1 What is StreamHeroes?
StreamHeroes is a virtual and interactive trading card game where you are rewarded for your loyalty as a viewer of your favorite streamers. You earn points for watching Twitch content and can in turn exchange them for great trading cards from various creators and streamers. You can even compete with other fans while collecting and become the ultimate StreamHero.
2 What are the advantages of StreamHeroes?
Of course, StreamHeroes offers several advantages - both for creators and viewers. The free system is already extremely popular with the Twitch community, and by now many big streamers have their own cards.
2.1 Advantages as a streamer
As a streamer, you naturally want to build a brand and show your viewers that you are more than a simple streamer. Besides many adjustments you can make, like integrating different overlays or setting a consistent channel design, StreamHeroes offers you a decisive advantage: Your viewers watch your stream longer and more often, because they want to collect points and cards from you. If you as a streamer decide to offer your own collectible cards to your viewers, you will be placed more prominently on the StreamHeroes website than if you did not offer any cards. This of course automatically leads to more and more potential viewers becoming aware of your stream. In addition, this keeps you in people's minds, builds a brand, and best of all, significantly strengthens the bond between you and your viewers!
2.2 Advantages as a viewer
The key advantage of StreamHeroes is that it's completely free for you! In addition, as a Twitch fan, you have the opportunity to collect points solely by watching and thus receive cards of your favorite streamers. In addition, we would like to awaken the "hunter-gatherer" instinct in you with StreamHeroes. Because we are already a huge community, there is a leaderboard, daily quests, and many other things that will make you compare yourself with other users and compete against them. If the streamer you're watching has StreamHeroes alerts enabled, you'll even show up in his stream when you unlock one of the cards. So the question is not what benefits StreamHeroes offers, but what benefits it does NOT offer. Namely, as a regular viewer of various streams, you get the points and can prove to the world that you are a loyal fan!
3 StreamHeroes - How it works
Registering with StreamHeroes is as simple as connecting directly to your Twitch account. To do so, simply click on the "Register" button and follow the instructions. From now on, your Twitch account is connected to your StreamHeroes account, and you can start collecting energy.
Which brings us to the keyword. What you're collecting on StreamHeroes is called energy. You can compare this energy to the classic experience points in a video game - the more you watch, the more energy you get. After registering, you automatically collect 1 x energy for 5 minutes of watchtime, so you don't have to do anything but watch your favorite streamers - totally easy, right? When you have collected enough energy, you can convert it into so-called coins, which you can use to perform many different actions. Of course, you can also use your collected energy to unlock the coveted cards of your streaming heroes. This is possible if the streamer you've been watching has created a StreamHeroes profile and their own cards.
Depending on how many card levels your favorite streamer has created, the cost of the next card will change. You can unlock your first StreamHeroes card after only 30 minutes - because then you will have collected enough energy (6 x) to craft an LVL1 card. There are up to 5 card levels and the requirements are staggered accordingly. For example, for an LVL2 card you need 6 LVL1 cards, for an LVL3 card you need 6 LVL2 cards, and so on.
