It seems most streamers that have little to no player base get a huge spike if they come into a very hyped game with a alpha or beta key and stream it well. Who here in the first 1000 players in, is hoping to make there streaming "Dream/hobby" come true. I know if I was one of the first 1000 players to get in. I would have a dream come true. But, I will be coming in when captains are let in. So, best of luck to those who are able to get that kick start and keep the people happy.

For me, getting to stream HEX early is a way for me to share HEX with my friends and the gaming community at large. But, don't worry about not being the first of the first: a great and entertaining new streamer will grow a following no matter when they start.

This is a discussion regarding streamers and having a head-start due to Alpha invite order.

Please do not post here just to link to your stream. There are already places for you to do so.

Thanks.

On a side-note, I agree with hacky, a good streamer will earn a following regardless of when they start. :)

There are a lot of people who will be streaming and a lot of them have little streaming experience(thus followers). A lot will be streaming because it's a new game that will be receiving a lot of hype and thus potential viewers. Many will probably not stream for long as the higher view count streams eat the viewers. It's hard work growing an audience. I find it fun nonetheless interacting with the viewers. Slowly you should find a following, I just hope people stick to it when the viewers don't magically flock to them.

What makes a good streamer?

I tried to have my dream come true during the hearthstone beta when I got in in the first wave, we had steadily increasing numbers, and then just BAM as more people got in, I had less and less people watching, now thye're all gone :(

Interaction with viewers and just being entertaining. I've got a meager following, but it mostly comes from the fact I interact with and am quite friendly to everyone who comes by. If you get a core group of viewers yo should grow over time.

Life is too short to watch streams. Get your own experiences. ;).

Well, here's a tip from CZE themselves:


Streamers can skip a lot of headaches if they prioritize putting on an entertaining stream as opposed to playing correctly.

Well, here's a tip from CZE themselves:

Ugh and here I thought it was the reverse!

I use to watch A LOT of SC2 streams back when I got serious into, the last thing I wanted to do was watch someone that played worse than I did but made jokes the entire time >_>

All the good koreans just sat there focused, not saying a word. Those are the guys that had a good following...I guess it's the reverse for TCG's?

I think doing both will net you the most ;o... I would rather watch a dud rockstar than an entertaining misplay.

Well yeah, who wouldn't want to use this opportunity to get more viewers? I think that if people enjoy your stream, they'll stick around. When I stream magic, there are a lot of other people they could watch, but decide to stick around for my stream (at the very least) because they enjoy my play and discussions.

You have to have a name already to make that work usually.
