Early Life and Streaming Beginnings
There is almost no information regarding Taymoo’s life before her rise to fame online, as she hasn’t shared details regarding her family, childhood, and education. It is known that she developed a strong interest towards gaming at a young age, playing since her childhood, growing up in Washington State, and eventually discovered the potential for a possible career through streaming on the website Twitch.
Twitch is a live streaming platform, and is a subsidiary of Amazon. The website was created in 2011 and was intended to be a spin-off from the general interest streaming platform Justin. Twitch focused more on video game live streaming, and soon became highly popular, overtaking its predecessor in terms of traffic. It has become the main hub of eSports competition broadcasts, and Justin was later shut down to put more focus on Twitch. As of 2019, the website has over 2.5 million broadcasters a month, and over 15 million using the website actively on a daily basis.
Taymoo established herself on Twitch by regularly streaming the video game “World of Warcraft” (WoW). WoW is a massively multiplayer online role playing game (MMORPG) which was released in 2004 by Blizzard Entertainment. It is the fourth game set in the “Warcraft” universe and is set four years after the events of “Warcraft III: The Frozen Throne”. Over the years, the game has released seven major expansion packs, including “The Burning Crusade”, “Mists of Pandaria”, “Battle for Azeroth”, and “Wrath of the Lich King”. The game was at one point the world’s most popular MMORPG by player count, and in 2014 reported having over 100 million registered accounts. It is one of the highest grossing video game franchises of all time, with over $9.23 billion in revenue.
Another game that Taymoo became known for is “Counter-Strike: Global Offensive” (CS:GO), a multiplayer first-person shooter and the fourth game of the “Counter-Strike” series, released in 2012. The game has players join either of two teams, terrorists and counter-terrorists. The teams try to eliminate the opponents, while also completing other objectives depending on the game mode or map. In 2018, the game introduced a battle royale mode called Danger Zone, which has received a lot of positive reviews for its gameplay and faithfulness to its predecessors. The game recently transitioned to the free to play model. It also has an active competitive scene, and consistently has over 11 million players a month.
In late-2018, Taymoo decided to stop streaming altogether, and was absent for a few months from the online world, and it wasn’t until early-2019 that she started communicating with fans once more. She mentioned that she had not been streaming due to losing interest in the games she played. She has also apologized for her sudden disappearance and promised that she would be streaming soon, but was worried about streaming after being inactive for many months. She recently streamed in August 2019, her first stream of the year and received a lot of support from her fans as she just chatted with them.
One of the reasons for her sudden disappearance was to focus on her work with the company Arbonne International, a multi-level marketing company based in Irvine, California. They specialize in the manufacture and distribution of skincare products and health products.
