Krepo Becomes the First Riot Caster to Monetize His League of Legends Stream

By   /   Jan 23, 2017

The official band of casters for League of Legends is prohibited by Riot Games to monetize their streams and other related content. If a caster does stream, the session features no donation or subscription tabs. Likewise, any original video content created by a caster is released to the public without any advertisements.

Mitch “Krepo” Voorspoels, former Support and current caster/analyst for the European League Championship Series (EU LCS), is the first to break away from these chains.

Taking to Twitter yesterday, Krepo announced that the “Subscription” button has returned to his stream and viewers can once again donate if they so please.

Taking into account the stern rules and regulations placed by Riot Games, it was thought that perhaps Krepo had parted ways with the League of Legends developer. However, that doesn’t seem to be the case.

During his stream, Krepo confirmed that he renegotiated his contract with Riot Games. He also mentioned that he had to make some “sacrifices” to get back the Subscription and Donation buttons on his stream. No further details have been released for the public so far.

Does this mean that we’ll be seeing other casters renegotiate their terms with Riot Games as well? That really depends on what sacrifices Krepo made during his talks with the company.

During his time with League of Legends, Christopher “MonteCristo” Mykles was always advocating better terms for casters. One of his major requests was to allow casters to earn from their videos so that they can finally start making informative original content. Such would prove beneficial for all parties involved; including the game, community, developer, and of course, the caster.

He was more than happy to see Riot Games allow Krepo to monetize his content. However, he didn’t let the company off so easily.
