Relaunch & St Jude Fundraiser Details!

Today’s the day!

After a couple months’ absence due to illness, and some stream setup revitalization, I’m happy to announce that I’m officially relaunching my stream TODAY, Sunday April 29th, 2018, at 10am Pacific Daylight Time! And what better way to celebrate than to use this occasion to fundraise for a great organization, St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital through their PLAYLIVE campaign?!?

I’ll be having special fundraising streams for St. Jude throughout the entire month of May (look out for the schedule, but primarily they’ll happen on the weekends)! If for whatever reason you can’t attend one, but still want to donate, you can donate by going to this link.

I’ve got a number of incentives and milestones I’d like to share with you as rewards for donating, listed below!

Milestones (for achieving fundraising totals):

  • $250 total raised – Wez will schedule a synthesizer jam stream!
  • $500 total raised – Wez will schedule a live drumming stream! (OMG!)

Incentives for Individual Donors (choose one when donating, limited supply):

  • $5 donation – Get Wez to perform “Amazing” Accents – 5 available
  • $10 donation – Wez will name a WoW battle pet for you, FOREVER! – 10 available
  • $25 donation – Wez will immediately color an Echo of Justice battle pet print for you and send you a digital copy for your personal use. – 4 available

The incentives above are quantified for today’s stream only. More incentives will be added on future dates. The milestones, however, will be for the total campaign for the season. And if we knock that $500 total goal out of the park, we’ll add more (and ideas?)!

I look forward to seeing you all at 10am PDT for the stream today! If you’re not sure where to go, it’s at Twitch.tv/WonderWez! Eeeeeee, I’m excited!

My Grand Return is Booked!

CHARITY_ANNOUNCE_02

That’s right, I’m coming back!

After an unexpectedly long absence due to illness, I am planning to return to streaming with a new, updated streaming setup (woo!), and what’s even better – a charity streaming goal for the month of May. Help me kick off my fundraiser for St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital PLAYLIVE as I kickoff Phase 2 of the WonderWez Twitch channel THIS SUNDAY, April 29th, 2018. I’m planning to stream from 10am-4pm Pacific Daylight Time, though we may go longer depending on how much fun we’re all having.

This will be my first charity stream of several throughout the month of May. I’ll be doing these on weekend days, so hopefully if you can’t make it this Sunday, you’ll be able to hit up one of the future days (stay tuned for the future dates listing!). I’m planning to stream World of Warcraft while leveling a new character that early comers can even help me create! I’m planning some fun little incentives for donors, and when we hit certain milestones, I’m planning some epic future streams including a synth music stream for hitting $250, and a live drumming stream for hitting our $500 goal. (Seriously that drumming stream would be AWESOME!)

I’m also excited because I’ve spent some time this month investing in some new gear for the stream, including a new camera, an extended soundboard, among others. Also I’ve spent some time implementing some new features including new alerts, and customized minigames for your chatroom pleasure.

I really hope you all enjoy the upcoming streams. I love livestreaming and have really missed it, so I’m so glad to be coming back! Until Sunday, take care!

 

My 2-Year Streamaversary Event Details!

two_year_streamaversary_feb2018

OMG! I’ve been streaming TWO WHOLE YEARS, peeps, and it’s time to celebrate!!! 

Join me on Sunday, February 25th at 10am Pacific Standard Time as we party it up in celebration of me still streaming after two years. This stream is for you, Woo Crew! Without you, I would be having ZERO fun with this streaming thing. And to thank you, I figured I’d run a few giveaways during the stream featuring some of my favorite games I’ve had the opportunity to stream. Details below!

INFO:

There will be three raffles throughout the stream for the following items:

  1. Firewatch game (Steam)
  2. Tacoma game (Steam)
  3. Subnautica game (Steam)

The giveaways will take place at various times during the stream on Sunday, February 25th between 10am PST and 2pm PST.

RULES:

In order to participate in the raffle, you must:

  1. Be a follower of the channel and adhering to the channel rules (!rules for info).
  2. Spend 50 WezCred for a ticket (up to 20 tickets allowed per person, per raffle)
  3. Be legally allowed to win a raffle (18 years old+, not prohibited in your area, etc.)
  4. Have access to Steam for the game gifting.
  5. Be present in chat when the winner is announced.
  6. If you win one of the raffled items, you may not win another one during the same stream.

Failure to adhere to any of the above rules by the winner will result in a redraw.

RAFFLE DETAILS:

The raffles will take place at random times during the stream starting on Sunday, February 25th at 10am PST through 2pm PST. We will be holding Raffle #1 at approximately 11am PST, Raffle #2 at approx. 12:30pm PST, and Raffle #3 near the end of the stream around 2pm PST (times are subject to change). The raffle will be opened about ten minutes prior to the drawing for the winner, to ensure those who enter are still around for the drawing.

To enter the raffle, type in “!ticket x” in chat during the raffle window, where x is the number of tickets you want. For example, if you want to purchase 3 raffle tickets (which costs a total of 150 WezCred), you would type “!ticket 3”. You may spend up to 1000 WezCred for 20 tickets (extra chances to win!). I’m sorry for the math, but this is really the only way my bot can run raffles!

If you’re not sure how much WezCred you currently have, type “!wezcred” in chat during the stream to check your balance.

HOW TO REDEEM YOUR PRIZE:

If you are the winner of a raffle, you must friend Wez on Steam (find her Steam account at http://steamcommunity.com/id/wonderwez) and once that is complete she will send the code. Wez is not responsible for access issues with your Steam account, so make sure your account is legit before entering the raffle!

Thanks so much for making my stream time so much fun these past two years! If you haven’t already seen my stream, go ahead and follow me at http://www.twitch.tv/wonderwez!

One-Hit WonderWez Debuts Aug 26th 2017 at 1pm PDT!

OMG you guys. YOU GUYS! We hit 10 whole subs. Ten. T-E-N! That’s amazing. I can’t even. I figured it was time to have another celebration around here, and hitting 10 Twitch subscribers seems a valid excuse to have a party. I’ve been wanting to try something new on-stream for awhile now, and this here’s the perfect time I think!

I’m pleased/nervous to announce the debut of my first Creative stream series I’m calling “One-Hit WonderWez”. I could try to type out an explanation, but I figured recording  video would be easier 🙂

Hope to see you there this Saturday, August 26th at 1pm Pacific Time! http://www.twitch.tv/wonderwez

Grand Return Event on July 22nd – Details Herein!

What’s up, Woo Crew?!? I hope you all are doing spectacular. I’m feeling pretty spectacular myself (in contrast to how crummy my back has felt since early June), and in fact I’ve been doing so well I’m pleased to announce my official return to streaming on July 22nd, 2017.

Yes, on Saturday, July 22nd from 12pm to 5pm Pacific Daylight Time, I will return to Twitch to celebrate my new Affiliate Subscription availability (can we get some subscriber hype going? Who’s gonna be the first to subscribe?!?), and to introduce you all to a game called THE LONG DARK. Some of you may be already familiar with it as it’s been in pre-release on Steam and Xbox One for a while now, but the full version (with a new as-yet-unreleased Story Mode) will be launching on all platforms (including PS4) on August 1st.

thelongdark

THE LONG DARK is a survival game set in Northern Canada where you find yourself out in the elements after a mysterious geomagnetic storm with your character having to scavenge for food, shelter, and supplies whilst steering clear of wily animal predators and punishing weather patterns. The Story Mode promises to provide more details about the circumstances which led to this apocalypse of sorts.

On Saturday’s stream, I will be playing the Sandbox mode, whish is basically just the player alone in the world, trying to survive for as long as possible. And not just any Sandbox mode – I will be playing it on the hardest difficulty available in the game – Interloper Mode. For survival game fans, this is considered one of the most brutal and challenging survival experiences a game can offer, and I am TOTALLY UNPREPARED to experience it!

Fret not, there is a method to my madness and this choice is for your benefit! Why? Well we’re gonna be gamifying this terrible idea for you all – viewers of the stream will be able to enter their guesses for:

  1. How many times my character dies (and I need to start completely over) during the stream.
  2. The longest time I’m able to survive (in days, hours, and minutes)
  3. The shortest time I’m able to survive (in days, hours, and minutes)

The viewers who have the closest guesses without going over will win prizes, including a digital copy of the game (digital copy may be region-restricted; I will update with more info soon)!

Below are the rules and stuff, so you know what to expect…

Rules for Me:

  • I will play on Interloper Mode with a Random Location start.
  • No map look-ups – if I don’t know where I’m going, I don’t know where I’m going and I’ll likely die because of it!

Rules for Viewers wishing to enter the contest:

  • Must be 18 years or older and must be legally able to enter contests like this.
  • Must be a follower of the channel.
  • One entry per person. Subscribers to the channel may enter twice with different guesses if they wish. Duplicate entries from non-subscribers will be forfeit.
  • All entry guesses must be UNIQUE. You will be prompted to alter your guess on the form if someone has already entered using that precise number (this is to prevent ties, so get your guesses in early!)
  • All entries must be submitted by 3pm Pacific Time. After that entries will be closed.
  • Due to form limitations, only the first 99 entries will be counted. A link to the form will be provided once the contest starts!
  • Winners must be in chat to claim prizes. If the winner is a regular (30+ hours of prior viewing time) or a subscriber, they may be absent, but will have until 3pm Pacific Daylight Time on Sunday July 23rd to claim their prize via Twitch Whisper response.
  • If a winner is not available to claim their prize per the terms above, the prize will be awarded to the runner up until someone claims. In case of a regular or subscriber notified and non-responsive via whisper, if the runner up fails to claim their prize by Monday July 24th at 3pm Pacific Daylight Time, the prize will be forfeited and saved for a future event.
  • Entrants who fail to comply with the channel rules will forfeit their entry and risk being banned.

The Prizes!

See, this is what you’re all here for, right? Okay, so here are the prizes:

  • Number of Deaths Prize: PC Steam Code for “THE LONG DARK”!
  • Longest Survival Time Prize:  $10.00 USD Amazon.com Gift Card
  • Shortest Survival Time Prize: $10.00 USD Amazon.com Gift Card

Still with me? It looks complicated, but really it’s not. The above rules are written out just so there’s no confusion or consternation on the day of the event. We’re gonna have a blast with a new stream look, new sounds, a new game, and hopefully some new friends and the first subscribers to the channel, ever!
