OpTic Gaming member and popular streamer Jack ‘CouRage’ Dunlop has explained how Twitch sensation Tyler ‘Ninja’ Blevins changed his life.
CouRage was making an appearance on ‘The Eavesdrop Podcast’ hosted by Hector ‘H3CZ’ Rodriguez went the pair began to discuss Dunlop’s ascension to stardom on Twitch.
While CouRage accepts that a few different things had to work in his favor to allow him to reach the position he is in now, he stated that Ninja hosting his streams when he went offline was a major factor in his success.
“Tyler literally changed my life,” commented Dunlop. “Ninja changed my life through hosting my channel. As simple as that.”
“I’m not going to shy away from that, that was huge. If I had to give credit to the moments where I’ve seen jumps, why I’ve skyrocketed - Ninja is obviously one of the huge parts.”
CouRage also credited his friendship with hilarious 10 year old Connor, a kid who Dunlop met while playing random duo matches on Fortnite, who regularly appears in his streams and on his YouTube channel.
CouRage left his position at MLG as a Call of Duty caster back in March to pursue full time streaming, and has seen huge success since making the change.
CouRage will, however, be returning to the caster’s booth soon, as he is set to commentate the final week of Fortnite’s Fall Skirmish alongside DrLupo.
