    Just looking at Hitbox, they have streams with several thousand viewers, so there are enough people there. With a front page highlighted listing... it could actually attract move viewers than twitch :)

    I mean Twitch is the more popular platform, but PA is essentially invisible to anyone who doesn't know about the game so this could actually be a very positive trade.

    Thing is, Twitch has had to learn on the job, much like Daniel R in Harry Potter, it's a bit clunky with glaring needed improvements. Hitbox on the other hand has been able to watch and adapt from a distance, seeing what works and what doesn't and making a good combination.

    That's why the pioneers are the ones with arrows in their backs.

    I've just had a tinker with hitbox and it does seem a lot sleeker than twitch, you can customise the stream delay very easily and I was amazed that the actual realtime delay was only 5 seconds on my test stream - that was me broadcasting at 3500 kb/s too

    Thanks to our players, analysts and viewers for joining us for another King of the Planet. A couple of technical difficulties, but considering we were on a new streaming network it went relatively well.

    We also announced Clan Wars Showdown.

    No recent videos listed. :(

    Are they going to be made available (on youtube) for those of us that couldn't make it to the live games?

    We weren't the biggest, but for a while we had pride of place on the hitbox homepage.

    You know, to have been offered q front page spot is quite impressive. How many viewers showed up?

    I was less than impressed by the through-traffic generated by that front-page spot. I would have thought we'd have got at least a couple of hundred. I feel like Twitch attracts far more first-timers than Hitbox. Which is a shame, because I thought that Hitbox had a very smooth layout and a good service.
