With Ninja making the move over to Microsoft's Mixer streaming service, the Fortnite star has put the upstart service into the spotlight; and not all of it for the good.

What in Mixer's clothing rules has ruffled so many feathers?

How does Twitch do it differently, and why might Twitch streamers have a problem with Mixer's approach?

And can we really say one approach is better than the other?

You bet we can.

It's Boom and Bust...for Virtual Legality.
