So, it’s that time again where I feel different to streaming. And I know I have made a post like this but I know how I really feel towards streaming as a whole. So, let me start off.
I think it begins, just with me feeling burned out from doing livestreams in general, and doing too many games, to a point where I don’t know what to stream or not stream at all. This is daily feeling. I have myself to blame for.
And another reason is that, I have no one to entertain anymore, and that was my real reason to stream in the first place.
Coming from YouTube to Twitch to “Entertain” live chat was fun. Twitch, at one point used to be booming with viewers who would come watch you play whatever.
But the times are changing or have changed, small channels like me, have a chance of growing a active fanbase or turn to a dying channel. My Twitch channel is pretty dead.
I want to be clear. I am not saying this to blame anyone or guilt trip anyone, my channel was dead from the get go. it’s not a matter of if but when my channel dies. And the time is now or last 2 years. Unless I stream the new hot game or the top game on twitch.
And the other reason is, I’m not happy with streaming anymore. Besides being burned out.
I have not been enjoying streaming and worrying if my net is gonna crap out, and kill my mood. I used to stream everything, now I have nothing I want to stream. Hell, I don’t even want to stream anymore.
I could upload videos to Twitch, but I will pass. Not fond on how the video feature works around here.
I will go back to making Let’s plays and videos on youtube, as I have enjoy that way more. Streaming is fine, and if you know what you are doing and have the internet for it, you can make it on Twitch or any streaming site
And for my Twitch channel, what does this mean? Well. In simple terms. It is now in limbo now. Doing streams on my channel, will be the last thing on my mind and might not happen.
But I will pop by in streams to support my friends when I can, by watching, chatting or giving bits.
This also means I don’t have to worry about not streaming on time or being late to stream.
I can just do things at my own pace, if you will. No more worrying about that or being stressed out by that.
Now I hear you. Just take a break and then, come back to stream when you are ready. That’s a good idea but..
That never works, as I seem to fall back into the same loop. I am taking a Hiatus. Though, that may as well be a infinite one.
Another reason, is me. I am a bad streamer. I don’t have any kind of streaming personality that others have.
Rather that is good or bad is up to you. My voice is deep, and my accent is heavy. I trip over my words a lot.
I want to be a entertainer, but I can dream, eh? I can’t force others to watch me, cause I don’t want that. I want people to watch me cause they want to. But I hit my peak on Twitch, my prime has long since pass, and diminishing returns seems to be a thing.
Another reason is, I want to stream all these games but I bit off more then I can chew while racing with friends.
It’s fun but I don’t get things done but trying to do 2 big games can take a toll on you after a while. That’s my bad. But I do that sometimes
I guess what I am saying is that, this gives me time to get back to learn coding, and do other things :3
I did want to beat P5 and BOTW master mode on switch, but if I am not enjoying streaming, then, what is the point?
To add a spin on Reggie’s quote. “Streaming is fun. Streaming is a battle. If it is not fun, why bother?”
kept this to myself and wanted to make sure if this was a fleeting feeling that would pass or not. But it did not pass..
If I do stream, it will be a blue moon. Again, streaming will be the last thing on my mind.
Update: I have quit streaming*
With that said, games on hiatus as well: Persona 5, BOTW (May be subject to be cancelled)
Who knows what the future holds but I know my fate with streaming.
