On Twitch, Asmongold is one of the most well-known and influential streamers. Although many people know Asmongold for his controversial views on his favorite game, World of Warcraft, he has also streamed other MMOs with great success. After years of requests, he began a Final Fantasy XIV playthrough in 2021.
Asmongold hasn’t always been the upbeat, energetic person we see today. Asmongold has taken long breaks from streaming on several occasions, citing stress or unforeseen circumstances as reasons. For example, his previous hiatus in 2020 was caused by a family tragedy, and fans from all over the world rallied to his side. Asmongold has even considered quitting streaming entirely on a few occasions.
Asmongold never stopped playing video games, even during his breaks. Fans could often find him on his zackrawrr account, where he didn’t use a facecam and was less concerned with entertaining his chat, resulting in a less stressful streaming experience. Asmongold is now streaming full-time and plans to keep it that way.
Asmongold was wrapping up his coverage on some new information about “World of Warcraft: Dragonflight” during a Just Chatting stream on April 19th when a viewer asked if he would take a break now that Blizzard had announced the expansion.
To gain a better understanding of his viewpoint, consider the recent Twitch leak about streamer salaries. Asmongold expressed his thoughts on his large salary in a video posted to his YouTube channel. He called streaming a dead-end job and said he wanted to make as much money as possible for his family. Asmongold would likely not have to worry about money for the rest of his life if he stopped streaming today.
While some fans on Reddit expressed concerns that he would never go back to FFXIV, Asmongold shrugged off the notion that he has quit the game forever. But he doesn’t seem to plan on returning particularly soon. “I’ll come back to the game whenever I come back to the game,” he said.31-Mar-2022
