Speaking to his viewers on August 5, Dr Disrespect revealed what would make him go to Mixer and leave Twitch behind. 

“Let’s say a move to the Doc to Mixer… let’s just like theoretically say it right… the number would have to be crazy,” the popular streamer said.

Dr Disrespect is one of Twitch’s biggest names, so it would make sense he would ask for a large sum if he changed platforms.

“Like, I’m talking… I don’t know what Ninja got, but it’s got to be at Ninja’s level or higher. I mean it’s just a bigger, stronger brand,” he added before bursting out laughing.

Ever since Ninja announced he would be streaming exclusively on Mixer, other streamers have weighed in on what it would take for them to jump ship. In a since-deleted clip, former Overwatch League pro Dafran said that he would make the move for $30,000 a month.

“I don’t give a fuck what platform I stream on, dude,” the DPS star said. “Whatever place makes me more money I’ll stream on.”

Ninja may not be the only big name headed to Mixer either if H3H3’s Ethan Klein is to be believed.

“They are not going to last, they aren’t going to make it. Because they are short sighted, and don’t know how to keep their talent. Because they are so cheap. Which is shocking, because they are owned by the richest man that has ever walked this earth. They are so rich, he wipes his ass with $100 bills,” the podcast host regarding Twitch failing to pay their content creator’s enough.

“I have spoken to one of the top five streamers on Twitch, and I’m not going to say his name because it was a private conversation. But he told me that they pinch his ass hard too. And he’s so over it, and doesn’t understand it. Now he’s thinking about going to Mixer too, if he can close a deal with them,” Klein revealed.

Ninja announced his controversial Mixer move on August 1.

Whether Klein is talking about Dr Disrespect or not remains up in the air. One thing is for sure though, and that’s the stream wars are only just getting started.

We may not know who the next Twitch star to jump ship to Mixer will be, but it will be interesting to watch and see what happens.


xQc begs his Twitch fans to stop sending so many “sad” donations

In a hilarious but sincere rant, xQc begged his fans to stop sending so many “sad” donation messages, particularly when they happen one after the other and even more so when they are fake.

Twitch donations are the best way for fans to pass on a message to their favorite streamers. Not all streamers have text-to-speech for donations turned on, and even they do, they don’t always hear them. However, it’s still more effective than spamming in the chat.

Felix ‘xQc’ Lengyel gets bombarded with donation messages every stream. They’re often funny, but they can sometimes be sad and depressing. xQc has finally had enough of that, particularly when it’s excessive and insincere.

The Twitch star has slotted (deliberately or otherwise) into his 'bad guy' role perfectly.

The Twitch star had a lot to say about “sad” donations during a recent stream.

“Let me talk about this once and for all,” he said. “I realize this kind of like a picky topic… but I’ll just tell you straight up, okay? The emotional [donation messages] are fine when they’re true.”

“The problem is when there’s too many of them that are stacked, it feels like… all the energy goes down,” he added.

“Sometimes it’s f**king overwhelming,” he said. “I feel bad for the people that are having tough times, legitimately, and they’re struggling. They’re trying to get under the wave of BigPog, and you just pull everybody down.”

“When there’s a couple, it’s fine,” he added. “But when it’s too stacked, I feel bad for the people that are just trying to escape. They’re getting f**ked on over and over again. It’s selfish as sh*t.”

“Those that bait it are even worse,” he said. “It’s fake, and it’s trolling, and it’s f**king stupid as sh*t. I’m tired of it, dude. That sh*t is garbage. I could have said it in a better way, but there’s no way around it. Holy sh*t, man.”

“I don’t want to shut down people from saying stuff that they’re going through,” he added. “Just be mindful not to stack it all. I don’t want this stream to become a ship of despair.”

xQc has never been one to bite his tongue, and he didn’t hold back here. However, somebody posted the clip on Reddit, and it seems like others sympathize with him.

“I feel bad for the people, but it just completely ruins the mood every time,” wrote one user, which ended up being the top comment. “I love watching XQC, but [text-to-speech] is unbearable,” wrote another.

In the end, though, there’s two sides to every story. It will be interesting to see what donors who leave these messages haveto say. Maybe they’ll understand.
