After a viewer remarked about the quality of a streamer being directly proportionate with the viewership, Mizkif responded:
"You're so f**king stupid when you just said that. Kai has not only elevated himself, he elevated an entire new community to Twitch. It's just the truth. He f**king did. Kai has done more content, puts in more work, and one thing that Kai has, and this is the truth, Kai actually is an entertainer unlike a lot of streamers."
He remarked that the biggest quality Kai possesses is his skill for entertaining:
"You could put Kai in a room with somebody and he'll actually be able to make it entertaining when a lot of streamers f**king hurdle up into a ball and cry. The dude is an entertainer."
