    Okay, so my YouTube channel is focused around a growing game, called Paladins, last time I checked it was about 9 million+ users, across PS4, Xbox One, and PC.

    The idea to me is that, when the game does explode, which I'm sure it will, I'll be around with already tons of content. Assuming the game explodes within 3-6 months.

    The problem is, as of now, the dominating YouTubers get their views from their subscribers, and it's my understanding that if a big youtuber in your niche gets most of his viewers from his subscribers, it's not a good area for you.

    My channel is extremely new, with literally no subscribers and around 50 video views all together, over 2 videos. Although I do optimize my title and description, I don't really see my videos ranking high.

    My question to you guys is: would it be worth it to stick around for the long run and POTENTIALLY get a lot of views when this niche blows up, or would you just pack it up and move on the next thing.

    Side note: I'm doing this because it's extremely convenient. I record the content on my PS4 using the PS4 recorder, I can render it in an app called SHAREfactory on PS4, but can't edit. Then I can just upload it, slap on some tags, optimize the title and description, and I have a video. I'd like to get into others niches with things PC related, the problem is, I don't have one atm as I used to use my brothers, but he moved out, so now I'm having to use my moms laptop for basic functions such as homework, watching videos, etc. It can only be used for uploading because I'm afraid if I tried rendering something on it, it'd fry the laptop. So that's another thing, I'd like to make some money off of YouTube to be able to afford a gaming PC, as I'm really into PC gaming, but I can't right now because I don't have a computer haha.

    1. Paladins is old and never going to blow up
    2. You sound like this guy Bob I know. All he did was play COD and post it on Youtube cause it was convenient for him. He has about 150 subs after 3 years posting 30 minute videos daily.
    3. Are you Bob?

    Sadly, no I'm not Bob haha. Paladins does have a good amount of players, which is why I was thinking like that. Thanks for the input!
