    I watched to learn about the expansion. Asmon asked thoughtful questions, Ion for once answered plainly instead of total lawyerspeak.

    All in all, great interview, and if you think your opinion of a YouTuber means jack squat to Blizz, you have no idea how marketing, PR and business work.

    Michael Jordan grew up in Chicago and has voted Democrat his whole life - but he never talked about it, because "Republicans buy sneakers too."

    You don't have to watch Asmon, that's fine. Blizz wants to sell more games, and appealing to the broadest possible base is in their financial interest, and ultimately yours, because if the proof of concept for an engaging expansion not focused on bullcrap to keep you playing because you have to succeeds, we will see more of it in the future.

    It's more telling about you LMAO.

    The fact that neither you nor anyone else whining about Asmongold's existence has actually criticised his style of interview or his content is telling a lot. All people write here is say how much they hate him (because they are too stupid to know what sarcasm or playing a character is) without writing anything that is actually true in any case.

    Is an Asmongold inside joke.
    One or even many of his streams he says:

    "You know what would be funny? If someone asked Blizzard about the sword and they would be like...WHAT SWORD? Completely ignoring the whole thing even happened in the first place"

    And the moment became a reality with Ion.

    Also the idea that all he does is a dogshit ass game tirades about wow all the time is false. He always has a ton of good will for wow but the shilloids like to stick to the 2 clips they saw about him.
    Okay, I might've been off base with the term usual, it isn't too frequently that he does it, and it is usually whenever Blizzard has done something out of touch with what the community wants.
    I hope I didn't come across as a mindless " Huuurh Asmongold bad " drone, I am well aware that he isn't just mindlessly shitting on the game for the sake of clicks or whatever it is people say about people who are critical of the direction wow has been going the past two expansions.

    ie: Sargeras stabs the entire planet, but the intro of Dragonflight says "the world is healing". It's still got a giant fuckoff sword stabbed in it, completely unresolved, that no one is talking about.
    Didn't they say that we resolved it? We cleansed it of the corruption that was actually killing the planet by draining all of our artifact weapons, and now it's effectively just a big splinter, relatively harmless?

    Great interview. Also this is one of best threads on MMO champ, lots of entertainment.

    If they're removing borrowed power there goddamn better be more gear drops throughout the entire game, We need more gear to drop not less. It's $21 a month Canadian to play this game, more than any other mmo on the market and the rest are not even close to as stingy with loot like wow is.

    You can turn off emotes from appearing in chat. If all he said was spam /spit, and people go further than that, it's a lot harder to put the blame on him when people do indeed go further. Did he light the flame that eventually led to a forest fire? Sure, but it was idiots who poured gasoline on it.

    Put another way, he was criticizing Blizzard and the people throwing money at them in a way he disagreed with by being up-front and personal with the people doing the buying. It was meant to stop there, a very obvious way to show your displeasure at the group causing perceived problems with the game you enjoy that can be easily ignored, but would at least be something the person on the receiving end would be aware of.

    Then the more rabid parts of his fanbase took that and ran with it, turning into serial harassers and absolutely going too far.

    You might not consider it a 'noble cause', but Asmon wasn't trying to get people chased out of the game, or have people whispering them harassment, at least not from what I can tell.

    Lolwut. You really must not watch his streams. He absolutely reveals his life, talking about what he does and streaming it sometimes too. Whether its avoiding the cops because he hasn't gotten his car inspected for years, shopping at the local thrift stores for clothes, or only knowing how to make steak and potatoes. What do you want, someone to follow him around with a camera 24/7?

    Such an odd reason to point out why you need more gear lol. Different games have different gearing systems, kinda how it works.

    It just blows my mind that Asmongold can only be chatting on his Twitch stream and he'll have 80k-90k people watching. I'm not hating on him. He can definitely be interesting to listen to.

    Most things will be account wide.. Man i hope you keep that promise. Master Loot being brought back.. once again.. It should been an option Master loot or personal loot.

    That would be amazing, also I haven’t played in a minute so forgive me but is there any catch up mechanic when it comes to gearing alts? Or is the gearing process essentially the same pace as your main

    Michael Jordan didn’t grow up in Chicago, and as far as I know he’s critiqued both Republicans and Democrats and has never mentioned his political affiliation.

    What does borrowed power have to do with gear?

    and then they were mocking classic and season of mastery

    is this is what PR department wanted to happen - well they succeded

    what a beutiful disaster
    What rubbish, you've just pulled that and manipulated it to fit your agenda.

    Asmon did say the PR contacted them and that they did approve his questions beforehand, BUT he also said in the same sentence that they approved all the questions he submitted and that because it was only 30 minutes beforehand that they wanted to make sure they were prepared to be able to best answer his questions. Asmon literally agreed with their approach. The context of that reveal was literally one of positive review towards Blizzard and how they went about it.

    Rich: "They approved our list in 30 minutes, it was the easiest it's ever been to set up an interview and the whole thing was a really pleasant experience"

    You: OMG pre-approved they clearly dont care and just trying to talk about what they want ... yeah, no.

    It's honestly quite irritating that people will just spout stuff like you have and take things completely out of context.

    They did talk about FF14 yes and some negatives of WoW but were providing critique and how they feel it would be improved. It was clearly intended as a grey area where they were talking about the best and worst parts of WoW, not just mocking everything.

    Not to mention that Rich confirmed that they were the ones that reached out and it was surprisingly easy to set it up. Apparently the new community manager is super friendly with them. This did not happen due to blizzard action. But due to asmons. As I said, I not really a big fan of the guy, but the interview was good and they took the necessary steps to bridge the gap.

    The commenters who are against Ion interviewing Asmon, have basically branded themvelves as simple minded people who have strong opinions on things they dont fully research or understand. Asmon is good for the community. I dont watch any streamer but ive seen enough to understand that part of his fan base are "toxic, and he always puts them in their place. Hes a genuinine guy who doesnt filter his opinions through the lens of "is anyone going to get offended. And there is plenty of WoW influencers who do just the opposite. Saying that there is no room for someone like Asmon as an influencer is a an opinion of a person who i would want nothing to do with in real life full of themselves and missing the bigger picture

    It's more telling about me that I think that dismissing all criticism of someone as jealousy is lazy and silly? Okay. People are free to dislike anyone or anything that you personally like for any reason that they want to and it doesn't have to stem from jealousy. I'm also not sure why you're lumping me in with people who you think are "whining about his existence." - I'm more or less indifferent to Asmongold. I don't go out of my way to watch his content, but I'll watch it if someone posts it and the subject matter is interesting enough. Most of the time that I see videos of his linked he's complaining about the game though, and I understand why people could find that annoying. This particular interview was REALLY dull and that had nothing to do with Asmongold's character. You could have replaced him with any other creator with the same questions and it would have been just as dull.
