Twitch star Michael ‘WoW Classic streamer, as his own addiction to the MMO continues.

Shroud is best known for his amazing talent on first-person shooters, but since the release of World of Warcraft Classic he’s been on an insane grind that even saw him enlist the help of his girlfriend to make sure he missed as little time playing as possible.

While broadcasting the incredibly popular game for his audience, he discussed what it takes to be a truly great WoW streamer, and why Asmongold is the cream of the crop on Twitch.

Blizzard EntertainmentShroud has been grinding WoW Classic since release.

After Asmongold claimed that WoW was another game that the former CS:GO pro was better at than he was, the 25-year-old heaped praise on his Twitch peer.

“He’s so funny,” shroud told his chat after engaging in some friendly back-and-forth with the streamer. “Asmondgold is like the perfect WoW streamer, that’s why he gets so many viewers.”

He added: “To make WoW entertaining, you have to talk, and Asmond always has the greatest topics and discussions and arguments and everything.”

Shroud may feel that Asmongold is the standard bearer for streamers in the WoW community, although that hasn’t stopped him from constantly streaming the game, even mentioning that he would love to become a full-time World of Warcraft broadcaster.

While the Canadian is having a great time broadcasting the game, it seems not everybody is as happy to see him grinding the MMO, with Dr Disrespect donating $100 in an attempt to bring him back to the battle royale genre shroud is known for.

Whether he keeps grinding the game remains to be seen, but shroud is determined to keep playing WoW for as long as he enjoys it, even if he thinks there are better WoW Classic streamers than him.

Pokimane slams Fedmyster’s second OfflineTV document: “Who asked?”

⁠Former Offline TV member Federico ‘Fedmyster’ Gaytan has released yet another lengthy Google Doc regarding the accusations of misconduct against him from OTV streamers, claiming he wants to “move on” from the drama.

Fedmyster was released from OTV in June 2020, after streamers LilyPichu, Yvonne and Pokimane levied accusations of harassment and inappropriate conduct against him.

Following these accusations, it seemed that all was resolved, with Fed having been removed from the group as a result; but a Google Doc seemingly leaked from the disgraced streamer in late November, which set off a chain reaction of outrage across the internet.

In the leaked November document, Fed appeared to accuse Pokimane of not being honest about their relationship to her viewers, and included screenshots of private text messages between them.

While Pokimane went on to respond to this document, saying he’d admitted his guilt, Fedmyster released yet another lengthy statement on December 1, claiming that he had actually never intended to release the original Doc. Instead, he explained that it had actually been a “form of therapy for myself, to address my concerns about the way Poki portrayed me in her stream.”

Fedmyster also purported that a formerly-trusted member of his community had leaked the document, leading to a “violent breach of my trust and against my wishes as I’ve been working hard to grow, heal, and move on from everything.”

The leaked document of Fedmyster’s in November had been titled “My Truth,” and mostly centered around his relationship with Pokimane.

The former streamer likewise addressed allegations that he had attempted to get Yvonne fired from the group due to her accusations against him. Denying that he had ever wanted her kicked from the crew, he claims that his concerns were due to her “lack of excitement and willingness to help with OfflineTV projects when it’s the only reason she’s in the house.”

He included several other explanations regarding his text messages with Pokimane, as well as his portrayal of Jodi toward Poki, who he apologized for, “painting her to Imane in such a poor light.”

Fedmyster ended his document by claiming that he wants “to move on and start a new chapter in my life,” hoping to put the issue to rest once and for all.

Pokimane has since responded to the document with a scathing tweet, writing, “Who asked lol.”

Fedmyster’s long document has been met with similar reactions from readers online, marking yet another episode of an ongoing incident between some of Twitch’s top content creators.
