Former Twitch star Tyler ‘Ninja’ announced a bombshell move to Mixer, sparking some jabs from both Michael ‘shroud’ Grzesiek and Dr Disrespect already. 

Ninja’s announcement was met with a positive reception in most circles as he took a giant risk in leaving the empire he created on and starting fresh on a rival platform. 

Shroud and Doc are two of Twitch’s biggest personalities and they wasted no time in getting some playful jabs in about the move.

When asked about Ninja’s decision, Doc quickly downplayed it and went on what could be described as a mini rant.

“I don’t care about Ninja’s move to Mixer,” he yelled. “I don’t care! Jesus.”

He also made a quick comment about leaving his Champion’s Club behind and moving to Mixer as well, but fans shouldn’t have to worry about that. It seemed like an obvious joke. 

Shroud didn’t go as far as saying he doesn’t care about the move, but his actions may prove that he does, just in a different way that would benefit him.

“Hey man, Ninja’s gone,” he said while attempting to roll some ads on his stream. “It’s all me, baby. Gotta take advantage.”

So we have Doc not caring a bit about the switch, while shroud is taking every little opportunity he has to fill the void Ninja left.

Blevins did have over 14 million followers on Twitch at the time of his departure, so either they will be following him to Mixer or there will be a lot of displaced fans looking for a new home.

Shroud and the Two-Time would be good choices to consider, even if neither of them play a whole lot of Fortnite. Both have criticized the game in the past so it’s possible the fanbases don’t overlap.
