1. What is the story behind your twitch channel name?
I had a friend in college who would call me natat and it just stuck I guess. It wasn't available just by itself so I decided to add some random numbers. natat808 was available on every platform so that's what I chose!
2. What is your video game history/background and all time favourite game?
I grew up mainly getting my video game fix from my cousins and friends. My parents hate video games and the only things we had were a few educational computer games and our gameboys (just to keep us kids occupied).
Eventually I was able to afford to buy my own gaming systems and now I'm hooked! My all time favorite game is definitely Overwatch.
3. What/who inspired you to start streaming?
I had a group of friends that encouraged me to start streaming because they thought that I'd do well.
4. When did you start streaming?
I started streaming around Fall 2016 took a break and really started streaming regularly this past summer.
5. How did you find the first few weeks/months of streaming? (any funny stories/mistakes/highlights?)
I was trying to stream and game from my MacBook Pro which is terrible terrible quality and I was limited to what I play. I tried to focus more on the interaction than the game play due to it being so bad.
I eventually upgraded to my gaming pc but those first few months were a struggle.
6. How did you grow your stream? How did you network?
I grew my stream by building friendships with others, supporting their streams. Using Twitter and Twitch to network.
7. What has been your proudest moment while streaming?
My proudest moment was probably when I was raided by someone that I had never met before. She brought in about 30 people. Said she found me on the Twitch directory which is awesome.
8. How did you find the technical side of streaming? Setting up your stream, etc?
Setting up a stream can be difficult. I don't think you'll ever have it perfect either. It takes a lot of time and effort to make sure everything is how you want it.
9. What do you enjoy most about your streaming career
I love meeting new people, having new folks to play games with that enjoy the same things.
10. What don't you enjoy so much about streaming?
Streaming is time consuming. It's like having a job. Sometimes I wish I had more time in my day to stream.
11. What are you short term and long term goals for your stream?
Short term: continue to grow, go to Twitchcon
Long term: have a regular streaming schedule
12. What advice would you give anyone looking to start streaming?
Be yourself! Stream because you love the game not because
you want attention or views or follows. Otherwise you'll be disappointed and it will show.
13. Finally, what other streamers do you enjoy watching?
Oh man. So many to name.
puj33 is an amazing streamer if you want some inspiration.
Some of my other faves are: nanodill, tjayy25, captainwardi, itsmaddenbud, brandibaby, letspokey, warbreakertv, misssweettea, kyr0ki, and so many more.
