It is his middle name. It is pronounced ‘Uu-dah’.
Prior to discovering Brawl Stars, YdeGaming played football during much of his free time. He also played a lot of Clash Royale and other Supercell titles. He then decided to try out Brawl Stars when it released in early 2018 and found that he preferred it.
After graduating from high school, he decided to take a gap year before pursuing tertiary education in order to attempt a fulltime career in content creation and professional Brawl Stars.
He began uploading his Brawl Stars Content to YouTube in September 2018 by screen recording the videos on his iPad and then editing them. He later started using his phone to record his face during his gameplay.
He first entered the pro-Brawl Stars scene in early 2019 when he and his teammates won the Red Bull M.E.O ESL tournament together with xImSkYRiiKZz and their other teammate. He and SkYRiiKZz then went on to compete in many other tournaments together and eventually joined PSG Gaming, where they remained for the remainder of 2019. They were then signed on with SK Gaming in March 2020 and remained with them for a year.
He started streaming on Twitch in June 2019.
His parents have always been supportive of his career choice. He has two sisters and three brothers. He has two guinea pigs, a dog and a cat.
According to YdeGaming’s Twitch chat bot, he has around 45 subscribers. As he generally attracts around 800+ viewers, this should generate him at least $110 USD per month, excluding additional revenue from sources such as YouTube, tiered subscriptions, Twitch cheer bit donations, tips, sponsorships, tournament winnings, his team salary and advertisements.
[If you want to improve,] Practice makes perfect. The game doesn't have a big technical skill gap, mostly it comes down to game knowledge and knowing what to do in different situations. In the end it's a team game and the biggest difference between good players and pros, is the ability to work together and utilize the synergies between different brawlers.
The best way that I started growing my channel was through collaborations. I didn't have a big following at the time, but the things I did in Brawl Stars was a great 'clickbait' (like pushing Spike 1,5k trophies) for a lot of big creators in Brawl Stars.
