Another way to increase viewership in the future would be through increased promotion and refinement of the commentary stream. Twitch is a platform that thrives on engagement, and many players were confused at first that all Method players were silent. While the silent streams felt very pure, emphasizing the skill of raiding and uncluttered by stream distractions, it was unconventional for Twitch. Many players were surprised to learn that the commentary stream existed for the first few days, so perhaps that will grow in popularity to attract players that do appreciate some insights during the race.
The race also took place with many serious contenders for G’huun opting not to stream. Suspense was high simply watching the Method streams and hearing speculation on how far other guilds progressed. Should other guilds choose to stream, perhaps inspired by these record numbers, it would hype the race even further. Imagine watching two guilds racing for the World First, both streaming, so players could compare their progress, DPS meters, best attempts, and so on.
