Ninja made enormous waves on the internet when he left the popular Twitch for Mixer way back in August 2019. Just after a month, Shroud also left Twitch for Mixer. However, less than a year later, after Ninja and Shroud got huge paydays to make the Mixer move, the company was then forced to shut down. After this incident, both the popular streamers wound up back on Twitch. But now Ninja is saying that it really didn’t have to be that way and believes that Mixer could’ve given Twitch a great competition.

Well, Mixer is quite a complicated topic because if you look at it properly, they brought some of the biggest streamers over the platform for a lot of money. They had the biggest faces to draw more and more people. But it really just brought some small streamers who wanted to be the next big faces in this industry.

He added ”What other platform is there at all that is just like solely live streaming that competes the Twitch.” He also brings up that embedded views or even botted views and followers have been removed completed by Twitch recently. That is why it may look like people are getting a lower amount of average viewership on the stream. At the end of the day, he asked a simple question- What else is there, anyway?
