Boxing Manager 2- Ring Master Extension Features
Let’s dig into the extension’s features!
The WCBM2 Twitch extension has three different types of polls that are available. They are only available during career-mode, not story mode.
Vote on Trinkets for your Boxer
Decorate your flex - Poll the channel for Trinkets that provide random buffs for your fighter
Viewers can vote in the first half of a month for a trinket that can be utilized by your boxer. This occurs near game time and the winning trinket of the vote gets dropped into your inventory in-game. Viewers will get to select from a randomized set of trinkets that can be used once by the streamer. Duplicate trinkets can occur; trinkets not part of a poll can be used five times).
Vote on Random Events
Vote for Random Events during training and management sequences to put a monkey wrench in carefully planned training regimens
For better or worse, your viewers can vote on random events the second half of the month. Chat can decide if you get a boost or will your boxing gym have some tough times? Will your boxers have a late night from partying too hard dropping their overall energy? Or will they get a great night’s rest and see decreased energy loss during a match? Now, chat can decide.
Vote on Opponent Tactics & Items
Control opponent tactics and items at the end of every round to keep those fights spicy
Usually your opponent will be controlled by AI, but this voting mode allows chat to make all the calls. Viewers get to vote on both the tactics and the items your opponent uses between rounds.
Viewers get to decide if they’re going to play neutral or take risks determining what your opponent will be throwing at you. At the same time, they’ll be selecting an item to buff your opponent for the next round. Health and stamina boosts are overall or temporary and some items (ice pack and swab) have a three round cooldown. Be sure to communicate that cool down to your chat!
Use Channel Points to Play As Opponent
Are you the smartest one in the chat? Throw down with your favorite Streamer by spending channel points to play as their opponent! This replaces the opponent's name with your Twitch name, and makes it so only you can vote for tactics and items.
The chat opponent vote lets the audience control your opponent together, but if someone in chat wants to play against you solo they can use Channel Points. When a viewer uses Channel Points, they become the sole decision maker for your opponent. Other viewers can vote to sway your chat opponent, but their vote will not be counted. Not only will this Chat Opponent be the sole decision maker, their Twitch name will also be your Opponents name.
Now that this extension is out in the wild, we’re really excited about seeing what happens in your streams! Send us any awesome clips from your stream and feel free to ask us any questions about using the extension or creating an extension with Muxy for your game.
