Chatbots are an easy, invaluable way to let users watching a tournament stay updated with many facets of the event. Here at smash.gg, we have our own chatbot for such instances! Set up through smash.gg’s Stream Queue and visible on their event’s Twitch page, a multitude of essential commands can be issued to make life easier on the TO and enjoyable for the viewer. If you’re a TO and you’d like to set one up, we’ve got you covered.
