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.


Virtual streamer CodeMiko banned from Twitch for third time

Popular virtual streamer CodeMiko has been banned from Twitch for the third time, leaving some fans asking if this is a permanent ban. 

Over the years, Twitch streamers have come up with different ways to stand out from the crowd instead of just being world-class at certain games. Some have ramped up production in a major way and you can’t really take your eyes off it.

That includes VTubers and virtual streamers too, who use a digital avatar, editing, and even in some cases, a motion capture suit, to replace themselves on-screen and take on a different persona. 

In the last few weeks, Codemiko – a streamer who takes the VTuber concept to a whole new level – has been getting massive numbers on Twitch. However, she’s now been banned, yet again.

The ban came on January 19 after StreamerBans, who tracks all the different bans – temporary or permanent – on Twitch, tweeted that CodeMiko had been suspended by Twitch. 

The reason for the ban, or its length, is unknown but some fans were quick to speculate on the reason. Some suggested that it was because she used the word Simp – which was recently banned by Twitch. 

Others noted that in a previous stream, where she was interviewing fellow streamer PayMoneyWubby, Codemiko was incredibly drunk and could have been banned for that. Twitch does have some strict rules around drinking on stream, especially if you get out of hand and overindulge. 

There’s no way of confirming just why she’s banned, or how long the ban will last unless the streamer reveals it herself. Twitch typically does not comment on individual bans.

The only thing she’s posted regarding the ban was the ‘sadge’ meme.

This would be her third ban, previously being banned twice in September of 2020.

However, a streamer has to be banned three times within a three month period to rack up a permanent ban, so, she’ll probably be back at some point in the near future.
