In August, we could report that Tyler & # 39; Ninja & # 39; Blevins left Twitch to bet on the Mixer. Now another star is doing the same thing, namely Michael & # 39; Shroud & # 39; Grzesiek
Shroud said that viachirp. He is best known for broadcasting Counter-Strike: Global Offensive, Apex Legends and even Fortnite. If you want to follow it in the future, you must do so through the Mixer channel, where it is already in full swing.
Ninja also commented on the case and write that this is a "Seriously a massive move for the platform and the streaming industry. Excited to watch more of your broadcasts!"
Ninja's wife and manager, Jessica Blevins, explained why they chose to change formats in a Business Insider interview and said that "money was the last thing on our mind".
"It's like they don't even know what happened behind the scenes and how we tried to make this business work – and then how amazing Microsoft was to us.
"With the wording of how this contract was going, he would not have been able to expand his brand far outside of the games. There were already conflicts with his current sponsors and the resignation of that platform. And we thought: 'Guys, we worked hard to grow the Ninja brand to license things and spread his name. We can't go back with that. "So that's when this deal really didn't start to make sense."
Shroud himself also comments the case to CNN:
"Switching to Mixer allows me to focus on what I love: games. It allows me to focus on the live stream for my fans and engage directly with more interactivity and variety."
