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.

After receiving a huge $2,500 donation, Twitch streamer HAchubby celebrated in a rather unexpected manner that made for an amazing Twitch highlight.

If you’re a fan of Twitch and you tune into the platform regularly then you’ll know that watching streamers receive huge donations is always entertaining. Audiences love watching them so much, there’s even a sub-genre of videos on YouTube that are dedicated to donating huge amounts of money to streamers to see their reactions.

It’s no surprise these videos get millions of views as it’s always great content to see a Twitch streamer having their day made by a big donation. Of course, it’s difficult to predict how someone will act after being donated a large amount of money.

In HAchubby’s case, it involved celebrating by running around her store with a basket on her head.

HAchubby celebrates huge Twitch donation

During her January 19 stream, HAchubby received a huge $2,500 Twitch donation from one of her viewers. Of course, she was extremely grateful for the donation and expressed how thankful she was: “Oh my god, oh my god, oh my god thank you so much.”

At first, it appeared as if she was going to carry on with the stream, but then she suddenly burst into a celebratory dance. Her Twitch chat erupted with messages and her viewers were clearly happy to see how thankful she was for the donation.

It was at that point she grabbed a basket from the store that she owns and began running about the aisle with it on her head. The highlight made for a hilarious Twitch clip and it was obvious how much the donation meant to her.

There’s no denying it’s not your typical reaction to a donation, but it’ll certainly be a memorable highlight for any of her viewers watching live. On top of this, you can guarantee it’ll be added to the range of streamer donation clips featured in various compilation videos.

We’ll have to keep our eye for any more big donations that HAchubby receives to see how she reacts the second time around.
