1. MisterXombii: Organizing Collections Per Rarity
Making viewers interested in custom collections is all about showing them their potential and the strongest interactions they’ll redeem on stream. By sorting your collection in a descending rarity order (Legendary – Epic – Rare – Common), you’ll allow viewers to see the best cards first, and you will increase the chances that they’ll feel compelled to get packs.
Another great point is to make sure any cards with sound effects are set to automatically complete so that you don’t have to go into the redemptions page and clear them manually.
2. MPICreates: Gifting Pack To Your Mods
We’ve touched on pack giveaways in the previous blog post, but getting your mods involved in the process can go a long way to make sure you can educate your viewers on what Streamloots is, what do the packs and cards do, and the process of acquiring and redeeming your collections.
When you create new collections or cards, providing some free packs to mods and viewers are ways to sample what’s new on your channel and generate hype for other viewers who are unsure of how Streamloots works and its advantages. This is a great way to create a virtuous cycle in your stream, where new viewers trying out Streamloots impact other viewers and get them on board as well.
3. OctagonRon: Inspiration From Other Streamers
When starting to use Streamloots, it’s possible to feel the possibilities are too strong, leading to a block in creativity. The best advice to go around that issue is to allow yourself to look at what other creators are doing and take some notes and inspiration for your own collections and settings. Browse collection pages of streamers that play the same games as you or some that do completely different content but whose ideas you can adapt into your channel.
Many streamers have started successful collections by adapting ideas they’ve found in the Streamloots community. One great step is to get in touch with other streamers directly and brainstorm ideas and how you can improve your collections in the beginning. A great way to do so is to participate actively on the Streamloots Discord, so make sure to stop by and say hi!
4. Nobsyde: Assigning and Testing The Right Rarity To Cards
When you create your own custom cards or collections, it’s essential to keep in mind how powerful are the card and interactions. If it requires something with a major impact on your stream, like significantly affecting your gameplay or requesting you to do a demanding or unique action, you should consider giving that card an Epic rarity instead of Rare or Common. Restricting the rarity means that the card will be harder to obtain in your packs, increase its perceived value by users, and feel special any time it’s redeemed.
If you are not sure how much impact a card can have if viewers redeem it repeatedly, no matter its rarity, test by setting it as a limited edition card. You can always change this setting afterward, and this way you’ll be able to gauge how do you feel about the interference and disruption the card can create to you and your viewers.
5. (BONUS) Priest from TheGCU: The Mass Editing Feature
This tip was already mentioned by PaulieEsther on his partner advice, but it’s such a big deal for your first Streamloots week that we decided to include it again per Priest’s suggestion so we can make sure you won’t miss it. If you select a group of cards, or even all of them at once, you’re able to edit and adjust settings to your selections in bulk through the mass edit feature.
This is a very useful tool not only to adjust the settings and features of your cards as you wish, but is a valuable way for you to test different configurations for your collections, knowing that you are able to adjust them quickly and at once.
