Zack”Asmongold“One of the most popular online live streamers on Twitch. He is a true giant when it comes to World of Warcraft.
With over three million followers under his belt, the creator has maintained an astounding 72K viewership on his main account in the past year.
Asmongold has been an outspoken critic of Blizzard’s policies, especially those that impede play. However, he was surprised at how easy it was to get the new Frostbrood Proto-Wyrm in the new update to Wrath of the Lich King Classic.
The expansion’s new pre-patch allows players to access the all-new carrier regardless of their rank.
While reading the blog post on WOWHead, Asmongold couldn’t believe that Blizzard, known for monetizing every ounce of their game, could come up with a nice looking item for free.
The OTK founder joked about this anomaly, desperate at the fact that he had nothing to complain about anymore:
“So it’s not an indirect way to boost reinforcements? What are we going to get angry about now?”
‘It must be a scam somehow’: Asmongold’s surprising jokes about Blizzard’s game policies
Asmongold has long been a critic of the developers of World of Warcraft. He turned a lot of heads in society when he called Blizzard Decreased ability to fly In the upcoming Dragonflight expansion from World of Warcraft.
The Austin native was highly critical of Blizzard when they were blacklisted peach games From Dragonflight Alpha.
When the American streamer came across patch notes about the mount, he was initially skeptical. He said:
“This is an in-game install. It looks cool. And you can have it. I’m really not kidding. You can get it just by playing the game. All you have to do is go and finish the Wrath Classic, the whole DK job is done and after you’re done you get this download on sale Retail WOW.”
Not reading it well, he assumed it was a promotion for their reinforcements:
What’s the point? The point is, most people don’t have 60 or 70 in retail. WOW, so they can’t get DK. So it’s a way for them to inadvertently offer a promotional way to buy a batch of a classic Wrath of the Lich King. And the boost allows them By getting this installed quickly. It’s actually quite smart.”
So far, I think Asmongold Blizzard It was actually generating income by trying to get players to spend money to get level boosts. However, the theory collapsed when his fans pointed out that the first Death Knight had already been produced at level 55. This means that no boost is required to get the Frostbrood Proto-Wyrm.
The Twitch star said:
“You don’t need it? First DK? Wait what… you don’t need level 55 to make a DK? So like, a brand new player, anyone who has never under any circumstances ever touched a Classic WOW can touch a Death Knight, and they will start at level 55.”
After Blizzard’s generosity, the player started sticking to the straw and joking about how it was somehow a scam:
“It must be a scam somehow, right? I mean, f**k! They trick us into buying the game, by adding a bonus that people want to play.” [for]. “
After realizing that the stand could be obtained fairly, Asmongold’s audience was utterly grateful for Blizzard.
