Twitch streamer Mitch Jones revealed how he’s toeing the line with WoW Classic’s rules after giving an awkward admission to account sharing.

Blizzard and many other developers have strict rules on account sharing; the practice can see a lot of unfair advantages or unintended results occur in-game. Account sharing can be a bannable offense in some instances, so players would be wise to steer clear of the infraction.

As Twitch broadcasters are starting to take their WoW Classic adventures off-stream, fans are noticing discrepancies in their levels from one VOD to the next. This might be the case for Jones and his his 400,00+ followers on Twitch.

BlizzardWorld of Warcraft has rules against account sharing.

During his September 6 stream, Jones stepped into the world of Azeroth and mentioned how much he’s been loving WoW Classic. But his attempt to shut down trolls accusing him of account sharing didn’t go so well.

“I’ve actually been playing off-stream,” Jones said. “Maybe I had an honorable friend help me out a little bit, but other than that I’ve been doing most of the work myself. Sometimes when I pass out, I’ll watch (my friend) play a little bit. It is what it is.”

The popular streamer made sure to note his innocence due to the close proximity he maintains on the occasions when the friend is playing on his account: “But it’s not account sharing because I’m right next to him.”

But then he made a hilarious blunder when explaining how it wouldn’t be such a big deal for Blizzard if they should find out.

“You think Blizzard is going to come into my house be like ‘You can’t have him play while you’re sleeping,’” Jones said. “And I’ll be like ‘what do you mean, why not? He’s my friend and we share an account.’”

He immediately shut down the conversation, and joked saying if he got permabanned he’d just make another account and “pay some Russians to level it.”

Moments later, a viewer bringing up IP bans seemed to change Jones’ tune as he instantly retreated to saying he was joking about everything all along.

It sounds like Jones is really enjoying his time with WoW Classic, so he might want to be more vigilant and make sure he’s the only one playing on his account.

Popular League of Legends streamer Robert ‘Hashinshin’ Brotz has claimed the FBI investigated him over allegations he was sexually harassing minors, and cleared him of any wrongdoing. He was permanently banned on Twitch over the claims.

Hashinshin was ostracized from the League of Legends community back in July, after claims the 30-year-old Twitch streamer sexually harassed underage girls by abusing his platform of power.

Other popular content creators, like Joedat ‘Voyboy’ Esfahani, stated that “Hashinshin is a manipular, predator, and worst of all [a] pedophile who used his platform to abuse so many underage girls over the years.”

However, the disgraced streamer has claimed he was investigated by the FBI and cleared of all wrongdoing.

“There has been an FBI investigation into me, and I have neither been jailed or charged with a crime. Some of you might not believe that. I have a freedom of information request [to prove my innocence publicly], but that can take up to a year,” Brotz said in a October 7 statement.

Numerous women came forward stories in July of Hashinshin grooming them while they were underage. However, Hashinshin has always maintained his innocence, claiming these stories were false, and that many of those who came forward have since deleted their statements.

He also stated that he was potentially looking into suing some of the alleged victims for defamation, stating they did a “public assessment of [his] character” that distorted what people thought of him.

“I was going to sue Alli for defamation ⁠— and I probably should have ⁠— but Alli is not a victim, and people started getting these really distorted views on what was happening,” he said, referring to one of the victims.

“Things aren’t as they seem, regardless of what they seem. I’m not a rich and powerful figure. They didn’t find that I did anything. I think a lot of this was a public assessment of my character, and a lot of people did this because they didn’t like me.

“I’ve been working on bettering myself over the last two years, and I think I’ve become a better person overall. It hurts a lot…to see all these people denying that.”

Brotz claimed that while he believed his accusers weren’t “all terrible people,” they betrayed his trust. He also said that while he believes they should apologize, he hopes no one in the community attacks them. He just wants to “go back to living a normal life.”

“I thought these were nice people, I thought I could trust them and work with them. That’s why my response to this was all sh*tty because I shouldn’t really have trusted anyone. I don’t think they’re all terrible people, but things really escalated,” he said.

“I don’t want anyone to attack them. I just want to go back to living a normal life. I just want to exist peacefully, and I hope people can start letting me do that. I hope this can change their minds in some way.”

Hashinshin remains permanently banned on Twitch despite his attempts to clear this name. He has also lost his Twitch partnership, and has instead moved to streaming on YouTube.
