Recently retired Call of Duty pro Doug ‘Censor’ Martin may have an explanation for the mysterious instances occurring around his home, thanks to footage taken by his security cameras.

Censor played a clip of the footage during a video on October 25, which showed two individuals walking onto Censor’s property.

The individuals in question appeared to be an older Caucasian man and a woman of color wearing a dark sweater, who approached Censor’s front door before passing out of sight.

Censor was understandably spooked by the incident, and even thought that the woman could have broken into his garage while he was away.

“It looks like she went right inside of my garage, which really freaks me out,” he admitted.

Censor then claimed that he would be looking for a new home in his next vlog.

The footage follows a string of incidents that Censor detailed in a vlog on October 24. According to Censor, he’d found a dead bird with its eyes gouged out on his front step, alongside the sudden appearance of a ghost decoration in a tree in his front yard.

Additionally, Censor claimed that his dog had brought him a slew of dead birds, and that an eagle had crashed into his bedroom window during a previous live stream.

While the eagle incident goes unexplained, Censor might have the answer to the spooky madness happening around his home.

He has yet to file a police report in response to the trespassers.

Streamers slam Twitch over new ‘Celebrations’ feature taking 50% of tips

Twitch have sparked controversy after testing their new ‘Celebrations’ feature again as they’ve begun ‘targeting’ donations – with a reported 50/50 split.

Plenty of Twitch viewers are desperate to get involved with their favorite streamer – either simply as an active member of chat or someone who supports the stream with their own money.

This typically comes through subbing to a channel, by purchasing bits from Twitch itself, or donating through a StreamLabs link. The first two of these options support both Twitch and the streamer as each party receives a cut of the money.

Donations, however, all go through to the streamer, usually through third parties like StreamLabs and PayPal, and Twitch doesn’t get a cut of those. That could be set to change with their new Celebrations feature – though it has sparked backlash.

TwitchViewers can support their favorite streamers through features like Bits.

The feature in question was being tested back in June, with subscriptions and bits kicking off an on-screen celebration animation which usually came in the form of fireworks.

However, with Twitch testing the feature again, streamer Zach Bussey noted that they are now targeting donations through Celebrations as streamers can set a donation amount that will trigger the animations. 

On top of this, Bussey noted that the split for these Celebration donations is set at 50/50 and says it’s being pushed “hard” as the button to trigger it has been placed prominently between the follow and subscribe buttons. 

With the news of the feature quickly spreading on social media, a number of streamers took aim at Twitch’s 50/50 split on the donations. 

“Thank f**k I can opt out, lol” tweeted streamer Vio, while others like ShannonZKiller and NeonDan urged their fellow creators and viewers to not use the feature if it does become a permanent addition on Twitch.

Others have speculated that, like mandatory ads, Twitch could work the feature into partnered streamer’s contracts in order to make sure that the feature is being used, should it be pushed out to everyone.

However, the streaming giants are taking feedback on the feature’s test from their streamers, so it could be in for some tweaks before everyone is able to use it.
