Of the Hype um Fortnite made in 2018 Tyler “Ninja” Blevins within a few months to the most successful streamer on Twitch. In the meantime, the 30-year-old has lost many of his viewers at the time. Ninja doesn’t have a problem with that – among other things, because he’s no longer “that guy”.
Ninja has run out of time for the great Twitch success
“Nobody stays at the top forever, especially when it comes to live streaming. There will always be someone who is new and more popular. But I have no intention of being that guy anymore. I know that I no longer have 100,000 viewers [auf Twitch] will attract. I don’t have time for it either. I have a wife and a family. “ – said ninja in one Interview.
The Ninja brand is bigger than the stream on Twitch
“It’s always focused on what you can see – and that’s numbers. ‘Ninja doesn’t get 100,000 more viewers’ – but what they don’t see is everything we’ve created during our success and global attention . And that’s bigger than just streaming on Twitch. “
Twitch success and switch to Mixer
Ninja’s Fornite peak took place between March and July 2018. During this time they have on average over 100,000 spectators tracked his broadcasts on Twitch. In August 2019, the streamer surprised everyone with the announcement that it would switch exclusively to Microsoft’s Mixer. Between $ 20 million and $ 30 million is said to have got Tyler Blevins for this deal.
After only a year Ninja returned to Twitch return. Due to a lack of success, Microsoft had taken the Mixer streaming platform offline. Since then, Ninja has focused again on several games. In addition to occasional rounds in Fortnite, Valorant, Warzone or League of Legends are also among his titles. Halo Infinite is also currently a topic for the former Halo e-athlete.
