Big Twitch stars jumping ships to Mixer seem to be a common occurence now. In fact, the latest addition to this list is Ewok.
No, not the furry teddy bear-resembling creatures on Star Wars. It’s FaZe clan’s very own Ewok!
In case you have never heard of her before, Ewok is the first female gamer to join “FaZe” which is one of the most successful esports organizations in the world.
She is a lot of things at once: a deaf 13-year-old Fortnite pro, Faze Clan’s first female member and the second one under 14, and the latest prominent streamer to leave Twitch to stream exclusively on the Microsoft-owned rival platform.
Not allowing her deafness to get in the way of her streaming journey, Soleil “Ewok” Wheeler got famous for streaming Fortnite. She has garnered over 284,882 followers on her channel.
In her announcement video posted on Twitter, she paints the Mixer logo on a stark white wall.
Shortly after, she nods, as though she’s appreciating the work she’s done.
Ewok is the latest high-profile Twitch streamer who recently joined Mixer, along with the likes of Ninja, Shroud, and KingGothalion who also recently jumped ships. She’s set to stream exclusively on Mixer. Most notably, she is the only girl streamer on the list so far.
Mixer’s official Twitter account was quick to congratulate Ewok on her transfer.
Ladies and gentleman, welcome to the Mixer Community the legendary Ewok!!!
Official Mixer representatives weren’t shy to express how hyped they all are to have her as part of the family.
Big names in the streaming industry also took it to Twitter to congratulate the teen on her big announcement:
Ex-Twitch superstar Ninja cheered her on,
LETS GO EWOK!!!!!
Jack “CouRage” Dunlop, who recently moved from Twitch to Youtube, also congratulated her:
Yayyyy congrats, Ewok!!!! So happy for you!
Many fans were keen over the news of this latest addition to the growing platform:
“This is truly wonderful!! So happy to have her on mixer!! 💙”
“Welcome to the Mixer family! 💙”
“Mixer keeps empowering & supporting the new generation. We are so happy to be part of it. 🤟”
Ewok is an interesting choice for the platform. She might be big on Twitch, but she doesn’t put up nearly the numbers that other huge names do. Additionally, she’s also relatively new to streaming.
Seems like every streamer acquisition is headed into an upcoming platform wars!
