🔮 Greetings to a brand-new feature: Predictions!
We’re shipping a brand-new feature to Gimbl: Predictions (drum roll please! 🥁🥁🥁). This change is meant to help streamers like you further excite viewers and give back to your amazing community. Now you can share your fruits of victory (or defeat) with your viewers!
Here’s how it works:
Using Gimbl Predictions, you will allow your audience to guess specific outcomes of your game using Gold coins and win a proportionate share of Golds from the total pool for their correct guesses. Gold is Gimbl’s virtual coin granted to users for free upon the first time joining Predictions. Even if one lost it all, the sweetest part is they would get free Gold refills to be back in the fun. It costs nothing but people’s active engagement in the community they love. How awesome is that?
The more the viewers engage in Predictions, the more coins you will also earn. Accumulated Gold coins can be redeemed for “loots,” which are giftable items ranging from gaming gift cards to gaming equipment.
While similar platforms exist, we pride ourselves on a robust system that can automatically detect game events with high speed and accuracy. You don’t need to install any other extensions, just game on and we’ll take care of the rest! We are supporting multiple leading games, such as Valorant, League of Legends, Dota 2, Overwatch, Apex Legends, TFT, Fortnite, PUBG, and more to come soon.
You’ll need to install & activate Gimbl Predictions on Twitch, then have the Gimbl app running on your computer for the feature to work. Learn more about How to set up Gimbl Predictions, how Gold coins work, How Gold refills work, and more here.
🎮 Treat yourself with epic rewards in the Gimbl's lootshop
Gimbl 2.0 brings with it some goodies. Take a quick peek at our lootshop here and get ready to grind for the items you wish.
🎨 A new Gimbl's look & experience
Interface-wise, we have revamped Gimbl’s look to be more user-friendly and dynamic with better color contrast, and more icons. We also spruced up the content suggesting system to give viewers more chance to discover other wholesome streamers of Gimbl.
Moreover, we are bringing a spicy tweak to the look of the Gimbl Challenges. On the Gimbl app and Gimbl website, Challenges live as “cards” with a more intuitive user flow.
Predictions has a graph that represents the number of expected outcomes vs. the actual results. On the right-hand side of the app and the website, you’ll have the live feed that captures the latest Predictions/Challenge actions on the stream.
📈 The past is the past. Keep your game history!
Previously, your session outcomes were available on your Gimbl page for others to see. While it can unveil some insights into a streamer’s strengths and weaknesses, some streamers prefer to keep this information to themselves. That’s why with Gimbl 2.0, your game outcomes are now only visible to you on the app. Whenever you want to “show off” your victories, you can always hit the Share button on the app and let the internet know how awesome of a warrior you were!
✏ More guide and tips along the way
On the user experience front, Gimbl users now receive a lot of tips and support, no matter which platform they are on, at which stage of the process, etc. We have included more alerts, contextual tips, and linkouts to the Help Center and Gimbl’s Discord server, where you can get help directly from our team.
In many respects, this is our primary focus this year. The next couple of months will be all about bringing more animations (sounds & overlay visuals), establishing more reward schemes for users, and shipping new competition-based features. If you want to be ahead of the curve, it’s now high time to jump in. We can’t wait to see you blow up with Predictions.
Get ultra ready to reap some spicy plays and rewards! 🎁✨
See you in the next release.
The Gimbl Team.
