Why Asmongold streams on a second account, and is a third next?

For the past few months, Asmongold has been active on his second account on Twitch while neglecting his main one. There’s one big reason for that, and it could lead to his moving to a third channel next.

Zack “Asmongold” is a streamer whose content primarily focuses on gaming, though it’s by no means limited to that as he has broken into producing reaction videos and other types of content. Asmongold initially garnered popularity among fans with his World of Warcraft content. Since then, he has broadened his circle by being one of the founding members of media organization One True King and of Starforge, a custom PC-building company.  But as of late, the streamer hasn’t been active on his main Twitch account.

Fans have been wondering why Asmongold doesn’t use his main account, and he has provided an answer for it. And that answer has prompted the question of whether the streamer will abandon his second account in favor of a third one for the same reason. 

Why does Asmongold stream on a second channel?

Asmongold made his second streaming channel, called zackrawrr, because using his main streaming account “stresses him out.”

Zack abandoned his first Twitch channel in July 2022 in favor of a second account called zackrawrr, which now has 1.7 million followers compared to the original  Asmongold channel’s 3.5 million. While his second account has about half as many followers as his first one, the streamer shows no signs of wanting to return to his old account as he insists that the larger following causes him stress.

Zack doesn’t give any specific details about the nature of his stress or why he feels the way he does about his first account, but his apparent best option is to just go to his alternate account, where it’s a more stress-free experience for him. 

In addition to playing the games he wants on that channel, Zack frequently gives his two cents about happenings in the gaming and streaming communities at large. With a more lax setting, the streamer has also gone on-stream without a webcam to play games like World of Warcraft without personally addressing the community. 

Will Asmongold make a third streaming account?

Asmongold has not announced any plans to make a third streaming account, despite some fan predictions that he would.

Fans of Asmongold have for some time predicted that the streamer would make a third channel to again get away from the “stress” of streaming to a large following, particularly as he’s continuing to get into controversies.

While the zackrawrr account has grown a big fanbase in its own right, making a third channel would likely just repeat the cycle as his active followers will eventually move there. For a change of pace, Zack could just move to a different streaming platform altogether, such as YouTube.

The only mention the streamer made of a third account was when he posted on X saying he wanted to make a third account just to stream himself sleeping. However, that was likely more in jest and not evidence of Zack seriously considering the move.
