His cat’s name is Obi.
After graduating from Staffordshire University with a degree in Computer Games Design, Stodeh went on to work in a pub. During this time, his friends started developing a video game and invited him to join. They worked on the project together for a year and a half but unfortunately, they realized that it was beyond their capabilities.
However, one positive aspect that came from this was that he discovered Twitch, as the four of them would use it as a way to show off their developmental progress. He was amazed at the level of engagement that Twitch produced, as their first ever dev-diving stream attracted 100 viewers back in 2013. This made him aware of the potential that Twitch had.
r fun on December 4, 2014. One of the main motivators for this was that he had just finished building his own PC and realized that it was powerful enough to record and dun a game simultaneously.
Although his channel grew quite quickly, very few of these viewers were associated with his game, as it was a co-op space venture, which had very few similarities to the Battlefield franchise. He enjoyed it and was soon dedicating most of his free time outside of work to his Twitch channel.
However, as the months progressed, he noticed that both his pub work and gaming project were both slowing down, whereas his Twitch channel was growing and becoming more lucrative. This made him recognize that streaming might be a viable career path for him to pursue. When he initially started streaming Battlefield 4, he focused on sniping, as it was an aspect that few others were involved with and grinding the leaderboards. This, combined with the hours that he streamed, helped his channel to grow relatively quickly. This was especially true when he managed to rank first for sniping in the UK and was able to mention it in his stream title. By April 2014, he had received Twitch partnership. He then went fulltime shortly before Battlefield: Hardline was released in March 2015.
His language isn’t always clean.
According to his Twitch overlay, he has around 1,150 subscribers. Therefore, this should net him a base monthly income of at least $2,875 USD. This amount excludes additional income that he receives from tiered subscriptions, merchandise sales, tips, Twitch cheer bit contributions, advertising, sponsorships, and tournament winnings. EsportsEarnings puts his total tournament earnings at over $20,000 USD. According to his Twitch autobiography, he has received over £50,800 ($66,849 USD) from his top ten donators alone.
He doesn’t have a set schedule.
[The key to my success when I was starting out] was a combination of timing, luck, niche and streaming for a lot of hours at a time.
