Mixer has signed away another big Twitch livestreamer. A couple months after Tyler “Ninja” Blevins committed to the Microsoft streaming platform, Michael “Shroud” Grzesiek announced today that he too has reached a deal to exclusively stream gameplay and video through Mixer.

Wow. I’m legit stunned.

I think I’m more shocked about this news than when Ninja moved over. When he left Twitch, I felt that Shroud was poised to take one of “top spots” on the platform. Now, with him moving over, I have no idea.

While it’s a surprise, this is good for everyone involved, short of Twitch, as it’ll continue to encourage healthy competition between the two platforms and help streamers grow on both Twitch and Mixer.
