Twitch sensation Felix “xQc” responded to fellow content creator Tyler “Ninja’s” recent announcement of simulcasting on multiple live streaming platforms.
Earlier today, Felix hosted a 10-hour stream during which he and his friends spent most of the time playing Fortnite. After two hours, a friend of the streamer reported that Ninja had tweeted an update.
After watching Tyler’s announcement along with his audience, xQc praised the former, noting that multi-platform content creators are “the future of the universe”. He said:
“Actually clever. No, it’s actually, it’s actually kind of clever.”
xQc gives a look at Ninja’s latest ‘everywhere’ streaming announcement
At the beginning of the month, Ninja broke the news when he abruptly ended his broadcast. He announced on his main Twitter account that he would be taking a break and wasn’t sure “where” he would be streaming next.
On September 9, the Fortnite star finally broke his silence and shared a 43-second announcement clip. He revealed that he will be streaming live “everywhere” and mentioned:
“Hi, I’m Tyler ‘Ninja’ Blevins and I’ll be live everywhere. Twitter, Instagram, TikTok, Facebook, YouTube, Twitch, Patreon. Maybe OnlyFans?”
Felix reacted to the announcement during today’s in-game live stream, applauding Ninja’s move. He recalled a moment when he had a conversation with his audience about streamers broadcasting simultaneously on multiple platforms:
“Guys, guys, I said it last time. You can’t say I didn’t say it. It’s literally like the future of space. It’s multistreams.”
xQc then explained why he won’t be live streaming on multiple platforms at once:
“The only reason I wouldn’t do it is because it dilutes the actual direct interactions. It’s very diluted. So until these systems are adapted enough, they have to like it, treat it and find a way around it. It’s entertainment.”
A former Overwatch pro provided the following recommendations to improve user interaction on the website:
“So I think the thing you would need to organize and create is a unified chat from all sources into one. It looks unified and the only thing that differentiates it is it shows you as a badge or an icon. That tells you where it’s from .”
Fans react to the streamer’s opinion
The YouTube comments section contained over 226 fan reactions. Several viewers agreed with xQc’s take, with some suggesting that more streams might lead to less interaction:
