Oh yeah, a lot of people are naive about gaming as a job. It’s already not a good way to make a living for most people, but added to that is the fact that you’re now open to harassment, you have to police your chat so you won’t get banned, stream regularly because Twitch demands it and people will simply move on to Read more

Streamers generally have a sub count on their overlay somewhere, so that’s usually a good way to calculate how much they’re making. So subcount x 2.50$ (Twitch takes half of tier 1 subs) is a decent enough estimate. Apparently once you get big enough, you can renegotiate that split, but I assume only the biggest of Read more

Yeah I guess it depends on who you follow, but I rarely see the people I follow closely go past 6 hours. It probably also depends on the games people stream, so I can see WoW streamers or RP channels easily going past that. I doubt most of them are getting good compensation for it, but yeah.

Lol, yep. You have to go a long way to get to a point where your can full time stream while actually being able to live off just streaming. And most people usually don’t get there. It’s kind of a scam in the sense these companies want you to grind for little compensation, while giving them cheap content. Read more

I respect this because there’s actual talent here, unlike 90% of Twitch that’s just memes and dude-bro aggression. It kind of feels like she should have a show on AS because they’re giving off the same energy.

I think most streamers don’t stream that long. Eight hours, regardless of if you’re wearing a mocap suit, is really hard. And I pretty much never watch one streamer for that long. Read more

What was that swerve towards the end? Yes, the government is shady, but what in the heck does that have to do with this conspiracy?

You know, a quick google search could have informed you that a majority of people in Texas are not Republican? Even then, those people are suffering, and that’s not cool, regardless of your beliefs. You sound like an angry Republican, honestly.

This isn’t what you’re saying it is. They removed a symbol of an awful regime, from a videogame. They’re not wiping the internet of every trace of it. It’s consumerism.

Uh, you should go read up on Imperial Japan (or at least their WW2 atrocities) before making assumptions, because it’s not just China at all. It’s crazy how so many people in these comments are giving this a pass, yet would absolutely not defend the removal if it was a Nazi flag. Read more

This is such a good trolling. I don’t even need to read the comments to know this probably landed hard.

He definitely should have changed it the minute it started getting articles. Instead of doing so, he is now banned during a time when press like this is invaluable to a one-man developer. Read more
