Asmongold Takes a Break from Streaming After Abrupt End to Recent Diablo IV Stream

Asmongold Twitter

The gates of hell have opened as Diablo IV is now available to those who have purchased the game. To celebrate this momentous event, popular Twitch streamer Asmongold recently streamed the game to his legion of loyal followers. But fans were left wondering why the stream ended abruptly, which caused some to speculate about Asmon's well-being. Fortunately, the famous streamer has finally given a statement regarding what happened.

Why the Stream Suddenly Ended

In a recent Reddit post, Asmon told his fans that the reason why he randomly stopped streaming Diablo IV was due to stress and anxiety. He said that he slept for three hours after a grueling 13-hour marathon stream session, and he woke up only to be overcome with dread and anticipation. He added that he hasn't played Diablo IV again after that stream even though he was so excited about its release.

The popular streamer went on to say that he took multiple steps to fix the problem: from medication to talking to peers/friends. However, these things haven't yielded a positive result.

While things may seem dire at the moment, Asmon did say that he's going to the Games Expo on June 10 and will be streaming the event on his main channel. After that, he's not going to stream on that channel until he's mentally ready.

He concluded his post by saying that he's going to provide a more thorough explanation about this once he's figured things out. This revelation is quite concerning since this is not the first time that Asmon has suffered from a panic attack.

Hopefully, he gets the help that he needs so that he can get back on track.

Who is He?

Zack "Asmongold" Hoyt is a massively popular Twitch streamer and YouTuber who has amassed a loyal following, mainly due to his hot takes about games and life in general. He currently has 3.4 million followers on Twitch and 1.88 million subscribers on YouTube at the time of writing. He has an alternate channel called "zackrawrr" as well. Even though this channel is more of a casual thing where he streams games just for fun, it still got 1.3 million followers, which is pretty insane.

He is also the co-owner of OTK (One True King) - an organization based out of Austin, Texas that was established with the goal of creating a network of like-minded individuals, along with Emily "Emiru" Schunk, Matthew "Mizkif" Renaudo, and Rich Campbell, among others.
