After Ninja, Shroud is leaving Twitch for his rival streaming platform, Microsoft Mixer.
Michael ‘Shroud’ Grzesiek recently disclosed that he is leaving twitch and moving to mixer on his tweet in this Video
Shroud is another big Twitch streamer to leave after Tyler ‘Ninja’ Belvins who left twitch in recent month.
Which made a huge controversy between Twitch and Ninja in which he claimed that after leaving Twitch, they are hosting “Adult Content” with his old twitch account.
Shroud has not declared when he is going to move to the mixer but it is estimated that this transition will happen in a couple of days.
Shroud’s team has declined to tell any details regarding his deal with Mixer.
They also declined the fact that Shroud is anywhere got influenced by Ninja moving to Mixer.
Shroud gave a statement to the media about him leaving twitch:
“The move to Mixer allows me to focus on what I love “Gaming”. “It allows me to focus on live streaming for my fans and directly engage with more interactivity and variety”.
In his early days of streaming Shroud used to stream on Twitch and he soon got picked into professional Counter-Strike: Global Offensive team Cloud 9.
In April 2018 Shroud declared his retirement from CS: GO and return to full time streaming.
On return, he played other games like PUBG and Apex Legends rather than playing CS: GO
Which was equally welcomed by his audience.
The audience was amazed by his In Human reactions in other games also.
Twitch vs Mixer active users
In August Mixer had more than 30 Million monthly active users whereas Twitch has more than 15 million daily active visitors.
Shroud and Ninja’s move to Mixer is proof that Microsoft is taking this streaming game seriously.
Now it is time to see who is the next big streamer to switch sides.
