Shroud, Dr. Disrespect and Ninja are Back to Streaming - How Did They Fare?

Recently, three popular streamers - Ninja, Shroud and Dr. Disrespect - have returned to live broadcasts. The audience's favourites have managed to attract a huge number of fans in front of the screens again, although the results of one of them may come as a surprise.

Shroud can count his return to streaming as a success.

Recently, there has been quite a lot of noise about three extremely popular streamers - Ninja, Shroud and Dr. Disrespect. The first two, which for some time could only be watched on Mixer, after Microsoft's streaming platform shut down had to look for a place somewhere else, as well as Dr. Disrespect, who received a permanent ban on Twitch (the reason for this is still unknown). Fans of the aforementioned streamers had to wait a while before seeing their favorites in action again.

Michael "Shroud" Grzesiek's first broadcast after leaving Mixer was launched only yesterday, and managed to attract almost 3 million unique viewers to the screens. At peak moment, he was watched by more than 500 thousand people, and in less than 8 hours over 16 thousand fans subscribed to his channel on Twitch. Even for such a large streamer, these numbers are something that will normally be hard to repeat. There is no doubt, however, that Shroud can count his return to Twitch as a success.

Dr. Disrespect did just as well, and after more than a month from receiving the ban, he finally returned to live streaming, this time on YouTube. During the first stream after the break, about 510,000 people watched him simultaneously. The broadcast has been shown over 2.5 million times so far.

As far as Ninja is concerned, it's worth knowing that after the closing of Mixer, his did a little bit worse than the previous two, which may even come as a big surprise for some. His first stream on YouTube was watched by about 160 thousand viewers at the best moment. On Twitch, on the other hand, the number did not exceed 100 thousand. These are not poor results, of course, but they definitely stand out against the background of the aforementioned two (it is worth remembering, however, that Ninja has not signed a contract with any platform so far; we only know that Shroud has taken up official cooperation with Twitch).
