KingRichard’s Streaming Setup
Dedication, humor, and skill all are qualities of King Richard on and off the competitive gaming scene. You can tell when you glance at his settings and sensitivities that King Richard isn’t called King for no reason. Sporting some of the highest sensitivities-to-polling rates seen in the competitive world, King Richard is really making it hard for fans to replicate his success.
Granted, most of his quick skills are due to his gear. Easily sporting some of the top gear available in the industry, King Richard sits on his self-given throne, ready for anything. There are rumors that King Richard has started delving into the world of streaming PCs and will soon share a video on what makes his second comp a necessary addition to his arsenal.
Despite all his success as a Fortnite streamer, KingRichard really shines most when he’s playing Apex Legends, and with the new release of season 3, we’re all expecting to see a lot of Apex in the near future. Likely with fellow NRG teammate, and winner of the First Apex Championship, Dizzy.
When it comes to Fortnite however, KingRichard isn’t to be taken lightly. Sporting an impressive ~27% win rate with his almost 14k matches, KingRichard is showing up and clearing out servers. You can find KingRichard streaming most days, however when he starts tends to be on a whim. If you’re looking forward to seeing the King play make sure to follow him on Twitter and Twitch.

The history of KingRichard is one shrouded in mystery. His childhood, when he first grew to love gaming, pretty much everything from his past before posting his first YouTube video is unknown. That first video was posted originally back in 2014 when he was 28, and it focused on ESO (Elder Scrolls Online). It was pretty obvious that he was skilled and was welcomed into the community rather quickly, getting around 10,000 subscribers before even touching any Battle Royale games.
By the time KingRichard got his hands on Fortnite, he had already amassed an additional 6,000 subscribers and 2 million total video views. However, like most streamers with skill and dedication, Fortnite changed everything for KingRichard. Going from those 16k subs to now over 240k, and a fast growing Twitch channel means that KingRichard is growing fast, and establishing himself.
Unfortunately for the pro player, KingRichard is currently surrounded in controversy around his hiring of graphic design team G4K. They claim that KingRichard requested their services and when provided a mock-up, KingRichard used the designs and didn’t pay for G4K’s time or efforts. However, as time has passed and the situation has been more established, it seems that KingRichard actually did pay for part of the work upfront, and when presented the mock-ups months after the requested due date for the finished project, KingRichard decided to exit out of the agreement. The situation has since gotten KingRichard in to some notorious flak amongst the community and he’s seen a slow decline in popularity because of it.
We all know however that this situation will pass for KingRichard, and he’ll eventually gain his stride once more and come out on top. Much like he has since the beginning of his Apex Legends career, and his time with team NRG since October 10th, 2018. Ultimately, nothing is going to be stopping KingRichard from progressing and becoming the pillar that he is destined to be.
