I started playing Diablo II when I was 13. I actually told my teacher one day I was sick and threw up in the bathroom. So I could be sent home to enjoy slaying demons on my Whirlwind Barbarian. I also found the Bloodletter that day and I thought it was the coolest thing I ever found in the game at the time. Shortly after I went on to also play Dark Age of Camelot with my brother. The greatest PVP MMORPG of all time. After DaoC my mom purchased World of Warcraft for my birthday in 2004. Since she knew I loved Diablo II and it was a Blizzard game. I spent most of my short years in High School playing Diablo II, Vanilla WoW, and Halo 2. I had a few interventions over the years from my friends and family that I was throwing my life away. I always thought you know I'm just playing games. As a young teenager, I could be doing far worse things. I always had a passion for games but when I was younger I wanted to play in the NBA and it was my dream. But as I got older I slowly grew apart from it to have a passion for playing games. In the early 2000's there was no YouTube or Twitch. I had AOL Instant Messenger and later on MySpace. I started playing Halo 2 quite competitively and looked up to Halo Pro T-Squared on the team Str8 Rippen. I thrived to be an MLG pro player. I was too young and ignorant at the time to do what it really takes to get that level. In 2006 I found a love for Gears of War. I played non stop and eventually landed on the world ranks of the top 100 players in the execution playlist. But just being at a worldwide rank wasn't going to land me a free spot on an MLG Team. I built up quite a reputation for myself in the Gears of War community but it was difficult to find players that wanted to take their talent to the next level. I juggled between Diablo II, Vanilla WoW, Halo, and Gears of War for many years. I started making YouTube videos in 2015 and started as a Gears of War Remastered montage player. I had an insane 8 streak headset clip that was all together almost impossible and never seen before in Gears of War Montages. I thought my montages and this clip was going to finally get some recognition for my skills. I struggled to get anyone to watch and I was lucky if I could break 300 views on a video. At this point, I didn't really know what to do since it felt I had such a passion for gaming content but with no one to share it with that cared. I always went back and forth with Diablo 2.I never quit the game I just took breaks for months or even years. But when I got into D2 I was all in for months. I got on some good old D2 and I searched YouTube for content on the game and...There was nothing. No content creators nothing. A few speedrunning Twitch videos and that was it. There were the good old Craftchest and Gorebag videos from back in the day. I was blown away no one made content for Diablo 2. So I started doing it myself. The first few videos started to get some attention stemming out to a total f 30,000 views and I was pumped. Finally, I have an audience! I was very new to creating videos and I even cring to this day with my slow talking and video editing skills. It was enough to present what I wanted though. Eventually, my 8th Diablo II video went on to be my most viewed video of all time. The 10 Rarest Unique Items in Diablo 2. It now has over 500,000 views and I truly believe without sounding like I am full of myself. That this set the standard for new age Diablo II content on YouTube. I started doing all sorts of content that I never could understand why no one thought of it in the first place. 100 Boss Runs, Top 10 Items/builds and so on. It is weird how things have played out. I never thought a game I played when I was 13 was going to financially support me through my late 20's. I had many ups and downs throughout all of this and even to this day, it can be an uphill battle. I'm just glad you all enjoy my content and this is where you can read part of my story.
Thank you for the support. I love you guys.
