TWITCH - Anybody else stream?

So on top of my YouTube channel I have decided to stream on Twitch.

Been streaming pretty much every evening recently, its great fun. I play Apex Legends with 2 friends, and we have a laugh on chat! Playing Apex Legends as a new streamer = nobody ever see's my channel as there are thousands of other bigger channels streaming that game already so my channel is literally at the bottom of the list lol!

Still, its good fun!

Wanted to ask if anyone else has been streaming? Any tips or advice for someone new to the platform?

I think my stream is good quality, its 1080P at 60FPS and at a high bitrate, so it looks good. And I finally figured out the overlays etc!

Any advice etc is appreciated :)

My Twitch in case you're interested is at this link: DeeKay86 Twitch Link!

No. Never used Twitch or watched other people play games. Can't see the point to be honest.

I don't get a great deal of time to play games anymore, why would I spend that time watching someone else play?

I know some people make good money out of it. They are usually good looking girls appealing to 13 year old virgin's though who haven't seen a pair of legs in hot pants.

I love this attitude.

I take it you don't watch any sort of sports/motorsport on TV? I mean, why watch professionals do it, when you can do it yourself.

Yes, I watch sports on TV, again, when I get the time. I don't play football because I'm s**t so I watch professionals play. I ride my mountain bike and I'm half decent, I still watch pro's ride though in the world cup etc. I'd much rather be out on my bike than watching someone else ride though.

It's all about prioritising time for me. If I've got an hour spare, it won't be used watching someone else play a game that I could be playing myself.

I'd wager 99% of live streaming of games are done by people in bedroom's.

Edit. This is no dig at DeeKay at all. I just don't see the appeal of it. If he makes money off it alongside his YouTube then fair play to him.

Because F1 is a mature sport and a super licence is out of your reach but watching someone play fifa because you're w**k is an absolute waste of time..

watching people play is only for 30 year old virgin fools who do shitty fortnite dances in their spare time

Go play one of those kids if beating them is within your reach.

I don't watch people game, apart from the occasional f**k-up highlight on reddit or whatever but your comment is just ignorant.

Whoa whoa whoa was not expecting some of the responses on here lol!! Blady hell lads calm down!!

I stream on Twitch because I enjoy it. Having that social aspect with people in chat on top of talking to my friends in game is just 'fun'. I don't see myself making money from this, I'm just enjoying it for what it is. If it turns in to something that I can monetise, then great, otherwise I'll carry on enjoying it.

Glad a couple of you understand though lol.

For those who said its basically for sad virgins etc - each to their own. I watch people play games on Twitch on occasion and I am far from being a 30 year old Virgin. In fact, I am 32 years old, engaged and 100% NOT a Virgin lol!

Just play what you want to play and have fun. There are so many people that do it now, I think becoming "big" is basically just down to pure luck, so I wouldn't even worry about it. Engage with your chat, be interesting and have interesting things to say.

I barely use twitch any more but I used to watch a guy who did Dark Souls 3 / Bloodborne zero hit runs which was cool, he was always super engaged with his chat and had pretty interesting conversations.

I don't - but I think it's more of a generational thing than anything else. I'd hazard a guess that the demographics of those that watch gaming streams are much younger than me approaching my mid-40s.

The only time I do is if I'm genuinely stuck on stage in a game where I need some guidance to get me past my own n00bishness. Invariably, that will be YouTube though and not an actual stream on the likes of Twitch.

I have gone on Twitch - but only for in-game bonuses for Warframe. Literally logged in, started watching some bloke and minimised it in the background.
 
I go on it from time to time to watch the pro's play.

From having a brows you have to be really good at the game/entertaining or show cleavage.

Engage with the chat as people seem to love hearing there name read out, best of luck and ill give you a follow.

I don't disagree there either - but I do find it amusing that people insult others for watching something on twitch when in all likelyhood they spend two hours watching some overpaid tarts kick a pigskin around on some grass on the TV...

I think you would be surprised how old the audience is depending on the game, the gaming community is going to get older and older imo

Honestly, the people I do know have loads of people in their 40's/50/60's watching.
