ORIGINAL ARTICLE (February 2018):
No(se), this isn't the kind of headline we'd be expecting to write either.
Blizzard have put British League of Legends streamer Ali "Gross Gore" Larsen in World of Warcraft (WoW).
Streamer Asmongold stumbled upon an NPC named 'Grozgore' while playing the alpha of Battle for Azeroth, the upcoming expansion to World of Warcraft.
Grozgore is standing in front of what looks like some kind of demonic altar, and is joined by two Tamed Boars.
The rare NPC mob displays as 'Grozgore' on the mini-map, but is listed as unknown when selected, though that's probably just due to the expansion being in alpha at the moment.

Blizzard has a history of putting gaming personalities and celebrities into World of Warcraft.
The late actor Robin Williams was placed into WoW back in 2014, in the form of the genie from Disney move Aladdin, whom Williams voiced.
Blizzard also added Ian Bates, aka the 'red shirt guy', into the game as an NPC known as 'Wildhammer Fact Checker'.
Ian Bates became known for pointing out a factual inaccuracy within World of Warcraft lore at a Blizzard panel session at Blizzcon back in 2010, and videos of him asking the developer similar questions have received millions of views since.
