To paraphrase Jim Sterling: What if words were also poo? Then this:

Ninja says bans shouldn’t apply to “content creators”

“There’s a difference between a content creator who has millions of subscribers, who then gets banned from what makes him money, and some kid who is just a piece of **** who has zero followers, zero money from gaming and hacks,” Blevins stated.

“You ban that kid and nothing happens to him. Nothing happens. Oh no! He can’t cheat any more. You ban Jarvis – it’s different.”

After receiving pushback on this from his companions in Fortnite, Blevins reiterated his argument. “A content creator cheating, whose entire life is about the game he’s playing and then some random who has no YouTube channel, no Twitter account – he doesn’t even care, he just cheats, he has to hack – you ban one, you ruin his life. You ban the other, he makes another account and keeps cheating.”

Blevins did concede that cheating and recording it was silly but argued that if Logan Paul didn’t get penalised for filming a hanged corpse, then Faze Jarvis should also not get penalised. “Logan Paul literally filmed someone hanging in a forest and his channel didn’t get banned and he’s been perfectly fine,” Blevins said.

“In that aspect, he was a YouTuber, a big one, and he didn’t get banned. YouTube decided that he was big enough to not get banned.”

Epic Games has not at the time of writing responded to Blevins’ remarks regarding their terms of service, which it should be noted, differ considerably from YouTube’s.

He’s just comparing the fact that Logan Paul filming an actual corpse didn’t get him banned from YT and this kids ‘crime’ was not as bad. It’s not THAT bad...

But Logan Paul has many million more subs than Drippy Cheating Kid [/Ninja]

Also, read that last sentence again in the piece.

So as long as you have millions of viewers you can do whatever you want.

Similar to why twitter won't ban Trump for hate speak.

Yes banning a "content creator" ( :dread: ) is different to banning a random, it will have an impact on that creators ability to do what they do.

So maybe if you're a content creator you should think for 5 seconds and avoid doing things that will get you banned? Just a thought.

Morale at Mixer is low, and new management is making it worse, employee says

With Microsoft is set to release its Xbox Series X console and take the wraps off its xCloud streaming game service later this year, it would seem imperative that the company’s in-house game streaming platform is up to snuff to host the wave of impassioned gamers that would ideally flood to the service to showcase its latest offerings.

As has been reported, Mixer has had a rough few months that involved the original founders leaving the business alongside a general manager and corporate vice president. However, what hasn’t been reported is that over the last six months, there have been sixteen layoffs due to budget cuts which have shed roughly 25% of an already skeletal team and are causing feature releases to slip schedules. That’s according to a Mixer employee who reached out to us, concerned about the direction and fate of Mixer, in an email sent to us via ProtonMail entitled “Why Microsoft Mixer Will Fail.”

During an internal Mixer town hall last week, executives spoke to its skeleton crew of employees to address the growing sense of frustration and low morale within the business, unfortunately, their words left a lot to be desired. The employee included a video of part of the meeting. Leading up to her town hall appearance last week, newly appointed general manager Shilpa Yadla had been meeting with employees one on one, presumably to assuage fears and concerns, but on stage, her words may have had the adverse effect.

Not a great look with the tens of millions spent on the new streamers.

If they didn't intend to pay them in instalments then that's hilarious.

I think this is really about the future cloud gaming battle, with Amazon, Google and Microsoft looking to provide their own cloud gaming services where people can click through and instantly play the games they're watching others stream. Amazon is apparently working on their own cloud gaming service to integrate with Twitch, Google is integrating Stadia with YouTube, and Mixer wasn't popular enough so Xcloud is going with the only other real player left, Facebook.

It’s been in trouble for a while now, the £20m to pay off Ninja and Shroud is peanuts to how much money they’ve lost setting up the service in the first place.

A disaster all ‘round really. Bury the news and then the July showcase. Nobody at MS will mention mixer or Facebook gaming again, thank fook.
