Hearthstone Player Disguised Toast Now Streaming Exclusively On Facebook

Did you know Facebook has its own streaming platform? Facebook Gaming, which is very much a thing, has signed its first exclusive streamer. Jeremy "Disguised Toast" Wang will now stream only on Facebook Gaming, leaving behind his 1.3 million followers on Twitch

Disguised Toast announced this move today via Twitter, where, unlike Shroud or Ninja, he simply told the audience what was going on in a simple, vlog-style video. He said originally he was given a $20,000 production budget to make a bombastic video in the same way Shroud did when he announced his shocking move to Mixer, but Disguised Toast took the check and donated it to the Los Angeles Children's Hospital. Nice. 

Disguised Toast has made a name for himself through his engaging Hearthstone streams and, more recently, his affinity for Riot's popular new game: Teamfight Tactics. He lives in a shared home (read: LA mansion) with other well-known streamers like Pokimane, LilyPichu, Scarra, and Fedmyster. Together they make up the OfflineTV house, which hosts a YouTube channel boasting over 800,000 subscribers and videos that get well over a million views. 

The rest of the OfflineTV house appear to be sticking to Twitch, where they all enjoy an incredible amount of followers. At least for now. Disguised Toast is just the latest big time Twitch streamer to jump ship in favor a new platform, presumably raking in a pretty penny for their exclusive participation. Despite the streaming platform's humble beginnings, the biggest name in streaming, Tyler "Ninja" Blevins, now calls Mixer home. The same goes for Michael "Shroud" Grzesiek. 

Why would these streamers make the move from a proven money maker like Twitch? Other platforms like Mixer, YouTube Gaming, and now Facebook Gaming are trying to get in on all the streaming action and are willing to shell out some serious cash to get big name streamers to stream on their platform, and only their platform. Where do you think that $20,000 check Disguised Toast donated came from? It was likely just one part of the deal made with Facebook to make his income, which relies on fans, a little bit more reliable.

Disguised Toast will be hosting his first Facebook Gaming stream later today.
