late night with cry and russ

So hey, today is Cry’s birthday!

Cry recently had surgery to get his gall bladder removed, but Cry being Cry, he decided that the health insurance thing/whatever it is you Americans use to not have to pay thousands of dollars for basic health care was sketchy, and didn’t get any health insurance.

Needless to say, the poor guy is stuck with a massive bill after the surgery.

Jund started a fund to help him out, and tonight The Late Night Crew (minus Cry who is still in bad shape after being cut open) is gonna be streaming like they usually do on Saturday night, this time focusing on helping collect funds to cover his hospital bills

If you have a few dollars to spare, think about donating, please

What is happening to Cryaotic's channel?

Okay, this is a source of confusion for me and someone needs to help me understand this.
What on earth is happening to this channel? What’s with the prolonged break? I am aware that Polaris is making his videos private. I’d like to know exactly what this Polaris is, because to my knowledge, a YouTuber doesn’t need any company at all behind him to have his channel function correctly.

I may come off as rude and harsh, but it seems just strange to me. If there is no need for a company like that, why let them practically violate your channel? Have a look at some of Cryaotic’s playlists now. All of Crisis Core is private. First episode of Life is Strange? Private. Last episode of VtMB? Private. It seems illogical to me that you would allow a company to do this and put a flimsy company’s childlike sulking before your fans that have been there with you for so long, and would love to continue to do so.

I was told to download the videos before they become private, but I personally can’t do that. I don’t have any memory on my computer. And by the time I was told to do this, most of the videos I wanted to enjoy were set to private. So what can people like me do? I’m sure I’m not the only one in this predicament. Do I just kick back and accept that this is the end of Cryaotic, my favorite YouTuber? Maybe I should move on, start watching others instead? I don’t want to do that, but I don’t know if there is any point in waiting for another video from Cry anymore. Was the latest “More to Come” a lie?

I’d love to hear your opinions and explanations. I honestly don’t understand this situation and I mean no hate by this post whatsoever, I’m just deeply confused.
