Organizations in esports are constantly seeking online personalities to endorse their brand or products. On his Twitch stream, Mizkif revealed the eyewatering money he turned down to join an organization for two years.

Mizkif has now started his own organization, OTK, but before this, has revealed he was offered over six figures to join an established organization. Nearly every content creator and streamer is supported by sponsors alongside their core community.

Big names like Felix ‘xQc’ Lengyel have joined organizations such as Luminosity in the past year, while NICKMERCS represents FaZe Clan.

However, it’s not very often that the details of these sponsorship agreements are shared with the viewers. But, there are certain streamers that choose to be extremely transparent with their audience regarding sponsors, as Mizkif did during his November 5 stream.

Mizkif is one of the most recognizable faces on the Twitch platform.

Mizkif turned down a staggering offer from organization

Mizkif revealed he had turned down an offer of  $600,000 to join an undisclosed organization. This staggering amount of money was offered in return for a two-year contract.

The Twitch star opted to turn down the opportunity and instead decided to form “One True King.” OTK is an organization made up of Twitch streamers aiming to build up a community of like-minded creators. With the likes of Asmongold, Esfand and Mizkif as representatives, the org already has a significant fanbase and reach.

It’s clear Mizkif is not looking for an organization to earn more money: “The reason why I turned it down was because I’d rather not get paid 600 thousand dollars at all… I’d rather take a risk with my friends that I know are good streamers and we build something together that could change the Twitch scene.”

Ultimately, you have to respect Mizkif for putting his community on his channel first. It’s obvious the OTK organization is a passion project for him and his goal is to build something great on Twitch. It will certainly be exciting to keep track of OTK and see what the organization goes onto achieve.

KSI starts hilarious “beef” with Minecraft star TommyInnit

YouTube star-turned-boxer KSI has struck up yet another humorous “feud” with the uber-popular Minecraft influencer TommyInnit — leading to a completely hilarious and unexpected response from the gamer.

When it comes to fandom feuds, most bystanders know better than to get involved… but when content creators themselves declare war against each other, it’s almost impossible for viewers to not take an interest.

This time around, British rapper and influencer KSI has taken some shots at TommyInnit — all for the jokes, of course. While the two have “duked it out” on social media before (all for the lulz), this time, a slew of other high-profile names are getting involved in a chuckle-worthy social media showdown.

On February 24, KSI stirred the pot with a tweet that caught the attention of Minecraft fans all over the app: “Sidemen fanbase > Minecraft fanbase.”

A short while later, the commotion caught the attention of none other than MrBeast, who replied: “Anyone else waiting with popcorn for TommyInnit to reply?”

It wasn’t long before the British Minecraft star chimed in on the situation with a series of responses that left the internet in stitches.

“Mr Beast,” he began “I don’t do drama Mr Beast. I just tell people who are wrong why they’re wrong, and why they’re f***ing stupid. KSI is almost always wrong. He’s never been right. He just sits there dissing people in his ivory tower, meanwhile I’m sat here on Reddit studying algorithm. F*** him.”

However, it was Tommy’s next response that took the joke even further, with the YouTuber poking fun at his own viewers: “Tommy fanbase is a bunch of 12 year old girls who fangirl over him. Same for Carl and Dream, and Sidemen fanbase who can handle jokes.”

The Minecrafter then jokingly asked his fans to ratio KSI’s Tweet — a request that fellow Minecraft personality Quackity graciously agreed to, writing: “I just think it’s funny when old people get less likes. Signal boosted.”

While this is far from the first time KSI has effectively “stirred the pot” with the Minecraft fandom, their “feud” is no more than playful banter and humorous jokes — which are currently giving their respective fanbases a hilarious interaction that has some calling for a diss track.
