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.

Shroud on the content Mixer viewers want to see

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.

Mixer: shroud
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.

In-Vent-Ational recap

Four separate lobbies filled to the brim with popular personalities battled it out during the event. Eventually, the best of the best moved on to the final showdown. This was where the most elite Among Us players showed their skills to the world. From extraordinary memory to map knowledge and of course, the ability to deceive everyone else, it all came in handy.

The likes of Ludwig, Classify, and Yassuo all made it through to the final round of action in the FaZe event. However, only one player could come away with the crown.

After a few maps of intense murder-sprees and subsequent investigations, it was up and coming Twitch streamer ‘Yetiapocalypse’ that closed out the victory. They soared to the top of the pack with a six-point lead over second place, well ahead of some of the bigger internet celebs in the lobby. The final placements can be found below.
