About 4 months ago, I made a decision to try an experiment. I wanted to change the format of my main channel to showcase a single game, Marvel Heroes. The motivation was the lack of retention for my followers and stagnated growth of my stream. Since then, I’ve had a wonderful time doing this and still love Marvel Heroes.
But, I realized something: This is not me.
I knew in the back of my mind that I loved playing a wide variety of games which is why I left the clause open that I’ll “occasionally play other games”. Sadly, this backfired and people would show up while I was playing something else and immediately assume that I wasn’t a Marvel Heroes streamer. This quickly nullified what I was trying to accomplish. I tried to rectify the issue by creating an alternate channel called “Bwanaplays" but I found that rebuilding a community on a new channel takes time and patience. I could do it, but then I’d be wasting time.
Today, I’ve decided to go back to my original variety format. I’ll be streaming whatever I want to play. This does not mean Marvel Heroes did something wrong or I hate the game. (I did get a tad burned out during the Omega event though :)) I just want to feel comfortable while streaming because that’s when I’m at my best. People know me because of the variety of games that I stream, and I constantly get comments of “I miss you streaming x” or “Why don’t you play y anymore”.
So my little experiment is over. If you’ve been following me, you know that I do things differently from time to time. Sometimes it works out and sometimes it ends up being the next big thing. Either way, I have to adapt and continue on while being myself. Thank you to the Marvel Heroes community for being so welcoming. Special thanks to Nullrage, Rushlock, and DegenTP for being rock solid Marvel Heroes streamers and for expanding your community my way. Also thank you to Gazillion for showing me so much love. I do plan on smashing faces with my Cosmic Hulk and I will definitely will still be a part of the Marvel Heroes community.
Love you guys
