WHAT HAPPENED?

Ludwig hit out at Twitch over the reported changes they’re making to revenue split over subscriptions, calling it “crazy” while also pointing out how much some streamers are set to lose.

They’re considering taking people who are currently making 70% for every sub and just slicing it down to 50%, which is kind of crazy. That’s a 20% pay cut for thousands of streamers. That’s a lot of people who are going to be losing a lot of money.

Ludwig noted that the changes won’t affect some of the top streamers, like xQc and Mizkif, given they already make obscene amounts.

Using the example of Smash Ultimate commentator CONEY, who has around 2,000 subs, they could go from making around $84,000 a year to $60,000 by just losing $1 a month per sub.

While Ludwig noted that Twitch retains a few advantages over YouTube, it’s clearly not all rosy on the side of the Amazon-owned platform.
