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.

World of Warcraft Shadowlands finally arrived on November 23 and while one Twitch streamer drove home far too fast to load it up with friends, the Police officer who stopped them completely understood. 

As many members of the community will know, the game’s latest expansion will bring together loads of new and returning players for an all-new story. There’s Covenants to mess around with, new quests to try out, and many will have been rushing home to play it after work.

Though, speeding is against the highway code and by driving too fast you are putting others in danger – which meant one streamer was unfortunately told to pull over by the Cops.

Usually, this would lead to a speeding ticket, but after explaining their reason for going too fast – to get home and throw Shadowlands on – the officer came in clutch and decided to turn a blind eye in what was quite a remarkable story.

Shadowlands is finally here and some are getting a bit to exicted.

Shadowlands saves Twitch streamer a speeding ticket

On release day, streamer bbnogames was already playing Shadowlands when his friend called, who presumably also streams with him.

They said: “Bro, hahaha. The Cop was like ‘yo, you know how fast you were going?’ I’m like dude I’m so sorry, this game is dropping soon, all my friends are waiting for me.

“He’s like ‘Shadowlands?’ And I’m like yeah, and he’s like OK go!”

 

After that, he said he was just five minutes away and eventually joined the team playing online. After that remarkable exchange with the Police officer, things went without a hitch, when really he could have been left with a hefty ticket to pay for his troubles.

Instead, they were able to link up together later in the night and jump into World of Warcraft’s latest expansion. Maybe next time, he won’t be so lucky.
