Interview with Premium Member: Destrroyo

1.) What is the one thing you love about your community?

Where do I begin? One thing I love is that no matter what, even if it is 1 minute or the entire stream, they come spend time with me but above all else they like my tweets, comment, share and just overall help me gain exposure when they cannot come hangout.

The love and support they show is worth everything to me. I am truly blessed to have the friends I do. Especially those that picked me up when I wanted to quit. That truly ignited the flame in me to keep going and being there for them.

2.) How did you get into content creation/gaming?

I have been playing games since I could hold a controller, but I always thought the idea of me being on screen would never go well as I have/had a severe lack of self confidence not only in the content I would/could produce but also how self-conscious I am of how I look. Being a disabled veteran and having limited job choices COVID left me at home playing video games due to losing my livelihood so I said why not? Why not me? Why can’t I throw on a camera and have fun?

So, I did, and I regret not doing it sooner. I love it! I love helping people, meeting new friends, interacting with strangers and overall sharing common interests with those I could never have had the ability to before.

3.) What was the best video game and worst video game you have ever played? Why?

Best game? I would have to say Dino Crisis. There is no link to the gameplay or story necessarily, but it was the first game I ever truly played through entirely with my dad and the nostalgia and memory of the game is just near and dear to my heart.

Worst game? Probably Fallout 76. It was basically an expensive mod for Fallout 4 that was just not worth the time it took them to make it. Truly awful.

4.) If you could collab with a community or influencer, who would it be?

This is a tough one. So many great names come to mind and deserve recognition but probably Lordminion777. I honestly just enjoy his content, his community, where he has come from as far as the world of content creating goes and everything he is doing.

5.) Who inspired you to start creating content or continues to inspire you?

Watching Lordminion777 truly inspired me to take the plunge but truthfully it was my wife. She knew it was going be tough at first at take a lot of time away from her as well as family stuff and though there were times she wanted me to quit or move on (even though she may not have vocalized it) she told me to just do it and for that I am eternally grateful.

She is my rock in this and kept me grounded since the start. For that I love and treasure her more than she knows.

6.) What is something you want people to know about you?

I love to help people. I want to help everyone I can whether it is on Twitch or real life. It is a dream of mine to start a non-profit to help not only Veterans but anyone in need in general. I do not boast or post much about the work I do or help I provide because the clout is meaningless to me.

Also, even though I am always super happy and upbeat I do struggle with my own demons and issues and if there is one thing I learned while dealing with this is that its ok not to be ok. If you are unhappy like I was, find what is making you unhappy and either cut it out or find a way to grow from it. I used to be very angry, hateful, stressed, etc. and for no reason whatsoever other than I thought I needed to be. It takes a lot to step back and reflect on yourself but if I can do it so can you.

7.) We have gone 5 years into the future, what does your content look like?

It sounds cliché but we will get there when we get there. I do not want to count my chickens before they hatch so to speak but I will say this hold on for dear life because come hell or high water we are going places.

8.) What advice would you give to the next new creator that you wish you were given?

Please, do not fall for Follow for Follow schemes, do not think those “post your link below so I can follow” posts are going to help you, they are for clout nothing more. You do not need to be in 200 discords, and if you are do more than self-promo. Also, the chance of you becoming famous or Ninja like overnight is 1 in a trillion so focus on you and your brand then in due time you will get there. Some advice I have may be mean or harsh but if you ever need some, reach out to me. It is what I am here for.

9.) Hot dog or glizzy?

I assume a glizzy is a hot dog but truthfully, I have no idea, so hot dog it is.

10.) Finally, if you were any animal, what would you be and why?

If I could be any animal, I would probably say Grizzly bear.

I like to eat, sleep and be left alone. I do not bother or yell at people unless bothered or in a position where I need to defend myself or others. My wife tells me I’m a grizzly bear anyway with my demeanor and candor and after thinking on it I feel it is fitting for my personality.

Interview with Premium Member: AllyReckless

1.) What is the one thing you love about your community?

I love how supportive and welcoming everyone is, within my community and those who are in the gaming community in general. 

2.) How did you get into content creation/gaming?

I got into content creating at the encouragement of a few friends. I started to befriend a lot of streamers on twitter and saw how much they enjoyed doing it.

3.) What was the best video game and worst video game you have ever played? Why?

The best video game I’ve ever played is probably Zelda BOTW or Fire Emblem Three Houses. Both of which my cousin suggested to me. We have the same taste, but it might be because he is the one who introduced me to video games. 

Okay this took a lot of thought, the worst game I’ve ever played was Rampage for the GameCube. I only played it because my younger brother enjoyed it.

4.) If you could collab with a community or influencer, who would it be?

Definitely Nintendo. I don’t know how it would work, but up until a year ago, I only played Nintendo consoles. I only switched to PS4 so I could start streaming!

5.) Who inspired you to start creating content or continues to inspire you?

Audree (DarlinSincerest) was one of the first people I reached out to for advice, and I definitely wouldn’t have gotten this far without her help. 

6.) What is something you want people to know about you?

I am the most forgetful person, especially on stream. Chat is always there to remind me Emoji

7.) We have gone 5 years into the future, what does your content look like?

I’d like to think that I’d be a partner, or at least very close. I want to be the type of creator that makes everyone feel welcome and relaxed. Luckily, I’ve found a very supportive community that I know will continue to encourage me.

8.) What advice would you give to the next new creator that you wish you were given?

Long streams on the path to affiliate will only make it harder. Also, play what brings you joy. Content comes to life when you love what you’re doing!

9.) Hot dog or glizzy?

 Hot dog, but I don’t eat them anyway lol

10.) Finally, if you were any animal, what would you be and why?

I would be a wolf. I like the idea of travelling and being in a group similar to me!

Interview with Premium Member: MissKalypso

1.) What is the one thing you love about your community? 

I love that my community is very supportive, no matter what I do it seems like I can always rely on them. My community is pretty much my family.

2.) How did you get into content creation/gaming?

I got into content creation whenever I first got my own Xbox back in 2018 and I’ve been playing video games though since I was about five years old. I have three older brothers who got me into gaming, and my current boyfriend got me to content creation by showing me Twitch and Mixer.

3.) What was the best video game and worst video game you have ever played? Why?

Best Video Game Ever? Celebrity Deathmatch, an OG classic on the OG Xbox. It was inappropriately funny.

Worst Game Ever? Unfortunate Spacemen, it’s basically a ripoff of Among Us but the people are extremely rude/toxic. 

4.) If you could collab with a community or influencer, who would it be?

If I could collab with one community or influencer it would probably be 100T or Valkyrae.

5.) Who inspired you to start creating content or continues to inspire you?

QueenEliminator and Simby are two of my biggest inspirations for female streamers, since I’ve watched them flourish into the wonderful big time creators they are. 

6.) What is something you want people to know about you?

I’m a very safe haven of a person. I’m always there for anyone and everyone to talk/vent. 

7.) We have gone 5 years into the future, what does your content look like?

In 5 years, I’ll be a Twitch partner up there with the big time streamers. 

8.) What advice would you give to the next new creator that you wish you were given?

BE YOURSELF and play what makes you happy ☺️

9.) Hot dog or glizzy?

Hot dog 🌭 lolol. I had to google glizzy!

10.) Finally, if you were any animal, what would you be and why?

If I could be any animal, it would be the Chinese panda. Why? Because they’re cute, they’re deadly, and they’re fluffy. They can be lazy, do whatever they want, and nobody judges them. Plus they’re my favorite animal.

Interview with Premium Member: VaughanFPS

1.) What is the one thing you love about your community?

I love that my community is close knit. Pretty much every one knows every one and they are more like family.

2.) How did you get into content creation/gaming?

I used to be a competitive PUBG player and was asked to become apart of a team and most of them streamed and convinced me to give it a go and I’ve been doing it for 2 and a half years now. 

3.) What was the best video game and worst video game you have ever played? Why?

Best game I’ve ever played is hands down Elder Scrolls Oblivion. It was the start if my RPG obsession. The worst game I’ve ever played is probably Call of Duty Cold War. The mechanics of that game just feel broken to me. 

4.) If you could collab with a community or influencer, who would it be?

Honestly I’d like to collab with any community that does charity work for needy children. I grew up in a very poor family and would love to give back more. 

5.) Who inspired you to start creating content or continues to inspire you?

I honestly almost gave up a few times over the years but MissKalypso who is a content creator and my best friend/sister has kept me going and always motivates me to be better. 

6.) What is something you want people to know about you?

I’m a father to a sweet little boy named Bennett. When I’m not taking care of him you can catch me working in motor cycles or gaming.

7.) We have gone 5 years into the future, what does your content look like?

Honestly I just like to have a good time and interact with my community and I dont think time will ever change that. 

8.) What advice would you give to the next new creator that you wish you were given?

Growth takes time so don’t be discouraged if your not seeing a ton of growth at first. 

9.) Hot dog or glizzy?

Hotdog hands down

10.) Finally, if you were any animal, what would you be and why?

I’d have to say wolf. They are a community/family based animal who are also very majestic. 

Interview with Premium Member: ThaHavocc

1.) What is the one thing you love about your community?

What I love about my community the most is how pure and helpful they are. People can come into my chat and talk about their whole day in peace with no judgement only help. My community is growing into something I been wanting since I picked up streaming.

2.) How did you get into content creation/gaming?

What got me into gaming was actually one of my childhood friends named Andrew. He bought me Modern Warfare on launch telling me if he bought me the game I must take the streaming world serious. I started off with a PS4, a TV and also my phone to read chat. Now I have 4 monitors and my second PC. I’ve invested so much into my career so far and I don’t plan on stopping anytime soon.

3.) What was the best video game and worst video game you have ever played? Why?

Best video game I ever played was Black Ops 2. I used to try to trickshot all the time and coming home to that main menu after school was the most satisfying thing in my childhood.

Worst game was NBA2K. The game has gone downhill ever since the end of 2k17. The servers are bad and always have huge latency. The game hasn’t been balanced in so long. Plus people use zens that let them greenlight everytime.

4.) If you could collab with a community or influencer, who would it be?

The one person I would collab with the most is MuTex. He is a big inspiration of mine from the start of my true grind. I watch his streams when he plays really serious then apply his IQ to mold my own playstyle. He hosted me a month or two ago and his community was really amazing. His whole community was surprised with my gameplay because I play cracked but I’m overlooked because of my KD.

5.) Who inspired you to start creating content or continues to inspire you?

My childhood friend Andrew inspired me to stream but Mutex is my biggest inspiration right now.

6.) What is something you want people to know about you?

I am the kindest and most supportive person ever. If you ever need anything you should never be afraid to ask me anything. Also I am a true grinder. I stream for a long time everyday, for the last 222 days.

7.) We have gone 5 years into the future, what does your content look like?

Variety Content all across the board. Funny moments, Reaction Videos, RPG GAMEPLAY. Of course FPS will be on there as well but I will be hitting the most insane shots in those FPS games.

8.) What advice would you give to the next new creator that you wish you were given?

Don’t self promote just look for someone new who fits your liking of streaming get to know them and their community so you can network the right way. Also don’t look at your viewer count. A lot of my beginning streams was 1 viewer for 8+ hours and I still never gave up.

9.) Hot dog or glizzy?

PAUSE

10.) Finally, if you were any animal, what would you be and why?

An owl, because that is the spirit animal of wisdom and that’s what I wish to acquire fully.

Interview with Premium Member: Big Dawg/CommanderGaming46

1.) What is the one thing you love about your community?

I love that my community are apart of the goal that I’m trying to reach as a streamer and make sure to give back to them back to say thank you for their support.
 

2.) How did you get into content creation/gaming?

I watch a lot of streamers play video games and I thought to myself I wonder if I could do that too so I just gave it a try and I thought I’d never get this far.
 

3.) What was the best video game and worst video game you have ever played? Why?

My favorite game is probably between Call of Duty Black Ops 1 and 2 because the games were so well both multiplayer campaign and zombies especially because I put so many hours into both games and I enjoyed every moment of it especially playing with my friends. The worst game I’d probably say Modern Warfare remastered because it reminded of the things I hated about that game and Call of Duty in general.
 

4.) If you could collab with a community or influencer, who would it be?

It would be TimTheTatMan because he’s literally my favorite streamer of all time.
 

5.) Who inspired you to start creating content or continues to inspire you?

TimTheTatMan the way he entertains his audience is really inspiring.
 

6.) What is something you want people to know about you?

That I’m just a black man who really enjoys playing video games and likes to share the experience with others and represent for my black community.
 

7.) We have gone 5 years into the future, what does your content look like?

Hopefully I’ll have 1 million followers on twitch and at least 10k subs between now and then.
 

8.) What advice would you give to the next new creator that you wish you were given?

Be yourself, do what you like to do the most to separate you from other content creators.
 

9.) Hot dog or glizzy?

Glizzy duh.
 

10.) Finally, if you were any animal, what would you be and why?

I would be a tiger because I have ambitions to reach my goal as a streamer.

Interview with Premium Member: NeckBeardJeb

1.) What is the one thing you love about your community?

I would say the diversity, it really is a place where a lot of different gamers come together. We have console, pc, and mobile gamers that share a large different array of interests. We have people that are cracked at different games and people that play games because it just gets them away from life.

 

2.) How did you get into content creation/gaming?

Well, I have been gaming ever since we had random games downloaded on floppy disks…. yeah, I know what those are. But I got into content creation because it seemed like a great way to meet other gamers from all over the world. I have always loved gaming, and I have always loved meeting new people and I figured why not give this a shot?

 

3.) What was the best video game and worst video game you have ever played? Why?

Looking back at it I think the best one I have played was Left 4 Dead 1&2. Shooting zombies, hitting them with bats and stuff, like what is not to like. Plus, it is a team game, but we all know there is always the one person just merking zombies left and right. Plus trying to get the Cr0wned achievement was a blast.

The worst one I played was Infinite Warfare, like COD tried way too hard in that game, plus I like more boots on the ground COD. I respect the chance they took but wow wee did that land flat on its face.

 

4.) If you could collab with a community or influencer, who would it be?

If this one counts, I would say Achievement Hunter.

 

5.) Who inspired you to start creating content or continues to inspire you?

I was inspired watching Achievement Hunter since 2011 and that is where I met a lot of my close friends in high school. I mostly watched Rage Quit videos since yeah, I felt it on a spiritual level. But now what inspires me are people that say they stop in the streams to get away and hangout, or whenever I see someone from when I was in Mixer comeback and we can relive those memories.

 

6.) What is something you want people to know about you?

I’m not mad, just salty. But in seriousness what I want people to know about me is that I honestly actually care about anyone that hops in my streams. If anyone is having a rough time, I want to be able to help, my dm’s are always open and that whatever is going down in life is always easier with people by your side.

 

7.) We have gone 5 years into the future, what does your content look like?

Hopefully the same, no matter what happens I hope I do not change who I am as a person, I have done enough of that in my life. Like I don’t care if I still haven’t hit 600 followers, or if I am sitting at 600k followers. I want to talk to chat, and I want to keep putting out content, with the occasional one tap.

 

8.) What advice would you give to the next new creator that you wish you were given?

It takes time, it takes a lot of heart too. Bet on yourself, you know you can succeed, show it.

 

9.) Hot dog or glizzy?

Uhhhh bratwurst? Ope sorry there, I’m from Wisconsin. Hot Dog.

 

10.) Finally, if you were any animal, what would you be and why?

Honey Badger because the Honey Badger don’t care. I see a goal I want to hit that goal even if it is too lofty for me. Plus they are small and light, so it is a little easier to carry me in Apex and Warzone (Shoutout Swili my guy’s back must hurt)

Interview with Premium Member: CupOfRobots

1.) What is the one thing you love about your community?

They seem to have poor judgment as some of them have been around since 2014. They are extremely welcoming and kind. I really don’t know what I did to deserve them.

2.) How did you get into content creation/gaming?

In 2013 I saw an ad for Extra Life and I’ve always loved helping those who can’t help themselves. I 2010 I attempted to launch a website that would host Halo LAN tournaments for charity but it sadly never came to fruition. Extra Life introduced me to Twitch and I saw KingGothalion and Professor Broman for the first time. I loved what they were doing and I decided to give it a try. I quickly realized that it was much harder than it looked. Especially back then. OBS required a computer science degree to operate.

3.) What was the best video game and worst video game you have ever played? Why?

This is a hard one mainly because I’m REALLY old. I have the fondest memories of Legend of Zelda on the NES. The whole family would watch my dad play as we made dungeon maps on graph paper. E.T. for Atari was pretty horrible. I think I still have that cart somewhere. But I think Smurfs for Colecovision made me want to scream at puppies the most of all.

4.) If you could collab with a community or influencer, who would it be?

Pixar

5.) Who inspired you to start creating content or continues to inspire you?

Extra Life got me started and the Wobblers (Goth and Broman) inspired me. Today it’s the younger creators who continue to innovate and change the way I think about content creation as whole.

6.) What is something you want people to know about you?

I’m not ALWAYS this sarcastic.

7.) We have gone 5 years into the future, what does your content look like?

Achieving peak value proposition. I want to give people something that they feel they need. Seeing people freak out the way a toddler does about a Disney Princess.

8.) What advice would you give to the next new creator that you wish you were given?

Perfection comes over time. I’ve wasted so much time obsessing over things that only I would have noticed in the first place.

9.) Hot dog or glizzy?

Hot dog! I had to Google Glizzy.

10.) Finally, if you were any animal, what would you be and why?

Piranhaconda because it’s my spirit animal.

Interview with AdrinaLynn

1.) How did you get into gaming? What was the very first game you played?
 
I would have to say my mom. She had a SEGA when I was young and I remember playing 
a few games on it before the age of 5.
 
2.) Would you say you’re a casual or competitive gamer? Have you always been this way?
Yes haha I can’t help it! I will never be toxic about it though, all in good fun and I know how 
not be sour when I lose.
 
3.) What are you most passionate about when it comes to your fans/community?
I still can’t wrap my head around the fact that I even have one! They are my light in a very
dark world. Everyone is so different and unique but love each other no different. My mods
are some of the very best, the community is protected to the fullest. I could not ask 
for more. 
 
4.) Who has inspired you in either a good way or as an example of what not to do?
So many people in so many ways, I can not just pick one but I will say do not be afraid
to ask for help and do not be afraid to take some constructive criticism. 
 
5.) In your opinion what is the best video game ever created? What is your favorite gaming system ever?
  
The best ever created? What’s with the tough questions?! haha My personal favorite 
will always and forever be the Pokemon series and the sims. They will never get old to me
and have endless possibilities. I turned my kindle fire into a giant Gameboy color and still
play the old school Pokemon games. 
 
6.) What game did you start and never finish, but wish you had? Why didn’t you finish it?
 
Fable 3! oh how I loved that game! I didn’t finish it because I ended up getting rid of my
Xbox 360, I can’t help that I will forever be a PlayStation fan.
 
7.) What are you most looking forward to after the pandemic is over?
 
Going outside again? Seeing family and friends! Travel without having to wear a mask
the whole flight? Wearing lip color again? haha so many things! I will say one thing I 
will forever be grateful for, if the pandemic didn’t happen then who knows if I would 
even be filling this survey out right now.
 
8.) Do you have any pre-game routines? Foods/drinks you always have when gaming?
 
I get up in the morning and have coffee, then go on a two mile walk. I always have coffee
during stream as well! I go on the same two mile walk after stream, it really helps me reflect on the day.
9.) What is 1 thing you wish people knew about you or should?
 

My socks never match! life is too short to be worrying about silly things like that!

 
10.) Final Question: If you could be any cartoon character, which and why?
 
Velma from Scooby Doo. I have always related to her. I was never the popular girl in school 
and I love to read. I wanted to be a writer when I was younger, owning a bookstore or
running a library has also been a dream of mine and who doesn’t love a good mystery? 😉
