  • Daily Poll 165: Will Mixer be more successful than Twitch?

    Last Daily Poll was on music in games. Check it out here: https://www.exclusivelygames.com/for...of-game-design

    Microsoft gave Ninja a boatload of money to exclusively stream on Mixer. Ninja is the most well known streamer as far as I know. At the time I'm writing this Ninja has over 800,000 followers on Mixer. Will this fanbase stay on Mixer after he inevitable leaves Mixer or becomes irrelevant? I do think it's possible since Twitch is getting hammered hard in terms of the bad PR over their awful TOS and how they enforce. Mixer might become like this as well if they get too big too quickly. What do you guys think?

    That's too early to say honestly, if they actually do implement rules against... Spicy content, then possibly. Or that might be what bites them in the ass in the end, since that kind of content seems to bring in so much Money and attention that Twitch does anything to keep it around.

        I honestly doubt it. Ninja isn't going to pull in major numbers long term and the platform will remain as forgotten is it was before the media tried to make a buck on his switching there.

          It's basically still up in the air, I'd even lean towards "it won't be as successful as Twitch" but I have hope that Mixer can at least survive and sustain itself instead of getting canned. Twitch has sadly deviated from gameplay towards camwhoring, but instead of jebaiting adults like the women do on pornhub or other sites these camwhores pray on 15ish year old boys with access to daddy's credit card.
          I'm not against women streaming, but at least have some morals and own up and admit to what you're doing...

            This statement is called generalizing, and it is oddly enough, not generally what happens. The amount of women who play games on twitch massively outweighs the amount who are basically caming there. The loud minority may make it seem otherwise, but that is simply not the case.

              Which is why I'm still undecided.
              The Mixer dress code will piss off a lot of streamers that do legit content as well because they like to dress a certain way.

            I think there is a chance it will get as successful as Twitch if Mixer makes sure to not brake his own rules and keep the Thots of Twitch far away from it.

            Only then it might just have a chance imho.
            Even better if it doesn't have a IRL section (I don't use mixer so I don't know what it has or what it doesn't have).

            At the moment Twitch is slowly bleeding it self and I do believe there can be an opportunity for Mixer to get a good chunk of gaming streamers (No thots allowed) out of Twitch.

              Twitch, just like YT have countless bots that boost views, likes. Apple has them too (to promote apps reviews/downloads)
              In China it is actually full time job to be online 'bot' (and as it become a thing, devs developed true bots under countless fake accounts)
              That is why a honest company, that does not push ghost-users, won't be same successful in the matter of 'views', but same, if not more successful in matter actual people logging in, being active and liking it.

              As for the dress code, if it is for underage gamers, I agree it should be family friendly. Of course young boys will be attracted to cleavages, like moths to torch light, but Mixer should be for all, not only for young horny boys. That is why I endorse their dress code.

              As soon the companies, paying $ for advertisement, realize that huge % of the viewers of their AD were soulless bots, who never will purchase their product, they might walk away too.

                Tricking your own investors in various ways seems to be the industry norm though, not just bots for views, anything that pads numbers is fair game.

              I don't care. I always considered Twitch a crap service due to its messy interface and low stream quality, their double standards are just the latest issue with the platform. Mixer, I legit never heard of it until now, and that service has been around since 2015 and I doubt one streamer is going to save it. Poaching Ninja will help Microsoft as much as poaching games helped Epic.

                I don't actually think Epic poaches games to help themselves, I think they are poaching games to hurt everyone else.

              It'll need a bigger userbase first of all. Secondly, I actually like mixer's layout more than Twitch, and I think the leveling up system is a smart way to keep people's attention on their favorite streamer. But first of all they definitely need to get some new talent and buy some more people off from Twitch even though I hate to say it because I hate exclusivity deals in general. However, Twitch is becoming this selective enforcer of it's own rules and that has really thrown me off.

                  As a pro-Capitalist poll-ee; "I don't care" was my option because I don't know what mixer is, but if it provides a better service than Twitch then awesome.

                    I don't use Twitch, but I always view competition as healthy so I hope mixer succeeds

                      I only watch a few smaller game streamers, it is my experience that after a streamer reaches a certain amount of followers it's usually not Worth watching their content anymore.

                        They don't need to replace twitch, they just need to make a profit.
