SinOnTwitch is a Destiny Streamer for Tracker Pro; In our latest entry of Tracker Pro Interviews, we dive into who Sin is and what separates them from the rest. We hope that you will find the same interest in our Pros as we have and consider checking out their content!
Tell us about yourself, who are you and what do you do?
Hey guys, my name is Sin, most call me SinOnTwitch due to it being my username; But primarily, you can just call me Sin. I'm a 23 year old part-time streamer from the East Coast of the US and I heavily focus on the PvE endgame side of Destiny 2.
I primarily play MMOs, looter shooters, and ARPGs with a side focus on first-person games. I aspire to teach, inform, and become a positive force in the community not by talking about it, but doing things to strengthen what those before us have built in the industry.
How and why did you get into content creation?
I was good at Destiny, and a friend of mine was like "why don't you stream it?" so like, I did.
It's not a glorious superhero origin story (there was no toxic vat of acid.)
Tell us about your community
The cult is just a witty name I came up with when brainstorming brand building, but we're scattered. We have a mix of PvP players and a mix of PvE players. We love memes, we love just spreading love wherever we can. We do fundraisers 1-2 times a year, we hang out, we're like a small tight-knit family that's always open to bring more people in.
Some of the best creators and people I've ever met frequent our chats, and I'm just grateful to have created this, because it isn't all about me anymore - it's about the community.
What do you enjoy most about Destiny?
I enjoy the social aspect. I love being able to log-off from my work day (I work from home) and being able to then hop into Discord and catch up with friends; Whether it just be playing a few matches of Crucible or slapping a Raid together last minute (let's be honest, the best Raid runs are the ones that get thrown together last second.)
For me, it's the community, and it's the story. You and your friends are striving and contributing to Bungie's massive vision, doing so in a very intimate and connective manner.
What is your favorite PvP map in Destiny 2?
Anything that isn't Bannerfall; But if I had to pick, probably Convergence.
What advice would you give someone looking to get into content creation?
Don't be intimidated by outside forces to do or not do it. While you grow a following over time, remember that you're in charge of your own content - no one else is.
Uplift yourself, and only then can you uplift others. Confidence is the dealbreaker when it comes to people trying to get into content creation, but I promise anyone trying to start doing it, you're only going to be helping yourself.
Failure is the best teacher when it comes down to the wire.
Lastly, have fun with it. Just have fun with it. Did I say have fun with it?
If there was one thing you could tell your former, aspiring-creator self, what would it be?
Let go of any inkling of an ego about creation. Accept that people come and go, but understand that you aren't on a time limit. Content creation isn't even a race, much less a competition. It's something you just do.
Unlike Destiny, and more like Anthem, when it comes to content creation - there is no endgame (sorry, had to). Pace yourself.
In your opinion, what does it take to make a team successful?
I look at a team from two perspectives, individual and overall; One cannot work without the other. A person on a team must be allowed to express their expertise and be given an environment that allows them to do so, without this, the overall team could suffer.
It takes individuality of self and person to build a strong team. Anything you do, if it is your best work, can educate others on your team, therefore, building a stronger team overall.
Going forward, what do you want to accomplish with your team?
I think growth is the first thing that comes to the minds of most creators when this question gets asked, and generally, that is the response most would take. But I do feel as if content creation, and the way some creators are breaking down walls - more so recently than ever before, shows something that the overall Twitch community has been missing for years... A real reason to support creators of all sizes.
When we look at those that came before, the success they have earned, and I mean explicitly EARNED, we find that more times than not, the people beside those creators are the key factor in what helped people grow. So really, in the next few years or months, I don't hope to do anything more than uplift those trying to find their way, whether it be in gaming, Destiny 2, or life in general. I think as a creator it's our responsibility to contribute to the overall collective in a manner that entices natural growth of individual, and community.
Where can we find you on social media?
Find me memeing or ranting about something on Twitter, you guys can find me on YouTube and Instagram as well, and I stream weekly on Twitch!
We'd like to thank SinOnTwitch for taking the time to speak with us. From everybody at Tracker Pro, thank you for being a part of this journey and we look forward to sharing with you what's to come!
