During an April broadcast, popular streamer Michael ‘shroud’ Grzesiek revealed the major differences between viewers on Twitch and Mixer.

Following in the footsteps of Tyler ‘Ninja’ Blevins, shroud announced in 2019 that he had signed an exclusive deal to stream exclusively with Microsoft.

After being on the platform for close to six months, the streamer opened up to his audience about how viewers have different expectations on Mixer compared to Twitch.

During his broadcast, shroud’s friend asked him how feels about viewers requesting he play specific games. “Does it bother you how many people ask you what game you are going to play? Or to play a game. Or when are you going to play this game?”

The popular streamer answered that it didn’t bother him since it was expected, but revealed it happens more often on Mixer. “It happens way more on Mixer. Mixer is way more about gaming. People on this platform definitely want gaming content more than anything else 100%,” he said.

He clarified that it was actually a good thing, but said that for some, watching it might seem odd to see their favorite streamer not gaming. “When they see someone not gaming when they are supposed to, it’s a little strange,” he continued.

Despite their expectations, the Mixer star stated that sometimes it’s good to just chill out during a broadcast and not game. “You don’t always want to play games,” he said.

He then explained how the viewer should be able to relate to be being burnt out on things. “Think how many times that viewer has been like “Man, I don’t really want to play games!” … Well we get that same way too. Way more often, because we do it all the time.”

While shroud is one of the best FPS players in the world, it certainly makes sense that even he would sometimes get tired playing the same type of game every day.

Yes, even shroud gets tired of gaming every once in a while.

According to the streamer, it appears audiences on Mixer are overall looking for gaming content. Which makes sense, seeing as Twitch has seen a major growth of successful channels in off-topic categories such as ‘Just Chatting.’

Regardless, the streamer continues to be one of the most popular personalities in the industry, impressing audiences with his gaming skills, making him must-see entertainment for many regardless of the platform he’s on.

Popular YouTuber Felix ‘PewDiePie’ Kjellberg criticized viewers who flood his wife Marzia’s Instagram account every time he makes a comment on it to support her. The Swede hit out at the “simp” meme becoming overused.

With over 108 millions subscribers to his channel in 2020, PewDiePie is not only one of the platform’s biggest creators, but undoubtedly one of the most popular entertainers in the world.

The YouTuber has also become an icon when it comes to internet humor. In November, the star called out viewers overusing the popular “simp” meme every time he supports his wife Marzia, and explained why he’s tired of reading it.

PewDiePie hits out at “simp” comments flooding Marzia’s Instagram

While the modern use of “simp” goes back as far as the 1980s, the term has exploded in popularity in 2020, becoming one of the year’s biggest memes. However, during his November 27 upload, PewDiePie explained why it’s starting to become too much on Instagram.

“Instagram is even worse. I commented on Marzia’s post, and I swear to God every single comment… She painted the kitchen and I said “you did so good” because I know she worked hard on it. And it’s just “simp, simp, simp king” every single comment. It is so unfunny. Jesus Christ, dude!” the YouTuber exclaimed.

The star then went on to mock the way memes become tired quickly due to users jumping on the bandwagon and spamming it relentlessly online in comments. “Maybe if everyone says a joke, it becomes funnier,” he said sarcastically.

Hilariously, the star had a follow-up to the situation on November 30 when one fan pointed out that they actually had made a nice comment on Marzia’s Instagram post. “Me understanding that he just wants to be a good husband,” they wrote days prior. PewDiePie then apologized to the viewer. “I’m sorry tg_man 12. I did you dirty, I did you dirty,” he laughed.

While the content creator has made several videos on the simp meme, he has been critical of how its been used in the past and mocked users for their broad use of it. Now it appears the joke is starting to overstay its welcome with how often it’s being repeated.

The 31-year-old has had an incredible year so far, making a successful move to streaming after signing a major deal with YouTube in May to broadcast live exclusively on their platform. The entertainer also surpassed over 108 million subscribers in November, making him the most followed individual on the platform.
