League of Legends, Community, and Confidence: An Interview with Livestreamer KayPea

Getting more access to that early is very helpful. KayPea: Honestly, when I first started from university, I was just someone that was looking to kind of share a passion with other people that played League as well. KayPea: It was Modern Warfare 2 and it was on the PlayStation 3. I do believe there was a season that was like that. I really enjoy being in my community.

I get more frustrated and more upset. I pride myself in being mechanically talented, and so on stream, if I make a mistake, a lot of the times, my mood gets shifted to a more negative spot. Why is having this connection important to you? Some people are incredibly good socially, some people are socially awkward, you never really know what you're going to get. You'll see a lot of them in my videos as well as the occasional dragon or baron steal :3 I have two cats named Ronin and Luna that also sometimes make guest apperances in my videos, as well as the families newest addition, my puppy Freya. KayPea: I think that with the current changes of the map and everything, nothing is affected too much. Especially being a female player and spending that much time playing video games, and so it was looked upon so poorly back then.

I'll likely have to pick up other champions, but in general, I'm going to see how the season goes and then hopefully by then, I'll have some tricks up my sleeves. I had no friends that played League in university. Her parents would only allow her to play for an hour a day, but that was enough for her to slowly develop her skills. Often, people start because they want to be big. My friends would make fun of me for staying home on Fridays and Saturday nights playing League instead of going to clubs.

It took her three months to accumulate 15 viewers. If you're wondering why I made this choice, come to stream and type!. This was around the time that he r family moved to Singapore, where they remained until she was 15 year old. But in general, I'm worried because I fear that we're going into the slightly more tanky meta. To have a group of people that love the game just as much as I do and are down to like hanging out and just talk about it and share their experiences, it's kind of like that give-and-take feeling. I'm just kind of hoping that we don't go back down that road and there still is a way that I am able to still make an impact with the current champion pool that I have. My social media links are below if you haven't already followed me there.

She was playing 6 — 8 hours of LoL a day while still in university, in addition to working part-time. Her parents are supportive of her career. This proved to be the right move for her, as it helped bolster her subscriber count to the point where she has been able to make a successful living out of full-time streaming. She began streaming purely for the sake of having a few people to chat with while she was gaming. Sorry for the lack of vids, youtube is messy these days so I figured I'd go back to throwing together the occasional highlight vid vs a 10min long vid per week. She also played Nintendo 64 games, such as Mario Kart and GoldenEye 007 at her friend's house. On this channel you will find highlights and funny moments from my ranked games on stream as well as the very occasional Vlog.

More often, people want to start because they want to be a pro and there's a lot of steps that come before that. So it really just adds another element to the connection between streamers and viewers. She later moved on to Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 2 as well as other titles. With the Cloud Drake and the ultimate with that and getting like lower cooldowns, it definitely helps, because a lot of the champions that I use do a lot with their ultimates and that's how you change team fights. But there is one main thing that is the same that translates to a lot of different types of video games, which are skill shots and accuracy. A friend of hers introduced her to Twitch, thereby opening a new, fun community to her. If you do it because you love it and because you're passionate about it, then it's never going to feel like work and it's always going to be something that you're looking forward to not dreading.

They always assume that someone that made a mistake did that on purpose, and they're expecting people to not get mad at them if they make a tiny error. She began playing League of Legends LoL while in university and began streaming her gameplays a year later. Try to stay as positive as possible. However, her channel slowly developed and her skills also became recognized to the point where she was offered the opportunity to join team in the Netherlands in 2015. I think it's definitely something that I think is enjoyable for both ends.

She spent a lot of that time playing alone, and really wanted to have people to interact with. KayPea: There was a time where I think it was in Rotterdam where I was doing a meet and greet with Riot at one of their events. I'm hoping we don't have to deal with the situation of how I'm just a mage in mid lane that's like really, really easy to kill and a big massive like Sion or Jax comes to just one shot to me and I use like three variations of combos and it tickles them. And oftentimes, people skip those steps and just expect to just be there. She decided to take the risk and gave up her job and sold her possessions to move there. KayPea: I think it definitely is that confidence level. So I'm really happy not only with the progression of the gaming industry but just my general confidence in sharing it with people and not being afraid of being proud of it.
