D&D 5E Twitch Breach and huge data dump with some purporting CR earned $9 million over three years

I crit!
Twitch has confirmed there was a breach. A twitter user has put together some numbers that purport the $9 million over three years but that calculation is under some debate. Pastebin took down the images so I found a better article about the breach.

On top of the financial stuff, this is a good reminder to reset your passwords and stream key because it's probably been too long since you've done so. Even if you don't stream, reset your passwords and your stream key. And don't forget your chatbots or other accounts you might use. Reset password, reset stream key, turn on two-factor authentication (use an actual app, because emails and phone numbers were part of the leak, they can be spoofed). Because Twitch can be a nightmare to navigate:

Password Change: Click on your icon in the upper right, go to Settings, then Security and Privacy, then Change Password. You can set 2FA from this screen as well

Stream Key: Then go to Creator Dashboard, Settings, Stream, and click Reset next to your Primary Stream Key. You'll need to copy-paste it to your streaming software before you'll be able to go live.

This all looks really speculative right now. Maybe its true, but it's really soon to know.
Looks pretty legit, I haven't been on it in years, but I better figure out my password again...

I'm disgusted xQc makes that much off of being absolutely a toxic kid in Overwatch.
 

I've got no problem with how much money CR is making. It's really no longer (and hasn't been for years) a couple of friends just playing RPGs and streaming it. These guys are professionals, they put on a professional show, they have professional sound, lighting and camera people. And they have lawyers and legal fees and all sorts of business overhead.

They have invested their time and money and have been successful. That's great that they appear to be getting financially rewarded.
 





Every time I have to log into Twitch, it invariably involves clicking the Forgot Password link.

What was my Twitch password again...

It would be better to talk about how Critical Role started their own charity foundation, which is pretty darn cool of them. Even outside of their earnings, their ability to signal boost makes it no small thing:


Yeah. Using leaks like this to discuss the earnings of private businesses... is pretty sleazy. I mean, I doubt few here would be happy if their own financial information was made available on the internet.

Am I reading this right, is Critical Role the biggest revenue-generating stream on Twitch? That seems like a big deal, regardless of the actual number.

Screaming, of course.

Yeah, by a bit. And not really that surprising. I wonder what the time frame on those numbers are.
