So a couple day ago a saw an interesting conversation in global chat (yeah it happen sometimes). So in case people don’t know what is Mixer, this is a free application similar as Twitch. It is used to stream during your gameplay. But Mixer got one particularity, it got an option to share control.
What it mean? It mean people can stream and then decide to pass the control to a watcher and then the watcher can play for that person.
The watcher doesn’t even need to have the game installed since he play from the streamer account. So let say someone suck or really hate gw, he just need to ask a strong player in his team to play for him.
So if this person usually score 3/2(6000 points) he got better chance with a strong player to score 5/0(9000+ points) this is a difference of 3000 points. You might say 3000 points isn’t alot but, in top bracker it could make the difference between #1 and #2 and if you do it for 10 person, it’s +30k points on the board.
Now we are far from the “i tell you what move to do and you do it” the watcher literally take the control of your game.
So is it cheating or not? No callout and try to stay civil please. It’s just a discussion and i am curious to see what people think about it
