Borderlands 3 officially released on September 13, and while some were grinding the new game all weekend, WoW Classic addiction, and the massive queue times, saw him move back to the MMO.

Since the release of World of Warcraft Classic, shroud has been spending almost all of his streams grinding the game, levelling up his character and obtaining new loot as he takes on quests and dungeons.

On Sunday, September 15, the streamer spent some time away from WoW to play Borderlands 3, but after switching back to the MMORPG, shroud explained why he had decided to head back to his current favorite game, and why queue times on the game were the main reason.

2K GamesShroud dropped Borderlands, and blamed WoW Classic as the reason why.

“Did you not like it, or just wanted some WoW?” a viewer asked in the former CS:GO pro’s Twitch chat. “I was in a WoW queue for like six hours while I was playing Borderlands, so I wanted to play WoW.”

The 25-year-old continued: “If WoW was something a little more open where I could just join and play whenever the fuck I want, I’d probably have played Borderlands for another hour and then got off, but you kind of have to play WoW whenever you can because the queues are so fucking long.”

“It’s crazy. Literally, you have to wait six hours to get into the server on fucking weekends. Weekdays is not so bad, but on weekends you have to wait six to nine hours, it’s fucking stupid. Borderlands is pretty cool, I like it.”

For many WoW Classic players, queue times have been a major issue, and while Blizzard have attempted to solve the solution by increasing the max server load, some are still being forced to wait hours to get on, like shroud found on Sunday.

Of course, the streamer’s addiction to the game was another reason for his decision to jump back on the game, and while he has admittedly lost thousands of subscribers while playing the game, he has no intention of dropping it because of the dip in viewers pledging their cash to his channel.


Corpse Husband shares heartbreaking update on his chronic health condition

The viral YouTube star and music artist known as ‘Corpse Husband’ has shared a grim update on his chronic health condition with his fans, leading to an outpouring of support for the content creator who has taken over the internet.

While Corpse Husband has been on YouTube for some time, he rose to the top of the platform’s ‘Whos’ Who’ in late 2020, becoming known for his deep voice and humorous Among Us streams with other top creators.

Despite his impressive popularity, the YouTuber stated in a January 2 broadcast that he might not be able to continue his career as a full-time entertainer for the long-term.

Corpse cited his chronic illnesses for this potential development, and already limits his broadcasts to one or two streams a week as a result.

(Topic begins at 1:13 in the video below.)

It doesn’t look like the outlook has become any less bleak, either, as he shared a heartbreaking update on his health in a series of tweets via his alternate account a few weeks later.

“I did my needle EMG for my nerve conduction study and got some results that are not good,” he wrote. “I don’t really know how to process it or cope with it. I still want to participate in everything coming up. If I seem off in any upcoming things, that’s why. I don’t really know what to do.”

According to Corpse, the diagnosis is that there is little to no treatment for his nerve condition, with doctors stating he would be in pain without any hope of reprieve throughout his lifetime.

“They probably identified the problem with my arms,” he continued. “They basically told me I’m going to be in pain like this for the rest of my life and that it’s only going to get worse, and there’s not much I can do about it besides relieve it sometimes with injections. Idk.”

Thus far, Corpse has been met with ample support from his fans and fellow creators, with the likes of Pokimane and even Valkyrae wishing him well amid such a devastating diagnosis.

While Corpse has been relatively open about his conditions in the past, this latest update truly brings the matter into perspective — but luckily, he’s got a wealth of supportive friends and fans to help him through it.
