how long has it been down. was a great tool and made it real easy to catch matches. wouldnt mind donating to support this to bring it back up. maybe for a 2nd watchl4d sponsored tourney.

Welp, you'd have to create a list of active streamers again.
Also if memory serves correctly, I remember estoopi stopping the watchl4d thing when Twitch upgraded the whole API as he didn't have time or couldn't be bothered with it anymore.

The new Twitch API allows for a lot of customization however, I've worked on a replacement built on an existing plugin just to test the API and it works pretty smoothly.

That being said, we could also try and get our hands on the watchl4d.com and simply let it mask the url whilst usual a tool like TwitchDeck.
Would be the easiest way.

so elusive went awol, is anyone else interested in reviving this? as i told him il fund bringing this back, what we need is the old domain and a similar user friendly twitch API that will show all the streamers on the list with priority to the people currently streaming and those who stream the matches.

dont know the status of the domain. so i need some help with this but i feel like it is the next best thing to do at this point w/ l4d3 a ways away for those of us sticking around. inb4 games dead cuz more ppl do ltd pugs now than ive seen in the past 5 years so props to vol for reviving that.
