The internet collectively lost its mind when World of Warcraft Classic released on August 26, bringing with it a slew of nostalgia and hilarious moments – but not everyone is having a good time since the game’s release.

While Twitch streamers like Asmongold and Alinity Divine are having a field day with the title, one Twitch personality isn’t so pleased with WoW Classic’s recent surge in popularity.

Pin-up artist “Saruei” is a quickly-growing personality on the platform, after being banned for “inappropriate content” due to her artwork of characters from video game series Fate/Grand Order and her subsequent blasting of Twitch’s stance on appropriate content.

Twitch: SarueiTwitch artist “Saruei” received a ban for “inappropriate content” in mid-September, prompting a lengthy tirade on Twitch’s stance in regards to appropriate content.

This time, the streamer wasn’t discussing potential bans from the site – instead, she gave viewers a head-shaking, heartbreaking story of a recent breakup, which was ultimately brought about thanks to WoW Classic.

According to Saruei, she wanted to “connect” with her boyfriend by playing the game together – but when presented with the proposition, her partner went silent for “days.”

“I was thinking that, you know, why do you want a girlfriend if you’re not even trying to answer my messages and stuff?” she explained. “I asked him, ‘It’s me or your game.’ He answered me, ‘For the Horde. For the Horde!’”

Saruei’s ex-boyfriend wouldn’t be the only player completely absorbed in the game, by far: in fact, viral streamer “Jaegerrmeister” has fallen back into disarray, after shocking the net by cleaning his room he’d left untouched since 2005 thanks to a crippling WoW addiction and depression.

Jaegerrmeister, TwitchTwitch streamer “Jaegerrmeister” hadn’t cleaned his room in years, thanks to a serious addiction to WoW.

However, after Classic’s release, his room has once again turned into a veritable pigsty, claiming that, “You can clean the room, [but] you can’t clean the lifestyle, dude.”

Unsurprisingly, WoW Classic has seen massive popularity following its publication, with the game’s category boasting a jaw-dropping six million followers on Twitch as of September 15 – but that very popularity can result in serious degradation of both personal habits and relationships, when players take games – or any pastime – too seriously, foregoing relationships and even personal hygiene.

Tommyinnit reveals he used to stream snipe Shroud before he was famous

Tommyinnit might be the most popular streamer on Twitch right now, averaging over 200,000 concurrent viewers for his sporadic Minecraft streams, but it turns out he used to be a massive shroud fanboy. In fact, he was one of shroud’s infamous stream snipers.

Stream sniping is the practice of using a streamer’s broadcast to gain information about the game they are playing – either to get an unfair advantage, or simply to join their game and troll them.

During the height of PUBG’s popularity in 2017, shroud was the biggest streamer on Twitch, and had an army of loyal stream snipers who would try endlessly to get into his matches.

Shroud’s stream snipers weren’t like others though – instead of trying to kill him, they would sing him songs, give him weapons and armor, or try to save his life when under attack.

Tommyinnit admits shroud stream sniping

Although it’s against the rules of most games and of Twitch itself, Tommyinnit has admitted that when he was 14, back in 2017, he loved both PUBG and shroud, and would spend hours up late trying to get into his games.

And he was successful too – often matching up with him, and trying to save his life from actual enemies attacking him. Shroud eventually became familiar with Tommy’s name, and would say hello to him. In a video on his second channel, Tommyoutit, came clean about all of his stream sniping antics.

In one session, shroud even talked to Tommy about playing Minecraft, the game that he’s so well-known for now.

But, it turns out that Tommyinnit made this video because it wasn’t just years ago in PUBG that he was stream sniping shroud. When he recently saw shroud on a Minecraft server with proximity chat, he had to try it again for old times sake.

Unfortunately, shroud didn’t seem to be enjoying himself at all this time around, and soon after left the server – though not before killing Tommyinnit’s character, twice.

Although stream sniping is technically against the rules on Twitch, we’re sure the platform will let this one slide, as it was all in good fun. The real question is whether shroud has made the connection that one of his old stream snipers is now one of the biggest names on Twitch alongside him.
