I logged in, linked the account and "watched" 4 hours ... but no drops.
Is there any action to be done to claim the drops? tks
I am 68 years old and still reach Legend
I read somewhere that you could have to wait 48 hour before the drop is claimed.
Terms and conditions reads that the drops will be in within 48 hours.
But the fact that twitch has recently upgraded the ways drops work, and that even before this update we can actually get our packs immediately, shows how far they are compared to the cro-magnon that is youtube streaming.
There seems to be no way of knowing for how long we've watched the stream ... and there's no notification of winning a pack either !!
In addition, the packs can take up to 48 hours to be delivered ...
My God, how do we know then if we have already met the requirements to receive the packs? Are we supposed to have faith that YouTube has counted our watching hours correctly and pray that in a couple of days we get something by chance?
I honestly prefer Twitch to YouTube ...
For this kind of events Twitch > Youtube.
The easy way to be "sure" you gain the packs, just let it play in another window and just go on with your life.
I left my pc at home watching the stream. Technically, I've been watching for 6 hours, but I'll be sure in 2 days, when the packs arrive, that I've not been scammed by Youtube.

The problem is that it is not possible to know if YouTube has correctly counted the hours we have been watching ...
For example, I have also been watching the streaming for 6 hours ... however, I don't know if YouTube has taken note of that time or not.
Also, is it possible for YouTube to know if we are actually watching the streaming in person? We can not trust ... because maybe if we have the streaming in a background window, YouTube is not counting any watching time at all ...
Another danger is what happened to me this morning: streaming suffered a micro cut for a moment due to a problem with my connection and, without my realizing it, the streaming automatically went from playing it "live" to "recorded/delayed" (so that I would not have any interruption during the course of the game and I would not miss anything), obviously not computing any time from that moment on (since if we are not watching the streaming on live, YouTube do not register any watching time)
Yeah, no packs here yet too, I guess we need to wait till Monday to be sure. If someone gets their packs, post here, so we can confirm.
It's 48h since I started to watch and still no packs ... let's wait 48 hours from the "supposed" award ... but I have very little expectations ...
no drops for me after 48h either.
I am starting to think this thing is a scam to keep people watching the maximum amount as people dont know how much time youtube counted as "watched". youtube dont show this info on purpose, so people would watch more, and therefore more ad revenue.
Dont get me wrong, I still think the system would work somehow and we will get our packs. I just think that the system been made "flawed" intentionally.
It's still funny that somehow, even with the promise of drops, the viewer total in YT is still very little. I guess they need to learn this the hard way that Twitch is still a better platform for tournament games.
Knowledge is Power
Watched since Asia Started day 1. No packs still
Lemushki - The one and only since 2006
It's been 48 hours but I haven't seen packs yet ...

I’m sure they’ve already learned that, but they need to wait until their contract with YT expires to make a change
Quick! Someone give me something clever to write here.
Same here. I watched at least 4 hours on day 1 of APAC (also watched the other days so I should definitely have logged in more than the required amount), but no packs.
On that thought, is it 48 hours after you reached the milestone? or is it 48 hours after the event ended?
Side note: I really love the progress bar implemented by twitch. Really removes the guessing game of how much you have progressed.
three days after the watch ... no packs. It was a joke !
If nobody gets any packs it'll reflect badly on both blizzard and YouTube. Unfortunately I highly doubt anything will happen ☹️
Watched the whole weekend, logged into today and no packs
TREMBLE before.... the most legendary dragon that ever existed!
Streaming on youtube. Its anti natural

We will get packs, it's just they'll have to grant them manually as opposed to how it worked on Twitch.
That is, they'll collate the data and run a script against their database to grant the packs to us. Should be next few days.
Like everyone I miss twitch - so much better than YT.
All generalizations are false.
48 hours have passed but I still haven't received the two packs... :-)
Still nothing on my EU account despite having watched 2x8 hours (and double-checked account settings on both days). I had fun watching btw
