Asmongold announces week-long break from streaming on Twitch

World of Warcraft star and iconic Twitch streamer, Asmongold, announced that he would be taking a week-long break from streaming on Twitch for personal reasons in order to "recalibrate" himself.
Asmongold is undoubtedly one of the most popular streamers on Twitch and is beloved by many members of the World of Warcraft community. Earlier this month, Asmongold revealed that a big part of him wants to quit streaming on Twitch after he revealed that it was becoming unenjoyable for him.

While Asmongold does not appear to be throwing in the towel just yet, the Twitch star did announce that he would be taking a week-long break from the streaming platform.

Asmongold announced that while he's unsure "what the hell is wrong" with him, he feels "really weird about streaming". He proclaimed not to know why he feels this way, adding that "it doesn't make logical sense".

"I'm going to take a week off and try to recalibrate myself," the Twitch star said before apologizing for letting his fans down. "I'll be back afterwards," he added.

In a follow-up tweet, Asmongold put speculation to bed by saying: "A lot of this is personal and I need to figure it out on my own. I love you guys and I want to be the best version of myself for you."

Fans ultimately supported Asmongold's decision and spammed his thread with words of encouragement. One Twitter user said:

"We want you to be happy, Zack! First and foremost and those that give a s*** about you mean it when we say you’ll figure things out soon. Even if you stream less or stop in the future the messages you gave to your community extend much farther. Hang in there, man!"

Another user correctly pointed out that it's been a rather crazy week for the WoW star, as well as several other streamers on Twitch. "Between that, the WoW news, AllCraft, D&D, and being heavily criticized all in one week, I honestly don't blame you for needing time to yourself," the user noted.

Asmongold previously noted that he was close to burning out from streaming well before he started the Final Fantasy 14 series. It's therefore understandable that he feels the way he does and we concur with his decision to step away to look after his physical and mental health.

Hopefully, Asmongold will return to streaming feeling recharged and ready for more epic adventures in Azeroth. We wish him all the best as he takes a most well-deserved break from streaming.

In the meantime, you can watch his latest video on YouTube, which we have embedded for your viewing consideration below.
