Ninja Addresses Decline in Twitch Viewership

Published

Tyler “Ninja” Blevins was, for a few years, the megastar of online-streaming, skyrocketing to success on Amazon’s Twitch platform before jumping to Microsoft’s now-defunct Mixer platform. While Ninja would eventually make his return to Twitch, his numbers would continue to decline, and Ninja is no longer pulling in the record-breaking numbers that he became known for.

“No one’s gonna stay on top forever, especially when it comes to live-streaming; there’s always somebody new and hot,” Blevins said during an interview with the Washington Post. “I have no intention of being that guy anymore. I know I’m not going to pull 100,000 viewers on [Twitch] anymore. I don’t have time to do that. I have a wife, I have a family.”

Ninja has voiced his frustrations with fans being hyper focused on analytics, but he says he is learning to adapt.

“[Fans] are focusing on what they can see in front of them, which is numbers and ‘Ninja isn’t getting 100,000 viewers anymore,’ but what they don’t see is everything we created while we were massive and [the] global recognition we have that’s bigger than just streaming on Twitch,”

“I have been doing ‘Fortnite,’ which is obviously what blew me up, so it’s great that I’m starting to enjoy the game [again] and can stream it and play it and just have fun,” Blevins said. “But whenever I want to play any other game, I can switch to that and know that it really isn’t going to affect anything on the back end with deals or anything. It’s incredibly relaxing to be able to play what I want.”

Ninja has cut down on the hours he streams as well, long past the days in which he would consistently clock in 12-16 ours a day back in 2018.

“Back in the day, when streaming wasn’t really mainstream, there weren’t a lot of things to do other than stream, right?”

Ninja also knows that non-gaming content is creating new stars on Twitch, and has been struggling to find where to expand his current content offerings from just gaming.

“Literally that’s the reason I’m kind of stuck, or where I’m at right now,” Ninja said. “I love gaming, and I’m always gonna love gaming. I don’t want to be a react streamer where I sit and watch videos for eight hours. I start my stream, and I’m immediately in a game. Stream goes live, intro’s out and I’m queued up. I’m playing. That’s all I want to do.”
