"Sangat tidak menjangka, pasukan kami berjaya mendominasi pihak lawan dengan corak permainan yang sudah diatur sebelum perlawanan bermula.

"Ini adalah rezeki kami untuk yang baru bersama sebagai satu kumpulan dan ternyata rezeki tidak pernah salah alamat. Segala apa yang kami praktikan membuahkan hasil," katanya.

Menurutnya, ia merupakan pengalaman baru buat dirinya, yang sebelum ini tidak pernah menyertai sebarang pertandingan kompetitif sebegini.

"Satu pengalaman yang amat luar biasa. Masih terasa lagi adrenalin ketika perlawanan akhir dalam tubuh ini.

"Kalau ikutkan usia ramai yang cakap apa main game lagi. Tapi minat yang mendalam dalam bidang ini, saya berfikir kenapa tidak," katanya.

Kesefahaman Satu Pasukan.

Ditanyakan mengenai pemilihan 'creator' walaupun dalam keadaan yang singkat tetapi masih boleh mendapatkan kesafahaman yang sangat luarbiasa.

"Saya mengajak mereka untuk mengambil peluang ini dan mereka juga bersetuju untuk bersama menjadi satu pasukan.

"Masing mempunyai tugasan harian dan kerja hakiki masing-masing. Jadi kami mengambil kesempatan ini untuk melihat sejauh mana kemampuan kami untuk berada dalam pertandingan yang sangat kompetitif," katanya.

Latihan 12 Jam Sehari.

Menurutnya, rutin pasukannya adalah melakukan latihan harian semalam 12 jam dan ianya membuahkan hasil dimana mereka layak digelar juara.

"Kami melakukan latihan selama 12 jam setiap hari dan mencuba pelbagai Meta yang berlainan. Ini kerana kami ini bereksperimentasikan cara permainan yang berbeza dari pihak lawan.

"Masing-masing membuat analisis permainan pemain lain dan ini menguatkan lagi persefahaman kami di dalam perlawanan," katanya.

Meta Dan Jurulatih Baru.

Ketawa kecil uncle apabila penulis menyoalkan soalan berkenaan apa kejutan yang bakal disaksikan pada aksi akan datang.

"Banyak lagi Meta yang kami tidak gunakan dan nantikan kejutan dari kami pada perlawanan pada peringkat serantau.

"Pada perlawanan akhir kami ingin menggunakannya namun kami membuat keputusan untuk tidak menggunakan lagi kerana masih mampu untuk mengawal keadaan," katanya.

Berkenanan dengan kedatangan jurulatih baru yang akan menguatkan lagi strategi Budak Angkol pastinya memberi satu kelainan yang diingin peminat mereka.

"Apa yang saya boleh bagitahu, yer betul kami ada menjemput seorang jurulatih untuk melatih dan memberi idea yang lebih berkesan bagi menumpaskan pihak lawan.

"Siapakah jurulatih itu, biarlah rahsia dan nantikan kejutan dari kami,"katanya.

Pesaing Terkuat?

Penulis juga mengutarakan soalan, siapakah bakal menjadi pesaing terkuat pada ACG 2021 peringkat serantau nanti.

"Persaing terhebat sudah pasti pasukan dari Indonesia dan Filipina kerana sering kali melakukan kejutan dalam setiap perlawanan.

"Bagi saya pasukan Filipina pasti akan membuat kejutan dengan Meta yang baru dan tidak kurang juga pada team Indonesia yang juga suka menghasilkan Meta yang luabiasa. Pastinya saingan pada peringkat regional sangat sengit dan pastinya kami tidak mahu mengecewakan penyokong kami," katanya.

The path to livestreaming is often an arduous one to pursue. While many attempt it, only a few succeed. Meet SHITSUKE, a down to earth creator that has managed to diligently make a name for herself in the livestreaming sphere. 

Prior to donning her current handle, Farah used to go by “INCESSDIBS” , which was a shortened amalgamation of “princess” and “Diba”. Upon continual pursuit of this pathway, she found it within herself to transition to SHITSUKE. The term actually stems from Japanese cultural origins. It comes from an infamous workplace organization system that encompasses of five S, which are seiri, seiton, seisō, seiketsu, and shitsuke

One of various Google search results, the meaning of shitsuke does vary in some contexts

We’ll spare details of the other four S, but shitsuke here essentially refers to the art of sustaining or having sustained discipline to continually practise and improve oneself. The end result of accomplishing this feat: becoming someone who’s extremely proficient at one’s craft was what drove Farah to don this namesake. 

She was actually introduced to the world of livestreaming in May 2020 via her brother-in-law. This ended up piquing Farah’s interest, which eventually led to her personally pursuing livestreaming herself. From that point onwards, the rest as they say, is history. She is currently a full-time student studying in Politeknik Melaka. She juggles her studies while continually looking to improve her content and livestream.

While many would often disapprove out of concerns and risks of an unconventional career pathway, Farah was very fortunate to have understanding peers. Her family and friends had positive outlooks of this livestreaming venture. “They were supportive,” said Farah. She explained while smiling that her peers did say to “just make sure you don’t forget about your studies.”

A shot of Farah in her natural habitat

Fans would notice that her most streamed game is PUBG Mobile. “I stream PUBGM the most because its something I’ve been playing since I was 17,” Farah explained. Prior to this though, she did share about dabbing into Rules of Survival (RoS) before making the definitive switch over.

While juggling between a hectic study schedule and livestreaming, she does make it a point to unwind where she can. “I’ll just take time lying down to just chill and spend time with my family,” said Farah. She added that sometimes this wasn’t doable due to the occasional online classes that would pop up from time to time. “Throughout the MCO period, my schedule, for the most part, consisted of online classes, streaming, eating and sleeping,” she giggly explained. 

While she diligently improves her craft daily, there is one person that she looks up to in the world of livestreaming. “I personally look up to UP Gaming, he’s a real funny and chill guy,” said Farah. 

It ain’t sunshine and rainbows in the world of livestreaming though. “I’d say the least favourite thing about livestreaming would have to be how toxic the environment can be at times,” said Farah. Despite the challenges, Farah has always been all smiles on camera, looking to put some good back into the world in whatever way she can. 

For any aspiring streamers out there, here’s some advice that Farah wanted to share. “Don’t ever give up even though you have only a few viewers, just go on. But if years have passed and there are still no viewers coming in, you should probably stop. Don’t waste any more precious time and money.” Farah also wanted to take the time to express some words of appreciation to her loved ones. “I would like to thank everyone, especially my family for supporting and for believing that I could do this. And thank you so much as well to my parents for giving the start-up capital needed to assemble my PC!”

While Farah does not have a fixed streaming schedule, she does her best to livestream whenever possible, so do drop by and say hello whenever you can over at her Facebook page!

In the world today, various values are put on a pedestal, while some get outright shunned for being “not cool”. Meet Mummy Eva, a streamer that has managed to put herself out there and prove to others that being cool doesn’t always mean conforming to society. 

The story of GM Remy and Mummy Eva

For the uninitiated, many may be confused upon stumbling upon GM Remy’s page, where a certain Mummy Eva is found broadcasting herself live to the thousands of fans. So who or what exactly is GM Remy then? For starters, GM Remy and Mummy Eva are actually a married couple. The page was originally created by GM Remy himself, a Free Fire product quality assurance and community manager for Singapore, Malaysia, Philippines and India. As the GM initials imply, Game Master Remy had created the page initially to build up a gaming community for Free Fire. The page was created back in December 2018, and was later handed over Mummy Eva in August 2019, where she would continue streaming on behalf of her husband. She was deeply in love with Free Fire and was passionate about helping her husband grow its community. This led to GM Remy eventually handing over the livestreaming reins to her wife to continue building the Free Fire community together. The two now manage the page, with GM Remy acting as her manager while Mummy Eva focuses on livestreaming.

Mummy Eva's humble streaming setup

Have passion, will stream!

As a nice trivia tidbit, this was also the very first time that Mummy Eva encountered livestreaming when she took centre stage in front of the camera. “It was something that came surprisingly natural to me once I gave it a go,” said Mummy Eva. “My husband also helped improved my livestreaming greatly with his own experience.”

It is currently her fulltime job, and she is a huge proponent of proving that gaming is anything but a “bad” past time in the public’s eyes. “Gaming helps a lot more than one may realize,” said Mummy Eva. “I still remember about this one article that stated playing video games can actually help improve (and not hurt) your eyesight!”. This eye-opening discovery would probably be something readers may want to bookmark for future negotiations with family members, spouses alike.

Donning a mask has become something of a trademark for Mummy Eva

What’s with the mask?

But wait a minute, Mummy Eva is often seen wearing a mask and not fully putting herself out there in front of her sea of fans. “Let me clarify, first of all, this is not a Niqab (a garment of clothing that covers the face, worn by some Muslim women as a part of a particular interpretation of hijab). When I first started streaming, I was a very very shy person,” explained Mummy Eva. “I used to be so shy to the point I’d need someone else to order KFC for me.”

“Back in the day, an idea of wearing a mask came to mind.” In the current livestreaming world today, it is something of a rare occurrence to find female streamers that don a mask. “When the mask is on, I would feel like I’m a different person. It feels like I have my very own super power.” This newfound courage, look and persona worked well for her personal brand. It also led her to often referring herself as Mummy “Ninja” Eva due to her newfound ninja-like concealed appearance.

Trials and tribulations

Her journey to become a full-time streamer was not all sunshine and rainbows though. There was initially some friction between her family and peers. Mummy Eva recalled that “there were a lot of debates and discussions about how this would be a waste of time, that this was not a real job and be something I would never succeed in. During the very beginnings of my streaming forays as well, I was also often bombarded with messages saying that 'women should stay in the kitchen instead'.”

After several months of going through the grind to generate some form of income, Mummy Eva’s peers came to realize the reality presented before them. “They now support me 210% till today. I even have a few family members and friends that started to get into streaming recently!”

“Even after streaming for some time now, I now feel that I’ve proven that women can also be successful streamers too. We do not always have to show off our ‘assets’ as a female to promote ourselves.” 

The title is not just for show

Keen observers would have most likely noticed that there is the word “Mummy” in her nickname. “Yes, I have 2 sons, but that’s not actually how people started calling me ‘Mummy Eva’. It actually started a couple of years ago when people called GM Remy ‘Daddy’.” She was a real hardcore Free Fire player back then that met and interacted with many players in the community too. Once fans had found out that she was GM Remy’s wife, they started calling her ”‘Mummy Eva”. The rest as they say is history.

A mother at heart

The change in lifestyle

Prior to adjusting to this new norm before the present new “new norm”, Mummy Eva did notice herself growing much more as an individual. “My life changed after I started streaming. I began to gain more self confidence, and now have more friends than before. There are definitely a lot of things from streaming that made me a much better person than I was before.”

With this new lifestyle, Mummy Eva had to also find ways to acclimatize in the real world when the camera was turned off. “Well, I’m a hardcore fan of K-Dramas. I spend most of the time watching it, sometimes with my fans through Discord too. At other times, I’d do some window shopping or spend time with my 2 kids either tutoring or playing with them.”

Mummy’s two cents

Upon looking back, Mummy Eva stated that reaching this stage of her livestreaming career wouldn’t have been possible without the help of Facebook Gaming. “The partner program does help streamers reach their goals. But do not get the wrong idea, we still need to put in the work and grind required. But at the very least, it’s comforting to know that Facebook Gaming will always have our backs to teach and help us out with things like how to continue growing and developing our own personal brands. Am truly thankful to Facebook Gaming for the wonderful opportunities given to me.”

She also attributed her current day success to her family, friends and fans that have been there for her all the way back during the very rough beginnings. “I am nothing without any of your support. Things would've been very hard without your continued guidance and motivational speeches.” 

For any budding or aspiring streamers out there, Mummy Eva also wanted to share about the importance of staying resilient. “Never give up on your dreams, because someday, someone can go from being the reason you cry yourself to sleep, to the reason you wake up smiling.”

Be sure to show Mummy Eva your love and support when she’s in action over at GM Remy’s page (almost) everyday from 3:30 P.M. ~ 4:00 P.M. and 8:30 P.M. ~ 9:00 P.M. onwards!
