Popular Twitch streamer, Michael ‘ Apex Legends also saw the rise of a young star, Coby ‘dizzy’ Meadows, who many recognized as the best player in the game.

Dizzy later signed with NRG Esports, shortly after he broke the World record for kills, however, his streams have since become less frequent, which some assumed was due to him practicing for the Apex Legends FACEIT Pro Series which began on May 31.

Dizzy / TwitchDizzy previously held the Apex Legends solo world record with 33 kills.

One of Twitch’s most popular streamers, shroud, brought up how good dizzy in terms of mechanic skill, mentioning particularly the new first person shooter, Battalion 1944. Having seen dizzy’s skills transfer to Apex Legends. “I hope dizzy plays this game again, he was insane and it was fun to watch,” shroud explained.

Shroud also noted dizzy’s absence from the livestreaming platform in recent times, saying, “I don’t know what he’s doing, this dude hasn’t played a game in years it feels like. He probably is playing, he’s just not streaming, which is still strange.”

Shroud then explained what he would be doing if he was in Dizzy’s situation to take advantage of his previous success, saying “If I was him I would be streaming all day, everyday. He’s in a prime fucking position.”

Finding that dizzy was in fact live on Twitch, competing in the first week of the the FACEIT Pro series shroud exclaimed “Is he streaming right now? Hell yeah!”

Dizzy is currently sat in 2nd place of the FACEIT Pro series alongside his team NRG Esports after a strong week 1 showing and is likely to keep streaming every weekend for the Apex Legends league.

Shroud has always been a fan of dizzy, and is encouraging him focus his efforts on growing his channel more, having already proved that he is incredibly skilled and that viewers will gravitate towards him.

In many ways, shroud and dizzy are very similar, both incredibly skilled, letting their gameplay do the talking, while they remain rather laid back in their demeanour.

Just Chatting streamer ‘Novaruu’ has been hit with the ban hammer a second time by Twitch, but the cause behind it is not quite clear.

Novaruu is a popular personality on Twitch’s ever-growing Just Chatting category, but she’s currently unable to stream after the platform banned her channel on Oct. 19.

It’s her second time being banned from the platform, after running afoul of a little-known Twitch rule back in 2019. That suspension only lasted for three days – the same amount of time as her latest one, as well.

“Everyone is asking me why I was banned on Twitch and I really dont know,” Novaruu wrote on Twitter. “Thankfully, it’s only 3 days.”

As we mentioned, the Texan streamer has been banned for the same amount of time from Twitch before in December of 2019 – bizarrely enough for “operating a contest or giveaway that violates Twitch Terms of Service,” according to the site, because she raffled off hand-painted birdhouses.

“How does raffling off a birdhouse and nudity have the same [ban length]?” She questioned back in 2019 comparing her situation to other streamers – but now, there’s no clear cut reason why she’s locked out.

Novaruu is a popular streamer who can usually be found in Twitch’s Just Chatting section.

After streaming Phasmophobia and chatting with viewers the night before, her channel disappeared from Twitch on the morning of Oct. 19 with the ban officially announced soon after.

While Nova was caught off-guard, her fans seemed confused as well, with many commenting that there didn’t seem to have been anything shown during her recent streams that would land her in hot water with the site.

Streaming on Twitch in the Just Chatting category to around 1,000 viewers every day, she’s also a partner, with around 100,000 followers on the platform and 54,000 followers on Twitter. She’ll most likely return to Twitch after her three-day suspension is completed on Oct. 22, or earlier if she appeals and is successful.
