Twitch Spotlight: 10 Questions with Warwitch
By: Bill “SwordandKeyboard” Owens | Reads: 1247
Welcome to ‘’Twitch Spotlight: 10 questions’’ My guest is WarwitchTV. (http://www.twitch.tv/warwitchtv) As of April 2016 Warwitch has over 24,353 followers and about 604,116 views and climbing as word gets out about his channel.
I find it hard to describe the raw emotion of Warwitch’s twitch show into words. It really is an interesting show, first night I viewed I was really intrigued how he could get people worked up without much game play, but through music and words. Really difficult to figure out how to convey that in this article.
My best explanation: It is a show on twitch that feeds on the chat interaction with the host, center stage, and people love it. Definitely shows in the chat box as the box scrolls with icon pictures and conversation, almost the feeling of a sporting event with the game tied up in the last minutes.
Thank you for taking time to do this Warwitch. I found your channel one night through the Viking_Barune’s twitch channel and thrown into a revved up excited chat channel ...
Thanks for taking the time to visit my stream! I really enjoy meeting new people.
Channel Description in Warwitch’s words?
Many people describe me as a hype streamer. I’m all about putting on a fun show for my viewers to enjoy. I showcase energy, music, excitement and gameplay. I always focus on providing a positive experience. I’d like to think WarwitchTV is a very strange and fun alternate reality.
As a child, Involved with acting or sports?
I was always a bit reclusive as a child. I never really did get into sports or traditional acting, however I did spend a lot of time playing games like Dungeons and Dragons. For many years I was a Gamemaster for Warhammer Fantasy Roleplay. I attribute that experience in helping me develop the persona I use ON AIR.
Any hobbies outside of gaming? pets, fishing, camping, cooking?
I’ve always loved movies to the point that I’ve built a replica movie theater in my house. I also enjoy reading and working out to stay fit.
What is your hobby of star wars roleplay? How did it start and explain?
Star Wars changed my entire life when I first saw it in theaters in 1977. Ever since I was a little kid I wanted to be a Stormtrooper and now I am. I am an active member of the 501st Legion, a Star Wars charity organization whose main purpose is to bring happiness and joy to children and their families.
How long have you been gaming ? Has it always been on the PC?
My entire life! I remember when the first video games ever appeared in the small town I lived. I’d spend hours playing Asteroids, Pong and PacMan. I had a Commodore Vic-20 at a very early age and I’d spend days programming my own games.
Does your family take any role in production of your stream? and how so?
My amazing wife, Fraulein Natalia, appears from time to time to help me celebrate big events. She’ll dress up in fun costumes and dance around. She’s very supportive of what I do. My super awesome stepson (he calls himself Natewitch) likes to join the hype on stream too! He’s a great entertainer.
My personal favorite charity is Hospice, Do you incorporate any charity into your online presence?
I do all of my charity work through the 501st Legion and Star Wars costuming. It’s very rewarding!
How do you feel about your channels viewers?
Without the people who spend time in my channel, my stream would be a shadow. I feed off the energy and enthusiasm of those who choose to spend time with me. The entire show is really a reflection of those around me and how we interact together. I’m very grateful to have such an outstanding community.
Did you have professional training, college or broadcast school?
I’ve been a DJ and broadcaster for many years. I began DJing (spinning music) in nightclubs when I was 15. I began exploring video game broadcasting in 1999 and was one of the first people to ever broadcast Esports on the internet.
What do you love about life?
I love creating things for others and myself to enjoy. I also love making people smile and laugh. Life can be amazing with the right mindset. I try to always see the good around me.
If you were a tree what kind of tree would you be?
Something elvish I think. Maybe a Mallorn?
