Even though the TwitchPlaysPokémon stream has been moved to a dedicated server, such as the one used only for major events such as the League of Legends Championship Series, it has been causing serious problems for the streaming service.
Twitch director for customer experience, Jason Maestas, explained that Twitch is doing everything that it can to fix the issues.
However, Nintendo Life reported that,
“this change is still not resolving one of the major problems in relation to the chat. The chat, a vital component of this social experiment, has been hit with an overwhelming amount of commands at some times, creating problems across the website. Streamers who stream during the peak hours of TwitchPlaysPokémon are usually unable to see their personal chat, due to the clogging of the infrastructure. Maestas stated that some problems are still prevalent, and the company is attempting the fix the “fundamental issues.”
The stream currently has over 70,000 viewers, over 17 million views, and is attempting to reach the top of the Pokémon Tower in Lavender Town.
