Fortnite became the biggest game in the world largely because of the enormous amount of content creators who played and promoted it. In return, these creators and streamers also gained millions of followers. These include Ninja, SypherPK, Nickmercs, Tfue, and many others.

A prominent Twitch streamer who was once part of this list is TSM Daequan. He was arguably the best Fortnite player in the world a few years ago, and accordingly, had over 3.8 million followers on Twitch. However, the streamer suddenly disappeared from not only Twitch but social media platforms such as Twitter.

Apparently, Daequan and his girlfriend have been going through a series of mental and physical problems since last year. The former hasn’t been able to stream owing to it but fans around the world still await his return eagerly.

Daequan’s fellow TSM member, Hamlinz, has also taken an abrupt break from streaming. He went live for the last time in 2020, and over a million of his supporters have been worried about him ever since.

Ninja is looking forward to the return of TSM Daequan and Hamlinz

It is self-evident that TSM Daequan and Hamlinz are currently resolving issues that are much more important than their streaming channels.

Ninja, being a popular creator himself, realizes that both Daequan and Hamlinz were making a fortune when they quit. Hence, he believes they have been working on improving their lives in the breaks, and will make a big return soon.

“So, it’s technically a good thing that they’re not back yet, right? Which means they’re continuing to work on themselves and the things in their lives. And when they do return, it’ll be the most glorious thing ever.”

Ninja further added that he’ll be watching Daequan and Hamlinz’s streams himself. However, there’s a possibility that the trio won’t play together, because both the veterans will certainly avoid collaborations right after their returns. Instead, they might just play some solos and interact with their audience.

Will TSM Daequan and Hamlinz ever return?

Even though the rumors of the return of TSM Daequan and Hamlinz have been floating around for a long time, we haven’t really seen an official update on the same. As a result, many fans have now quit the hope to ever see the streamers on Twitch and YouTube again.

In contrast, Ninja is sure that TSM Daequan and Hamlinz will return in the near future. He believes that streaming has been such a huge part of their lives, that it is unlikely they will now change professions.

“They will return. Of course, they will. Of course, they’ll return dude, I don’t expect Daequan working a nine to five job dude,” claimed Ninja.
