i see it a bit like arts in general. like musik, painting or acting. if you're a celebrity, you're well off. but it's extremely hard to make a living, if you're less than that.
You are stuck in the past Hun, they were lauded as such when there was no money to be made gaming... Now games like Fortnite offer 7/8 figure prize pools, people make millions selling ingame skins... 🥴 KSI, Ninja PewDiePie became household names but nothings changed? 😂
@r0ddy ROFL. I don't associate with losers that play video games as they've no lives.
Calling people losers and no lifes at 33, is someone projecting?
By that logic acting, musicianship, theater, etc are all not jobs, right? Lol
@Shiver musicians have skills to play those instruments and sing. Acting isn't really a skill. Anyone can pretend to be someone
Aight, so that shows that you have no idea what you're talking about here. If acting was that easy, do you really think it would be such a high paying job? There's a lot more that goes into it than just "pretend to be someone". That's just ignorant.Musicians have it easier than streamers in that we don't have to juggle 5 or more tasks all at once. Most we have to do at once is play well and keep moving to stay entertaining. In between songs we only have to talk and be entertaining sometimes. What makes a musician's job hard has nothing to do with their skill at playing an instrument. A streamer needs to be able to play the game well, interact with the audience, keep an eye on new follows, tips and subs, give entertaining commentary, make sure to not say no-no words that wouldn't be no-no words outside of Twitch and potentially more all at the same time as well as stream for hours on end consistently. Just because you're not familiar with the skill set, doesn't mean there's no skill involved.
@Shiver you asked a question and i spoke my piece. I said what i said and i meant it too. We can agree to disagree. But its just not a what i consider a career. If you make bank from it, good for you. But im speaking off of what i saw with my exes
I'm guessing your ex wasn't good at it right?It surely is a risky career as you have to be in the top 1% of the game or have a very unique angle to it. That being said it's a high risk high reward field like a few others, making it is very hard but if you do, it's an insanely good career path.But very few do reach that level.
@AdithyaR he was horrible at it. I was his same 7 views for like a year 😂 he pissed me off because he dropped out of college and wasted our apartment savings. He was just being dumb. I tried to support him when it was just a hobby. Bt he went too far trying to turn it into a career when he knew he wasn't ready
Totally understandable, after a while year if he still had seven views he should have seen he's not ready, especially not drop out from college for it.He'd have to have a decent viewership of over a few hundred thousand to get a good track. Maybe he just didn't stand out.
@AdithyaR he wasn't being himself in my opinion. He was quiet most of the game and other times he just would go on a cussing rant. It wasn't entertaining. He didn't know how to edit videos well and stuff. He wouldn't allow me to help him. But he’d game 6 hours Straight and it drove me nuts
Yeah that wouldn't work at all. I know he would have felt though, not wanting to accept that a certain field isn't for you. I had to go through something similar.
@AdithyaR he left engineering for it. Smh
My experience was the exact opposite, tried to get myself into a science field and go into astrophysics but eventually had to accept I wasn't cut out for it and chose to study English instead and I way more happy now.
@AdithyaR im glad you found whats best for you. I regret majoring in Business. I hate finance and accounting. I wouldve preferred journalism or English so that i could do something editorial or even become a copywriter for commercial jingles
You should totally try that out. Journalism is a very interesting field. It's part of my triple major and it's s good subject.
@AdithyaR yea i was in college 2013-2017. Major waste of an assoc/bach. I have no intentions of returning to college unless its a trade school. I wanna get into carpentry
Well I hope you find what makes you happy 😁
@Shiver acting, musicians, etc. generally require some talent. Twitch as long as you can speak properly and read anyone can do it. It's not a "job" and it doesn't require any real talent
@SomeBlondeChick even to be a good twitch streamer you need the skill of being exceptionally good at video games, which not everyone can do.
@AdithyaR video games are hardly difficult. Takes a bit of brain power
To play for leisure surely but not to be a popular streamer. You need to be constantly in the top 1% of the game, be up-to-date with everything that happens in the game. It's not easy.We shouldn't be downplaying their work.
Plus you can't say it's not a job as people do earn well from it. Anything you can earn from is a job.
@DizzyDesii Yeah I'm pretty much just trolling. Lmao
It’s possible but rare
Welcome back lol
