Considering how often these platforms adjust metrics to stop paying out money, I can't tell if this is a deal or a rip-off.

And that's only after seeing some goofball advertising $900 and $1500 scamimars.

I think it was either coffeezilla or someordinarygamer that just did a video on Blevins masterclass and it's pretty clearly a cash grab from him. Apparently a good chunk of the course is dedicated to him telling you blue hair is the trick, blue hair is how he became a successful streamer and you can too.

Toast was actually mostly referring to another streamer, who dyed his hair blue, and did a 24 hour stream marathon, netting him zero users.

I like Toast and his Among Us videos are fun. Many people think being a popular streamer is just recording a game, it's not. It's running a full improv variety show where the plot is streaming a game.

A stream is just a podcast with something dominating the visuals. Hell, if you want to really piss off old people, tell them watching streams is like listening to baseball on the radio. Radio personalities spend half their time not talking about the game.

However, with the course costing $180 USD per year, some claimed that the series was a 'cash grab' given how there was no guarantee that it could lead to a rookie streamer's success.

So this is like every class in any subject that was ever offered. Of course taking a class isn't going to bring guaranteed success. If you thought you were purchasing a career for 50 cents a day, I guess you might feel like you've been scammed. But you're also a drooling imbecile that was never going to make it anyway.

Recording yourself playing video games and cracking jokes while your friends watched as a career?

In the 90s that was called a sleepover where we rented games and movies and drank all the soda pop in the house. Gen Xers were born 30 years too late. Kids today make millions doing the exact same thing.

I'm not mad because I can stream a video of my bubbling fish pond with copyright free music and make money.

It's not "scared of new things" so much as "not into watching some mugging douche scream at a game for several hours"

But hey man it's your free time.

With streaming it is even worse though.

There are many areas where you can put in effort/education and at least make a living. But for streaming and the like you have to high a luck factor in their success. You can do everything just right and the odds are you will still fail.

It is this generations version of moving to Hollywood to be an actor/actress only to end up stuck working as a waiter/waitress.

I know Disguised Toast...he was a regular in Zabracus and Alkali Layke's Twitch streams. Pretty neat guy.

It's just too bad Twitch turned on their users after the Amouranth-Indiefoxx NSFW debacle...drove a lot of streamers away after that. I'm surprised they're still in business.

At least unlike that, you don't have to put all your eggs in one basket.  With old Hollywood, you were packing up, leaving everything you knew behind, and moving cross-country to a city where you knew absolutely nobody, had no place to live, and had no backup plan.  With streaming, you can still work your regular job as you start your stream.  If it takes off, amazing.  If it doesn't, you're no worse off than you started, other than maybe the cost of a decent mic and recording software.

True, but that ends up making it worse. Less risk of ruin means more try it out, which means the "market" is oversaturated with wannabes trying for fame, and this makes the odds of success even lower, and they were already absurdly low.

This.  Best explanation I've come up with that has made people understand is to compare it to "Whose Line is it Anyway?", only if everyone on stage is both full performer and full host simultaneously.

The points still don't matter, though.

Disguised Toast is still a thing? Cool. I liked his stupid Hearthstone trick decks back in the day. He had fun videos, and gave him props for showing up to video game events that pompously had dress code -- and here's Toast not deviating from his usual slacker look with shorts, T-shirt and flip-flops.

Recall Ninja was on Family Feud a few times before and after he got big. Host Steve Harvey was WTF on how a kid gets $$$ and fame from playing video games; I think he returned on celebrity version and Harvey remembered his family being on the usual show. Didn't play any of the games Ninja did, so don't know how his streaming act goes.

/stopped watching streamers after I quit Hearthstone a few years back. Endless aggro decks and Blizzard overtaking EA as THE fallen angel of the video game industry soured me.

Ninja I'm pretty sure fell off really hard after going to leaving twitch for mixer, only for mixer to shut down.

I'm sure he still has a sizable audience but this is the last pathetic thing I know of him doing

"So you're freeloading?"
"No I'm a YouTuber"
"So you are unemployed!"

Not the exact dialogue but close.

Ya, I have read most of the manga, there are some really good parts. Like how in his stories of the otherworld he will occasionally side step RPG style quests by treating them like obstacles in other genres.
