Recently, another Twitch streamer has required a certain donation goal to keep streaming. If you were on social media during the glory days of Call of Duty, 2008-2012, then you may recognize this Twitch streamer. Going by a few names, many in the community know him as WingsOfRedemption. However, he has gone by his real name of Jordie Jordan on YouTube and Twitter. Infamous for a number of reasons, perhaps his biggest claim to fame is losing a 1v1 battle against Tom “Syndicate” Cassell on Modern Warfare in 2009. Well, WingsOfRedemption is back in the spotlight, though it’s not for a great reason.
WingsOfRedemption demands donations on Twitch
While Wings has been somewhat popular in Call of Duty since around 2008, he hasn’t seen much growth. On YouTube, he’s been sitting at just above 400,000 subscribers for years and years. Although, Twitch is where he resides for the most part nowadays.
If you simply search WingsOfRedemption into Google, you’ll find dozens of clips of him streaming Call of Duty. However, the clips usually revolve around Wings’ behavior rather than the gameplay. Since his arrival on Twitch, he’s gained a reputation for being mean to his chat. This reputation held true yesterday when he demanded money to keep streaming.
So far, the clip has garnered over 60,000 views. This is a hot topic in the community, as another streamer by the name of BadBunny recently said the same thing on her stream. However, according to Wings, not receiving donations is apparently his fans’ way of making sure he doesn’t earn a livelihood.
Before he eventually turned off his stream, Wings had this to say to the audience: “Why do people always want to f*** with me to this level? These people are stopping me from trying to earn a living at this point.” The opinions on this topic are up for debate in the Twitch and gaming community. However, most believe Twitch streamers shouldn’t demand money from their chat when it’s not required by any means.
