I'm concerned considering Google/Youtube has a poor reputation amongst gamers, and that I have stake in a Twitch TV channel as well. But who knows? The hopeful side of me believes that maybe down the line they'll sponsor e-Sports. The cynical and realistic side of me believes that they'll bog it down with absurd copyright claims and other content limitations.

Couldnt care less about this, twitch sucks now anyways. I used to be on twitch for 5+ hours a day EVERYDAY, it used to be fun, it used to be cool, now it has just gone to shit. They should have never changed it in the first place. Hope youtube changes it and makes it good again, either way i dont go on there anymore heh

Can't wait for Twitch to die.

Terribly managed company, they need competition badly.
But I'll settle for Google running them into the ground.
