Twitch streamer Asmongold's editor rebels against his boss: People love it

Published

on

Twitch streamer Asmongold has a busy YouTube channel that edits together videos from his Twitch stream. But after a controversy, the whole thing is taking on a bizarre life of its own.

This is the situation:

  • Asmongold has long been a leading WoW streamer on Twitch.
  • In recent years, however, he has become a “reaction streamer” who has been accused of farming drama with “ragebait” videos. This started especially when he intensively followed the court case with Johnny Depp and Amber Heard.
  • The editor of his videos on the clip channel increasingly appears as an actor in the videos, which Asmongold himself caricatures and criticizes passive-aggressively. He goes by the name “The Editor” – i.e. the editor.

Twitch streamer Asmongold says: “Stop watching streams at 3 a.m. if you don’t have any money!”

Asmongold explains how hard streaming is – criticized for it

What is the conflict about? Asmongold has commented on the topic “Streaming is harder than normal jobs” and has taken the following position here:

  • Streaming is emotionally draining and more stressful than many other jobs
  • He himself is an absolute leading streamer and better at it than most, so he can judge that

What is the problem? These comments from Asmongold have earned him a lot of criticism and especially dislikes on his YouTube videos.

The criticism of him is that with these statements he is smearing the jobs of normal people, even though he is a multimillionaire. He could complain about his job. But it’s not his place to devalue everyone else’s jobs as “easy”.

Asmongold is then someone who deals intensively with this criticism in his live streams on Twitch and his streams then become self-examinations.

That's exactly what the editor accuses him of in a video: The editor fast forwards through the Twitch stream that lasts several hours and complains that Asmongold only addresses the conflict and no longer produces any new, funny content. According to him, Asmongold is stuck in a “stun lock,” meaning he is permanently paralyzed.

This is how the conflict continued: In another video on YouTube, the editor then fakes an apology from Asmongold and makes it look like he's taking a nose at cocaine and then apologizes for defending himself. In reality, the editor here has edited together ancient Asmongold videos.

As the discussion continues, the editor turns to one of Asmongold's friends, McConnell, for help; only he can save Asmongold and the channel.

How is that received? Even though Asmongold is currently being criticized, people love the mocking and self-deprecating videos of the “editor,” who uses his unique voice to give the videos their own spin.

And Asmongold is professional enough to put a good face on the bad side and let it all work out.
