  • ninja's move to mixer brings more streamers but not more viewers



    Quote





    Tyler "Ninja" Blevins is the most recognizable professional gamer in the world, and on August 1, he announced that he would be leaving his 14 million Twitch followers behind for an exclusive streaming deal with Microsoft's Mixer.






    Quote





    The move was seen as a major gamble, since Twitch is by far the most dominant platform for video game streaming, and Mixer has struggled to find a foothold in the industry since its launch in 2016. After a well-publicized debut, Ninja has managed to earn more than 2.3 million followers on Mixer, making him the platform's most popular content creator by far.






    Quote





    Since Ninja arrived, Mixer has also seen a large influx of new streamers giving the platform a chance. According to data from Newzoo, total hours of gaming content streamed on Mixer increased to 32.6 million during the last three months, a 188% increase from the three months prior.

    However, the excitement among streamers hasn't translated into more viewers. Mixer saw a 10.6% decrease in total hours watched during the last three months, according to Newzoo. Data from StreamElements shows that Mixer had less hours watched in September (29.6 million), a month after Ninja arrived, than it did in July (37.7 million), the month before his exclusive deal began.










    Quote





    This likely means that Ninja will struggle to reach the same sort of viewership he saw on Twitch in the near future, but the exclusive deal with Microsoft has other benefits. Ninja's manager and wife Jessica Blevins told Business Insider that he chose to leave Twitch so he could expand his brand beyond streaming. Since joining Mixer, Ninja has released a book, announced an apparel deal with Mixer, and appeared on an episode of Fox's "The Masked Singer."

    I'm surprised at how much twitch dominates the streaming market. And this stat makes an earlier article I read about ESL csgo pro league and ESL one dota 2 exclusivity deal with facebook insanely dumb though now they apparently will end it after December which isn't surprising as a tournament organizer to attract advertisers you need to show that you have the viewers. Also a streamer I watched recently said that facebook approached him and offered him more money than he was currently getting on twitch to stream for facebook exclusively but he turned it down because he thinks he can grow more on twitch.

    • Nationwide ban of Galaxy S10 Fingerprint Reader - fingerprint log in removed from banking app
      by Dudicrous
      Related to the recent security flaw found with the Galaxy S/Note 10 series, which you can read more about below 





      Banks in the UK have decided that the flaw with the fingerprint reader is too much of a compromise for its customers and have started removing the fingerprint option for the app. 




      At the moment it's just Nationwide and Natwest that have done so, but I wouldn't be surprised if others followed suit.

    • Intel Xe GPU release date, specs, and performance
      by Dudicrous
      The Intel Xe GPU represents Intel’s first foray into discrete graphics since the ill-fated Larrabee project many years ago. But let’s not dwell on the past, this is a bright new future for Intel, and potentially PC gamers too, as it means we’re going to have a genuine third player in the graphics market and that can only be a good thing. For us, at least.
      • It looks likely that the initial Xe GPUs will largely be based on the building blocks put in place by the Ice Lake Gen11 graphics architect

    • Verizon can't cover a basketball stadium with 5G
      by Dudicrous


      Quote





      Verizon on Friday announced that its 5G network is now available in three NBA arenas and is coming to seven more by the end of the 2019-2020 basketball season. But there's a big caveat, just like there is with Verizon's 5G coverage in NFL stadiums: Verizon 5G only covers some of the seating areas.

      Quote





      TeamSpeak, one of the most popular voice communication apps for gaming before Discord came along and took over the world, is returning with a new look. The team behind the software has kicked off a closed beta for a completely new application that does away with the old school setup for something that will obviously be compared to what Discord offers.
