A few games, like Hearthstone, don't have set guidelines about stream-sniping, so it is debatable whether stream-sniping can even be considered cheating in the first place (though I'd definitely call this poor sportsmanship, like stealing signs within baseball).

Since much of DayZ's success is a result of streamers and content material creators broadcasting the overall game live (rather compared to through traditional marketing) Hicks says he has "run into obvious pressure to try and avoid it, and assistance said content creators in combating this. "You can't truly quantify how 'big' of an issue it really is, " Hearthstone streamer Reynad told me through Twitter. "That depends on the streamer and their goals in-game and as an entertainer
