Streaming superstar Michael ‘shroud’ Grzesiek has hinted at the fact that Jack ‘CouRage’ Dunlop’s move to YouTube is only the start of an industry shake-up.

Prior to Tyler ‘Ninja’ Blevins swapping Twitch for Mixer, popular streamers never really deviated from the juggernaut of a livestreaming platform. However, since that move shook up the streaming world, some broadcasters have become more open to switching things up.

Shroud followed Ninja to Mixer at the end of October, while more recently, on November 4, Counter-Strike: Global Offensive professional had been watching CouRage’s annoucement video when it came to a close and he started to comment on his fellow streamer’s move.

“The industry is changing,” he said in an almost singing tone. “Nice, congrats to the man.” One viewer picked up on his comments and asked him if things were only just getting started. “Is stuff just getting started? Oh yeah,” shroud replied. “Oh yeah, just getting started.”

While shroud didn’t offer up anything more than that, it does tie in with reports that suggest that a number of streamers who also have the same representation – Loaded – as Shroud, Ninja, and CouRage are eyeing up their options.

According to esports consultant Rod ‘Slasher’ Breslau, all of Loaded’s clients have been in talks with other platforms like Mixer or have already renewed their deals with Twitch. 

Whether someone like Jaryd ‘Summit1g’ Lazar or Saqib ‘LIRIK‘ Zahid, who both have a long-standing history with Twitch decide to leave too, remains to be seen.

With that being said, it would absolutely send further shockwaves through the streaming world – especially if somewhere like Mixer continues to eat into Twitch’s hold on the market. 


LoL streamer mortified after forgetting to mute mic in school Zoom class

League of Legends Twitch streamer ‘Scyrine’ was left humiliated after he forgot to mute his microphone while in class on a Zoom call.

Due to the global health crisis, many jobs and even schools have moved completely online, with employees and students using Zoom – an online meeting software – to communicate with each other.

Of course, because everything is done at home now, it means that some students have ample opportunities to slack off or even play video games and stream on Twitch in class.

During a November 19 broadcast, the streamer was playing League of Legends and started raging at the exact moment his teacher was talking. Unknown to the player, however, he left his mic unmuted – meaning the entire class could hear him.

The streamer forgot to mute his mic while in class.

“I’m done, I can’t play this game!” he exclaimed while standing up. “I’m done, I’m done, I’m done. I’m so f**king done, guys.”

As the streamer kept shouting, eventually the teacher stepped in and asked who was making all the noise.

“Guys, what is that?” she asked.

It was at this moment that Scyrine knew he screwed up. “I wasn’t muted,” he softly said.

“Guys at home, did someone have something go off accidentally?” she further inquired.

Sensing he had no other choice but to lie, Scyrine claimed his brother started making noise in his room.

“Josh, you got to ban your brother from the room, alright?” she requested. “Okay, so now Josh, you can answer that question.”

Unfortunately, because he was too busy playing League of Legends, the streamer had no idea what was even being discussed in class. After being given a multiple-choice question, he ended up incorrectly answering an easy query about check-cashing stores – much to the amusement of his chat.

“It’s two!” viewers spammed, shocked that he answered the multiple-choice question incorrectly.

This just goes to show that if you’re ever going to play a video game in class, you probably shouldn’t – but if you do, be sure your microphone is muted at all times.
