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.
