I accepted the that my return to LIVE broadcasting last week would eventually lead me to playing a battle royale game. I just didn’t realize it would be this soon. Since the idea was already there, it didn’t take much from the mere mention of Fortnite in my chat to make me want to play it sooner. Like in the movie Inception, “an idea is like a virus, resilient, highly contagious. The smallest seed of an idea can grow. It can grow to define or destroy you.” Let’s just hope we have some fun and good games.
I was surprised at how many people wanted to join me in duos matches. Whether it was publicity, curiosity or genuine charity I couldn’t tell, but I stood firm on my agenda to simply play solo to continue to learn how to play in general.
While I joked about becoming one of “those” LIVE broadcasters who has turned to the popularity of Fortnite for viewership, I don’t think it could ever be a game that I primarily stream. Maybe it’s because I’m not that good, maybe it’s because I don’t find it all that fulfilling or interesting, or maybe I need to find the right composition of friends to play with to optimize my enjoyment.
For now I think I will just try to get better at it, both on and off stream. And then see where things go from there. Either way, thank for joining me on this journey of self improvement in a game that may or may no longer be popular by the time you read this.
