He has two cats, Aria and Gnome.
His girlfriend’s name is Dalya. People call her Dali and him Robi, so he took their nicknames and combined them into Drolby_ when he was creating their channel. He did this by alternating between each letter of their nicknames. This formed Draolbii, which he then condensed to Drobly.
Drobly_ grew up in Croatia and started playing video games when he was around fourteen years old, with his first title being Call of Duty 2. He loved it and put over 5,000 hours into it while he was growing up.
He decided to leave Croatia when he turned 18 due to the extremely low pay that workers receive there. He therefore moved to Germany, even though he couldn’t, and still cannot, speak the language. He slept on the street for a while until things eventually worked out for him.
A couple of years later, he met his girlfriend. She is also Croatian. As she was still living there and had another three years of university left, they decided to do a long-distance relationship and to spend time together via YouTube.
Prior to doing fulltime content creation, he was working for BMW, where he was earning around Є2,500 per month. This is why his parents were originally against his pursuing a streaming career. However, once they realized that it was paying off, they became supportive of him.
He and his girlfriend originally intended to play games together and upload them to their channel, but instead he wound up playing games while she created his thumbnails. He originally started out uploading Dead by Daylight (DBD) videos to YouTube in March 2017. A couple of them even went viral. He later switched over to Fortnite when he got bored with DBD.
He only began livestreaming on Twitch in April 2020. He does swear occasionally.
According to his Twitch chat bot, Drolby_ has around 175 subscribers. As he usually attracts around 600 viewers, this should earn him a base monthly income of at least $437.50 USD. This amount excludes additional income that he receives from tiered subscriptions, tips, Twitch cheer bit contributions, advertisements, and sponsorships.
He doesn’t have a consistent schedule but tends to stream several times per week.
