    Just a suggestion. Would there ever be any plans for prizes on the twitch pub quiz?

    Its supposed to be a bit of fun. Having prizes would change the dynamic for the worse in my opinion for the following (not an exhaustive list) reasons.

    • Speed of internet response is key so people on UK based highspeed connections would potentially gain an edge when answering since the countdown is quick.
    • The choice of questions already came in for some criticism i.e. the Scotland themed round for non-Scot (or UK) viewers.
    • Internet failure locally would take out people who might be leading giving rise to complaints about things outside DTG's control.
    My $0.02 worth there. Feel free to disagree but I think the quiz was fun (only took part in the last one).

    My opinion is that prizes are not needed. It’s just a bit of fun and bragging rights until the next one.

    I agree prizes are not need for a internet quiz, just your knowledge alone should be your prize.

    Yeah it's just a bit of fun - things can very quickly turn nasty if there are prizes. Especially if there is a question that has "Room for Interpretation" like the How many Legs does a Crab have - does that include claws?

    Have it as a fun way to spend an hour - and at least you don't have to do a forfeit challenge if you win like an IRL pub quiz I used to go to.

    I would say personally the fun, a little laugh and a nice way to spend an hour or so is reward enough.
