Why do streamers stream live?

Basically all LoL/Dota2 streams put some sort of delay. A bunch of SC2 streamers probably do too by now, even though they weren't back when I played it (getting tiresome of them constantly complaining about stream sniping).

Most high level streamers where the stream is popular enough to get recognized have a stream delay of 15-30 seconds, which is too much to save you from dying and watching that and trying to guess where they're at now or what they're doing now would take too much focus and probably just make you play worse in general. Plus, if you're at a high enough level that you get matched up with those streamers who are well recognized because they're on top teams in the region, then you can probably just outlane them and have it be a lot less complex

In the case of somebody like Oddone who is in tons and tons of tournaments, solo queue is a rather minor deal. If somebody cheats off their stream, it really ain't much of an ordeal. Oh nos, lose a few elos.

So it DOES happen!

Was watching wingsofdeath stream last night and he kept commenting that the other team was "ghosting" because they knew exactly where he was all the time.

Looked up ghosting and that was the 1st link.

Because, mostly, they don't care.

EDIT: Also, it decreases the entertainment factor for fans, in my opinion.

they allow ghosting because if they lose, they can blame someone's ghosting

but if they put up a 3min delay and lost, that'll be embarrassment on their ass for failing

as you know, streamers gets +5 in LoLawesomeness out of nowhere
