Mar 4, 2021 AsmongoldTV took a break from streaming. "A lot of the reasons I took a break, especially towards the end is, I mean a really big reason is
burnout. I think that I was just extremely burned out from screaming and this had been kind of building up for a while."
His IRL friends and friends that he knows online could kind of tell that he was getting fed up.
After playing World of Warcraft for 15 years, Asmongold said that he probably felt like he was wasting his time for only about 20 days.
He says, "I think that taking breaks
does give me the ability to mentally reset and then also to redirect myself and the direction that I want to take my content."
In a recent video, he addressed some of his reasons and said this: "One of the big reasons why I took a break is I've had a lot of really bad, personal (**it) going on in my life and I've tried to keep a lot of this offstream."
Asmongold said that he was having fun, but over the past few months he was feeling aimless and directionless - wasting time and not doing what his audience deserved.
During his break he talked about the fun of playing games like Valheim (playing 200 hours) . "I want to try to step outside of doing my normal content and actually trying to do things a little bit different and really try to give it the old college try - actually try to make good content about other games - really try to enjoy other games."
Ashes of Creation:
"I've found that whenever I take these breaks, I'm always surfing around trying to find that next game that's going to give me that feeling. By the way, guys, it's going to be nice because in just a couple weeks now, we're going to have Ashes of Creation Alpha, which is going to be non-NDA. I will be playing
that on stream and I'm very excited about that!"
Asmongold, we are looking forward to your streams!

Crafting will not be available in Ashes of Creation Alpha One. According to Steven Shariff, CEO and Creative Director, "Crafting, honestly will not come online in any sense of it's true form until Alpha Two."
In an interview with the Ashen Forge (Ep 46) Steven said:
"Alpha One has essentially what are intended to be the core loop of crafting meaning the collection of materials, the translation of those materials into processed goods, and then the use of those processed goods into item acquisition."
"That's the core gameplay loop that's currently present in Alpha One, but those are mostly facilitated, kind of piggybacking the merchant systems right now, and not actually using the real crafting system and that's just because crafting hasn't been completed in a form that can be implemented in Alpha One, but it will be for Alpha Two. So what's present in Alpha One doesn't really scratch the surface of crafting."
One day in Feb...
Steven Sharif - four years ago on Feb 26 - gave an epic speech as Sorcerer, guild leader of The White Order in Archeage, to an alliance that included Tea Time For Kittens. He gave the speech before a siege battle. ..
In an interview with The Lazy Peon in May of 2017 Steven said, "I will admit, I like to RP a little bit. RPG is a huge part of the MMO experience. That's why it's an MMORPG genre. I think it's fun for my community, my guild, to experience their leader doing a little RP speech before the battle. Actually I took that speech from Independence Day; I just kinda changed it to be more reflective of the game."
Why Create Ashes of Creation?
Steven Sharif, Creative Director, said: "I spent the last 25 years of my life being a gamer. The genre that always interested me the most was the MMORPG genre. It's something about the aspect of that massive community that you really don't experience anywhere else in any other game. The ability to interact with thousands of people from across the world... People who you would never have gotten to meet or spoken with before."
"As my gaming history progressed, I got to play pretty much every MMORPG under the sun and I just loved, always, that community aspect of what made MMO's great.
Over the past several years I was kinda upset with the way that the industry was treating this genre. It became like super pay to win and this total cash grab atmosphere and it felt like they were not putting in the tender love and care that the genre was deserving and I wanted to change that. I wanted to represent the gamers' passion from a developers perspective."
