    Alpha 17 Stream Event Coming Soon

    The application process for the Alpha 17 Streaming Event has closed. Thanks to all who responded.

    Hi Guys,

    Roland here. Our Stream Team for Alpha 17 is official and we are excited for the upcoming streaming event. Please watch this forum as well as your favorite streamers for the announcement of when the event will take place. As soon as TFP is confident that they have an acceptable release candidate the stream team members will be informed of the exact weekend it will happen. Thanks for your patience. The complete list of streamers participating in the event are listed in the next few posts. I am still processing a few applications that came in before the deadline so there will be a few more additions but it looks like a great list.

    regards,

    Roland


    Spoiler: 
    Hey Survivalists,

    Folks Alpha 17 is still in the works, but we are looking ahead at the pending experimental release. That said we are recruiting streamers for early Alpha 17 streaming. We kept early streaming on previous releases to only 4 streamers who have done an amazing job so far.

    But for Alpha 17 we want to do something bigger. We know that there are many streamers out there who have played our game for their audiences and who would love to be a part of the pre-release streaming weekend. We also understand that 7 Days to Die is enjoyed by a larger international community representing several languages and picking only a handful of streamers wonít allow those fans to watch gameplay footage in their native language. To that end we are excited to announce that for Alpha 17 TFP is allowing open enrollment for early streaming.


    Here are the details:

    1. In order to qualify you must have as a minimum 5000 followers on Twitch and/or 5000 subscribers on YouTube.
    2. You must record an announcement to your viewers on your channel that you will be showing early footage of A17. It can be its own video or part of one of your regular episodes.
    3. You must send an email using your channelís email address to [email protected] and put ďA17 Early StreamingĒ in the subject title. In your email you must write a short explanation of why you want to stream A17 early to your viewers and include a link to the announcement video you made.
    4. Once we have verified that you are a content creator that qualifies we will add your email to a group list that will be sent the activation code for Alpha 17 on the day that the event will begin.

    Clarifications

    1) The announcement must be a video or a recorded clip from a stream that is posted on your channel. This is part of our verification that the video Is really from the channel it claims to be from.

    2) PLEASE have the link cued up to where you make the announcement if part of a larger episodic video.

    3) You must have the email you use to contact us posted on your channel. Personal emails unrelated to a specific channel will not work for obvious reasons you sly dogs.

    4) I want to emphasize that this is NOT a contest or a just a selection pool. If you have the numbers you qualify. So go ahead and do the announcement and release it.

    5) IMPORTANT: The activation code is simply a password to download the A17 update. It is not a steam key for the game. We are not giving the game away for free for this event. We actually want people who have played before and know what they're doing when they show A17. Get the game and play for a few weeks on A16 at the very least...


    Streaming FAQ

    Q: When is Alpha 17 coming out and when do the streamers get access to it.
    A: When its ready. The build is coming along fantastic but itís a pretty major overhaul, with significant work left to do. Bottom line is we donít have a development crystal ball. Projections of July are optimistic at best but we will never say never.


    Q: If Iím approved by TFP to stream Alpha 17 how do I get access.
    A: We plan to send out the access codes to the qualifying streamers on the Friday before the Monday (or Tuesday if necessary) that we will release A17-experimental allowing a full weekend prior to the public release.


    Q: What if I donít have 5000 but Iím super loyal and really want to stream A17 early
    A: We encourage you to do all you can to hype up and advertise your channel to get your followers/ subscriptions up to the minimum amount. If you donít reach the goal for A17, we plan to do this again for A18 and weíll welcome your participation for that event.


    Q: Do you have to have a presence on both Youtube and Twitch? What if I use a different provider?
    A: You only have to have a presence on one site where we can go to your channel via your link and see your announcement as well as your viewership numbers. We chose followers on Twitch because that is the most easily publicly viewable measure. Same with subscribers on Youtube. If your alternate streaming/video publishing site has a measure of your viewership we will look at that.


    Q: What if Iím a well known personality, I was in the contest last year, and you know I qualify. Do I still have to do the enrollment video?
    A: Yes, please. Part of this is building hype. We want to get the word out that A17 really is coming very soon and to get anticipation for it built to a fever pitch. Your announcement helps create it so we really want that from everyone.


    Q: If the game is good enough for streamers to show it, isnít it good enough for players to play it?
    A: The version the streamers will be playing will be the same release candidate we plan for the whole community (who wish to test experimental) to get. But we have found that releasing an experimental version on a Monday is much better for us to be able to respond quickly and effectively with hotfixes and get new builds out to you that play better. The whole team isnít always available on the weekend to address showstoppers but on that Monday weíll be ready.


    Q: Why are streamers getting special treatment? Didnít I pay for early access?
    A: All of our customers who have paid for early access are getting the early access that they paid for. At the same time we have to acknowledge that streamers provide a huge media benefit to the industry in todayís world. Being able to reach potentially hundreds of thousands of viewers over the weekend to get the word out that A17 is finally here is a powerful and amazing tool we wish to use. At the same time allowing the streamers to show early footage of an update that was a year in the making is something of great value to us and them. We love all of our fans and we hope you all will love the A17 update when you get to play it, but hope you understand we are running a business.


    Q: What about the ďStream TeamĒ?
    A: BeardedGuysGaming, PokketNinja, Kage848, and Games4Kickz are all very talented streamers and we appreciate their participation in the big A16 experiment we created with our Stream Team. They are already qualified for the A17 Weekend Bash (You guys donít have to email in your info ) and will, Iím sure make awesome content for all their fans. The Stream Team as it was originally envisioned is no more.


    Q: Does this mean no gameplay footage from Madmole?
    A: Madmole met the 5000 qualifier a long time ago so he will be recording A17 preview videos as his time permits. His number one priority, however, is getting it into your hands as soon as possible.

    Q: What if I usually stream with a partner? Can my partner get access as well?
    A: Yes. We will allow qualifying streamers to include anyone they wish to join them in their stream. We want teams to be able to stream together and even want to allow channels to hold contests if they desire to let one or more of their viewers to join in. All those who receive access only have permission to have their gameplay shown on the qualifying streamer's channel. They cannot go and stream it themselves on their own channel.


    Cheers Richard

    Ah I guess that makes sense, as to why it was reserved! As being in APAC, it was tougher to catch the US/Europe based streamers last time, timings are too far off

    Appreciate the sub, but at 2k, I'm unlikely to get another 3k for A17! But I can aim for A18

    Email has been sent.

    Q. Is this for "Streaming" only, as in a live stream, or those of us that just make a ton of videos and have a large audience, can we be accepted to?

    ugh....

    Being that I'm FAR below the threshold, I'm not going to qualify. I'm only at 73 followers.

    HYPE

    Q. So I just saw this and got super excited! I am a full time streamer on Twitch with well over 5K followers so in a hurry I sent an email. Just after I read about the link to the announcement. I must admit I do not understand this part. Am I suppose to tell my viewers I have already gotten a spot for the early access pass and then maybe not get it and disappoint them?

    If you have over 5k followers you will qualify. Itís the only criteria. So do the announcement and resend the email. Make sure to read the clarifications above.

    Great! Reaching out to other languages was one of the main reasons we wanted to do it this way. We hope your viewers have a great time that weekend.
