Thumbnails (YouTube) - are they underestimated?

Hi guys,

I'm trying to get some information & tricks, how the YT thumbnail for game hacking niche should look like.
In my understanding thumbs should be as importantly treated as descriptions,
because it's the first thing visitors get to see from your video.

But I haven't found much information here, what makes a good thumbnail
for our purpose. Some say, it's important to have the faked counters on the thumb. Also I read, that the word "update" should be on the thumb.

Any tricks & opinions on this would be appreciated.

Thanks,
Chris

Hello mate, good question.

Something like this looks good to me:

I`m using this system to create thumb:

Open Camtasia studio
Google HD backgrounds or niche related photos
Google PNG images/txt related to niche / to add on background
Use LightShot to print screen in Camtasia
Save print screen as image/thumb

Thank you Master Watt
I thought also about adding a attractive person showing emotion on the thumbnail. I'm not sure if that works. (I got a strike on that video.
So I stopped that). That was the thumbnail: hxxps://i.imgur.com/AEyb54B.png
(sorry can't post clickable link) What do you think?

Hey mate, I`m not sure about this, but there is not lot of marketers who do it like shown on your example.
You have nothing to lose by uploading this again.
Do it again and reduce your desc to half of max letters allowed.
CR is saturated niche and you should target long tail keywords, I mean this would perform best.

Also you should reply to me like this:
Or type when reply Watt @ 'name' (with no space @')
Or press reply: http://prntscr.com/fxm39y http://prntscr.com/fxm3mb

This is how I can be notified about your reply.
This time I checked your thread manually.

Thumbnail for hacking niche should have the game image in the background with simple text written like "The Game is Hacked" Learn how to do it something like that! Thumbnail and title is very important.

Game art in the background and some stupid hacking stuffs written into it would be perfect!

Thumbs are very important. The coolest thumb you have you will get more views and leads. Youtube is almost clickbait now. You can use some hacked texts in the thumb and game art in the background.
