How did it all start?

After uploading YouTube videos via WoW as a content creator since 2009, he switched to Twitch in 2014. So he started the channel Asmongold.


In 2018 he decided to focus fully on Twitch and YouTube. Zack rejected the idea of ​​studying law.

Over time, it became more popular in the WoW community and saw a huge boost in 2019 when WoW Classic came out.

Sometimes Zack also talks about difficult phases and problems in his private life in the stream. That’s why he’s often taken Twitch breaks. Around 2021, when his mother died as a result of a fire accident. Until then he had lived with her.


Stream not only as Asmongold, but also as zackrawrr

In addition to his main account, Asmongold, Zack has a second account on Twitch: zackrawrr. He has 1.3 million followers there, but is not a Twitch partner.

Since July 2022, the streamer has been increasingly online on the zackrawrr account. According to that Twitter account @StreamsCharts he was in 6th place with this one of the most watched streamers in the first quarter of 2023.

Why isn’t he streaming on his main account? Although viewer numbers are very similar, Zack is currently finding it difficult to stream on his main channel. Asmongold is Zacks’ streamer persona, which he claims is different from his actual character. On zackrawrr, the streamer appears as “himself”.


Asmongold is a fictional character that caricatures the “typical gamer.” It’s just a character that Zack plays. For example, Asmongold accepted an award for best . streamer via video link from his messy room for not wanting to leave the house.

On the second account, however, he also talks about private topics and shares more serious thoughts, although he appears a little calmer than Asmongold.

For him, this distinction is important. Viewers don’t always notice the differences, however, and the boundaries between Zack and Asmongold are sometimes not too clear.


Asmongold founded OTK in 2020

Zack is also the co-founder of One True King, or OTK for short, a group of Twitch streamers. Most of them come from the . area. They work loosely together and support each other.

OTK acts as a network for influencers, all of whom produce digital content. They even sell their own merchandise on their website.
