TimTheTatman explains the greatness of Ninja

During his latest stream, a viewer on TimTheTatman’s chat rejected his claims of Ninja changing the industry forever. After reading the message, he asked him to give his reasoning, to which he replied that he was an ‘OCD kid who got lucky’. Following this comment, Tim gave some interesting insight into why Ninja was so great, even if some people don’t like his content.

“Even if you don’t like Ninja, you cannot deny that he changed the entire streaming industry, quite literally.”

He then gave more details about his success on different games, like H1Z1 and Fortnite. TimTheTatman also gave more points about his hard work and determination being the reason for his success and not luck. Along with that, he also explained how his 80 hours-a-week streams allowed him to reach celebrity status. This gave him a chance to play with mainstream stars like rappers Travis Scott and Drake.

“Obviously he played with Drake, and that whole thing happened, and that’s not luck. That is him putting the time in. That dude was streaming 80 hours like a week, it was crazy at that time.”
