WoW Classic streamer’s hearth teleport ends in absolute disaster

A World of Warcraft Classic streamer faced a hilarious issue when he teleported back to a friendly town for safety but found himself in the midst of an enemy attack as soon as he arrived.

Raiding enemy towns is one of the fun things that keeps World of Warcraft interesting; the anticipation of being attacked, or preparing an attack between you and your teammates, keeps the game interesting and fresh.

But you might not know when this is going to happen, and sometimes you’re simply unprepared for what you’re about to face, as one streamer found out in a livestream on November 4.

BlizzardBlizzard’s MMO was re-released in August 2019 to much fanfare.

Playing in what appeared to be a very chilled environment and stream, AdvertiseSP decided to use a Hearthstone to teleport back to Kargath thanks to a suggestion from a viewer, with Advertise saying that there “might be more players at Kargath”.

This turned out to be a huge understatement, as Advertise came face to face with way more players than he would’ve expected, as an enemy team was attacking the town, causing Advertise to burst out laughing and simply say “maybe hearthing into Kargath wasn’t a great idea.”

He quickly teleported back out of Kargath to put himself in a more tranquil environment before finishing up the stream, saying “RIP Kargath, but it is time for bed now.”

It’s fair to say that this is the last thing Advertise expected when he revisited Kargath, and may have been just enough to push him over the edge and turn the stream off – when it’s getting late anyway, a huge fight against an enemy team is the last thing you want to be doing.

World of Warcraft saw a revival in August 2019 when Blizzard re-released it, and since then it has floated around the top of the Twitch charts thanks to its huge following and playerbase.

Pokimane responds to transphobia accusations after Discord DMs emerge

Pokimane has been accused of being a trans-exclusionary radical feminist after a mod tried to blame her for discriminating against a trans girl, but she apologized and maintained her innocence.

Iman ‘Pokimane’ Anys is normally in the spotlight for the right reasons. However, she’s been caught up in drama lately after leaked documents about her relationship with Federico ‘Fedmyster’ Gaytan surfaced.

Pokimane denied the allegations, and it looked like smooth sailing from here on out. But now, another incident has surfaced. It’s a serious one that has thrown her into drama yet again.

Pokimane has been caught up in one drama after another lately.

Pokimane’s official Discord server has a role exclusive to girls, but users can’t get it unless they confirm their gender by speaking in voice chat. It’s supposed to be a failsafe way to stop male viewers from pretending to be females for trolling purposes.

However, a mod rejected a trans girl from the role. He claimed he was following orders and deflected the blame onto Pokimane. Apparently, the trans girl persisted, which ultimately lead to being banned from the server.

This sparked an uproar on social media. Some people even accused Pokimane of being a trans-exclusionary radical feminist (TERF). Fortunately, she responded quickly and assured fans that everybody is welcome in her community.

“I’m looking into this with said mod/proof of the conversation that was held between them,” she said. [I] will [also] contact SHSLChris directly to resolve this and to assure she is welcomed properly.”

“Anyone in my community should be welcomed with open arms no matter what gender/sexuality,” she added. “I’m so sorry if anyone was made to feel otherwise, especially by a mod. That is not okay, and I’ll make sure it’s properly handled.”

“Furthermore, I’ve unmodded the person in question,” she said, implying that he acted independently.

“Again, I’m so sorry for this interaction, as it is not something I reinforce/a rule of mine, and is far from representative of my personal opinions, as I truly support the trans community.”

The key takeaway is the mod appears to have acted or interpreted the rules in his own way, and has since been unmodded.

Pokimane also maintained her innocence and claimed she is in full support of the trans community. Whether the affected user will accept her invite back into the Discord remains to be seen.
