To Facecam, or not to Facecam, that is the question. - Whether tis nobler in the mind to face the slings and arrows of shallow internet trolls, or suck it up and display yourself proudly, And by opposing end them? - I've noticed that youtube gamers, like myself, who happen to have a bloody ton of subscribers, unlike myself, often tend to use webcams or some other means to record themselves. Granted they are also ridiculously energetic and/or outrageously attractive, unlike myself who tends to be somewhat analytical yet still (god I hope) relatively entertaining in my approach to gaming and... not... coverperson-worthy in the looks department. - While youtube gamers, like myself, who happen to avoid the use of webcams or other recording devices aimed directly at their faces to take in every gaping pore and un-tweased browhair, yet capable of intriguing and generally entertaining dialog (hopefully like myself)... tend to get the shorter end of the stick, regardless of how often they post or how hard they work at their channel. - Think Markiplier v. Cryaotic, if you'd like two very big name examples. Mark has 20million subs after years of work. Cryaotic, despite being a fascinating specimen and genuinely praised by multiple 'famous' youtubers with ridiculous sub numbers, has only a TENTH of that (yes 2 million is 1 tenth of 20 million, I even googled to make sure) and has been working for as long, if not longer than Markiplier (factoring in Mark's original channel and time on Twitch, they've both been at it for nearly a decade and some spare change) - (TL;DR) So I'm curious - Are you more prone to subbing to someone you can see? Or is a good set of pipes all you need?
