In this tournament, 16 popular content creators teamed up with their viewers for a chance to win a share of the $20,000 prize pool! The tournament finals were cast by massive PUBG MOBILE creators Powerbang and Mortal.
Veiled Shot’s creator name was inspired form a character from League of Legends, Vayne. He randomly came up with this name when he started to stream. He’s enjoyed watching many gacha creators over the years, as well as AhnaldT101 and IWDominate. Even though creating content full-time can be stressful and overwhelming at times, Veiled Shot feels blessed to have met some of the creators he watched regularly. He now gets to share content creation and information with them as colleagues.
“Post a video, then post another one, and then another.”VEILED SHOT
Darth Microtransaction’s creator name is a play on microtransactions ruining gaming. According to him, he was supposed to destroy them, not join them. He randomly downloaded Star Wars Galaxy of Heroes. He explained some basic stuff, which is how he started mobile gaming and content creation. Mobile Gamer and urzzz inspired him. Darth Microtransaction is thankful for the information, guidance, and help he received from Mobile Gamer, Jgigs and others.
“Your most valuable resource is consistency. Commitment to the job is a big part of what we do.”DARTH MICROTRANSACTION
ThesaurusPG’s gamer name originally was Thesaurus Rex, a combination of the words t-rex and a thesaurus. He liked the combination of strength/power (coming from the t-rex) and intelligence/erudition (coming from the thesaurus). Unfortunately, some games didn’t allow him to have a space in the player name, so he had to shorten it to something else. He decided to go with ThesaurusPG, where PG stands for Pro Gamer. Still impressed with the general idea that creating game content can be an actual profession, ThesaurusPG had no idea that it would be his day job one day. He works a lot and does not take many days off. Having a daily schedule that he sticks to, including everything from streams to exercise to personal and family time, works best for him. ThesaurusPG’s most valuable resources are his work ethic, passion, and consistency.
“My piece of advice to aspiring content creators is to create content that you think is interesting, not just for the audience but for yourself. The audience can tell if a creator is thoroughly enjoying the games/streams him- or herself. This makes a big difference.”THESAURUSPG
