Yup, Neverwinter has less than 100 viewers right now, during Twitch's (NA) peak hours, on "launch" day.
Ellohime, Neverwinter's biggest remaining streamer and supporter, announced today he's basically done with this game and won't be streaming Neverwinter anymore.
Every other big time streamer that streamed Neverwinter has already quit the game or got banned a month+ ago.

I personally couldn't be arsed to watch someone play on MMO, not really a spectator sport consider the (arguably) main draw to the game is progression which happens at a fairly slow rate (provided you aren't dumping RL money into the AH)
Because Neverwinter sucks and he knows and says it sucks. He built his stream around Neverwinter, but there's nothing to do in the game. He even said Neverwinter is not an interesting game to watch someone play.
He's been streaming other games because he's been bleeding viewership whenever he streams Neverwinter. He's tried everything he could to bring in and keep viewers like dying his beard rainbow colors and level up 6 alts to 60 in 24 hours each class. Nothing works. The game has no interest on Twitch because this game has no content, had tons of bugs, and Cryptic pissed off thousands of viewers / video game nerds because they banned so many streamers due to their own ineptitude by releasing an incomplete and buggy game.
I am now going to use my amazing psychic powers to let you know how suffused with care I am.
See what I bolded? What the heck do you expect? It's a brand-freaking-new game pretty much. All new MMOs start out with little content and bugs - it's to be expected.
I guess WoW kiddies got spoiled with new "xpacs" not having any bugs, but WoW is polished. When it first started it had tons of bugs and little content.
you can see it here http://www.twitch.tv/ellohime/b/419616029
He and other streamers, me included, will take a break from neverwinter and wait for module 1
Dont take it from me, watch it yourself.
I can only talk for myself,
the end content and as how GG is run now, its not very fun to broadcast.
For me its not versatile and interesting enough to build a stream around it or play it.
Wrath - 60 Great Weapon Fighter - Mindflayer
Envy's Guardian Fighter DPS Conqueror Guide
Someone sounds butt hurt.
The people complaining are not doing it because they're obsessed with this game, but because they're obsessed with the game that this game was supposed to be based on. It's called Dungeons & Dragons. If you try it, you'll discover why people are griping.
Summary: I don't care about Twitch.
BTW those people that created their account May, lots of those people are the ones that got banned - and had to create new accounts.
Clue: Twitch doesn't make or break a game. That's just silly.
So it's not sad, for me at least.
Play the new content at the start
Or watch someone play the new content at the start
When a game goes from 4000 plus viewing THIS FORUM on the 4th week of open beta and in 2 more weeks drops to less than a 300 average something is very wrong.
Elf Control Wizard - Dragon
i mean; usually if you can play the game you wont watch some other guy playing it.
that means that
1. there arent many streamers atm
2. a lot of people play NW and thats the reason they dont stream or watch streams cuz its boring to watch someone else if you can just start the game and play it by yourself.
Stream views on currently new games usually explode because the people want to see the new game if its any good before they try it out for themselves.
after that amount of time they play the game or do something else.
and thats why you only see 4-10k viewers in the first weeks of a game. after that it drops on normal level.
Unless 3 critical change made before it.
-Fix Bugs... ****ing fix bugs.
-Freeform characters like their senior game, Champions Online...
-BoP Tier 1&2 and PvP sets. Peoples dont play the content and skips the part where he has it. I'm avoiding Temple of the Spider because i already have Shadow Weaver Tunic from AH.
