Taugrim’s Stream Reaches 100k Views / 1k Followers


I wanted to share with y’all an exciting milestone. During my 15th session of streaming, my TwitchTV channel cracked 100k views and 1k followers:

With the NDA lift for SWTOR on November 18th, I’ve been streaming SWTOR PVP action every day with live commentary.

Much of the traffic is due to my having access to General Testing, which is a limited pool of people compared to the Weekend Tests – i.e. there are a limited number of people who can even stream at this time.

That being said, viewers have been providing very positive feedback for my stream, and this has been a huge encouragement to me :)

Being a resource to the gaming community has been my passion for 6 years, but until recently it’s been a hobby not a vocation – what I’ve been able to do has been limited to free time outside of work. Recently I made the leap to “give it a go” as a full-time job.

Your support is essential in making this a financially viable and sustainable job transition, and to the extent I do this full-time the more content I can contribute to the community. Therefore here are my asks of you:

  1. Spread the word on social media and on the SWTOR forums, and tell your friends and guildees
  2. Stick around through the commercials on my stream. I want to create a positive viewing experience so I won’t be spamming them
  3. Keep giving me the constructive feedback. In just a week I’ve learned so much from you about streaming and SWTOR

Thank you!

    You do an awesome job Taugrim, and I have no doubt you’ll be a huge success. I’ve been watching your videos for a LONG time, and very much enjoy the live streams.

    I have already been spreading the word, and from what I’ve heard from those I sent your links to, they enjoy it just as much as I do.

    Keep up the fantastic work, and best of luck to you.

    See you in SWTOR!

    I saw your live stream for the first time last night playing your sentinel, and you are doing an awesome job! I find it the live streaming and Q&A between warzones very useful, especially because I plan to roll a Sith Marauder at launch.

    Keep up the good work and good luck in the future!

    Cheers from small Denmark

    I think the best thing you said is that it’s a good thing if your opponents step up their game with your information. So true.

    I’ll see what I can do to get the word out, but my pull is pretty limited to the Eve Online community. Good luck with monetization!

    You doing a great job Taugrim.
    I love your stream on twich, I watch everyday when I can.
    I love your way to interact with us, really polite guy, nice attitue and awesome guides.
    I watch many streams on Twich, but your stream is for sure the best.

    Keep up and you’ll have a great success.

    Cheers from Italy.

    Best of luck for your stream, though it seems you dont need that anymore, since it does really well so soon. Always fun to see you play. I will probably roll Empire on a US Server come launch, maybe we will kill each other someday. Keep it up

  7. dryiggles says:

    I have been enjoying your stream as well as the way you have a good attention for the community surrounding your stream. The chatroom is always appreciative of your effort to answer questions we have for you.

    As well as a more family-friendly mature environment that your provide within your streams really make a great stream to be able to listen/watch every time.

    Thanks so much for your effort and will support you as best as I can.

    Love your streams as well as the community you draw into your chat room. Best PvP commentary and insight I’ve seen in years. Keep up the fantastic work and thank you for your dedication!!

    You deserve this big time ;)

    Congrats Ed!

    I’m stuck in Texas for the week, but I’ve enjoyed the streams after the family has crashed. Sadly I’m missing this beta weekend…

  11. Oozo says:

    Best of luck getting things up and running and making it all viable. :)

  12. Mary Davis says:

    Congrats Ed! Been watching your blog for some time now. I have learned so much from your website and the videos. I have been referring people to you for a long time. Been beta testing SWTOR for the first time this weekend. Hope to see you soon!

      What do you think of the game so far?

      • Mary Davis says:

        Been playing a Jedi Counselor. Like the Survivability and mobility of the character. Might be a viable choice for PVP? Just made Level 10 couple of hours ago. Hoping to hit the warfronts before they close the weekend beta.!

          Sage is one of the strongest classes in PVP at the moment. Good damage, excellent heals, excellent CC, and the targetable bubble. It’s a great choice.

          Shadow also looks very strong, esp if you favor a Rogue-like class.

          • Mary Davis says:

            Actually I had a real difficult time choosing shadow or sage. I liked both options. I tried Alderaan a couple of times before I selected and decided to go Shadow. There are just too many long cooldowns to contend with when you’re in a fight. Was hoping shadow would give me an edge in pvp with that stealth/sneak mechanic and the the “back” attack. At least, until I realized that my light saber is totally visible to the opponents. Talk about a dead give away when you’re stealthing around. Grrrrr…. Let me know where y’all go when the game opens. I’ll come out and play with you. (aka – http://www.twitch.tv/merrylucious)

              Shadow is what I’m trying next when the General Testing servers are back online.

              I am concerned about what you mentioned re: Shadow – it’s ability to either stay in sustained combat or get in/out of combat using stealth.

              I remember you asking about joining the guild over 5 weeks ago:
              https://taugrim.com/2011/10/19/swtor-hutball-warzone-with-sith-inquisitor-sorceror-ny-comic-con-2011/#comment-5325

              We’ve had a lot of requests from folks to join our SWTOR guild, esp after I started streaming. Most are strangers, some are people we have played with / against in other games.

              I talked with our GM about ginvites and we agreed that the important thing is to grow gradually and take time to assimilate new members. Our current thinking is to ginvite people that we’ve known in other games, and start with that as our new member pool in SWTOR.

              Would like to be able to guarantee you a ginvite, but at this point I’m not able to. Hope you understand.

              We’re going to try to pick a “good” server regardless, so if you roll on the same server we can group up.

  13. […] the game – which can make it hard to listen to something else while you play. Like music, or Taugrim’s live streams. I haven’t decided if this is going to drive me bonkers just yet – but I admit it […]

    Really great videos. I love your analytical approach to the game. Quick question: I’ve seen you play a commando, sentinel, guardian, and gunslinger. Any chance you’ll stream other classes before live? I’m extremely interested in seeing a vanguard in action to compare against the commando and guardian.

    Keep up the good work!

      Thanks for the feedback.

      I’ll be streaming Shadow this week. My character is level 7 atm.

      That leaves Vanguard and Scoundrel as the only ACs I haven’t tried. I haven’t played Sage yet, but I played Sorc at NY Comic Con in October and it’s a mirror.

      I am very curious about Vanguard so time permitting later this week I may try that out.

  17. Twizzlar says:

    Hey where’s the donate button? Love your streams although I didn’t know about it until after beta ended but I’ve been watching your past pvp streams. Love your insight during the matches.

    I applaud you for taking a chance and doing what you love for a living. You should look to set up a donate because from all the comments I see I am sure many people would like to. Unless you already have and I just don’t see the donate button.
