    Well, they make alot of money over the year, I wouldnt think that donation would be the end all of it If you look at Toweliie. Who don't do donations, and gives alot of stuff away. he end about 90k a year in DOLLAR. thats pretty hefty, that is a good educated salllory here where I live. and he uses commercial, have a avarage about 3-4k viewers each time he streams. with like 70% using adblocker, and a youtube channel. and reckful making over 2k a day sometimes, not TOO far apart from each other, I'd say NO, they wouldn't stop streaming without that donation :P They won't stop until they are bored, another streamer comes and do better streaming and are more entertaining, and is highly skilled in pvp as Reck or has a good tounge as Towellie . Either way, all props to them! very nice streamers. and wish them all well.

    Reckful entertains 10,000+ viewers every day sometimes for 10+ hours, he deserves to make lots of money. If you only got the equivalent of a minimum wage job for streaming entertaining content for ~70 hours every week for 8-13,000 people that wouldn't seem right.

    Amhai and others have been doing this for a long time, before stream donations it was pure boost/account/title buying.

    Reckful got 10k, cdew got 10k, and soda got 41k. They have it IN their paypal, the dude still has a month to recall it, but as of right now they have it, and they haven't spent any of it as far as i know, I think reckful gave away 100 bucks but technically that doesn't have to be the guys money since he makes that pretty easily streaming.

    Again they DID get the money, the guy STILL has time to withdraw it. YOu can go to twitch.tv\reckful twitch.tv\cdewx twitch.tv/sodapoppin and look through their vod's and see for yourself.

    Edit: seems like everyone found out it was real so i just seem like a goombah pointing it out

    oh well i'm glad they got the money, soda ehhh i don't mind him, i really like reckful and cdew though, they put out content that entertains me, i don't find amnesia and ghost peppers entertaining lol

    I doubt it's fake, depending on how much annual interest ahmai gets on his capital, he earns that money in 0.5-2 days by doing absolutely nothing...

    if it is really from yaspresent, then it will be from abudhabi since "yas" is related to it. ever since i read that name few months ago when they had their own pvp tournament i had a feeling that they are really from abudhabi.

    i know few names that i think might be behind it. not mentioning any though.

    I meant it as in tax evasion, don't think some random dude gave him that much money.

Its just as awkward as seeing a 35 year old dude wearing a Peyton Manning jersey at your local Walmart. Get a grip people, they're not gods.
    What the fuck? wearing a football jersey doesnt mean you idolize that person. If that were true, then it would be like every music cd you own would mean you are idolizing that band/singer/songwriter. Get a grip.

    It's hard to say no to Yoo-Hoo chocolate drinks...the name literally beckons.
