Um... isn't UE4 free of charge for development and then once your game exceeds 3K bucks a month they will take 5% of that?


The 5% royalty starts after the first $3,000 of revenue per product per quarter. Pay no royalty for film projects, contracting and consulting projects such as architecture, simulation and visualization.

Confirming they run ads on many videos. Some are more bearable than others, and I'm really not sure if it's an uploader choice, a network choice or what.
Some videos have only one small mobile-like rectangular small add located at bottom-middle of the video, it tends to appear about 15-30 seconds in.
Other videos feature a series of such things, popping up every couple minutes or so, that's bloody annoying.
Other videos yet have a full-screen ad autoplaying right after the regular video ends.
And finally I've seen a couple occasions where the ad starts before the regular video starts, full-screen, unskippable, bloody fucking annoying. I usually just close that video and if this happens repeatedly for the same channel, I unsubscribe from that channel.

I do want to see adverts. But I want to see them the way I envision them to be displayed.
I want to be able to subscribe to advert types instead of letting the ad middleman make a guesswork based on which websites I access. I want text-based ads, located in a specific area, which I can glance at and scan quickly. I want to switch ad types quickly in that ad box if I need to.
So yes, I am curios about what's new in a certain area (e.g. games) and I don't mind well-placed, well-behaving, relevant ads. I don't mind them at all.
Sadly this is not how advertising works today.

with 50% of the staff fired now, they have removed the bottom 50% of performers.

My sarcasm meter went off the scale here but in the off-chance that you might have been serious...
That's quite the assumption there. Sorting employees by performance is never an easy task. It's actually really complicated.
A brilliant team with a shitty manager will look worse than a mediocre team with a half-competent manager. A group whose Director is friends with the VP will gat a pass ticket versus the group whose Director has clashed with the VP in the past. And so on.
