MontanaBlack takes a shot at Twitch

MontanaBlack is one of the biggest streamers in the world, and even surpassed the competition to become the most subscribed channel on Twitch in September, according to third-party tracking sites.

However, while serving a seven day suspension on the streaming platform, the German reacted to shroud’s announcement of leaving for Mixer, and hit out at Twitch by teasing that he could also make the move to their competitor.

“Bald könnten die ersten Deutschen folgen,” he tweeted on October 24, which roughly translates to “Soon the first Germans could follow.”

The streaming star was potentially issuing a warning to Twitch after his channel had been locked out for several days, following a week long suspension on October 18.

On Twitter, the German explained he would not be able to stream after he used vulgar language while discussing FIFA on Discord with some friends. “I said swear words that don't belong on Twitch,” he said.

MontanaBlack is not only the biggest streamer in Germany, but in 2019, he became one of the top 10 channels on Twitch. In September, he announced that he had surpassed former CSGO pro ‘shroud’ in subscriptions on the streaming platform.

While Twitch does not make subscription numbers public, the German streaming personality became a force to be reckoned with, so following shroud to Mixer would be an interesting move, and expand Mixer’s European demographic.
