We all know that top streamers make a lot of money, but World of Warcraft personality Asmongold has revealed the true extent of it, telling viewers the insane amount he has been offered to stream a game for a single day.

The biggest streamers across platforms such as Twitch and YouTube are no strangers to sponsored streams, with game developers offering them payment for playing their game, advertising it to fans and hoping to drive a bunch of engagement as a result.

It’s been a failsafe way for devs to get eyes on their games, and we’ve seen some super-popular games benefit from partnered Twitch streams.

That said, we don’t often know how much these streamers get paid, but Asmon has given us a little hint by revealing the ludicrous amounts he has been offered.

Asmongold offered $300K for one stream

Although he didn’t specify what the game was, Asmon was talking to his viewers about Twitch streams and ‘bounties’, which is where Twitch finds sponsorship opportunities for its partnered streamers to make some money.

After saying that he’ll likely take on more bounties and do more sponsored streams in the future, he deliberated over whether to reveal how much he had been offered for one particular stream — and finally decided to do it.

“I was offered — I’m not going to say what game it is — over $300,000 to play the game for one day.”

When a viewer asked if Asmon had accepted it, he said that he “told them maybe,” and that he “might still do it” — suggesting he could be taking on this $300k one-day stream soon.

This isn’t the first time Asmongold has been candid about the type of money he’s been offered for streams, revealing earlier in 2020 that he had also been offered over $200,000 for a sponsored stream.

These two instances are among the very few that we actually know about, and fans can only imagine how many other big-money opportunities have been presented to Asmon as well as other top streamers such as Ninja, xQc, Dr Disrespect and more.

Now, if we see Asmongold stepping out of his wheelhouse more often, we know exactly why.

World of Warcraft Shadowlands finally arrived on November 23 and while one Twitch streamer drove home far too fast to load it up with friends, the Police officer who stopped them completely understood. 

As many members of the community will know, the game’s latest expansion will bring together loads of new and returning players for an all-new story. There’s Covenants to mess around with, new quests to try out, and many will have been rushing home to play it after work.

Though, speeding is against the highway code and by driving too fast you are putting others in danger – which meant one streamer was unfortunately told to pull over by the Cops.

Usually, this would lead to a speeding ticket, but after explaining their reason for going too fast – to get home and throw Shadowlands on – the officer came in clutch and decided to turn a blind eye in what was quite a remarkable story.

Shadowlands is finally here and some are getting a bit to exicted.

Shadowlands saves Twitch streamer a speeding ticket

On release day, streamer bbnogames was already playing Shadowlands when his friend called, who presumably also streams with him.

They said: “Bro, hahaha. The Cop was like ‘yo, you know how fast you were going?’ I’m like dude I’m so sorry, this game is dropping soon, all my friends are waiting for me.

“He’s like ‘Shadowlands?’ And I’m like yeah, and he’s like OK go!”

 

After that, he said he was just five minutes away and eventually joined the team playing online. After that remarkable exchange with the Police officer, things went without a hitch, when really he could have been left with a hefty ticket to pay for his troubles.

Instead, they were able to link up together later in the night and jump into World of Warcraft’s latest expansion. Maybe next time, he won’t be so lucky.
