How to use Better Twitch TV (BTTV) emotes

Published

on

On Twitch, you may have seen people type things in chat that seem like they should be emotes, but they aren’t appearing that way for you. Instead they just look like random words that have capitalized letters in an awkward fashion.

That’s probably because you don’t have the extension called Better Twitch TV (BTTV). 

The extension, which is available for all major browsers, is easily downloadable and allows you to interact with other users on Twitch in ways that you can’t with the standard website.

The first step to getting access to BTTV emotes is by simply downloading the extension at betterttv.com. The website will allow you to select which browser you’d like to download your extension for. Once you’ve picked your browser of choice, just click the button to download and follow the basic setup steps.

After you have BTTV on your computer, you can access the extension on Twitch by going to the Chat Settings button. This will appear at the bottom of the chat box in any stream you go to and has a cogwheel as an icon.

The bottom option in Chat Settings is to open up your BTTV settings. BTTV has many settings options including the ability to speak in chats anonymously, automatically claim channel points, and enable Twitch’s dark theme. 

Perhaps the most important setting to make sure you have on is the BTTV emotes.

If you’re in your settings, it’s smart make sure you have the emote menu, emotes, and GIF emotes all turned on.

By turning on the BTTV emote menu, you will see a smiling face emote next to your chat button while watching someone’s channel. This smiling face emote button will open a menu showing you all of the BTTV emotes that a streamer has enabled for their channel.

Adding Emotes to your Channel

BTTV emotes can only be seen by those that have BTTV, and they can only be used if a streamer has the specific emote activated for their channel. 

To get certain BTTV emotes loaded up for your channel, you can go to the Emotes tab of betterttv.com and login to your Twitch.

Once you’re logged in, you’ll be able to sift through all the emotes that have been uploaded to BTTV, click on the ones you like and hit the Add to Channel button. This will give people with BTTV the ability to spam those emotes in your chat.

Victory Five fines jungler pzx for not taking Smite in their match against Suning

Published

on

LPL continues its tradition of having players who forget to take Smite. After eStar Esports fined jungler Wei last split, Victory Five joined in today with another fine for their jungler Peng “pzx” Zhan-Xiang for failing to take Smite in V5’s series against Suning yesterday.

According to an unofficial translation of an article posted on Weibo by the organization, the player was fined one month’s salary for his mistake and received a warning for his behavior. This situation happened in the LPL repeatedly in recent times, and it’s unclear whether there will be changes to the ruleset to allow for a remake should such a situation arise again.

This win would have been important for the V5 squad, who are currently sitting in the last place without a series win with a score of zero wins and 13 losses. They were close to taking down Suning during the series, but the mistake from the first game was a free loss in the series. With the draft they had, they would have been able to stand a chance against the 2020 world finalists and potentially end their dreadful losing streak.

With three matches left against EDward Gaming, FunPlus Phoenix, and LGD Gaming, it’s unlikely that V5 will be able to pick up a series win and end the regular 2021 LPL Summer Split with a win.

Evil Geniuses partners with UK soccer club Wolves

Published

on

North American esports organization Evil Geniuses has revealed a partnership with Premier League soccer club Wolverhampton Wanderers FC, it was announced today.

The partnership will see the Fosun Sports Group, which acquired the Wolves in 2016, make a minority investment in EG, valuing the team at $255 million post-investment. With this deal, Evil Geniuses will be the first esports team with a physical presence in North America, Europe, and Asia-Pacific.

The partnership and investment will enable EG to continue expanding its business into global markets. The deal will also see Wolves branding featured on EG’s uniforms, as well as collaboration to create English and Chinese content, sponsorship opportunities, and jointly branded merchandising.

“We are thrilled to partner with Wolves, a storied football club and strong sports and entertainment brand that aligns with our values and mission,” EG’s CEO Nicole LaPointe Jameson said. “This deal will help power Evil Geniuses’ expansion into the Asian markets while also providing new capital to sign more world-class players and grow into new esports titles.”

This is not the first step for Wolves in esports as the soccer club owns teams in FIFA, Call of Duty Mobile, and Rocket League, which will not be dissolved, according to Wolves Esports’ manager Michael Moriarty.

“Wolves Esports isn’t going anywhere–we’ll still be keeping our presence in China as well as the titles we have based here in Wolverhampton,” he said. “This partnership between the club and EG will benefit all sides, as we grow and develop esports excellence together.”

G2 Mikyx: ‘I feel like LCK bot lanes are worse than the LEC and LPL ones’

Published

on

G2 Esports’ Mikyx is not impressed with the quality of bot lanes on show in the LCK.

Mikyx did not shy away in an interview with InvenGlobal. When asked about his opinion related to the LPL bottom laners and the bottom laners of DWG KIA after their recent MSI performance, Mikyx had a pretty straightforward opinion.

“Yeah, I feel LCK bot lanes are worse than the LEC and LPL ones. I wasn’t very impressed by anyone there. I think some of the LPL bot lanes are pretty good. I think in Europe you also have some really good bot lanes,” he said. “So I feel like they’re a bit behind.”

G2’s support believes that DWG KIA and T1 are the only two teams with strong bottom laners in the LCK, with Gen.G, who’ve been losing matches in the past couple of weeks, a distant third. He believes that the LEC has a lot of strong bottom laners, while the mid lane is lacking in that department.

Going into the last matches of the LEC, Mikyx believes that G2 has better individual players and better adaptability compared to other teams in the best-of-five series.

LEC returns this Friday with the last week of the Summer Split regular seasons, where five teams are looking to improve their placement going into playoffs, four teams are battling for the last playoff spot, and one is trying to make their last memory of the organization within the LEC, for now, memorable after they’ve been eliminated from playoff contention.
