A World of Warcraft Classic streamer has been banned on Twitch after making a name for himself for continuously trolling Asmongold.

WoW Classic became an instant hit when it released in August 2019, with millions of players enjoying the game as it dominated Twitch during the first few months of its release.

Popular World of Warcraft streamers like Asmongold became some of the biggest broadcasters on the platform and as with any game became a target of stream snipers. However, one other broadcaster may have taken things a little too far as he centered all of his content around the streamer.

AsmongoldAsmongold is WoW Classic’s biggest streamer.

Streamer and YouTuber ‘AdvertiseSP’ became infamous in the WoW Classic community due to his constant griefing of Asmongold. The streamer allegedly targeted the American in most of his streams and has dedicated his YouTube channel to videos of him and his group killing the American in-game.

Asmongold was understandably frustrated with Advertise and occasionally complained about him during his broadcasts. On November 27, the streamer was banned on Twitch, with some fans theorizing that Asmongold’s complaints pressured the company to act.

Other users, however, argued that AdvertiseSP was breaking the platform’s terms of service by griefing Classic WoW’s most popular streamer, and that is the reason behind his ban.

Twitch generally does not release statements regarding bans and punishments, so it’s unlikely that a reason will ever be revealed. Although, Asmongold may now breathe a sigh of relief as the troll is banned on Twitch.

Meanwhile, WoW Classic has been slowing down in popularity, however, it may see a resurgence with the release of a fan-favorite feature, player vs player battlegrounds.

These battlegrounds are coming on December 10, allowing players to fight it out in capture the flag and king of the hill modes, as well as a massive 40 vs 40 base defense mode.

Popular YouTuber Felix ‘PewDiePie’ Kjellberg was stunned after a company copyright claimed his Meme Review with JJ ‘KSI’ Olatunji. The Swede lost all the revenue for the upload due to their awful performance of “My Heart Will Go On” from Titanic. 

On November 22, PewDiePie teamed up with fellow YouTube star KSI for an epic Meme Review. The duo tackled everything from British culture to Olatunji’s boxing match with Logan Paul.

Kjellberg later revealed on Instagram that the popular video had been copyright claimed by a company. The personality called the move “bulls**t” after the corporation took all the revenue over their Titanic joke.

The YouTubers’ awful performance of My Heart Will Go On got the video claimed for copyright.

PewDiePie & KSI’s Meme Review copyright claimed

PewDiePie’s Meme Review with KSI was a major hit on the platform, pulling in over 7.3 million views in just a few days. Fans of both YouTube creators were treated to a hilarious collaboration. However, the duo’s “attempt” to perform My Heart Will Go On on a flute and alpine horn caused the video to get claimed.

Kjellberg revealed the issue on his Instagram story on November 25. “So I got a claim on my KSI video. At the end, we played My Heart Will Go On,” he said, before playing a clip of their awful performance to demonstrate how absurd the claim was. “It’s too similar!” he joked.

It turns out the YouTuber had appealed the claim, but was denied. “So I appealed it, because its bulls**t why, and they rejected it! This is actually infringing on copyright according to this company!” he exclaimed, before breaking into laughter.

The 31-year-old explained that the company was now going to get 100% of the money made off the popular upload. “So all the revenue now goes to this company for the entire video. Like, what? Yeah, I just thought it was bulls**t, I don’t even know.”

The whole scenario is made all the more ridiculous when you consider that the Titanic joke was only a few seconds in a 26 minute upload. The fact that the company now gets to own the entire video is a good example how YouTube’s content ID system can sometimes be flawed.
