More big name streamers are leaving Twitch.
FaZe Clan’s Ewok has announced on Twitter that she’s moving to Microsoft’s streaming platform, Mixer.
Known for her insane Fortnite skills, Ewok has found success as a streamer and gamer despite being deaf. In fact, it hasn’t seemed to slow this 14-year-old down at all. Her talent has caught the attention of famous streamers in the past, including Dr Lupo and Tyler “Ninja” Blevins.
Ewok was signed with FaZe Clan during the Fortnite World Cup, becoming the first ever woman to join the popular, and sometimes controversial, esports organization. She had around 285,000 followers on Twitch when she announced the switch to Mixer on November 14.
She recently informed her fans that they should “come and get their subs,” since they will be free for the next month.
Ewok follows shroud and Ninja to Mixer
In August, Ninja shocked the Fortnite community when he announced he’d be leaving Twitch, where he was the biggest name on the platform, and moving to the newer and less established Mixer platform. Despite some criticism, Ninja allegedly made the move due to some contract disagreements and personal issues with Twitch’s sometimes toxic community.
Ninja’s biggest competition for the number one spot on Twitch, Michael “shroud” Grzesiek, called Ninja’s move to Mixer “one of the best decisions he’s made his whole career.”
shroud went on to say that Ninja was changing the way people streamed, and it appeared he meant every word. Two months later, the former Counter-Strike: Global Offensive pro was on Mixer himself. While some Twitch stars didn’t agree with the move, shroud was confident that even more streamers would be making the move soon after him.
“The industry is changing,” shroud said.
Ewok is the next big name on Twitch to switch to Mixer. Her first stream will be later today. One day after the announcement, Ewok already has over 7,000 new followers.
