Fortnite professional player Morgausse has revealed that he finding it difficult to perform at a high level on stream.
Morgausse rose to fame when he won the $250,000 Fortnite Summer Skirmish event at PAX West, and used his success to launch his streaming career to the next level.
However, the Fortnite champion has taken to Twitter to say that he is having a hard time performing to the level he’s capable of while streaming.
He’s also concerned with his mentality on stream, tweeting; “struggling to keep a positive attitude when underperforming on stream, other streamers have any tips? Hate letting out negative vibes when people are watching.”
For people who are new to streaming, it can be hard to get used to the idea that thousands of people are watching your gameplay, and critiquing it live in your chat. This can put immense pressure on streamers to play at their best, even though that’s not always possible.
Streaming on Twitch can also serve as a distraction from playing. Twitch streamers like to communicate with their viewers in chat, but constantly reading and responding to chat may stop them from fully focusing on their game.
While Morgausse may be concerned that he isn’t playing to his best ability while streaming, there’s no doubt that he’s an extremely talented Fortnite player.
He beat out some of the biggest names in competitive Fortnite, such as FaZe Tfue, Liquid 72hrs and NICKMERCS, to win the PAX West Summer Skirmish and take home the massive prize pool.
With Morgausse’s incredible skills, it’s only a matter of time before he is able to strike a balance on stream.
