are relatives that have their own ps4 accounts on ps4 and twitch accounts and devices they watched the saturday presentation live as well as I did. None of us have gotten the pet or crate (s) we were supposed to get. usually twitch drops work too but there are times where it does this and it doesn't go through? how long does it take for others to get their drops? watched well over 20 mins or so

    Most people here seem to be more interested in their pet/mount/whatever drop than in the actual content of the stream.

    I'll talk about the two streams I've watched because I was interested in the topics :
    - voice-over
    - art creation

    Both streams were super-interesting... but the interesting and fun facts in them were diluted in such a high quantity of insignificant boring small talk that I found it really hard to stay tuned until the end.

    I know it's corporate communication and PR and I accept that.
    I know the format is meant to be slow, relaxed, and give the feeling that we're all having and informal drink together - fine, too.

    But sometimes, please consider that whatever you're talking about might not be really relevant or interesting, and also, please consider that viewers, albeit "gamers", do not ALL enjoy being talked to like 3-year-olds (or plain idiots).

    Sorry for the somewhat negative review...

    You really, really need to chill.

    Why should they hide their actual positions?
    When did they talk to someone like to 3-year-old?

    Those are not professional conferences, those are literally "hi, these guys make your game" streams. I, personally, extremely enjoyed listening to jokes and stories and, like, being reminded that there are real people with their own lives behind all of this. Not sure what did you expect.
