Popular streamer Felix ‘WoW Classic, but the scheme didn’t really work out as expected.

EsfandTV has been playing the heck out of WoW Classic since release like a true pro, but xQc has only dabbled in the re-release of the online sensation since it came out in August, though he has logged many hours in WoW before.

For some reason a lot of players like to give streamers free money and equipment in WoW Classic (and other MMORPGs) so Felix decided to take advantage of this to make his buddy EsfandTV some quick cash.

xQc’s gold farming backfires

At first, xQc seems to be rolling in dough, getting 50 gold for free in a trade from one of Esfand’s generous fans.

Just after clicking the button to accept the trade, xQc accidentally also reset Esfand’s talent points on his Paladin, with the 50 gold he just made.

After trying to run out of the room and escape his mistake, xQc returned and simply stared at the screen, trying to come up with a solution.

Luckily, another Esfand fan quickly came in and offered another trade of 10 gold, which made the whole thing work out, from xQc’s point of view at least.

“Hey boys, boys, that’s what I call: profit,” Felix proclaimed before doing his best impression of a Booty Bay banker (AKA transforming into El Goblino) and scampering away.

Blizzard EntertainmentFelix, is that you?

Will Esfand be able to recover?

Even though it costs gold to reset talent points in WoW Classic, Esfand should be able to reassign his points and fill out his talent tree to where it was before fairly easily.

On top of that, he’s also 10 gold richer, so it seems that xQc’s gold farming strategy actually worked, kind of.

xQc hasn’t played WoW Classic on his stream since the game released in August and this display of his trading talents probably isn’t a good sign he’ll return any time soon.

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.
