During his October 28 stream, Twitch star Dr Disrespect went off an explosive rant and explained why Tyler ‘Ninja’ Blevins and Michael ‘shroud’ Grzesiek’s move to Mixer were not actually good for the Microsoft platform after all.

Ninja sent shockwaves through the streaming industry when he signed an exclusive deal to join Twitch’s competitor Mixer on August 1. Three months later, former CSGO pro shroud announced he would be leaving as well.

While many considered these to be “big moves” made by Mixer, the Two-Time champion Dr Disrespect slammed the idea, and also explained why he would never join the streaming platform.

Twitter: @PUBGDr Disrespect slammed Mixer trying to “buy” a community by signing shroud and Ninja to their platform.

Dr Disrespect would never join Mixer

Doc was reading his chat when someone in his audience told him “Easy, just to move to Mixer!” which set the Twitch star off on a rant about the Microsoft streaming platform. “I would never move to Mixer, trust me. It’s stupid!” he laughed.

The Two-Time then got into the numbers, and explained why he wouldn’t be making the move. “Right now they probably have a total of 40 to 50 thousand concurrent viewers across the entire platform. Currently on Twitch they have 1.5 million concurrent viewers,” he exclaimed.

The Twitch star then exploded into a rant after being “sick and tired” of hearing people talking about Ninja and shroud’s moves to sign exclusive deals. 

“So you tell me. You step into my face and say “YEAH! They are making big moves!” No, they are not! I have double the amount of viewers that Ninja has, and I’m still in my intro!” he explained poignantly. 

Doc then argued that the two streamers joining Mixer actually isn’t doing anything for the growth of the platform. “Reality check, those moves are not doing anything for the platform. You can’t pay for a community, you can’t buy viewership – it’s right here! The Twitch community is built!”

This isn’t the first time Doc has shared a harsh opinion on the Microsoft platform. During his October 24 stream, he hit out at Mixer and said, “In comparison, Twitch, the streaming platform, has extremely high engagement and sessions times that they monetize by millions of minutes of content watched!”

He also shared doubts about Ninja’s longevity on the platform in August, and predicted that the Fortnite star’s numbers would go down over time, given the state of where the Mixer was at in terms of exposure and active users. Only time will tell if Microsoft-owned platform will grow as a result of the talent they are signing.

NickEh30’s latest Fortnite tournament was quite a spectacle, but it was tainted by an alleged stream sniper, who was reported and subsequently banned despite maintaining his innocence.

Nick ‘NickEh30’ Amyoony has been hosting a series of Fortnite tournaments in recent months. The latest one was the NickEh30 Cup. It gave players a chance to compete against some of the game’s biggest names in the scene for a chance to win $10,000.  

It was all positive for the most part. A lesser-known professional Fortnite player named  Crumble managed to impress and take home the prize. However, the tournament was marred with some unfortunate stream sniping drama.

NickEh30 Fortnite stream sniping ban

In the final match, several other players landed on NickEh30, including a Twitch streamer named ArchieFN. He eliminated NickEh30 and danced on his body for the better part of 30 seconds.

NickEh30 was less than impressed and looked disappointed and deflated on stream. It was a stark contrast to his usual upbeat and positive vibe. He was convinced ArchieFN was stream sniping and hopped into the replay mode to report him and a few others.

Fortunately, Epic Games responded almost instantly and banned ArchieFN for 24 hours as soon as he returned to the lobby. You can watch a full recap of the incident below and form your own opinion.

However, ArchieFN is maintaining his innocence. He claimed he wasn’t stream sniping at all. Instead, he said he wanted to “contest someone who wasn’t a tier-one pro” and decided to land on NickEh30 after seeing him land in the same spot during a previous game.

Still, he apologized for what he did and acknowledged that some might find it “scummy.” Sadly, that didn’t stop him from copping a bit of abuse, some of which was needless and extreme.

“Why am I waking up to 600 DMs telling me to kill myself?” he said. “I’m 20, and it doesn’t bother me at all, but the majority of the community is quite younger … you really need to think about what you’re saying to people on the internet.”

In the end, ArchieFN’s Fortnite ban won’t last more than a day. It isn’t too long to wait if he’s innocent, but it’s enough for a wake-up call if he’s guilty.

Either way, The NickEh30 was a success despite the stream sniping drama, and a rightful victor was still crowned.
