Love & Respect!
First an foremost, let me quickly express that I am a huge fan and that I love the broadcasts (even though I still miss GT dearly :( ). I love the personalities at play, the topics are great, yadda yadda yadda.
Since I like your work, I feel compelled to support the work of the EA crew, but since me and my wife are barely getting by, paying a monthly patreon fee does not come easy - especially because I don't know if it is even needed.
Please bear with my for a second:
EA staff is earning roughly 39.000 $ per month via Patreon, resulting in 468.000 $ per year. There's also money coming in from youtube ads, merchandise sales, additional sponsors etc. that is difficult to meassure. I also don't now how much maintainance for the website / upkeep for studio equipment etc costs them, but overall it would appear that the allies are quite well off. If their revenue totals something like 600.000 $ per year and it was split evenly, each of the ten members would end up with a 60.000 $ salary - for "playing games all day".
Of course, I am sure that more money will always be appreciated, but it's unclear to me if more is even needed at this point. If you are a fan of Brad Pitt, you don't have to support him on Patreon, because you know he has more money than god and he'll be able to keep making movies regardless.
Once again, I've been - and still am - a big fan and I respect the hell out of everyone involved!
I just wanted to bring this up and hopefully be enlightened.
