North American esports organization 100 Thieves have unveiled popular YouTuber ‘NoahJ456’ as the newest member of its content creation team.

With over 3.5 million subscribers, Noah joins the org as one of the biggest and most recognizable names in the online gaming community.

Although the YouTuber had been hinting at a major announcement in the past several days, the move was officially revealed on June 25th via a post on the 100 Thieves official Twitter page.

The news also came with a lengthy YouTube video in which the newest 100 Thieves member sits and chats with the org’s owner and fellow popular YouTuber Matt ‘Nadeshot’ Haag.

Welcome NoahJ456 to 100 Thieves!

Noah joins us as one of our first content creators. He’s been an active member of the YouTube community for the past 11 years and has grown his channel to over 3.5 million subscribers. We’re so excited to have him as an official member of 100 Thieves and can’t wait to share more content together! #100T #HonorAmongThieves

Having been around the online gaming and content creation communities for a very long time, NoahJ456 has seen his popularity rise even further in the past year with the emergence of the massively popular game Fortnite: Battle Royale.

In addition to being a mainstay participant in the weekly Friday Fortnite competition, the YouTuber was recently invited to compete in the $3M Fortnite Pro-Am Celebrity Tournament in Los Angeles as part of the E3 gaming convention.

Although 100 Thieves has been heavily involved in esports with its successful League of Legends pro team and its recently unveiled pro Fortnite roster, this announcement marks the first time a major content creator has joined the org since Twitch streamer Nick ‘NICKMERCS’ Kolcheff joined in 2016.

Judging by the popularity of his content, eccentric and positive personality, and strong Fortnite ability, NoahJ456 looks to be a sure-fire addition for one of the most popular organizations in esports.

Apex Legends streamer Dizzy returns from hiatus to play Valorant

Coby ‘Dizzy’ Meadows practically took over Apex Legends esports before moving to streaming, and then leaving social media entirely in July. Now he’s back, and ready to take on a whole new challenge: Valorant.

Dizzy was known for his stellar Apex Legends play, with thousands of viewers heading to his stream or whatever pro event he was playing in to watch him put on a show. He swept through basically everyone he came across in matches, leaving no doubt he was one of the best players around

Then, in July 2020 he disappeared from the internet entirely, after stepping back from Apex esports in 2019 to focus on streaming the game. Now, after roughly six months, Dizzy has announced his return and the latest game he’ll attempt to master.

EXP Pro-Am Apex Legends ExhibitionDizzy was one of the most well-known Apex pros since release, even winning the very first Twitch Rivals Apex Legends Challenge.

In a Twitlonger announcing his return on January 18, dizzy said he was ready to get back to streaming and would be playing mostly Valorant this time around instead of Apex. Meadows also revealed that the passing of well-known WoW streamer and good friend Byron ‘reckful’ Bernstein in July, 2020, was one of the big reasons he took his break.

“I felt like I wasn’t performing and felt like I just let everyone down with my constant breaks and inconsistent play. I felt I had just burnt myself out,” the streamer said in a Twitlonger. “Around the time of Byron’s passing I was thinking about him the night before and waking up the next morning to the news, I was heartbroken. I fell into a depressed state and just needed some time to myself. I needed a hiatus for my mental health.”

“I’ve been slowly recovering and I feel like I’m ready to come back to streaming and plan on playing mainly Valorant,” dizzy continued. “I’ve also decided I’m going to start streaming on Monday, Wednesday, and Fridays. I look forward to being back. I missed you guys.”

If you want to catch dizzy in person, head over to his Twitch channel at 4 PM EST on Monday, January 18, where he’ll be streaming for the first time in over half a year, and welcome him back.

The loss of Reckful was definitely a hard time, not just for the WoW community but for Twitch as whole, and just add on the kind of year that 2020 seemed to be for everyone else, and we can understand why dizzy took some time off. It’s good to have him back though, and we can’t wait to see him pick up where he left off.
