Another popular Twitch streamer, Michael “Shroud” Grzesiek, has left the service to stream exclusively on Mixer.
Michael “Shroud” Grzesiek announced this week he had left Twitch to stream exclusively through Microsoft’s streaming service, Mixer.
His first stream occurred on October 24, and according to figures, 250,000 folks followed him to the service to watch him play Call of Duty: Modern Warfare. His stream peaked at 78,000 viewers (thanks, Dexertro).
What an incredible first stream on @WatchMixer. Mind blown by the support of both mine and Mixers communities. You guys made this such an easy transition, excited for the future! <3

While Microsoft’s streaming service isn’t as popular as Twitch, the company pulling in another streaming star shows its serious about competing. And with Shroud on board, the numbers could prove impressive.
Shroud follows in the footsteps of another popular streamer, Tyler “Ninja” Blevins, who left Twitch for Mixer in August.
The first weekend Ninja streamed exclusively on Mixer, he hit 633,232 followers and had 3.8 million total views. On Twitch he had ten million followers, but not as many subscribers.
