Why do streamers stream live?

Isn't easy for people on the other team to just open up their stream while playing in a game against them? Gotta be even super easy for people with duo monitors.

I don't recall a delay in some of the ones I watch. Or atleast it's not a very long delay.


I'm not talking about spectating

The delay in good streams is just a few seconds, so delay isn't really a good answer.

But this isn't starcraft, there's too many variables for one player on the opposing team to orchestrate a counter to everything he sees on stream.

While that's probably true (and I'm not sure how their opponents don't at least try to capitalize on it), the fact is that if it's not live, they can't respond to their chatroom in real time.

Ex: I watched Wings stream for a few minutes the other day and he had a chatroom open with viewers asking questions, which he'd answer. Doesn't make much sense to do that if they're asking questions on a 3-minute delay.

If the streamer doesn't put something over his minimap it's easy to look over and know where everyone on the enemy team is. You don't have to counter everything, but now you know if it's safe to do Baron or Dragon or splitpush, etc.

The moral of the story is that anyone who streams should at least put something over their minimap so they don't screw their team.
