How did you get into streaming? How long have you been an Albion streamer?

Over a year now, honestly I can’t remember exactly when I started. I had wanted to get into streaming for a while, and when I started I was more of a variety streamer, playing whatever game caught my eye.

I had been playing Albion for a while however, and had got to a point where I felt I could share some fun content with viewers. With there not being many solo streamers, and none broadcasting dagger antics at the time, I thought it was time to show people that a solo assassin-type playstyle was not only possible, but also a lot of fun, and incredibly versatile.

How is streaming Albion different from streaming other games?

Streaming Albion is hard. It’s a full-loot MMO so there are always people watching who would prefer the easy path to content. I think that’s one of the main reasons we don’t have much streaming content that isn’t instanced. Given the advantage that knowledge and numbers bring, streaming simply puts you at too much of a disadvantage, leading many to stream other games instead, whilst allowing the Youtube scene to grow more prominently.

I’m still here slugging it out, though. I enjoy the game, and the full-loot nature simply brings so much more intensity to the PvP compared to other MMOs. I think that’s one of the reasons it can be so enjoyable to watch these situations unfold live.

Your recent streams have focused on small-group PvP in Hellgates and Black Zones. What is your general approach to streaming? Do you plan out activities in advance, or head out into the world and see what happens?

My main aim is always to PvP. I solo a lot, and run smaller groups where possible. For me it feels a lot more skill-based, and decisions made in every second of the fight count much more than in larger-scale combat. Also, as someone who loves daggers so much, there just isn’t really an option for their use in large fights. I love running dagger pair in a group, and picking out a target to assassinate - it always feels amazing when I come out of stealth to do huge damage on a key role, such as the enemy team's healer.  

Mostly I just head out and let Albion do its thing. I don’t really play it safe. I feel the only way to get better is to take fights I don’t think I’ll win, and try to anyway, leading me to the point I'm at today: throwing myself into outnumbered fights, and often taking victory.

Do you have a favorite stream, or a favorite moment you can share from one of your streams?

Okay so this is definitely one of my fondest memories from Albion. I’ll set the scene:

Four guys were stream sniping me pretty relentlessly, showing up in every zone me and my guild mate were moving through as we looked for smaller fights. They cornered and killed him in a Dungeon zone. I, however, managed to slink away, lose them, and slip into the dungeon. I snuck around inside stealing whatever chests I could, and after around ten minutes I figured it would be safe to leave. That is where this highlight starts:



Any ideas of new content for future streams?

I want to start with some GvGs, and hope to help with the game's solo content by being an experienced player in this regard. Right now I’m mainly doing this through the Round Table, and anywhere else I can. Lack of solo content has, I feel, been a side effect of many of the recent patch changes, but it’s great to see SBI recognize this and take the time to discuss it. As hard as it often is, many players enjoy the challenge of solo and small-scale play.

Do you have any advice or tips for other players who are considering being Albion streamers?

Be prepared to die a lot, haha. Have patience and learn the lessons to find what content you can and cannot stream. There are many ways I have found to keep yourself relatively safe whilst streaming, most of which I am planning on compiling into a Youtube video in the near future.

Anything else to add?

I’ve streamed this game for a while, and played it for a whole lot longer. If you are a new Albion streamer, or thinking of starting to stream the game, feel free to drop me a message through my stream discord. I’m always happy to help anyone with getting set up.

Also a message to would-be stream snipers: be kind to us Albion broadcasters ;) Twitch is a really good draw for new players into any game these days, and allowing them to get on with their content without interruption is a sure-fire way to get new players into the game. I myself have got many players into it and helped them with starting up, as have many of the others. Just keep that in mind before your next excursion into the day of someone who has taken the time to share the game with potential, new, and existing players alike.

Can you share some of your favorite clips with us?

About This Game

Albion Online is a sandbox MMORPG set in an open medieval fantasy world. The game features a player-driven economy where nearly every item is player-crafted. Combine armor pieces and weapons suited to your playstyle in a unique, classless "you are what you wear" system. Explore the world, take on other adventurers in thrilling battles, conquer territories, and build a home.



Craft. Trade. Conquer.
Dive in now and become part of a living fantasy world where everybody matters.

Key Features



From basic tools and clothes to mighty armors and powerful weapons – nearly every item in the game is crafted by players, in player-constructed buildings, from resources gathered by players. Buy, sell, and trade with other players at local marketplaces all across the world of Albion. Craft rare and powerful items, then sell them to the highest bidder and grow your fortune.



With Albion Online's classless combat system, switching playstyles is as easy as switching gear. Test out new equipment anytime and swap out weapons, armor, and mounts to suit any situation. Hone your character’s skills by crafting new items, or by simply using your favorite equipment.



From solo to small-group to large-scale battles, you'll need strategy, tactics and skill to prevail. Test your skills against other adventurers in high-risk, high-reward full-loot fights, and use every tactic at your disposal to emerge victorious.



Join a guild and carve out your own piece of Albion in tactical guild-versus-guild battles. Take over territories for access to incredible resources. Build guild halls and crafting stations, and conquer entire cities to levy taxes and grow your wealth. Track your guild's progress on a constantly-updated leaderboard, and take on leadership roles to bring your guild to new heights of glory.



Claim a city plot or private island and make it your own. Plant crops to sell or craft into food, raise your own livestock and mounts, and place crafting stations for other players to use for a fee. Stock your house with custom furniture and trophies, build chests to store your growing collection of loot, and hire laborers to keep everything at your homestead running smoothly.



From small scouting bands to massive bosses, from dungeons to full-blown faction bases, the inhabitants of Albion’s open world await your challenge. Explore five beautiful biomes, each with its own challenges. Take on six different factions, each with unique enemies that require their own strategy. Partake in solo or group expeditions – or seek out the ultimate thrill by facing demons and other players alike in Hellgates.



Albion Online is a true cross-platform MMO experience. Whether you prefer Windows, Mac, Linux, or even Android or iOS (mobile currently in beta), one account lets you play on all platforms, with all players on a single shared server. Forge alliances with other players worldwide and take part in massive battles to determine the fate of Albion.
