En Masse Community Spotlight #1

Internal

Hey, folks, Tailypo here with the first of our En Masse Community Spotlights!

As part of our En Masse Partner Program, we are actively working to build new relationships—and maintain existing ones—with creators and micro-communities. To this end, we’ll be featuring a few of our En Masse Partners periodically: sharing a little about them, their communities, and what excites them about collaborating with En Masse.

This week, we are thrilled to shine the spotlight on the following three En Masse Partners: LightItUpDan, FromThe70s, and Sarumonin!

What’s more, we’ve arranged a series of special streams with LightItUpDan:

  • Playing TERA on Thursday, March 1 from 10 a.m. – 2 p.m. PST
  • Streaming TERA for PlayStation®4 Open Beta Test on Saturday, March 10 from 8 a.m. – 1 p.m. PST
  • Running TERA again on Thursday, March 15 from 10 a.m. – 2 p.m. PDT

Tune in for server info and join LightItUpDan!

"Hey, folks! I'm LightItUpDan, a full-time partnered broadcaster on Twitch—and now an En Masse partner, too! I've been streaming since January 2014 and a Twitch partner since April 2015, so you might say I know my way around the place.

Live every Monday to Friday from the UK, my channel focuses heavily on interaction, engagement, and positive vibes! We've enjoyed both single-player and multiplayer games, mainly within the Action RPG genre, my favorite.

Our community, The Lights, are a passionate, insightful, intelligent, and hilarious group of people who I have the pleasure of hanging out with every day. They're quite literally what I get up for in the morning.

Having been an avid player of Action MMORPGs, including En Masse's very own TERA and Kritika Online, I'm excited to dive back in with the community to enjoy all of the latest content together. (I wonder how my Gunslinger's doing...?)

This opportunity to create a stronger presence for En Masse games on Twitch is a privilege, and a discussion we've been having since before TwitchCon! We've been tossing ideas back and forth for months before coming to this point. Both the community and I are stoked to play some fun games and see what we can achieve together."

FromThe70s -- https://www.twitch.tv/fromthe70s

"I decided to start streaming mainly as a way to not seem crazy when I talk to myself while playing games. It turns out, there's a ton of great people that I have met, and I'd love to meet you too!

The Disco is built on players helping each other, positivity, and just having a good time. The accessibility of En Masse games means that anyone who wants to play with us, can! I truly am very excited for what the future holds, and the possibility of meeting you!

I'm a child of the 70s; I grew up with Magnavox, Commodore, and Atari. Occasionally I program—I've published one terrible iPhone game, have played far too many MMOs, and am a sucker for pirate-related stuff.

I've been married for 25 years, and my daughter is in college and married! So proud!

And as it keeps coming up, I'll mention it here: Yes, I'm from the 70s, but I lived through the 80s, 90s, 2000s etc. I was a little kid in the 70s. Hah! Yes, I like 80s music and movies too! I'm not a time traveler!"

FromThe70s streams on Twitch every Monday, Tuesday, Thursday, and Friday, from 5 p.m.-9 p.m. Pacific, where he regularly streams a variety of games, including En Masse’s F2P anime beat-em-up ARPG Closers.

Sarumonin -- https://www.twitch.tv/sarumonin

David Angel—better known by his gaming moniker, Sarumonin—is a singer-songwriter under Prophecy Records, releasing his debut album ”Reborn” this spring. In addition to the music, David is an award-winning poet: 2007–2008 America's Best Poet Award, 2012 Great Poets Across America Award, and the International Who's Who in Poetry 2012-2013 Award.

With all that under his belt, he’s also been in the gaming industry for the last decade, working as a Game Master, Community Moderator, Community Manager, and Public Relations Director. He’s now taking a new approach in entertainment, streaming daily on Twitch under the name Sarumonin—from MMORPGs to MOBAs and Arena Games!

"I’m very happy and excited to work with En Masse. After so many years behind the scenes, and working on different projects, I finally was able to start my own community and guild through my first MMORPG that led me to become much more social: TERA. En Masse brought forth a quality customer support service, and though no company is perfect—they worked hard to make sure their games were both top-notch in quality and fun. I’m very excited to partner up with En Masse and provide players the opportunities to learn some fun things about their games, and of course, give away some exciting things for those dedicated enough!"

Sarumonin streams on Twitch every Monday, Wednesday, and Friday, from 10 a.m.-12 p.m. Pacific, where he regularly streams a variety of games, including En Masse’s F2P anime beat-em-up ARPG Closers.
