You play wow man. You cant exactly complain about people throwing money away. If those in the wow community (myself included) were smarter with money blizzard would not be in business.
I personally have never given money to a streamer nor will I ever. You need to realize though that some people smoke, drink, do drugs, some play wow, and some give money to streamers. Were all pathetic in our own way.
I am not sure if this is a serious post.How is paying 15 bucks for a computer game a vice? I can understand if someone is addicted to mounts, cards, statues whatever they sell in blizz store but I don't think that applies to the majority of the people in pvp community.
Also , I don't understand why people find it unimaginable that someone donates to a streamer. When you enjoy the meal, you tip the restaurant staff or when you enjoy the live music at a pub etc, you tip the performer, it's the same concept. It doesn't make you a fanboy moron that throws money away, it's just social etiquette; you have fun watching a stream, you support the streamer.
That said I don't find reckful's stream interesting, it's too much about donations and kinda dull but I subscribed to 1 channel and don't find it weird at all.
