It's been one week since Ninja switched to Mixer. In that week, his channel has already surpassed the 1 million subscriber mark.
Ninja hit yet another landmark yesterday, April 6. This time, it wasn't about breaking Twitch records. Instead, the streamer hit 1,000,000 subscribers on his new platform: Mixer.
Ninja announced his switch to Mixer on August 1, the first day of the new Fortnite season. Less than a week later, his channel has surpassed the 1,000,000 subscriber mark.
Today we hit 1,000,000 active subscribers on mixer ^-^ thank you for all the incredible support. I haven't felt this good in a long time. pic.twitter.com/kdLgBJk0Ud— Ninja (@Ninja) August 6, 2019
The move to Mixer gave Ninja a fresh start. He likely obtained some equity in the platform and was able to get out of the shadow his own success brought with it.
Suffering From Success
The above clip from the H3H3 Podcast discusses Ninja's recent statistics, and how far he fell from his peak.
Meanwhile, people like Tfue have constantly high sub counts, but why is that?
In my opinion, Ninja was a victim of his own success on Twitch. People assumed Ninja was making a ton of money - which he was - and they'd rather use their subscription on a streamer who wasn't as "mainstream" as Ninja.
Ninja even voiced these thoughts a few times. He marveled at the fact that people would mock him for plugging his creator code while FaZe Banks was getting "Code Tfue" tattooed on his leg.
Mixer was a fresh start for Ninja in more ways than one. He was finally able to get out of his own shadow, which opens the door for more opportunities in the future.
