Back in the day i like to mix my contents (e.g. Vlogging, tutorials, unboxing, etc.) I made it to 1k subscribers because of 2d intro design. Then i decided to turn it into a gaming channel and my views drop rapidly. How about yours did it happened the same thing?

If everyone subbed because they want to see 2d intro designs, but you start making gaming content instead, those people won't watch your content.

You also lose channel authority as it takes time for YouTube to understand, that you are making gaming videos now. But looking at your channel, you seem to have established yourself well with your new gaming content.

The thing is, if people watch your videos for the content alone, they are unlikely to stick around if you do different content. That's why you want to make your channel unique, with your commentary, personality, editing, humour, or whatever. Just something that makes people want to stick around. So either you keep your content or your delivery consistent. If you don't plan a channel longterm, nobody wants to stick around longterm.

I agree with @Dr Pixel Plays .

By reading I understand that the earlier Content and present content are different . Even if I were your earlier Subscriber , I would too unsubscribe.

It’s always told you decide your Niche but do what you enjoy . Not just for subscribers . No problem if they are gone . If you continue with your fixed content , you will get your new subscribers.

Just do what you like and stick to it . Niche . Study your uniqueness.

All the best!

umm, i'm not entirely sure, but i've learned that if you wanna succeed (kind of), you need to stick to a certain niche so your viewers know what to expect, or to have an idea of what's next. hope this helps!

(p.s. i do gaming, and sometimes i do vlogs.)

I wouldn't change my direction. No wondering having a vlogging/tutorial/unboxing channel that turned into gaming saw your views drop rapidly. If I saw a channel that did vlogging or unboxing, do gaming without any real explination, I'd assume they've been hacked and unsubscribe.

If you want to really change content direction, it's usually better to just start a whole new channel all together, but it also seems to be symptom of sub and view chasing. Doing things hoping to get views has always been pretty "meh" in my mind. If it's what you love, then go for it, but if your passions have changed significantly, just start a new channel.
