Musings of a Multiboxing Noob

Confession...

Rate this Entry
I find it strangely addicting to watch live streaming broadcasts by multiboxers. I've been known to make some popcorn and sneak into a few different Twitch channels to lurk for a bit. It's like being a stalker, only less creepy.

It really doesn't matter what game I watch people play -- all of them are insane to watch. Multiboxers can do some pretty amazing stuff, and they all seem to be so good at what they do. I watch in fascination with a tinge of jealousy because I could never manage to control that many characters that well. No wonder non-multiboxers love to hate on multiboxers... the multiboxers kick ass.

I also secretly enjoy the fly-on-the-wall aspect of listening in on the conversations. Some of them are highly entertaining! Sometimes I have no idea what they are talking about, but at least it lets me learn a little here and there. It also helps answer the question of "who are these weirdos?" that I find myself asking quite often. (Those people that I talk to frequently are most definitely weirdos, so I'm going to go out on a limb and assume that the rest of you are too.)

Now us womenfolk just need to unite and convince MiRai to stream so we can have a swoonfest! Official Dual-Boxing.com Swoonfest 2013?

    I almost feel the same way at this point having not seriously multiboxed in quite some time. It's time like these I almost regret being on a PvP server for when I start back up again (soon™).

    Live streaming I agree is definitely enjoyable. Sometimes I'll log off for the night and then pop open the iPad on twitch in bed before I go to sleep.

    Okay I have watched some Youtube videos but I have never watched a stream. Anyone got some good links for some late nighters? I get home around 4 AM so I doubt many are out streaming that late at night/early in the morning. But yeah some of those peeps makes it look easy or have a high level of skill.

    I arrive home at 4 AM, so I doubt many people are streaming at that time of day. However, some of those people make it appear to be simple or to possess a great level of skill. the backrooms
