Jeremy “DisguisedToast” Wang has announced that he will now be streaming exclusively from Facebook.
“Big news, I’m moving. Excited to reach more people around the world, continue to give back and lose bets to chat,” the Hearthstone player tweeted.
DisguisedToast went on to joke that he was supposed to have a “really cool” video to go along with the announcement, sort of like Tyler “Ninja” Blevin’s short comedic video about his switch to Mixer. Instead, he just filmed a quick video in his hotel room.
He explained in the video that he had a check for $20,000. But instead of using it on a fun video, DiguisedToast and his crew decided to drive down to the Children’s Hospital Los Angeles and donated the money to them.
“Honestly, you don’t really care how it’s announced. You guys just care where I’m moving to,” he said.
Fellow Teamfight Tactics streamer William “scarra” Li congratulated DisguisedToast on the move, to which DisguisedToast replied with a “congrats” on scarra becoming Twitch’s number one TFT streamer with DisguisedToast now out of the way.
Earlier today, DisguisedToast had his first Facebook Gaming stream, with all of the proceeds going to St. Jude’s Children Hospital. The six and a half hour stream had over 2.5 million views raised a little over $3,000.
Two days ago, the popular streamer had hinted on Twitter that he may be leaving Twitch for either Mixer, Youtube, or Facebook. Mixer is where many other big name personalities have recently moved to, including Ninja, Michael “shroud” Grzesiek, and Ewok. Jack “CouRage” Dunlop left Twitch for YouTube.
Facebook Gaming was definitely the most surprising pick of the three, but the new broadcasting platform is nothing to scoff at. According to the official website, more than 700 million people play or watch games on Facebook. Facebook also has “gaming groups” people can engage in.
