Hold up, when was this?
Used to have it bookmarked in the main thread.

He streamed himself one night around pillstream 1 on Soph's youtube channel, pulling up random vids, pausing and breathing heavy. His own stream thought he might have been hacked and thought about calling a wellness check on him because it was so out of the ordinary.

He also went on to stream cuphead very, very poorly after

I would argue that the worst mistake has to be one where it created a point of no return for Ralph. Dumb decisions like fucking up his relationship with Nora, starting the Ralph Retort, and having a substance abuse problem were all things that Ralph could recover from, if he wanted to. Two mistakes come to mind to have irreparably fucked Ralph's life:

1. Taking that swing at the policewoman. Having a felony conviction in addition to his heavy online presence essentially means that Ralph can never return to ordinary employment. He's dependent on the existence of the Killstream and his online brand to keep him alive.

2. Impregnating Faith. Everything he did surrounding Faith and the Mr. Vickers saga was deeply embarrassing, but ultimately just that: embarrassing. Leaving behind a child for no other reason than you wanted to raw-dog a mentally unstable eighteen year old and saddling yourself with eighteen years of child support payments is something he just can't come back from. The Vickers' demon spawn cannot be undone, and likely will be his genetic legacy that survives him on this terrible, terrible planet.

I also agree with the posters that suggest that Ralph being born was a mistake, but that's Ronnie's fault.

Not paying Zidan, he was the Broken pillar that held it all up, when he went on his extended vacation to Chainaa (hell be back Monday guys don't worry) The whole show when to shit.

Or, im double dipping here.

Fucking a mentally unstable teenager and impregnating her.
People forget that Bouldergate was all down to Zidan, who didn't utter a word for nearly an hour untill he demanded Jarbo produce his flagging history. He even sent him a link so he had no excuse.

All the big name guests Metokur, Dick etc respected Zidan, and seemed happy to let him act as producer. In the end though he didn't need the Killstream, and Ralph didn't have the same hold over him like he did with Flamenco and Gator. I don't even think it was about money, it was just the lack of respect of demanding someones time and then turning up drunk or high.

I'll begin, not by choosing "being born" , but by going with promoting Rand from caller to co-host. This destroyed any ability to claim that the killstream was simply a very open discussion forum and relegated an unemployable Ethan to the far right grift scene with progressively (heh) fewer financial support options and an audience that the powers that be are actively trying to drive off of the internet, setting us up for the impulsive desperation that fueled so many story arcs to date.
It wasn't Rand it was Ralph. If you watch Flamenco's stream with Null, Geno Samuel and Rand, you can see that Rand could be tard wrangled when people actually did the work.

This was just as Geno Samuel was starting his series on Chris Chan, so Flamenco invited him on along with Null, and for whatever reason Randbot.

Randbot is genuinely really good, the show has a very slow start, but eventually Null and Rand get Geno talking and it really takes of.

It would take 5 fucking minutes before a show, to talk to Rand and check if he's been drinking. The Gunt is either too fucking lazy or too drunk himself to do it.

Josh spoke with Zidan and got the answer. He decided he could either be a successful IRL guy or a successful streamer and chose wisely. It didn't have as much to do with Ralph or his alcoholism as we usually assume

Rand's performance as a host isn't what I was getting at. You can air his views as a caller and successfully claim "we're just a neutral platform where anyone can express anything." Adding him officially to the show as a host does, in fact, co-sign everything the man says unless you go out of your way to refute all of his /pol/ talking points every time he makes them. "Hey Rand, don't say the n-word on air" doesn't challenge 99% of the content of what he says, and nobody was willing to do more than that.

And c'mon man, you picked like the one time Rand showed up to stream sober

Ralph's biggest mistake was getting into Internet Blood Sports to begin with. IBS, for all it's success, was always going to be a fad. It was something that could bring in money for a while, but nothing that you could do long-term. IBS relied on shock value, so when it faded into the sunset, the main IBS personalities had to do more and more shocking things to keep their relevance. Ralph included. The fact that the main IBS personalities were really stupid to begin with, only played into their downfall. There is a reason why most of the IBS personalities quickly became lolcows, and remain lolcows long after IBS died.

I mostly agree. There's a reason why these clowns decided that IRL streaming was the next venture. And look at where that got Baked Alaska. At this point Ralph is basically begging for a jail sentence.

Ralph can't "return to ordinary employment" because he's never had a job.

Also his biggest mistake was indeed knocking up Faith.

Taking his first sip of alcohol.
Honestly can any of us truely say that any mistake Ralph has made wasn't made whiles he was under the influnce.

Ralph puts on boring shit shows due to the bottle.
Ralph lost his freedom and condemned himself as feleon due to the bottle.
Ralph lost Nora to the bottle.
Ralph has a gunt due to the bottle.
Ralph had the pillstreams due to the bottle.
Ralph posted the sex tape due to the bottle.
Ralph assaulted his child bride due to the bottle.
Ralph can't aquire an income that doesn't involve grifting all due to bottle.

I struggle to imagine a single major mistake that Ralph has made that can't be all traced back to alcohol and his alcoholism.
