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.

Content creator and influencer Trisha Paytas has called out YouTuber Shane Dawson and his fiance Ryland Adams for not “taking accountability” for their actions following her revelations about Jeffree Star and HairbyJay last week. 

In a series of TikToks, Paytas insists that it is unfair that the two are able to just go about their lives without taking accountability for their actions.

She said: “They never  have to take accountability for anything. They don’t learn, they don’t get it. They’ll have an apology, throw therapy in there, but they don’t change. And it’s not okay.”

“The amount of trauma and trust issues I have from this are far greater than anything any ex-boyfriend or daddy issues could give me,” she continued. “This is someone I’ve never lied to and never said one bad word about for twelve years.”

Paytas added: “I find out every day, more and more nasty s**t he said about me.”

“It just goes to show what horrible human beings they are. They think that if they don’t address stuff, it just goes away,” she said.  “And that is the truth, because a lot of people won’t have to take accountability for their actions and for being a s**tty person because the internet forgets stuff and the drama moves on.”

Paytas also dubbed Dawson’s fiance Adams a “weasel,” saying that he “couldn’t wait to talk about it” because “he was so happy to have a little bit of spotlight on him.”

She also called out Shane in a TikTok pointedly titled: “Signs you’re in a toxic friendship (but don’t wait twelve years to end it).”

Some of the “signs” she mentioned include: “says they won’t support you publicly because it gives them anxiety (but does it for other people),” “stops showing up in-person for any important events,” “they only call you when their other friendships aren’t working out,” “they trigger you on purpose to go off on people on their behalf,” “tries to convince you to ‘move on’ from trauma that makes them look bad” and “tells you they ‘don’t want to believe what you’re saying’ when you’re opening up to them.”

Shane and Ryland are yet to comment publicly on the situation.
