Twitch Announces Plans to Start Offering Affiliates Faster Payments and Custom Sub Badges

Popular streaming platform Twitch has announced that it plans to offer members of its Affiliate program faster payments and custom sub badges.

According to their June 8th announcement, Affiliates will start getting paid their revenue for each month (min $100) 45 days after the conclusion of the month.


This is a 15 day difference than the existing payment system, which made them wait a whole 60 days after the conclusion of each month to get their pay.

Furthermore, Affiliates will now be able to have custom badges for base, 3-month, 6-month, and 1-year subscribers. This is also a major change from the default sub badges that all subscribers to Affiliates were originally given, which featured a white star in a purple square.


Twitch has announced that it plans to implement the new payout period starting June 15th, which means that any Affiliate who earned more than $100 USD in April will get their pay on June 15th.

However, no specific launch date has yet been provided for the custom sub badges, although Twitch has mentioned that they will be availabe “by the end of July.”

These changes have softened some of the major differences between Twitch’s Affiliate and Partner programs, further shortening the gap the exists between the two.


This has not been received well by a considerable number of current Partners, who have expressed that this greatly diminishes the value of achieving Partner status, which so many have worked long and hard to get to.

The entirety of Twitch’s announcement can be viewed below:


Hey there Twitch Affiliate!

We have some important changes coming and wanted to give you a heads up.


What’s changing?

Starting June 15th, the standard payout period for Affiliates will be paid 15 days faster than before; Net 45! If you earned over $100 USD in April, you will be paid out on June 15th for it.

We’ve been able to make this change due to optimizations and improvements.

On top of all that, we are also happy to announce Affiliates will be able to recognize your dedicated supporters with personalized Subscriber-only chat badges. These will be available by the end of July for base, 3-month, 6-month and 1-year subscribers.

I need to get art ready for July!

Be sure to follow @TwitchCreates where we regularly ask artists to link examples of their emote, channel, and sub badge artwork.

Where do I go for more info?

For Custom Sub Badges, see below for our guidelines.

– You must upload the image in three different sizes: 18px x 18px, 36px x 36px, and 72px x 72px.

FIFA 21 TOTW 2 live: Lewandowski, Haaland, Kane, Saint-Maximin, more

EA SPORTS have released the second batch of Team of the Week players in FIFA 21 Ultimate Team, and it looks like there are some exciting cards up for grabs this week.

Following the completion of another busy game week across football’s top-flight leagues, a new set of TOTW players has been released, featuring some huge names and valuable cards.


Dexerto made a number of predictions earlier in the week, included at the bottom of this article, so let’s see how they stacked up with leaks and ultimately, the official team as well.

FIFA 21 Team of the Week 2

The full Team of the Week #2 in FIFA 21 Ultimate Team!

Just as with the first Team of the Week, the second TOTW squad is stacked with top talent, such as the likes of Lewandowski, Courtois, Kane, and Haaland. While not as high-rated as those studs, the likes of Milan’s Hernandez and Newcastle’s Saint-Maximin should also draw a lot of attention as being “meta” players.


Here are some of the players you might be interested in:

  • Erling Haaland (86)
  • Robert Lewandowski (92)
  • Harry Kane (89)
  • Thibaut Courtois (90)
  • Ben Chilwell (84)
  • Theo Hernandez (83)
  • Jack Grealish (83)
  • Ollie Watkins (81)
  • Allan Saint-Maximin (83)
  • Renato Sanchez (82)
  • Marcel Halstenberg (84)

FIFA 21 Team of the Week 2 leaked

Ahead of EA SPORTS confirming the full TOTW #2, the full squad was claimed to have been leaked – and the leaker even managed to get his hands on the same image that EA would end up tweeting out.

When did TOTW 2 go live in FIFA 21?

EA SPORTS revealed this next FIFA Team of the Week squad at 6PM (UK time) Wednesday, October 7, 2020. As per usual, they were announced and droped into packs at 6pm BST / 12pm CT / 1pm EST / 3am AEST.


These boosted player upgrades are now being announced at the same time as they drop in-game in FIFA 21, unlike other years where we knew about them three hours prior.

FIFA 20 Team of the Week 32 predictions

What a week! Competitions around the world have come back for the 2020/21 season, soon after the end of last year’s staggering campaign. The back-to-back nature of these seasons, it seems, is going to lead to some exciting games.

The biggest news from the Premier League this week was Aston Villa and Tottenham each dolling out huge defeats for Liverpool and Manchester United respectively. Ollie Watkins scored three and assisted one as he led the Villans to a 7–2 victory over the champions, while Heung Min Son was unplayable against United.


There were a number of other standout performances across the weekend too. Neymar Jr. was at his electric best against Angers, while FIFA 21 cover star Erling Haaland kept up his goalscoring record in a 4–0 win over Freiburg on Saturday.
