We sit down with “Excal1bur” in this weeks Member Highlight:
What is the origin of your stream/game handle?

Whats your all time favourite game?
Excal1bur: PlayerUnknown’s Battlegrounds
How long have you been streaming and what made you decide to pursue it?
Excal1bur: I started streaming in late 2017, decided to give it ago on mixer to share my clips of my games. prior I was making content on youtube but I decided I wanted to take a more live approach to my content.
What is your favourite game to stream and which game do you think your fans enjoy seeing you play the most?
Excal1bur: My community is built upon PlayerUnknown’s Battlegrounds. When I stream my community want to see me dominate the lobby with sheer violence but they also like to see a chill approach where we just sit and interact with each other.
What is a typical stream day like for you?
Excal1bur: My typical stream day starts with setting up and confirming all my settings are okay before going live. it includes audio, scenes and green screen lighting. afterwards, I start by chilling with my stream as I tweet or post on discord that I’m live from which we begin playing our games.
What is your favourite part about streaming?
Excal1bur: My favourite part about streaming is being able to share my moments with a community I built.
What do you like to do when you aren’t streaming?
Excal1bur: When I’m not streaming I am either playing in tournaments, working on my own business, attending university or other events. i try to balance life with streaming to maintain a healthy life.
Have you ever met any of your fans in IRL? If yes, what it is like to meet them?
Excal1bur: Yes, I have met several fans in irl and the feeling is great for someone to say “hey are you (such & such) just makes me feel that what im doing is affecting peoples lives in different ways and it gives me great pride when I’m able to meet my fans in person. I like taking the time to get to know the people of my community.
Can you give any advice to anyone looking to start streaming?
Excal1bur: Plan everything, I mean seriously sit down and think about what you want to do and where do you want to be as a streamer. then stick to that path and follow it through, it takes time but with hard work and dedication, you can make it anywhere.
Excal1bur: Shoutout to my parents for all the support they have given me whether it’s helping me buy the stuff I need to stream or the encouragement they give me.
