realPhali, also known as Phali and formerly DuffHimself is a affiliated streamer on Twitch. He originally began streaming in 2016, but retired in early 2017 due to several reasons. He returned in February 2019, and became a Twitch Affiliate the following month.

While he originally streamed Garry's Mod and first-person shooters, his stream have since 2019 been almost exclusively Minecraft. During one of his streams, he attributed this to wanting to be more family friendly now that he has children.

Biography[edit | edit source]

Phali was born in April 1990 in Norway, and originally began streaming under the name DuffHimself in 2015 after requests from friends. During an early stream, he stated that he became the designated streamer in his group of friends because he "had the best internet and the only computer capable of streaming at decent quality". In early 2017, Phali stopped streaming to focus on his upcoming house project and the imminent birth of his son. In February 2019, he returned to Twitch, with his channel rebranded realPhali - based on his in-game name Phali. In one of his first streams, he said he rebranded his channel because he wanted it to be a fresh start, and that he wanted to separate his newer streams and videos from his older, less-family-friendly content. In March 2019, Phali confirmed that he had become a Twitch Affiliate. On March 25, he surpassed 100 followers during his evening stream.

Phali usually streams from the BUTTSCraft SMP Server, launched on March 19, 2019, of which he is a staff member. Prior to this he usually streamed from the LPMT SMP Server, owned by Xisumavoid, but March 2019, he announced he would take a break from LPMT to focus on getting the Buttscraft server off to a good start, and due to time constraints.
