They were arguing about bud light seltzer’s earlier today.
Actually read all of that and felt like i was back in middle school
you post on this board. I’m sure you’ve seen similar pissing matches here.
I’m dumber for reading this.
I have and have found myself in similar pissing matches
That is a daily occurrence in Champzy when certain Chinese restaurants are brought up

Another good celebrity stream is TPain.
He just released a huge pack of Dmca free music/beats for streamers to use on stream.
In other crazy twitch news, stream Reckful has apparently committed suicide. I don't know who he is, but timthetatman has been talking about it.
one of the OG streamers, actually watched him a good bit. his brother iirc committed suicide years ago.
Holy fuck. So sad. I used to watch his streams back in the day. Fuck 2020
He was a big wow streamer right?
His tweets the last few hours. Scary
This guy was a legendary WoW arena player. Fell into a pretty public bipolar/depression struggle years ago, sought help for it many times. Viewers would often troll his stream chat telling him to kill himself.
His tweet this morning asking his ex-girlfriend to marry him had some pretty cruel replies and this was the result.
His brother also committed suicide years ago - Reckful's parents have lost both of their children now.
are you saying he killed himself because of those replies? come on
I posted it in another thread but holy shit at the number of sexual predators in esports right now. Most recent one is a female smash bros commentator who was sexually grooming at 14 year old pro in 2014 and there’s videos of them being way too touchy feely on camera at tournaments.
As a noob to streaming, my stream is awful choppy when it gets a little intense. I have a 2070 Super. I'm only streaming it at 720p.
What’s your upload?
thats a cpu thing
I bumped up the bitrate and it seems to have improved. I've got a Ryzen 7 - 3700x
edit: seems to be a COD thing. Runs fine with Destiny, but COD is choppy as shit. And I've got most of my settings turned down.
edit edit: turned off the preview in OBS and it seemed to run better. It seems like it takes my CPU time to get used to things. FPS starts off low, then gets steady; stream starts off slow then steady's out.
theres a 3rd child but yea on most other accounts you are correct.
Reckful got fucking huge on wow because he was one of the first people to make youtube videos. He was stupid good at PVP’ing and people viewed him as a god. The story about how he made blizzcon is actually pretty spectacular. Dude was highly intelligent, but super super depressed.
It so fucking sad. He was a good dude.
Critical role is back from their Covid hiatus and it’s crazy seeing literally tens of thousands of sub notifications all at once
There is a harvard educated psychologist named Alok who started HealthygamerGG. He gamed a lot himself and want to do more to help gamers mentally. Amazing stuff really.
He talks to streamers on his stream. He had like a 3-4 ep session with Reckful.
Reckful was a good dude. He wanted to help people and people suck.
Have there been any additional developments in the dr disrespect stuff?
Nope, I think they’re all NDAed out the ass, doubt we know much for a while.
was at the beach this past week, the Reckful news floored me. Reckful and soda are easily my longest Twitch follows at this point, like 8ish (I think reckful was probably 6 or 7, he started later than soda) years and easily the most hours watched. it's not particularly shocking if you knew Reckful since he had BPD (not bi-polar), was self-medicating and had discussed suicide before but still a complete tragedy. legitimate 5Head streamer, maybe one of the smartest people on the entire platform, super entertaining streamer. Reckful helped shape modern gamer streaming in a lot of ways, the first streamer to ever really focus on the quality of his stream by dropping serious cash for high quality mics, cameras, etc.; a lot of how you see gamers operate on the platform is because he figured things out for them. absolutely tragic situation.
it weirdly bummed me out too, i didn't watch him a ton but i first started watching twitch right around the time him and soda went to japan for a few weeks. was kind of what got me hooked as something to watch while doing my horrific previous job.
Damn, just saw reckful killed himself. He did a lot for streaming
Looks like this will be answered soon
also this top reply is amazing
I’ve felt extremely out of the loop wrt Reckful since it seems he got big in either wrath or cata and I had zoned out of WoW by then.
Reckful was a good dude. Sad he was fucking broken to the core :(
ripple effect going on with streamers right now, Blue622 is dead of OD (no word yet on accidental or not) and Ohlana is also dead of an apparent suicide.
suicide clusters are real, this is bad stuff.
Depression is real and the stigma that follows it is debilitating for many
Spoiler: her goodbye letter
Ninja to YouTube. Made too much sense. He has a lot of connections there and is friends with Fwiz who is the head of YouTube Gaming. 140k viewers right now. He should thrive a lot more there compared to Mixer
god damn that's a sad read. RIP
I'll never understand why Mixer never took off. Ninja nor Shroud pulled any numbers like they got on twitch and now youtube. Did people just not want to download it or what? I don't like the way youtube is, probably because I can't navigate it well enough to see what the top streams are, lol.
The app was very buggy. They also did a pretty poor job of marketing it. They thought that people went to twitch specifically for certain streamers when the reality is that people go to twitch to watch the best (who have a good personality) play the most popular game at the moment. The average person logs onto twitch, and clicks the stream on their follower list that has the most current viewers.
Ninja and Shroud left, so the masses just started watching the next most popular guy who streamed the current "Meta" game instead of following them over.
because they wanted to make Mixer and not Twitch v2.0, which is what people need to do to beat Twitch. the meme part of Twitch chat is the zeitgeist, that's the part people need to appeal to in order to see platform change. it doesn't matter how popular shroud or ninja are, their fanbases age in and age out. you need to appeal to the streamers who have young adult+ fanbases who are always aging with the streamer, that's the group who determines value on Twitch right now.
if you want to beat Twitch, you literally need to just copy everything about the platform (clip system, chat, emotes and the ability for emote extensions like BTTV and FFZ) and then call it a different name. people want to be done with Twitch but the alternatives are ass right now. make it appealing enough to streamers with serious fanbases in that YA category to think a move wouldn't lose them followers and they'll go and Twitch will sink but until that happens, it doesn't matter how many millions you toss at the most popular streamers, they're not actually the ones who affect change on this medium. you get people like forsen, soda, asmon, etc. to move over and that whole circle of friends would follow and their fans would instantly shit on Twitch and make it seem uncool and that would ripple down into the mega fanbases that are ultimately full of impressionable kids and teens.
That and mixer offered nothing new that twitch already had. Why switch?
1 is that in order to watch once they went to mature setting, you have to prove your 18+ or whatever the age was and to do that you have to create an account so that's a barrier to just watching
The other is twitch thrives bc of twitch prime (free subs). Mixer doesn't have anything like that.
I think Mixer tried to launch something where you could literally backseat and choose a way the streamer had to play. I hated Mixer's sticker system where it took space on the screen. I mostly watch from mobile. I thought mixer had better video quality, but they also didn't offer an "audio only" option.
Edit: I have never subscribed to a mixer streamer. Only reason I do on twitch is because of the prime. I also may be an outlier, because I do go to twitch/mixer/whatever for the specific person. If tim or cloakzy or nickmercs left for mixer, I'd probably spend more time watching them over there, then finding the next option on twitch.
Mixer's app sucks and Youtube's app sucks too
Mixers mobile app was abysmal as well. There was loads of issues that never seemed to quite figure out
such a brilliant move by Amazon/Twitch
going full screen on youtube with the chat taking up half the screen is still so weird. I know you can disable it but I honestly wonder who thought that was a good idea
