Giving broadcasters control; concurrent join limits for IRC and EventSub

But if I create 5 clients with 100 channels connected to each one it should work, right?

The announcement doesn’t specify how multiple connections are handled, but the limitations would be somewhat pointless if they could be circumvented by simply making more connections.

If you need to join a large number of channels, the appropriate way to scale is to have the broadcaster grant your app the required permissions or make your bot a mod, and if you’re unable/unwilling to get those permissions then you may have a use case Twitch doesn’t wish to support which is why the point of this topic is to give broadcasters more control.
