    word on the street is that he got over 500 mil USD for the transfer! what do you guys think? far-fetched or not? I think its reasonable- considering MS deep pockets.

    You mean the shill streaming site is losing its biggest shill to a competitors shill streaming site?



    Awesome! This is the quality news we all come here to read......a person whose existence is entirely dependant on the game industry sucking so bad that under developed BR games are somehow....popular.



    I defended this site in another thread about broadening it's content coverage to compensate for the sad state the mmo genre is in. But this is scraping the absolute bottom of the barrel afaic.






    LOL I know...

    BR games are such trash and this guy is the epitome of human trash and those who play BR are also trash.
    I don't like BR Games myself but calling other people Trash because of the games they like to play is pretty Ignorant.
    Just because someone likes the Games you do not like does not make them Trash.

    Seriously though, I love this, Not so much because I'm a fan of this "Ninja" kid but more so because Twitch has become a vile platform, With this kids following the streaming site he went to has gained a tremendous amount of power over night just from signing him, This is the Lebron James of E Sports we are talking about. 

    I recently discovered this boobie streamer from Canada who threw her cat over her chair, force spit vodka into its mouth and has slew of other accusations . Despite multiple animal groups and her local animal society calling for her ban Twitch has not only failed to take any action against her but won't even issue a public statement regarding the matter. There are thousands of other streamers who's accounts were either suspended or permanently banned for much less.

       Twitch has a long history of biased and political based moderating which I wont go into detail here for obvious reasons. Many of the larger streamers are fed up with what the site has become/becoming and are chomping at the bit to move their "enterprise" some place else. Ninja will be the first in what i believe will be many more Big name ""professional gamers"" to jump ship.

       Twitch's Inevitable decline is not a matter of If but when. Their own foolish bias and what they have turned their website into "just chatting/soft core porn girls" has left many with a sour taste in their mouth. Eventually the parent company Amazon will be forced to intervene.

    "Get back in touch with my roots" .... I think he's full of shit. Translation: "Microsoft bought me an Island, so peace Twitch" Not that I care where he streams, but he's full of it.

    People that stream games are wannabes.  They don't have the where with all to play the game themselves.  As to the streamers, kids who live in a dreamworld.  Saw on a resume the other day, someone put down they had a streaming following.  That resume went into the trash fast.

    Fuck Ninja. Fuck streaming. The last thing society needs are more useless celebrities.ud
    Do you watch sports?  Same thing.  Only your giving the owner the money, not the player.  

    Sounds like a lot of people on here are a bit peeved they aren't great at video games and can't make bank doing it.

    The dudes been making cash off games all his life and runs it like a business with his wife.  But hey, lets just bash pro-gamers because it isn't a job because you know, some people can get paid to do what they enjoy or are at least good at (maybe he hates all games, a lot of sports player don't love the game anymore they love the cash because they are good enough at it)

    This is kinda reminding me of the old days of the battle of the networks (which is still kinda ongoing, but, people are more used to that)

    "Back in my day, we had 3 channels, and we liked it that way"

    Anyway.. good luck to him and his venture.

    Good to see gaming becoming more mainstream as time passes on, and entering the Entertainment and Professional fields.

    No idea why people flock to watch him,i think mostly they see a large audience and just hangout.

    I feel like he has always been sponsored by Epic but not announcing it.Now he is  sponsored by Microsoft,no other reason to just change up your routine when you are making so much money.So i would assume Microsoft is paying him a lot of money,kind of douchy to me how businesses try to BUY their way to the top.

    No matter to me,i only watched him once to see what it is all about and there is nothing there,he is a meaningless streamer to me.
