My interview with PhaezXD of twitch.tv/phaezxd

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.

My interview with Murdaro of twitch.tv/Murdaro

AskTheGamers.com: What hobbies do you have outside of streaming?

Murdaro: I enjoy weightlifting, playing basketball eating and learning new things. For some reason, I’m really into politics, world news and history.

AskTheGamers.com: What got you into gaming?

Murdaro: As a child, my parents were always busy with school and work. So my friends and I would play outside a lot but when it would rain, we would play our games and eventually just became a hobby I loved to do. Been gaming since I was about the age of four or five

AskTheGamers.com: How did you discover twitch?

Murdaro: I knew of Justin.tv around 2008/2009 but got back into twitch around 2012 for watching pros during Halo: Reach and then in 2015 when my friends told they streamed.

AskTheGamers.com: Tell me how you chose your twitch name?

Murdaro: It came from my username “Murdaro”. I made the name “Murdaro” up in 2012. It came from my old alias “Murda” and “Aro”. It’s two words combined to make Murdaro.

AskTheGamers.com: What are your thoughts on the destiny community?

Murdaro: I’ve been apart of many communities, I can easily say that the Destiny community is the best community, hands down.

AskTheGamers.com: Tell me a little bit about your community on twitch and the people in it.

Murdaro: Amazing people. Everyone loves to joke around, chill and learn what they can from the gameplay. 🙂

AskTheGamers.com: what would you like to see in destiny 2?
what would you like to NOT see?

Murdaro: I would like to see ranked play in Destiny 2.

Murdaro: This is a hard one, I’m a really easy-going person when it comes to things. But I guess what I would not like to see when things lower the skill-gap or accomplishment of something. Like cheesing a raid or using stickies in PvP for easy kills.

AskTheGamers.com: If you could change anything about twitch ,
how would you make it different?

Murdaro: Twitch is an ever growing platform making great updates constantly. There’s nothing that comes to mind at this moment that I’d change or update.

AskTheGamers.com: What other content creators or twitch streamers inspire you if any?

Murdaro: Other Twitch streamers that inspire me are Nickmercs, Harbleu and PokeLawls. They all play at a high level while sharing laughs, jokes and just being themselves. I also feel like I relate to them all in a way which makes me like them even more.

AskTheGamers.com: Going forward, what goals are you proud of having
accomplished with your stream and what goals are yet to come?

Murdaro: I’m proud that I got to the point I got to. I never thought about being a streamer or even attempting that passion without the push that I got. I got very lucky. I hope to grow big enough to maybe make this into a career. I love gaming way too much.

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?

Murdaro: Consistency, connecting and continuously making things interesting. You’ll grow if you put the effort in. Good luck to everyone. 🙂

My interview with Sarah Daniels of twitch.tv/imsarahdaniels

AskTheGamers.com: What hobbies do you have outside of streaming?

ImSarahDaniels: This is a great question that I don’t often get asked! I love to be outside, going for long walks or hikes, fishing, really anything that involves an outdoor adventure! But I’m allergic to ants, so my outdoorsy adventures can’t be TOO crazy! And eating. I love eating.

AskTheGamers.com What got you into gaming?

ImSarahDaniels: My sister and I had a Sega Genesis and a SNES growing up, and I was obsessed with Super Mario RPG, Link to the Past, all the Sonic games, and Toejam and Earl. Then, when Playstation came out, my sister played Final Fantasy VII at a friend’s house and my parents caved and got us a Playstation. That Halloween, as an 8 year old, I made an Aeris costume. I’ve been hooked ever since.


AskTheGamers.com: How did you discover twitch?

ImSarahDaniels: I had heard about it in passing, but it wasn’t until my friend Chris (ChrisSpeaketh on Twitch) literally forced me to sign up. He saw my Zelda wallet at a rehearsal for a show we were doing and was like “WAIT, do you stream?” He signed me up then and there and thus began this journey!

AskTheGamers.com: Tell me how you chose your twitch name?

ImSarahDaniels: Well, my name is Sarah Daniels and SarahDaniels was taken, so there you have it!

AskTheGamers.com: Tell me a little bit about your community on twitch and
the people in it.

ImSarahDaniels: Our community is incredible. They are called the DamnDanielsFam and they’ve all changed my life. I have this unreal group of supportive and positive people that tune in almost every night to hang out with me. We are all about helping each other. I do mostly PvE content and raid help and they are always there to help if I can’t be around or help someone. Everyone is just so kind and so supportive of one another, it blows me away every day!

AskTheGamers.com: what would you like to see in destiny 2?

ImSarahDaniels: More PvE content! Which I think is coming, after attending the reveal and seeing the part about Lost Sectors and Adventures I about lost my mind. I’m so excited to explore the new open world feel of Destiny 2. AND MORE RAIDS!!

AskTheGamers.com:  what would you like to NOT see?

ImSarahDaniels: There’s really nothing I don’t want to see to be honest, but in PvP I would love if the meta wasn’t so intense. I feel like now if I don’t have a God roll hand cannon or an Icebreaker I can’t be successful. Not that my PvP opinion really matters, because let’s face it, I am a PvE Princess that is complete garbage in PvP. Maybe that’ll change in Destiny 2. ;]

AskTheGamers.com: If you could change anything about twitch ,
how would you make it different?

ImSarahDaniels: Twitch is an incredible platform that has brought me the best year of my life. There isn’t anything I would change EXCEPT more protection for streamers, specifically females. I just wish there was an algorithm to catch all the horrific comments and usernames, but they do the best they can.

AskTheGamers.com: What other content creators or twitch streamers inspire you if any?

ImSarahDaniels: Too many to list. Gothalion, Datto, Lumi, LaB, SheSnaps, these cats have amazing communities and have been so kind to me, some of them since day one, and their support has meant so much. I want to be them when I grow up!

AskTheGamers.com: Going forward, what goals are you proud of having
accomplished with your stream and what goals are yet to come?

ImSarahDaniels: Getting invited to the Destiny 2 World Premiere was the best day of my life. I am reapplying for partner and hoping that is reached soon, our community has been growing like crazy and I hope Twitch recognizes our hard work soon! This week I am the Destiny Community Focus on https://www.bungie.net/en/News/Article/45942/7_Community-Focus—SarahDaniels , so check that article out!

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?

ImSarahDaniels: I would say stay positive and stay consistent. I’ve had my rough times streaming, but at the end of the day, I remember I’m the glue in this wonderful community they’ve built and they are there for me as much, if not more than I’m there for them. One viewer or 500 viewers, every single person matters. Never discount any of your hard work. Chin up, and keep moving forward!

My interview with HeyFitzy of twitch.tv/HeyFitzy

AskTheGamers.com Q: What hobbies do you have outside of streaming?

HeyFitzy: Outside of streaming I like to do a lot of sports card trading. I know, sports cards, odd right? Well, when I was
a kid I always liked opening packs of baseball, hockey and basketball cards. The past 5 years my baseball and hockey
card collection quickly started growing, like, it got a bit out of hand. Pretty much to the point where the spare
room became a storage room for it. My rarest card I have in my collection is a Babe Ruth Baseball Bat Relic Card. It
is just a simple card really with 6 pieces of his bat, sealed in a card and only 25 of them are made.
I’ll probably never get rid of it. Ever.

AskTheGamers.com Q: What got you into gaming?

HeyFitzy: Well, I was also into gaming. My childhood I was always around a video game system. Atari(holy crap I’m old), Nintendo,
Super Nintendo, Nintendo 64, GameCube, XBOX. It was basically easy entertainment I suppose, and my parents would never have to worry about me being a little hellion. I didn’t really get “heavily” into gaming until Halo and Halo 2. I
even did a few MLG Events back in the Halo 2 days, before realizing, my skills were not the best and I should just take gaming casually. My
blood pressure has been thanking me since that decision.

AskTheGamers.com Q: How did you discover twitch?

HeyFitzy: I discovered Twitch when Destiny was about to release. I was one of first couple thousand members at the time on the Destiny Reddit
and I always saw people talk about streaming and Twitch. So I decided to check it out when Destiny came out. Best decision ever made.

AskTheGamers.com Q: Tell me how you chose your twitch name?

HeyFitzy: My Twitch name, HeyFitzy? Hey, Fitzy. Hey, HeyFitzy. Hey, it’s HeyFitzy. Catchy and funny right? I thought so. Fitz or Fitzy is my actual nickname and
the “hey” part comes from the Halo 2 days. One night I was having an all night FFA in Halo 2 with friends, and everyone kept stealing my kills
then killing me. Once I finally got my first kill, my friend said “hey, fitzy got a kill!” From then, it stuck, I even changed my Xbox GT to HeyFitzy.
So in the kill feed you would see “HeyFitzy killed….” or “X player killed HeyFitzy.” It was just something catchy and funny and it has been stuck with
me for the past 17 years.

AskTheGamers.com Q: What are your thoughts on the Destiny community?

HeyFitzy: The Destiny Community is something very special and means a lot to me. We are very lucky in this day in age to have a very well respected Community in gaming. Because there are
some people out there that think negatively about Gaming Communities. Sure we may have bad apples here and there, BUT, there are a lot of genuine people in our Community.
Yes, OUR, Community. Everyone in my eyes, we are all the same. We all have the common love for a wonderful game that Bungie created. Some have made many friendships,
some have even met their boyfriend/girlfriend, some have met their soulmates. All because of one game made by one company. It’s pretty awesome to be apart of this Community.
I’ve been involved with Bungie Communities for 17 years now, and I got to say, this Community is without a doubt the best one I’ve seen and been in.
Ever since I did the whole Iron Banner Data Testing, I’ve met so many people in this Community and have become friends with everyone I’ve come across. It’s truly a blessing to be
in the Destiny Community. I’ll close by saying this : Treat people how you want to be treated.


AskTheGamers.com Q: Tell me a little bit about your community on twitch and
the people in it.

HeyFitzy: Well my Community on Twitch is small right now. It’s mostly my friends who I have known for about 2 years now, friends who are new and my clan members. I like to
have a nice chill atmosphere when people are in my stream. Less salt, more bantz.

AskTheGamers.com Q: What would you like to see in destiny 2?
What would you like to NOT see?

HeyFitzy: What I would like to see in Destiny 2 is just a better overall experience for PvE Players. As someone who is mostly PvE focused (PvEople’s Champ, sorry Datto), I
want to see Patrol be something worth doing. Patrol is the ONLY thing I have very high expectations for going forward. I want to be able to kill World Bosses for
loot that means something. It’d be nice to see Destiny 2 sorta make their “Open World” a bit more, OPEN WORLD. I want to explore
and explore and get lost in the Wild and shoot any enemy that gets in my way.

What I would like to NOT see in Destiny 2 is Hive and Taken. Literally, that’s it. Please.

AskTheGamers.com Q: If you could change anything about twitch ,
how would you make it different?

HeyFitzy: Two Words: Cumulative Subs.

AskTheGamers.com Q: What other content creators or twitch streamers inspire you if any?

HeyFitzy: I’m a bit bias so they are going to be Destiny related, no particular order: Datto, tripleWRECK, Gothalion, ProfessorBroman, Teawrex, ms5000watts,
Holtzmann, TrueVanguard, Byf, Charionna. I’ve always liked and respected how they work and handle themselves on a daily basis. They all have Communities that make you feel
welcome once you enter. They don’t treat you any different, they treat you like everyone else. You have to admire and respect that.


AskTheGamers.com Q: Going forward, what goals are you proud of having
accomplished with your stream and what goals are yet to come?

HeyFitzy: I think if I can just provide good entertainment, make people laugh, make people feel welcome, and give them a place to just chill, I’m happy. Obviously everyone wants to
get that Sub Button, it takes a lot of hard work to get that. I’ll definitely be going for it, but for now, baby steps and just take it a day at a time and enjoy what you do.

AskTheGamers.com Q: 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?

HeyFitzy: Advice to new streamers: Be you and don’t get frustrated. Never. Give. Up.
Advice to current streamers: Be you, concentrate on you, not others. It can be easy to get upset and want to just stop, but you’ve already won the biggest battle
and that is just simply beginning the stream when others don’t want to do. Never. Give. Up.

My interview with LokiMCR of twitch.tv/LokiMCR

AskTheGamers.com Q: What hobbies do you have outside of streaming?

LokiMCR: Outside of gaming my hobbies include drawing, painting and reading. In school I spent most of my time alone and used drawing as a way to pass time. Now that I think of it I don’t think I even noticed that I had a talent when it came to drawing. It was just something that I did and people praised me for it in school. When I started high school I started hating on painting/drawing when a deadline was due. It would completely stress me out since I’m my harshest critic. I’m a huge perfectionist when it comes to drawing, if something does go how I want it to I would give up and eventually get back to it at a different perspective. Now I rarely draw on paper and recently picked up drawing digitally. It’s a completely different feel from drawing on paper, obviously heh. But my perfectionist side still follows me to the digital canvas. In a way it helps me get better at things I love to do.

AskTheGamers.com Q: What got you into gaming?

LokiMCR: I’m a very picky player. I get bored really fast when it came to games. When I was younger I didn’t play much. All I had was a gameboy with very few games. I eventually got a PS3 and even then I wasn’t very much into it. It wasn’t until Little Big Planet came out where I started meeting people online. I liked the connection of meeting people and playing with them on the games we liked to play. From LBP I went to Call of duty black ops Zombies. I grinded that game so hard because I wanted to get better and reach my friend’s level. Zombies was all I every touched cause I was too scared to try out multiplayer. I went out on a limb and bought Destiny and I had fun playing the story missions. I was so new to it I had no idea what I was doing. I didn’t even realize it had fire teams and such. There was a mission back in year one where it wanted me to do crucible and I was horrified when I realized it was a player vs player game mode. I quit the game for 2 months because I had this mentality where if I did bad I would be recognized for letting the team down and get yelled at like COD. Eventually I went back and and decided to keep trying like I did with COD zombies. I’m really glad I didn’t completely quit the game.

AskTheGamers.com Q: How did you discover twitch?

LokiMCR: When I first got my PS4 I discovered the streaming option. I started streaming to let my boyfriend, who lives in England, watch me play. I got more into twitch when I met my current clan members, Donuthole Gaming, where they are supportive of twitch streamers. That’s how I found people like DodgeGG, TheGeekChic, etc.

AskTheGamers.com Q: Tell me how you chose your twitch name?

LokiMCR: Picking my twitch name goes back to when I picked my PSN. I made my PSN back when the Thor movie came out. I was a huge fangirl for Loki. As for the MCR part, it stands for My Chemical Romance, a band that I heavily listened to at the time.

AskTheGamers.com Q: What are your thoughts on the Destiny community.

LokiMCR: My thoughts on the destiny community is that there are tons of wonderful people. People who like helping others and people who just want to have fun. Its one of the main reasons why I continue to play the game. Yeah there are some people who may ruin the fun but that doesn’t stop me from wanting to get on and play with friends.

AskTheGamers.com Q: Tell me a little bit about your community on twitch and
the people in it.

LokiMCR: My community on twitch is pretty small. It includes friends from BongSquadKittens and Donuthole Gaming. Captain_Llera or Captain, mainly looks to help people on raids even if its their first time. He’s pretty patient and looks to do raids majority of the time. He’s also my partner when it comes to playing crucible. The guys from BongSquadKittens are people who I want to become in terms of getting better at crucible and giving back to the community. They’re too kind and even when they help me out I feel like saying thank you isn’t enough. Playing with them never makes the game boring.

AskTheGamers.com Q: what would you like to see in destiny 2?
what would you like to NOT see?

LokiMCR: What I would like to see in Destiny 2 is more of a community thing rather than an in game. I’m pretty excited that Bungie has included a “LFG” option in Destiny 2 for players who play solo. Its a way to meet new people and potentially long term friends. And in special occasions, people find their soulmate. What I would really hate to see is the community to fall apart. It’s what keeps me going, pretty cheesy but its the truth.

AskTheGamers.com Q: If you could change anything about twitch ,
how would you make it different?

LokiMCR: Twitch does a pretty good job on giving off this vibe where the streamer and viewers can connect with each other. With the Affiliation program, twitch provided a way for small streamers to make a small income and a way to gain viewers. For someone as small as me, it gives me something to look forward to when it comes to streaming.

AskTheGamers.com Q: What other content creators or twitch streamers inspire you if any?

LokiMCR: Ah, I started off as a really bad player since. I grinded for months to get where I am and I want to continue getting better at the game. I wanna be like Dodge, Geek, Hunter, people who have fun and are willing to take their time to help players go flawless especially to the virgins. I wanna better myself before I can give back to the community. This community has given me so much. It helped me find myself and it would mean a lot to me to give back. I wanna help the player thats never gone flawless, someone who needs a friend to play with or just a community where they could be themselves. And thats the inspiring thing that most of the streamers in the destiny community have; a supportive community.

AskTheGamers.com Q: Going forward, what goals are you proud of having
accomplished with your stream and what goals are yet to come?

LokiMCR: I wasn’t much of a streamer to begin with. I was more of a supportive friend who would shout out other streamers to help them with viewers. I eventually decided to stream more often because of the Affiliation program that twitch offered, so that’s one thing I’m proud of. For my future goals, I’m not entirely sure. I mean it would be nice to create my own community where anyone is welcomed. I do have one goal in mind which is getting partnered but at the moment it way too far from my reach but for now I’ll keep having fun.

AskTheGamers.com Q: 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?

LokiMCR: My high school friend recently started streaming and what I told her was to just be herself. Tell your friends because friends are what make up your community. Make a Social media platform for yourself where you advertise your own channel. I mainly supported most of my friends before I decided to take on the Affiliation requirements.

My interview with Lelyn Marie of twitch.tv/lelynmarie

Lelyn Marie of twitch.tv/lelynmarie

AskTheGamers.com Q: What hobbies do you have outside of streaming?

Lelyn Marie: Outside of streaming, I’m really passionate about equitation, otherwise known as horseback riding. Presently, I’m working towards what’s called a PATH certification, which will qualify me as a therapeutic horseback riding instructor for people with mental and physical disabilities. I also really enjoy cooking and baking, and when I get the chance, I love hiking and adventuring!

AskTheGamers.com Q: What got you into gaming?

Lelyn Marie: Oh, gosh, I started gaming when I was young just because it was something fun to do sometimes, as I feel like most of us did. I distinctly remember faking sick one morning and staying home from school to play Kingdom Hearts all day. But Destiny is actually the first FPS game that I got into, and the only one that I still play. I played a little bit of Halo and a little bit of CoD, and I have Battlefield 1, but I always find myself going back to Destiny, as much as it may frustrate me sometimes. I still remember my first time seeing the commercial for Destiny and thinking how cool and different from traditional FPS games it looked, and I immediately went to preorder it.

AskTheGamers.com Q: How did you discover twitch?

Lelyn Marie: It actually wasn’t that long ago that I discovered Twitch, especially considering how long it’s actually been around. It surprised me to learn that it launched in 2011. It was back at the end of year 1, maybe the very beginning of year 2, when I first started playing PvP – I didn’t start dabbling with the crucible until later in my Destiny experience. The group I would run Trials with would talk about certain streamers that they’d watch, and so I decided to check it out. I spent most of my time lurking, but eventually started popping in to Destiny streamers’ chats to say hello, and eventually ventured beyond the Destiny directory to discover other streamers.

AskTheGamers.com Q: Tell me how you chose your twitch name?

Lelyn Marie: My Twitch name is very boring, it’s just my name – lelynmarie – and it’s the same as my PSN and my Twitter handle. Since I was a little late to the Twitch party, I figured it’d make the most sense as far as branding goes to just stick with what I’d already established.

AskTheGamers.com Q: What are your thoughts on the destiny community?

Lelyn Marie: The Destiny community is something really special, and from what I’ve witnessed, also very unlike any other gaming community. It’s the first gaming community I’ve ever been a part of, and through it, I’ve made friends that I consider family. The community has been responsible for coming together and doing some incredible work for charity, and also for coming together to help out people in the community. There are always going to be a few bad eggs, but more often than not, it’s an incredible community that promotes positivity and support. So, it’s got a special place in my heart.

AskTheGamers.com Q: Tell me a little bit about your community on twitch and the people in it.

Lelyn Marie: Since I just started streaming pretty recently, and since I don’t stream very often, my community is a small one. Even still, it’s a community, and it means the world to me. It’s so humbling to me that of all the people on Twitch streaming at the same time as me, there are people that choose to come by MY stream and give me their time, and I’m so incredibly gracious for the support. I have regulars that come by each and every time I stream, and we all just talk about our lives, in and out of gaming. It’s very much a chill, laid back atmosphere. It’s always very much like a group of friends hanging out and kicking it together.

AskTheGamers.com Q: what would you like to see in destiny 2? , what would you like to NOT see?

Lelyn Marie: Ever since I got involved with the crucible, I’ve been a very PvP oriented player. I’m not that good, but even still, I thoroughly enjoy it. As such, I’d love to see more balance in the crucible. I’d love for there to be more of a focus on primary gun battles and gun skill, and less on things like grenade and melee spam. Based on the reveal, it’s looking very promising, and I couldn’t be more excited!

AskTheGamers.com Q: If you could change anything about twitch ,
how would you make it different?

Lelyn Marie: Maybe it’s because I haven’t used Twitch for as long as other people, or that I don’t stream as often as those that do it more regularly, but I can’t think of anything that could possibly make Twitch better! They’ve done a phenomenal job of creating and optimizing the platform. It’s so easy for viewers to interact and support their favorite streamers, and I’m also a huge fan of the hosting feature. I’m so glad they included autohosting! Twitch has done great with fostering a sense of support and community.

AskTheGamers.com Q: What other content creators or twitch streamers inspire you if any?

Lelyn Marie: I’m really inspired by streamers in the Destiny community – big or small – that do Trials help solely for the sake of helping, and can do it with a completely level head throughout. They don’t succumb to tilt, and they don’t blame the person they’re helping. The game can get frustrating sometimes, and it takes a lot of patience and positivity not to give in to that. I really respect guys like TrueVanguard and KJhovey that maintain a fun, lighthearted atmosphere.

AskTheGamers.com Q: Going forward, what goals are you proud of having accomplished with your stream and what goals are yet to come?

Lelyn Marie: For the longest time, I was very reluctant to stream. I struggle with some pretty considerable anxiety, but I really wanted to start streaming in order to meet new people in the community. So, I’m most proud of myself for starting up that first stream, and for continuing to do it, even when it’s tough. My goals are very simple. All I want to do going forward is to continue combating my anxiety by hitting that “broadcast gameplay” button, and to continue providing a positive, welcoming place to just hang out for those that choose to watch me. Other than that, I’d really just like to establish a more consistent schedule.

AskTheGamers.com Q: 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?

Lelyn Marie: I think the best advice that I could give to anyone – long time streamers or to those just starting out – would be to just be yourself, and to interact with your chat. By doing so, you’ll attract an audience that will keep coming back, not because of the game you choose to stream or how well you play said game, but because of you!
