What's the difference between the variant and the regular? What am I going get if I bought one 3 hours ago?

Agreed.... cried and got what they wanted. And even some who missed the 2nd window still complained. Useless.

Meh, I love streams like this but I've got kids. I couldn't possibly have remained glued to my computer the entire time to catch the first doobie drop. So I'm grateful for the second opportunity.

For the record I wasn't one of the "cry babies". Before the second drop was announced I accepted I simply missed something exclusive. I wasn't even logged in to be able to comment.

Was driving the first time and the feed cut out, was an idiot the 2nd. Wasn't complaining, just bummed I missed it. Happy for those who scored

I thought the version was an exclusive to those there for those 5 minutes... probably <50. NOW.... it's probably 150.

Let's put down the J for a second. Was really cool to see the thing unfold, especially the beginning. Whole thing moved SO quickly. Unreal how seemingly seamless it was. Have a whole new appreciation for Mik's art. Then he did the branch and I'm like "too many leaves.." but nope. It was fantastic in the end. Loved all the rendering too. Thanks for the education Mike

I don't have a account on Twitch either so I wasn't able to comment. I made one comment on fb, third shift sucks. Left it at that.

This didn't discourage me from wanting to see what was left of the process since by the time I woke up it was still going on. I especially enjoyed seeing him update doobie bird. The second two minute drop was a nice surprise and I'm thankful for it.

Like it was said some of us don't have that kind of schedule. I know West Coasters were either still at work, driving home (rush hour), and who knows what else. Thanks again Mike. I enjoyed the hour and change I caught.

Yes, because everyone has hours in the evenings. You DD should know more than others with renovations and upcoming wedding among other things in your life. And you don't even have kids yet :lol: We ain't no #truefans enough, I guess. Luls.

"that kind of a schedule" doesn't come into play when someone says "hey here's something special that's up for five minutes only". Either you're there or you're not. It's luck, not a right to be accommodated.

But hooray for Mike for the payday. Can't knock a guy for getting paid and he's the one that makes the rules. I'm sure he'd refund if I was upset enough to ask for one :notworthy:
