Now that we are in 2023 and we can afford to take a look in the rear view mirror to observe the last twelve months, we realize that the year 2022 could not have been busier. All the more so for some content creators, like Zerator, who are quietly resuming their lives by taking stock of the past year. For the streamer, 2022 has been a colossal year, even bigger than 2021, but he’s not sure 2023 will be any better, and he explained why.

2023 on Twitch, a year between renewal and serenity for Zerator
Year after year, the Twitch platform continues to push the limits of its popularity, boundaries stretched by the increasingly ambitious productions of certain streamers. In the genre, Zerator has achieved feats in recent years, even going so far as to rank, using the ZEvent, among the five most watched events on the platform this year. However, the record does not stop there for Zerator since he not only oversaw yet another edition of his charity marathon, but also gave life to other events such as the ZLan or the ZrT Trackmania Cup in Bercy . A consecration on many levels, going as far as winning its esports team, Mandatory, during the French championships of Valuing.
However, 2023 will not be the year of excess for Zerator. Rather, he sees the next twelve months as a transition period before the following year. According to him, the key words, in 2023, will rather be renewal and serenity.. A sort of renaissance, on the one hand, which will result in the transformation of some of its flagship formats such as ZEvent, ZLan and the ZrT Trackmania Cup. Besides that, the streamer would see himself refocusing on video games by organizing, for example, live sessions on independent games. Before jumping into the deep end of the year 2023, Zerator drew up, for the sixth consecutive year, the balance sheet of the months that have passed.

At a glance, the figures are dizzying, and all the more so when you know that they are even more spectacular than those of 2021. As Zerator said in his live last Monday, he believes “to have had the biggest year of my life in 2022” : nearly 1,500 hours of live and more than 22 million hours of viewing — three million more than in 2021 — more and more followers on YouTube, Twitter and Instagram, a crazy week in a hotel on time of a giant LAN for the expansion release Dragonflight from World of Warcrafta final of the Worms Cup and two exceptional concerts within the framework of the ZEvent and the Popcorn Festival and many other things!
It is already the end of this year 2022 which has been the busiest year of my entire life. I can’t even believe I got to do so much stuff. Thank you SO MUCH for all these memories and your support 💚. Here is for the 6th consecutive year the post balance sheet!#Bilan2022 pic.twitter.com/PjN0zKHAMX

The list is very long and represents, most certainly, the streamer’s busiest year so far. Live, Zerator even went so far as to say that 2022 has been an “almost too big” year where there has been “too much”.. In addition to major events, the content creator also participated in the dubbing of two video games and, to stay in this area, was able to enjoy the publication of his first video game in partnership with FibreTigre, entitled Antioch: Scarlet Bay. It remains to be seen what the streamer is really preparing for us for 2023, but from what we already know, there will be changes in his streaming decor: return to the green screen box while waiting for the final revelation.
