TwitchCon EU 2019

Hello once again!

 

Writing this blog post to get back on track with the posts.

Anyways! TwitchCon EU maaan.. I.. I was so excited to visit it! It was awesome, not just interacting with big streamers, but the viewers as well. Everyone there was easy going, they would talk to you about everything, be it games.. Things they do on it.. No matter what they streamed, they had one thing in common and that was Twitch.

Sadly we didnt stream a lot due to not having a big power bank, I asked one streamer how did he get his and basicly his answer was.. Gamble it. At luggage check in they can take it in or not its gamble. I couldnt afford losing the battery pack nor paying 80€ for a louggage hold, but what I could’ve done.. Asked my father who brought me and Amey to airport to await and see if they will take it or not.. But oh well, lession learned!

Also, when we came to airport coffee place, I saw Hassan, twitch admin.. Man I wish I talked to him, but didnt want to disturb the guy.

At least we had some recordings on our camera which we uploaded to youtube right here –> https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=iCm4G2yY92Y

Berlin is very similiar to Zagreb, just a bit.. larger but still same ol’ big cities. I cant comprehend living there. Full of grey colors n shit. I prefer dalmatia, the sea and not a lot of people, and everyone knows everyone, true there might not be a lot of things to do in my city cause its small, but you might get bored here. Buts its more of a relaxation, no noises just calm sea and bura.

Also Berlin has a huge ammount of bunnies hopping in city center at night, we were suprised on that sight, like 3 to 4 bunnies hopping around park.

On last day, we were drinking in Irish Pub in Postdamer Platz Arkaden till like 02:00 in the morning meeting streamers and viewers, and then walked all the way to the apartment in Tiergarden.. Like walking through the dark night.. MonkaFrickingS dude. No one around us, just me and Amey walking to the apartment, scary cause you dont know the place, you dont know who lives there what can happen.. But everything turned good. I feel Berlin is a safe city so far from our experience, we’ve met some beggars but they are in every larger city, so nothing new.

 I was quite suprised how diverse Berlin is, thai shops, Halal shops, Iranian shops, Asian shops.. It was like a sci-fi movie town, every group of people has their own place they gather in, quite surreal and unexpected. I could go into small details of how our trip went, but its too long to write 🙂

 

Back to Con, it was awesome, met some big bois it was cool. Took some selfies and I was nervious af. I’m sure everyone is who meets ppl they watch.

What did I get from the TwitchCon? I get to experience how big streamers do it, talking to them privately rather than on stream you see how they think, do certain stuff and make their content, talked to Twitch staff as well, got some contacts for partnerships, guidance and info what they are looking for in a streamer.

 It was fun hanging out with Amey, Eroktic, Skraqueen and others, as on stream so in off stream. 

 

Would I do it again? Go to TwitchCon? Hell yeah, maybe next time I would interact with people more, aka. Network GGX I brought 500 business cards, I left with 495 lol.

 When talking U bahn or S bahn whatever the hell goes to airport.. Well.. airport is on C like its on edge of B and a lil bit in C section.. We bought A and B ticket.. And on the last stop, they came in.. Like someone just told them, hey theres two balkans who didnt pay for C ticket.. Lets fine them! And thats how we sucked 120€ fine lol, but we werent the only group that got fined yikes.

After flying back home, we took Eroktic, Amey and skraqueen to a local mall that had coffee bar while me and papa went home… I left them there, should’ve hanged out with them more but I was tired and sick so wanted to get home and sleep asap.

 Whats next on our plan? We’ll we got cooking streams coming in, we got more exploration as usual we even started urban exploring abandoned schools etc. Next week we’ll visit another abandoned school, so be sure to stick around!

 Basicly Twitch is.. Grind grind and grind. Long hours with good value content. 

 Thank you for being with us on TwitchCon, and till today as well <3

See you around fam!

February Update

Hiya folks! This month was wow.. It was awesome on one hand and great on the other hand!

From 20 days of vacation spent at home due to poor and ugly rainy weather to a last week of rollercoaster of things that happend, lets start shall we?

We had one day trip to Šibenik, sadly due to poor connection of one of the ISP providers Tele2 had apsolutly garbage connection, and I will soon drop it for a better deal from either A1 or T-Mobile, whoever gives a good business deal on unthrottled 4G data.

We had blast in Zagreb, where we met with ZEFYx, AmeysHouse, Tokic, Avaan69 and Duki420, these are online creators from Twitch to YouTube, I’m especially happy to meet one of them, that was Duki420, he has awesome youtube channel and streams as well on Twitch, but is currently under the break, as soon as he finishes the collegue.

These are the streamers I watch often, interact through chat and voice chat, and now I met them IRL, it was awesome, we got well.. Drunk I guess haha, it was fun, definatley would love to repeat it, but next time maybe a bit more carefull. Whatever happend to the stream we shall forget, we all were drunk and yeah.. That doesnt go together haha.

Hopefully next time, we’ll get even bigger gathering, even more streams from Croatia, and throw one big awesome party, hopefully not breaking nothing this time haha

Except of that, Zagreb itself is a big city, has a Million people living in it.. And ofc. a poor 4G connection… You would thought a city of that size would have a good one? Hah, maybe if you are in business deal with one of big ISP providers that is. But I will try to resolve that problem before I go there again. Yes, I have the ability, or free time from friday evening to late sunday to visting Zagreb, in those 3 days during the weekends.

Today we had awesome cooking stream.. We were making scuffed tacos or whatever it was, it tasted bad and cold, I suck as a chef, but my point is to make cooking entertaining, and today hopefully it was… I dont know 🙂 Today I got something that I didnt want, and that was huge donations in $100’s for cam, and thanks to that.. I’ll be able to afford a new camera… Thank you for the awesome support you have shown me through the months and year of my streaming on this platform. Thank you. <3

In two months TwitchCon is happing, and hopefully we’ll go there and stream IRL. Happily we’re not going alone, but I’m not sure of the plan yet, There is farily cheap flight from my city for like 80$ return ticket, which is fairly good, and airbnb sent me 100€ cupon to use, and will def. use it in Berlin.

Why do I want to go to TwitchCon? Well, mostly because of networking, meeting onther people that are interested into same stuff we do, meet new friends and of course, give those 500 business cards aways haha, except of that, not much honestly, its a networking place to meet, greet and find new friends.

I currently have plans for more cooking shows of course, traveling streams and creative streams, podcasts were awesome, I loved them and I’m sure people did too, but somehow.. It gets reptetive? Almost same guests sometimes, same topics.. And after work I’m tired af.

But Twitch wants consistency and numbers, and I can rarely output that.

If you have a few minutes to spare, beyond reading this, which I thank you for, fill this feedback form, its like a minute long just type whatever comes to your mind about our stream, what we could improve bad stuff and good stuff https://docs.google.com/forms/d/13TXgGe5VmBBDKYLGRv13ljbVQ2WOov2TD3d2x5N7xWg all feedback is annonymous, unless you decide to sign your name on it, if you write a good one, I’ll reward you with a free subscription as a thank you for writing one.

Thank you, I hope you have a great and wonderful time ahead of you, and remember

No matter how bad it is, it can always be worse and sun comes after the rain 🙂

Back to IRL after broken ankle!

Bois, we’re back to TWITCH IRL!

And back we are with new channel makeover, we’ve decided to take vaporwave 80’s approach with Cyan and pink as a color of choice, it looks fairly good. Ankle all healed up except of the little part, but its getting better! Today we had IRL stream for 4+ hours, and I promise you longer and better streams! I finally fixed RTMP server and now it works all good, thanks to Psynaps Super Server software which I downloaded and installed on my Amazon AWS rtmp server.

I want to travel around Croatia, but with bad motherfricking weather and snow everywhere I have to put a hold onto that, I can do IRL in my City and nearby island which I will do soon. But starting Feb. I should be good to!

Sadly I’ll be heading back to work starting 12. February, which means I wont be able to do IRL’s during workdays ( Monday to Friday) due to work and when I get back home its already night 🙁 But I can pull off PC streams/cooking indoor streams! So I will travel and do IRL during weekend.

So I’ll make IRL special until the time comes and if comes when Alfy would be able to live of Twitch, or at least have some income that will cover cost of running IRL, 4G sim cards, rtmp server and everything that goes with it. IRL streams are fairly cheap but are investment, and it all depends what kind of quality you want and all expenses of traveling etc and costs. 

Also, podcasts will be run as usual, sadly it takes idea and time to find people for it, and then stress if they cancel etc, its a show, and show requre a lot of work, but hey! I’ll do my best to bring you interesting and new content and bring community together.

We also did IRL stream with GTA V Online theme, with alerts, chat and overlay to look as close as possible to GTA for that interesting look I have yet to see on Twitch, and we will also have radar to show our current position just like in Gta monkaS

Just wanted to update you guys on this <3

Also did some SEO research which will give us a boost from outside of Twitch viewers.

Good luck and thank you for being here!

Love you xoxo,

Update for December 2018

Blog  Updates for TheAlfredSource Twitch for December

Hello! I didn’t write a blog post in long time, so I decided to write one.

Anyways, sadly we missed infogamer in Zagreb and IRL streams, two months+ of not going outside of house is damn hard, but it have me a nice rest from work, and enough time to work on my Twitch channel and networking, I expect to be back to traveling outdoor mid/end January of 2019, from then on I promise I will do my best to satisfy your needs for good content. My goals are to do outdoor content as much as possible, from cooking outdoor, camping and exploration solo and with cameraman for that nice production quality.

We are currently rebuilding our battery pack, sadly there was a problem with it, the problem was that if battery depleted -50%, it wouldn’t output 12v and therefore wouldn’t charge LiveU in same time and wouldn’t have
enough power for DSLR, so we’re upgrading it to 14.4V in 4 series instead of 3 series 12v, and if that fails, we’ll just buy two battery packs from amazon.

 

We have plans to go to Berlin for Twitchcon to do IRL streams, but more about that in future update, as I need to reserve tickets/get vocation from work, which I wont ask for yet.

 

Stream updates:
We’ve joined a Twitch stream team in hopes to network easier and hopefully to progress further and rank up, thanks to 24KBrownMagic <3
We have plans to do the podcast stream with certain people/streamers after Christmas/new year.

 

We have also created page for all balkan streamers we have networked with so far –> Balkan twitch Streamers https://thealfredsource.com/balkan_twitch_streamers/

So our plan is to get back on feet, and go out and stream!

 

 

Thank you to everyone that has followed us so far, subscribed, donated and cheered, you have kept us alive and I will promise you to repay it back in content and entertainment <3

Until then, I wish you and your family, a merry Christmas and a happy and successful new 2019 year!

Love you <3 and see you soon!

Updates for this month

Hello fellow purple army,

I’ve been sick lately more than I wanted, and I want to strangle my throat and rip the spine and replace it with metal one, I hope I will get better soon,

APART OF THAT,

We’ve got additional 4G connection, so that means 2 4G connections from our backpack for that juicy 6k upload and less jittery bittery streams, I’ve done some modding to my backpack, added fan and made some space and tidy inside for battery pack, antenna and Liveu.

Some of you might not like him, but I sent Cx Ice a personal invitation to Croatia in case he visits and offer free place to stay, cause you know, most irl streamers are.. Close to him.. Yada yada. 

And now for the best part,

starting 12.11, Begins 14 days of constant IRL streams, no bs attached. 4 days in Zagreb on reboot, and other days I’ll see what I can manage, I want to visit Dubrovnik and Dragons Landing from that Game of Throne, but considering its 11.th month, It will be a bit.. Less populated and a bit colder, but I dont mind it!

We’ll be staying here in Zagreb:

Damn, it looks absolutely beautiful during night, I can just image some just chatting” content here, hopefully some dates too ^^

I also hope to meet Eroktic in Zagreb, partnered Twitch streamer, but I highly doubt it,but we’ll meet some viewers from Zagreb & other Twitch streamers, also sent email to Reboot Infogamer to give me press pass so I can get some good angles from press only stuff, we also got VIP ticket.

 

I’ve been dieting hard, not eating anything in the morning, only for the lunch, I can feel the abs and fat moving away PogChamp, but I refuse to weight myself cause I dont believe those numbers!

 

I will try to get some IRL content on saturday/sunday, hopefully halloween IRL too with cameraman, but all in time being!

Ps. I’ve made bloody shirt that uses chroma key, so it looks like there is no body in the middle except of blood ^^ Showcase soon

 

Sorry for not streaming recently, I will try to do it more often as soon as I get better.

See you soon, and remember, I love you no matter what, ok 🙂

Update about us, and new IRL content

Good day or night I hope its been good for you so far,

 

I’ve been a bit sick lately, nothing serious just cold and sore throat but we’ll combat that fast, sadly LiveU was causing some problems on IRL we had on Saturday, but I managed to fix it, seems like 4G is not very good.. In the most crowded place in the city.. who would’ve thought there was a need for more antennas in the city center, anyways we’ll continue our IRL grind soon.

With new IRL categories, finding viewers on Outdoor and Travel is much easier than on IRL, but then again, not many do wonder there. I was happy Hyubisama showed me on his stream, sadly I was abit drunk with the few cuba libres I drank and entered that freezer LOL you can find a clip captured by a good girl Doomy93: https://clips.twitch.tv/SlickHelpfulRutabagaArgieB8.. Welp, we can do it!

And now, the biggest news ever!

We will be covering all 5 days of Reboot Infogamer in Zagreb http://www.rebootinfogamer.hr/en/, what does that mean? It means from dawn to dusk we’ll be IRL streaming in capital of Zagreb like none before, we’ll meet game developers, streamers, viewers and most of all, future partners in streaming, that’s why I made those.. 500 business cards lul. Hopefully, the Infogamer will give me media pass and access to Press only stuff ^^

The event will start on 21.11 till 25.11, but we have 14 days off work, so we’ll grind that IRL even more than before!

 

Our cooking show Scuffed and Stuffed will of course be still a part of our The Alfred Source franchise, and we are working hard to decide what to cook, and how. New cooking locations are in bound with aribnb’s we rent in Zagreb, I feel bad for their kitchen haha, but I promise I will clean them and wont f*d up.

Oh I also forgot, we will have a tuxedo for the streams, like a professional broadcasters, aint no scuffed reporting here, sadly I bought a smaller one cause it was on sale.. Hopefully in 2 months I lose so I can fit in it! 😀

 

I wish you all the best, and good luck fam!

 

Thank you for being here <3 🙂

ps. I love you all.

New IRL equipment for streaming

Hello, so we’ve got LiveU Solo!

 

That’s right! That is best encoding hardware for streaming on market that big streamers like Reckful, IcePosiedon, Andy Milonakis & GreekGodx use, we’ll be using it with GX85 which is 3/4 camera, better than Gunruns backpack camera, for IRL streams through Croatia. We’ve also made 31,200 mAh 12v battery for LiveU Solo, so we’re able to stream for longer hours. Starting today starts the real grind, We’ll be doing IRL streams often and going to try to get the best possible quality and content. See you soon on Twitch.tv Twitch.tv/thealfredsource

Check us tomorrow, as I will try to get myself to an island! Hopefully there is 4G connection! If not, I’m going back the same ship I came with!

Testing new waters.. Cinemagraphy

Hey, so we decided to start some film making.. Yeah.
We’re trying out filmmaking as indie and solo camera/actor for now untill we get some $/freebies to act in our films.. Starting this Saturday 11.08, I will post some updates and instagram photos from movie set, we’re basicly ready to record, we got props, script laid out and ready to kick some a and b frames. Our first.. Yeah our first ever movie will be called The Croatian Eagle and will be premiered on Twitch on twitch.tv/thealfredsource as soon as it is ready to be published. We’re trying for 15-30 minutes long for start. It is a comedy james bond type thing that I hope will work out well, I have studied the cinematic movements & directing.. So why not?! Lets have some fun and create!

About our 50-100$ bet, yeah the one where we’re supposed to hit traning a month without giving up is almost done, I can proudly say.. Exercising is my new best thing ever! Your body changes and you can see and feel that change it is amazing, cause you know you are doing something for “yourself”, to be better in future.. And to be “fit” and sexy for that Black panther suit–>Black panther suit  haha, but that will take a year or so 🙂

 

Guys, I will see you soon, thank you so much for being loyal and check us often, I’m sorry due to lack of streams, tiredness from training & diet hits me hard.. It will be better, I promise <3

Where’s the stream Alfred?

Well, Uhm.. Hi!

Sadly I have been down and up and couldn’t get the courage to stream these days, as in I don’t want to just walk around city and play games..

I want to be creative and have fun, mindless walking is boring after you’ve done it countless times, true I could visit another city and stream there but sadly connection is not always acceptable.

But we upgraded with new Netgear mimo antenna, which doubled if not tripled the upload speed but with tourist in hordes stealing my 4G I cannot have good upload.

But I will try, I will try and find new content to create. I love to do cooking streams, so I will have more of those in future, especially since I have “good” upload of 5-6 ups and good camera that is connected to PC to stream from home, but outside I’ve only got my phone to do the job.

I will be honest and tell you the reason what I haven’t really streamed.. I restarted my schedule for stream, got into training which makes me tired fat boy, and then.. The emptiness of Twitch chat when you stream, but that’s the con of being a small streamer and I will get over it 🙂

I’m  actively working on promoting Instagram with marketing guy and website improvements.

And once again, sorry for not streaming often last days/week.

See you guys very soonish-!
