Gamer | Creator | Influencer
Dethridge dabbled with YouTube in 2010 before discovering and falling in love Twitch TV in early 2012. Below is a brief history of time to give you some background and to introduce the creator.
Dethridge discovered Twitch in early 2012 under the name DethridgeCraft. It was in 2001 when he came across the name Dethridge. He first heard the name when he was in a band and met a fellow local Heavy Metal band called “Dethridge”. He always thought it was an awesome sounding name, and soon learned that it is actually one word and a last name. With it being taken on both Twitch & YouTube he went with DethridgeCraft. A plan to stream games such as Minecraft and World of Warcraft it seemed like a great fit.
Fast Forward to 2013, Dethridge decided to put a lot of his focus into his Minecraft Community. Building a strong family of gamers known as The Knights of Dethridge. For a long time, this was the type of content he was happy with making. It was creative, interesting, new, and allowed Dethridge’s personality to shine. With a lot of down time, it was here that Dethridge learned he loved conversation.
Then it all changed.
In late-2014 there was a craving, a want, a need to be a part of more. To have a deeper conversation outside of just a single game. Dethridge has been building a community around the industry ever since. With the ever expanding growth of Twitch (especially in 2016 and 2017), there has never been a better time to be a part of a community, and have a great conversation with great people. Dethridge strives to provide that place by being interactive and providing a place of positive energy.
On January 1st, 2017, Dethridge was able to secure his name on YouTube. This was the beginning of the end for the name DethridgeCraft. Soon after, Twitch announced they would be recycling names. It was all coming together. Then on March 1st, the name change happened. After 3 years of trying, it happened. DethridgeCraft has become Dethridge.
Moving forward into the future, Dethridge brings a variety of content, games, conversation, and everything in between. With a following of over 270,000+, hundreds of people tune in for hours of fun and entertainment each week. Be sure to come on by, kick back, and enjoy the show!
