    Dude, stop it with the game streams. They're not watchable by anyone who doesn't catch them live. Stream on Twitch, YouTube is for your GREAT scripted content, not for popup streams that a lot of people who aren't on UK time can't even watch. Come on, you're smart, you know Twitch is the place for game streams and not YouTube.

    I think the "Grey Plays" should move to it's own channel. Even if currently-uploaded videos remain here, at least new ones should go elsewhere. I'm subscribed for the science, not for the gameplay.

    commenting here because CGP doesnt want to talk to us unless we have money putting your streams entirely behind a paywall is pretty lame i get you may not make much money as a youtuber but that doesnt mean you should punish your viewers who support you by not being able to communicate.

      Well.... You do get to watch.. 😅 And he must give SOME incentive to go over to patreon and such. He is after all not a streaming channel primarily. This could just as easily been done so it is a discord locked stream or something similar. I gotta say it was INFURIATING seeing how no one were able to guide grey to "THE hill", had I had the privilege of sending a message then I would be able to guide (given that my message would not be drowned out) It seems this is the way he chooses to do things, but do not believe for a second you are being "Punished" when you dont automatically get access to everything and anything he produces for free. Just the streams themselves are a privilege, dont shame him for giving you something extra.

      @Fishy boi 420 Actually, I did find the discord link on accident just now xD. By joining though, I did find out that you will need to link your discord to patreon for access, and I do not belive there to be any way around that. You are sadly stuck in the situation where the discord link is already leaked within the CGP plays channel, but access is still far beyond.

      Thats the way it is. Instead of a rumbling waterfall where only donations catch his attention he does the "pay to enter" equally effective at slowing the chat to reasonable levels.

      Why not? Nice to limit the chat so we dont get the waterfall of other streamers. If all 4000 viewers got access he would be in no position to read even close to all of it.
