HEAR ME OUT!
I use adblocker,
but I also run the entirety of onepiece muted on loop with ads on a separate computer,
The ads are just so oddly timed on crunchyroll sometimes,
sometimes it's placed where it's meant to be, but other times, it just cuts the show off in the middle of an intense scene,
how much does an ad earn crunchyroll anyway?

Depending on the amount of viewers, the duration of the add and the usage of a add platform a regular add earns CR approx. a few cents per roll (Could be as low as 0,01 depending on how the add market is doing). Or at least that is my educated geuss. The amount in of itself is nothing to write home about. Of that I am sure. However the revenue get's up when adds are clicked or lead to the selling of a product. Also. Even small amounts accumulate so I think the add revenue makes up at least a small bit. I am fairly certain however premium members pay for most of the expenses. Because a single user just can't accumulate about multiple dollars (or euros) a month by watching adds.

Remember, this website makes the anime legally available and for free also. Killing adds makes it harder for Cruchyroll to get the good licenses because add the end of the day they don't get the revenue but they still got the expenses. And what you are doing isn't exactly ok. Sure you are running the adds but you are using 2x the bandwith and servercapacity of CR. So basicly you only 'pay' for one stream that you use out of two.

Crunchyroll was preventing people from using Ad-Blockers awhile back by rolling an annoying video when an Ad-Blocker was detected, but they seem to have stopped. Not sure why.

I run ads on a separate computer, I just leave it on mute, and rely on auto play to do the rest, Is that so wrong?
I'm technically just moving where the ads play on.

Probably never. Most people don't have a static IPs (at least with my ISP if I unplug my modem for 10 minutes I can get a new IP from their pool) so it risks punishing innocent people and potentially pushing both to illegal sites.
I suspect they'll end or limit free streaming, and it does seem like they are trying new things both carrot and stick. For example, giving the first episode free in 1080 and no ads but you have to wait two weeks.




As for the OP, sounds like more trouble than it's worth.
