So with this change, Patreon numbers have bombed. Phil is now down to 164 Patrons and getting lower. He's also down from 550+ subs to sub 500. With the Patron's choice playthrough being a 600 sub goal there's really no risk in it ever being an issue, but how does 600 people coming together to secure a goal, for the 79 people who pledge $5 or more to pick what game is played?
EVEN if all 79 people picked the same game, 521 people who made the goal possible won't get a say. Unless they double dip and donate to Phil twice through different means.
And that's the best case scenario - it's most likely that of the 79 people with voting rights, a min majority of 40 (if there's two choices) or even lower number of people will choose what 600+ people watch.
It's concerning, but I doubt we'll push 600 subs any time soon. I already know what Phil's response will be so spare the abridged versions.
