    I've been streaming for 9 months now I start streaming for the first 4 months to absolutely no one, so when I got that first real regular, it was divine. Then the second, then the third and fourth, pretty soon I was getting 6-7 viewers every single stream, , after about 7 months.
    some of my advice. Treat every single stream as your first stream. Today you're gonna have 0 viewers. Accept it. you don't have viewers. That means you got more time to talk to anyone who comes in. Remember that there is a split between game-play and streamer that creates the formula of what makes a good stream. It cannot be 100% game-play, with no streamer interaction and hope to grow. It can be 100% streamer though. That just reinforces that original statement, you are literally part, or all, of what people come to watch. If people wanted to watch other people be fake, they'd be watching cable instead of Twitch.tv, Youtube Gaming Or Facebook Gaming, so know that this process you're in will be a defining factor in who you turn out to be as an entertainer.

    I'm so excited to meet & play with people from this amazing community.

    Peace out

    @Hacktivist HEY

    An official welcome to the community!

    I love how you had to specify "yes the country, not the direction" 😂

    I love CS:GO too! I can't wait to play it with you and be on your team so I don't end up losing all the time haha.

    Why do you prefer DUST 2 over other maps? My favorite is Italy 😁

    @Tamara Dust 2 is what made CS CS! For those who dont know it was created 20 years ago this March. Its what built competitive CS. The first real competitive need for "strats and calls" were built on this map. Yes much as changed since the original release...but im still obsessed. As the new generation move forward with the new maps im kinda stuck in the old school. Yeah Italy was the FFA server of note back in the day. Here in SA the official servers seem to hold the most demand. Mirage, Inferno, Overpass are the most played (from what i see) Any hoooooo you must let me know we can jam a session! im online most of the evening roaming the MM Lobbies! ciao ciao !

    Hi everyone,

    Another ancient gamer signing up....(I'm 45).
    I'm former FPS fanatic - from the days of old (Wolfenstein, spear of destiny, doom, quake, UT & UC, Mechwarrior 1-4, a bit of rainbow 6)...

    Now, I play mostly RPGs actively (Neverwinter, B&S)...still play ARMA 3, Warface and Modern Combat Versus so as not to forget how to "ride that particular horse"...trying to pass off gaming to my daughters as well.

    Never quite got into CS when I should have...to my regret, though I'm hoping to rectify that now.

    I draw and write (fantasy) for fun...

    I'm from Nigeria.

    The performance isn't quite the same as a proper rig, but laptops work out for people who can't afford rigs and/or don't have the space for a rig...plus, portability - you cant take a rig on a plane.
