Forums - Gaming Discussion - Ninja Leaves Twitch for Mixer.

Ninja's stream yesterday had a total of 2,350,149 unique viewers. Not bad.

The guy is set for life.The thread about this on Resetera is quite entertaining, a looooot of salty people there.



Honestly dont give a f*** about Ninja.....
I feel like this is a waste of money, why not use that $ on makeing a game instead?

Can someone confirm what I suspect but I'm not sure of? Mixer can only be watched with an Xbox right?

If so, that means people who like Ninja and don't have an Xbox are forced to buy one if they wish to continue seeing their hero or something, right?

So I never really watched Ninja cause to be blunt I don't care about Fortnite but if I did, this would be my "bye-bye" to Ninja. I'm not buying a system just to watch a guy play a game.

As for Ninja himself, he obviously got a big fat check in the mail from Microsoft but he's taking a risk cause I don't know if he alone no matter how successful, can substantially raise viewership for Mixer just by working exclusively there. I guess time will tell.

any webbrowser should work.....


Fornite on Mixer = 48k viewers
Fornite on Twitch = 145k viewers

Mixer and Xbox divisions are different parts of MS. So the $50m used here would have not gone to a game.

Because MS wants people to go and watch streams on their platform. it means they need to bring big names over there. It is an investment, not a waste.



I seriously doubt the number is actually $50m. I'm gonna need official confirmation, or something very close to it, before I believe that.

Edit - On second thought, I could see $50m over 5-6 years. Or, maybe like a base of $5m per year, with a bunch of incentives that could bring the theoretical max to $50m.

I saw a tweet a few days ago that it's $10m per year and that the contract is 5 years.

That seems relatively reasonable.  



So its the 3rd day now....

And Twitch has like ~180k viewers of fortnite.... while Mixer has ~30k.

Ninja is at 22k @Mixer atm.
While theres a guy with 51k called Tfue , and another called alonzoka (25k) on Twitch.

Ninja used to be the biggest fornite streamer right (on twitch)?
Now theres like 2-3 people bigger than him (atm).

This move doesnt make sense, unless Ninja got paid really well.
