      it's called "I'm Done". "I Quit" or "i'm leaving" or "Goodbye" always do well. people think it's a leaving content creation video.

      I find that's not what a lot of youtubers are actually upset about: they are upset about their subscribers not being recommend or notified of their uploads even though those people have subscribed, specifically, for their content. This can lose them a lot of views they probably would have gotten otherwise, and for youtubers that rely on youtube ad rev instead of things like patron that can result in the loss of a lot of money. Its also frustrating as a subscriber, and I'm sure as the creator as well, when subscribers aren't getting the content they explicitly told youtube they wanted.

    Hey man. I haven't checked out this channel in probably a good 9 or 10 years and sort of made the generalized assumption that it fell into the same trend as all of the other classic minecraft channels. Used to steal my mums laptop to watch your vids with my little bro and we would get yelled at every time but it gave us an escape from the shit we were going through at the time. I've never been able to express my gratitude, but nearly a decade later it's still really appreciated. I wish you the best.

    Yo, really cool to hear you may return to RLCraft, wasn't expecting that watching this vid haha. I also fully relate to your feelings here, the BRclip algorithm game can be stressful and worrysome and in the end just not worth. Totally support you just doing what you wanna do, I've always been of the mindset that if you are loving and having fun with what you do, then your audience will too. Wish you all the luck!

      @Fire Elighting can confirm 2.9 is almost like a DLC experience if you've played it, even at the 2.8.2 ver. Pretty nice time to return to RLCraft I'd say
      Edit: Wanted to add that the revamps and additions definitely made replaying it feel like a different game, in a good way. Props to Shivaxi and other mod owners for this 2.9 update

  • ThedutchGame life
    ThedutchGame life 2 meses atrás +9

    i havent watched you in years, and lately im doing it again. you're one of the only youtubers who seem to stick to whatever they want rather then pleasing the viewers. and as you mentioned, one of the only to stick to the old viewers in stead of hoping for a hand full of new ones who will never be satisfied anyways. you're doing an amazing job and im happy to hear you decide to stop stressing about it

    MARCUSK 3 meses atrás +1079

    Absolutely understandable jordan, youtube is in a rough place with this formulaic retention grabbing content. We need to return to authenticity. And I hope viewers agree.

    • A Foxy Fox
      A Foxy Fox 3 meses atrás

      @MARCUSK I think you are correct in your assessment. So I think I may have a sufficient grasp on the concept of spectacle, though you may wish to detail it further (I'm imagining very exaggerated things, colors, enormity, loudness, things which are fast paced and bombastic in their presentation), but what would depth be or what should it be to satisfy the young adult or 20+ audience in your opinion or your own experience? What examples might their be of one or the other within Minecraft and also outside of Minecraft? Do you believe that there are more young children under a certain age (what would the age range be? Also what caused a second generation's interest in and knowledge of Minecraft? Was it advertised again to younger people?) on BRclip in general or do you think BRclip has the vast majority of people over the age of 18 or 20? I always assume the videos with enormous views in the multi millions are coming from children around the world who are attracted to big claims, and what I am assuming might be a version of "Spectacle" like MrBeast's titles that mention large sums of money or gigantic things. Apparently mentioning large sums of money may somehow attract certain advertisements too? You may know a lot more about how all this works from more direct experience. I'd love to hear more on it all and your ideas on how such might be achieved in detail or examples you think might represent directions people could take or elements people could introduce into their content creation.

      MARCUSK 3 meses atrás

      @A Foxy Fox somehow we need content that appeals to both the new Minecraft kids and the 20 plus original viewers. We need content both with depth for the older viewers, and spectacle for the kids. Like toy story for example, any age can watch it.

    • A Foxy Fox
      A Foxy Fox 3 meses atrás

      How do you suggest that be done? What would "authenticity" look like? I'd love to hear your ideas on authenticity and how it might be represented and recognized and even incentivized potentially?

    Sorry this is a little late, you literally got me into BRclip, I was 12 when I started watching you and I'm turning 21 next month, I'm glad to see some familiar looking videos rather than the videos you've made for the algorithm, the series are what I miss about older BRclip, Its like watching a TV show, and your hexit videos were my favorite show, keep up what you're doing

  • Luca Dev
    Luca Dev 3 meses atrás +13

    I actually really like this idea seeing that so many of us came from the early days. Like, the whole point of making videos to entertain people is that you are supposed to have a good time and not be stressed out with every little detail of your video. So giving most of your viewers a trip down memory lane with less stress and effort seems like a much smarter way to do it.

    XUNKNOWN$TAR 3 meses atrás +60

    its crazy how as soon as you let go of trying to get into the algorithm, this video somehow makes it their. Kinda teaches you how life works a little bit. Sometimes if you want something really bad and you work for it, you have to let it go and jus let things happen.

  • Joshua Beard

    I first saw your videos in the 2014-2015 range. At that time I was probably in 1st or 2nd grade and I loved Minecraft.

    I am actually excited. I've been watching since like, my junior year in high school, and I have not been excited to watch videos from you in a while cause it felt like I could get really similar content just about anywhere on the platform. I'm excited to see where the channel goes with a new, unrestricted jardon

  • Delaney Artabella
    Delaney Artabella 2 meses atrás +7

    I was so worried whenever I saw the title, but Jordan, honestly, I am so happy you made a video like this. Over the years, I'd seen how stressed the algorithm was making you and I've always just wanted you to record the things that you enjoy doing. It's genuinely so nice to just see people having a good time, doing something they want to be doing. I'm very excited for more reaction content, even if it's only one a week!
    I've watched your channel for a long time. You were the first BRclipr I was ever a fan of back when I was just a little kid playing Minecraft with my cousin and staying up late to watch the very first Hunger Games you ever posted. I've always loved your content no matter what you've done. You just keep doing you. Your real supporters will always be here.

    As a new creator, seeing stuff like this is interesting. like I assumed just do what you enjoy and share that fun, and it should reach an audience, which is how it used to be I'm sure.
    I have noticed youtubers I do watch seem to be enjoying the content they're making to appease the algorithm aren't having as much fun as they used to when I first started watching them.

I grew up and am a truck driver now and toon in when I can, and I'm still always smiling from ear to ear with your content when I get the opportunity to. You're one of the OG's in my eyes and will always know that when I have time or I need a laugh I can always come back here for the childlike smile I rarely have anymore. This channel got me through the worst of my life. Thank you for everything you do!

    Honestly, I only ever started watching you for your episodic series, and when you stopped doing that I just started watching your 2nd channel. Point is, I've been here for maybe 5 to 7 years and I am excited to see some of your more traditional series come back. Crazy Craft, Hexxit, Super Mega Ultra Modded Legendary Survival.....
    Also, love how the algorithim prefers this lmao.

    As a new subscriber (as in, this week) I just wanna say I respect everything about this video. I've only recently seen your content, but you are one of the few creators that is actually a genuine person just playing and talking instead of trying to hype it up and get overexcited about everything. There are very, very few BRcliprs I watch regularly because it's so hard to find said genuine creators (atleast for stuff I'm interested in) but you'll be one of them going forward.
    I recently watched a video of yours from about June where you killed the Ender Dragon with beds for the first time. I was trying to find a video to watch on how to do it myself as it would be my first time too. Your video was in the first handful and wasn't made by and catered to speedrunners, so I ended up watching it. My favorite part? You play like I do. No perfect moves, not trying to beat an invisible timer to kill it as fast as possible, mistakes were made. It was just so relatable and that made it so much more enjoyable. I appreciate this kind of video far more than most of the stuff BRclip throws out nowadays.
    Sorry for the long comment. TL;DR Thank you for being a "normal" person in your videos and I look forward to seeing more.

    I remember my favourite series youve made in the past being ultra modded survival. I enjoyed seeing an ernest playthrough of minecraft and thats something i feel youtube is sorely lacking these days. Ive always found the experience of seeing someone create stories within a world and grow with it to be far more rewarding and stick with me longer than any video to pander to the algorithm. If thats the type of thing you want to create in the future i will whole heartedly support you in the return to your roots and i hope others will aswell

    I’ve been subscribed for years, but I haven’t watched your content in a long while because in my life I’ve just not been as interested in minecraft BRclip content in the last few years. Despite that, I have to say I have HUGE respect for you for this. The reason BRclip got as big as it did is because of the creativity of its creators and it is so great that in denying the algorithm of what it wants from your videos for the sake of creativity, you are pushing BRclip back to a simpler time. Mad respect and keep up the good work 👍

Just play the games that excite you and friends always make the experience better. Co-op series are awesome too! At the end of the day its your channel and you should be uploading what you want, not what other people want ( To a certain degree obviously). We are all here to watch YOU. Just have fun with it, you've made it in life so you owe it to yourself now to enjoy every moment as much as possible to the things you love!

      @Belinda Short a lot of people don’t bother with it because there’s too much stuff taking up that page. Most people on BRclip for more than 4 years get over 50 to hundreds of subscriptions. Many like the overwatch league have multiple streams per day, and it’s too much hassle to scroll through multiple days of content especially if you miss a day.
      The home page on iOS also has multiple columns so it’s easier to see, plus you get to see new stuff in a stale time on BRclip.
      It’s not optimal but it’s all BRclip gives us and the algorithm is wack.

    Doing what you want to do is honestly the best thing ever and the approach you're taking sounds like the best thing to do; having that balance between what you're passionate about and what's exciting is I think the ultimate strat for BRclip. I think due to how saturated BRclip is, I think almost anything goes as long as it's something that people would just be intrigued by (what they would click) and stay to watch, rather than what's just popular.
    Been one of those people since 2012 (2013?) and we're here for YOU; you have an extremely loyal fanbase and letting others jump onto that community by doing that is a really smart move. Also, that's why a lot of us really enjoyed hearing your rants and hearing you talk about things in your Reddit Reacts, and I'm really excited to see it come back.
    Don't hold back and just be yourself Cap!!!!

I fell off a few years back but have recently been getting back into your videos. A return to the past would be a real nostalgia trip not just for myself, but for so many others as well. And it’s something I certainly look forward to. I’ve noticed the amount of content and effort you’ve been putting out and was wondering how long you’d be able to keep it up. I’m glad that you’re deciding to chill out some and actually enjoy yourself a little more.

    I’m one of the subs from around 2010-2012. You were the first BRclipr my sister and I regularly watched and subscribed to. The videos you made that we especially loved were the Minecraft series like skyblock and hunger games (especially when you had Mark and Nick-the best trio), but mostly the custom Adventure Maps. I think we loved those so much because we’ve always been into RPG’s and games that are heavily story-based, so it was so fun watching you basically play a Minecraft RPG. We’d pounce when you uploaded a new adventure map. Man, now I’m going to go back and rewatch a bunch of them like Chronotide.

    BRclip is in a stale place right now. Pushing for cookie cutter fast paced explosive content that only appeals to young kids or new users will fail when this core audience matures to realize how repetitive it is. You're making the right move cap, there's a lot of viewers who just want good content from good people, not just whatever is thrown at them on the home page.
