The popular twitch streamer Asmongold used to be known mainly for WoW, but is now playing Final Fantasy 14 again. He actually really liked the MMORPG, but he doesn’t get along with some fans of the game – and is therefore threatening to stream it stop.
It’s been nine months since Asmongold played Final Fantasy 14, but now the popular Twitch streamer has started streaming his adventures in the Square Enix MMORPG again. He’s now at the start of the Stormblood expansion and would like to continue playing. But at the same time he threatens his viewers: He could also stop streaming – the reason for this is fans of Final Fantasy 14.

Lots of Final Fantasy trolls – Asmongold loses interest in the game
In a Twitch stream, Asmongold explained that his comeback to Final Fantasy 14 didn’t go as well as he had hoped. “I don’t want my stream to go back to being a Final Fantasy stream. I don’t want every post on my subreddit to be about Final Fantasy and everything else get downvoted and people get mad if I don’t play it .” So, Final Fantasy 14 fans seem to be putting themselves far too front and center for Asmongold’s liking. He also describes them as “very restrictive” and “super disgusting”.
Finally, he says in his video that he would like to play the game (on stream) without people having problems with it. But if it continued like this, he wouldn’t play it anymore. “I don’t want anything to do with that. Why should I voluntarily get involved in something I don’t enjoy?” On Sunday, July 3, 2022, he dedicated himself to the game Cuphead in the stream – when he next plays Final Fantasy 14 is unclear.
