While AFK, shroud got big donations from Nepdoo: $1500 (Quality stream shroud4head)
chat blew up with shroud4heads
Question: is it easy to make money streaming?
“If you were to start streaming right now? No. It’s insanely hard. Once you get going and build an audience, you can do well. But everyone hits that plateau. ”
“That had to happen. Just9n said he is a beast right now. I can’t walk him for an hour right now”
Started streaming Islands of Nyne: Battle Royale
“Does this game work now?” (Islands of Nyne) “Servers are live. It’s been a while. It kept my settings, cool. There are some skins that they gave me. Where do I put the code? Maybe I put the code on Steam? Honestly, I don’t care.”
“Oh my god their map looks different, wow!”
“I feel like there are way more trees”
“(Game is lagging hard) I know the game is good, but I can’t play. Holy F bro. It’s only getting worse. I seriously think they got overloaded. I am so shocked that the game is still up. Problems will happen of course. This is the worst. Their whole team should be like ‘shut it down’. Hit the button. (Dies) Stupid… I hope they can fix it real quick.”
“Doc was in your game. I know, I can read” “I’m sad. It should be more polished.” “They tweeted out.”
“If they fix it now, great. If it continues to be a problem then that’s unfortunate. They have ranks for solos, duos, and squads; neat. Change server to EU? Yeah, why not? Might as well give it a whirl. Let’s see how it feels. Oh no (more lag) oh no. haha, oh no… God, I wish. It sucks early access don’t work on launch. I know the core element works great. We just have to wait. It’s impossible to play. Let’s try NA again. This is disappointing. Apparently one of the devs said in discord that it’s a problem with the server, not the game. I’m capped at 250 FPS. I’m chillin. I don’t know what to do? Play something else and wait? I dunno. I’m not streaming tomorrow. Did they fix it? Once they shut down match making my game was fine.”
“I hate how stupid the stance is. I mean really?”
“I”m going to wait. I trust it will be ready in 10-15 minutes. I believe.”
“Did you hit the Diamond level last night? No.”
“I have so many C9 jerseys. I guess I can give them away.”
“I like that there is no leaning. I think the best games don’t have leaning. It’s like a cop-out as weird as that sounds.”
While waiting, shroud hit the test range.
“What the hell my ACog disappeared. That’s a bug.”
“The stuttering has been identified and is an issue with VIVOX, our VoiP provider. We are working to disable it and a Hotfix will be deployed soon. Thank you for your patience!”
“Ah that’s good they found out the problem. I’m ok without voip.”
“I don’t understand Nades in this game, nades are weird. Right-click is underhand. Ooohhh that makes sense.”
P90 spray pattern: “You’re not going to be able to hold that!”
“Is there hit scan? Hit scan at 10m, projectile spawns after 10m.”
“It’s crazy how many issues there are with VOIP.”
“Check out Hunney’s link. If you’re in the L.A. area you can win a ticket to the PUBG event.”
“30 to 60 minutes until Islands is ready so I’m just going to play some casual Rainbow 6. Casual up!”
“I don’t think pubg wants to show how many players for NA, EU, and Asia. I think that ratio is all f’d.”
Played a little Rainbow 6: “I don’t even know where I am on this map, I’m literally running in circles.”
Back to Islands of Nyne.
It works! Well kind of, the zone doesn’t work. You have to wander around looking for people. “The bug is fixed, restart the match. I don’t want to leave with all this loot. They’ve added a lot of stuff.”
Game seems to be running well now. “If you see someone jumping it means they probably know what they’re doing. It’s scary stopping. If you stop you die. Each game is very quick. Top 10 gets a little scary once the zone gets small.”
“You die so fast in this game.”
“Hey I got a crate! At least they have something! What does pubg have? PLEASE TRY AGAIN LATER.”
“I have no problem purchasing this game. $24. Crates are easy to get. There are pretty good skins in here. I like a pricetag on a game. I’m not a fan of free play. If you can’t handle cheaters put some money up. Cheaters ruin games. Epic had that problem, they cracked down on those cheaters. Pubg? Ehh. not so much.”
“My favorite place to drop is Harbor or Lagoon.”
“I like that you can’t hoard items. You can only have 3 grenades, three meds…”
“I feel like the FPS could be better. I swear it was better during the alpha test.”
“Looting mechanics are way better than they used to be.”
“I think 60 players is fine. If you’re confident at your game’s performance is good at 100 players. I think games would do better without 100 players”
“that was close…” And he gets his first Islands of Nyne win for the day:
Break time – take Troy out for a pee…
After break, tried to get back into another IO9 game but the queues were waiting.
“These queues are f’d. Come on let me just play one game here. It’s a little broken. The queues are super broken. You wait more than you play. It’s more competitive BR – like movement and aiming.”
“There’s a lot of loot, good fights. They need to make the start really fast. It used to run better like 2 months ago. It feels ok, it’s not that sick. Like I shouldn’t have 100 frames I should have 230. I just like how smooth it feels like in fights and gun-play. It feels like a serious shooter.”
“Overall I like the game but I don’t think it’s ready yet. Like competitively. Because of its frames.”
More Rainbow 6
“I played pretty good against those Diamond players, I’d say. – A pretty good game for me.
“Are you going to play Rainbow 6 until you’re unbanned? No, I’m still gonna play pubg.”
“I’m pretty sure that hacker got banned for a day. Maybe that was his first offense. He might be totally just be lying just to start shit, I don’t know”.
Here’s his Rainbow 6 team:
ObiMeowKatnobi, HannibalB, Macs_Miller, MC.Jay444, KeiszrG (shroud)
Shroud do you take drugs?
Shroud’s Rainbow 6 Level 66:
“Are you playing in the Squad Showdown tomorrow in L.A.? Yeah, I can’t wait to see twitch chat when I’m playing in it.”
Shroud and Just9n talking about a podcast – Just9n made a sketch of a tide pod and then the word “cast” for the logo. “I think we’re going to get sued.”
Then with OBS in both screens (shroud’s and Just9n) shroud started playing “Bustin” which repeated inception style. (opened 15 youtube tabs playing the same song, then OBS with Just9n).
Ended stream by hosting Just9n
