You’ve probably noticed I haven’t been posting much content on here lately, have I?
So what have I been up to? Well, I’m finally branching out to other types of content like I promised my Patrons I would do for years… I’m Streaming now! Read on to find out how I’m liking streaming and my future plans for MMO Bits!
Xam Xam’s Twitch Stream
Yes, I finally started streaming on Twitch! If you haven’t already, you should check out my stream sometime and give me a follow – https://www.twitch.tv/xam_xam
It’s been an interesting learning curve. I’ve watched Twitch Streams for many years yet, I feel I’m still failing at basic tasks and etiquette. I’d like to think I’m slowly improving and gradually remembering all the things I should do. But my approach in all honesty is to enjoy the journey and have fun! The next step for me is to start doing weekly community nights where I do stuff with my viewers!
On the tech side of things, I’m still trying to figure everything out. I’ve had mic issues which I think I’ve finally partially resolved at least. Dealing with lighting for my face cam has also been quite frustrating. I feel like I have to adjust it prior to every stream. Hopefully, I’ll eventually be able to get some better lighting that’s less of a hassle to deal with.
Overall though, I really have been enjoying streaming! Some people may find that a weird thing to say coming from a self-confessed, anti-social introvert. To me, streaming feels like being on stage and I’ve never been one to shy away from being on stage. I love it in fact! It’s more interpersonal interactions and not really knowing how to have conversations with people (make small talk) that make me anti-social. In my mind, it’s better to be quiet than make a fool of myself. It can also sometimes take me a while to think of a response to something said to me or to process what is said to me. If anything, streaming may help me learn how to talk to people better in a way that working in retail never did.
But all in all, it has been so much fun streaming game content that I love to play in my own time and to talk about it with my viewers. For now, I will be streaming both Star Wars The Old Republic and New World!
Future MMO Bits Content
Never fear, I will still be doing articles and guides right here on MMO Bits! However, I will be narrowing my content focus, especially for Star Wars The Old Republic. If you have watched my streams, then you can probably easily guess where my content focus will be. I’m also waiting for things to be more settled with 7.0 before writing up guides to ensure I’m providing you all with accurate information. Things may change a bit on the PTS especially since they have released it so early. Either way, you can expect the same amount and quality of guides that I released for 6.0 for 7.0 too! Class Guides remain an unknown at this stage…
While you wait for my 7.0 content. Here’s a breakdown of the NEW Discipline Trees. Feel free to share and remember this is all subject to change!
I will also be branching out into doing some written content for New World! Probably some guides and articles here and there. Not sure what topics I’ll be covering yet. Probably just whatever tickles me fancy!
I really am excited to be streaming and to continue making content right here on MMO Bits! Thank you to everyone who has visited the website and supported my content in various ways over the years! I look forward to making more content for years to come!
