While he was in middle school, he usually used the name ‘scarred4lyfe.’ When he was older, he wanted to adapt it to a name that was short and easy to remember. He therefore just stuck with ‘scarr’ and added the ‘a’ at the end.
Scarra has been gaming since he was a kid.
Scarra started playing LoL after its official release and quickly moved up the ranks in solo-queue. He soon received friend requests from many top-tier players, including Locust, who knew him from WoW where he was also one of the top PvP players. He, ranbonewegg, samtheham, Naryt, VoyBoy and Araragi formed a team to compete in the 2010 Newegg Winter Winfest tournament. They defeated CLG in the first match, although they lost overall.
It was then that Scarra realized that he could potentially compete on a competitive level and pursued LoL competitively from that point. He began streaming on the side in 2012, but it was only in 2014 that he chose to focus on it as is primary, although he does still ocassionally participate in official tournaments with imaqtpie.
He and his manager, Chris Chan, in 2017. They were motivated to create the house, as they felt that it would be good to live with other streamers in a space where they could create their own content, as well as group IRL content. They therefore tried recruiting a few streamers, starting with them Based_Yoona and Pokimane. The other members were recruited along the way, with both Yoona and Chan leaving within the first few months.
His parents came round to his streaming career choice when they realized how much he was earning from it.
He is estimated to have over 3,600 subscribers, which would generate him a base income of $12,600 USD per month. This is before he receives additional income from donations, tiered subscriptions, offline.tv earnings, Twitch cheer bit contributions, sponsorships and advertisements.

I don’t think everyone should be a streamer. If you don’t want to stream, don’t stream. Especially if you’re a pro-player, focusing on your pro-play is more important than anything else, which is why you don’t see a lot of pro-players stream.
One of the difficulties of being a professional streamer is that it’s easy to get caught up in the numbers and equate the number of viewers with one’s value as an actual person.
