A Friend (also known as EraserGaming on YouTube) is a veteran player of RuneScape and also a video maker. His real life name is Dovydas and he lives in Siauliai, Lithuania. 

On the 21st January 2014 he achieved 99 Divination, thus recieving a Completionist Cape.

He was born in the early 1990, and has two siblings; brother and a sister , both of which play or have played RuneScape. 

YouTube

He had reached 100,000 subscribers in May 2013. His channel is currently the most subscribed RuneScape content channel in the world created by a Lithuanian; as of September 7, 2017, he has over 376,000 Subscribers.

He has stated that he makes his living off his YouTube contract. In fact, according to him he has made even more than doctors do in Lithuania.[1]

His channel got famous primarily from his "loot from 10 hours of..." videos, as well as most PvM related videos and guides. Jagex presented him the Golden Gnome award for "Best Guide" during RuneFest 2013.[2]

He used to upload gaming videos of Playstation Portable and Playstation 1, but deleted them due to his RuneScape videos being more popular. In addition to RuneScape, he also plays or has played League of Legends, World of Warcraft and osu.[3]

He also has a secondary YouTube account named PCtrainers.

RuneScape

Most of the videos he has uploaded in the past were PvM related, however in Old School RuneScape he has also been doing a bit of PvP. As of now, he has maxed stats, including Divination.

On Old School RuneScape he also has relatively decent stats. In the first few months of playing he had already achieved level 90 in some of the combat skills, and on God Wars Dungeon release he had made over 80M.[4]

After visiting Jagex, he received Player Moderator status.[5] He also visited Jagex along with select other players in May 2014 to test the Legacy Mode alpha due to launch in 2014 Summer.

On 14 September 2015, A Friend uploaded a video stating his Player Moderator status has been revoked due to a prior video he posted regarding phished items.[1] It is currently unknown if his Player Moderator status will be reinstated.

Shortly after the release of Hardcore Ironman Mode in Old School RuneScape, A Friend created a new account to explore the new game mode. His character, white cat22, became renowned for his efficiency, high stats, and ability to avoid death. He constantly uploaded videos highlighting his progress. Unfortunately, almost a year after he created his account, his character was killed during a fight with the Deranged Archaeologist, a new boss released with the Fossil Island update. He still continues to play on and upload videos of this account. Instead of referring to white cat22 as a regular Ironman, he calls his character an "ex-Hardcore Ironman".

Real life

In mid 2013 he bought an apartment, which he bought completely from the earnings of his YouTube career. He made a video thanking his subscribers for helping him reach his goal, all of which praised him for his valiant effort and work and achievements.

He uses Sony Vegas, Fraps and/or Camtasia to edit and record his videos. To record his commentary he uses Audix CX-112B microphone, and RME Babyface audio interface[6]

He upgraded his computer's specifications in late year 2013.

In June 2015, he stated his intention to leave Lithuania because he was selected for military duty, but later decided to remain in Lithuania, while reporting Latvia as his country of residence to the authorities.
