* LoveItOrHateIt:
** Ridgedog was by far the most polarising member of the group during his tenure, for reasons explained below:
*** His constantly delaying or cancelling streams and his infamous 2014 Christmas stream [[note]]in which he got drunk and left several hours early, leaving a helpless Bebop to try and get things back on track and resulting in the lowest amount of money raised[[/note]] also has not helped, and neither has his absence from any other Yogscast material. The announcement in 2016 that he was no longer a member was met with either surprise that he had only just left or rejoicing.
** Due to accusations against him, Sjin has fallen into this for reasons [[YMMV/{{Sjin}} best described on his own YMMV page]].



* ReplacementScrappy: Inverted with Angor taking over the place of Ridgedog as GameMaster for various contests. Angor has become considerably less divisive and gained a sizeable fanbase, whereas Ridgedog was LoveItOrHateIt and was viewed as too trollish by some.

* BreakupBreakout: Has by far been the most successful project spun off from the "[[Website/SomethingAwful Goon]]" banner.

** Creator/AdamSandler, ever since the ''Film/{{Pixels}}'' fiasco in which Happy Madison Productions made targeted advertising for the group's fans without permission or even getting their name right.

** The entire network combined, not including now-removed channels such as Gamechap and members who quit such as Dead Workers Party, amounts to '''twenty-five thousand and seven hundred videos rounded down to the nearest hundred''', as of August 2015.

*** While many still find him funny when he shouts and panics in an over-the-top manner, others feel that his style of humour is getting old and isn't as good or intelligent/inspired as it used to be. While this is something that one group of viewers are willing to tolerate in small doses, others find it grating.

*** While many still find him funny when he shouts and panics in an over-the-top manner, others feel that his style of humour is getting old and isn't as good or intelligent/inspired as it used to be. While this is something that one group of viewers are willing to tolerate in small doses, others find it grating. He's notably calmer after returning from hiatus, easing the divide.
*** While there are plenty of fans that still like him, particularly due to his advocating LGBT causes and campaigning for the disenfranchised for his conduct online and behaviour has earned a fair degree of flak, particularly his flipping out at [[Creator/TheCynicalBrit TotalBiscuit]] and calling him a "crying pissbabby" [sic], then rudely insulting the Yogscast subreddit when called out on it. Some opted to watch and forgive him, others chose to unsubscribe from his Twitter and the main channel ([[MisplacedRetribution plus others, such as Duncan, that had absolutely nothing to do with it]]- which is a sore point for many Yognaughts since they don't want the network to be associated with his actions). He was, however, RescuedFromTheScrappyHeap later, in no small part because he was suffering from intense depression at the time which caused people to do a 180.



* LGBTFanbase: Despite some occasionally offensive content, the Yogscast have a notably large LGBT fandom. This particularly applies to Kim and Zoey; the former is but is incredibly supportive and outspoken against homophobia (and has identified as 'not straight'), the latter is a lesbian and very caring towards her fans.



* RescuedFromTheScrappyHeap: Both Lewis and Simon became very divisive figures around early 2015, in part due to their arguments with other groups and the view that their content had become stale. However, Lewis managed to redeem himself when Simon fell ill, due to his reorganising the channel and getting many members of the team involved for a wide range of content such as ''GTA'' and ''Gmod'', by no means an easy task. Simon calmed down considerably online, and as time went along fans forgave him for some of his more infamous outbursts due to his humorous tweets; his return in ''Trials of Skobbels'' was also considered a great return to his older style of humour.

** Kim was a very divisive figure to begin with, but has since developed a loyal and devoted fanbase.
** Harry Marshall, aka [=VeteranHarry=], became a borderline Scrappy after the Twitch chat in the 2015 livestreams, which many fans found very annoying. His later participation in some livestreams and the ''Rust'' server in 2016 have since won most of the fans back.



* TheScrappy: Ridgedog is this among the Yogscast LGBT community due to his allegedly transphobic behaviour. Asking for fanart of him is not a wise idea. Since his departure, the official subreddit has since joined in with criticising him.

*** While he does still have some fans due to his bizarre humour, dressing up as himself for Minecon 2013, incredibly well-done builds and (former) status as GameMaster, the aforementioned transphobic behaviour has been criticised, as has his allegedly telling a trans individual to go and kill themselves when they mentioned they had suicidal thoughts. Ridge is also blamed for the most disastrous charity livestream of 2014, in which he got so drunk that he fell asleep an hour in and left Bebop to try and (unsuccessfully) get things back on track; the result was a livestream in which only $3,000 was raised. His somewhat aggressive demeanour online, delving into BlackComedyRape jokes and allegedly sexist attitude towards admins (which has led to allegations of blackmail and further abuse) have only fanned the flames, and when he left very few Yognaughts seemed to miss him. His post-Yogscast career has been notably lacking, with him drunkenly ranting against the Yogscast and saying he was the reason they were successful.
** Harry became this for a while during the 2015 livestreams as a result of the rampant chat spam, which many fans found unbearable and blamed on him. He was later RescuedFromTheScrappyHeap after partaking in some livestreams himself, and the ''VideoGame/{{Rust}}'' server for Yogscast members has notably given him a chance to shine.

His somewhat aggressive demeanour online, delving into BlackComedyRape jokes and allegedly sexist attitude towards admins (which has led to allegations of blackmail and further abuse) have only fanned the flames, with many calls for him to be either DemotedToExtra or fired altogether. Others just find his content boring.

** Zigzagged with theists. Lewis and Sjin have made a number of sharp digs at religion in the past, but there have also been many jabs at more aggressive atheists from the duo as well, plus Simon.

** A good chunk of complaints about the new "Conquest" channel are related to the videos being sponsored, or at least offering the chance for players to win a {{Playstation 4}}. Weirdly enough, there were very few complaints when it came to their ''Heroes and Generals'' skits, or their ''VideoGame/PlantsVsZombiesGardenWarfare'' short, both of which were filmed and released long before the "Conquest" channel was even launched.
