Shroud reveals how many Twitch subscribers he’s lost due to WoW Classic

Popular World of Warcraft Classic on a more regular basis.

Shroud became a star on the popular streaming platform thanks to his incredible skills on games like Apex Legends and PUBG, but following the release of WoW Classic, the former CS:GO pro has been grinding his way through dungeons and quests on an almost-nightly basis.

Not all of his viewers enjoy this content though, and during his September 9 stream, the Canadian gave a glimpse at how his subscriber count has changed since he transitioned to the incredibly popular MMO.

WOWShroud has been grinding WoW Classic, but it has come at a cost.

While streaming his gameplay, a chat member commented that shroud had lost 5,000 Twitch subscribers since he had started playing WoW, a claim he didn’t agree with.

“Not really,” the 25-year-old responded. “I don’t think five thousand.”

“Realistically, I’ve probably lost two or three thousand, because you still lose subs normally. I don’t gain subscribers playing other games. I was at my peak, and then the peak starts to fall. So not five thousand, probably three, which is still a lot, but when you’ve got to play Wow, you’ve got to play WoW!”

The streamer didn’t reveal how much those subscriptions are worth, but by using the price of a Tier 1 subscription at $4.99, and the baseline Twitch partnership revenue share which sees the platform and the creator share the money equally, it’s estimated that shroud is losing at least $7,400 compared to August. 

While shroud openly admits that he has seen a decline in his subscriber count since his decision to stream the game, he has previously admitted that he is willing to lose money and viewers for the game, even stating that he would love to become a full-time WoW streamer.

In fact, his addiction to the game is so huge, that he’s enlisted the help of his girlfriend in the past to avoid queue times, and was even playing off-stream as he continued levelling up his character.

Whether the drop in subscribers will encourage him to drop WoW entirely is unknown, but based on his previous comments about how having fun was more important than viewership, it seems the only thing that will trail him away from the game is frustration, or a new title that captures his attention.

YouTube star Jimmy ‘MrBeast’ Donaldson unveiled his very own fast food chain, ‘MrBeast Burger,’ last month — and it was only a matter of time before a competitive eater decided to take on the entire menu.

The newly-founded MrBeast Burger features a slew of classic fast food items named after the YouTuber and his crew of friends, such as the loaded MrBeast Style Fries, Chris’s french fry-filled burger, and Karl’s Grilled Cheese.

The restaurant has seen largely positive reviews from fans and fellow YouTubers, alike, and continues to turn heads across food delivery apps and social media circles; but one content creator decided to take things to the next level with a jaw-dropping challenge.

Competitive eater and YouTuber Matt Stonie kicked off the year with a bang by deciding to eat the entire MrBeast Burger menu in under 10 minutes and 39 seconds — the duration of MrBeast’s video unveiling his restaurant.

While that might seem like a daunting task, this is one of the more tame challenges Stonie has undertaken in his career; he’s downed 10,000 calories worth of Flamin’ Hot Cheetos, 100 pounds of Wumpa Fruit, and the entire menu of such chains as Chick-Fil-A and Raisin’ Canes, among several others.

The entire list of food Stonie consumed is as follows:

  • 1 Beast Style Burger
  • 1 Chandler Style Burger
  • 1 Chris Style Burger
  • 1 Chicken Sandwich
  • 1 Spicy Chicken Sandwich
  • 1 Karl’s Grilled Cheese
  • 1 order of seasoned fries
  • 1 order of Beast Style Fries
  • 1 bottle of water
  • 1 can of Pepsi
  • Six cookies

Although there’s no nutritional information for MrBeast Burger yet, Stonie was confident the Beast Style Burger packs a hefty caloric punch.

That’s not all; when there was an option to do so, Stonie also added on an extra patty to each burger he ordered, upping the ante of an already intimidating array of food.

Luckily, Stonie was able to down the full menu in 10 minutes and 23 seconds. That’s nothing to sneeze at!

As for his review on the food’s quality, Stonie admitted that the Chris Style Burger was his favorite. Who can resist some fries on a burger?

Having started his year with such a massive challenge, it seems like Stonie has a lot to live up to for the rest of 2021. (We don’t recommend you try his MrBeast Burger challenge for yourself at home, though — leave this one to the professionals!)
