At this point, Respawn’s battle royale doesn’t need much assistance in its success – the Apex Legends player count can attest to that. But EA made a big bet on streamers just ahead of the game’s announcement, and now we’ve got a pretty good idea of just how big that wager was. A new report suggests Tyler ‘Ninja’ Blevins was paid $1 million USD to play the game on its launch.

Ninja, a streamer with over 13 million followers on Twitch, is best known for streaming a different battle royale game: Epic Games’ “Fortnite.” Electronic Arts (EA) launched “Apex Legends” last month, which is also free-to-play and has already gaining a rapid following. The game drew in 50 million players in less than 30 days. For comparison, “Fortnite” took roughly 100 days to reach 45 million players, and now that player count is more than 200 million.

Representatives for EA and Ninja declined to comment on how much he had been paid, but the amount named by the source is more than twice media reports of Ninja’s monthly earnings from streaming his regular appearances on Fortnite and way above what was speculated on a number of internet discussion boards. EA also paid popular Polish-Canadian streamer “Shroud,” who has nearly six million Twitch followers, to play Apex Legends but declined to disclose the terms of the deal.

But it's money well spent for EA, which saw a huge bump in its share price following the release of Apex Legends. Apex surpassed 25 million players in a week—Fortnite hit 30 million in three months—and as reported by Business Insider, analyst Todd Juenger said its success should "greatly reduce the frustration with management sometimes expressed by investors." In recent weeks, Ninja has switched back to Fortnite, his bread-and-butter game, but Apex Legends remains well-embedded in Twitch's top ten by category.

There is no denying that EA’s decision to partner with big streamers had an impact. On Apex Legends’ release day, it doubled Fortnite’s concurrent viewership numbers—pulling off a coup that, days earlier, nobody would’ve thought possible. More than a month later, Apex Legends remains a Twitch top ten mainstay, often occupying a spot among the service’s top three most-viewed games.

It’s difficult to say how large the reported $1 million EA deal is in comparison to Ninja’s other deals or compared to deals other streamers have made, which have similarly been secret. But we do know that a month after launch, Apex Legends has grown remarkably fast — it now has a quarter of Fortnite’s 200 million registered users, and it’s continuing to grow. Ninja, on the other hand, has resumed streaming Fortnite for the most part since the launch of the game’s eighth season late last month.

Hello. Reading about it seems so strange because these things don't matter. I need only welfare and security. Recently I have learned How To Get SSS ID Number and I am going to check this system and its effectiveness.

It's sad, but it's common these days. Devs put amazing stacks of cash into marketing, while they could achieve same effects with a bit more effort wayyy cheaper. Though they are donkeys, they like to milk their cows, so let them. Who cares. People have way too money anyway and don't know what to do with them, so they might as well just give them away why not. When it comes to paying, I like to see that you pay for some actual value when it comes to gaming. Let's take for example this apex legends you mentioned. There are folks who can guide in many ways and boost your account without any cheats. It's all legit. Just pay them in return for their services. You can browse through their services they offer at https://mmoauctions.com/apex-legends/boosting. And that's a pure example when you pay for something useful and actual, and not waste them like in the case of this 1m $ for almost nothing :P

Apex Legends is a stable action game. It's really enjoyable to play. The cool characters, guns, voice lines, everything about this game is so amazing. Texas Politics The specialty of this game is it's a trio game, only three can play at a time.
