Shroud explains why Ninja teamups at Mixer might be rare

Michael 'shroud' Grzesiek made the switch to Mixer from Twitch, joining Tyler 'Ninja' Blevins, and fans were wondering if they would ever see the two game together.

Ninja is primarily known as a Fortnite streamer while shroud does play his share of shooters, but doesn't really spend a whole lot of time with Epic Games' battle royale title.

Now that the two streamers have become the biggest names on Mixer, fans quickly wondered if they would ever play together, but shroud explained that would require a couple of things to happen at once.

"The thing is, Ninja plays Fortnite a lot and I don't play Fortnite a lot," shroud explained at the 7:48 mark. "There would have to be this one rare moment when I'm playing Fortnite and he's playing Fortnite for that to happen but I don't play a lot. I'm sure we'll play with each other eventually. It might not be Fortnite, though because like I said, I don't play a lot."

Ninja and shroud have both played a bit of Modern Warfare so perhaps the two could link up through there in the near future.

Looking forward to the future, the two will more than likely both play Halo: Infinite once that releases. They also might play some of the Master Chief Collection together once it eventually releases on PC.

The two streamers didn't really play together a whole lot while they were on Twitch together and it doesn't sound like it'll be changing with both of them on Mixer.

Also joining shroud and Ninja on Mixer is Gothalion, who announced his move on October 27, as Microsoft looks to bolster the ranks on their platform.

There's little doubt that Microsoft will be looking for more streamers to make the jump, and it's likely they are already in talks with more of them.

Dr Disrespect says he was the first streamer to be approached by Microsoft, but the Two-Time did not make the switch, but some other major name likely will.

Ninja, shroud, and Gothalion's first months of Mixer were marked with free subscriptions to all viewers, with Ninja receiving two free months.

At the time of their respective switches, Ninja was at 14 million followers on Twitch, easily the most on the platform while shroud was sitting right above 7 million.

It'll still be a while before anyone can catch Ninja as Tfue could double his current count and still be behind Ninja.
