World of Warcraft Classic may have only released on August 26, but WoW Classic has become an immediate hit with players and streamers alike, with the game’s Twitch category hitting an astounding 1 million viewers on release day, while queues to get on were so long that some people had to wait hours to get into the game.

Among those grinding the game is shroud, whose streaming habits already show the hold that Wow Classic has over him.

WoW Classic has become an immediate smash hit on Twitch.

The former CS:GO pro dropped a 25-hour stream following the release of the game, working his way up to Level 25 before his PC bluescreened on him, which spelled the end of that broadcast.

Already though, shroud was showing signs of a full-blown WoW addiction, and even he was forced to admit it as he revealed his plans to get his girlfriend to log him back into the game to make sure he didn’t waste time queuing to get onto his server.

“I’ll tell her to log me on at 8,” said the streamer as he explained his plan to his audience. “God, this is such a grind. I can’t believe I’m committing this much to WoW, what is wrong with me? I’m going all the way. I’m down, I want to hit 60, and I don’t want to be late. I’m a nerd. I’m going to get some sleep, I’ll be back on in seven hours.”

True to his word, shroud fired his stream back up eight hours later, complaining that the queue took “a little longer than anticipated,” before thanking his fans for their help after some sent him green items for him to disenchant for XP.

Shroud is one of many Twitch streamers who have left behind their normal content schedule to hop on WoW Classic, although not everyone is a fan, with Dr Disrespect complaining about the game while explaining why he had no intention of joining the grind.

For shroud though, the road to level 60 continues, and it seems he is ready to put in as many hours as it takes so he can prepare for battle in the incredibly popular title.

However, some of these on-stream occurrences are downright strange, and many streamers have received the odd occasional gift from their viewers, including that time when Pokimane received a body pillow with a photo of herself on it.

While streamers having a public P.O. Box to receive gifts from fans is not uncommon, very often the things they receive are; and Twitch streamer TheStockGuy became the subject of a seriously weird present of sorts.

Twitch star “Pokimane” has received a slew of strange gifts from fans – one of which was a body pillow with her own face on it.

During an October 6 broadcast, TheStockGuy — who has gained notoriety on the platform for educating his viewers about finances and the stock market — revealed he’d been sent 126 lbs of Ocean Spray brand cranberry sauce.

“What is wrong with you people?” the streamer asked, seeming genuinely baffled by the situation. “Somebody sent me 126 lbs of cranberry sauce! What — where am I supposed to put this? Isn’t there some charity or something this money could go to?”

Although the he appeared to be utterly flummoxed by the viewers’ decision, he decided to make the best of the unexpected prank, stating that he would donate the sauce to his local food bank for the upcoming Thanksgiving holiday.

“I mean — you know what? Joke’s on you!” he continued. “I’m giving this to the local food shelter for thanksgiving, so they don’t have to purchase cranberry sauce! That’s right — we’re making something good out of this!”

It seems that TheStockGuy’s viewers found the scenario to be completely hilarious — and while it certainly is worth a hearty chuckle, it’s good to know that the broadcaster is putting his viewer’s practical joke to good use, in the end.
