Forums - Gaming Discussion - Playing fighting games the rest of your life when your average (majority players) wasting time

I found out the hard way I wasted like 5 years playing fighting games all it did was make me gain 200 subscribers and I'm better than average if you wanna make it to the justin wongs or maximilian dood you cannot be just uploading online matches or combos you gotta have ties with upper management like Maximilian dood working and commenting on Evo tournaments or be an evo champion. there aint no room for players like me above average nor the average even if I do know and uploaded few evo players , maybe I should target not evo players for help and still be an unknown. This niche genre is the most unrewarding mess I experience alot of years. while my average friends who speedrun sonic the hedgehog their channel use to be lower than me in 2012 but they are now bigger than mine it's true I should ignore sort of niche genres like Fighting and visual novels and go back to platformers where I grew faster in subscribers especially Sonic. I'll focus more on Platformers and RPGS from now on and do little of fighting games.

This one Sonic Speedrunner really hurts ,Ultimategamer 6,000 subscribers I used to beat him in speedruns and still do I use to be bigger than him but since he's still playing sonic he's 6 thousand subscribers btw I'm still way better than him and he cant crack top 3 like me in Sonic origins I still have few Sonic Origins world records

I know it's based on demographics , and Fighting games is the low of the low in most youtubers I should do Mickey mouse too? Even my friend Latino1976 started playing Mario Kart 8 more and kinda abit of Mortal Kombat but I only watch his Mario Kart streams and everybody else while the Mortal Kombat one  I usually never watch hes like the biollion of players either high player or average but never made top 3 in major tournaments like combo breaker. I am ignoring most of fighting games and going sonic and yoshi

ZERo129 , I'm jealous of your youtube you barely did much in 6 years only uploaded 4 mickey mouse content , while I'm breaking my back in fighting games I'm 326 subscribers it doesnt make any sence? I guess I have to turn my hard work into going back to sonic and outsubscriber ultimategamer95 who is 6,000 subscibers but I use to be bigger when I met him in 2010 I think 2015?

I don't think doing well in tournaments will necessarily relate to having more Youtube subscribers unless you're absolutely one of the best. They're two separate things. People don't go to a tournament even assuming their opponents have a Youtube channel, it's just about winning and taking the prize money. Justin Wong is one of the best players ever so of course he's popular enough to have a following, but many of the greatest players never even had a channel. As for Maximilian Dood I don't know much about him but I don't think he ever was a particularly great player? I thought he just made it big as a content creator because he puts out a lot of content and has done for years.




I make music, check it out here on Bandcamp, Spotify, and Youtube!

I only just started uploading to YT, myself. Do you actually get any ad revenue from videos like that or is it Content ID'd?



Erm... You shouldn't do streaming/videos to get subscribers, you should do it for fun. Unless you get in the 100k viewers, the numbers really don't matter much.

For what it's worth, you'll get a few cents per 1000 viewers if you try to monetize.
