Animesh Agarwal on a successful career as a player and Entrepreneur
Animesh Agarwal, also known as the 8-bit Thug, is one of the most well-known personalities as well as a professional player in the Indian gaming industry. Apart from being a professional player, he is the founder of 8bit creatives and the co-founder of S8UL esports. Being an avid player, he has also been handling his talent agency, which mainly supports and identifies excellent players, and the S8UL esports organisation, which performs in numerous international tournaments. Animesh Agarwal stated how there are separate audiences for a streamer and an esports competitor. He also tweeted his opinion on audiences’ expectations from a competitive streamer and their tactical gameplay. On the other hand, he showcased concerns and understanding of the segregation among audiences for the two types of players: a streamer and a competitor.
What is the difference between the audiences of a streamer and a competitive esports player?
There are mainly two types of players: one plays the game to stream and have fun, and the other plays the game competitively. For example, two of Animesh Agarwal’s team members, Mortal and Goblin, play BGMI. However, among the two, only Goblin plays BGMI competitively. The audience base of Goblin prefers to see the technical understanding and intense gameplay that he has. On the other hand, the fanbase of Mortal focuses on the stream and just enjoys his gameplay. Therefore, there is definitely a segregation among audiences of a streamer and a competitive esports player.
