Daequan Blames Himself For What Went Wrong With NRG

Daequan has returned to Twitch once again after disappearing from the radar for 113 days. However, it wasn't just for any old reason, as the streamer shared just exactly what went wrong with NRG. 

Daequan "Daequan" Loco and his pal Darryle "Hamlinz" Hamlin gained a huge following thanks to their Fortnite success in 2018 and 2019.  However, the pair have managed to pull off a fair few vanishing acts in their time, almost disappearing entirely from streaming in 2020. Then, boom. 2021 arrives and so returned Daequan and Hamlinz, announcing that they had signed with the esports organisation NRG and showed-off their flashy new content mansion, Thoom House. Then, silence, again. 

Daequan did make a rare appearance back in September 2021 and explained that he was battling health issues which affected him streaming on Twitch. Now, the 27-year-old has reappeared once again to explain what exactly happened with NRG and where it all went wrong.

What Caused NRG's Collapse?

Daequan and Hamlinz fans were devastated to learn that after only a few weeks of it opening, the Thoom House had disappeared, with no word from either of the duo as to exactly what had happened. It turns out that while the glorious mansion may have looked spectacular, it had one flaw which would prove fatal for NRG, and it's one we can all relate to - bad internet connection. 

Daequan revealed all during a stream on January 24, in which he explained: "We go to this house, they tell NRG and us that the internet's nuts, 'the internet's great, this is a smart house', whatever whatever. Long story short, when we get there, it's not that. We did not have fibre at all, it was DSL." He explained that the house's internet room had wires and tech "in there I had not seen in like fifteen years. Honestly, it was like ancient relics in that thing."

Why Does Daequan Blame Himself For The Collapse Of NRG?

Following his revelation, Daequan was quick to say that he has "no beef" with NRG or anyone from the Californian esports organisation. However, he admitted he wasn't entirely sure if he was still signed with NRG or whether he is a free agent again. Yet, he stressed: "I have nothing bad to say about them bro, they were dope. All the people I met through the org, they were cool, they were eager to get sh*t going as much as we were. The saddest thing for me is that everything didn't work out. It was unfortunate bro, just so sad, everyone wanted it to work there."

Rather than point the finger at NRG, Daequan explained: "I blame myself. I will always blame myself, because if I blame other people... Look at League of Legends. If I'm gold, and I blame my teammates 24/7 I'm going to be gold forever, bro!"

So, will Daequan be disappearing again soon? Well, not according to him as the streamer declared that he has officially returned to Twitch and wants to get things back on track. He admitted he's been "really dogsh*t at communicating" in the past, but this was something he wanted to work on. Right now, he is "focusing on getting everything back to how it was. I want to stream, make YouTube videos. Get back into that groove, make it my routine again." Hopefully, it won't be too long again until Hamlinz returns from the shadows again.
