Lirik Analysis

There’s something about Lirik that is hard to put a finger on. From his rotating door of gaming and commentary to his always interesting setups and computers, Lirik is what some might call: Mischievous. 

However, that isn’t to say that this mischievousness isn’t to his benefit. His rotating cast of games has only aided in bringing more of a community together, one which Lirik has made every attempt to be involved with. His commentary is what makes his viewers stick around, and the stories coming from his gaming setups have managed to make his reddit have a total of 44k frequent followers. 

The two current games Lirik has taken a shine too are Apex Legends, with its release of Season 2, and Escape From Tarkov, with its new updates. When it comes to controls for Lirik, he’s pretty safe in that he’ll stick with a majority of the base keybinds and settings. Typically, Lirik will be playing at a lower DPI than most others, with sensitivity settings to counteract these settings marginally. 

When it comes to his computer setup currently, despite having some sponsorships, Lirik has declined a $15k personal build due to him moving soon. Though it’s not sure if that’s the real reason for the decline, what is true is that Lirik is currently using a pre-built Best Buy computer. Though which one is up for debate. Alternatively, Lirik is currently using three ASUS ROG Swift monitors for his gaming and streaming, as well as a predominately HyperX and Audio-Technica dominated setup.

When it comes to streaming, Lirk is one of the most reliable individuals in the field right now. His streams all begin at the same time of 9 am PST and go until 5pm PST. You’ll find that Lirik will take Thursdays off each week, but other than that, there are very little variations. A few weeks ago he took a week off for some recuperation, but outside of that week, Lirik has shown everyone his work ethic.

Lirik Bio

Lirik was initially introduced to the world of gaming by his brother, who was playing Doom on the PC. Lirik spent many hours watching and playing games with his family and became a gaming addict because of it. Having a longer relationship with Twitch than many others, Lirik was on the channel when it still called Justin.tv and watched Towelliee stream rather frequently. 

Sharing a love of WoW, Towelliee, and Lirik slowly, but surely, became friends. A friendship that eventually led to Lirik making mods for Towelliee and playing together even during streams. It was a friendship that slowly built into something much grander as Lirik decided to look into the whole streaming business as a viable option. Even though he was studying for a Computer Science degree, Lirik decided to start up some light streams. 

Maintaining his connection with Towelliee, Lirik would often stream with, and request assistance from his longtime streaming friend. The two, along with streamer Shortyyguy started a streaming community on Twitch called The Hammer Squad in 2014. The purpose of the streaming team was to help each channel grow and help bring up other, newer, streamers that they enjoyed.

Now in 2020, The Hammer Squad is still running and is now at least 75 members strong. Lirik is still a founding member of the streaming team and frequently will host other members whenever he is offline. And after completing his degree in Computer Science in 2015, Lirik made the ambitious decision to dedicate his time fully to streaming. A gamble that appears to have paid off 5 years later with an average of 16,000 subscribers and ~22,000 viewers each stream. Though it’s not clear what anyone’s future truly may be, it’s clear that Lirik will continue his ascent with just as much, if not more, momentum over the coming years.
