It’s Time We Address This: What Happened To Wiggy?

Every week I get a few odd comments asking where Wiggy has gone. The honest truth is that she’s gone nowhere. When Wiggy and I first started this channel, we started it with the sole intention of doing 1-hr long “first impressions” gameplay videos. After 6 months, I came to the realization that that was not the direction I wanted to take the channel and thus we moved to more edited gameplay videos, cutting down to approximately 5-10 minute long highlights of our recording sessions, and we decided to tackle a variety of those games over again. A year later, or about 18 months after the channel began, I came to the realization that I just wasn’t enjoying creating content in that form any longer. Sometimes nothing exciting happened. Sometimes the game was bad. But I didn’t want to play through an hour or two of an MMO and then claim “this game is/is not good” or base an entire game off of a such a short play-through anymore, and thus adopted a brand new style of video, and that’s what you see today. Now, I talk about MMOs I want to talk about. Now I cover news in “Weekly Byte of MMORPG News” videos. Now I react to RPG games I’m looking forward to. Anything I want to do, I do.

But with this new direction, Wiggy was left knowing only how to do those cut-up highlight videos. These videos no longer had a place on the channel, though, and Wiggy tried, and ultimately failed to acclimate to the new change in direction. This all came at a very interesting time as I had just moved from Australia (with Wiggy living with me at the time,) over to North America and Wiggy was forced to move in with our mother. Shortly after, Wiggy went on to meet a guy from Malaysia whom she, at the time, played games with to pass the day. After months of dating online, he moved from Malaysia to Australia, and the two of them now live with my mother indefinitely.

This was, and still is quite a large change for both of us and even though I left Wiggy the option of continuing to work on the channel with me (if she learns to adapt to the new channel direction,) she opted to instead create and maintain her own Youtube channel, “Wiggy the Heroic.” She did this for a few months, but gave up shortly after as she had no motivation to pursue, or continue to pursue Youtube any longer.

Wiggy is always welcome, and will always be welcome to return to MMOByte if and when she wants. Will she? Unfortunately, that is highly unlikely. Will she be missed? Of course.

In the meantime, to avoid confusion, the reason I moved to North America was because I met Mrs Stix, who has been my wife for 2 years now. Mrs Stix and Wiggy are two very different people, and Mrs Stix has been working with me on both MMOByte and MMOByte Mobile for over a year now while Wiggy has been absent, and will likely remain my sole partner henceforth.

Hopefully that puts any and all speculation to rest regarding Wiggy’s departure. What does she plan on doing in the future? I can’t say. She no longer really remains in contact with us but I truly wish her all the best with whatever she ends up doing regardless. She is my kid sister, after all.

    I sort of figured something like this has happened, but content creation only works when the creator(s) know what they want to do and have the motivation to do it. If you are forcing yourself to do something you don’t enjoy you’re a burden to both yourself and those you work with so it’s best to do something you enjoy, even if it’s something else.

    Although I find it unfortunate that she wasn’t able to adapt to the changes, it would’ve been better with her around, although I follow this channel from only a few months and don’t remember much of it from years ago, it’s usually when there are more people – the more, the merrier.

      Right! Wiggy was happy doing gameplay, but once we grew beyond a certain point and gameplay was no longer what people wanted, she unfortunately lost the will to make content. Partly because she couldn’t, and partly because she just wasn’t motivated to.

    “But with this new direction, Wiggy was left knowing only how to do those cut-up highlight videos. These videos no longer had a place on the channel, though, and Wiggy tried, and ultimately failed to acclimate to the new change in direction.”
    So instead of dual hosting with a Wiggy playlist, it was the Styx way or the highway. No wonder she lost motivation and left Youtube.

    I hope your relationship with your sister is better than your statement implies. Either way, wishing you all the best.

      Wiggy’s old cut-up gameplay videos averaged 5,000-10,000 views and had a dislike ratio of 30-50% on average.
      The new style of videos average 20,000-100,000 views and have a like ratio of 90-95% on average.
      Thus I adopted the new direction for the channel – it’s what the vast majority of our viewers wanted. Wiggy tried, but she didn’t know how to research topics instead just reading through an announcement posted somewhere and claiming it was fact. This landed us in hot water on various occasions!

      As for our relationship, honestly after she entered a relationship with her new boyfriend she ceased really talking to me. As you can tell by her personal channel (that she gave up on 6 months ago,) this is a commonly reoccurring theme with her.

    Well, I’m glad I saw this, I must admit I was very, very confused, back when Wiggy was part of the channel I really hadn’t watched much, mostly just skimming through the video watching some gameplay footage,and as such I had honestly had no idea sh was you’re sister. I honestly just assumed you where dating or something, without giving it much thought. Then when I started watching again a little over a year ago heard some videos about “Mrs styx” so I just thought oh there married now thats cool. Then I saw here in one of you’re vids and I was like…!? That is not the same woman. This makes more sense now though. Sorry to here she hasn’t really remanded in touch. Would be cool for her to at least join you’re twitch streams.

      We’ve tried asking her to join us for Twitch streams but she’s too busy playing video games with her boyfriend that lives with her now and doesn’t really seem to show much, if any interest in this unfortunately. And don’t worry, a lot of people thought Wiggy and I were married or dating. But the thought of it still grosses me out! lmao

    To be honest, from your statement and comments. You kinda come across like a passive aggressive jerk.

    Just dont put your self in a situation where u have to choose your siblings or your wife. It will happen, and it can be avoided.
