Streaming games is a difficult business that requires a lot of energy and effort, but even if a person puts in all of himself, this is not a guarantee of success. The vast majority of streamers never become popular enough to turn this into a mainstream activity. To be watched by thousands of people, subscribed and supported by donations, you also need a decent dose of luck. Moreover, even if a person has already succeeded in another field, this does not guarantee him fame in the field of streaming.
An example of this is rapper T-Pain, who in his own skin realized the difficulties of attracting viewers to his streams. During a recent Twitch stream, he complained that he is not even close to the numbers that popular gamers are collecting and considers himself a “little” streamer. When one of the viewers pointed out that T-Pain is not small at all, the millionaire musician replied:
xQc has just done a conversational stream with 90k viewers, and after that I’m not a minor streamer?
He also remembered other top streamers, gathering thousands of viewers, even at irregular times. However, it is too early for T-Pain to get upset because he only recently started streaming. The rapper first appeared in the music world in 2005 and helped popularize autotune. In addition, he received two Grammy awards.
Basically, the number of its viewers varies between 1000 and 2000 people. Although this is not a record, the numbers are quite respectable. In addition, he already had an extremely successful career, for which he earned more than 99% of streamers.
