I'm not a huge fan of the art style, I felt they could've done more with the aesthetic they're going for. "Cheap XIII" is actually pretty accurate. Low-poly cel-shaded graphics can be great when the proper amount of time and effort are put into them, but I feel like a lot of games have recently been leaning on the low-poly look as a budget constraint and not a thoughtful artistic choice.
A personal aside: it's going to take awhile for me to get used to EGS as an acronym for the Epic Games Store rather than my alma mater's Electronic Gaming Society club.
I forgot to mention that I have zero issues with playback in the same browser setup for archived / not live videos. I can also watch videos via apps like AppleTV just fine. Just live videos the past week or so have been giving me issues
For about the past week both East and West livestreams have been very hitchy for me, constantly switching between qualities when set to "Auto". I've been using the "Auto" setting for quite awhile since it usually provides the best quality (even more than "High") but something must've changed recently to make the setting very aggressive. I haven't tested other browsers, but this is happening to me on Firefox 65.0.2 (latest). This is on my gaming desktop on my gigabit fiber optic connection, so I don't believe PC or connection issues are the culprit.
EDIT: This is also happening on other qualities as well. I set the latest stream (Breaking Brad) to "High" and the stuttering / start & stop is happening there too.
