>Blevins was one of a few select professionals with huge followings pulled in by videogame giant Electronic Arts Inc to play and promote its latest title, “Apex Legends,” in the first hours of the launch last month, generating a buzz that notched 10 million signups in the first three days.

>The 27-year-old, famous for his hair color changes - currently a bright, turquoise hue - tweeted about the free-to-play game early on Feb. 5 and streamed the action to his more than 13 million followers on game-streaming site Twitch. For this he was paid around $1 million, a source told Reuters.

>Representatives for EA and Ninja declined to comment on how much he had been paid, but the amount named by the source is more than twice media reports of Ninja’s monthly earnings from streaming his regular appearances on Fortnite and way above what was speculated on a number of internet discussion boards.

>EA also paid popular Polish-Canadian streamer “Shroud,” who has nearly six million Twitch followers, to play Apex Legends but declined to disclose the terms of the deal.

Keep in mind that the article only lists a source as to who told them this, so it could be complete bullshit, but it'd be funny regardless.

I'm not too surprised honestly. If anything, one of the problems with Apex Legends, Fortnite, and other fad multiplayer games is that they only are fun so long as their favorite streamer is still playing it. Once the streamer abandons it for something else, the game will start jumping ship. As much as I hate League, there is a reason its still going on despite how fucking static, boring, and awful balancing the game is

No one's going to snap. This isn't going to stop. A growing number of people will simply be paid to advertise their entire lives to the world, and they'll use their income to buy the products they've been brainwashed into buying by other people paid to advertise their entire lives to the world. This won't end even when child rapists are live streaming their acts, because it will have been made legal.

Now that's just a retarded stretch of thought.

The main motivation for people without other motivations is survival, idiot. Even the dumbest of the dumbest only enact things like genocide, killing others en masse and so on because they think it will impact their own survival if they don't.

In history, after every great massacre, the nation that enacts it falls. Not just due to outside interferance, but from the inside.

I don't know if you're really some weird exec who frequents these boards, but in your position it's clearly easy to enter a bubble of disinformation about how people work. Survival comes first, so if you fuck someone out of cash it's only a matter of time before they stop buying from you.

If you think streaming is some cemented thing, some great new form of entertainment, ask yourself, do they kill people on live television? You know, the shows that aren't broadcasting the news?

Do you honestly think that if someone does that shit and regularly, that they WON'T be caught and destroyed? You get a goddamned clue, the fringe society, you in particular, you don't speak for the world.

And if you're that weirdo fuckhead I met in college that said this exact same shit, No, slavery is not the future. You're just fucking retarded.

Second, streamers aren't even really a big deal, and if they pay these people fucking millions, then all we're going to see is a rise in shitty behavior, which will fuck with their employer. So no matter what happens, it should either ramp up or die down, either way we win.

That's really what gets me, no one really knows what his deal with other then people happened to gravitate toward his streams by way of Fortnite.



Streaming is about winning the lottery, the majority of streamers are underpaid while few big shots get disproportionate amounts of cash and once they're established they have a monopoly for years.

Think about it this way: Movie degrees are fucking worthless in Hollywood because it's gatekeeped. The more people in on the cash, the less cash for the hundred total actors on the scene, so some start with porn and some never make it past advertising.

Seriously, take this flaming faggot in the OP picture for example, he literally has NOT A SINGLE redeeming feature or even personality, he just happened to be playing Fortnite and streamed it. Pewdiepie, another example was a random fucker in the let's play community, nothing special at all about him, he was just there when bucks rolled in.

You're not going to get more in 1 month then if you're working at a regular job for a month. You're more often then not going to get much less.

Being rich either means working hard at getting rich, or hardly working at all and getting lucky. Don't think some fad will make you rich.

Just get better jobs, work towards better positions, and learn your fucking skills, get a reputation for being dependable. You have to stumble into getting rich most times, but if you can't, you can still carve out a life where every need is provided and most wants are had.

Or you could sit there and complain. It's true there are jobs that suck balls and have shit pay, so aim for better jobs as best you can.

>That's really what gets me, no one really knows what his deal with other then people happened to gravitate toward his streams by way of Fortnite.

Consistency. I read that he streams almost every day on a consistent schedule for over 12 hours. If a fortnite kiddie is bored then chances are this fag is streaming, they know what to expect and it's mildly interesting I guess if you like watching battle royale games. He seems to have a shit personality (only seen a few clips of him raging or embarrassing himself) but he's also apparently one of the top players at his game. Of course a top player streaming the most popular meme game of the moment would have a good chance of taking off.

It's the same reason why fast food is so popular. You could research local restaurants and you might find something healthier/tastier/not much more expensive, or it could be a ripoff or shit or give you food poisoning… you could even learn to cook or make something yourself… or you could just go to a McDonalds are grab a burger that you know is going to be basically identical to any burger served at any McDonalds in the country. Some people are dumb lazy fucks who eat nothing but fast food, but everyone at least occasionally just wants to eat something and doesn't really care what it is. Likewise, some people are retarded whales who watch streamers for hours every day and give them money so they can feel like they have a friend, other people just get bored and click the neon hair man because everyone else talks about him and it's less effort than sifting through billions of youtubers or streamers trying to find something entertaining, or god forbid playing the fucking game instead of watching someone else do it.

>Pewdiepie, another example was a random fucker in the let's play community, nothing special at all about him, he was just there when bucks rolled in.

Again, same thing. He uploads a video almost every single day. You could upload ANYTHING mildly entertaining every single day and people will pick up on it. When you think about dumbass boomers flipping through TV channels when they know nothing worth watching is on (or dumbass millennials spending 15 minutes searching through the Netflix catalogue knowing damn well that it's all garbage) then it seems obvious that people will find value in something that is always there and always requires zero effort to enjoy, even if it is mediocre at best.

On one hand - your logic is sound.

On the other hand the marketing budgets have been getting bloated in all fields and less is being put into research and development even in fields such as pharma.

The budget for marketing of that game is certiainly in the millions, not that those millions are directly reaching streamers. But it does go to marketers who do give streamers something for sure.

If you are a big streamer getting 20k for playing a repetitive game for months is not a stretch of the imagination when you get big crowds with you who give you extra donations. Who would pass by such an offer ?

A note and AN EARLY RELEASE COPY OF THE FUCKING GAME that they can then stream exclusively on their gay twitch™ channel for the mouthbreathers that watch them and net them those 500k through donations and adverts.

So once more for the more mentally handicaped goyim amongst (((us))) :



Most of the bloated budgets are bloated in order to justify the next year's budget ,if a department has leftover money from the previous year that they didn't use that goes into account when the board decides what the next year's budget will be for that department and you can bet your ass it's gonna round downwards and not upwards.

There is a larger chance that any of that money goes into bonuses,expensive dinners,$30k esspresso machines and sports cars through creative accounting than reaching any of those retards,as i said pocket-lint that's all they get.

I mean come on, would you share any of that money with some fag that plays videogames on twitch that may or may not be relevant in 6 months because they are that easily replacable,when it would make more sense to just burn them in the building furnace and provide some heat for the emplyees even if it is for only 10'?

I recently picked up a book about marketing written in the 90s and it talks about how every part of a company must subordinate itself to the marketing department and how, in reality, marketing IS the company.

It repulses me to no end, but when you read it from the business perspective it makes a bit of sense as to why they are pumping such insane sums of money into it.

Long story short, it's done as a preventive measure.

It doesn't need to give the company any benefits, but the assumption is that it will prevent disasters or stop the company from spiralling into obscurity.

A good deal of these fags have giveaways and shit which are usually finaced by the companies, it's a symbiotic relationship.

Equally there are plenty of streamers that stop playing games once the promo money stops coming in since there are other games they can play with equal or bigger audiences.

Why would somebody known for a game with a bigger audience play a game with a smaller audience (and hence less viewers and less money) for free?

Large streamers have been outed running lotto scams, cheating in competitions, openly lying to viewers and still have large and loyal fanbases. PR means fucking nothing compared to the effective "brand loyalty" to streamers which only reinforces itself the more money they give them.

They'll get that continuous cash regardless.

>a one time payment from one company

Conveniently ignoring the part about companies bankrolling giveaway and other such shit and ignoring the fact that if they out them they lose potential future offers. Streamers are whores they ain't gonna lose those paychecks.

The amount that would paypig outta seeing moral behaviour is negligible to the literal millions of normalfags that are throwing money at "shouty man with bright hair". The only way companies like EA even get sales is through shit like this, reviewers or streamers they don't pay off will rightfully shit on it, hence the need for hype marketing.

I try to make them go outside with me to play some basketball or maybe go to a restaurant or an arcade, but that's a rarity, especially these days. Ever since we left Highschool it has been like this. I've been gradually disconnecting from them the past few years. They're content with wasting away their nights (they only play from 9pm-3am) on League of Legends, Apex, or whatever the latest meme game is. They're reaching their late thirties and this is how they act. It's embarrassing.

Loneliness and isolation is a symptom of a lack of overall purpose in our societies coupled with growing populations, with this setting you have no foundation to judge yourself and others by and you get people splintering into their own pet interests and pleasures, or they get rallied to a million different causes. Relationships are what happens when people have a shared directions and goals, they will not exist in a vacuum. People really aren't meant to focus on themselves this much, it's too bad the modern era is one of explosive technological growth along with the complete decimation of our understanding of what we need to function.

That implies that streaming is indeed something one can reliably hang their hat on,and with the exception of a precious few that did that early on and have now enough fuck you money to do so at this point,i would argue for the opposite.

Usually that happens when they can buy in bulk and in corroberation with some large site.Why?Because why buy a single shill when you can have an entire site coming with an editor,staff and upaid interns to do it?You simply get more shillpower for you buck and there is significantly less leakage if things go tits up due to the same corporate structure and mandates holding true for both side alongside 'honor amongst thieves shills';with a streamer you don't get that,you may very well end up with a fucking sperg that at the first sign of trouble loses it's shit and goes into turbo-retard mode which is exactly why you don't pay them to begin with

>You can call streamers retarded if you want

I heard of this thing a few years ago that streamers never talk about how much they make because they want to fool the audience- as well as knowing that deep down, they're pathetic, glorified NEETs. Most of the time they aren't self-aware to notice this fact, but if even a fragment of the topic is brought up or if it makes them remember this like some sort of PTSD shit, they'll push it away so hard in anyway they can (and its easy because they can just ban people with 1 click; or have mods that'll do it for them).

It's weird that normalfags will make fun of neckbeards or "anyone too nerdy", but they'll literally throw their dollars away to these fags just so they can say their names.

What a fascinating point. It's like someone looked at why the Gamergate thing blew out of everyone's control hundreds of faggots doing the same general thing and decided to decentralize the advertising part of their game give it to a shitton of streamers and let them advertise it for you.

Instead of slapping full-page ads in the gaming magazines, they spent that money on these faggots. If it becomes industry standard to just throw money at streamers, it actually is going to be extremely difficult to remove that power from them. It might even be enough to prevent the industry collapse that people have been predicting for the past decade or so.

I honestly assumed it was going to be easier due to the fact that these streamers are well known, unlike game journos who relatively stay in the shadows until they are found out for the conniving jew they are. I imagine it would work like a sneaker deal for an athlete.

I think it'll be harder to remove them simply because they'll be continuing to build the cult of personality around themselves, and the normalfags will continue to worship them because they don't know or care about having standards. Further, instead of having to interview or vet any of their picks, the publishers could simply pick a new favorite out to replace a popular streamer. It's a hydra situation, really, where each streamer that gets removed only spawns another.

The fact that the journalists hid in the shadows was a weakness for them, because they had no support network for when the light was shone upon them, whereas the streamer has a millions-strong band of sycophants.

Apparently he said it jokingly but still journos are trying to tear streamers apart. A good thing in my books. Let journos expend their energy on them.

This could be a good thing if used correctly and ethically.

You do have a point but if you remember they fought tooth and nail, going so far as trying to convince the public that Gamergate was a terrorist group through actual news outlets instead of what it actually was; a consumer base that was and still is seeing a decrease in quality of their favorite product due to the influence a few faggots.

You also have to remember that these guys hid in the shadows but not 100%, they were always visible it's just that not many cared to find out who they were before the fiasco. There's a reason why the initial Gamergate push stressed to try not to associate too much or at all with the budding e-celebs (that got their initial fame from GG) and other celebrities. It's harder to criticize a movement if the people supporting it are anonymous individuals. You can't pick apart someone you don't know anything about.

What did you expect? That's why I never got close to kids in high school, they don't truly care about you or even have a reason to care about you. They only hung out with you since it was fun, not because of some concrete value or need. Friends used to be people you could trust your life in and someone that could truly suffer for you, just as you could for them. Now, there is no need for that, values have been corrupted just as the need for others has diminished. No one needs to befriend someone else just as no one needs to care if they just stop talking to you 2 years down the line for no clear reason. The only friends you could possibly count on are those that share the same values as you, (a rarity) or those that can provide something for you just as you can provide something for them. As long as there is something you can do for a friend they can't do themselves, just as they can do something for you you can't, that friendship has 10 times more stability than that of your best friend from high school. Necessity is extremely valuable in keeping relationships, but it has to go both ways and can't devolve into being indebted to someone, or just paying for their services.

But that only matters if you can actually find someone to be your friend, I found a guy by chance in high school, but you will have to go out there and look for someone by yourself. Real social skills are some of the most underrated and underused nowadays but they aren't all that hard as long as you get good at it. Go out to the mall, the park, anywhere that you can talk to somebody and try a conversation. Even if you spill your spaghetti 24/7 and don't know what you are doing wrong, you'll eventually get used to it just by habbit of doing it. And as long as you keep at it you might even find someone with the same interests you can talk to after a long days work. Its really tough to get friends nowadays but still possible, might as well try it out before you reach 40.

I don't think that people have changed, it's just that the media always portrays friends as perfect and as people that are always there for you, where as in reality, 99% of the people only care for themselves. I blame society for giving people false expectations of friendship.

It's like with how people want to be fit but doesn't even try working out or eat more healthily, or people who want to be richer but doesn't want to put in the effort or work the extra hours. Fear. Fear of failure, rejection, pain keeps people away and the brain basically can't tell the difference between reality and what you vividly imagine so a lot of people settle for emulating good feelings from movies/TV instead of going for it themselves.

LOL, I didn't mean that people have changed over the years, rather I'd say 100% of people are selfish and those who are "altruistic" are only so due to their own momentary feelings, potential benefit, strict education and very rarely due to their own values which still couldn't be described as objective altruism. Rather its the world that has changed drastically, not going to go on for a whole paragraph so here it is simple: Long time ago people stopped being tribalistic and formed their own civilization, but needed core beliefs as rules to maintain order and stop everything from going to shit. Most of the values we have are from back then and we still use them today, from greek to catholic values. And yet in the last 100 years or so there has been a huge degradation of values, everything from religion to the constitution has been broken down to a state unrecognizable from even 40 years ago, yet its degradation had been worse even earlier. People used to have duels over insults to someone's religion that wouldn't even be grounds to use as a family guy joke since its so obscure. Caring about core values and beliefs has been so despised and condemned in almost every medium of media and expression in the last 40 years its almost unbelievable once you start looking for it. Apathy has become the reigning value in its place, yet apathy is just emptiness, not a real replacement, and all the values pushed by cultural Marxists are at their core damaging to all forms of human relationships and behavior. Worse still, no one needs to help each other to survive, get a better quality of life or even for some subjective value anymore. You will always be able to buy something, so why become friends with someone when you can just buy a friend? Buy a worker to come fix your roof, a kid to trim your yard, a phych to listen to your problem, a streamer to laugh with, an app to show off and a website to express yourself to a hundred thousand people who will never truly listen. The state and consumerism has fucked human relations up so much (((they))) didn't even have to do much, boomers fucked us so bad due to daddy issues and pure stupidity and laziness that we might even be terminal.

Going a little long here, il have to try better next time I do posts like this, maybe with notepad and different posts like those guys on old /pol/. But what I meant to say is the world around us has changed dramatically from what it was before, and just like Winston Smith we have never know something better but know that things as they are now are wrong. Relationships no longer matter, or have any real reason to matter, and the best way to find a real friend is to find that reason to keep being friends.

The characters are gimmicky, their silhouettes not unique at a glance whatsoever, their designs are straight up repulsive and ugly, the game is Battle Royale (I'll let that speak for itself), it has tons of interesting mechanics from Titanfall 1 and 2 taken out for the sake of retaining casual players, and the map designs are un-intuitive and also as ugly as the characters. Refer to pic related for good character designs. Overwatch kinda had the silhouette thing going for it but they decided to make skins which change things up so drastically that one character may be confused for another entirely.

If you did it in a smart way, it wouldn't be that bad. If you somehow got lucky and struck it rich on some fad, you'd just have to ride it for a few years and really lay on the "streamer" persona. Stream constantly, do the obnoxious Twitch things (facecam, calling out donors, coming up with a name for your fanbase of idiots, etc.), and land sponsorships from clueless corporations, especially if they want you to shill for some other game, since it means you'll be in on the ground floor of the next fad. Meanwhile, live frugally and put all the rest of your money in the bank, and learn how to invest it wisely. When you've got enough saved up, you're in the clear. You could stream less often and/or drop the charade and just be yourself again, or just quit entirely and live off of your nest egg.

Congrats, you've retired in your twenties and have the rest of your life to fuck off and do whatever the hell you like. For a few years' worth of becoming a soulless shill, it seems like a decent tradeoff. However, I can guarantee that a decent amount of these streamers don't have an exit strategy, and they think the gravy train is going to roll on forever. Some could parlay their "experience" into working for vidya, I'm sure, but others may be in for a rude awakening once they're no longer the flavor of the month.

even fucking reddit told them to fuck off with that shit, afterwards they backpedaled hard "it was all a bug" other retarded excuses, nevermind that shit was in development for over a year and someone at respawn decided THAT'S the version they want to release to the public even when outdated.

if you don't think that makes it moba there's plenty of other shit that's retarded, like QTE rodeo that's just suicide against a good pilot or. it also fixed none of the issues they tried to fix or think needed fixing, like with hero titans they tried to fix "meta", only to have fucking tonefall for months or how a game tends to snowball only to snowball even harder in 2. and let's not mention frontier defense where they took 9 months for a fucking horde mode and still managed to completely fuck that up with the aegis system.

don't get me wrong, it's still easy to have fun in the game but that's mainly due to elements established in tf1, most shit they added in 2 is completely pointless and a step back.

Why people watch streamers? To live through win. Too bad modern winrate matchmaking regulates amount of wining people can get.This is outdated and counterproductive concept. This is why esports are flopping. People want to see pwnage not struggle and losing.

Game should be made such way that ensures that streamers always wins.

It either should be made in crypto way secretly manipulating matchmaking behind scenes to inflate winrates of streamers.

Or openly done. Designing game asymmetrically around "pray and hunter" concept and give positions of hunter to the best players ( including handpicked streamers).

I've been saying this here for years now, and if any of you have actually spent any time in a twitch stream and watched the comments you'd see it quick and easy too. Like the sadder posts on youtube, these people treat streamers as they would a friend, and often try to start a conversation with the streamer in chat, which obviously gets ignored unless it's tied to a donation, or they respond to the streamers questions they state in the stream. It's obvious as fuck the streamer is a stand-in for a friend, and to me is the most likely reason for all the donations. The validation they receive from another human being as a result of giving them their money, especially one they've tricked themselves into thinking is their "friend".

Ever see one of those donators who drop 300 on some random fucking fag, or chick? That's the only conceivable reason I can think of to donate cash to any streamer, let alone hundreds of dollars, especially when your reward is at best, the streamer responding to the donation and maybe MAYBE the question or statement attached to the donation you gave them.

I have hundreds of hours in TF|2 and even I can could see this.

>Most of the early Maps are roughly three-laned

>Titans get split into classes.

>Mob Farming.

It borrows a lot from MOBA design. In my opinion that doesn't make it a bad game however. When you're dealing with giant robots and soldiers there's going to be some power imbalances. I think the idea for the titan classes wasn't to make Titan vs Titan better, it was to make Titan vs Pilot better. The AI grunts were already a thing with the first game.

They also added a lot of old maps so i'd say the maps are split roughly 60% three lane and 40% normal. Angel city is still the best map.

It's not actually about the games, but it might be a draw. The main motivation for donating to streams is social validation/acknowledgement.

They go watch someone playing a game they like, so that draws on familiarity, and second for the person playing them. In my experience I watched Vinny for a while and still do because he's chill, he plays nothing but shitty indie games, usually, and that's it.

It's mainly based on fulfilling a social need which isn't being met for most since everyone's retreated into themselves in the modern era. People are less likely to reach out to others because they're scared of eachother due to the media, and teh media provides and empty calorie version of social interaction as a substitute. It's why we're here, too "Don't forget you're here forever.".

This isn't a natural result either, the media has made concentrated attack on the ideas of "strangers", stemming from 1% cases. The media and the people in hollywood specifically have changed the people's perceptions of people. Intentional or not, this is prime "divide and conquer" shit.

It's not about generations or anything like that, this is across the board in my experience.

Their employers are not actually advertisers, it's twitch, which is why twitch can ban you for almost anything. Advertisers are like a side gig, since most of a streamers income come from subscriptions and donations, which is community funded, and their service is that they give a portion to twitch for housing and allowing them to stream on their site.

The reason why these streamers are often hated for advertising is because it's not their main job, they rarely if ever disclose it, as they know it'll piss off their viewers because the biggest reason of all, it makes it painfully obvious to the viewers that they're being shilled to and their "friend" shroud isn't actually their friend at all, but an entertainer that is tricking and taking advantage of them.

Also, for anyone anons who want to be extra disgusted, the main guy in control of twitch moderation, Hassan, this muslim guy, often bans slutty streamers that show off too much cleavage, or get sexually explicit and only allows them to be unbanned and continue without further bans if they do him "favors", like sending him nude pics and other stuff. His entire follow list is apparently nothing but thot streamers.

Vid related was banned for this, for obvious reasons.

i trust ninja, and even if he really took the money and didn't tell about it when playing that game, nobody really cares!

the way he is doing his livestream i like a lot, i know you guys on hatechan think this is cringy and shit, but again, nobody really cares.

i also know that some of you guys now try to tell me, the only reason a retarded npc like me would trust him and like his stream is because big big corporationpay a lot of moeny to brainwash me, so i think i would like it just because they want me to think that.

but really guys, nobody cares, i know, it is a dead meme to say nobody cares, and do not start to tell me this is just another meme made by the big big corporation to project and kill any self thinkers out there.

all you have to do is just trust him, he is a good goy

Handful of whales - that's how the vast majority of retro streamers make due. And by making due, I mean typically living in a squalid sweat box or ghetto while still receiving some outside support from family or a significant other. Very few retro streamers do well enough to survive off the twitch income.

People point to subs, but look at the number of gift subs that are getting given out. Even those are just a product of whales.

>When you're dealing with giant robots and soldiers there's going to be some power imbalances. I think the idea for the titan classes wasn't to make Titan vs Titan better, it was to make Titan vs Pilot better.

except it was working well enough in tf1. titans were not paper thin, losing one at the wrong time put you at a disadvantage and good pilots were still dangerous and the maps supported it both (and why most of the maps in 2 are shit).

the reason they went with fixed loadouts was because respawn is a) lazy b) shit at balance (always were) c) honestly believed it will fix any "meta" by making every titan viable - nevermind that shit happens organically due to versatility etc.

<listing journo faggot articles.

>not knowing who erik kain is

point out where he's wrong? besides, it's more about the retarded developer comments. have another pearl of wisdom - fun fact: no one used XO when the fucking arc cannon exists. I've seen more people run TT than XO. not even on consoles does the XO make any sense. that should give you some impression how respawn designs and balances their games.

>There is no contract between the streamer and the devs controlling what they have to say; all they do is have them play the game.

"Videos will promote positive sentiment about the game. Videos must not show bugs or glitches that may exist."

“Requirements involve one livestream, one YouTube video, and one Facebook post/tweet in support of the videos. Videos will have a strong verbal call to action [...]"
