The viewers can earn Drops for the tasks marked with the corresponding icon and only when the team they are watching completes the said tasks. Only 1 Drop can be earned per task.

I assume you can't open multiple tabs and watch multiple teams for multiple drops, right?

Last event I had 4 streams open all in different windows and was able to claim drops from them all when those teams would do an objective. Got around 13 drops

You assumption is probably correct, that has been true of all past events that I am aware of

nah, works fine, just need to keep bouncing around to catch them when they crash

or I did, anyway, but my internet sucks a bit

Last time I just popped out all the chats and monitored if the drop message came up across the top. As long as you are connected to chat you will get the drops, so it's easier on your pc and you can open like 30 at a time easily. Currently doing this again and it's working fine.

Is it just me or this tournament pretty boring the way its setup? Both this one and the EU one didn't keep my attention for long. Most viewers are only there for the lackluster drops and shit talk.

I stg who wants to watch people play tetris with tarkov loot. Not the cool tarkov tetris, literally just tetris with tarkov items instead of blocks....

Lvndmark WillerZ and Dylhero on one team is like the Brooklyn Nets of Twitch Rivals teams lol

ID: gyloxxi

Such a stacked team, no other team comes close. Kings of Tarkov for sure

ID: gykayk5

If you’re jealous just say that dude

Onepegg was pinned down in a bunker and managed to kill Landmark while he was sprinting down from a tower. His chat instantly got flooded by whiny fanboys calling him a rat lmao

I gotta say, I'm actually impressed Twitch Rivals has managed to setup a 1) Even more confusing list of objectives and 2) Setup an even worse tournament to watch as a fan.

This is just objectively boring fucking Tarkov. Not to mention every objective Lvndmark has completed has not populated a drop in chat for me.

ID: gymv4u2

Not all objectives give drops

ID: gymval9

Same. I managed to get one drop from a quest and that was it.

This tournament was also boring af to watch imo. People just sitting in menus more than half the time.

ID: gymvctb

Agreed. Literally the most boring crab walk rivals I’ve ever seen. Every streamer I’ve watched just gets shit on by a guy not moving and holding an angle. Sad.

Same drops than the EU Rivals? Can't wait to claim a LEGENDARY book!

I got a twitch rivals face mask yesterday, can I actually do anything with it?

ID: gykc4qn

ID: gykhhzb

Don't need a mask if you're vaccinated.

whenever the drops come for me the option to claim is greyed out... 🙁 any idea why?

11 : Anonymous2021/05/18 20:38 ID: gym4uho

Can you earn the drops from certain streamers by watching the main stream and going to whatever streamer does the task to activate a drop? or can you literally only get the drop if you’re actually watching at that time?

Anyone know why Lupo isn't playing? Or is he

ID: gym5kis

He's a bit burned out on Tarkov and had a really negative experience with Punisher. So he's probably not interested in doing a tournament right now.
