Asmongold on WoW’s next expansion

The 30-year-old streamer was live on March 7 when he shared his tempered expectations for WoW’s next XPAC.

“Let’s see what’s gonna happen. S**t, there’s nothing I can do to stop it. I’m just gonna sit back and enjoy the show. If Steve Danuser can cook up something good that’s fun to watch and play then I’ll be happy about it.”

The streamer continued: “Now, will that happen? It’s hard to say. I’ve got a good feeling that it’ll probably be better than Shadowlands. Here’s the thing, I don’t really give a s**t. If the expansions bad, who cares? I’ll just play Lost Ark or New World or Final Fantasy XIV or something. It’s not a big deal.”

With tons of other MMOs competing with WoW for Asmongold’s time, the true test of if he will play the next expansion or not is its quality in gameplay and storyline.

He continued: “There are a lot of paradigms in WoW they just need to move away from” like raid difficulties and resetting the game every patch.

Asmongold couldn’t even finish the final Shadowlands raid, as he rage quit it in order to play more Elden Ring.
