Anyone else remember when this kind of thing [used to be a joke? ](https://i.imgur.com/oDIRApe.jpg)
Who gives a shit about this pink haired moron.
for a million you could have hired someone with a clue to tell you how to make the game actually good…
Imagine making millions of dollars playing video games. Fuck.
This guy went to my high school (I knew his brother directly) and anytime I see him in the news, I just can’t really wrap my mind around it.
Good for him making a million. [But at what cost? WHAT COST?!](https://i.imgur.com/3XZV9Yh.jpg)
It’s funny because since it came out Ninja has dropped to 8th most subbed on Twitch with Shroud at #1 by a wide margin.
i think that is his job ?!

This is completely “allegedly” and “from anonymous sources “ most of these deals pay by the hour and by viewer count. Someone said in this thread he had about 60k viewers on the higher end of these deals the stream gets $1 per viewer per hour (according to disguised toast, another popular streamer). So Ninja would have had to be getting double that ($2 per viewer per hour) and be sponsored for 8 hours to get 1 million or something along those lines. Seems somewhat far fetched but still within the realm of possibilities especially since he is/was the biggest streamer by far.
“dad, you said I’d never make money playing video games BUT LOOK AT ME NOW”
“…I’m still disappointed son.”
Shoe companies pay NBA and College players to wear their shoes, Nike, Taylormade and the rest pay golfers to use their equipment. Is this that different? It seems if anything, things like this furthers the legitimacy of E-sports as comparable to other sports.
fuck, whatever, all the power to the kid. good for him.
I don’t care if they’re paid to stream; I care if they disclose such fact or not.
“The fuck you say to me you little shit”
Did he disclose it while he was doing it?
Video game performance and adderall consumption go hand-in-hand
As long as the streamers notified viewers it was a paid ad, there is nothing wrong with it.
I too am an extreme gamer EA, I’ll take $100,000
Watching Apex blow up overnight, this was obvious.

Isn’t that Pewdiepie?
Good for him? Advertising budgets are stupidly huge. If it was $1 million on TV or Youtube ads there wouldn’t be an article.
The only thing I care about is whether during this contract Ninja and the others clearly stated it was an advertisement by EA, which I am pretty sure Twitch requires.
It’s not new that companies pay streamers to play games, but they are supposed to clearly state they are being paid for that time.
I wouldn’t say he is the top gamer. That’s a little to much.
