    I wonder how much an average Twitch streamer makes if you break it down.

      You have to be like top 0.1% in viewer count on Twitch to make any worthwhile amount of money.

        even having a few hundred viewers is good. a couple thousand is amazing. sure you aren't a millionaire but you're well off and not in the cage.

          yeah if you are some idiot who thinks he needs to be a millionaire to be happy, you can make a livable income with only a few hundred subs
          it takes time to build but once you're over the threshold you can dedicate more time and effort into it to keep increasing those numbers

          Having 100 viewers puts you in the top 1% or higher of Twitch streamers. There are literally millions of people streaming with 0-1 viewers, and some of them could be genuinely entertaining but no one will ever find them because Twitch's discoverability sucks. These days you have to be a "content creator" and start on youtube/twitter or whatever where growth is possible (assuming your content is actually good) and then move over to streaming more once you already have followers.

            I usually go the other way around. I find em on twitch then check their YouTube videos. YouTube is better for non vidya streaming discoverability.

            Huh, good point I guess
            100 or so doesn't sound like a lot but like you said discoverability sucks and you need to be doing more than just appearing on twitch.
            It can be hard to break into if you have no other skillsets I guess you're right.

        It's even fucking more than that, according to my stats i'm in the top 0.1% and I only make like $300 a month from streaming.
        Luckily I also have a job so it's just a nice boost.

          Supposedly going for ad sales is retarded in twitch as a streamer. That you're better off not doing twitch monetization and doing it yourself through patreon and superchat type shit. Plus if you're not monitized you can stream multiple places simultaneously.

    Just reconnect with old friends or make new ones. Streaming isn't fun, there's pressure to act a certain way and it's very fucking gay compared to just having the boys over for some vidya pizza and beer on a Friday or Saturday

        Rotating FOTM and forcing collabs is gay, but unironically. You're playing into the twitch meta and not your own person.

        Sounds good if you're into that but I don't watch streamers. Me and my friends streamed together for a while and it was alright but it wasn't as fun as just hanging out for the sake of hanging out, that's all I'm saying

    get out and meet people, go to a bar or hobby shop and shoot the shit, once you're amoung other human beings you'll see you really aren't uniquely autistic or a horrible person to talk to at all, you're just another schlub like every body else, you might even meet a girl and have sex

      That's because they're not allowed to stream to YouTube and YouTube sucks for vidya streaming but it's better for clips. So they stream twitch and clip em down for YouTube

      Boomer colloquially means something different when people say it now. It started as a meme, kids just calling anyone older than them "boomers" as a sign of disregard.

    I'm tired of it. I just want to make something with someone. I'm tired of seeing my friends resubbing to blizzshit over and over again every expansion, just grinding to the new max level, quitting before raids, and complaining about how it's "totally dead this time, never resubbing". Am I wrong for getting bored of them? Nobody does anything IRL, highschool and college are long over, and this kind of friendship just feels hollow.

      Get new hobbies and find people engaged in it or just look for new friends who feel passionate.
