I'm a Twitch streamer (really small, but still one), and this is a good sign for the community.
It's really hard to find growth on Twitch, especially starting out. With the way that each game page ranks its streams, streaming a popular game means viewers have to scroll and scroll to find a small streamer. More viewers means a higher page rank, which means people are more likely to find your stream. Low views means ending up at the bottom of the page. The odds are already stacked against us, and making us pay to bring the field slightly closer to being level is just wrong.
