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.

TSM Hamlinz finally breaks Twitter silence after four-months away

Hamlinz has been missing in action for quite some time, but the beloved Fortnite streamer has finally broken his silence on Twitter on Oct. 25, and let the world know he is back and feeling good.

Darryle ‘Hamlinz’ Hamlin was once a pillar in the streaming world. He shot to fame while streaming Fortnite during its peak, and his popularity rose even more after he joined Team Solo Mid.

However, the beloved streamer has been on the down-low for several months now; in fact, he has been silent on social media for most of the year. 

Hamlinz tweeted every now and then between January and March, and even streamed a couple of times. But he was far less active than he used to be, and hadn’t posted at all since July.

Many speculated he might have been on another hiatus. The first one happened when he needed some time off to deal with a nasty cyst. The second one happened not long after when he needed some time to deal with personal issues.

Thankfully, he bounced back on both those occasions, and it seems like he’s bounced back once again. The full extent of what happened this time around remains unclear. However, the most important thing is that Hamlinz has finally broken his silence on social media.

“Feeling like my old self again,” he wrote. It’s a little more than one hour old, but the tweet has already amassed 50,000 likes, 6,5000 retweets, and 6,000 comments.

The hype is real, and for a good reason. Hamlinz is one of the most entertaining, likable, and talented streamers in the world. Plus, it’s always nice to see people recover from whatever issues they’re facing and get back on their own two feet.

The comments are filled with people happy to see him back. “Finally something good in 2020,” wrote one fan. “Hamlinz is BACK BABY,” wrote another.

Sadly, Hamlinz has remained tight-lipped on whether he will stream again anytime soon. However, considering he is feeling like his old self again, it could mean that a stream might not be too far away.

Either way, there’s no doubt that it will be a momentous occasion. If the excitement in the comments is anything to go by, the floodgates will open and his fans, followers, and viewers will come pouring in.

Hamlinz has more than five million followers across Twitch, Twitter, and Youtube. It seems all the time off hasn’t dampened his popularity in the slightest.
