If youo re not one of the 3.4 million people subscribed to o SkyDoesMinecrafto you probably dono t know who o SkyTheKidRso is, and even after watching numerous videos of his, I cano t say I know who he is either. I honestly cano t.


Yes, what he releases everyday is good-quality: a 10-20 minute video showing a mini-game battle between himself and Youtubers such as Deadlox, Jerome, etc. Thereo s a number of laughs every time and for that, he is worth subscribing to.


The games are also pretty entertaining: if youo re interested in seeing o Deaf hunger gameso , o The duck hunto , o Gravitrono or o Run from the beasto , then the commentator shouldn't be the problem. And if you love unnecessarily and violently abusing other people in the comments just for fun, these videos are the ones for you.


However the problem is his lack of identity. Maybe ito s the fact that he piles as many Youtubers as possible into his videos, resulting in a mass eruption of noise and chaos that sometimes makes it hard to recognise whoo s who. Maybe ito s the lack of normal, sober conversation that stops us from seeing beyond Skyo s trademark screaming and yelling. (Eg. o WARIOOOO. WARIOOOOOO.o )


Some might say ito s the disconnection between Youtuber and viewer. Unlike CaptainSparkles, he rarely does Q&A sessions, and viewers wait ages to see his face, hear him alone and really get to know him. If that doesn't bother you, fine. Maybe not properly knowing him is okay as long as he makes you laugh. But for me, ito s hard to relate to him. This may be due to how annoying I find American accents, but still.


Furthermore, the channel suffers from a drought in creativity. Perhaps some mini-game maps could be jazzed up or a twist could be added to make each game more unique and challenging. The o cops and robberso series which is long past its sell-by date could be brought to an end. Sky could diversify and bring in new adventure-map series to compete with the likes of Simon and Lewis.


Mini-game after mini-game is starting to become tiring. But thato s only my personal opinion; whato s for sure is that some viewers may be drawn to the likeability and personalities that other Youtubers may have more of. For me, Sky doesn't yet have the full package. But that could change. If he talks to his viewers a little more, my entire opinion of him could all change.

Notice how I didn't mention 'budder', because it has nothing to do with Sky as a commentator and it's certainly easy enough to avoid all of the hype around this; just don't look at the comments.

Actualy he NEVER said budder, he only says butter. Infact he also asked his subs to stop saying budder, and butter, on all mp servers, except his own. I subbed to sky because he was one the few who did GREAT, INFORMITAVE, aswell as HILARIOUS mod showcases. I also subbed to him BECUASE he did a bunch of different minigames so i could ALWAYS find a fun minigame to play. Over half the servers I play I found out about through Sky...

I subscribed to him because I liked his mod showcases. Of course, that was when he only had like 80 videos, and when he rarely did co-ops. (Mostly, he only did adventuremaps and parkour with his friends) Notice in Sky's earlier videos how he is ALOT calmer, and doesn't really scream that much.

Well.... Sky has been disappointing me lately... He used to play different minigames and mod showcases, but now it seems dat sky does the same mini games over and over again and he doesn't do any mod show cases which I loved the most. I think he lost a sky army soldier.... Whatever dat means.....

Budder is a concentrated form of THC, the main psychoactive chemical in cannabis (marijuana) that contains up to 99.7% THC and 5% o 15% total cannabinoids (THC/CBN/CBD),[1] several times more potent than the buds of the cannabis plant that are usually consumed (5%o 25 %). Notice that Budder refers to the high purity concentrate of high potency starting material. Budder is concentrated bho or butane hash oil. Some bho concentrates are of exceptionally high potency, while the precise Cannabinoid (including THC) content is especially difficult to measure accurately without sophisticated technology.

I used to like him when he first started youtube, back then he didn't overdo the screaming so it seemed genuine and the jokes he made were still fresh. Now with 10,000,000+ subscribers (most of them being useless kids), he does the same stuff over and over and over because most of the idiots who love him so dearly don't even notice and he can just wing it on every single shit video he spews out of his ass. He also has an incredibly terrible fanbase, for the most part, his fans are some of the worst people I have had the misfortune to encounter on the vast internet. He says that he had nothing to do with his fans being the way they are, that is completely false; he was their influence, their king. He is responsible for most of their actions as they are trying to be just like him. I could go on longer saying all of my valid reasons for hating him but I have to eat some lunch.

It's ironic because your username copies sky's username on youtube because it ends with 'doesminecraft' (or mc, same way of saying Minecraft) And because you're hating on him . ;-;
Edit Reply Delete
it is not Sky fault tough, it is the guys ho spammed that :/
and you know, I have seen like 100 Sky fans, and when they wanted to say butter, they simply said: hey look! I made a butter apple! or: look! I found 5 butter! and the ones I have met have never said:
BUTTER
BUDDER
BADDER
BUTTER
BUTTER
BUDDER
like spamming, it is that guy, not the army or Sky itself, only idiots butter spam like that

SkythekidRS is currently in a lot of trouble with a LOT of servers for encouraging fans to help him spam. By doing so he's been banned from Cookieslap and many other servers (on average about 50) that are popular such as Dungeon Realms. Sky is anything but a role model.

You may want to review that claim because popular servers most likely have the Mcbans plugin and a search on Mcbans have shown that sky is banned from no servers with the mcbands plugin
Edit Reply Delete
So you went on every single popular server's website and looked him up? that's not likely. Also, there are servers with custom plugins that can't use MCBans. Like CookieSlap, ShotBow and many other of the world's most renounced servers.

dude you can jst go to mcbans.com to look for people that have been banned from it and also watch the bridges number 1 he even says to stop spamming butter
Edit Reply Delete
I honestly can't believe he pulls the wall over all of your eyes so easily. He isn't going to tell people to spam butter in his videos, obviously. That would make even more people despise him. He'd do what anyone wanting to cause trouble would do (also known as not getting caught).
Edit Reply Delete
Um... he has never, in any way that I can understand, encouraged anyone to spam. The only thing he ever said about the spam was to stop. And where did you get your information on the bans, eh?

Okay, where did you find your original piece of information? (By the way, I am not part of the "sky army", I am just curious.)
Edit Reply Delete
To dislike someone based on their accent is borderline racist. Also, assuming you're European, many language professors and language scientists not just from American but from Europe and other continents as well have substantial proof that British or English accents, if you will, are incorrect pronunciations of our language while the closest to a correct interpretation would be that of us Americans. We don't bash you, don't bash us.

I'm kind of doubting that he's not doing them anymore, just a lot less. In the midst of his Mini-Game flood, he did a mod showcase, Superheroes Unlimited. If Sky said it, link me to it.
I'm also missing the Adventure Maps. I'm not even counting Epic Jump Map Tropical Edition, because he always does the new EJM when they comes out.

The thing that annoys me is Sky calling gold butter. My friend will scream in my face and yell "ITS BUTTER NOT GOLD!" if I say gold D:< so Sky REALLY should stop calling gold butter cause my friend is getting annoying.

I didn't mention the butter thing because it's got nothing to do with the quality of Sky's videos. You can very easily just ignore what his fans say in the comments and all the 'butter' stuff.

he has 3,000,000 subs. There are 7,000,000,000 people in the world. I'd say a good percentage don't know who sky is.
P.S. I did the math, and 1 person out of every 2333 people know who sky is give or take...

Given those statistics I'd have to say your calculations are incorrect. It's more like one out of every billion and a half know who he is. You didn't remove the outliers did you?
