100 Thieves stream star BrookeAB, who last went live on Twitch all the way back on July 1, has broken her social media silence to explain her disappearance. She admitted to fans she is “working through something incredibly painful” during her hiatus.

The 21-year-old has been strangely silent on social media and her streaming platforms in the past month. On Wednesday, July 1 she went live for a sponsored playthrough of The Walking Dead: A New Frontier, and hasn’t streamed since.

The 100 Thieves streamer is usually relatively active on social media too, regularly posting on Twitter and Instagram. That too had dried up in the past fortnight or so, however, until she shared an update with her fans on August 2.

“First and foremost, I want to take a moment to thank everyone for the outpouring of support during my break; it means more than you’ll ever know,” she said. “I’m not able to share details just yet, [but] I’ve been working through something incredibly painful and frightening on a personal level.”

The streaming star added she would share what had happened “when the time is right,” and was eager to eventually tell her Twitch and 100 Thieves fans so they could “continue to grow, and build a healthy, supportive community together.”

BrookeAB also urged her fans to “occasionally disconnect from online and our devices” to “spend time with family and loved ones”. Her suggestion seems to point to something in her personal life she had to resolve, but we’re sure she’ll update fans on that in good time.

“Most importantly,” she added in her surprise August 2 update, “if you or someone you know is struggling with mental health issues, immediately speak to a parent, counselor, or loved one and ask for help.”

The 100T streaming star may not have confirmed exactly what the reason was for her shock disappearance early last month, but she did hand out some good news for her fans; she’ll be back streaming very soon.

She wrote, “I’ll share more in the future, but thank you again for the support. I’m excited to get back to streaming!”. The Twitch star has not yet confirmed when she will be going to go live again. It sounds like it should be pretty soon, however.

In the meantime, if you want to get your 100 Thieves streaming fix, new org signing Neekolul has been regularly going live. Nicole, 23, shot to online stardom after her ‘OK Boomer’ TikTok went viral; she signed with 100T on July 10.

Logan Paul mindblown after pulling rare Pokemon cards worth $3000

Logan Paul has become an avid Pokemon card collector throughout the latter half of 2020, and treated fans of his Impaulsive podcast to watch him open a rare pack, the contents of which he was delighted with.

The Pokemon Trading Card Game originally got going in 1999 and now, over two decades later, is worth more than ever, with rare cards making sellers hundreds of thousands of dollars if they’ve kept their collection in good condition.

He recently revealed some of the collection he had been building up, including a first edition shadowless Charizard that could fetch anywhere between $40,000 to $60,000 at auction.

Letting his fans into the hobby, Logan opted to buy a pack of Base Set trading cards for $500 online and opened it live on Impaulsive.

Obviously, when you’re spending $500 on a single pack of cards, you’ve got to be pretty hopeful of the results, but Paul insisted he always gets his rarest cards from the seller he bought it from.

So, he opened them and revealed each card one-by-one, including a Squirtle which he expects to fetch around $200-300, perhaps more as he believes it to have a PSA grade of 10 — or, the best condition it could possibly be.

Alongside the regular Energy cards and some more Pokemon such as Gastly and Poliwhirl, Paul also packed a Blastoise, again expecting it to be PSA graded 10/10, which he says should fetch around $2500 — meaning the total value of the individual cards could fetch around $3000 if his valuations are correct.

Obviously, the valuations may be slightly off, but Logan has at least made his money back for this pack — and if he’s made a profit then more power to him.

There’s some serious money to be made in the Pokemon Trading Card Game now, especially as it enjoys somewhat of a resurgence of late, so it might be worth digging out those old cards and see what you’ve got laying around: you never know how much money you could be sitting on.
