Good for him but he's still a fucking asshole who throws temper tantrums when he loses a match and threatens guys who are better than him with banning them from the game through his contacts at Epic. He's a little bitch. A rich bitch, but a bitch.

Every other stream outside of his on mixer still has embarrassing numbers, and I don‘t think his deal will change anything outside of only him continuing to get huge numbers(till it drops below 40k per stream) there and money. Mixer will still be left in the dust by twitch.

I think you are wrong. Ninja is a GOD to Fortnite kids, everything he touches is holy for them. They'll all flog to Mixer.

But they will ONLY watch him and thats it. Nobody else is gonna benefit, and as soon as his stream ends they leave. And besides his popularity already was dropping on twitch, because he only can own normal casual lobbies, when it came to actual competitive fortnite 16 and 13 year old players outplayed him, qualified over him and won the fortnite cup.

Thats why Tfue was having more views everytime in the last weeks.

I can't believe that streaming yourself playing videogames can get you 50+ mil. $!
I mean, good for him, but isn't that just little overpaying. Not like he found the cure for aids or something.

Looked up current Mixer viewers.

Right now the top four streams on the whole site are.

MonstercatRadio 7k viewers
PaladinsGame 2.8k
Dude streaming a Fishing sim with 211 viewers
4th highest stream on mixer 64 viewers lmao.

Those 500k free subs Ninja is boasting about will go down significantly next month and those numbers won't help MS establishing Mixer as any kind of Twitch threat at all.

Those millions could have been spent on more worthwile things, instead of just makin Ninja richer.

It was a good play to make people move to mixer. Mixer has some good features but the viewers arent there. So i totally agree. Microsoft has to try though.

Not many people want to pay to watch scientists develop a cure for aids. It's just like all entertainment, demand determines the price.

If a bear farts in the woods... But no one hears it, did it really happen? 🤔

(disclaimer: I don't give a rats ass about streaming platforms or this pseudo celeb bullshit... But hey I do realize some people do...)

The news got me to go and check out mixer if nothing else and the site layout wasn't half bad.

But its probably gonna take a hell of lot more than just one streamer to move all the people who are already dedicated to twitch.

Tweet is unavailable. That’s why you always need to make screenshots and post those, stop being lazy.
The tweet is still available for me.

It must be a problem at your end. Stop being lazy and fix your internet/browser issues.



And don't tell me not to be lazy!

If this somehow gets mixer more attention and lets it become an actual competitor to twitch, I'm all for that.

Fuck twitch and its monopoly.

Checked his stream multiple times while watching evo, he had 30k at most. Tfue had more on twitch same time. xD Nice investment MS.

Well.....finding the cure to AIDs would be worth ALOT more than $50 million. That's a multi-billion dollar cure you're are talking about.

My dear, Wattson, I believe this is a case of Hoes Mad.
If MS wants to "actually" compete with Twitch and Youtube, they will HAVE to change this clothing policy. It's just that plain and simple. This isn't some Middle Eastern Islamic streaming site!

And stop hating on good looking women. Don't be mad at them because they get views due to their assets.

Did you even bother to read the guidelines in their entirety? if you had, you'd notice this is for any and all genders and is set up in a tiered fashion. You are as misinformed and shortsighted as the ratioed yas queen in the tweet.

I think what ninja really got out of the deal is equity and a consultant position for the future of mixer. Which is a real job vs letting twitch control my work life because ninja was being to nice to them.

I don't care that it's for all genders. It's still a stupid policy "IF" you want to be as big as Twitch some day. If MS wants Mixer to be a lower to mid-level sized streaming site, then the policy is okay. It's like coming out with a new physical media type for movies and banning porn on it.
