    Smart Move Ninja. I stream on Mixer. Twitch is way too overrated/over-saturated.
    Over saturated being key, there is plenty of room for other stream services. Not a fan of Fortnight, but good for him.

    The guy is a joke anyways there is a vid of him trying to get people in NYC for new years to do the floss with him (its quite funny the result), i mean he has all these SUBS (apparently millions) but his video turn out is less than something like 20k total live views or some crap.




    Warframe Dev Streams rake in close to 200k people and they dont have 1million subs yet!




    Twitch is for THOTS and hipocrisy thats it! If ur a game streamer u be hard pressed to get up there properly i mean look at Alinity she chucked her cat blatantly and tried to pass it off as placing him gently behind her and also let it taste vodka from her mouth no ban.... Blondie Wondie doing a live stream while driving went over the speed limit cops pulled her over no ban a guy named Knut had done a live stream while driving put his streaming device in his lap and got banned for reckless driving for 7 days by twitch (whether he was or not remains to be seen)....




    The site is a joke those thots must be sucking off Jeff Bezos or something along those lines to stay on the platform..... i wouldnt be surprised if Twitch gets taken down because some stupid crap will happen like someone committing a nefarious deed!






    Last weeks Warframe dev stream had 60k viewers, and they don't have 1million followers. They have 0 subs.



    If you think twitch will get taken down because someone broke the law on it, you mustve forgotten that a guy streamed a mass murder on facebook. facebook still exists.



    twitch is streamed to millions of viewers everyday (majority are horny men and teenagers) who watches facebook streams? you forget facebook is policed twitch is not (i mean those horny guys could goto chatterbate and get extra for the duckets they pour into twitch thots), the twitch staff work on wimsy if its a hot women they can do what they want if its a guy streaming his videogame they will come down like a ton of bricks. ill bet something major will happen pretty soon which will change the ToS if not take down twitch because its out of hand with double standards!
    None of the top, or even close to it, streamers are girls showing their bits. Not sure where your data for "majority are horny men and teenagers" came from but I'm guessing you're just having a bad day so you make shit up. 

    I hope your day gets better man. Get some sleep, drink more water.
    Sounded like he was deflecting to me. What a moronic comment. Most normal people go to twitch and other game streaming sites to watch .....duh duh duh!....game play of games they like!

    It's an interesting move to be honest, even with the large amount of negative comments coming from the people who usually hate streamers here. 

    Ninja moving to Mixer will potentially bring a relatively large community to another streaming platform. I personally would love it if another streaming platform would get large, as Twitch is ran by people who don't follow a specific rulebook, and change the rules up all the time to fit what they want to happen. 

    We need more services on this type of entertainment to be there early on, or we end up in another Youtube situation where no matter how good the service running against it is, the bigger platform will always prevail. 

    Mixer as a platform has a lot of nice features, and all of the streaming clients tend to support it already. I don't know if Ninja moving alone will cause a bigger viewership on there, but it's definitely a start. 
    If theres one thing this forum hates more than streamers, its new services infringing on existing monopolies. These people lose their minds whenever someone (like epic) challenges steams stranglehold on the entire PC gaming economy.

    It's almost like this website attracts old, conservative... communists? Then again they rage anytime China is mentioned too.

    Like it or not there is big money in the Streaming business.

    If he is switching platforms... then Microsoft must have paid him a bonus to make the jump. At the end of the day it's all business.

    Good decision to move, I guess. I mean, why would you stream video games on a soft-porn site anyway.

    Well its not fact persay (do you have fact to prove otherwise?) but i can have a good guess out of all the LIVE viewers watching the majority of them are watching twitch thots since they make up the majority (in terms of "content" creators) of twitch now..... its probably one of the reasons why ninja is moving platform. the only thing I watch on twitch is warframe devstream because i find the site very toxic because of its apparent lack of set rules for ALL and not "some for u some for them and some for the elite mind set".

    The policing on the site is very lax when it comes to a certain group because the "horny"/"thirsty" guys that are watching them are paying through the eye of the needle in bits/straight dono's (its why they have their own set of rules because they bring in the money) its ludicrous... its fact the site isnt what it used to be it was originally set up for game streamers not this "REAL LIFE bull crap

    I'm curious what this will bring because in all honesty, twitch is turning into a shit show.

    All I can see from this, mixer gets bigger and twitch needs to step up or they can go next to own3d tv and shut down.

    I'm so glad I have no idea who this kid is and nor do I care. Skipping over the YouTube/Twitch sensation has been one of the smartest decisions I've made. I'll stick to playing games instead of watching other people play them.

    I don't see Mixer ending up any differently.

    He seems to stream a lot of other games. I know he was there when LotRO launched their Legacy servers and streamed a few weeks there. I've heard of him doing some others. I've never watched him though. I'm not much of a streaming fan. Twitch is where I watch some dev update streams. Mostly I use YouTube if I want to see videos of game play.

    Microsoft always seems to come late to the party with all their "me too!" lame attempts. How are Windows phones selling these days I wonder? It's also been a long time since last I saw a Surface add. Did they finally give up on that too? Mixer exclusives...lol.

    He can go wherever he wants, maybe MS will pay him more to stream only on mixer.

    The sad thing is how companies now measure the success of their games on how many people watch a stream instead of how good the game is to make people want to play it.

    Seriously, am I alone in the "games are to be played not watched" camp? The fact is half the wannabe streamers cant play anything worth shyte yet they get tons of supposed followers because "they're zany personalities" that would get ppl walking on the other side of the street to avoid them in the real world.

    I can see a use for streaming as a hype builder for upcoming games, but I'd rather see the devs play it and get a true sense of the product then some putz in a beenie surrounded by green screen singing its praises as he flexes on worse players.

    Pantheon is a great example of what I see twitch being useful for...building hype and answering questions for an indie niche mmorpg that wont cater to everyone, and in fact will cater to very few tastewise (but they wont come right out and say who exactly they're catering to because if it's not you they still want your pre-purchase dollars). But, they ruin it with the Elmo of twitch, cohhcarnage, the king of fake shockface and cringy commentary being their pet pro streamer.

    I wont even get started on tabletop rpg streams and "DM to the stars" hyperbole.

    You're not alone. You just don't enjoy something that millions of other people enjoy. Your opinion definitely doesn't make you superior to anyone that enjoys it or the streamers themselves. I mean, you are typing in an MMORPG forum complaining about streamers and the people that watch them.

    This is why I'm trying to be less and less active on this forum. Some of the comments are just... I'm scared that when I get a little bit more older and have kids etc, I'll become like this too. I don't wanna hate anything new or bash anyone who likes different things than me.  This is really scary. I'm really sorry for you...

    Meh to each their own, but I'm not going to care about streamers until they go critical mass and decide to fight for clicks for real and too the death in a cage match, Thunderdome style.
