Welcome to the 42nd!

Who is Sacriel?

I am a YouTuber, Live-streamer and lifelong gamer...

In late 2012, I chose redundancy at an ISP where I worked for 6 years as a Product Manager in order to commit to growing my channel full-time. I wanted to take my gaming career more seriously but working every day meant there was not sufficient time to create enough content and satisfy my followers. I had saved a long time and used my life-savings to float me in this endeavor. Since then, my stream and the 42nd community behind it have grown exponentially.

I am blown away by the overwhelming support my viewers, moderators, fellow streamers, game developers, friends, and Shannon, my wife and community manager, have shown me over the years and I look forward to how far we can go together in the future. I couldn’t have made it this far without all of your support and I hope you continue to enjoy my stream, YouTube content, fun banter and the great people I surround myself with!

What is the 42nd?

I get this question a lot: what is the 42nd...?

A long time ago I made a YouTube account by the name of Sacriel42, originally I wanted Sacriel but it was already taken. I added 42 to the name inspired by Douglas Adam’s The Hitchhiker’s Guide to the Galaxy. YouTube eventually redirected youtube.com/sacriel to youtube.com/sacriel42 but Sacriel42 remained my channel name.

Many years later I began live streaming which is a much more interactive medium and I was able to directly talk to livestream viewers. I quickly began to notice that I was being surrounded by a great and inspiring community and I wanted them to have a name, a title, something cool. As I predominantly play military games somebody took the “42” out of my youtube channel and said “42nd, like “the 42nd battalion.” The community named itself October 8th, 2012.

Over the next few weeks, my pages were all rebranded to reflect my respect and pride for the 42nd. Each day I grow prouder and prouder, they are the greatest online community, each day they blow me away with how funny, interactive, respectful, sincere, warm and welcoming, generous, hilarious and charming they are. It is commonly noticed in my channel that my chat is very calm, interactive and welcoming for a stream holding thousands of viewers and it’s extremely humbling to be part of such a great community.

Every day I get messages from various people in the 42nd who have situational, medical, physical or mental issues and they thank me for creating a place for them to enjoy gaming content and feel part of a group that doesn’t judge them. Every day I get tweets from around the world of people doing ‘the 42nd’ which is a hand sign which represents the community. The community is so strong that even Dean Hall, creator of DayZ, tweets out pictures of 42nds and even rocked the 42nd atop Mount Everest.

So that’s what the 42nd is, my extended family. I couldn’t, and wouldn’t want to do this job without them. I have an extensive moderator team which quickly grew to be great friends – close friends who I talk to everyday and have met in real life around the world – and we’ve worked together to help people in the community change their lives.

Gens una sumus. We are all one family.

Channel Currency

The points system (we call them “Tags”) allows you to earn rewards just by being a viewer...


42nd Tags rewards you just for being a viewer! The longer you watch, the more Tags you earn (see your total by refreshing the Tags extension on this page, or by checking on our Tags site), and you can redeem Tags for entries in our monthly sponsored globally available giveaways including CORSAIR peripherals, Elgato gear, and Intel products, as well as game keys and occasional surprise items!


  • 1 Tag per 10 minutes of stream viewing (Sacriel streams 280+ hours a month, meaning you could earn 1680 Tags or more, just by watching!) on browser, mobile, Xbox or PS4 app, but you must ensure you are logged in and connected to Twitch chat and not in fullscreen mode
  • Night Owl: 2 Tags per hour for lurking in the channel during offline hours
  • Early bird: double earning bonus for the first 60 minutes of every stream (so 12 Tags for that hour)
  • 15 Tags per week for following @Sacriel42 on Twitter (your Twitter account must connect and remain connected to the Tags site for verification)
  • 15 Tags per week for following Sacriel’s Youtube page (currently offline and will be fixed soon)
  • 15 Tags one-time immediate bonus per account for new Twitch Prime Subs
  • 25 Tags one-time immediate bonus per account for new Tier 1 Subs
  • 40 Tags one-time immediate bonus per account for new Tier 2 Subs
  • 99 Tags one-time immediate bonus per account for new Tier 3 Subs
  • 60 Tags per week you are subscribed to Sacriel on Twitch, awarded on the day of the week you subscribed
  • 20 Tags per resubscription notification you share in chat (that means as long as you’re subscribed, you earn 280 bonus Tags per month!)
  • 25 Tags for each Sub-gift you give – the person receiving the subscription will get the 60 Tags per week that all subscribers receive, and if they upgrade to a Tier 1 Sub before their gift expires they get the one-time 25 Tag bonus


  • On the Tags extension, click “Grant Permissions” (connecting your Twitch account to our Tags system), then select whichever giveaway you wish to enter and click “Redeem”. All Tag redemptions are final.
  • Game key giveaways: standard key giveaways are rolled most days, randomly throughout the stream. You must be in chat and respond to claim if you win. EoD keys will be emailed to the winner so they do not need to be in stream to claim – EoD giveaways are rolled immediately whenever we hit sub milestones of 250! So 250, 500, 750, and 000 on the sub counter on stream triggers a giveaway (sub drops just under the number and then back up again do not re-trigger a giveaway).
  • Hardware and any other physical giveaways: All hardware giveaways are rolled at the end of the month – you do not need to be in chat, we will email you to collect your address for shipping.

We roll all giveaways on the final day of each month (or the next closest day if we take the last day of the month off).

If you’d like to see more details on your Tags, then you can log in to our main Tags site where you can also redeem your Tags. When joining the Tags page click the purple Connect to Twitch button to link your Twitch account.

On the Tags page, your available Tags will be visible next to the current Giveaways, reload the page to get a fresh number (see below how to earn tags).

The total number of entries you have for each item will be displayed on the details page.

Extra info on the giveaways:

  1. All giveaways are globally available unless otherwise stated in the giveaway item description.
  2. If you win hardware or other physical prize, you will be contacted via email for your shipping details and you must respond within 48 hours to claim your prize or we will roll again!
  3. All ticket purchases are final and cannot be refunded.
  4. Physical prizes typically take 21-40 days to arrive. If you have not received your item after 40 days, please contact [email protected]
  5. Sacriel Entertainment is the promoter of all competitions on the Tags system.

Subscribing and tips support

My Livestream has a subscribe feature which helps support my channel and also Twitch.TV themselves for bringing this great site to us all for free...

I jam-pack my channel full of perks for viewers who decide to subscribe and spend lots of time developing great features to make the stream more interactive and entertaining. Subscribers on Twitch are given a rank in the 42nd and the benefits that come with that rank.

Perks of supporting me:

  • If you subscribe on Twitch or send PayPal support, I consider you a ranking member of the 42nd. This means you immediately get a colored name in my chat reader and you are assigned a rank according to on your level of support. I spend a lot of my spare time finding ways to celebrate and reward the amazing generosity of the 42nd community – for example we have a community Discord which all ranking members of the 42nd can access. It is packed full of great members of the community who play games and watch the livestream together in the many rooms available.
  • There are many ranks in the 42nd, each comes with different benefits as my way of thanking you for your support. Any PayPal gifts given, as well as continuing your Twitch Subscription, stack up together towards your rank. All ranks gain access to the following benefits:

The 42nd loyalty badges are inspired by British medals of civilian merit, followed by ascending ranks toward knighthood (the Most Excellent Order of the British Empire). In the UK, these ranks are awarded for notable contributions to culture and community. Similarly, I wish to honour how subscribers become pillars of our community.

PAYPAL Support:

Many people ask if they can make direct PayPal gifts to help support my channel – I have a PayPal link on my page which allows you to help support me in this fashion. PayPal support are greatly appreciated and I show my gratitude to each person by giving them a rank in the 42nd and the benefits that come with that rank. If you do support live during the livestream your message will appear on screen for everybody to see, it will contain your message; your name and your 42nd rank (but will NOT display the amount you gifted unless you opt for this). The glorious 42nd in the livestream will throw up a wall of celebratory emoticons to celebrate your support.

Twitch Channel Rules

Why we have rules and why they matter to us...

Sacriel, ShannonZKiller, the Mod Squad, and the whole of the 42nd strive to ensure that this chat and all connected places of conversation (Discord App, etc) are kept a welcoming, non-judgemental, and non-confrontational environment in which everyone is treated with respect, regardless of any characteristic or credence. Our rules are detailed to the best of our ability out of consideration for all chatters, to inform you all and avoid as much confusion as possible. They are extensive but NOT comprehensive – and no one is immune from these rules. We are all held accountable. Gens Una Sumus. We are all one family.

  • Respect EVERYONE and KEEP IT CLASSY! No Racism/Sexism/Homophobia/Rape jokes or other hate-based speech. This offense we take seriously and may perma-ban without warning. Also, there is a difference between rude negativity on any topic and constructive opinions. Please be mindful of this, and act like a gentleman/lady. WE FOLLOW WHEATON’S LAW.
  • NEVER ask why you or another viewer were timed out in chat. Simply read the chat rules during your timeout and when your timeout ends, continue chatting as if it never happened. It was just a few minutes. It ain’t no thang.
  • “I was just joking” is not an excuse if you take a comment or question or insult too far. Further to this, saying “Kappa” doesn’t make being really rude or offensive ok.
  • All controversial topics are not appropriate here. This is a place to chill, have a laugh, and be entertained. It’s our positive, happy place! It is NOT a place to discuss politics, war, moral issues, patriotism/anti-patriotism, religion, piracy, drugs, tragic or heated issues in the news, etc, or any argumentative and pointless topic (really, arguing in a gaming chat is the most pointless of pastimes). Further, ad block is NOT an appropriate topic – any promotion of things that undermine Sacriel’s livelihood are not welcome.
  • Spoilers. Posting any kind of spoiler (true, false or jokes) will get you timed out or banned depending on the severity of the spoiler.
  • Do not ask for or share server info. Sacriel doesn’t share it and would appreciate that even if you know the server he’s on, you also do not share it. Thanks!
  • English language We love interacting with our viewers but we only speak English, so please try to keep conversations in English! Thanks for understanding.
  • Please do not spam or type in all caps. 42ndBot lurks and automatically deletes all caps messages without warning and repeated abuse will earn you a timeout.
  • No arguing with the moderators. At all. This includes being disrespectful in chat. The mods work hard and are diligent in enforcing these rules fairly across all of chat. If you have a problem, Whisper LordBoogzor.
  • No links allowed. We only allow links of clips from Sacriels channel. Any other links are only for moderators and 42ndBot-verified chat regulars. The Mod team picks the regulars. Please don’t ask to be a regular.
  • No advertising anything (another channel, website, YouTube, etc) without direct permission from Sacriel or the mod team.
  • Stream sniping (and extreme cases of stream stalking aka finding me in-game as a friendly) can be a bannable offence. When Sacriel does a subscriber event or invite people to tag along, that is when it is appropriate to join him in a game. Thank you for respecting this!
  • Do not beg/ask for games or Twitch subscriptions to be gifted to you. Doing so will get your message removed from chat. Repeatedly asking will get you longer timeouts.

Looking to request a ban appeal? If you wish to appeal a ban you may do so by sending an email to [email protected]. Include your Twitch username and explain why you believe you should be unbanned. All appeals decisions are final. Thanks for understanding!
