I have been streaming Puzzle and Dragons on Twitch for a brief period of time with only two short streams a week. I do have reasonably strong views by PAD standards, but I wish to improve the experience for both myself and viewers. While recovering from my eye surgery, I had a lot of time to think about the direction I want to take for my stream and came up with a lot of fun and exciting way to evolve my stream from a 5-star to 8-star status! The two most notable changes will be more streaming sessions to help catch people in different time zones along with implementing a viewership reward system that awards a currency from passively watching which can be redeemed for Fantastic prizes!
More streaming sessions!
People love watching me play with myself, in coop, with my Mantastic and Fantastic accounts. As such, I wish to provide more times in which you can be entertained while trying to provide streaming sessions that are more convenient for viewers who are not on the West Coast. Note all the following start times are in PST:
- Monday at 6pm
- Thursday at 3:30pm
- Friday at 3:30pm
- Saturday at 2pm
I will try my best to adhere to this schedule and may still shift times/days around as needed. The best way to stay informed is to follow my various social media platforms as I will make announcements for when I go live and any delays that may happen:

New currency system
One thing I always try to achieve while streaming is engaging my audience through verbal interaction and entertaining gameplay. However, I want to go above and beyond the average streamer by rewarding my viewers with an in-stream currency to give them more options to interact with me and have a lot of fun at the same time.
I had a test stream on Friday and one viewer (forgot the name, sorry!) suggested I name my currency Myracle Stones as it is both punny along with tying into my love for Myr. Viewers will earn 1 Myracle Stones every 3 minutes they spend watching (Oh look, it is just like stamina!) and there is a large list of rewards they can redeem that will have a message pop up on stream along with a flashing an image and audio component.
Silver Egg redemptions all cost 25 Myracle Stones
These are fun and quick ways to grab everyone’s attention and I won’t spoil the surprise of what each one does, you will just have to try them all!
Gold Egg rewards all cost 297 Myracle Stones
I am still thinking of other rewards to place in this tier and always open to suggestions
!boxreview <link to PadHerder/Pic of Box by Fav> – A quick on-stream box review
6-Star GFE Rewards all cost 750 Myracle Stones
These rewards are meant to be challenging to acquire and are truly Myraculous:
!makeitrain redeem – Make it rain 50 Myracle Stones to all current viewers. Everyone will love you long time
!singasong redeem – Mantastic will sing one of his favourite songs with YouTube providing a nice background ambiance
I will also be hosting raffles in which you can purchase tickets with Myracle Stones and a winner will be chosen at random. The more tickets you purchase, the more likely you will win. This will probably be used for viewer coop runs and will most likely be for a descend/rogue descend dungeon that is of an appropriate level.
Contests will allow you to gamble your Myracle Stones against other players during various events. You simply need to use the following commands along with the number of Stones you wish to enter.
!bet A is usually for YES
!bet B is usually for NO
Other contests may have more options so simply follow the prompts or listen on stream =)
I will also be giving out Myracle stones at random times or when I clear exceptionally challenging dungeons. I may also bestow Myracle Stones for favourable Godfest rolls etc. so just keep watching!
IAP Myracle Stones
You can also IAP Myracle Stones by donating to the stream! For every dollar you spend, you will be credited 50 Myracle Stones and works retroactively if you donated in the past before this system was implemented. Just give me a friendly reminder and I will credit your account accordingly. For example, $15 will yield 750 Myracle Stones and can be used to make me sing Karaoke….
Summary for Myracle Stones
Myracle Stones are meant to be a way to reward loyal viewers. The goal is the more you watch, the more you will earn and be able to spend. You can still send a WOW or other silver egg reward every 75 minutes so even short term viewers will have something to do.
I am open to suggestions and would love feedback if possible.
Looking for new Twitch Mods
I do foresee my stream growing and while I have a very healthy twitch chat that needs little moderation, I want to be prepared. In addition to basic chat moderation, I hope my new mods will also help answer questions and provide sage advice to other viewers. What I look for in a Twitch Mod is someone who has shown stream/site loyalty along with an eagerness to step up to the plate when I become too fixated on my PAD matching.
If you wish to be considered for a Twitch Mod, please leave a comment below along with your Twitch name and a brief explanation as to why you want to be a Mod.
I hope you are as excited as I am for all these big and Myraculous changes. The currency system will hopefully be a hit and hopefully entice more people to come by and watching my stream as well as providing another level of interaction with myself and other viewers. My goal is to achieve Twitch Partnership as it will unlock an additional level of content for viewers as well as providing another medium for you to support my work.
Please let me know what you think along with any suggestions you may have.
