He has two sisters.
He thought it sounded cool when he created his world of Warcraft character when he was in his teens.
Empyriangaming was first introduced to video games when he was in his grandparents’ pharmacy when he was five years old. They had a PC there that has the original DOS version Prince of Persia on it, so he started playing it. He continued playing various other PC games such as Age of Empires 1, Commander Conqueror On, Red Alert On, StarCraft, Warcraft 2: Tides of Darkness and other strategy games.
As a teenager, he moved on to primarily Blizzard games, although he did play other games such as Dota 2 as well. He tried out Path of Exile (POE) during its early years after watching NL_Kripp's streams but soon lost interest without even making it to endgame.
After high school, he went on to study English and Translation and Interpretation at university but dropped out during his third year.
He started streaming Diablo III on Twitch and uploading to YouTube in August 2014 and went into fulltime streaming soon afterwards. He grew fast enough to receive Twitch partnership in February 2015. This was largely due to group rank 1s and Barbarian on the leaderboards. However, over time the player base shrank, and he began searching for something new. He therefore decided to try playing POE seriously during the last week of Essence league, which ended in November 2016.
His goal was to finish to endgame as soon as possible in order to see what it was really about and fell in love with it. He has been maining it ever since, although he does do variety streams as well now.
According to Twitchstats, Empyriangaming has over 2,000 subscribers. As he regularly attracts over 2,000 viewers, this should generate him at least $7,000 USD per month. This excludes other income that he receives from tiered subscriptions, donations, Twitch cheer bit contributions, advertising, and sponsorships.
Daily: starting 13:00 – 16:00 UTC onwards for between 6 – 10 hours.
[If you want to grow in the POE community,] try to be very interactive… Not necessarily all the time to the point that you’re annoying.
