The new streaming platform Kick is slowly catching on its arch-rival Twitch with yet another not-very-unique feature. Of course, we mean the recent tease from Kick on Twitter about KickCon 2023. In the tweet, we can only notice that the event will take place in Las Vegas, but the date is still to be determined. We assume it will be in autumn or winter.
In case you didn’t know, TwitchCon 2023 is also taking place in the same city between the 20th and 22nd of October. It seems like the rivalry between the two streaming platforms is getting even bigger this year. Below, we will give our take on what to expect at the KickCon 2023 convention.
What Do We Know About KickCon 2023 So Far?
So far, we only know for certain that KickCon 2023 will feature in Las Vegas, just like TwitchCon 2023. Now, some fans wrote on Kick’s Twitter post that they think it will happen in the same week as their competitors.
To make things even more interesting, Kick’s response was a smirking face emoji. This made all of us wonder whether it is true or not. If it is, then that would cause a lot of drama in the streaming world.
Apart from the date and time, we can also speculate about the majority of things connected to this event. We still don’t know whether the convention will give out awards to content creators.
But, judging by Kick’s desire to become better than Twitch, we can surely expect KickCon to try and provide an unforgettable convention. Usually, at streaming conventions, the fans get to meet the content creators and discover new products.
Additionally, the streamers get to find better ways of improving their brand by learning useful tips and techniques. Judging by recent events, we speculate that this is where Kick will put its main focus on. Fans can look forward to seeing international streaming stars like WestCol, Evelone192, Buddha, and many more in real life.
They will definitely promote the platform’s strengths and opportunities that don’t feature on Twitch. Among them are a much better revenue split and more relaxed rules. Once the content creators learn about this thing up close, it will be hard for them to hesitate.
Many Kick fans took the KickCon 2023 announcement very positively. Some of them even tweeted that they couldn’t wait for it to happen. Even content creators took the news with a lot of joy and many were highly supportive of the convention.
The Rivalry Is Getting Stronger
Ever since joining the streaming business, Kick showed a desire of overtaking the top spot from Twitch. The new platform first acquired Trainwrecks and Adin Ross and is constantly after Twitch’s biggest stars. One of the top names that Kick’s representatives are training to acquire is Kai Cenat.
Kick is offering more competitive subscription revenue shares, which are set at 95/5. The same revenue shares on Twitch go at 50/50. At the new streaming platform, the content creators are free to broadcast gambling activities.
On the other hand, Twitch bans all gambling-related streams. Recently, Trainwreck accused Twitch of being hypocritical for organizing a convention in the gambling-centred location.
With KickCon 2023, we believe that the new streaming platform will try to get another step closer to Twitch and cause them another blow. For now, all we can do is wait and see how things unroll in the coming ways.
