James “HelpingHans” Whiteside, a 30 year old English veteran content creator of over 10 years now who started off streaming on Xfire before even the days of He has a fiery passion for strategy games and is very competitive at them, for instance Hans has won ESL tournaments in the past for the Company of Heroes franchise.


He also loves teaching new players about the strategy games that he plays and it’s one of the reasons HelpingHans is his handle! HelpingHans grew up on old school strategy titles like Dungeon Keeper, Command and Conquer and Age of Empires to name a few and I’m glad to see that strategy games in general are making a comeback. That being said he does enjoy playing many different genres of games as well. His goals for the future are to try and help strategy games become more popular and mainstream while having fun entertaining and teaching his audience.
