The news came a few days after Shroud (aka Michael Grzesiek) switched to Mixer, and nearly three months after Ninja (Tyler Blevins) made his move.
Terms of the trade were not disclosed, although free subscriptions suggest that Gothalion and other former Twitch streamers are receiving certain guarantees of stability for their finances and views. In many ways, though, agreements can be less about money and more about flexibility. Ninja's wife and manager, Jessica Blevins, claimed that Twitch was limiting the potential for licensing deals and otherwise would not respond to requests. In other words, these large streamers may feel that they have more room to grow in the Mixer and are willing to risk a loss of short term viewers in the process.
