Live streaming video games is fairly a new idea in the world of live streaming content; however, the future of video game live streaming seems to be very bright.
A lot of creators were quite sceptical about the idea in the beginning, and it was generally thought that the audience would not allow much popularity to live streaming of video games, but the ground reality was completely on the contrary.
Not only the viewers watched these streams, but they also loved them to the extent that the video game live streaming has now become a multimillion-dollar industry still being at its initial stages of progress. Platforms and top streamers are now making millions of dollars every year just by streaming video games.
However, gaining popularity and becoming successful is not as easy and as simple as playing video games. The streamers carry out a wide range of engaging activities in their streams to keep the viewers entertained throughout the length of the live stream session. Streamers have to constantly come up with new ideas, to generate a constant rise in the number of viewers over time.
Here are some of the most successful video game live streaming ideas which can come in handy for creators struggling to generate viewers:
Game reviews are a great option to add a twist to the regular video gaming content. Once in awhile successful streamers get their hands on the most awaited video game and conduct a game review session.
The latest games are very interesting to viewers, and the number of viewers increases by a good margin whenever a review is conducted on it. The live streamer must announce the game review session in advance and advertise the intentions a bit so that the viewers can know what’s coming.
While conducting a review, maintaining a level of suspense can be recommended as it makes the viewers more interested. It is best not to give out any spoilers about the game’s storyline and other important aspects.
Keeping the session brief, engaging with the viewers, and explaining to them about the gameplay would attract more viewers who want to know about certain things before making the purchase.
Giving honest and helpful reviews often makes viewers follow all the gaming review sessions of a streamer.
Showing off the gaming gear is also the most frequent activity of all successful gamers. Every once in awhile they purchase some new equipment and show it to their viewers and ask their opinion about it. A streamer would give a short review of the new equipment, recommend it to his viewers and ask their opinion about it.
There are no specific criteria; any equipment that can be interesting to the viewers can be shown. Streamers usually show new types of equipment such as a new monitor screen, system specifications upgrades, gaming consoles, smartphones, headphones, webcams, and any other interesting equipment related to gaming.
While there is a specific section of tech-savvy audience which subscribes to streamers just to know more about their latest gadget choices, this activity also attracts sponsors who want their products to be shown to the viewers.
Therefore, this idea is a double-edged sword for any video game streamer; it will not only attract viewers but also sponsors.
Whenever there is a halt in the growth of viewers, successful streamers try to target certain genres and types of games to attract specific audiences. For example, a streamer may announce an event and then target certain genres such as action games, adventure games, puzzles and racing games; the streamer will then continue to carry out the next sessions on the same genre. Streamers may stick to one genre or switch between genres according to their popularity to attract viewers who are hardcore fans of these genres.
It is advisable to conduct Q&A sessions at regular intervals along with the usual live chat interactions. A Q&A session can be carried out by announcing the viewers that a Q&A session will be conducted on a certain day. The viewers must be encouraged to post the questions that they would like to be answered. Then out of the received questions, the most interesting questions must be shortlisted and answered on the decided day.
This highly increases a streamer’s interaction with the viewers and allows him to gain a personal-level relationship with the viewers.
Successful video game live streaming creators keep a watch on their most regular and most active viewers. They give a shout-out, acknowledge their presence, and interact with them more, to appreciate their interest in the content. This not only makes the most-valued viewers happy but also makes the new viewers turn more active so that they can interact with you more at a personal level, thus, generating more constant and steady viewership.
To become a successful video game streamer, it is very important to carry out giveaways and merchandise sales. All successful streamers research to find out what merchandise interests the viewers and carry out sales of that merchandise. This way, they make money, promote their brand, and also attract new viewers.
Giveaways are usually carried out with a goal, such as increasing viewers, increasing subscribers, increasing popularity of other social platforms, and so on. Streamers would give their viewers certain tasks to complete and pick out the worthiest few viewers, announce their names in the live session, and send out a gift item to them.
These activities are viewer-engaging and will attract more and more viewers to a channel, make them interact more often as they have a chance to win exciting goodies.
These are some of the most tried and tested ideas with which numerous streamers have made a successful career in video game streaming. Video game live streaming is today entertaining millions of viewers across the globe, and this viewership is only expected to rise in the coming years. This also means that the career future for video game streamers is very bright.

This is a basic guide for the game valorant. The name of the character is Sage. So without further ado, let’s get started.
We will first use the heaven map and share the details. Secondly, one thing you need to keep in mind is to select a wall because we are defenders. Then we will first go towards the A long, especially if it is attacked as you can see in the video and we will make a wall. Once the wall is made make sure you sit at one side of the corner to kill the enemy if by chance they try to break the wall. However, you need to wait for the enemy to come yet be aware. If the enemy is coming through the wall which is in the A long, make sure you cover yourself and attack when needed. Enemy will exhaust the ammo in breaking the wall and will reload his weapon, we can use this as a window to attack him. You need to follow the same procedure while you are going towards the B shot, nevertheless do not forget to purchase the wall. Start making the wall the moment you reach the B long. The best part about B long is the wall is very effective. Once the wall is made make sure your teammates are sitting at different sides of the corner. This way it will be easy to kill the enemies. Attack once the enemy breaks the wall and in the next moment, he will be dead. You will get cover from both the sides since Sage is the easiest character. However, you need to make sure that you are following the right tricks throughout the game.
Next, we will go towards the C long where you will find numerous enemies. Hence, you need to stay aware and play smart. Again make a wall on the C long but remember the enemies will make their way from the B long. Make sure your teammates are at different corners. If the enemy enters from the wall, then the teammate which is near the wall will kill him. If the enemy enters from the B long then the teammate who is at the other corner will attack.
Next, you will see that you have an ultimate ability which is the slow orb. Use the orb to slow the enemy. Doing so the enemies will not be able to make their way inside. Throw an orb towards the A long the moment you see the footsteps of the enemies. Stand at the corners of the A long and attack. Throw the orb towards the enemy. It will make him slow and you can throw fire at him and he is dead.
Next thing is if your other teammate is taking a fight and the enemy is coming from the A long, you can heal him too. Use the E button to heal and the C button to make a wall. In addition to this use the Q button to give a slow orb. However, you can only heal your teammate to a certain extent. He may die if the enemy reaches to him and your teammate is not fully healed. The best part is if your teammate dies you can revive him. Ask your teammate to stay at A long and make a wall there so that no activity can take place. You can give a cover to your teammate. If he dies, you should first kill the enemy and then revive your teammate.
Thus, these are the basic things which you can do in the heaven map.
Now let’s take Sage to the wind map. Go to the A long and we will make the wall in a way so that it becomes easy for you to stay on the top of the wall. Sit behind and listen to the footsteps of the enemies because they will make their way and try to break the wall. Attack as soon as you see them come and make sure to shoot them at their heads. This way they will die very soon.
Now since you are alone and the enemy team will try to follow you with the other fellow members, and do not forget to spray. The moment you see them coming sit at the backside of the portal and attack. Once the first enemy is killed, the other one will try to enter the portal for sure. Kill him the moment he enters inside. After the wall, the portal is the second technique you can follow.
The third technique is the shower. When the enemies will enter the shower, you need to throw the slow orb. The enemies will make their way from the phase. Throw the slow orb while you see them coming. Stay aside. Wait for them to run back and kill them then and there.
The next thing you need to do is make a wall at the B portal. Give a spray when you see the enemies coming. Wait for them to take the portal. Once the portal is with them, they will start firing and break the wall. Throw the orb and attack them. Amidst this do not forget to reload your gun.
Next thing you need to keep in mind is it is essential to play smart. Because there is more manpower in the other team they will try to spike a plant for sure. Make a wall if they try to come from long A and start defusing. The enemies will try breaking the wall. Make use of the opportunity and defuse because breaking the wall will take time and till then your job will be done.
This was all about the wind map.
