World of Warcraft (WoW) has been one of the most popular massively multiplayer online role-playing games (MMORPG) for over a decade now. One of the biggest trends in recent years has been streaming popular games online, and WoW is no exception. In this blog post, I’ll explain why WoW players should consider streaming their gameplay.

Building a Community

Streaming your WoW gameplay allows you to build a community of followers who share your interest in the game. These followers can provide encouragement, support and feedback, shaping your skills and interests in the game. Making new friends, meeting new people and sharing game strategies are all positives of building a community through streaming.

Generating an income

Streaming on platforms such as Twitch and generating an income is a huge draw for players. While it’s not as easy as turning on a camera and pressing “stream”, it can provide a substantial extra income. Streamers can generate income from ad revenue, sponsorships, donations and subscriptions amongst other things. More viewers could mean income, so the better the content, the more earning potential.

Improving Gameplay

Streaming your WoW gameplay can actually improve your skills. While some people call it backseat gaming, constructive feedback from your community may help to bring improvements to your gameplay, so you become a better player.

Additionally, having recorded your gameplay, the ability to review your stream and therefore your gameplay could help immensely in getting better and hopefully reaching your gameplay goals faster.

Sharing Knowledge and Experience

WoW is a massive game, and not everyone can have played every part of it. Streaming one’s game can help that community of followers to learn new things and gain better insight into the game. Players with experience can use streaming as a teaching experience too. This is a win-win situation, since players can broaden their knowledge and expertise on the game, while helping others become more invested in WoW.
