Despite the closure of Mixer Ninja, he refused to move to Facebook Gaming
This afternoon Microsoft announced the closure of Mixer, its streaming platform, and revealed an alliance with Facebook Gaming that will allow its partners to move out of service. The above will not apply to all streamers, since there are some who refused to make the jump. The most important of them is Tyler “Ninja” Blevins, one of the biggest streamers in the industry.
As reported by different sources, Facebook tried to negotiate contracts with streamers like Ninja and Shroud, who refused to be part of the portfolio of exclusive Facebook Gaming streamers. With this, both players received their full payment from Mixer and now operate as free agents so they can join any streaming service.
According to Rod Breslau, Facebook Gaming was very interested in keeping both streamers. So much so that he offered them almost double what he earned in Mixer to join Facebook Gaming. This situation forced Mixer to pay his contracts.
For this, Ninja received approximately $ 30 MDD, while Shroud obtained $ 10 MDD.
