  • Professional Fortnite player FaZe Ewok is leaving Twitch for Mixer.
  • The 14-year-old streamer and gamer has 284,910 followers on Twitch.
  • Fortnite streamer Ninja left Twitch for Mixer in August.

In a post on Twitter, professional Fortnite player FaZe Ewok announced that she would now be streaming on Mixer. The Fortnite player, who at 13 years old became the first member of professional esports group FaZe, has 284,910 followers on Twitch.

FaZe Ewok announced her big move to Mixer in a video she posted to Twitter . In the video, the Fortnite player can be seen painting the Mixer logo on the wall in the colors pink, blue, and purple.

The video then ends by showing her Mixer URL, which is mixer.com/ewok . In the chat of her Mixer channel, many fans are welcoming her to the site.

The teenager has yet to host her first stream on Mixer, but she has thousands of followers. The Twitter video has 1.3 million views, and her Mixer account now has 7,222 followers. FaZe Ewok’s Mixer follower count will likely grow as news of her move to Mixer gets around to the thousands of people who follow her on Twitch.

The teenage Fortnite player isn’t the only popular streamer who has moved from Twitch to Mixer. In August, Fortnite player Ninja moved to Mixer and in October, King Gothalion and World of Warcraft streamer shroud also moved from Twitch to Mixer.

Ninja said that his decision to move to Mixer came from his unhappiness with Twitch; by moving to Mixer, he would be able to work with Microsoft and do deals with companies such as Adidas. It’s unclear what prompted FaZe Ewok to move to Mixer and if it was for the same reasons as Ninja, shroud, and King Gothalion. However, many will be wondering if Twitch can do something to stop any more of its major stars from leaving.
