  1. I did not include the streaming of things other than games as while continuing to stream his recording of his Ask the King YouTube videos, he patently refuses to expand outside his comfort zone of a YouTube Let's Player that streams while recording for their videos to a modern streamer who posts their streams on YouTube. He may claim that YouTube is "just an archive of the streams", but the dedicated YouTube Intros that repeat almost word for word what was not moments ago said on the stream says otherwise. An Archive video starts at the beginning and includes everything. The daily Unrecorded segments before and after he leans-in to click start/stop make it crystal clear that a YOUTUBE VIDEO is being made. He is slowly coming to the realization that he often brings in more money while 'Just Chatting' for the 15-20 mins before clockout time than while he was recording footage for his YouTube Let's Play. So I do expect to see more of this type thing. To be honest, I'd prefer him do 'Just Chatting' streams than his 'Chill Streams' as they are getting closer and closer to going full Twitch Thot with at his own admission that " It's not about the gameplay, it's about the interactions" and viewers coming to watch a game being played should go watch a different stream. It's just too cringe to watch a long time Gaming YouTuber start down the road of game play taking a backseat to seeking 'interactions'. I no longer attend the 2nd streams not watch the videos. He could, but won't stream DSP Tires it videos ( of food or NON-food items) and Cooking with the King episodes. Fans want both of these and the only valid reason I can come up with for his refusal is that the wife won't allow him to film anything outside of his gaming room. This said, I'd rather not a repeat of last year's additional tier DSP Tires It Sub goal where he ate a handful of dry Holiday theme cereal out of the box while seated on his loveseat...
  2. I looked at the last 100 games played and almost HALF of them were AAA Title Action Adventure Games (46). This makes you, for the most part are a AAA Title Action Adventure Game streamer. Out of the past 100 games played, 46 of them were Action games, 11 FPS, 8 Platformers, and 7 were Fighting games. A 'Variety Streamer' should play more than 4 genre of games. There are 37 different genres of games. Amazingly, out of the 37 different video game genres only 17 genres have been played with 9 of those 17 only having 1-3 titles represented: Racing: 3 Hack & Slash: 2 Open World Sandbox: 2 Visual Novel: 2 Battle Royale: 2 Puzzle: 1 Stealth: 1 Dungeon Crawler: 1 Thriller:1 There are 20 genre of games completely unrepresented. 20 genre of games not played once in the past 100 games that have been played. A self styled Variety Streamer that only plays 17 of the 37 genres with a single genre being hands down the most frequently played doesn't really speak of much 'variety'. The main reason for such a skewed list of game genre being played is due to the slavish insistence on playing only AAA Titles, the majority of which are Action game titles. One had hoped that after being cajoled by stream chat to play titles such as Plague Tale and Untitled Goose Game you would have gone on to seek out and play other non-AAA Titles of your own accord. Sadly, that was not the case as the streams are back to a schedule of nonstop New AAA Titles. In order to become a true 'Variety Streamer', it's time to discard the outdated 'Day One' AAA Title Youtuber model and branch out toward playing more A, AA and Indie Title games. Once upon a time, playing games on their release day proved to be a profitable YouTube video model. Those days are long gone. For years, YouTubers and Streamers have been given games early, streaming and posting videos of the gameplay before the game is released. Seeing as for some reason I cannot fathom you choose to not avail yourself to FREE copies of games early the only logical course of action is to discard your old way of doing things. When 'Day One' rolls around, countless streamers and YouTubers have already been playing the AAA Title New Releases for days if not weeks. Outside of your fans, few people are going to be attracted to your 'Day One New Release' streams as most people interested in the game are already watching a streamer play the game or following a series on YouTube. It's time to move on as it is no longer a viable option trying to compete with others for views of New Releases.
  3. @PhiI Here are step-by-step instructions on how to set a YouTube Playlist to play on a loop that does not play videos outside of the Playlist. While I myself have never had a video from outside of a Playlist start to play I'm taking your word for it being something you have had difficulty with it occurring. Step one: Click on the Playlist of your choice. Step Two: Click on the 'LOOP' icon. Step Three: To stop the next 'Suggested Video' from playing move the slider to the left.
  4. Fans select the 'genre' of the costume. He picks out which costume he wants to wear
  5. I don't recall seeing a thread to vote on the games that were nominated for this upcoming Halloween stream and there isn't a poll in the nomination thread. I was a little confused that Luigi's Mansion 3 made it onto a poll as no one nominated that game. First Luigi's Mansion game on gamecube was nominated, but not Luigi's Mansion 3. The games that won and will be played during this upcoming Halloween stream according to the Minecraft stream tonight are as follows: Bloodstrained Ritual of the Night Blasphemous Visage Stalker Luigi's mansion3
  6. During first stream, he said a King costume would fall under the 'Wild Card' category. "Totally zany"...
  7. @MoraMoria Trip vlogs, Staycations: He hasn't done any because he couldn't. I mean two of the times he flew Kat out to Seattle, he had told viewers that he was taking that time off to clean his house and rest. His new girlfriend was a secret until he decided to post pictures of the back of her head in December. Unfortunately, I don't see any in the future either .
  8. Honestly, this may be true for him. The more you do, the more you can do. The average person who is considered to lead a sedentary lifestyle gets vastly more exercise. They leave their homes five days a week. They walk from their cars/transport to their office. They walk to and from places while at work: washroom, breakroom, etc. They leave their desk to go eat lunch and at the end of the day walk to their car and drive home. Once home, they do all the other things ""moving", making breakfast, streaming, washing, eating dinner, clean up and shower" with perhaps 'streaming' not being on that list though there are many people who work full time jobs that come home and stream for as many hours as he does.
  9. Okay, another pro hot tip @Phil...MOVE your laptop or where ever it is your read chat now to a place you can SEE IT WHILE PLAYING. This is what streamers have done for years and years before they incorporated stream tool addons to help them with this. While I in no way expect any addons to be incorporated, perhaps, MOVING the laptop so the game AND chat are in the same eyeline would be prudent as this has been a commonplace practice since 2012 for streamers not engaged in PC gaming...where a second monitor on their desk showed the chat.
  10. This thread started in Sept of 2017 has seen an number of very good suggestions. Suggestions I do not feel that @PhiI has taken the time to read as I can safety say that none have been implemented. I will at this time point out that many are well known, well used and financially solvent suggestions having over the past going on 2 years been implemented by other streamers to great success. @PhiI should scroll up to read them. I'll add some others: 1) Be on time. . . period The stream is set at quarter past the hour. I can count on one hand the number of times the stream started at that time in the last month. This is Okay. If it is too early, then set the start time to half past. If the stream manages to start early, then viewers would have to sit through less songs of the 15 min + pre-prestream as I call this segment. Why do I say that being on time to start a stream that has 15+mins of music pre-prestream? The stream is posted to start at a certain time. I will wager that 95% of the viewers either have jobs or classes to attend and know to be on time. Repeated tardiness in our society is frowned on and learned at an early age. Streamers, unlike employees and students, make their own schedules. If quarter past 10AM is to early, then set the time back. The streamer's audience is not only their customers, but also their Boss. A shop that regularly opens late or an employee who regularly shows up late for work will see negative repercussions irl. Going out on a limb, but I will proffer that the 15+ mins of songs is a buffer for tardiness. While this may work on regular viewers who know to tune in at half past, potential new repeat viewers do not. A streamer should be on time to start their stream or push that start time back to a time they can manage. 2) The streamer should engage their audience without having to be prompted to do so. It is the streamer/YTer, the entertainer, who should drive engagement. Tell stories. Ask questions. Doing so will drive income as viewers strive to have their message read ( a-la the Minecraft stream goldmine so many others discovered years ago). This is why the successful streamers/YTers keeps ontop of whatever is relevant to their stream be it games, current events or social media/memes. The streamer/Yter should inform their audience not be informed by them. Folks in this profession are not called 'Influencers' for nothing. Streamers/YTers should strive to be ahead of the curve, ahead of their audience not behind it. They should at the very least be up to speed. Before the 'I can't get games early' card is thrown, being Ahead of the curve means the Streamer does the research and reaches out to the devs. Once you have the game early, what can anyone do? This takes time and effort though. This is why being a successful streamer/YTer is not a 9-5 job. It takes work after the stream is over, after the vid is edited and published. It takes the work of Seeking out the games that are being made before they become common knowledge. It takes time and effort. Does every game pan out? No. Can being on the forefront pay off? YES! PlagueTail did not come out of nowhere. It wasn't even an 'Indie title'*. Which is why so many other people were streaming the game, which caught the eye or your @PhiI's audience, who repeatedly asked it to be played in a timely manner. "stupid questions" are asked by Fans. It is known, that you, @PhiI may not understand why they ask as you have proclaimed to never had any role models, been interested in sports nor have any hobbies, one may safety say that 99.9% of other people have one or more of these as a point of interest. Thus they ask questions. As a streamer/Yter, it is part o f the job to answer these questions: Favorite this or that. If you truly do not have a favorite anything ( which boggles the mind) then make something up. It's not that difficult. Role-players do it all the time. I can offer you several Character Creation sheets with questions to answer for your character**. It's a simple matter of staying IC ( In-Character) during streams. Countless streamers, Yters and Role-Players do this. Prestreams can then be OOC ( Out-Of-Character ) the way role-players talk with each other outside of RPing up to the Cheer/Tip segment where you @PhiI then go IC. *https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Asobo_Studio ** https://www.roleplayingtips.com/characters/character-questionnaires/
  11. The utility may not require payment of more than seven percent of the customer's monthly income. In addition, the customer must pay one-twelfth of any billings from the date application is made through March 15th. If the customer does not pay the past-due bill by the following October 15th, the customer will not be eligible for protections under this section until the past-due bill is paid. 7% of $10k= $700. One-twelfth of any billing is markedly less with a grace period of 8 months. Using only the Metrics freely available online for Twitch income. Seeing a steady 150,000 Weekly Views on YT, using the conservative $1/1k views for a channel that lacks an MCN, I cannot imagine many bills being paid with a passive income of $150x4/month ( $600) off of YT income for the past year.
  12. In the case of Patreon he acted pennywise and pound foolish in the first place. What's done is done and he did it to himself. He was a 'full time streamer' from the onset back in 2013. Difference being Twich didn't have tips and cheers back then and he was still making enough off YouTube to openly diss Twitch streamers back then who asked viewers to Sub to their Twitch channel ( see below from before cheers and tips were a thing on Twitch with Tweets posted by him before he went back after learning about the additional revenue stream of Tips and cheers): He's a "full time streamer" now, times change...
  13. Not seeking to be banned, but.... @PhiI saying that because you have been able to carry on for ten years might not be the best response to folks who offer legit criticism . You started streaming on Twitch in 2013. LOTS of things have changed since then. To be honest, everyone knows that you know very little about either Twitch, YouTube or how the world in general has changed in the last decade. Knowing this, it would be best if you took a step back before going on rants baited by folks who know you;re going to comment on things you have outdated knowledge about and they can use to make you look bad. This could be easily fixed by putting n a modicum of time reading trade publications to keep abreast of the news an trends related to your 'business'. Denoting every contrary opinion voiced with a BAN does not serve to grow your Brand as new viewers you may wish to foster as return viewers are better served by not being summarily banned on their first day for having names that are felt to be a slight ( Twitch is Millions of channels and multi-Billions of users. Not every name you might think is as a slight against you means it is) and not every new follower who types something you don't like isn't a "detractor" Hate to say it, but get over yourself. Twitch is so much larger than your channel of 400 viewers. One would think the last WoW where 6 folks showed up but only three hung around would have taught You a lesson. As far as addressing critics: 1) Know what you're talking about. If you don't don't pull facts out of your ass as it is a different world than it was ten years ago. As you said a simple Google search can Dox folks on the forums. Not your fault, being such a neophyte but sorry, but YOU are 100% t blame by poking the bear you alone awoke by declaring her as " undoxxable" and gloating over how safe "she was due to her having stopped posting on"Social Media" and after one pic posted on Instagram she was doxxed in less than `15 mins should have taught folks something. Pro Tip: Don't Poke the Bears, but if you do don't blame others should it blow up in your face. 2) Know your soapbox: You may find that you "have to lie to protect your family" Granted not many take it to ..lvls....seen. \ PweDiePie with 100 mill subs most likely has 10mil of then being trolls. He told his fans he WAS going to get married, just not the day...for his easily researched wedding having spent 800thousand + just to rent the space. License , flowers, catering and photos not included to have his wedding at the world renown Kew Gradens with a Honeymoon in Bali . Feelsbadman I guess @PhiI has his reasons for both lying to everyone for months. I believe he recently said that it was to "protect his family". While I am sure he believed this was necessary in his own mind one cannot help mirror much larger YouTubers who did not feel the need to lie about their wedding or adopting pets: While @PhiI adopted a desirable declawed kitten , PewDiePie adopted a one eyed adult dog who most likely would have gone without a loving forever home. https://pewdiepie.fandom.com/wiki/Maya But it is not only this one streamer adopting an adult pet that might not be adopted by other people : (Spudgy was 4 when he was adopted, blind in one eye as well with numerous other problems ( hips, heart and jaw ) known about at the time of adoption) https://youtu.be/8Cogn6x3o78?t=300 RIP- In Memory of Spudgy: 2004-2018 2)Don't bann dissent or assume to know more than the person in chat. 3) Listen to what folks have to say 4) Don't call criticism an attack. Ten years on YouTube should have grown a thicker skin so refrain from banning every comment that might not fall in line to the narrative as that is a noob/SJW thing to do. Most folks might want to help,
