Gamingforgood idea started because of the 1 % cut TwitchAlerts took. (+1% cut split payment PayPal)
Athene like many other streamers was not informed about this.
People started asking question such as here:
TwitchAlerts response to unhappy/questioning costumer:

TwitchAlerts started contacting bigger streamers that moved from TwitchAlerts to G4G.
As a result this video was made:
*Email displayed in video above is an email from Twitchalerts to streamer Elajjaz
versatileRaptor on /r/forsen wanted to do his own research and approached TwitchAlerts asking if it was true that Twitch alerts had contacted streamers who merged over to G4G. Twitch alerts deny:
Twitchalerts: Hello, It is just someone accusing us to try and ruin our reputation. We would rather not give attention. People will believe what they want. We are not involved in any of this drama.
Their response leading "versatileRaptor" to believe Athene is slandering TwitchAlerts.
In which he posts the following on https://www.reddit.com/r/forsen/comments/49y521/athene_is_trying_to_frame_twitch_alerts/
VersatileRaptor: They deny everything, including sending the email and they know that Athene is trying to damage their reputation.
TwitchAlerts' 'No Fee' = 30% Cut?
Saying free for ever
No cut no fee NickiTaylor says 70% goes to support streamer then tweets out about it not being true and removing VOD of being a beta tester.

Mojopowerz: this is a huge viewbot scam
Cronoh (Vulcun employee) chatting in AtheneLive twitch chat: http://overrustlelogs.net/Athenelive chatlog/March 2016/userlogs/cronoh
Cronoh: Viewbots are back : P
Cronoh: twitchalerts does not take any fees
Cronoh: if he didnt care about money, he wouldnt be trying to slander twitchalerts to promote his own website, which is owned by the notoriously evil G2A
Cronoh: i feel bad for this unknown guy who is streaming on his channel right now, just a follower of a scammer
After streaming 24/7 for +1000 hours, we stop streaming because of viewbot hurting the cause. Keep going on discord. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ufoj_JqmeAI
Brussels Attacks video. Get commented on by several Vulcan / TwitchAlerts employs.
All the video was used was taken from maximusblack that showed it on stream.
Twitch alerts copied the g4g music player, and we announced the idea of donating and playing funny ads to people that use TA the next day. The G4G community start to make their own ads.
The ads event got censored by TwitchAlerts, first they block videos posted on discord / twitch chat. People start to re-uploading videos and Twitch alerts then blocked all videos the past 30 days.
We find out the true identity behind Cronoh aka. Andrew steele coincidentally as Maral had met him in person at Twitchcon and he had given his business card to her:

Cease and Desist Demand from TwitchAlerts (aka Vulcun and StreamPro):
Twitch alerts on twitter: https://twitter.com/TwitchAlerts/status/714295353516826625
CEO of Vulcun Ali Moiz mojolabs1 posted twitch alerts response on /r/forsen subreddit a subreddit who has actively censored others for posting proof regarding Athene.

4 - Still censored for posting proof - to this day - http://i.imgur.com/YlGTtVn.jpg
Ali Moiz claiming on twitter that Athene didn't want to have a call, and posted private conversations with 'Hubert':
TwitchAlerts have now censored donations messages with the word Gamingforgood/G4G/Athene
CEO of Vulcun Ali Moiz 'mojolabs1' posted forsen subreddit that they need backup on /r/twitch
No evidence of viewbotting according to Vulcun employee:
Athene and the CEO of Vulcun have a call on stream highlight here:
CEO Ali Moiz said he wrote the Cease and Desist Demand from TwitchAlerts himself.
Ali said they would forget about everything in C and D if Athene and his viewers stop harassing and spamming, since 'hundreds and thousands' of their streamers using TwitchAlerts had complained about Athene and his viewers 'spamming donations'.
For the time being, based on the advice that TwitchAlerts' CEO gave me in the call, I will explicitly tell my following I might go to jail when they mention 'GamingForGood' or 'Athene' when donating to streamers using TwitchAlerts and I'll do so until I have gotten further legal advice - Athene.
TwitchAlerts didn't pay all streamers who enrolled for the 1% Payday program. Streamers contact TwitchAlerts several weeks after they should have been paid out.
Athene then made this video saying he don't mind paying what TwitchAlerts owe them
Streamer confirms getting bought by Twitchalerts to switch back (exclusive contract) and said it was the only reason to switch back.
athenelive: Hi Athene here, was wondering if you had any bad experience with g4g?
Streamer: hello athene!
athenelive: always like to improve the platform
Streamer: I got offered a sponsorship through twitchalerts
athenelive: ah thank you Im happy you are honest about it
Streamer: It is the only reason I switched really
athenelive: it seems to be exclusive as well
Streamer: The terms of the sponsorship are that they are the only alerts I have
athenelive: I hope they offered a lot because you were doing really good and you will miss out on a lot but Im always happy for the streamer if its better for you
Streamer: Hey thanks a lot, I appreciate it very much
athenelive: no problem any time wish you the best and glad you liked the platform
Streamer: I wish you the best as well
And here the video Athene made about this topic
