Meet RedOpz

by Matthew MacIsaac on May 10, 2019

Who are you? IRL and gamer Tag

Everyone in my life IRL and gaming has just called me Red. Although on Twitch my username is RedOpz11 as a beep boop account has taken my beautiful name! But yeah even in sport, school and gaming everyone has just called me plain old big tattooed Red.

What platforms do you create content on?

My main platform for content creation is on Twitch! I dabble in a little bit of YouTube but it is mostly just for weekly highlights from the stream!

I put my beautiful selfies on Instagram but i've been told that I have a head only a mother could love.

What is your all-time favourite game?

Damn girl this a hard question! I would have to say it's between Halo CE or Call of Duty Black Ops 1.

I would say Black Ops 1 as its the root of my competitive gaming and I remember staying up all night on double XP weekends playing 24/7 nuketown absolutely sweating and raging but loving every minute.

If you could be one video game character who would it be and why?

It has got to be Master Chief as that dude is the biggest badass in the gaming world. I had to much fun doing the campaigns absolutely rolling through the covenant and the scary looking flood! Like what other character would take that man down!

Where would you like to be in 1 year?

In 1 year I would love to be just streaming and making absolute banger content! I obviously would love to be partnered but I just take the flow as it comes and keep on keeping on! In 1 year I also hope to be a lot fitter and help other streamers try to become fit and make swole the goal!

What or who got you into gaming?

I sort of just grew up always loving gaming I remember playing mario at a young age and it just slowly evolved from there. It is crazy how much gaming has evolved as I have grown up so I think its always been around me and it's stuck to me and become a big part of my life!

What do you think of Quantum Energy Drink?

Ohhh boy this is the stuff that gets me going! Some of you might not know but I smack out some big boy streams and without just one of these bad boys every stream I would be on struggle street! It is so smooth and gives you the right kick with no crash! I have used this for the gym, streaming and if I am hating life in the morning after a late night session of gaming! Seriously get amongst it!

What is 1 piece of advice for someone starting out?

The one piece of advice I give for someone starting out especially streaming on Twitch is turn off all of the numbers views, follows etc and just focus on being you and putting out the best content you can! That helped me just play the games I want and have fun doing it without the stress of numbers in your head!

What is your favourite content creation moment?

The best moment to date in content creation would be the week at Australian Hospitality and Gaming Expo being able to stream live at the event with hundreds people walking around and checking out esports and asking questions and having a Dad buy a Rezeros gaming chair for his son and asked me to sign it for them was insane!

Who is your favourite streamer or YT'er? And why?

My favourite streamer to watch is CDNthe3rd! He has the best community on twitch and no matter the game I can go to his stream and end up hearing some absolute rib ticklers of jokes! He is also my longest sub on twitch I think im up around 40 months now.

What is your favourite gaming snack?

This one is tough as I keep the business of Uber Eats going but I really enjoy double smoked almonds! They are healthy ish and taste like cheese and bacon shapes! If you haven't tried them go down to coles and grab a bag!

What's your favourite thing to do outside gaming?

My favourite thing away from gaming would be hitting the gym and playing sport! Haven't been able to for a bit with my ankle injury but I will get back there one day! But anything active I dig it!  

Who outside of gaming do you look up to as a role model or idol?

My idol would be Tom Brady he is one of the best sportsman in the world and he started from the bottom! Was a nobody and told he would never be a successful Quarterback and has now won multiple Super Bowls, MVP’s and is still playing professional sport past the age of 40! My god damn inspiration right there!
