My take on new channel points feature to boost streams

You probably could notice that thing appearing on top of my chat telling you that boosting my channel is in progress, I think it even was constantly there glitched out for a couple of days. That’s new Twitch’s feature finally finding some actual use for channel points that is not just to burn them (even though I like the ability to get some emotes, but for some reason it is actually barely used).

So what’s this boosting about and what do I think about it, let’s see… Continue reading “My take on new channel points feature to boost streams”

Me and special streams

More than a week after charity stream and everything is still a little bit all over the place, but it’s a lot better and I’m more calm now, now I would say my grinding addiction is interrupting natural flow of things and that’s why I forgot to write a blog post on Thursday.

As I mentioned in previous post I have my own special perspective on special streams and today I want to talk about it, gonna be a post of transparency… Continue reading “Me and special streams”

My take on Twitch selling Affiliate status with Monstercat subscription

Been a while since I posted my Pepega takes, so here we go, very fresh one too. Affiliate status is something that is very hard to get on Twitch, but now you can get it by just investing pretty small sum of money in music service subscription.

Obviously reaction to that was pretty negative overall, not a huge shitstorm, but a lot of upset people and a lot of messages to other streamers asking them to give their take. Well here’s mine… Continue reading “My take on Twitch selling Affiliate status with Monstercat subscription”

What is Ragnarok Online?

Now that I posted a whole chapter of memoirs in my previous post about Ragnarok Online where you can find my motivation and reasoning behind even starting with this endeavor.

Now let’s get to details – what’s Ragnarok Online for those who don’t know or for those who want to see what it is for me, but with way less nostalgia glasses compared to previous post. Let’s go… Continue reading “What is Ragnarok Online?”

Why Ragnarok Online now?

It’s almost time to do my regular Ragnarok Online dive, this time live for the first time, servers open tomorrow 6pm CEST, but due to my day off and potential delays I’ll hop on Friday stream. Last nostalgia trip was in summer 2017 for Ragnarok Restart (think WoW Classic, but a bit different and speedily catching up with retail in content and updates) on iRO, pretty much disappeared there for a few weeks and those were some good times. Then some metagaming kicked in, bots, laggy servers and I left, server pretty much died in around 9 months and got merged with retail server less than 2 years after.

So why this game, what’s so special about it for me to return again and again and why now? All these questions I’ll try to cover in current post, but there will be a second post tomorrow to cover more potential questions about the game. Continue reading “Why Ragnarok Online now?”

My personal perspective on streamer orgs, collabs etc

Last Sunday group of big streamers, mostly from World of Warcraft scene, announced the creation of their organization called One True King, OTK. I’m really far from WoW tbh, but watch Asmongold a lot recently, so I caught the announcement and it was great, org itself seems really interesting and with a lot of potential, many ideas and some things already in motion, I hope they will succeed with all their plans and even if with part, that will already be some quality content and positive influence for the scene.

But for me it also had some “side effects”, it got me really inspired in a way and made me think about stuff like this – organizations, collaborations between streamers, streamer houses and all that jazz. So there will be a lot of thinkening in this post… Continue reading “My personal perspective on streamer orgs, collabs etc”

My take on recent mid-roll ads idea on Twitch

Well I’ll start with ez tl;dr – “It is a really bad idea to add mid-roll ads on Twitch”, that’s it, you read it, nothing to see here – move along.

But seriously it’s a part of a long “paradigm shift” that Twitch is doing to increase their ad revenue through us, streamers working on increasing our ad revenue, current clown fiesta is second move in that process, first I didn’t dedicate a blog post too, because it actually seemed quite good and didn’t stir any drama, but let’s discuss it more.

My current Fallout 76 grind and its future

Fallout 76 totally requires a “review” from me here too, but I think one post won’t be enough even with my walls of texts if I will go on a rant about some decisions or if I will start talking about some potentially good things to change or implement in the game.

For now I’ll just address my feelings about current state of the game and me farming it a lot on stream and where is it going (still a lot of text and you can skip a chunk of it for sorta tl;dr). Continue reading “My current Fallout 76 grind and its future”

My take on Charity Streams twitter fiesta from week ago

Late with this, since was on vacation and previous post was more important imo, but gonna finish the post that I started before. Not gonna touch the drama part of all that Twitter fiesta, it just escalated far beyond any expectations and one clip out of context and with not very well worded thought started some pop corn worthy fight on Twitter, you can check LSF and all that for drama itself, it already concluded with a lot of apologies btw, which is good, I just gonna post my thoughts on initial statement and all things that it sparked that are not just for the sake of arguing.

Little intro though for those who don’t know – xQc said that most of the streamers are getting paid for their charity streams or participating in one. Obviously it sparked some “how could they” reeing and obviously caused questions so DrLupo posted a statement where he said that he did all his charity streams for free and then fiesta started, that I’m not gonna touch. But let’s talk about the initial statement and discussion about charity streams… Continue reading “My take on Charity Streams twitter fiesta from week ago”

Mental Health. Reckful. Lessons we need to learn

Yesterday we lost a legend – both streaming and gaming. Sad that I didn’t get a chance to meet him IRL, it could happen in Amsterdam this year, because he was going, but then corona ruined that.

This year in general keeps getting worse, but unfortunately behind all the shitty things this year there are mostly our mistakes and failures as humanity, one way or another. We can blame 2020 for all that happened and is still happening and hell there might be more coming too, but we need to realize that behind all that shit there are real problems that we need to address and work on fixing that, otherwise in 6 months we will be blaming 2021 already. Today we will talk about problems that caused yesterday’s tragedy and this will be a long one… Continue reading “Mental Health. Reckful. Lessons we need to learn”
