Day two of Official Streamers week here at the Welsh Gaming Network and I’ve managed to collar Neil7879, one of our console streamers!
I took a few moments of his time to record down what makes Neil what he is today and where he hopes to see himself in the future.
Galeprime (GP): Hi there Neil thank you for taking the time to sit with me for a few minutes for this interview, let me start with a basic question. What is your in-game name, where do you stream to and what is your channels address?
Neil7879 (N): Hi there Gale thanks for inviting me! My in-game name is CcFcNeilCcFc, I stream to Twitch currently and my channel web address is www.twitch.tv/neil7879.
GP: That’s awesome, and what sort of content do you stream to your channel Neil?
N: I mostly stream FIFA as I enjoy sports games but my most popular game has been Grand Theft Auto. However I have recently started to dabble in a bit of Call of Duty for some variation. I’m aiming for Twitch affiliation so I’m trying to keep my channel varied to gain more viewers.
GP: That’s a great step to take! I’m sure with enough drive you’ll get affiliation soon enough! So tell me, what do you use to stream to Twitch?
N: I use PS4, I don’t own a full desktop PC so I use my PS4 to stream gameplay and a laptop for my chat so I can stay interactive with my viewers.
GP: How interesting, always good to get scope on streamers different setups! Do you have a picture of your setup you can share with our readers?
N:No problem, here you go! (See below)Here we have the nest of the wild Neil7879. We find here plenty of cables, and also what appears to be a hole where he curls up to sleep/hide from his viewers 😉
GP: You certainly have a very…interesting setup there! Do you use any bots at all in your chat to assist you?
N: No I pretty much just stream direct off the PS4 to my Twitch channel, In do all of my chat moderation myself and Twitch currently provides me with enough tools to do the job.
GP: Interesting to hear you don’t use bots! But what got you into streaming in the first place, and where do you see yourself in the next 12 months?
N: I got into streaming from watching LtZonda. I started streaming when I got my PS4. I hope in the next 12 months I can gain Twitch affiliation and make streaming more of a full-time thing.
GP: That’s very inspiring to hear you still have the want and drive to get affiliated! I hope you get there, which you will if you put the hard work in. Speaking of inspiring, have you got any advice or inspiring words to give to our readers who want to start streaming or have just started their streaming career?
N: Just do it. Dont get de-motivated from low viewers, just do what you do and enjoy! Every streamer has zero viewers towards the start of their streaming career but they continued onwards and got to where they are now.
GP: That’s great Neil thank you so much for taking time out of your day to see me, I sincerely hope you get your Twitch affiliation that you desire and I will see you soon!
N: Thanks very much for having me Gale take it easy!
