  • Twitch 2 different games, drop chance?

    Is it possible to have a chance of recieving items from 2 different games if they're running at the same time if you have 2 stream windows opened at the same time (whilst being logged in on the same account), or perhaps if you're watching 1 of the games via in-game DOTA-TV and the other via stream?

    Thanks.

    You'll not receive any item while watching via Twitch.tv

      This is false. If you're watching a stream whose caster has been (verified? Ticketed? Not sure on the proper term) by the tournament admin, and that caster is in a broadcaster slot for a game, and if you've bought and activated that tournament's ticket, and if your steam account is connected to your twitch account at twitch.tv/settings/connections, you are eligible to receive item drops.

      Also, as to OP's query, yes- you can be eligible in one game by watching via DotaTV and in another by watching an eligible Twitch stream- but you don't get doubled chances by watching the same game via both methods. I haven't tested watching multiple games via Twitch but I have no reason to believe you wouldn't be eligible in both as long as you meet the requirements mentioned above for both games.

          Just to confirm: Yesterday I was watching two NEL games - one in DotaTV and the other through ixmike88's stream who has drops enabled. I got a drop from ixmike88's game even though I was in DotaTV for the other.
