One thing that I have always been a little apprehensive about when it comes to gaming is streaming. That shouldn't come as a surprise. Most streamers have a whole filming set up complete with webcam and headset. For those with social anxiety, putting yourself as the focal point for everyone to see sounds downright awful. Not to mention the pressure is on when folks are watching and ultimately judging your every move.
Despite my aversion, I decided to give streaming another shot. I play with a great group of folks who have encouraged me many times over to stream. Many of my gaming buddies seem genuinely intrigued by their mute friend's play style. Streaming gives them some insight as to how I do it.
While I don't need to prove anything to anyone, it might also put an end to those making accusations about me using software to cheat. I especially get annoyed with those that think I'm using mouse and keys. Both assertions are ridiculous given that I don't always win my 1v1s. I'm just as likely to be outgunned or maneuvered in a match as anyone else. The stream unlike my YouTube channel readily displays my wins and my losses.
I'm excited and hopeful to try out this new adventure. I hope you'll join me along the way.
