On multiple occasions, the developer of Escape From Tarkov, Battlestate Games, has praised the Twitch Drop event, which has brought insane popularity to EFT and leads to an increased number of sales. A lot of mainstream media has decided to delve into the fun and experience the cruel world of Tarkov, making guides that were somewhat doubtful to the already experienced players. Long story short, Tarkov has grown quite a bit, and the Twitch Drops event was the main reason for it.
Now, streamers such as Tfue, CourageJD, Timthetatman, and many others for which we would’ve never believed they would start playing EFT, had come on board. Well, to spare you from further worries, let us remind you that another Twitch Drops event is bound to happen.
For that reason, if you’re a big streamer (and maybe reading this), we would strictly advise you to keep on streaming Escape From Tarkov for when the event kicks in. It may be in a couple of months, or when the next account wipe happens. But, in any case, there will be another one, as it was confirmed on the official EFT forums.
The Twitch drop event was a great success and it will come back in the future with new and more in-depth systems. A total of 8 384 787 objects were given for a total value of over 1 000 000 000 in-game roubles and 338 000 participants.
Twitch was also happy to see such a success and we are looking forward to the next one.
The developers have discovered new things coming to the game, weapon modifications, even a new map is bound to arrive. We can sense that the original plan in Escape From Tarkov could be Streets of Tarkov, but we’ll have to wait until the official release to confirm it.
