Following a chain of hugely popular personalities leaving Twitch, Jeremy ‘DisguisedToast’ Wang has teased that he might be the next to transition away from the streaming platform.

From Tyler ‘Ninja’ Blevins and Michael ‘shroudGrzesiek shifting over to Mixer, and Jack ‘CouRage’ Dunlop now streaming exclusively on YouTube, competition has never been healthier between major content creation platforms.

It appears as though the number of Twitch departures will continue to grow in the very near future as popular streamer and Offline TV member, DisguisedToast, has cryptically suggested a transition of his own could be coming soon.

YouTube: Disguised ToastDisguised Toast initially grew to fame due to his sensational Hearthstone content.
 

In a November 20 Tweet, the streamer shared that there will be an “announcement this Friday” regarding his future home as a content creator.

I want to tell YOU all something. It’s time to FACE the facts. I have to MIX things up,” he amusingly expressed, hinting at three major competitors to Twitch in the form of YouTube, Facebook Live, and Mixer respectively.

The post could be looked back on as a complete misdirection, however with fellow Offline TV superstar Imane ‘Pokimane‘ Anys also hinting at a groundbreaking announcement, there’s no denying that a massive shift is imminent. 

 

Throughout recent months, DisguisedToast not only disabled donations on his channel but also implored viewers to stop subscribing to him altogether.

Suggesting that he’d rather the subs go to a “smaller streamer instead,” perhaps he had been preparing his departure from the platform for some time.

There’s no telling where the popular personality may end up, but having amassed over 1.3 million followers throughout his three years of streaming on the platform, there’s no denying leaving Twitch would be a career-altering move.

 

With gaming icon Ninja detailing the benefits of the platform and encouraging others to make the move, perhaps DisguisedToast will be the next popular personality to leave Twitch behind.

Soleil “FaZe Ewok” Wheeler and Cory ‘KingGothalion‘ Michael are two additional streaming juggernauts that recently shifted over to Mixer, highlighting that power plays from the Microsoft-owned streaming platform are far from over.

YouTuber and streamer Karl Jacobs got emotional after Dream helped him reach an insane 5000 Twitch subs in just 8 mins, getting him to leave the room while they encouraged as many people to sub as possible.

One of the biggest communities to come out of 2020 has been the Dream SMP crew. The SMP is a survival multiplayer Minecraft server created by hugely popular creator and speedrunner Dream, with a heavy focus on complex roleplay.

Over time the server has managed to rack up a whole host of popular streamers such as the likes of TommyInnit & Quackity, and Karl Jacobs has now become a part of this community along with participating in many of MrBeast’s videos.

The Dream SMP Minecraft server is full of many hugely popular streamers and YouTubers.

Many of these creators get likes and views like no other community, and it’s all thanks to their dedicated fanbase. This was one of those occasions where viewers came out in full force to give one of their favorite creators a nice surprise.

Karl had been streaming with Dream, Sapnap, and a few other members of the group when they decided to tell him to leave the room for around five minutes. He looked rather nervous, but followed instructions and left.

Once the door had shut, they started telling chat to sub to Karl in their masses. “Alright guys, listen. I want him to come back to the most subs, I don’t even know how many. Just literally, if you are ever planning to sub to Karl, sub right now.”

Naturally, the chat started to flood with subs at an insane rate, often totally uninterrupted by any other messages. Dream theorized that it could be insane if the streamer returned and found his original 16,000 subs had gone up to 20,000, but admitted it would be a big task.

When Karl returned he was floored by how many subs continued to pour in, and when he saw that he’d gone over 21,000 subs he couldn’t believe it. It took only about 8 minutes for his fans to pour their support in.

 

He got a little emotional over just how much support he received, and said “I promise I’m gonna do literally everything to make all those subs earned, and send messages of thanks to fans on his alt Twitter, saying “you guys mean so much to me.”

The feat was certainly an amazing one, with Karl, and even his own viewers, bewildered by the amount of subs they were able to drum up in such a short space of time.
