Asmongold’s epic raid of Horde territory ends with hilarious Blizzard conspiracy theory

World of Warcraft Classic streamer “Asmongold” rallied hundreds of Alliance players to his cause as they fought to take over a Horde island – but were met with an untimely disconnect.

Asmongold had business to conduct on an island, and he wanted to make sure he brought more than enough backup to do the job.

On August 29, he led the first major PvP event in WoW Classic as he fought to prove that Alliance was the dominant faction on Faerlina, which happens the unofficial streamer server.

Blizzard EntertainmentFor the Horde?

Asmon tried his best to rally the troops as he gave them numerous motivational speeches, pleading with them to hold their ground until the Horde arrived. The streamer had a lot of troops under his command, so it was impressive to see everything as organized as it was.

“All pets on aggressive, turn them into Pitbulls,” he said as he counted down, right before being hit with the most untimely disconnect. “Shit! Get back on! Get back on! Get back on! F*ck! Get back on quick!”

Luckily, there was no long queue, so he got right back into the action. However, he did so without the help of much of his team.

He explained that they’d somehow ended up back on the boat they originally jumped from, leaving him in a highly vulnerable position with little means of defending himself. He chalked up the disconnect to Blizzard actively working against him.

“All groups besides mine got teleported back to the fucking ship,” he said. “If there’s anything else you need to know about Blizzard favoritism, this is it. This is Blizzard favoritism at its worst.”

Eventually, Asmongold was revived when his team showed back up, and he was able to take control of the island.

It was a bloody affair, but in the end, the Alliance reigned supreme and put the Horde across the rest of the server on notice.

How to transfer your World of Warcraft character for free in Shadowlands

For a limited time, World of Warcraft players in high population realms can transfer their characters for free due to an enormous influx of players in Shadowlands. Here’s how to do it.

World of Warcraft: Shadowlands is already a huge success. Old and new players have been pouring in high numbers to start or continue their adventures in Azeroth. It’s exciting to see the player base grow exponentially once again.

However, it’s a double-edged sword. High population realms already had log in queues from time to time. Now, the enormous influx of players has made them even more prevalent.

Fortunately, Activision-Blizzard has been monitoring the situation and they’ve come up with a temporary solution. For a limited time, players in high population realms will have access to a Free Character Transfer service. It’s available now, and it’s very easy to do.

World of Warcraft: Shadowlands players in high-population realms will be able to transfer their character for free.

How to transfer your character for free in World of Warcraft: Shadowlands

  • First, you’ll need to be in an eligible high-population realm.
  • Then, if you are, you’ll be able to see the Free Character Transfer service in the Services section of the Shop on your character selection screen.
  • Click that, and choose the destination realm you’d like to join. Keep in mind that you cannot select a destination realm that also has a high population.

The character transfer won’t happen instantly. It might even take longer than usual due to increased demand.

Naturally, you also won’t be able to log in to your character until the realm transfer has finished. It also cannot be canceled and is irreversible.  Activision-Blizzard can disable the Free Character Transfer service at any time.

If you’ve been playing Shadowlands, the long queue times might have been a bit frustrating. However, it’s good that Blizzard are at least trying to alleviate it somewhat.

This promotion probably won’t last long, so if you want to transfer your characters, do it as soon as you can.
