    Hey guys,

    As many of you know we have a new bot. I am going to talk about a few of the features that it has and that I hope it will have in the near future.

    BrickleBits (!bricklebits)
    This is the currency of OLimpyus. Players will earn points every 15 minutes while the stream is live, and every 60 minutes while I am offline. SUBSCRIBERS will earn a bonus to their points for their extra support.

    You can check your current total by type in the command above and see how many BrickleBits you currently have. This may change in the future to where you have to come here to the forums to check this total, but at this time that is not possible so the checks will have to be done in the chat. Please try and control checking this every 30 seconds =)

    BrickleBits can be used for BankHeists, more on that below. They will also be used for giveaways and more.

    BankHeists (!bankheist #)
    Currently these can happen every 30 minutes, and need to be initiated by someone in chat. Role play this however you choose. The # in the command above is how much money/BrickleBits you wish to pledge towards to heist. These will be used for guns, ammo, gear, getaway cars, you name it. There is a chance you will be killed and if you are you lose your investment. Those that win reap all the spoils.

    The more people that participate the bigger the bank that the crew will go after. This means bigger LOOTS!

    In the long run I hope to change this to a more Fantasy themed option, but for now the BankHeists will have to do.

    Other Commands

    !bankheist x : Command to start a bank heist and gamble some of your points against the bot. Survive, and you will walk away rich!
    !joinarena x : Command to join an arena and wager some of your points in a fight against other viewers. Survive, and you walk away richer!

    Couple of questions,
    First: !btag . What is "the global database" and why would I want to be entered into it?
    Two, the rank system. Is that starting as of Monday (3/3/14) or will it be backdated to whenever the individual followed/subscribed?

    Great questions Gwydo.

    the Btag is there to track peoples Battle Tag in the event I run a giveaway where you guys can donate gold from Diablo or WoW to enter giveaways.

    The rank system came with the bot, so there is no way for me to track time watched and such prior to the bots installation on Saturday night. So it will be from this point forward.

    Can honestly say not a fan of this... I get that its new so everyone is obsessed but its really turning me off chatting because no one cares about stream anymore

    Yeah, it's kinda hard to hold a conversation when everyone is more concerned with "Bricklebits".

    Once we have the forum integration the chat will be more how you remember it. Not only that, it's new. It's the new shiny thing and soon enough chat will be as it used to be.

    Actually this has been a bit of a catch 22. Right now because it is the new shiny object people are checking their Bricklebits and wanting to play in the games more often than I would like.

    But, this has also actually lead to several people who didn't normally take part in chat doing so.

    So far it has not hindered my ability to keep up with the conversation. And many of the channels I have found that have had this installed for a while see the borderline excessive point checking and such calm down and it has become a major boon to the channel.

    As Ash has stated, the long term goal is to make the points checkable through the forum here and that will eliminate a lot of the chat spam.

    I appreciate you guys bearing with me through the growth process of the stream.

    All good Limpy... people will calm down with the heist / bit spam. Its a nice way to promote interaction with the lurkers...

    I like that it promotes interaction between users. It's lighthearted good fun. The novelty will die off soon enough.

    I am in the same boat with Synlenia. That being said, as a 30+ year old it is natural to greet sudden changes negatively. However, I for one have come to accept our new brickle overlord. It's tricky. On one hand I would like the stream to stay the same way I found it but on the other hand I want the stream and Limpy to succeed even further and keep growing. But I try and not be selfish so I can only trust the judgment of Limpy in these matters. I believe in you buddy (sorry i've been an asshat).

    Peace,
    Gorthac
