Two-time champion Dr Disrespect gave his brutally honest take on the future of Tyler ‘Ninja‘ Blevins’ numbers if Microsoft doesn’t persuade more Twitch streamers to join Mixer.

Microsoft made huge waves when they snagged a deal with Ninja to stream exclusively on their platform Mixer on August 1. 

But the always-colorful Dr Disrespect argued that they haven’t done enough to be a sustainable competitor to Twitch in the long term, and predicts the numbers will drop unless they take certain steps.

A “power move”

While streaming on August 5, Doc took a break from playing to talk to his audience and address Ninja’s deal with Mixer. The Two-Time had doubts that the current numbers on the platform could maintain over time – but offered a solution.

 “I think you need at least five of the top ten on Twitch. A power move if you will, to really bring in the numbers and the hype to that platform,” he stated.

While Mixer’s numbers have skyrocketed since the ex-Twitch star joined the platform, Doc predicted that those numbers would drop. “And I just have a feeling, and I’m just kind of going off gut right now, that unless they pick up somebody, a few other big names, I got a feeling, I think his numbers are going to go down.”

He was also quick to point out that it wasn’t anything personal against Ninja. “I hate to say it. I don’t want to be the guy to say it. And it has nothing to do with him. I think it’s just exposure on the platform, where it’s at right now.”

Ninja is killing it on Mixer

Ninja’s first week with Microsoft’s service was extremely successful, as the streamer celebrated hitting half a million subs on August 2. His sub count is moving so quickly that he’s now at 685,000 subscribers and is also approaching 4 million views overall.

“We have hit over 500k subscribers on mixer. What better way to celebrate than with some cake?!” he tweeted.

Could we see Dr Disrespect on Mixer in the future? Only time will tell.

Pokimane releases her own Fedmyster document to “put drama to rest”

Imane ‘Pokimane’ Anys has conclusively responded to recent leaks about OfflineTV drama from Federico ‘Fedmyster’ Gaytan. In her own extensive document, the popular streamer shares her side of the story with texts and other sources.

The drama surrounding Fedmyster and the OTV house bubbled, then simmered, then boiled back up with a thorough document which was leaked, then shared by Fedmyster to give his side of the story. 

Fed, who has been accused of numerous improprieties, used texts and messages to provide evidence of his perspective and show some humanity. In the end, he tried to clarify for the public that the matter was resolved: “We both made mistakes and have owned up to them privately. I hope everyone reading will try to move on from all this as we certainly have already.”

But Poki immediately appeared perturbed by the leaked document, which included flirtatious messages between them as a means of demonstrating that Fed had been led on. In a brief Twitch stream, she noted Fed’s “manipulative” behavior and discomfort with private messages being leaked publicly.

Now, she’s gone a step further and shared her own doc to share her side of things and hopefully shut down any more need for gossip.

Pokimane and Fedmyster’s relationship is a long, complicated one.

In an 11-page document, including pictures of messages between herself and Fedmyster, as well as with other people, Poki clarifies context and attempts to remove biases that she felt Fed had pushed.

While understandably uncomfortable with private conversations being leaked, the streamer indicates that she is compelled to share her side because of Fed’s document: “Looking back, I would’ve done a lot of things differently, and know for a fact that neither of us handled the situation perfectly. However, our private convos heavily lacked context, and I’m not okay with how they’re being misrepresented.”

In one such example of giving context, she explains how one of the more egregiously received examples of flirting was actually misconstrued to suggest that she wanted to be alone with Fed in a hotel room.

A screenshot of Poki’s doc shows how Fed’s leaks lacked context.

Unwilling to be abdicated of responsibility for the complicated relationship, Poki asserts that she regrets many of her messages and actions.

Similarly, she contends that Fed’s “feelings are valid and a good reminder to me that what one person thinks may be going on in a friendship, don’t always match up with the other person’s expectations.”

The document tackles every issue brought up in Fed’s document, including the two’s relationship as well as drama with Yvonne, OTV, and Jodi.

But, ultimately, these are private matters and the additional context simply proves that Fed’s account may have misled in that it failed to account for other perspectives.

Poki’s hopes are that this new context will finally help “put drama to rest.”
