Welcome to this week's Feature Friday!

From technical questions or streaming insight, they've got you covered. With plenty of industry experience DeDuke has continued to grow his community and group across multiple platforms.
When it comes to defining DeDuke and his channel, we think of:
- Community - Aside from DukeStars and the wonderful support the community has, DeDuke is constantly evolving his channel and content with a heavy focus on his community.

- Work Ethic - Apart from consistent streaming, you can see the time and effort put into this channel not only by the quality of content, but also through advancement of DukeStars and the plenty of sponsorships that DeDuke holds.

Getting to know DeDuke
1) Who is your favorite Streamer, and why?
I have too many favorite streamers to just pick one. My stream family is full of one of a kind and amazing people. However, I have known OceanrGatsby for many years since before I started streaming on mixer. He is one of the first streamers I met. He is one of the most passionate, caring and hype people I know. If you are in his stream you will feel welcomed and have a good time guaranteed!
2) What is your favorite game or role to play and stream?
Call of Duty is my main game to play and stream. I prefer fps games but I do play other games on occasion.
3) What is your main goal in 2021? Smaller goals to get there?
My main goal is to improve my social media presence, build relationships with more people and continue to build the DukeStars family. My end game is to become a full-time streamer and help others reach their goals!
4) What is something interesting/unique that you feel sets your channel apart from others?
I think my channel is different from others because of the crazy but fun atmosphere. I help anyone with tech support, even if this means putting my stream on to display capture and showing them how to do something. I love supporting and promoting other streamers and seeing others reach their goals.
5) What are your favorite pieces of streaming equipment, and computer hardware?
Elgato stream deck XL, AVerMedia 4K capture card, Techni Sport gaming chair, Xbox Series X, and the custom-made desk that my wife, son and I built together.
6) Tell us about DukeStars and how it came to be?
DukeStars started as a stream team on Mixer. My wife and I started this team to give other content creators the opportunity to meet each other and build relationships. We worked very hard and became one of the top 10 largest teams on the platform. DukeStars has evolved into a multi-platform, worldwide, multicultural family. Our goal with DukeStars is to make it a place for streamers and content creators of all sizes to have a safe, positive and supportive place to meet people, network, get technical support and build a family!
