Everybody agrees that streaming matters. Numbers show a correlation between watchtime and playtime, but correlation is not causality. As Twitch released the "extensions" in early 2018, the teams at Ubisoft and Azarus took on this opportunity to go into a quest to measure and meaningfully impact the way viewers engage with the game, looking to prove and optimize the "Twitch Riddle".


This session will give you insight on how to use casters in a more KPI-driven way, turning "media" investments into actual engagement for your game. This talk will also open your eyes to the power of extensions on Twitch and how interactivity on-stream can be a game-changer.

Intended Audience

Primarily for marketing managers looking at - data scientist curious on how they should account for eyeballs on stream
