I'm looking to get feedback on stream quality, entertainment value and what do you think of me as a person.
On first impression:
1. Would you be a viewer of my stream?
2. If yes, how could I improve?
3. If not, what must I change for you to be more likely to do it?
4. Would you even view a gaming stream? What do you think of watching video games in the first place?!?!
5. If the problem is with me, don't be afraid to voice it.
Any piece of advice or critique you can give me. Either post it here or PM me on Twitch. Both options are ok.
My stream is here http://www.Twitch.tv/FRANZUU
At least come in and say hi.
Going live after posting this thread. Keep in mind that this will be my first stream (apart from a test stream), so expect awkwardness .
My dream is to become a full time streamer. Prepared to use every last ounce of willpower to make the necessary changes required for that to happen.
I want to stream every day and periodically will post here when I go online. I'd update every time, but I consider that spammy.
You can look at my past broadcasts if I'm not live when you see this. Go to my stream page and click on the "Videos" tab in the top right corner. It is next to the "Chat" tab.
I will post updates from my streaming venture and if I happen to stop, I'll be sure to let you know.
I was too late to see your stream live, but I caught a video and I wasn't impressed. Your mic level was too low and from what I could hear there wasn't much interesting going on. Really, the loud ones are the most noticeable and they all slip into obnoxious territory anyway.
The straight "streaming an MMO" route is far too saturated even for someone who can be a decent entertainer. All of my friends tried their hands at the Twitch streaming game and none have gotten anything out of it.
I've both reviewed games on Youtube and streamed with a friend on Twitch, and I can relate to wanting to do that thing full-time. You have to stand out though and not many of us can entertain an audience while playing Titanfall. If you're willing to try it anyway, good luck.
I know, gameplay doesn't matter. its your personality and true the obnoxious ones get noticed (pewdiepie, uberhaxornova, sodapoppin etc.) but I had fun and i'd say that my first stream was successful. I'll work on improving myself.
Watching people play games sucks when I could play that game myself. Don't bother streaming, find a different video game related hobby (eg machinima).
I do occasionally watch LPs, but that's usually if i'm stuck at a certain point in the game and can't figure it out otherwise. I don't find famous LPers like "Two Best Friends" to be very funny.
I would recommend you either do game reviews like Angry Joe and Totalbiscuit do. Or you could do video game related countdowns like Joshscorcher, cjszero01, Rabbidluigi, Animalguy001, Peanut3432, Superflipper76 and several others do.
Twitch is just kind of eh, I found it funny watching TB play through Ride To Hell: Retribution, but aside from that I rarely visit the site.
Also, it was hard to hear you and I didn't really find your commentary that interesting. Sorry. I agree with pacguy. It's noble to try and follow your dream but you have to be realistic. I just don't see this panning out.
Here's what I would like. Short concise fact-based reviews on old games under five minutes long.
1 day of streaming (that I consider a success) and people saying nay isn't going to get me to quit yet.
I know, watching video games isn't for everyone and that is fine but hundreds of thousand of people do. I'll just have to find my game ans schtick. Some people are naturals at it and they get it right off the bat.
Anyway, going live again.
Yesterday some of the feedback I got was that I was hard to understand because of my accent + my tendency to mumble. I have made some changes to my set-up and will make an effort to speak clearly. People have said that I mumble when I speak my own language too.
What I want to know:
1. Can you understand what I am saying?
2. How bad is my accent?
3. Would you be a viewer of my stream?
4. Yes or no, how can I improve my stream?
Improving your stream means being more interesting overall. Some people can do that, most can't.
