Twitch Streamer xQc claims big streamers have mistaken with YouTube deals- Top Twitch broadcaster xQc says individuals “f**ked it” under their agreements with the Google-owned platform after Fuslie announced that she was transferring to YouTube to accompany colleagues like Sykkuno, Valkyrae, and LilyPichu.
Delegates of the OfflineTV and “Amigops” groups have also been moving from Twitch to YouTube, alongside TimTheTatman, Myth, Ludwig, DrLupo, and others. In an apparent determined effort to replicate the robust sense of community that Twitch has built up, YouTube is signing up closely related producers.

But because of this, xQc thinks that these broadcasters (Fuslie, Sykkuno, Valkyrae, LilyPichu, and others) might have pushed YouTube for more advantageous agreements.
“No joke, I think OTV, they kinda f**ked it,” xQc commented. “Let’s say they’re being paid about one or two million each, a year, right? Let’s do some quick maths.“
“I truly think, what if OTV banded altogether, and then said, ‘yo, dude, you cannot get any of us to YouTube, unless you give us a package deal – you buy out all of OTV for $200 million.’ I’m not kidding.”
“I think the likeliness of a big number like this to happen, would have actually worked. I’m not kidding. Because you’re not buying a piece of something, you’re buying one big thing, and that’s worth a lot of money.”
The fact that not every one of these broadcasters is actually an OfflineTV subscriber thus this point presents a little flaw in xQc’s study. LilyPichu is the sole member of the four who is an official OTV participant, despite the other three being inherently linked.
As opposed to purchasing out individuals, xQc thinks that buying out whole communities will become the “norm” in the business moving ahead, irrespective of whether it involves platform partnerships or sponsorships.
