    If you had the choice of making millions playing a game or going to work everyday busting your butt / body for less than 1/10th of that income what would you choose?  I dont care how people make money as long as they are paying their taxes and not cheating the system.  I do think its insane that people can make that kinda money streaming, but companies must be making a ton of the advertising....Its like when a football player makes $25 mil / year.  If people think its ridiculous then dont goto games, watch on TV, or buy merchandise.

    Just curious if anyone knows. This idiot has a lot of subscribers, there's a really good chance that a large portion of his subs just re-upped their subs within the last few days. Is Amazon offering refunds on this or did Ninja take all the sub money and run? If this is the case, then that's the real story here.

    The money goes to Amazon first, so if anyone gets a refund it will be through them. Streamers themselves are just contractors.

    They will just stop their subs on Twitch and do it on Mixer, if they resub at all... but he's probably getting paid enough to not have to work ever again just for doing the exclusive deal.  Just this news is a big win for Mixer.

    Personally, I think Mixer is a better platform - from the perspective of a spectator - than Twitch, easily... it's just that most everyone is on Twitch and won't leave cause... why?

    Twitch has too much soft porn/cam girls (aka booby streamers) on the site, now...  I barely consider it a place for gamers.  I'm pretty sure Twitch will offer one of them an exclusive deal soon, to one-up Mixer :-P

    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.

    Honestly, I didn't really care much for Ninja until I found out that he was a big FFXI player back in the day, so he has my respect. He was even advocating and willing to support SE making FFXI classic servers (financially).

    Pretty soon Twitch will be nothing but cam girl Thots selling their bath water while doing a live stream of them milking their breasts.

    Regardless the bitter comments here, in the mainstream gaming world and gaming streaming this is a big deal.

    I'm curious to see how the community (numbers) react to this. If his brand can carry viewers there or people use twitch the same way they use to watch tv: Because they are too lazy to switch channels.
    Oh please.  If any person with half a brain watches this kid stream for 5 min they'll quickly realize what a twot he is.  He's an arrogant prick with zero coordination and athleticism yet he's labeled an esports athlete... Hilarious.  The guy is a dickhead who treats people in his community horribly and other streamers even worse.  In other words he is a shitty human being.  

    Mainstream gaming world and streaming... pff.  If this is a "big deal" than the gaming industry is in even worse shape than I thought.

    Are the gaming community supposed to know who this guy is?

    So What Now?

    This is huge news and I am glad this website reported it. I would be willing to bet that Mixer has or will approach Doc Disrepect and Shroud as well. Twitch has become a "lewd" show.

    A few streamers on Twitter said that the reason he and others are doing it is because Twitch treats their streamers like garbage. If they take a day off at all they lose a chuck of their profits... this way Ninja can still stream and take vacations with his wife and kid every now and then. I didn't look into it more but a few streamers said this.

    The comments pretty much sum up the MMORPG genre at the moment.

    Its one of those really weird phenomena, that she was selling her bath water is one thing, but the most shocking thing of all, is that she sold so much of it, i don't know whether should bow down to her entrepeneurship, or laugh at all the idiots who bought it  :p

    I don't understand the audience of people who watch live stream gaming, Twitch has always been really difficult for me to get into, but I do watch plenty of content on YouTube. From what I understand, it's been easier for gamers to transition from YouTube to Twitch for monetization, as advertising dollars have been so heavily restricted. Add that to the rumors regarding what it's been like for certain individuals to work with Twitch lately, and I think it's sure bet that high dollar streamers or content creators will start looking for other platforms to set up shop, I'm just not sure that a single person making the switch is going to be enough to achieve the sort of result Mixer is looking for.

    With all the youtube adpocalipses, moving to, or at least also having alternate streaming and video hosting services seems to be the way forward, Twitch has competition, has done for a little while now, whether its DLive or Mixer or some other and i am sure there are a few more besides those, it is probably just a sign of the free market at work, some streamers actually stream simultaneously on multiple platforms, it has always been about the streamers, the platform used does not matter all that much to their fans, nor the games for that matter, popular Streamers are much like pop stars. Crazy world we live in these days. :/

    I don't like where this streaming culture is going. I don't even like where it stands right now. And I'm saying this as someone who does watch streams. Not for the streamer, but for the game.
    Though I can see how games put a part of their communication and marketing in the hands of those streamers which is complete BS to me. If I want to be communicated with I want the devs to find a direct channel with me through videos, podcasts, dev blogs etc. Not through a guy on a stream rolling ads in my face and who parrots everything the devs want to say.

    I have never even heard of this guy until now, but then I wasn't raised with the current generation.  I would rather spend my time playing games instead of watching someone play.

    Seriously, am I alone in the "games are to be played not watched" camp? 
    That could be said about sports right?

    People love "watching sports." Yet sports are there to be played. I'd argue that it's more fun to play a sport than to watch a sport but I have been caught up in the action of a football or soccer game so clearly there is some enjoyment.

    Same with video games. I've found myself caught up in what was happening so I'd say that it's just a different experience.

    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...
    um, no one can make you think something you don't want to think so I wouldn't really fret.
