Mad Ani live EVE stream petition

Mad Ani 24/7 live stream

Purpose: Neutral EVE news correspondent capturing the largest fights. Showing the veterans, the noobs, the high sec carebears and people outside of EVE, what happens when large power blocks decide to go on all out war. Teaching others what to expect in their future endeavors.

Started streaming: 17th January 2013

Amount of known EVE subscribers: 500+ (using buddy & CCP affiliate program)

The reason for creating this post here is due to the fact that I start full time employment now. This means we will miss a lot of the large fights (unless you're taking part of course). There will be no neutral point of view, no amazing camera angles, cinematic views and a laid back approach to showing the world about PVP on these large scales. A lot of my viewers have said throughout this year that I should contact CCP about hiring me. In my mind if CCP see this as a great publicity avenue, then they would approach me. Lately it has become a lot more vocal from my viewers, this needs to continue. Before I contact anybody, I was told to create this so-called petition.

Stream stats:

• 2,756,215 visitors since 17th January
• 8125 Twitch followers
• 24/7 Music
• 8365 concurrent viewers (NEW RECORD)!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! This is massive for an EVE stream

Who would like me to continue this full time as CCP Mad Ani?



Zoomed out all the time / crap quality? Look at the following screenshots. Quality settings are maxed out on the new PC. Go look back at the fights I record, I get many people saying I get great camera angles. Next...

Streaming from Laptop? Yes just started using it again since I started a new job. It's more stable than the powerhouse desktop I have, which has been proven to stream the biggest fights in full detail. I unboxed the new PC parts live on stream and took photos of it all setup when it was completed. Saying I squandered the money on other things, slanderous. Next...

Limiting twitch chat to subscribers only breaking TOS? It was for 30 minutes to stop the spammers. 1st and only time then a bot moderator disable the welcome message spam. Actually I am allowed to moderate the channel as I see fit. Also CCP have froze their chat a few times when they stream Fanfest/Alliance Tournaments. Next...

AFK all day on the undocks? Yes I'm at work. Prior to this I'd run roaming fleets and run some events. I've caught almost every major fight out there, single-handed without a team. Alarm clocked for a lot of the late night ops and streamed entire 8 hour long fights too. Next...

Snapping and screaming at people asking questions? Blatantly people running out of excuses to troll with. I've met 100+ EVE pilots in London in person, the people on the stream that ask questions always get an answer. If it's been said a fair few times, I'll say I just explained it and for those that just tuned in will get an answer in about 10 minutes time. Not once have I snapped at somebody for asking questions. Very chilled out and friendly character, always liked teaching others. Next...

Unlicensed music? Heard of Spotify and YouTube? Go listen to every single Twitch stream out there, 99% of them have music. Next...

What would this stream turn into if it was to be an actual job and not free marketting? The 1st days in EVE are the most daunting and put off many new players. I'd be introducing them and showing them what's to come in the future if they stick to it. The music would be the EVE orchestra symphony. People submitting their own underground songs which are related to space and dramatical scores for when things get intense. Next...

0 people tuned in right now? You probably took that screen shot when I had to reset my PC. 150+ viewers during the quietest time zone. Without advertising the stream, 800+ tune in because they expect me to be streaming it. Peaking lately around 1500-3500 viewers when the big wars take place. The record is 8365 viewers. The numbers speak for themselves, people find the stream useful, intel, nice insight to nullsec for those that are new or just dwell in high sec, the music etc. Half of the trolls in here actually tune in to watch it. Next...

Me posting with alts? Nope, everyone knows all my alts. They've been posted numerous times. Again trolls running out things. Next...

RMT'ing? Raffles? People give me ISK and I give it back to anyone that's tuned in. Don't have to be a sub. I even gave away lots of ISK on my Birthday. Largest amount given away was 11bil ISK. Next was 5 plexes in 1 go. Plexes go to subscribers because I can. The cash has pretty much all been spent on this PC with 4 monitors. You should see the electricity bill too. I donated 2 months worth of advert commission to charity. Next...

Why did I make this original post? Yes viewers asked me to do it since after I created this stream back in January. Publicity due to the fact I am no longer on call 24/7 to stream the events. EN24 even made an article about it. It got your attention didn't it? Be sure to tune in when there's a huge fight. If it's not happening when I'm at work or sleeping, then I will be there to stream it.

Thank you all for bumping this thread. Been awesome and done exactly as I hoped Cool

EDIT #2:

As some of you are struggling to read I've highlighted the fact that the paragraph was not written by me. The bot filtered out the long text and I copied and pasted what Mario666 said, not me. The next line is what I said "It's not the 1st time he's done that either". So once again the trolls are doing their best to pluck anything possible from this. Sorry boys!

YEAH CCP we need Mad_ani .. hire him :)

Dying is not scary, It's almost like we've been prepering for it our whole live's. But it was very sad. I didn't want to go. I love my life. I no longer try to be right. I choose to be happy.

CCP ... Mad Ani has generated sooo much free publicity and added players' to you customer roles. A good business decision to hire him full time to continue. A bad business decision not to.

Hire this man!!! He has already abandoned all ties to other groups in Eve and has been the greatest source of publicity for Eve over the past year, surpassing even the Alliance Tournament at time (even when they were on concurrently).

I agree! I only decided to give EVE a chance because of his stream and have been playing since June. Even though there was the trial, I only decided to subscribe to the game after talking to him about what I should expect ahead. He is a great guy and has surely been advertising EVE to everybody on his stream and bringing new people in. He deserves to be hired for his work!
