Managing chat, interacting and being on camera while playing a competitive game can be overwhelming. With all of this going on, a toxic comment in the chatbox can ruin your mood. Veteran gaming streamers eventually grow a thick skin, but with time, even trolls are getting smarter with their insults. Sometimes, it's just too much to handle.
Imagine you're having a terrible day in, let's say, Call of Duty. You already feel like tossing your keyboard across the roam, and a random user named KissMyAxe999 calls you a noob, followed by highly inappropriate, personal slang. Not fun, right? It doesn't matter if you've been streaming for ten years; trolls can get into the thickest of skins. Live streaming is a challenging job.
