Streaming star Tyler ‘Ninja’ Blevins has given aspiring streamers some advice on why they shouldn’t try playing popular games like Fortnite right away.
As streaming has become a legitimate career in recent years, there have been many people who have plunged headlong into starting a Twitch and YouTube channel in hopes of achieving massive success.
While the majority of streamers won’t emulate what Ninja, xQc, Valkyrae, and Pokimane did, there’s a place for most – provided you find your niche.
Even if you have really good skills in a game like Fortnite or Warzone, Ninja has urged wannabe streamers not to dive right into the biggest categories.
The Twitch star, who has been dominating Fortnite again since the Chapter 3 update, offered some advice to new streamers, particularly on how to get started.
“Unless you’re one of the best players in the game, it’s important to start with a smaller game that has a smaller, tighter-knit community when you start streaming and trying to build a brand from scratch. ‘ he told CNET.
Ninja noted that this path will prevent new streamers from being “buried” in the game’s directory page, especially when it’s as popular as something like Fortnite. “They can work on building your community and are much easier to find on a smaller game stick,” he added.

While it may seem like simple advice, it’s something that many streamers still don’t follow. Just scroll through the pages of Twitch on Fortnite, Warzone and Valorant and you will find many talented players without viewers.
Of course, you can grind and prove yourself in pretty much any game, but that hard work pays off faster when you get a better foundation to start with.
