I know they're streamers, but giving people such as streamers extra gear every wipe or every time they start seems a little unfair to all the other players. Especially when they usually have more time and money available to play the game, meaning that even without such items they'd be far ahead of a lot of people. I think it's an unfair system, even if it is advertisement.

Technically, anyone can be considered a streamer, even if you do 1 stream every few months. There fore, anyone who streams the game should get gear, so 90% of the player base

It is true, just look at the big streamers such as Shroud...dude is literally in the 100 million roubles. Giving Streamers preferential treatment allows them to play the game like they play call of duty, because there is no fear for them to die. They will just re-gear up and do the same poo all over again. Stop giving these streamers extra dough, let them learn and show how this game really plays for the average player.

What you are all talking about are "press kits". Those have been removed for quite some time now. Streamers only start with stuff they are given by their respective game edition (standard, EoD, etc.).

This dude also literally plays games for a living. Investing 8+ hours each day. They do not need anything extra.

Streamers do not get any special extras, they play with whatever version gear they have. If they make a living from streaming then they will be playing more, which means they will have more. BSG is not sending them anything special, they are just playing a lot more than you or I.

SwaggerSouls and Fitz just started playing the game, and a M700/SVDS just showed up in their inventory, along with multiple keys. Don't think that's part of the EOD.

Is the streamer edition still in the game? The one where you basically get a level 50's stash to try out the game and showcase without having to worry about economics or looting? 
If so I believe that needs to be taken away permanently due to it easily missleading most of the viewers!

Nvm, press kits are not in the game anymore!

honestly i'm not sure what the big deal is if they got some keys and a gun?  i get that you don't want people to get special treatment but you gotta think streamers ARE tarkov's ad service.  they are how a lot of you people (i assume) found the game, i dont do twitch but i know ALOT of people do and its the reason why we had this huge influx of players

Now, is it right they get special treatment? no.  but does it really effect me in any way that 10-20 more people MIGHT have some extra loot? no, not at all. 

This post almost seems like people just want to be angry about something

i mean using bots on the market is a separate issue from obtaining free gear and will be addressed eventually ish 


not to mention anyone who plays long enough gets to print money eventually with the bitcoin farm even at  3-4 coins a day thats half a mil for doing nothing.  Especially once you get the solar panels meaning every metal tank is 49 hours of fuel

Hahahahahah, oh wow. This is demonstrably untrue.

Not that I care a fart. BSG is using them (and paying them) for marketing purposes. If you watch a stream and see all the goodies they have, you want them too. Makes sense.

Certain streamers used to get "press kits" , those have been discontinued for a while. Currently, streamers play with the same stuff and editons that everyone else does.

Can you name a streamer of decent following that I can watch to verify this?

I can name a bunch of streamers, but there's no reason to. Press kits were discontinued over a year ago.

If you're unwilling to support your rebuttal, you have no rebuttal. Ok by me.

I told you twice that there are no more press kits. You are the one that failed to believe me. If I was unsure then I simply wouldn't have replied at all.

100 mil is not that hard, lvl39 sitting on 105mil stash with 30mil cash, Shroud is like lvl 50+ if he does not have 100mil something is wrong

You don't know what a press kit is. Sending a few items is not a press kit. A press kit had a ton of items and it was in your stash already and replenished after every wipe. What they might get is what would equal a new year and christmas gift. That is not a press kit.
