Hey! I have an idea for you! might help your channel out and maybe work out something with it! check out the mmo on my Chanel and you will see what I mean! if you need more information just reply to this!
Good shit Sky seriously. You got the determination and the charisma to make it happen my friend. Go for it. Ive wtched your channel for about 6 months months now and it has and is growing pretty well. keep it up bud.
Honestly man, I think you are making the right choice.... your follower base is decent, and I really do support your decision to quit FreeMMOstation.
I first heard you on FreeMMOstation.... and from there followed you wherever.
So ATTACK gaming is going down the pan too huh?
Watching this video made me sub to your channel, BUT PLEASEEEEE don't put out a video every 6 hours. Less videos with higher views is better than a ton of videos with less views. Work on putting out good content so that you build naturally. Also, be realistic. A full time job is going to take up A LOT of your time and you don't want to burn yourself out. Definitely make sure your life and funds are stable. And i'm not saying don't get a full time job, but it'll definitely cut into the time for your channel and if you start burning yourself out pumping out videos, you're gonna start resenting your channels.
@Skylent I do not have my own channel nor will I ever least nothing with your ambition. However there are people i watch an adore from Jesse Cox to Cynical Brit to Boogie to Defranco to a dozen or so more. An every single you tuber has pretty much said do what your passionate about. Show content yOU yourself like, that YOU yourself are passionate about and the views and subs will come. Of course come games are so mega popular most ppl do it. But decide if you want to do lets plays, reviews, interviews, Q and A's, do you want to be seen, do you want to be faceless, all of these things matter. However, I feel if you do not do that if your constantly just jumping from top game to top game while the views will be there for a bit, in the end people will find a channel with a reviewer who they like, and sees and talks about games as we do or in the 1 sub case he or she does..... So yea to thine own self be true......... what are you passionate about?
Congratulations on jumping whole heartedly into your own project!
However, hearing about the 6 videos a day made me a little bit confused as well as other people commenting.
I've already told you this before once in a stream, I really think you should explore making some short reviews of around 5 minutes to introduce topics and games and sutff like that, to complement videos that are more complete and, of course, longer as well.
Basically, I really think you could have a lot of success with an array of different lengths videos that complement each other, but you know, that's just one subscriber's opinion.
Good luck with this new project anyways, keep the hype! ;)
Skylent, I haven't been here for very long, only joined at about 15k, but I can say for certain you are my most watched and favourite Youtuber at the moment and I love all your content. Good luck in the future, and I hope everything goes well for you. Keep doing you!
Also, as much as I would love to see it, you don't need to upload 4 times a day. You'll get worn out waaaay too fast, probably lose motivation and then just give up - if you want to do loads of uploads, do gameplay+commentary with little editing, something that doesn't require anywhere near as much effort as your normal videos. I'm not saying you can't do (I know you can), but it will likely be really draining after a while. Additionally, I have exams coming up soon and obviously can't revise if you keep uploading :D
Well imo 2 vids a day is waaaayyy too much and youlll eventually get burned out really quickly. 1 vid a day is an amazing achievment in and of itself. Cheers man, proud of you. And yeah i did find you from mmohuts/station
I've been following you for a while. I've liked every vid I've seen, but this is the first one I've commented on. I dig your style as a content creator and I think you got it. As you can tell by my name, I'm looking to get into content creation very soon. Keep doing you yo, and make sure to have fun the whole time. I look forward to more vids, but that every six hours thing.... WOW! If you kill yourself getting to where you wanna go, you wont get to enjoy the fruits of your labor. P.E.A.C.E.
I just don't understand how you have so few subscribers! your videos are brilliant (altho I am not a fan of your streams, but I don't like streams in general) and your personality is great :)
I would love it if you done a few more "series", such as First Impressions?
anyway dude I really hope you make it big and hit 1 mill subs quick :D I'll like as many videos as I can :)
Bro, don't push yourself too hard, you're just "starting".
You have that unique kind of videos and most of your viewers like it.
DON'T CHANGE THAT.
You're fucking amazing, keep going
WE ALL SUPPORT YOU!
KEEP THE HYPE ALIVE!
I think you should start off with a survey or something like that to get some idea as to what your target demographic likes
Me personally, I like some of your controversial videos (around 10 -> 20 mins), something I can play in the background while I gather in BDO.
Not sure if this would work well or not, but if your looking for some ideas why not do something like a Steam Library vid? Where you show people what you have and ask what catches their eye and then create some top lists by genre for people to vote on what they wanna see.
You've done so many First Looks over the years, so why not take a Double Take and see what's changed hopefully for the better.
How about a series dedicated to Truly Challenging Games, Rouge-Like/Hardcore, and/or Games that make people Rage.
How about a "Minigames" series, not playing actual minigames, but like io or other light games where you rate if they are worth an hour or so here and there.
Or something like "Great Games no one Plays" Taking a look back at awesome forgotten games, or games that don't have Hype Train stops, but are worth the Bus Fair.
Game Mechanics/Feature Discussions, along with other topics of debate.
A series that rates if an Alpha/Beta game is worth it's Founders Pack at the time of recording. Along with a look back after changes when possible.
Game Versus Game Vids Taking games that are so similar and putting them head to head to find what one is more fun.
A "What ever Happened?" Series where you remind people of games the fell off the radar and what's going on with them.
A "WTF?" Series where you torment curious people with short plays of games that probably never should have been made while trying to figure out what they were even trying to do in the first place.
Gaming Prank Vids/Clips for when the joke was just to good.
Um... Sobering up, out of ideas. >.<
It's all good man :] hope you make it in the world as yourself :] I wonder if Fallout Shelter would a good game to review, it's sorta very time based though, like you come back every few hours to set up some things and then come back later again, could be good to show it off for others to get into it :0
Don't tell me you are going to keep your "I will do everything" policy because that isn't going to work.
Let your community help you and thank me later.
Personally I would do everything in my might to help you out.
Was REALLY worried you were going to shut down totally - glad to hear you're still going to be around. Found you through FreeMMOStation, but never subscribed to them, only this channel.
Also, not sure if it's your thing, but the way you described the bit about games that don't get enough attention and nobody shares much about them - I'm a *BIG* fan of a game called Concealed Intent, which is really hard to find anything about. It's an amazing turn-based strategy game, but it's gotten none of the attention it deserves.
way to go skylent! Although a vid every 6 houres? i'm afraid your going to burn you out. i think a structured upload scedual is way more effective like 2 vids on that day 1 on that day 1 day off no vids at all etc is gonna get you a lot further. But who am i to decide what you should do, do what feels right and goodluck!
Honestly it's true I used most of the time to watch the videos from free mmo station and because of that I heard your voice and saw your pixel face pop up a lot and I was curious as to who you where then I found you channel and I have been loving your content ever since
You know what, dude? You've got some balls. I like your balls ( ͡° ͜ʖ ͡°) I can respect them. I really want you to succeed now, and I'm looking forward to what you're gonna do from now on. Hang in there, we're with you.
I like your videos so fcking much and I like the way you are brutly honest and cut the bs when reviewing games... I think you should get more views for reviewing the games you do and I realy like the fact that your not scared to review games you know thats not that gona get that much views and just another thing is that you do alot of f2p games...Horay for being poor
Much support here...I have some comment opinions about this...
Maybe rename your channel to someone else for this endeavor (maybe Skylent Games?) Google how to rename a google page or a brand account if not know. Totally suggest making an intro and/or outro vids. And maybe hire an editor to do it. Consider maybe new types of vids every now, an example would be discussions with other youtubers about games.
Don'e be discouraged if you don't see results immediately in a couple months. Some MMO youtubers I subbed to took them a few months before they got noticed, example LazyPeon. (Though I don't know how long he was making vids when I subbed, he wasn't as popular as he was now though.)
Finally advertise your FB/Twitter and channel if you happen to be on someone else's vid. GL!
tbh i feel bad for mmostation.. but i respect your life decision but i think what you really need is a brand name ..skylent is more like a personality and it might not be working (some stuff i learned while taking marketing courses) also you migh wanna focus on quality rather than quantity since you're not big enough now.. if u get bigger then u can get on ign or gamespot or just continue on expanding your brand ..anyway love from Morocco good luck i'll make sure to support you anyway i can in the future!
I think 4 videos a day sounds like WAY too many. Focus on one or two at most, and just keep your upbeat and honest style. As far as what you said about be frustrated by not knowing the content desired by us - I can tell you what I want more of. It is best for me when your research leads me to hidden gems. The big titles can be glossed over in my opinion, there are dozens of sources to learn about any main stream game. The example I think of first was your recent coverage of Wartile. I might have never heard of it without this channel, and now I am getting my friends hyped up to try it. I am SUPER hyped to hear you want to share your Full Sail experience as well as industry experience. Good luck with the whole thing!
