Twitch streamer World of Warcraft Classic, perhaps more than anyone, but some fans are upset with the way he played it and say he “failed” the game.

WoW Classic has taken over Twitch since its launch on August 26 with many large streamers grinding the game and reliving their childhood.

We’ve already seen our first Level 60 and the dreaded Molten Core toppled, but WoW’s biggest streamer Asmongold wasn’t the first to do either of these. In fact, his playstyle has left a sour taste in the mouths of many fans.

BlizzardWoW Classic has arrived.

lengthy Reddit post, which has received over 15,000 upvotes along with three Platinums, 10 Golds, and 16 Silvers, made by user Eurothemist called out Asmon’s playstyle, saying he relied too much on his chat for help, among numerous other things.

“You asked for legacy servers for years but when they came around you just weren’t strong enough to do it without begging for gold and items.”

WoW Classic is known for its grind as it’s missing numerous quality of life changes such as a dungeon finder, quest markers, easy access to mounts and many more.

When you find ways around all that, it defeats the point of Classic in the eyes of many players.

“You failed Classic, you failed your fans, but most of all, you failed yourself,” wrote Eurothemist. “We thought more highly of you. You’re disappointing.”

Once Asmongold caught wind of this thread, he responded to it on stream, questioning how Reddit allows posts like this.

“I’m amazed, honestly more than anything, just like a perspective, the mods let people just like make hate threads about somebody else and just leave it the whole time,” he said. “You know, that seems crazy, I don’t know, I feel like that’s against Reddit’s base site rules.”

It’s worth noting that not every player out there has any strong feelings for or against Asmongold. In fact, some don’t have feelings towards any streamer. “Play the game stop watching streamers lmao,” wrote user dotabtw.

It’s no secret that Asmongold is a titan in the World of Warcraft community, as he managed to put together the first major PvP event of Classic.

Despite his massive fanbase, it’s clear that he has rubbed some players the wrong way based on how he handled the return of Classic. With that said, it doesn’t seem like this post has hurt his viewership on Twitch in the slightest.


David Dobrik spooked after drone leaves “creepy” note at his home

Yet again, something bizarre has been dropped off at YouTuber David Dobrik’s house, this time a bag of Chipotle along with a slightly unnerving note flown into his backyard via drone.

David Dobrik has accumulated an enormous fan base on YouTube both as part of the Vlog Squad and as an independent creator. With 18.5 million subscribers, and 23.5 million followers on TikTok, he’s certainly not short of people who love his content and personality.

However, being an online personality of such a large scale comes with its lack of privacy, and that exposure to the world in turn has some bizarre side effects, as David has experienced before.

Earlier in October, the content creator was stunned to find that someone had left an actual kitten on his doorstep in a duffel bag. CCTV footage captured a mysterious stranger placing the bag at his door, but their identity could not be determined.

Clearly that incident has inspired others to try their luck at delivering something to his house without direct consent.

Mysterious drone arrives for David Dobrik

In a video uploaded to his TikTok account, David showed a small drone placing a paper bag of Chipotle in his backyard. “Bro, this is so scary. Someone f**king flew Chipotle on a drone into my backyard, I’m not f**king kidding. What if it’s a f**king bomb, what do I do?”

Also attached to the machine was a little green bag, which when opened revealed some other items along with a small orange handwritten note.

The note stated “you probably do not know who we are. But soon, the name Project better will be much more familiar. Thank you for being awesome, see you soon.”

The letter was definitely a little bit strange.

The mysterious group went on to say that “if you want to film it we’ll be at the nearest Chipotle on riverside with one picture on it. PS: the sauce is half-full because it was too heavy. Enjoy.”

While the incident appears to be relatively well-intentioned, it clearly freaked David and his friends out. The mysterious note referring to a group that will soon be “familiar” to him is certainly eerie, as is the ease at which it was able to access his yard.

It’s not yet clear whether David will really end up meeting the senders of the drone, or even if he ate the food it brought, but people certainly found it interesting as the video now has over 600,000 likes and 2.6 million views.
