  • Jeremy “Disguised Toast” Wang will now stream games and video exclusively from Facebook Gaming.
  • Wang made his name in Hearthstone but recently rose in the streamer ranks during the launch of Riot’s Legends of Runeterra.
  • Wang is the fifth high profile streamer to leave Twitch for an exclusive deal with another platform in recent months.

Card game and auto-battler streamer Jeremy “Disguised Toast” Wang has signed an exclusive streaming deal with Facebook Gaming. Wang is among the first high profile Twitch streamers to leave to exclusively stream on Facebook’s platform. The deal was brokered by Wang’s representatives at United Talent Agency.

Wang first gained notoriety producing YouTube videos about Hearthstone, eventually moving to stream the game on Twitch. His stream saw a surge of popularity over the summer when he moved to Riot Game’s auto-battler Teamfight Tactics, and another major spike during the first test phase of the developer’s new card game, Legends of Runeterra last month. During that week, Wang was the second most-watched streamer on the platform.

To date, Wang has gained 1.3M followers on Twitch, 240K on Twitter, and has 950K subscribers on his primary YouTube channel. 

Facebook Gaming joins a growing list of streaming platforms looking to pull top streamers away from Twitch. Microsoft’s Mixer has signed Tyler “Ninja” Blevins, Michael “Shroud” Grzesiek, and Soleil “Ewok” Wheeler; startup platform Caffeine has deals in place with esports organizations like Natus Vincere and Dignitas as well as rapper Kiari Kendrell “Offset” Cephus; and Jack “CouRage” Dunlop recently moved to YouTube.
