Popular World of Warcraft expansions.

The popular content creator GrossGore has been known for his highly entertaining twitch streams on games such as League of Legends and World of Warcraft.

With the highly anticipated launch of WoW classic soon to be on its way, GrossGore learned of one of the NPC trolls called “Grozgore” which was added to the game in a previous expansion and claimed that Blizzard had done it in an attempt to mock the popular streamer.

Blizzard EntertainmentBlizzard are set to release World of Warcraft Classic on August 27.

GrossGore responded to Blizzard’s addition to the WoW universe by complaining about the fact they had chosen to use a Troll for the character, with a similar name to his own, and that they also give the NPC a big nose, claiming that it was done on purpose to mock his nose.

“Guess what it is? It’s a troll, not a humanoid, a fucking troll!” GrossGore said, before detailing the NPC “This troll has a big fucking nose, a massive crooked fucking nose, huh sounds familiar, well guess what I used to have a big nose and it used to be really bent as well just like the NPC.”

The streamer was not impressed by Blizzard’s choice in naming their new character expressing that they could’ve chosen another name for the troll, “They could’ve picked any fucking name or word in the world and guess what they called it? Grozgore! Yeah, I’m not fucking joking.”

Gross Gore then asked for Blizzard to make changes to the in-game NPC, claiming that it was damaging his reputation by making him look like a troll in World of Warcraft.

“Damaging my reputation and everything I built up to make me look like a big fucking troll, do you think its funny? Because it ain’t. I’ll forgive you and take back my complaint if you can change the NPC from a troll to a humanoid, make me a king and I’ll forgive you.”

It remains to be seen if Blizzard will be willing to change the name or look of their in-game NPC who’s name clearly resembles the popular Twitch streamer, GrossGore.

PewDiePie teases a return to Minecraft in YouTube comeback

YouTube King Felix ‘PewDiePie’ Kjellberg has teased fans about a return to Minecraft, suggesting that he might return to the game soon – but he could be messing with us.

It seems that anything PewDiePie does with regards content creation is a home run among his fanbase. We’ve seen the YouTuber try his hand at Cyberpunk 2077, review memes with one-time enemy KSI, and even review gym fails. Whatever he puts down, his audience picks up in their millions.

Arguably his most popular series to date – a considerable achievement given the acclaim pretty much everything he does is met with – is his foray into Minecraft.

Mojang’s sandbox game has kept millions of players around the world engaged since its release in 2011. 10 years later, and PewDiePie is showing just how popular it can still be.

Beating the Ender Dragon is far from the end of a player’s adventures in Minecraft.

However, fans of the British-based Swede have noticed he’s taken a step back from content creation in the new year, failing to upload to his 108 million subscribers for a few consecutive weeks.

A return video, though, came on January 23, and ended with a teaser for fans of his Minecraft series.

“Guys, I’m really excited to be back,” he said, rounding off a trademark PewDiePie video with an anime avatar. “It feels good, I genuinely missed you guys, I hoped you had a great time off. So did I, but I’m ready to, with new energy – get back into playing Minecraft. Everyday, all day! Let’s get it.”

Fans of the 31-year-old will be incredibly excited to see him back in the world of Minecraft, with many memorable moments certain to follow a return. There have been so many iconic moments in the past that we chose our top ten back in March. 

But, no one’s exactly sure if he’ll keep his promise. Kjellberg is always a bit tongue-in-cheek with his videos, and he has stepped away and come back to Minecraft a number of times.

He ended his Minecraft series in May 2020, citing that “some people were complaining that it was getting a bit dry. And I kind of agree with you.”

He might not be back ‘all day, everyday’ like he promised, but it seems that he’s expecting to be back playing it soon.
