Why This Matters

Live streaming has become a cornerstone of the gaming community, transforming how players and audiences connect. Many gamers now prefer watching live streams over playing games themselves, drawn by the sense of community and shared excitement it fosters. Chatting with streamers, joining live events, and immersing themselves in live streaming is a compelling alternative to traditional entertainment and gaming. The partnership between Azarus and Stream promises to revolutionize this space, making live streaming even more rewarding and engaging than ever before.
