Twitch bans stream sponsor overlays, and “I've never seen creators so pissed”

Enlarge / Visual examples of the kinds of "burned in" sponsorships that Twitch's new guidelines won't allow. A recent update to Twitch's guidelines restricts many kinds of overlaid ads that streamers can sell and insert on top of their own content. And while Twitch now says it "missed the mark with... policy language" that was "overly broad," many major streamers are still up in arms over a policy they say could severely affect their ability to make money from content on the popular Amazon-owned streaming platform. In a June 6 update to its Branded Content Policy guidelines (that Twitch says it will start enforcing on July 1), the platform said that so-called "burned in" videos, display banners, or audio ads are not permitted on the platform. These ad formats are popular with many major streamers, who sell a portion of their screen real estate as part of overall branded stream sponsorship deals. While basic sponsor logos will still be allowed to be shown on these streams, those sponsorships "are limited to 3% of screen size" under the new guidelines. That could be a problem for some disabled streamers because, as blind streamer Steve Saylor pointed out, that size "isn't accessible

MrBeast considers Kick stream as a protest against Twitch –

Jimmy “MrBeast” Donaldson is not even a gaming streamer, but he wants to stream on Kick “out of spite” against Twitch. When we think of the biggest content creator in the world, our minds instinctively gravitate toward MrBeast. The content king likes to stick to YouTube challenge videos, but he’s now eyeing the streaming world. However, his reason is entirely different. Twitch recently rocked the gaming ecosystem with a new TOS, restricting streamers from putting on-stream brand overlays bigger than 3% of screen size. The same rules also prohibit directly inserting video ads, audio, and banners into streams. The changes have prompted a severe backlash from the Twitch community, including YouTuber MrBeast. Taking to Twitter, MrBeast expressed his disappointment regarding the new TOS, pointing at the possibility of Kick stream. Hey @Twitch how about instead of handicapping what creators make, you help them make more? Seems more logical.— MrBeast (@MrBeast) June 6, 2023 Will MrBeast stream on Kick? MrBeast recently flirted with the idea of live streaming but on YouTube. Now that he has a solid reason, a Kick stream isn’t completely out of the question. The content creator is standing shoulder to shoulder with Twitch streamers, hinting at a

Related video: Kim Kardashian accuses Kanye West of starting Drake affair rumours'One Dance' rapper Drake – real name Aubrey Graham – was left in an awkward situation on Saturday, when the musician with a reported net worth of around $250m (£200.7m) tried to donate just short of $500 to an online streamer, only for his VISA card to be declined.Graham was hosting a livestream when the incident occurred, over on the platform Kick - which seeks to rival popular streaming site Twitch.The stream itself was to promote the online cryptocurrency casino Stake, and it was when Drake wanted to gift $499.99 in subscribers to a streamer known only as Daisy that he experienced some problems.And it all unfolded while Daisy was broadcasting herself getting a foot massage.As you do.After entering a verification code to authorise the purchase, the dialogue box disappeared to show the payment hadn’t in fact gone through and Drake would have to try and pay again.Sign up to our free Indy100 weekly newsletter“Embarrassing,” said Graham in a high-pitched, sing-song voice, as fellow rapper Lil Yachty smiled at the mishap next to him.Given Drake’s aforementioned net worth, it’s unlikely the musician himself is in any financial difficulty, and

Diablo 4 has its first level 100 player – PCGamesN

The first known player to hit the Diablo 4 max level cap is here. Diablo 4 Twitch streamer and YouTuber Rob ‘Rob2628’ has reached level 100 in the Blizzard RPG game after close to three days of almost non-stop blasting. His success makes him the first person to reach the milestone and publicly announce it, although the method by which he got there shows just how strong playing in a group is in Diablo 4. Rob, who has adopted what’s widely considered to be the best Barbarian build, primarily focused on shouts and the whirlwind skill, has been almost exclusively playing in a group for most of his time. He hit the max milestone about a full level ahead of the second-placed publicly listed player, and more than two levels ahead of the players in third and fourth. That may not sound like a big ga p, but the grind is real no matter which of the Diablo 4 classes you’re on. In total, Rob’s playtime to hit max level clocked in at around 54 hours since launch, and it’s estimated that the exponential climb in required XP makes the final ten levels almost as long to complete as the
