Was sick, moved countries, getting settled, etc…etc…sorry this is so many days late!
Every week I’ll post a thread on http://www.reddit.com/r/Destiny/ with the top 5 questions you want me to answer. They can be pretty much anything you want. I’ll answer the top 5 most upvoted questions.
Doing this for two reasons – 1) so I can keep in contact with the community, and 2) to help answer some commonly asked questions here to alleviate all of the e-mails I get.
“How do you feel when you see other players that do similar things to you on your stream that have gotten you in trouble but they have no repercussion from their team or the fans of Starcraft?”
Just stopped caring about it. No point stressing over it, just a waste of time.
“You’ve mentioned that you’d shy away from Sc2 if you came back from MoW and you weren’t placing any higher/performing better in tournaments.
Would you shift to a general purpose streamer (i.e. some sc2, some LoL, some Misc games like final fantasy, etc.) or would you look to exit the streaming industry and try and revert to a more traditional job?”
No clue what I’d switch to. Maybe LoL, as it seems to have the largest fan base at the moment. Maybe DotA 2 if it grows more. Would obviously do anything to stay in this industry as opposed to going back to conventional work.
“What ever happened to playing da games with Phantoml0rd? I remember you two playing Diablo 3/DayZ a lot but then after that not so much. Was there a falling out? Or just you focusing more on Starcraft 2?
Thanks for streaming so much and keeping in touch with your fans.”
Just focusing more on SC2. If another sick game comes out that has multiplayer available, I might play it with him. We’re still cool with each other.
“What’s one event/gimmick/marketing move you did that surpassed your expectations in getting you are where you are in terms of viewership? What is one that underperformed in terms of your expectations?”
I was really surprised at how many viewers I got while playing DayZ. If that game would have did something more to quell the hacker situation, I might have considered taking that up as a secondary game and made a permanent part of my streaming schedule.
On the flipside, kinda surprised that HotS flopped so much in terms of interest. Was expecting 25k viewer Stephano/Idra streams and what not, but the bump in viewerships was barely noticeable, maybe 20% instead of the 80-130% I was expecting.
“What’s your family like? Evil siblings? Supportive mom? Freakish cousins? One-eyed uncle maybe? Any funny stories regarding your family?”
I’m not much of a family person, so I don’t talk to my siblings all that much. My mom/dad are crazy hardcore Christian/Republicans, but they’re super supportive and I wouldn’t trade them for anything in the world.
