Fortnite: Twitch streamer Ninja fakes burnout, announces comeback – Asmongold etches “should have just gone to YouTube”

In early September 2022, Fortnite streamer Tyler “Ninja” Blevins (31) announced he was taking a break from Twitch and social media. Now he’s back with a crazy comeback, but not everyone likes it.

To the background:

  • Ninja had his big break with Fortnite in late 2017 and then went on to have an unprecedented career: he was a permanent presence on Twitch, was even invited to talk shows and is probably the first real mainstream streamer
  • Years later, he still has the Twitch channel with the most followers, but his heyday is over: Ninja is now a “normal streamer” with an average of 10,000 viewers
  • On September 1st, Ninja caused a stir with a mysterious tweet and a suddenly interrupted stream, suddenly everything seemed to be too much for him. He said, “I can’t take it anymore, mate – I’m fed up” – We asked you: Is this real or is it all just for show?
  • At the same time, Ninja’s exclusive contract with Twitch ended, he no longer has the status of “partner” – this caused speculation: is there a move to YouTube to be prepared, or is he burned out and quitting altogether?
  • In the meantime it seems as if Ninja faked the burnout in order to be able to announce a comeback of a special kind.

Ninja discovered Fortnite at just the right time and grew huge with it. Everything you need to know about Epic’s colorful shooter can be found here:

Cautious reactions to Ninja’s big comeback: Interesting, but…

This comeback is about: On September 9, just over a week after his supposed burnout, Ninja announced his comeback, and the video has already received over 700,000 views on Twitter. The highlight of the matter: Ninja now just wants to stream everywhere – apparently at the same time.

The whole thing is supposed to start tomorrow, September 10th, 2022, at 7:00 p.m. our time.

Ninja is said to be featured on these platforms: Ninja announced that they want to be “live everywhere”. He listed all common platforms: Twitch, YouTube, Facebook, Instagram, TikTok and Twitter. He didn’t even completely rule out Patreon and Onlyfans, although the latter is more of a joke.

This is how Ninja announced his comeback

This is what makes it so special: As reported by esports journalist Jake Lucky, Ninja is the first major streamer to want to live stream on every site. However, he saw the decision as a sEsports Extrasthat there were probably no major exclusive offers for Ninja (via Twitter).

Behind the action could be a recent rule change by Twitch: streamers now have more freedom to stream on other platforms, with restrictions for partners. DrDisrespect was already thinking in a similar direction:

However, Jake Lucky also said he was curious to see what the combined viewership would be like. . streamer Zack, better known as “Asmongold”, seems to share this attitude. Responding to Ninja’s announcement video, he says, “There’s nothing really exciting about that.”

Asmongold has this to say about it: The WoW streamer probably doesn’t think the whole thing is a good idea. He fears viewer interaction and overall quality could suffer from multi-streaming. A single stream with 7,000 viewers is preferable to 7 streams with 1,000 viewers each.

However, given the changed rules of Twitch, Asmongold is also curious about this development. Because if Ninja were successful with the campaign, others would surely soon do the same. He’s trying it out for everyone now.

Nevertheless, he seems to think that the step was the wrong decision: Ninja should have just gone to YouTube because he is popular there.

Asmongold thinks Ninja don’t need it

Did Asmongold have anything positive to say? Absolutely. In Asmongold’s eyes, Ninja “won the game.” He is the most successful gamer. But you can’t always be as popular as Ninja was in 2018, that’s just the way of things.

I have the impression, [Ninja] should just sit back and relax. He should relish the fact that he’s – in my opinion – the first mainstream gaming celebrity. Screw the viewers, just do what you want.

Asmongold doesn’t really seem to understand why Ninja is making this effort. He could just spend time with his wife and friends.

What do you think of Ninja’s comeback? Is it an interesting experiment, or is it more of a desperate attempt to cling to past glory? Would you be interested in such multi-platform streams and if so, where would you most like to see them? Please leave us a comment with your opinion.

When Ninja isn’t streaming on half a dozen platforms at the same time, he’s trying to guide others on their path to streaming success. But his streaming course has received a lot of criticism.
