My name is Liz and I am known for my obscure meme Gamertag, short pink hair, and Raids with viewers. I'm very inclusive, making for a really fun, witty, and interactive chat. My GT comes from one of my favorite Youtube videos from 10+ years ago called ""Schfifty Five"" by Gröûp X. I was making my Gamertag and tried every version of "KatpissNeverclean" to no avail (Hunger Games ftw!) I'm always saying "Schfifty Five" when the number comes up in real life, so it just kind of worked.
I started streaming back in April of 2015 because my wee little clan never had enough friends online to Raid. I thought that if I could get help from viewers on Twitch I could help them in return. SPOILER ALERT: it worked!As my channel grows and evolves, I still make sure to Raid with new people. It's the only way to make friends! I am always sure to include inexperienced players as well. I want everyone to have a chance to learn how to play the game. I hate it when people say they go on to LFG and get kicked from the group when the other players found out they haven't raided before, or that they don't have Touch of Malice, or for some other exclusionary reason. I take the time to teach people how to Raid so they can, in turn, help others. It's a sort of "pay-it-forward" system.
I can't tell you how many times I've been online for 14-16 hours and things just started to get weird. But I think my favorite recent memory was when I "initiated" one of my lovely mods in the King's Fall Raid. We took her to the Wall Punch hallway (look, I know what y'all call it, I'm just trying to be nice) and told her to look down the edge of the platform, and BOOM. Ded. It was glorious. Also, I noticed that there is a light that naturally leads the user exactly to that particular spot. Sneaky devs are sneaky.
I'm a fiercely inclusive person in game and in chat. I don't like it when people are excluded because they "don’t have the right guns", they haven't completed something before, or they're just "too young". I just don't understand: how can you get experience if nobody will let you play? If you can listen and follow directions, you can play Destiny with me.
Be yourself. Help others. Interact with your viewers. Interact with other streamers. Try console streaming first before spending a lot of money on capture equipment (PS4 camera has a green screen option and neither console needs a capture card to get started streaming). Get on Twitter/Instagram/Youtube (Twitter is lifeblood for streamers). Get good bots for chat! Mine are Nightbot, for notifications and general chat commands, Moobot for saying "Thanks for following!" and some games, and Revlobot for giveaways.And lastly, you are in charge of your own stream. Don't ever let anyone bully you in any way. I see growing streamers deal with jerks because "at least they're in my channel." No. You set your own boundaries. Good people will show up if you weed out the bad ones. My first day I had a person come into my chat who was bullying my other viewer (yes there were two people in my stream, w00t!). I made a choice there and then that I wanted a positive, fun, snarky, weird, nerdy-as-hell chat, and that he/she did not fit those guidelines. Nobody should tolerate bullying or harassment, whether it's toward you or your viewers. I still stand by that to this day.
Can we please talk about Raid LFG integration in-game? I started playing Destiny on Day 1 with literally ZERO friends on playstation (not figuratively, nerds), and I completed Crota fewer than 5 times by the time I started streaming in April. In vanilla Destiny, I was stuck at level 27 until I randomly added someone from strike matchmaking. He added me to his clan and helped me complete VoG for the first time. I was lucky they took me in with no experience. For those out there who don't have many friends available to play when they're online, an integrated Raid LFG (or matchmaking) would be great.
