No doubt, Facebook Gaming has a bigger viewer base and reach than Mixer did. In all the time that Mixer existed, it had grown its own community of partner streamers and Facebook Gaming has promised to respect that partner status if they want to make the transition.

Recently, Ninja and Shroud have been in the news because of the enormous amount of money they received from Mixer after they opted out of joining Facebook Gaming as a partnered streamer. Let’s face it, not all the partnered streamers on Mixer were as big as these two names.

“I’m sure they will… I don’t know all the details, the legalities of it with the contracts of state and whatnot… Be put in a position they can go wherever they want. They knocked it out of the park.”

How will all this turn out?

Honestly, there is no way to tell right now. The streamers of Mixer will now have to try their luck on Twitch or make the transition to Facebook Gaming, where there are high chances that they will get lost in the sea of streamers trying to make it big. On the other hand, there is also the possibility that the huge scope offered by these two platforms might come to their advantage. It is hard to tell at this point.
