Richard “Ninja” Tyler Blevins is one of the most popular video-game streamers/ professional gamers in the world. Ninja began his career playing as a competitive gamer in Halo3 and played for multiple eSports teams. This includes Cloud9, Renegades, Team Liquid, and Luminosity Gaming. For Luminosity Gaming, Ninja started off as a Halo player and then tried his hands at H1Z1 Battle Royale and then PUBG. Ninja’s rise in popularity is said to be directly related with Fortnite’s sudden rise in prominence. Ninja’s followers on Twitch grew from around half a million in September 2017 to around 2 million by March of next year. He won the PUBG Gamescom Invitational Squads classification in August 2017, and has been active on both Twitch and YouTube since 2011.
This is excluding a brief period of time, as back in August 2019 Ninja had left Twitch to join Microsoft’s Mixer platform exclusively. His wife and manager Jessica Blevins had complained about the limitations that had been placed on Ninja by his Twitch contract that curtailed his scope for growth outside of video-games. Regardless, Mixer shut down in May 2020, and Ninja returned to Twitch in September, much to the delight of his fans worldwide. Currently, NInja has around 16.7 million followers on Twitch and around 24.2 million subscribers on YouTube.
