    Shroud & Ninja (2 of the former biggest streamers on Twitch) were paid around $20-30 million each to stream exclusively on Mixer, less than a year ago. Must feel pretty damn comfy now, if they're free from their obligations already.

    Hah, dealing with the likes of Microsoft is like dealing with the devil. Microsoft probably owns them and their families until the end of time.

    Did anyone care about this beyond the two guys hired to be on their platform? From what I understand streamers tend to have a symbiotic relationship with other streamers and their followers. Not something that works well if you have two big guys and then nothing.

    When MS bought Obsidian, I was afraid I'd have to watch all of their streams on Mixer. But they kept on broadcasting everything on Twitch/YouTube too, so it was pointless.

    There was a statistics article like a month ago that Im too lazy to find right now about growth of streaming platforms during the corona lockdown.
    Every platform pretty much doubled in viewerships while Mixer grew 0.2%.

    No wonder they killed it.

    Isn't mixer an icon in lower right corner of your screen that allows you to change sound volume

    In the age of google, the "what the hell is X" "who the hell is Y" schtick is kinda lame.

    watch games before buy (tlou2)

    watch players doing challenge runs (mostly dark souls)

    watch people visiting exotic places (south korea)

    watch thots begging for money

    watch demented people doing shit for attention

    alternative to background tv

    edit: don't ever subscribe

    Replacement of background tv for normal people i think.
    I dont get the people that use chat and try to interact and shit, makes no sense to me. i guess they have no friends or something.
