Why I Quit Streaming On YouTube Gaming

Black Ops 4 MX9: paworks.info/videos/TXli_JsuZXs-%E0%A8%B5%E0%A9%80%E0%A8%A1%E0%A9%80%E0%A8%93.html
Today's video is a bit of a personal and behind the scenes look at my channel. I most talk about the rise and fall of PAworks Gaming as a platform and why I quit streaming on it. My opinion is that streaming on PAworks kills channels because it messes with sub boxes.

    Such a helpful perspective. I wish streaming was better supported on YT since it’s my preferred platform to consume content, but that doesn’t necessarily translate to the best place to make certain content. Even with the difficulty of discoverability over on Twitch, it’s still better streaming there and focusing on bringing video content here. Thanks for actually talking about this!

    It took me 1 year to get 70 subscribers.Another year to get to 150.I never watch streaming videos. I find it exhausting and a waste of time to be listening to someone playing a game for 1h or longer.. Monetization has changed good people into angry or unhappy people so I will not go down that road.Look at Pewdiepie and how youtube has changed him? Success is not in how rich you have become but in how mentally balanced and happy you are right now.Google is a selfish dragon with no feelings for anyone and no conscience.Maybe the empire is run and controlled by AI... Take a vacation my good man and switch off you tube.You will regain back your sanity.

    This is interesting because normally PAworks recommends me your “commentary talking about something big then us” but for the past months I’ve missed them all. And I really love them it’s a shame PAworks I no longer putting it in my home page.(I mainly watch PAworks on my iPhone)

    I'm so glad I've started watching you again. I remember buying one of those yin-yang Drift0r necklaces your wife made way back, came with a drawing of your dog, Ozy I think. I religiously watched all the MW3 indepth, probably why I would pull AC-130's all the time back then lol. I guess when I stop taking COD seriously I stopped watching as much, and the recommendation algorithm took it from there (as well as getting a new account). Glad to be back though :)

    Hey, just to give some insight I never cared for cod gameplay or commentary until zombies, the only multiplayer person I saw was 402thunder then eight thoughts and he was the one that made me aware of you and others I stayed away from your channel it was only until you started pushing back against cod that I subscribed to you, so maybe it was when the negativity of cod began that your channel started coming back

    Would having a separate channel and account for 'streaming-only' be a workable solution around this? At least it will maintain and even strengthen fan base, not everyone, like myself, use mixer or twitch, i'm more of an opportunist (if it shows in my recommendations) when i choose to watch live game play, but will actually search for tips or advice videos

    You were one of the first tubers I ever started watching. I will follow you wherever you go, and watch whatever content you create for us, until the day you decide you're done. ✌️😁👍 P.S I've said it before though you prolly never noticed, bro, you got a nice head of hair, DO SOMETHING WITH IT!. Skin tight fade to a line on the side to a pompadour would look bomb. I can recommend some barbers in your area who can hook you up. If your down to try something new with your look, ILL EVEN PAY FOR IT! (No homo, just saying, I'm into barber stuffs, so whenever I look at someone I can't help but start visualizing what different hairstyles would look like on them. And in this day and age, there are some super badass cuts going on, the skill and creativity levels have gone off the charts. I know you got a wife and could give two fucks if SHE isn't saying hey why not a new hairstyle, but c'mon bro have a little style about yourself, you've been so plain for so long now lol 2019-the year of style reinvention. Plus it won't hurt to add a few more female subs even if all they comment is stuff like you look so good today! Boost that male confidence, even males like compliments every now and then) ✌️💇‍♂️👍
