Tyler “Ninja” Blevins, Fortnite’s biggest streamer and personality, has unveiled his new streaming setup with a new behind the scenes video.
The room, which Ninja calls the “Ninja Dojo” and claims to be “the best streaming setup on Twitch” (not entirely undeservedly), boasts multiple camera angles, more monitors than some small businesses, a respectable assortment of snacks and various other amenities – including a disco ball and a full analyst desk. It was conceived in meetings with multiple people who pitched ideas, and eventually they built a scaled-down model of the room. Unsurprisingly, you can expect a lot of Red Bull ads – Ninja’s partner and main sponsor no doubt covered a lot of the costs in creating the state-of-the-art studio, and certainly provided a lot of the refreshments.
The popular streamer’s career started in the August of 2012, where he first appeared on Justin.TV, the precursor of Twitch. The presentation of the new room showed a short clip from his initial video from six years ago, when he was a university student starting with budget equipment. He has grown to be the face of Fortnite and one of, if not the biggest gaming and esports personalities worldwide, and this year announced a high-profile (and likely high-profit) partnership with Red Bull.
Ninja’s ability to play off the background setup in his reactions was one of the reasons for his popularity, and the new streaming room will give him the tools to do that even better. This year he already won the 2018 Esports Awards for Streamer of the Year and Personality of the Year. With such a setup, competitors better step up their game.
Meanwhile, enjoy your new setup, champ. It does look awesome.
