“Hello everyone! Streamers of the world, watch out! I’m coming in fast!” he explained per Dot Esports. “I’m recording this video to let everyone know that I’ve become a streamer! Well, not yet. I haven’t actually made my debut yet. But my idea is to stream throughout our time in Qatar!”
“I want to establish a direct relationship with you, the fans, and whoever else may be interested in any information about the team told from a specific viewpoint (mine, and that of my staff).”
“The stream can only improve,” he joked.
