What does IGN mirror streaming mean for EVO, the FGC and dedicated streamers like Sp00ky?


#1

So IGN has said they’ll be streaming EVO this year, which at first brought back horrible memories of needing to buy a subscription in order to watch (which I knew isn’t the case this year).
I was wondering how their trying to capitalize on this event will affect certain elements of the FGC. I mean, on one hand, it’s nice they’re acknowledging EVO, but on the other, I feel like it’s just a petty cash grab during our biggest event of theyear for stream views and thus commercials. Where was the love and coverage the rest of the year?
Will IGN mirroring the stream significantly affect the twitch viewer count, and thus affect folks like Sp00ky?
