    I could really do with a good squad if anyone has the patience for a beginner please. Most of the time with randoms everyone runs off in different directions with no strategy and we get picked off 1 by 1 easily when against 3

    *Edit, just tried running off by myself, took out a squad with a shotty :D

    So many easy mistakes could be avoided if I got to play with the abilities beforehand. I think it would be a good onboarding tool.

    Yeah and I am saying those mistakes are meaningless, it takes no time to get a game, who cares if you have to die once to learn how the hero works....
    This might be again me generally not giving a fuck about the result and more look for the enjoyment of playing the game rather than only enjoying the final result.

    Aspire to be as good as Shroud. Settle for being a God.

    The thing I like about shroud is he is great an explaining things, like he will give you detailed explanations about his decisions sometimes. If i am watching a streamer for actual entertainment its more likely going to be an aussie streamer, their humour appeals to me more, and I have found are more interactive with the audience, and have also found you don't get stuck in conversations about guns....

    The most amazing thing about him, aside from his aim, is his movement speed. The way he jumps/slide/sprint and seems to run and react so fast. It's really impressive.

    Have I ever told you that time in PUBG when I....

    Shroud is fine. VISS isn't anywhere near as good. They are all mostly shit to watch personality wise though, big kids that haven't had the life beaten out of them with a decade of actual soul sucking work. They are really missing out.

    Yeah sounds like you need to have a candid chat with someone who has been streaming for years if you think its all rainbows and butterflies mate.

    Peacekeeper needs some work, way to random. And yes I get that it's a shotgun and they aren't 100% accurate/consistent.

    Plenty of examples in my own game play but the best was watching a mate take a shot into someone's back from half a metre away and do 10 damage. He was close enough for a melee attack to hit yet the peacekeeper did 10 damage to white armour.

    No doubt they put the hours in. But they are literally sitting on a PC playing computer games and chatting to kids, creepers and trolls all day, trying to achieve some sort of celebrity.

    I don't know there is any delusion here?

    And for the first few years of streaming when you have fuck all viewers and are building your audience base, what you doing for money then?
    It is not as simple as "this dude gets paid to play video games". Its not like the guy with 10 subs is paying his rent with that 25 bucks....

    I have had the thought, not as a job replacement but just as something to do after work when I play games anyway. Then decided it's a lot of effort to go to and could take the enjoyment away
