Ninja Quits Twitch

Recommended Posts

Good, sadly twitch is too big to become irrelevant but the site is trash and people who run twitch are even more so. Ninja just got his retirement money :D. I checked out this mixer site and it feels good idk if many people will switch though, we will see.

I like this switch. I use mixer a lot for paladins etc, and i use it a lot more than twitch. It has some really good features but twitch is just so large and easy to access and use.
I think its a massive massive power play and crazy that mixer has pulled this off. However mixer are known for dropping  enormous amounts of cash on sponsors and rights to events/games/streamers.

This has definitely cost Mixer (owned by Microsoft) millions of dollars if not tens of millions.

i don't know where they get the money from. They've paid a huge amount in the past towards rights to stream some pretty unpopular games like paladins. Ninja is a step up

I'm happy to see a company pose an actual threat to Twitch. Hope they do well and don't flop immediately.

 

I hope to see a similar website provide an actual alternative to YouTube.

Mixer is actually higher quality and less delay 90% of the time. It also seems to load faster on my mobile data versus Twitch... probably superior compression technology; I don't know. It's more gaming focused and seems less toxic. When I start streaming FPS games again I might quit Twitch as well and focus on Mixer.

 

This is a great sign for Mixer and Microsoft. Microsoft is agressively expanding their gaming businesses with stuff like Mixer and Project xCloud, acquiring/opening dozens of new game development studios, and doubling up on Game Pass for both PC and XBOX.

 

Competition breeds breakthroughs. It's never been a better time to be a gamer.

Never really enjoyed Ninja as a content creator (prefer more chill streamers), but I do admire the man's business sense and work ethic, no doubt he negotiated a massive contract with Mixer to make the switch, he was slowly falling off in terms of viewers/subs so great move on his part to capitalise on how much he blew up last year.

 

Now he'll be top dog again, albeit on a different platform, and as others have mentioned Twitch will have to step up and take notice that although Mixer doesn't have anywhere near the market share they aren't afraid to pull stunts like this to acquire talent and get their name out there.
