Thanks for coming to my Patreon page!

My name is Walt, but I go by the tagΒ turndownforwalt in the world of eSports.

I'm a YouTuber who creates content mostly surrounding the Super Smash Bros. series, particularly Melee and now dabbling in some Ultimate. However, I have a pretty wide range of interests including eSports, film, music, and cooking, all of which I would love to incorporate into content for you people!

Since I'm only one guy who also works a full-time job as an engineer, it can be somewhat difficult to produce the types of videos I want without pushing out more regular (albeit lower-effort) content that works better for consistent viewership. Unfortunately, this after-work hobby can be expensive and time-consuming - I'd like to continue to create more regular videos so you know I'm alive (i.e.Β Top 5 Plays and the like), and also work onΒ longer projects that would give you a higher-quality viewing experience.

I've had a handful of people ask me about a way to donate, namely Patreon, and I've never felt completely comfortable with the idea.

I don't consider myself to be someone in a financial hole, so I don't want this to come off as misleading. Creating content is something that I've enjoyed as an unpaid hobby for several years, and I've taken on some paid commissions where appropriate, but I think that sharing a passion through any means is well worth the effort. Though the content may change as we grow, the ultimate goal is to better myself in the craft.

After I get home from work, I spend a substantial amount of time researching, writing, producing, and editing new videos. Patreon is a great service to help sustain this working pace, and allows me to serve you, the viewers, rather than an advertiser or sponsor. I would love to continue expanding the channel to create more content, and I hope to be able to grow the channel into a fun and collaborative community for fans of the Smash Bros. series and gaming enthusiasts alike!

I've set up pledging to be monthly instead of per video, because I don't want there to be any thought that I'll pump out more videos in order to make more money. If you are not in a position to support the channel financially, I still appreciate your interest wholeheartedly. Any YouTube channel could not be successful without an audience, so thanks for sticking around! There are other ways you can also be involved - by sharing videos or even communicating with me via Twitter or Discord. None of it goes unnoticed, so again, thank you!

To patrons, fans, and first-time viewers, thanks for stopping by! I hope you find something here that you can enjoy.

All rambling aside, thanks for reading, and see ya next time.
Tiers
AdBlock Absolution
$1 or more per month

Thank you for the pledge! Β In December 2018, I was re-added into the YouTube Partner Program, which enabled me to monetize some of my content. Unfortunately, this means that content eligible for monetization now has ads, which no one likes to sit through. This tier is for people who use AdBlock, but still want to know they’re supporting the creators they appreciate.

You'll also be invited to the turndownforwalt Community Discord server! Feel free to chat with myself and others about channel updates, video work, or just about anything!

Includes Discord rewards

This tier is for peeps who want to become more involved with the channel and hang out with me in addition to that. Β In addition to the previous tier, you’ll get access to:
