Well it’s all change again in respect of my stream. Since I got ‘back into gaming’ I have been streaming over on Hitbox and to be honest with you the service that they provide is very good. It’s still in BETA and I’m sure it will move forward and become even better, however……
I am finding that for myself, Hitbox is becoming a site whereby streamers follow each other and apart from that people don’t visit. I’m not looking to have 1000′s of followers/subscribers but it has become apparent that as some larger streamers move from Twitch to Hitbox, they bring a % of viewers with them. These viewers will watch a stream of their favourite broadcaster but rather than review what other broadcasters offer on Hitbox, they log straight out and head back to Twitch.
I stream because I love the viewer interaction. I stream because I like to chill out with like minded people who love gaming and wanna just hang out. My streams will never be intense or heavy and yes I want my stream to grow but that is only as with growth will I hope come even more interaction. Let’s be honest I feel I’ve made some great friends via my gaming and yes whilst they are only ‘internet friends’ I have met some great people, to the point where I have met some in real life.
I feel that Twitch will give me more exposure and the potential to meet even more great people and will have to accept that the delay is part and parcel of using Twitch as my streaming site.
So…..from today I have decided to switch back to Twitch.
I also have some exciting news and this something that regulars to my stream will enjoy. I will be introducing Dvo Coins soon which will be a currency you earn when I stream or even when I’m offline. The more you are tuned into my channel, the more you earn. These coins can then be put towards giveaways, raffles or to just gamble with other viewers but more details on that will follow once I have it all set up.
In case some of you don’t have it…here’s the link to my twitch channel here (I’ll be updating my social media when time allows) and I hope to see you all there real soon!!
