Sub Bosses & Giveaways – Top Donors – Viewer Day Moved!

Sub Giveaways!

I want to start hooking people up with giveaways. There will be some game giveaways and maybe in-game dota items. I haven’t fully decided how this is going to work but the first giveaway winner is russ3141 because he’s been a gamewisp sub for over 8 months now! Yes I know this isn’t a random draft giveaway, I’m just hooking up russ because he’s silently supported stream for so long.

The reason I haven’t done many giveaways in the past is because I want to build an actual community instead of getting people who only show up for giveaways.

Sub Discord Channel

It exists. I’m going to start working on making it better but for now it just exists.

!bhos – Fight a Gamewisp Boss in Chat!

All of my GameWisp subs will now be fightable in the boss fights. Invoke a boss battle by typing !bhos. The loot that the boss drops will be 300 bhosCoins x Tier(1-5). For example Bola6 is a Tier 2 sub so he would drop 600 bhoscoins if defeated!

Top Donors List -All Time & Monthly + Sub List

After each stream I’ll be updating the Monthly Donor List + Sub List. Since I just got back from Vacation we’ll do May + June for the Monthly List. The monthly list will restart on the first of the month but I’ll keep the top 10 from the previous month until there are 10 new donors. The all time top 10 list will be updated at the end of the month.

Monthly top 10 (May-Current):

1 Bigmanontrain $70.00
2 BOLA6 $59.98

Text to Speech Twitch Bot : How to by Navetz

Click here to find the YouTube Video if it doesn’t load above.

Follow these easy steps to build a text to speech twitch bot:

  1. Install Node.js
  2. Create a text-to-speech directory for your bot.
  3. Open a Node Command Prompt and type cd text-to-speech.
  4. Type npm init and click enter until it’s configured.
  5. Type npm install say followed by npm install tmi.js
  6. Get your auth password for tmi.js. Make sure you’re logged in with your bot account. Oh btw you need a bot account.
  7. Open Sublime text editor and safe a new file called index.js inside of your text-to-speech directory.
  8. Paste the following code and replace your password with yours.


var tmi = require('tmi.js');
var say = require('say');

//BOT CONNECTION OPTIONS
var options = {
	options: {
		debug: false
	},
	connection: {
		cluster: "aws",
		reconnect: true
	},
	identity: {
		username: "bhosbot",
		password: ""
	},
	channels: ["navetz"]
};

var client = new tmi.client(options);
client.connect(); 

client.on("chat", function (channel, userstate, message, self) {
	say.speak(userstate.username + " says " + message);
});



 

That’s it, you now have a basic text to speech twitch bot! I’m sure a lot of you will find fun ways to extend the functionality!

Risk: Fuel for the gambling addicts

New way to gamble on stream is !risk. Win or lose bhosCoins with a slew of great random dota scenarios. Don’t forget to pay your slave. Might re-add some through gambling commands.

Rick and Morty Soundpack

20 new sound effects on stream, check them all out here. 5 of the 20 are only accessibly by GameWisp Subscribers, and they’re pretty f-ing awesome.

New games for Viewer day.

All the games from the Jackbox party packs are now available for us to play. There are a couple more too like Golf with Friends and … sorry my memory fails me.

Overall Stream Upgrades

There are a bunch of upgrades throughout stream. We now have multiple pages on this site as hubs for stream content:

http://navetz.com/commands/

http://navetz.com/sound-effects/

http://navetz.com/ranks/

http://navetz.com/bhoscoins/

Todo:

Finish up commands page.
Take poll and change games to whisper command.
Plan more workout streams.
Get back to youtube content once improvements to stream quality are done.
Host more events.
Use the new node dota2 API to enhance bhosbot

 

bhosCoins

bhosCoin Banner

They’re here to stay. R.i.p protein. FeelsBadMan :gun:

Reason for the change?

Protein is hard to use as a currency, you always have to define that it’s grams of protein. bhosCoins on the other hand are it’s own unit of measurement so it will make for better in game integration, bot replies, and overall usage of the currency.

bhosCoin the emote.

You’re going to start seeing the bhosCoin emote, it’s been submitted to frankerfacez and bttv and awaiting emote approval. Where are you going to see it? Everywhere. bhosCoin is going to start showing up in a lot of bot commands and I’ll be using them a lot 😀 You can see the bhosCoin emote here. Oh the coin is also my logo so I’m sure you can probably find it in 5 different places on this page alone.

Eulogy for Protein.

I’d like to put out a brief eulogy for our beloved protein currency.

Protein, you’ve pulled us though many sticky situations. Remember when !ding-ding-ding was only 350 grams of your muscle building, hormone altering, testosterone boosting juicy goodness? Know who members? Stream members. They member when they traded you to let the world know it ain’t how hard you hit; it’s about how hard you can get hit, and keep moving forward. How much you can take, and keep moving forward. Protein, may all of your grams be injected into our asses for all the future workouts that we’ll do on stream in your honor. R.I.P Protein.

R.I.P. Workout Session

May 16th, 2017. We’re having a workout session tomorrow to honor our protein, our lost currency. Join me at 3pm PST. 

!Say

Announcing the new text to speech command that viewers can use to “!say” messages to navetz while he’s in game.

Cost: 1 gram of protein per character.

Shameless: 
D <  $5 = 100 grams of protein per $
D < $10 = 150 grams of protein per $
D > $10 = 200 grams of protein per $

It’s 5:53am. I’ve been brainstorming different ways to implement some custom bot functionality through our beloved bhosbot and I decided I would finally get to finish something I’ve been thinking about for a long time. One of the hardest things to do as a Dota 2 streamer is to try and effectively keep up with chat. When you’re try-harding you need every ounce of attention to gain that sweet sweet MMR so as of right now I’m introducing the new !say command which will hopefully let me have my cake and eat it too.

Viewers can now use !say and trade their precious protein for a moment of fame and glory. A text-to-speech custom built bot will read you message out loud to navetz. I expect there to be some abuse and possibly a little buggy during the first couple days of use but we’ll adapt!

During the next couple weeks I will be trying to mix up streaming strategies a bit to try and attract some new followers, stream has been a bit stagnant in growth lately so I’m going to take this opportunity to try some new things such as !say only streams and changing the way / amount I interact with viewers.

November of Navetz 2016

Remember remember the month of November when Navetz was busy as fuck.
His ISP and his MMR, dropped and they dropped and they dropped.
December is here so we look in the rear and realize is wasn’t so bad
November was our best month ever so and for that I’m overly glad 🙂

Positives of the November

  • A lot of new highly active viewers!
  • Drunk stream Kappa.
  • Made progress on lag issues.
  • Concurrent viewers!

Negatives

  • Stream lag: This was the worst month of lag but we’re getting through it
  • Time Limitations: I was unable to stream as much as I would like. Had to do some irl stuff to make $ so I can keep streaming every day 🙂
  • MMR: going back up don’t you worry.

Summary

Aside from being insanely busy November has been incredibly fun. I am very close to finishing everything I need to get back to streaming full time and having a more solid schedule. With the Boston Major starting I will try to stream around it as much as possible. We have managed to get my internet stabilized and we are doing everything possible to eliminate stream lag. December will be a better month!

October 2016 Review – Fuck V-Media

If you don’t care about my internet issues just skip this months review.

My story with V-Media so far.

  • First contact VMedia on Sept 16th regarding speed issues after trying everything possible to solve the problem myself. They said they would investigate.
  • I called vmedia back on Sept 19th and vmedia said that cogeco had found an issue and it has been fixed an hour prior to my call. After that I checked my voicemail and had a recording from vmedia that was left prior to this conversation stating that there was no issues with the internet.
  • Issues persist so I called back and Vmedia said there was network congestion in our area and there would be upgrades done on the 26th of Sept. I asked Vmedia to call Cogeco to find out if upgrades would be done in my area specifically and what upgrades would be done. The technical support manager said he would do this but never called back.
  • Came back from a work conference in San Diego on oct 3rd and the internet was still not working.
  • Vmedia said Cogeco would now be doing additional network upgrades on October 26th. They said there was nothing else the could do.
  • I requested a technician be sent out and they agreed (although they did not want to at first and never suggested it).
  • Technician found corroded outdoor connections and had to replace a wire that had been chewed through by animals. I have pictures. This helped the connection slightly, but it is still highly unstable.
  • The technician showed a graph of the nodes in our area and explained that there was no congestion in my location. Vmedia continues to claim otherwise.The technician said that they would share the data about the network nodes with vmedia if it was requested. Clearly the did not even attempt to solve this.
  • The technician said that if replacing the corroded connections and the broken wires didn’t fix the internet it was likely a problem with the modem or something entirely different.
  • After speaking with multiple representative about the issues persisting they insisted they would be fixed on the 26th of October, they were not.
  • After I left a message on Thursday Oct 27th they contacted me (using the wrong secondary number on the account that I specifically told them not to call) and asked to run modem diagnostics. They had not even suggested this before and I didn’t know it was an option, I suggested it could be a modem issue because of what the technician who came told me.
  • I received a call back today Oct 31st from customer support who told me the internet speeds on their website say “up to” X Mpbs and there was nothing more they could do to fix the internet and could not continuously send out technicians to look into the problem. I insisted I needed the internet fixed and he transferred me to technical support.
  • Technical support said they would call Cogeco regarding the modem diagnostics and put my issue in high priority. They agreed to call me back on the 31st of Oct.
  • I received a call back on the 3rd of Nov and they said nothing is wrong with the modem. When asked what the errors mean they don’t know.
  • The battle continues my friends.
In addition to all of this V-Media consistently lies to me and their managers avoid calling me to fix this issue. They are too cheap to attempt to actually fix my problem or send out a technician, all they care about is their bottom line and not weather or not they’re providing a service their customers are paying for.
V-Media gets an F for fucking up so hard that I have had to contact the better business bureau and the CCTS regarding these issues.
I WOULD LOVE TO TALK ABOUT HOW WE HAD ANOTHER AMAZING SUCCESSFUL MONTH OF STREAM. I WOULD LOVE TO SEE MY VIEWERSHIP RISING AND FIND ACTUAL THINGS THAT CAN BE IMPROVED UPON IN STREAM BUT UNTIL V-MEDIA CAN FIX MY INTERNET I WILL HAVE TO KEEP FIGHTING WITH THEM INSTEAD -> FeelsBadMan :gun:

 

September Review and Plans for October

September is in the books and I couldn’t be happier that I get to start October with functional internet! Or at least it’s suppose to be, only time will tell.

For the month of September we managed to hit improvements in most streaming numbers, but most importantly we improved on concurrent viewers.

Positives of the September

  • Amazing birthday stream -> a hair cut to remember.
  • Dota improvements (knowledge and skill)
  • Various stream enhancements including a new i7-6700k CPU + mobo + 16gigs of ram! New sound effects and commands added as well.
  • Great community engagement!
  • Viewer days are getting better!

Negatives

  • Stream lag: unfortunately my ISP let me down hard this month. I had to cancel numerous streams and alter streaming times based on bad internet service (Cogeco I’m looking at you)
  • Slow growth: likely caused by internet issues, but the growth was slower than prior months and I need to work harder to promote the stream
  • Hard to reintroduce fitness to the stream but don’t you worry I have a plan 😉
  • AnalyticsStream Hatchet (analytics for twitch) went down without a word from anyone until the day of twitchcon, basically no stats tracked for all of Sept

Improvements and Changes!

  • Schedule. I’ll do my best to always have an accurate schedule posted or let you know the day before if there will be changes
  • New Stream Production Mode – Dota stream time will be limited to 6 hours a day. Afterwards I will switch to a two creative stream thats dedicated time for me to work on the stream. I’ll be in discord and I’ll still have chat up but I will be working on engaging with other streamers, connecting via social media, and any other stream improvements I can do during this time.
  • Content Creation! I’ll be starting a YouTube and twitch series called: Heros of Dota. Each day I’ll release a new video.
  • New games! Wait what??? Navetz playing something other than dota 2? This isnt something I necessarily want to do becsuse I still have so much improving to do with dota but I need to start bringing other viewers to my stream. We’ll be adding some party/social games to our repertoire. If I lose thee games of Dota in a row we’ll instantly switch to something I can play with viewers. I may also plan Additional games but if I do you’ll know about it ahead of time.
  • Fitness reintegration! From now on we’ll build up to fitness time. It will be scheduled for a certain time during each stream with a countdown displayed on stream so people know when we’re switching to workout mode!
  • Developing code for stream. Bouncing a lot of ideas around right now but I’ll be building a custom bot to make stream more interactive.
  • New graphics and overlays: coming soon! (Emotes too)
  • More SFX!
  • New ways to use protein! Will be part of the new bot 🙂
  • Timers: We’re going to start using on screen timers in a big way! Example: Time until fitness stream: 6hr25min. Cooking Stream Begins in: 4.5hrs. Playing new game in: 2hrs!

Pondering these Ideas

  • Vlogs if there is any interest
  • Beginning to contact companies for sponsorships
  • Building social media bots

Update: Stream Hatchet relanched and I have statistics to share.

Average Viewership
As you can see viewership wasn’t bad considering how poor my internet connection was for the month!

 

New followers
Follower rates were much slower. again I think this is because new viewers would leave once the stream started buffering.

August 2016 Navetz Stream Recap

Well august is done so lets do a little post month summary to talk about how things are going! We started out rough because the international was definitely worth watching over my stream but afterwards we settled back to normal. Stream numbers were a bit lower for a while so I just tried to stream as often as possible to make sure people looking for a new streamer could find one.

Oh and there was that time I was top dota 2 streamer after the finals of the international but then my internet went out ……………………… :*(

Numbers Analysis – these stats are from the 18th until the 31st because I didn’t start using streamhatchet to track my data until then.

Average Viewers Per hour

Average Viewers Per Hour

 

We’ve got a nice little summary here to show what the stream is like during different times of the day.


Average Viewership

Average Viewership

These numbers were actually HIGHER before the international, I’ll keep working hard to get them back up. We have organically reached in the 40’s for viewers one time so that’s pretty cool too 😀


New Followers

Followers

Follower numbers are actually starting to dip quite a bit but that’s okay, it just means I need to stay persistent!


Notable Stream Stuff

3.5k MMR – Yes I’m finally getting kind of maybe a little bit good at Dota 2! I’ve been having a lot of fun improving and playing this fantastic game.

Cooking Stream – Yes that’s right, I’ve started doing a weekly cooking stream. Cheesy chicken balls have never tasted so good.

Social Media All Updated – We now have facebook.com/navetz  set up as my gaming facebook page along with http://twitter.com/navetz and http://plus.google.com/+navetz

Youtube Welcome Video – I swear I don’t drink hair gel. http://youtube.com/navetz

Fan Made Meme Gallery – Holy fuck I love this: https://www.facebook.com/media/set/?set=a.1191490724246516.1073741829.1185722838156638&type=1&l=09b23bab6f

And some other stuff that I can’t remember right now.


For all the donations. Thanks!!! A shout out to some of the biggest financial supports of the stream.
