We’re halfway through February and we can’t believe how time flies this month! There is no shortage of recent news and updates in the online world. If anything, you may have lost track of important news on your favorite stars.
From game updates to a streamer deciding to hit pause on her booming Twitch career, here’s what you may have missed in the past week:
Korean Twitch streamer HAchubby burst in tears as she explained her decision to stream less on the platform.
She announced it on her February 12 broadcast, further explaining the reason why she’d be taking a step back from streaming on Twitch – she has plans of studying English to improve her conversation skills.
This doesn’t mean fans won’t get to see HAchubby on Twitch ever again, though. She clarified that she will stick to a once or twice a week stream schedule for now.
The decision to focus on learning English came fresh off her return from a recent USA trip. During her visit, she collaborated with other Twitch names such as Pokimane, Lilypichu, and the rest of the OfflineTV crew.
Fans continue to speculate if this move only confirms the rumors that she’s going to join the OfflineTV gang.
100 Thieves star Valkyrae decided to leave the new 100T LA content house, revealing she needs to change things in her life since the past few months have been rather hectic and stressful.
The state of the art facility is dubbed as “the best gaming facility in the world” with a 35M USD price tag, but Valkyrae skipped on the chance to live in the new hub.
This doesn’t mean the streamer is taking a step back from being a 100T member. Instead, she only wants to prioritize her personal “health and wellness” by finally moving into her own place.
She admits she had been struggling to balance her health and wellness to live in the same area where she works.

Seems like Youtube Gaming is gearing up to keep up with Twitch!
Ryan ‘Fwiz’ Wyatt, the head of YouTube Gaming, hinted upcoming updates to the live streaming platform on Twitter. Some of these updates reflect features that are currently synonymous with Twitch: such as the addition of both viewership in-game rewards and the “clips” feature.
These could improve and boost YouTube’s appeal more, after having successfully signed big ex-Twitch names such as CouRage, Valkyrae, and LazarBeam.

There’s also the idea of “a new generation across platforms”, sparking theories about what systems would TS5 land on.
But at this point, it can be confirmed how The Sims 5 is still in the conceptual, pre-production phase.
