The Net Worth of Stylosa
How rich is Stylosa? As of mid-2019, sources estimate a net worth that is over $400,000, earned through a successful career on YouTube. He’s been active on the website since 2011, and his online fame has led him to numerous opportunities. As he continues his career, it is expected that his wealth will also continue to increase.
Early Life and YouTube Beginnings
Very little is known about Stylosa before the rise of his channel on YouTube. Despite all of his activity online, he has not shared a lot of details regarding his education, childhood, and family. It is likely that he developed a strong interest towards video games during his youth, and in particular enjoyed first person shooter games. Eventually he noticed how several YouTube personalities were finding success through the platform, and decided that it would be a great platform to find his own way to fame and wealth.
YouTube is a video sharing website owned by Google and was the idea of three former PayPal employees. The website launched in 2005, and has since grown to become one of the most high traffic websites on the internet. It allows users to upload videos for others to view, who can then rate, share, comment and report on videos, while subscribing to creators they enjoy. Numerous types of videos are available on YouTube, including video blogs (vlogs), educational videos, video clips, documentaries, movie trailers, music videos, and many more.
In 2011, Stylosa didn’t really have a direction for his channel yet, and mainly played games which he was interested in at the time. One of the games he played during this period was “Rift”, a free-to-play massively multiplayer online role playing game (MMORPG), which takes place in the fantasy world of Telara. Players join one of two competing factions, with a selection of classes and races available for each. The name of the game is taken from enemies and battles which often emerge from Rifts.
He soon started playing other games, including “Magicka” which is an action adventure video game available through Steam. It was developed by eight students at the Lulea University of Technology and was successful, making it solely responsible for the majority of the profit of publisher Paradox Interactive during 2012. The game is based on Norse mythology with four images of a sacred order travelling to fight an evil sorcerer and his minions. The game also draws inspiration from “Diablo” and “Warhammer”, while using comedy for effect too.
Overwatch and Recent Content
Eventually, Stylosa found his footing when he became interested in the multiplayer first person shooter game entitled “Overwatch”. The game is published by Blizzard Entertainment, and was released in 2016. The game has players become a part of a team of six, with each selecting a hero from a roster of over 30 characters. Players then battle another team to try and secure or defend control points on a map with limited time – they can gain cosmetic rewards such as skins and victory poses through loot boxes. The game was initially launched with casual play, and a competitive mode for other players. Eventually, they’ve added additional content such as maps, game modes, characters, and the like, all free of charge.
The game was created after the cancellation of their planned MMORPG called “Titan”, and the remnants of that game became the inspiration for this new franchise. The game takes inspiration from first person shooters such as “Team Fortress 2”, while also using concepts from multiplayer online battle arenas such as “League of Legends”. Since its launch, Stylosa has been consistently creating content for the game including gameplay and update videos, rumors, lore videos, tutorials, and many more.

Personal Life and Social Media
For his personal life, not much is known in terms of Stylosa’s romantic relationships. He has not been open about this aspect of his life, and all signs post to the likelihood that he is single as there is no evidence to suggest otherwise. While he has become a respected member of the “Overwatch” community, he’s also gained a lot of criticism for his tendency to exaggerate or create rumors for his own benefit. He’s also been criticized for creating longer videos on YouTube, stretching content unnecessarily so that he can earn more income from the site.
Similar to numerous YouTube and gaming personalities, he is highly active online through social media sites. He has an account on Instagram on which he has over 13,000 followers, used to give a bit of an insight into his life away from his YouTube endeavors. He owns a pet dog and often posts pictures of himself with the dog. He also does a lot of outdoor activities, and goes to events that feature “Overwatch” a lot. Another account he has is on Twitter on which he has almost 140,000 followers, and on which he gives updates on his life, while posting meme content for his “Overwatch” followers. Similar to numerous YouTube personalities, he’s also been streaming as an alternative form of income, and a way to interact with his fans directly.
