Popular streamer and Hearthstone player Jeremy “Disguised Toast” Wang has made a move from Twitch to Facebook Gaming – and while some fans are wary of the change, another top personality is mainly optimistic.

Wang announced his move on Friday, November 22, joining the mass Twitch exodus from other top streamers to mark the first significant personality to stream exclusively via Facebook Gaming.

Claiming that he hopes to gain a “larger platform to share my voice with a global audience,” Toast’s move to the service has left many fans scratching their heads as other streamers move to Mixer – but streaming star Imane “Pokimane” Anys is mostly hopeful for his venture.

Anys, a member of Toast and crew’s “Offline TV” group, gave her thoughts on Toast’s transition to Facebook Gaming during a Twitch stream on November 22, where she expressed a hopeful outlook on the development in spite of fan speculation.

“Facebook Gaming, in general, isn’t that developed,” she began. “But I think he’s not only a great streamer, but he’s a very smart businessman. So he’ll be able to help them make changes that’ll make their live streaming better.”

The streamer went on to throw some subtle shade towards fans overly concerned with platforms’ view counts, reiterating the fact that Facebook likely saw ample opportunity in partnering with Toast in light of competing sites like Mixer and Twitch.

“I know for a lot of you guys, it’s just like, ‘What’s their view count at, eyeballs?’” she continued. “But no platform starts at 100k. You know? My point is, they’re getting a lot of value out of him in probably a lot of different ways.”

While some might speculate that Toast’s decision was based on profit, the streamer admitted that Facebook’s initiative for “helping others in need” was a large part of his decision – a statement that comes as little surprise, as he encouraged viewers to stop subscribing and donating to his channel just ahead of his move.

No matter the case, Disguised Toast’s partnership with Facebook Gaming marks yet another top streamer leaving Twitch as personalities continue to explore other options in the wake of the site’s controversial moderation decisions.

World of Warcraft Shadowlands finally arrived on November 23 and while one Twitch streamer drove home far too fast to load it up with friends, the Police officer who stopped them completely understood. 

As many members of the community will know, the game’s latest expansion will bring together loads of new and returning players for an all-new story. There’s Covenants to mess around with, new quests to try out, and many will have been rushing home to play it after work.

Though, speeding is against the highway code and by driving too fast you are putting others in danger – which meant one streamer was unfortunately told to pull over by the Cops.

Usually, this would lead to a speeding ticket, but after explaining their reason for going too fast – to get home and throw Shadowlands on – the officer came in clutch and decided to turn a blind eye in what was quite a remarkable story.

Shadowlands is finally here and some are getting a bit to exicted.

Shadowlands saves Twitch streamer a speeding ticket

On release day, streamer bbnogames was already playing Shadowlands when his friend called, who presumably also streams with him.

They said: “Bro, hahaha. The Cop was like ‘yo, you know how fast you were going?’ I’m like dude I’m so sorry, this game is dropping soon, all my friends are waiting for me.

“He’s like ‘Shadowlands?’ And I’m like yeah, and he’s like OK go!”

 

After that, he said he was just five minutes away and eventually joined the team playing online. After that remarkable exchange with the Police officer, things went without a hitch, when really he could have been left with a hefty ticket to pay for his troubles.

Instead, they were able to link up together later in the night and jump into World of Warcraft’s latest expansion. Maybe next time, he won’t be so lucky.
