Twitch streamer regrets turning down shady million-dollar deal: ‘I’m so jealous of these bags’

Twitch streamer Chance “Sodapoppin” Morris has now explained in a live stream what he regrets about his Twitch career: He should have accepted one of Microsoft’s dubious deals to switch to the Mixer platform. But because he stuck to his ethical principles and remained loyal to his fans on Twitch, he missed the opportunity to be bought for a lot of money.

Who is the streamer?

For streamers like Sodapoppin, Prime Gaming has really been life-changing over the years:

The secret behind the success of Prime Gaming, Twitch

“These donkeys make millions of dollars and then they have to come back!”

He regrets it: In a livestream from OTK on August 11th, where the PCs are now being assembled, Sodapoppin said he didn’t do a Mixer deal like Twitch streamers Shroud and Ninja did in 2019:

I wish I was so jealous if I even went to the mixer! that ass [gemeint sind Ninja und shroud] Sign the contract, deposit tens of millions of dollars in US dollars and… then they can just come back!

They turned off the mixers and they got to keep the damn money.

Don’t want to sell, Sodapoppin turned down the deal

What Sodapoppin learned from this: Looking back, Sodapoppin got it all wrong, as they say today:

Do you know how it feels when you’re offered a contract and then you’re like, ‘Hmm, no… Morality! What I have is enough for me. Take care” and then you fuck like this. I just do shit. I have to start doing suspicious shit now! It’s just useless. it hurts.

Asked if he still accepts events like Saudi Arabia, he immediately says: “Yeah, I’ll fly there!” And then he starts laughing.

Quit Twitch, Cash in and come back after a few months

What’s the deal with blenders? As Sodapoppin says, there was an absurd situation. Microsoft wanted to attack Twitch with its service, Mixer. To do this, they bought Superstars from Twitch Ninja and Shroud and offered them multi-year contracts. As you can hear, these contracts were very well concluded.

Talks of 20 to 30 million US dollars were going on for two-three years. Because during their time on Mixer streamers gave away their extremely high income from Twitch, which they had through Twitch subscriptions and deals.

Microsoft apparently had plans to use Ninjas and Shroud as brand ambassadors for Mixer and the entire Xbox and Game Pass.

While Ninja and Shroud are raking in cash, the tiny Mixer streamers are completely doomed.

But when the two streamers changed, it became clear that Mixer was not a success. Ultimately, Microsoft pulled RipRecord and discontinued Mixer. Mixer then joined Facebook Gaming, their streaming service.

Facebook reportedly tried to expand Shroud and Ninja’s deals so they could stream on Facebook, but they cashed out on their exorbitantly high contracts and went back to Twitch.

So it was perfect for Ninja and Shroud, because they had a lot of money, but they didn’t even have to fulfill their contract.

Ninjas and Shroud have all benefited from miscalculations by Microsoft.

Sodapoppin, on the other hand, didn’t want to disappoint his loyal fans on Twitch and didn’t want to “sell himself”. He would not have sold himself, but rented it for a lot of money for a short period of time.

Till date, it is not known which Twitch streamers Microsoft has offered such a big deal. But apparently Sodapoppin was among the chosen ones. Mixer is also said to have contacted Dr. Aadar – who is still angry that he didn’t take the money.
