Gamida Posted January 5 Share Posted January 5 This may be a little long, maybe TL:DR for some but it has me curious. I was wondering about how the new Youtube policy is going to affect 7 Days To Die. First thing I will mention in how I feel YT and 7 Days are connected is it is basically how I found out about the game. Before I had any games or even had steam on my computer I was watching YT vids. I wasn't even watching it that long. I was watching some videos on Dayz and was thinking it looked ok and was even thinking of getting Arma and the Dayz mod (am pretty sure it was early, before it was standalone) As I watched more Dayz vids I noticed one of this game called 7 Days To Die. I watched it and had to see more. Watched some more and that was it, I was hooked. I completely forgot about Dayz (still don't have it to this day). I then downloaded steam, downloaded 7 Days and never looked back. It was actually the only game I had and played for almost a year and a half or more if I recall. That was how I came to find out about 7 Days and am wondering if that may be how a lot of others came to find out about it too. Anyway this leads to my question of if YT's new policy will affect 7 Days. From what I understand from watching youtubers describe it. If there is any swearing withing the first 8 to 15 seconds of a video it will be demonetized. Ok well that is easy to fix. Just don't swear at that time or even at all in your vid. But according to what I had recently seen in a video by MoistCritical. You can get demonetized just by having anything violent in your video. Not only real stuff but game stuff...even just a pic from what he explained. A part of it was basically bodily fluids or dismemberment, both of which we know are in the game. If that has possibility of getting anyone playing 7 Days to have their video demonetized will that mean that players will stop putting them up on youtube. I know some will say well it won't affect stuff like the streamers weekend as that is on Twitch. The thing is like I said at beginning I saw the game on YT and I feel (just my opinion) that a lot of others may have also. I know you can watch VOD's on Twitch but do people. I, again just from my experience, have never watched any more than maybe 3 or 4 twitch VOD's myself since I have been on it. 99.999% of my online video watching is on YT. Before the hate starts, this is not a gloom and doom post about how 7 Days is going to die, I am just curious how other think it will affect how the game is spread.
