I am not sure whether I don't feel anything, considering I've never gotten a good drop as it probably didn't exist in the first place, or feel that the incentive has been lost completely.

So glad I got the T4 Italian battleship for being a valued Prime Gaming player, just so i could buy it again, no way around it when early access came out --- thanks for the special gift ship WG -- great planning on your part as is the norm.

Alright, since Epic drop is gone, another form of "good drop" should come out.

How about some perm camos? (Ex: +75%XP,+25% credits, - 50% service fee, etc) for 15hr watching? 

Make this camo for low tire only, so no sale loss in T9 or T10 camo market. Considering that no one would buy a 50%XP camo unless it has a fancy drawing.

When does the new interface start? I'm watching a livestream right now and I'm not seeing a progress bar. Do I need to enable it somehow?

Unless I've misread the news, it might be tomorrow?

Twitch rewards

On the first Thursday of the update, all three types of rewards become available and remain claimable for a full week, until they are refreshed the following Thursday.

I really don't care about sleek and informative ... and wonder why it's deemed more comfortable to have to claim the prize versus having it just drop?

implementation of a new sleek, comfortable, and informative UI.

... and this sounds really "sleek" ...

 If you receive a drop while you're logged in to World of Warships, you'll need to log out and log back in, or to restart the game.

Think I'll just opt out and not worry about it anymore.  I guess this a Twitch, not WG change ... tell 'em it's got 1 vote for a fail.

I'll just play the game, not jump thru Twitch hoops.  Thanks

At best sounds like 2 Twitch drops and 1 mission drop. Cause i dont care where the purple crate comes from, it is the drop. And a mission chain i dont consider as a drop, it’s a mission....

I have no plan on caring about twitch drops anymore. Too many hoops to jump through for 3 camos.

Agreed, and from the description and screenshots, it seems like you only get the progress bar on desktop, and have to be on desktop to claim. I know there are some people that watch streams on their smart TVs (including at least one that posted on the reddit thread for this change), and I (and probably many others) watch streams on mobile devices like tablets and phones. Which means, if the rewards need to be claimed on desktop, there’s potentially a large part of the playerbase that now may not be able to get their drops.

Hadn't even thought of that aspect ... the "rewards" aren't enough to be concerned about ... but it's the streamers who will probably be impacted most.  I heard one say this morning that when Twitch drops had stopped once before his viewership dropped by 40%.  That's crazy, but just shows there are those who only click on a stream for the rewards, regardless of how small they may be.

Yep! Some brilliant work there by the planners.

How come I am not seeing the new interface from the inventory? As I understand the release, we now got to work at getting stream treats? Maybe its time to let the stream watching go.

I am watching the "official" World of Warships stream with Mr. Conway. They are speaking German.

I don't see any progress bar. Where is this thing suppose to appear?

If anyone is wondering you can check your Twitch drop status by clicking on your user icon at the top right.

OK so i use to have Twitch drops working. Have disconnected and reconnected account multiple times (last show 1/26) and on twitch shows last drop 2 months ago. Who or where do i put a ticket in for twitch not working.

Drops you have received are accessed within their corresponding games. Log into the game to experience your new content. You may have a limited time to redeem your Drops, so log in soon after receiving them. You can manage your connections here. Learn more about Drops.

No worries, I can't find it in the text, I'll have an answer for you first thing in the AM. As far as I know, the timeframe mechanic has not changed though.

It really sucketh that the Stream missions for obtaining Italian Tokens once again excludes Co-op players.  they are really trying to drive us from the game...
