Asmongold, immensely popular Twitch streamer and World of Warcraft veteran, has explained why he won’t be streaming ahead of the launch of the highly anticipated WoW Classic AQ launch, coming on Monday, August 10. 

World of Warcraft Classic, a server option from the immensely popular World of Warcraft, has enabled players to delve into a “faithful recreation” of the game’s state prior to The Burning Crusade expansion.

Streamers, like Asmongold, have relished the opportunity to hop back into their favorite MMORPG. However, fans of the American will have to wait for his next stream, as he explained in a video uploaded to Twitter on August 7.

WoW Classic has been loved by fans of Blizzard Entertainment’s MMORPG.

In the video, Asmongold explained that he won’t be online on either Saturday or Sunday – the 8th and 9th of August respectively. The reasons for his absence were outlined, with the streamer describing the previous 24 hours as the “most painful” of his life.

“My teeth, as you can see – I did not gain 100 pounds,” he said. “My jaw is swollen. I don’t know if it’s an infection or just swelling or what, but I just got back from the dentist a little bit ago, and seems like they can’t pull the teeth out until the swelling goes down.”

“So I’m on antibiotics and some other sh*t,” he continued. “So I’m gonna have to deal with that for the next couple of days and I just need to take it easy and let this kind of settle.”

He finished by explaining that he’ll be playing Minecraft in a week or so. He also said that he hopes to be able to do the World of Warcraft Classic AQ on Monday, August 10, but a lot will depend on how he fares over the weekend. However, he did caveat this with “no promises”, so it seems like it’s still up in the air whether he’ll be able to stream.

Logan Paul mindblown after pulling rare Pokemon cards worth $3000

Logan Paul has become an avid Pokemon card collector throughout the latter half of 2020, and treated fans of his Impaulsive podcast to watch him open a rare pack, the contents of which he was delighted with.

The Pokemon Trading Card Game originally got going in 1999 and now, over two decades later, is worth more than ever, with rare cards making sellers hundreds of thousands of dollars if they’ve kept their collection in good condition.

He recently revealed some of the collection he had been building up, including a first edition shadowless Charizard that could fetch anywhere between $40,000 to $60,000 at auction.

Letting his fans into the hobby, Logan opted to buy a pack of Base Set trading cards for $500 online and opened it live on Impaulsive.

Obviously, when you’re spending $500 on a single pack of cards, you’ve got to be pretty hopeful of the results, but Paul insisted he always gets his rarest cards from the seller he bought it from.

So, he opened them and revealed each card one-by-one, including a Squirtle which he expects to fetch around $200-300, perhaps more as he believes it to have a PSA grade of 10 — or, the best condition it could possibly be.

Alongside the regular Energy cards and some more Pokemon such as Gastly and Poliwhirl, Paul also packed a Blastoise, again expecting it to be PSA graded 10/10, which he says should fetch around $2500 — meaning the total value of the individual cards could fetch around $3000 if his valuations are correct.

Obviously, the valuations may be slightly off, but Logan has at least made his money back for this pack — and if he’s made a profit then more power to him.

There’s some serious money to be made in the Pokemon Trading Card Game now, especially as it enjoys somewhat of a resurgence of late, so it might be worth digging out those old cards and see what you’ve got laying around: you never know how much money you could be sitting on.
