100 Thieves CEO Matt ‘Nadeshot’ Haag has revealed why he decided to leave his apartment and move into the team’s content house.

Nadeshot, who became a star as part of OpTic Gaming’s Call of Duty team, now heads up his own esports organization in 100 Thieves, who are also involved in apparel and content creation.

Throughout much of 2018, Nadeshot hinted that the organization would be investing in a house for their content team, from which creators and streamers under the 100 Thieves brand could create.

Nadeshot is living in the content house alongside Twitch streamer Valkyrae.

The 100 Thieves content house was officially unveiled in January 2019, and Haag revealed that he would be living in it alongside Twitch streamer Rachel ‘Valkyrae’ Hofsetter. While many were surprised that Nadeshot was leaving his apartment to move into the content house, he revealed the reasons behind the move in a recent interview with Travis Gafford.

“Before I moved out to Los Angeles, I was living in a house with OpTic Gaming and I lived there for around three years,” Haag told Gafford. “It was one of the best opportunities for me as an individual to collaborate with other people but also to learn a lot about myself.

“I very much consider myself to still be a content creator – when I do upload to YouTube my videos still do pretty well. Last year was very much a foundational year for 100 Thieves, but now we have a lot of teams, so a lot of the time I was spending on things last year won’t be there, I won’t be as jam-packed throughout my day so I can get back to streaming and making more videos.”

While Nadeshot and Valkyrae are currently the only two inhabitants of the 100 Thieves content house, the organization has already begun to search for some more creators who could move in to the Los Angeles home.

100 Thieves have asked fans to suggest streamers or YouTubers who they think would be a good fit for the organization, with the hope that Haag and Hofsetter will soon have two new roommates.


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.

Hamlinz was once one of the most popular streamers alongside Shroud and Ninja.

Hamlinz is back and feeling like his old self again

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.
