    Cool Sodapoppin is not a "WoW" streamer anymore.

    He just annonced it live. Will play wow time to time on request but officialy said he's not a wow streamer anymore.

    Who is Sodapoppin (inb4)? Basically 70% of WoW audience on Twitch (7k to 10k viewers average). One of the most funny streamer (and loved if i remind the poll on battle.net). Something like 170 000 subs on Youtube. I think he even won the best streamer award or something from Blizzard this year but cant find the link tho. Here actually


    Most Popular Non-English Streamer
    1st Place: Sodapoppin – 389,251,500 minutes watched

    Favorite World of Warcraft Stream
    1st Place: Sodapoppin
    2nd Place: Reckful
    3rd Place: Swifty


    What he's playing then? Looks like he's gonna give a solid try to Wildstar and just started to stream the closed beta. Maybe more PS4 games and so on. He's still a MMO lover. I guess i ll sub to him if he play Wildstar as a main game. He just sucks at console game imo ^^

    Np for the news.

    Edit lol 3500 views in 2h......

    Love u chance, whatever game you play, whatever shit you do. <3333



    Mod-note: Moved the thread, I don't see an overall discussion to be build on this topic to fulfill the world of warcraft topic. Though I wont lock it as there might be some following/knowing of this streamer and would like to talk about it. But this thread is to talk about the streamer and his doings, not really world of warcraft.

    Never heard of him. He doesn't sound very important.

    Good for him, Wildstar is looking awesome. I've been watching dungeon vids today, they look amazing.


    One of those beams one-shots you and the circles do a daze effect thing.

    On topic, I'm sure he'll be back to WoW soon enough, considering that Wildstar is coming out in June and WoD isn't coming out until fall that should give him plenty of time to do a bunch of stuff in other games before the expansion releases.

    Never liked his style, so don't watch him. If he wants to switch WoW to Wildstar, good for him. Might move his wonderful fanbase away. I just have a feeling he'll come running back to WoW when WoD comes.

    I've watched him from time to time, he is one of the better streamers that actually tried to interact with his audience rather then Swifty and Bajheera (although he is a bit better)

    WoW is in a slump right now so it is to be expected that some streamers will focus on other games to keep their viewership up

    I have yet to meet a single WoW Streamer I thought deserved my viewership, they all screamed, demanded donations, and acted like children. It was pathetic. I can almost say with certainty though that the reason he is switching is because he is getting given incentive to switch. Wildstar Developers have asked quite a few streamers to switch to them and is giving them free beta access in return. Its just a PR Move.

    In all honesty if he doesn't come back he will not be missed

    I'd say it's a pretty heavy blow for Blizzard. They also lost Kungen, and usually when these guys quit they're very opionated and sell a lot of negative advertisement for WoW.

    That said though, even Kungen came back for MoP, and most likely Sodapoppin too will feel the temptation arise later this year.

    im not surprised, i would be so bored playing the game 10hours a day for 8 years or what ever it is, im surprised he didn't quit earlier.
    Too cool for a signature

    Never liked him. Glad to here that Swifty will have less competition now.

    With WoD not coming out until months more down the line, I imagine he just wants something new to do rather than the same old stuff. He can also tap into the Wildstar viewers that may evem stay should he flip back to WoW for WoD.

    Personally, the guy annoys me like nothing else lol It was a watch once and never again sort of thing really. I find most WoW streamers are like that.

    Rarely updated...

    wait what? from what i've seen wildstar is such a let down, such a standard-whatever mmo. nothing special at all.
    I can't understand all the hype going on about it. I'm pretty positive it's going to end just like every other mmo that came out in the last few years.

    Wildstar , another "boat" that won't make it to the end.Just my opinion.

    It will survive. Although I don't personally like the theme, Wildstar is a really well-made game. It's worth giving a chance if you like sci-fi MMOs.

    It's a decent game, but propably too much of a niche to find a very large audience.

    Have you seen a dungeon encounter like that in WoW? Like...ever? Watch the vid, those guys make it look easy.

    I enjoyed the game in beta testing, I think the game will do fine for itself. 40 man raids and difficult dungeon content won't appeal to everyone, however; it will be more of a niche market.

    Saying a single streamer on twitch who is no longer playing the game is a heavy blow to Blizzard as a whole is a bit silly in my opinion..
