AskTheGamers.com: What hobbies do you have outside of twitch?
PhaezXD: I’m more if a relax type of guy, would rather just find a place to chill and talk to friends with, doesn’t really matter where. Might involve playing pool, or just sitting at the beach with a bonfire going on.
AskTheGamers.com: What got you into gaming?
PhaezXD: I remember when I was 5, my parents gifted me and my brother a PS1, with two controllers, and the game S.C.A.R.S. Ever since then I’ve been gaming since, never been bored of it, and I don’t see myself stopping anytime soon haha.
AskTheGamers.com: How did you discover twitch?
PhaezXD: I discovered twitch back in 2014, I would watch Syndicate, Jeriicho and their crew all stream Mianite, their MineCraft series. I made my twitch back then and subbed as well. I would be awake at like 5AM just to watch them stream and then Syndicate would stream for hours more and it covered almost my entire morning.
AskTheGamers.com: Tell me how you chose your twitch name?
PhaezXD: “Phaez” was an old Gamertag name I used to use… 2014 was the year i made twitch, I’ve been changing my name around, hopefully I’ll find a name I can stay with permanently.
AskTheGamers.com: What are your thoughts on the destiny community?
PhaezXD: Destiny community is by far one of the best communities I’ve seen. I’ve been in other directories and the things I see in there, oh man it always makes me appreciate the community I decided to be apart of. Love the community.
AskTheGamers.com: what would you like to see in destiny 2?
AskTheGamers.com: what would you like to NOT see?
PhaezXD: Hmmm… I would like to see just more PvE content, I always put myself as a PvE first, than PvP player. Make some events more relevant with good rewards to keep us playing and grinding more. I love grinding games, I just hate when I grind and get nothing out of it in the end, so I also hope the loot drop system, in particular when it comes to perks, is just better. No need to have “Surrounded” or whatever on a hand cannon right? I’ve never seen anyone use it unless it’s the only weapon they have.
PhaezXD: Now what I don’t want to see? a diminishing skill gap in PvP. I would rather see myself get killed by players who are actually better than me rather than seeing someone just press L1 and get rewarded for it.
AskTheGamers.com: If you could change anything about twitch ,
how would you make it different?
PhaezXD: Honestly, Twitch staff has been doing awesome when it comes to updates with their website. I honestly don’t know what I would want or how to make it different. I’m happy with how it is at the moment.
AskTheGamers.com: What other content creators or twitch streamers and why?
PhaezXD: The first three that pop into my mind are Annialis, Luminosity, and TyphoonTrav. I’ve been watching these three for as long as I can remember, I’ve even watched all of them get partnered haha. These guys are amazing and I feel like they have never failed to keep me entertained and cheer me up on some bad days I have had. These guys have made me become a better individual not just on twitch but even outside of twitch and I love them with everything I have. Other streamer’s that I always watch are DodgeGG, HunterOwner, NYCityREP, Murdaro, these guys always have a entertaining or chill environment and I always find myself in there lurking or just chatting away.
PhaezXD: There are a lot of people I watch but to avoid an essay, I’m just going to stick with the Destiny streamers.
AskTheGamers.com: What is your favorite emote?
PhaezXD: This ones tough, I can’t just pick ONE emote haha. But the three subs that I know I cannot twitch without are Lumi’s, Trav’s and Deb’s. I would always find myself using a majority of their emotes all the time. Picking just one is pretty tough.
AskTheGamers.com: Going forward, what goals are you proud of having
accomplished with your time on twitch and what goals are yet to come?
PhaezXD: Well, I don’t really have any goals, I’m not a streamer. I rarely ever stream, I think I’ve only streamed like 4 times in total? I’ve always come to Twitch as a place to just chill, watch streams and chat to people. I’m just proud that I’ve got my own little family here on Twitch filled with very close friends who I can even call my second family.
AskTheGamers.com: As we close the interview out id like to ask you,
what advice would you like to give to any new streamers just
starting out or even streamers who have been working at this
for a while now?
PhaezXD: Always keep a consistent schedule, be yourself, and always remember it is OKAY to take a day off streaming if you’re not feeling yourself, or if you’re not feeling well. Your viewers will always understand. Don’t rely on hosts, it’s great to help you get exposed but it’s not great if you begin relying on them all the time, and don’t pay attention to what other streams are doing, or where they are in terms of growth, focus on yourself, concentrate on how you can improve your stream to provide the best entertainment you can for your viewers, because in the end, us viewers don’t care about anyone else but you and your stream.
