Streaming star Jaryd ’Summit1g’ Lazar once again has fans speculating that he could be set to switch from Twitch to Mixer after giving a pretty cryptic answer to a question on the matter. 

Ever since Tyler ‘Ninja’ Blevins and Michael ‘Shroud’ Grzesiek called time on their relationships with Twitch and hopped over to Mixer, streaming fans have been speculating as to who would follow. 

As someone who has been around for a long time and has built up a huge following on Twitch, Summit1g falls right into the category of possible movers – and has even hinted at major news in his future. He has had fans speculating plenty about a move, saying he was waiting on some kind of decision to be announced, and some viewers fully believe he is headed for Mixer.

Ninja was the first, and biggest, streamer to depart Twitch.

As a result of the possible switch, which many fans probably wouldn’t be too happy about, some loyal viewers have even gone as far as pleading with him to stick with Twitch – noting the growing the speculation.

“I appreciate it my friend,” Summit replied to a donation that asked him not to go to Mixer in the future. “Don’t worry mate, everything will be ok dudes,” the former Counter-Strike player continued in a pretty solemn tone that only added further fuel to the fire for some fans. 

Obviously, even though he has been linked with making the switch for quite some time, if Summit indeed does leave Twitch, he wouldn’t just announce it in a reply to a donation. Both Ninja and Shroud got pretty big announcement videos to celebrate switches.

However, Summit could also just be playing his hand in regard to renegotiating his contract with Twitch. A lot of streamers have re-upped their deals with the streaming platform since the switches to other platforms began happening – so it could all just be a ploy from the leader of the 1G Squad.

Streamers who are part of Dream’s SMP Minecraft server such as TommyInnit, Tubbo, Quackity, and more, are topping the list of the fastest growing streamers on Twitch following an SMP finale stream.

The Minecraft community has experienced a giant surge in popularity throughout the past year, with the 2011 game providing a central focus for a huge number of streamers who have seen a boost in their follower count recently.

Largely this resurgence in popularity is due to the huge multi-streamer server named the ‘Dream SMP.’ Dream is a popular Minecraft speedrunner and YouTuber, and while the SMP (survival multiplayer server) started off as a simple fun server, it quickly progressed into remarkably detailed roleplay and lore, which has captivated fans across the world.

The Dream SMP is full of many hugely popular streamers and YouTubers.

The story of the Dream SMP features wars, betrayal, revolutions, and more, and these plotlines are acted out and developed by a huge host of streamers who have all appeared in the server or in content relating to the server.

Dream SMP dominate fastest-growing channels

Following a ‘finale’ stream that saw an end to part of the developing story, many of these Dream SMP streamers are shooting to the top of the ranks on Twitch, dominating the fastest-growing streamers list.

According to SullyGnome, 16-year-old Tommy is the fastest-growing account on the platform, with his average viewers at a whopping 300,000. This follows his finale stream in which he peaked at around 650,000 viewers.

Close behind Tommy, and all within the top ten fastest-growing streamers for the seven days leading up to January 24, are fellow SMP streamers awesamdude, Tubbo, RanbooLive, Quackity, Foolish Gamers, Sapnap, and Philza.

To see this list dominated by one group of people is certainly a testament to the growing popularity of the Dream SMP group. With so many creators on board, the amount of content is practically endless, and clearly a huge amount of work has gone into developing the lore.

Now this finale has passed, fans will be keen to know what’s going to happen next in the world of the Dream SMP, and there’s no doubt that this interest will provide an even bigger boost in numbers for these streamers.
