Ghazzy is his middle name.
GhazzyTV was introduced to Path of Exile (POE) through a friend of his from Battlefield 3. He started playing during the Sacrifice of the Vaal patch which released in March 2014. When he was younger, he also used to be part of a band.
Prior to streaming POE fulltime, he pursued World of Warcraft and then Dota 2 with GPG professionally for a while. He played Heroes of Newerth mainly before Dota 2 was released. At the time, he worked as a forklift driver and occasionally goes in to work part-time, when he feels he needs to or could spare the time.
He started uploading POE guides to his YouTube channel for fun in 2014, but unfortunately lost many of them in a fourth-month battle that started in February 2020 after his YouTube account was hacked. His main motivation when he started out was to make himself feel validated for putting in the number of hours that he was into POE.
When he first started streaming, he used the gimmick of starting off with a new bottle of rum and not ending the stream until it was either finished, or he was too drunk to continue. People began joking that he was a pirate, and the joke went on until it developed into his channel’s theme.
He then streaming on Twitch in January 2017. It has since developed into his main source of income.
His language isn’t clean.
His monthly subscriber goal is 500. After Twitch’s cut and the 50+% Swedish tax, this should net him a base monthly income of at least $375 USD. This amount excludes additional income that he receives from tiered subscriptions, tips, Twitch cheer bit contributions, advertising, merchandise sales, and sponsorships.
He doesn’t have a set schedule but tends to stream daily. He updates the information on his discord server.
He suffers from manic depression.
