How many viewers followed streamer Michael "Shroud" Grzesiek after switching to Mixer? According to a recent report, it was just 15 percent of his former fan base. However, his current figures can still be seen on Microsoft's streaming portal.
In October of this year, popular streamer Michael "Shroud" Grzesiek announced his move from Twitch to Mixer – following Tyler "Ninja" Blevins, who had just signed a similar exclusive deal. But how much did this exit ultimately affect the number of viewers? An answer to this is now provided by a current report from StreamMetrics, which contains some interesting numbers.

According to this, Shroud had around 718,000 viewers at Twitch in October 2019, which was more than the total number of viewers at Mixer at the time. In the following month, which was also his first full month on Microsoft's streaming portal, he "only" had 231,000 viewers – just over a third. About 15 percent of the users who followed Shroud at Twitch in October were in his mixer channel in November. At first, that doesn't sound exhilarating. Nevertheless, Microsoft should be satisfied with the development: 127,000 of Shroud's November viewers were completely new to Mixer – a noteworthy increase for the platform.
However, it remains to be seen whether and how long the new streamers will be able to hold or even expand these numbers. Twitch has recently responded to the departure of Ninja, Shroud & Co. by signing several well-known streamers. The competition is therefore in full swing.
