Xbox gamer, Stallion83, who was the first person to ever reach the 1 and 2 million Gamerscore milestones has made the leap from the popular Twitch video game streaming service to Microsoft’s rival, Mixer.
While Stallion83 had actually had his Mixer account since 2016, he had also been a Twitch Partner, a role that prevents streamers from broadcasting on rival platforms.
Today's live stream on Twitch will be my last.
So many great memories to share of almost 6 awesome years of streaming on Twitch & that's all because of my amazing viewers. You guys are the only reason I love doing it. It begins and ends with you. Thank you all so much <3

Stallion83 streamed on Twitch for the last time two weeks ago and began streaming on Mixer almost immediately. The transition was promoted on the official Mixer Twitter account earlier today. It’s unclear why Stallion83 decided to change platforms.

Mixer is Microsoft’s direct competitor to Amazon’s Twitch. It’s a streaming video platform that’s primarily designed to broadcast video game gameplay but is also used for streaming the occasional special event or esports competition.
