A Battle is a competition between two streamers to see who gets the most gifts in 2 ½ minutes. It was created for streamers to show off their talents and for viewers to show their support.
If you're joining a battle as a viewer you can show your support for your favorite streamer through gifting, and not only will this increase their chances of winning the battle, it's also a great way for smaller streamers to establish themselves in the community. Streamers can battle about anything - Are you a music nerd? Watch a Battle between streamers who are freestyling, or if you prefer some cheeky stand-up comedy, or dare we say a roast, there's a battle for you!
They are a great way to show who has the most supportive community, and you can interact with others in real-time by battling another streamer.
