Bravado Gaming professional, Fortnite Streamer and athlete, Tristan Rens has called on eSports players to concentrate on streaming and the creation of eSports content in the eSports industry, if they want to make a name in the industry.
Video game streaming is one of the essential areas in eSports that allows fans to get closer to the action. It also helps pro gamers and entertainers to make some extra income.
Today, many eSports players, teams and organisations use streaming to grow their fan base and exhibit their potential to attract sponsors. It’s not uncommon for organisations to have streaming divisions or for brands to work directly with them as a consequence of their potential reach.

Tristan Rens “Zozu” revealed in an exclusive interview with JbKlutse.com, he revealed that streaming and eSports content creation provides a platform to showcase your personality and talents in the game.
But although Tristan Rens “Zozu” believes that streaming and the development of eSport content contribute to the building of player’s reputation in the industry, he has encouraged players to be consistent.
“I think in the current stage of the scene around the globe streaming, and content creation as a whole is the most valuable asset an eSports player has, especially if someone is struggling to get their name known.
“It gives you a platform to showcase not just your in-game talent but your personality. He indicated that “It gives an eSports player a place to create a reputation and build a brand name”.
“Good attitude and consistency, you can’t have one without the other, a good player realises that they are playing a sport and treat it with the same respect”.
Tristan Rens “Zozu” further revealed that it is tough cumulating streaming and participating in eSports. He believes making a living in eSports as a pro gamer, one must be compete consistently in tournament.
“It’s a tough thing to find the balance between the two as I’ve found it more difficult to focus on the mistakes I make in my games and improve. I try to keep my streams as entertaining yet competitive as possible with a few hours a day set aside to focus on my mechanics.”
“That’s the tricky part, earning a living as a gamer in South Africa is still a dream not yet achieved, the industry is still too young to fund salaried “pro gamers”. The best way to earn money as a pro gamer at this stage is to compete and place consistently in tournaments. And work on a stream or some content of value to source some income.
Tristan’s dream is to be a pioneer in African eSports and help showcase the talent that is hidden in our continent.
