“I’m so jealous of these bags”

Twitch streamer Chance “Sodapoppin” Morris has now explained in a live stream what he regrets about his Twitch career: he should have accepted one of Microsoft’s dubious deals to switch to the mixer platform. However, because he stuck to his ethical principles and remained loyal to his fans on Twitch, he missed the opportunity to be bought for big money.

Who is the streamer?

For streamers like Sodapoppin, Prime Gaming has truly changed lives over the years:

“These donkeys make millions of dollars and then they have to come back!”

He regrets it: In an Aug. 11 livestream from OTK, where the PCs are now being assembled, Sodapoppin said he didn’t make a mixer deal like Twitch streamers Shroud and Ninja did in 2019:

I wish I was that jealous if I even went to the blender! that ass [gemeint sind Ninja und shroud] Sign the contract, deposit tens of millions of dollars in US dollars and…then they can just come back!

They shut down the blenders and got to keep the damn money.

I don’t want to sell, Sodapoppin turned down the deal

What Sodapoppin learned from this: Looking back, Sodapoppin got it all wrong, as they say today:

You know how it feels when you’re offered a contract and then you’re like, “Hmm, no… morals! What I have is enough for me. Take care” and then you fuck like that. I just do shit. I gotta start doing suspicious shit now! It’s just useless. it hurts.

When asked if he still accepts events like Saudi Arabia, he immediately says: “Yes, I’m going there!” And then he starts to laugh.

Quit Twitch, cash in and come back in a few months

What’s the deal with mixers? As Sodapoppin says, there was an absurd situation. Microsoft wanted to attack Twitch with its Mixer service. To do this, they bought superstars from Twitch Ninja and Shroud and offered them multi-year contracts. As you can hear, these contracts were concluded very well.

For two to three years, $20 to $30 million was talked about. Because during their time on Mixer, streamers gave away their extremely high earnings from Twitch, which they had through Twitch subscriptions and deals.

Microsoft apparently had plans to use Ninjas and Shroud as brand ambassadors for Mixer and across Xbox and Game Pass.

While Ninja and Shroud rake in hard cash, the tiny Mixer streamers are doomed.

But when the two streamers switched, it became clear that Mixer wasn’t a success. Ultimately, Microsoft withdrew RipRecord and discontinued Mixer. Mixer then joined Facebook Gaming, their streaming service.

Facebook reportedly tried to expand Shroud and Ninja’s deals so they could stream on Facebook, but they cashed out on their exorbitantly high contracts and returned to Twitch.

So it was perfect for Ninja and Shroud because they had a lot of money but they didn’t even have to fulfill their contract.

Ninjas and Shroud have all benefited from Microsoft miscalculations.

Sodapoppin, on the other hand, didn’t want to disappoint their loyal fans on Twitch and didn’t want to “sell” themselves. He would not have sold himself, but rented for a lot of money for a short time.

To this day, it is not known which Twitch streamers Microsoft offered such a big deal. But apparently Sodapoppin was among the chosen ones. Mixer should also Dr. Contacted Aadar – who is still furious that he didn’t take the money.
