When Blizzard dropped the beta stage for their MMORPG game World of Warcraft, Sodapoppin was one of the few people who really got into the game. When it was released officially in 2004, many others joined the fray and began to play the game. By this time, Sodapoppin was slowly making a name for himself. Starting from a small following of 500 on Xfire to millions of followers on his Twitch and YouTube pages, this gamer has shown that good work does indeed pay off. And while he may not be without controversies, there’s still a lot to admire and talk about when it comes to this live-streamer.

How Sodapoppin Started His Gaming Career

Sodapoppin, legally known as Thomas Jefferson Chance Morris IV was born on February 15, 1994, in Austin, Texas. Morris comes from a rather large home, with seven siblings coming before him. He’s not the only one in the streaming business though. His older brother Dustin (DKane), a budding hip-hop artist, is also a streamer who live-streamed himself quitting his job in May 2019.

Sodapoppin excelled in his grades while in high school, and enrolled at the University of Texas after he graduated. As things would go, Morris ended up dropping out of college before he was done. Several fans have speculated that this was done so he could become a full-time gamer. To help drive the point home, he moved to the state of Michigan to begin living in a streaming house for his professional gaming career.

Starting his professional streaming in 2009 on the now-defunct streaming site Xfire, Morris began to stream his gaming sessions on Twitch in 2012. Already a top-ranking World of Warcraft player before his switch, Morris became very successful on Twitch, with over half of the platform’s WoW followers watching him. He eventually switched up his gaming habits, streaming other games on his channel for the benefit of diversity.

His Accomplishments As a Pro Gamer

In October 2017, Sodapoppin experienced a career-high when he was able to eliminate high-profile gamer Dr. DisRespect from the H1Z1 Invitational tournament. He didn’t, however, make it to the top 10. Nevertheless, the victory was a big one for the live streamer.

Besides being an online gamer, Morris is also a businessman. Sodapoppin co-owned Northern Gaming, a Canadian eSports organization. It was later purchased by NRG Esports, a company with Shaquille O’Neal and Alex Rodriguez as owners. Sodapoppin joined NRG, retaining his part-ownership of Northern Gaming.

According to the statistics website SocialBlade, Sodapoppin ranks as the 20th most followed streamer and 12 in view counts for his live streams.

Controversies That Explain Why He Was Banned

As a popular live streamer, it’s impossible to go through your career without hitting a few snags here and there; especially when you become a target for hackers. Sodapoppin has been embroiled in a few controversies over the years, several of which occurred after he lost his account for a while to hackers.

In June 2013, while live-streaming a 24-hour WoW session, Sodapoppin was hacked and had his account spam the in-game chats. After getting logged out, Morris put a call to WoW developer, Blizzard’s customer care to rectify the issue. Streaming the whole call, he was able to secure his account and get back into his account. But all his loot and gear had been taken.

Days after the hacking incident, Sodapoppin was again live-streaming when an admin told him in-game that his account was going to be suspended. Reading an email with details on the ban, Morris attributed the ban to actions the hacker may have taken while in control of the account.

He came face-to-face with another ban after unknowingly sharing an explicit image while he was streaming on Twitch. Sharing images of characters created by the community, Sodapoppin put up a picture of a penis cosplayed as a cowboy without even knowing it. Leaving the image up for a few seconds, he didn’t realize the offending material until he read his chats and saw viewers complain and ask for a ban. It wasn’t until he examined the photo that he realized what had happened. Sodapoppin got a 24-hour ban for the picture.

Does Sodapoppin Have A Girlfriend?

Sodapoppin was in an on-off-relationship with popular Twitch streamer Lea May Currier, better known by her Twitch name as LegendaryLea. While it’s not officially known when the two began dating, they stayed together for a while before they had to split up. They met at a gaming convention in Texas, and from there, things took off. Things began to get shaky after Sodapoppin found out she lived under the same roof with her ex.

Despite the toxic relationship Lea had with her ex, as well as various attempts by Sodapoppin to help her move out of the house, the streamer had to call it quits when Lea refused to completely end things with the ex-lover.

They briefly got back together afterward, but Lea’s indecisiveness and constantly shifty behavior pushed Morris to call it quits again. Baring it all in a live stream, Sodapoppin mentioned that after all was said and done, Lea apologized to him for how things went.
