How to Support
I am often asked what the best way to support the stream is. As such, I have created this page to list many of the ways to support. There are both free and paid options. Some of the free options do financially support the stream as well. I’ve tried to be as transparent as possible regarding which paid options give the most as well.
By using this link ( https://amzn.to/2EBLkl9 ) for all of your Amazon purchases, you will financially support the stream at no extra cost to you! Please consider bookmarking this link as well as giving it to friends and family.
You can subscribe to the channel for either $4.99, $9.99, or $24.99 per month. 50%+ of this revenue currently goes to the streamer. You can either click here to subscribe or use the button on the AdamVsEverything channel. If you subscribe during a live stream a special alert will play (currently from a pool of 5). Here are the current subscriber perks:
- Directly support the stream
- No more ads on the channel
- Additional Discord channels
- A channel sub badge based on the amount of months you’ve subscribed
- Access to the AdamVsEverything custom emotes anywhere on Twitch. (Special silver and gold versions of the adamvsSUB emote for tier 2 and tier 3 subscriptions respectively.)
Twitch Prime Subscription
If you have Amazon Prime, you can subscribe to the channel at no additional cost to you (this does not auto-renew, so be sure to click to use your Twitch prime every month). You get all the same great benefits of a traditional subscription (emotes, no ads, etc.), and the channel receives the same financial amount as a tier one subscription. Learn more about Amazon’s Twitch Prime program by clicking here.
Humble is not just a place for subscription bundles, they sell Steam keys of games in their shop. By purchasing anything through the AvE Humble partner link, 5% of what you spend will come back and support the stream (this does not cost you anything extra). In addition to this, a portion of your purchase helps charity, and the game developers get a bigger cut compared to Steam. Buy your games where they are cheapest, but if they are equivelant on Humble or on sale there, why not use the affiliate link? (As with the Amazon link, feel free to share this with anyone you’d like!) Humble Partner Affiliate Link.
The great thing about tips is that all the money goes to the streamer (minus Paypal fees – 2.9% + 30 cents per transaction ). Due to PayPal fees, more money goes to the recipient if you donate, for instance, $5 at once rather than sending it as 5 different $1 donations. You can leave a tip at any time by clicking here. If you leave a tip during a live stream a special alert will play (all voiced by Darkest Dungeon’s Wayne June). Here are the current tiers and their corresponding special alerts:
- $1.00 – $4.99 = “A Kind gesture.”
- $5.01 – $10.00 = “A generous bestowal.”
- $10.01 – $20.00 = “A gleaming endowment!”
- $20.01 – $50.00 = “A resplendent offering!”
- $50.00+ = “A magnanimous dispensation!”
- $1.01 = “Class is in session.”
- $1.50 = “Yay.”
- $2.99 = “Love, peace, and chicken grease.”
- $3.50 = “Well, it’s about tree fiddy.”
- $4.20 = “Truly, this is the dankest dungeon.”
- $4.23 = “Happy birthday.”
- $5.00 = “Five dollars buster.”
- $6.66 = “Tonight we dine in Hell.”
- $7.77 = “Yoshi (song)”
- $8.88 = “Carl Poppa (song)”
- $9.99 = “Medi Rave (song)”
You can also ‘cheer’ using bits. To learn more about bits, click here. Each bit you cheer in the AdamVsEverything channel directly donates one cent to the streamer. So, for example, cheering 100 bits gives Adam exactly $1 (Twitch does not take additional % from a streamer’s bits). If you cheer during a live stream a special alert will play (all voiced by Darkest Dungeon’s Wayne June). Here are the current tiers and their corresponding special alerts:
- 1 – 24 = Jester stress relief sound.
- 25 – 79 & 90 – 499 = “A Kind gesture.”
- 501 – 1000 = “A generous bestowal.”
- 1001 – 2000 = “A gleaming endowment!”
- 2001 – 5000 = “A resplendent offering!”
- 5000+ = “A magnanimous dispensation!”
- 25 = “Gotem!”
- 36 = “Boom! Headshot.”
- 69 = “Hahaha!”
- 73 = “You’ve been thunderstruck!”
- 80 – 89 = “Hope you like the 80’s.”
- 101 = “Class is in session.”
- 150 = “Yay.”
- 299 = “Love, peace, and chicken grease.”
- 350 = “Well, it’s about tree fiddy.”
- 420 = “Truly, this is the dankest dungeon.”
- 423 = “Happy birthday.”
- 500 = “Five dollars, buster.”
- 666 = “Tonight we dine in Hell.”
- 777 = “Yoshi (song)”
- 888 = “Carl Poppa (song)”
- 999 = “Medi Rave (song)”
You can sometimes earn bits completely free that can still be used to financially support the stream! To do this, click the bit icon below the chat (near the emote button), then click ‘Get Bits’, then click ‘Watch ad’. Each ad can give anywhere from 2-100 bits which you can then give to any streamer! Be sure to try often if it says none are available at that moment. Sometimes works on mobile and not desktop.
Watch the Stream
The number one best way you can support the stream for free is to simply watch! This goes for both actively participating in chat or simply lurking and listening.
Any time the video for the stream is playing it counts as a view. This helps the stream become more visible as well as gets Adam closer to potential sponsorships and bounties. Please note that if the stream pauses it will not count as a view. As such, it is suggested that you right click your browser tab for the channel and mute it this way rather than muting the actual stream. You can also turn down the video quality using the small gear in order to save bandwidth while AFK or on mobile etc.
Word of Mouth
Whether you are inviting a friend or family member to come hang out on the channel, telling a funny anecdote from the stream to someone, or posting about the channel in applicable locations where it is allowed (gaming forums, communities, Reddit, etc.), one of the greatest ways to get new eyes on the stream is through word of mouth. This also includes sharing clips, videos, and social media posts.
Following the stream on social media outlets can help in several ways. For instance, potential sponsors look at social media reach and activity when deciding on new content creators to partner with. If you like, share, and/or comment on social media posts, that is even better. Here are the links for the most applicable social medias where you can support the stream: Twitter, Instagram, Facebook
Watch, thumbs up, share, comment, etc. on AvE YouTube videos to help get them into more recommendation lists. This includes letting YouTube videos of VODs play that you already watched the live stream to. Of course, subscribing to the YouTube channel if you have not already also helps.

Host , Raid, Auto-Host (Even if not a streamer)
Be sure to use the ol’ /host adamvseverything or /raid adamvseverything command when you finish streaming (or when you see that the stream is live). This helps even if you have zero viewers at the time. You can also set your Twitch account to automatically host the AdamVsEverything channel when it is live! This is true even if you are not a streamer. To do so, please follow these instructions:
Click here to go to your Twitch settings.
Click on the ‘Channel’ on the left
Click to turn on ‘Auto Hosting’
Click ‘Hose List’
Search for ‘AdamVsEverything’ and click the ‘Add’ button
As a bonus you can click ‘Host channels by the order they appear in the list’ and use the arrow buttons to move the ‘AdamVsEverything’ channel to the top of your list
Make sure to scroll to the bottom and click the ‘Save Changes‘ button.
Thank you for all the support!
If you have any questions at all, please feel free to ask.
