POKIMANE EXPLAINS WHY XQC IS “MORE VALUABLE” TO TWITCH THAN PEAK NINJA

WHAT HAPPENED?

Pokimane weighed in on the great debate between who is the greatest streamer of all time (in their prime) between xQc and Ninja.

“I think xQc is more valuable now than Ninja was, even in his peak. Is that a hot take? I don’t know,” she said.

According to Pokimane, Ninja’s success stems from the fact that he was primarily playing Fortnite when it was incredibly popular, whereas Lengyel doesn’t have a connection to any one game or genre.

xQc will get viewers doing anything. Ninja was the top Fortnite streamer when Fortnite was popping. Two very different things. You can’t just look at view count and think that’s everything.

“That’s not to downplay how valuable Ninja was, but it can’t make or break a whole platform,” she concluded.
