I am quite sure that Ninja doesn’t need an introduction anymore but for those few people who haven’t heard about the most influential personality in the gaming community yet, here you go. Tyler “Ninja” Blevins is a professional Halo player turned Fortnite streamer who has broken several records in 2018. He is currently the most watched streamer on Twitch. Moreover, his YouTube channel is one of the fastest growing channels in terms of subscribers.
In early August, he became the first Twitch streamer to reach 10 million followers. Currently he has around 110,000 subscribers and he pulls a little over 50,000 viewers per stream on average. He also has around 18 million subscribers on his YouTube channel.
Just a few hours ago, Ninja made a reveal on twitter that he will be featured on ESPN as a Professional Gamer.
ESPN is a global powerhouse in Sports and their magazine covers major sports like Football and Basketball. Ninja will be the first ever gamer to not just be featured in a Sports magazine, but to be on the cover of one. This is a huge stepping stone for Esports and gaming to be mainstream sports like Football.
This is an incredible achievement for any gamer and it gives our community a sense of pride in terms of how far we have come.
