YouTube lures three more top streamers away from Twitch

Twitch is once again losing some big-name streamers to YouTube. Lannan "LazarBeam" Eacott, Elliott "Muselk" Watkins and Rachell "Valkyrae" Hofstetter (above) have announced that they'll livestream exclusively on Google's video service. It's not a completely surprising move when the three are already big YouTubers, and it makes particular sense for Valkyrae to join her colleague CouRage. Still, it's a big blow at a time when Twitch is already reeling from an exodus of high-profile broadcasters -- the trio have a total of 21 million YouTube subscribers.
