NRG Thoom House, a $7 million channel and content house featuring streamers Daequan and Hamlinz, has shut down, according to Hamlinz. After a two-month hiatus from streaming, today, the streamer confirmed that Thoom House has ended and shared some insight into why.
Hamlinz explain his sudden disappearance from social media on Twitter earlier today. Referring to his mental health issues as part of the reason why he was absent, Hamlinz said he would create an alternative streaming account so he could continue to create content without pressure as before. Backed by both fellow streamers and fans, Hamlinz’s first broadcast on his new account explains why House Thoom ultimately failed.
“There are many reasons why there is no longer a Thoom House,” said Hamlinz. “The main reason is that the Internet is crap. Everything is wrong with the house. In addition to logistical issues, Hamlinz also said there were a lot of “disagreements” with NRG, including over editorial and how Hamlinz and Daequan should implement the necessary content.
“That was our idea of the channel, but in the end, it was the NRG channel,” Hamlinz said. “The Thoom House channel is not ours. After Thoom House was gone, that was their channel. Like, we can’t post on that channel anymore if we leave NRG. “
In August 2021, NRG announced the return of Hamlinz and Daequan after a two-year hiatus following their departure from TSM. Thoom House’s comeback has been an initial success, with the official YouTube channel gaining over 500,000 subscribers in its first month. However, despite regular content production for the next two months, the creators went silent again late last year.
While House Thoom is confirmed to be over, it remains unclear whether the duo will remain with NRG.
