Interview: Fnatic Moonryde is a pro gamer and streamer, that’s how he did it

EVERY teenager in 2022 seems to want to be a streamer or YouTube star.

It’s the popular career of the day, replacing the rock stars and fashion icons of the 80’s and 90’s generation.

Fnatic Moonryde is one of the biggest Twitch streamers in Italy and also happens to be a very talented Call of Duty player.

Call of Duty: Warzone has been one of the biggest battle royale games in the last few years and this month saw the release of Call of Duty: Warzone 2.0, an updated version of the game with some brand new mechanics and changes that will endure things that feel fresh to die-hard shooter fans.

Of course, for an experienced player like Dario ‘Moonryde’ Ferracci, the map is a bigger concern.

He says: “At the beginning of a new game, choose your drop zone and fight.

“Fight, fight all the time, don’t run away. Drop down and play in the same zone, with the same team, and you’ll learn the layout of the area in detail.”

With a massive new map to explore, it’s even more important to get your bearings early.

Any players unfamiliar with the map will quickly become overwhelmed and you want to be one of the teams that does the overpowering and doesn’t get gunned down.

Gaming skills are undoubtedly important when it comes to entertaining thousands of viewers at once – everyone wants to see some flashy abilities and exciting firefights – but interacting with and entertaining those viewers is just as important for Moonryde as it is he can.

He explains: “I’m a reader because the chat moves so fast, but I read fast and we have a lot of interaction.

“I’m an energy streamer, so I have a lot of energy and I put a lot of energy into my stream.

“And lots of interaction that I enjoy talking to [the chat]and we have many funny moments.

“If the stream is boring and I don’t like the stream, they don’t like the stream. If I have fun, they have fun.”

Throughout our chat, Moonryde is live on Twitch with over three thousand viewers at any given time – that’s impressive numbers for any streamer on a Friday morning.

He pauses mid-sentence to reply to chats and thank viewers for subscribing – one of the main sources of income for any streamer.

While praising his viewers, Moonryde expresses how his stream couldn’t exist without them when he suddenly gets ten subscribers.

He then explains that he is required to dance for his stream, after which he stands still in-game and dances in front of the camera while singing over the subs.

It’s easy to see why someone would donate to a dance, especially when it comes at a potentially inopportune time.

The more influence and interaction viewers get with what’s on screen, the more they seem to enjoy it.

As he plays the game better than I ever could, he also explains to me what he does, how he developed his skills and awareness, and also interacts with his viewers at every opportunity.

Moonryde is actively juggling at least three simultaneous tasks while conversing with me in his second language.

Given all of this and my voice rattling in his headphones, it’s forgivable that he hasn’t won every 150-player royale he’s jumped into.

Moonryde says “it takes time and work” to become a professional streamer.

“I’ve been streaming for six or seven years, so it’s not fast.

“You have to work hard, be lucky and know the people.

“If you’re consistent, you may not have great success, but you will have something.

“If you can do something you love and make money from it, you’re lucky.”

Moonryde is a member of professional gaming organization Fnatic and speaks of the organization with great admiration.

He explains: “It’s an honour. It’s a first class team, one of the best in the world.

“They said to me, ‘You have to be yourself, do your stuff and GG.'”

As soon as our conversation is over, Moonryde pauses for a moment and leaves the stream.

A few moments later, he returns without his Fnatic branded merchandise and is instead sporting a Sailor Moon Sailor Scout cosplay.

The messages whiz by in the stream’s chat far too quickly for anyone to follow.

Moonryde may be goofy and dance during the stream, but when it comes to entertaining his fans, he knows what he’s doing.
