It’s no secret that team-based games like Overwatch can get toxic from time to time – but for one couple, the game brought about a meeting that would change their lives for the better.

Reddit user “You-Done” posted a heartwarming story to the Overwatch subreddit on October 31, explaining how she met her husband through the team-based first-person shooter.

Her tale began after a breakup with a previous partner, during which she drowned her sorrows in Competitive (we feel you, girl).

Also being rather smitten by McCree (again, understandable – look at that stache), You-Done joined the Twitch community of a popular fan artist, where she met “a man” that she described as “kind and funny, and he, too, liked Overwatch.”

The two quickly hit it off and began to play Overwatch together – and, while their story might seem like a gamer’s fairy tale, not everything was perfect, thanks to the major distance between them.

You-Done, RedditAs it turns out, Overwatch makes more matches than pairing players for games.

With You-Done hailing from Germany and the object of her affections living in Australia, getting together for games proved to be a bit of a challenge – but she didn’t let time zones get in their way.

“…the nine hours time difference made our gaming sessions difficult,” You-Done admitted. “But we had our priorities set. We would from then on play Overwatch together every weekend, for months. Due to timezones we’d often only stop when it was crack of dawn for one of us.”

You-Done, RedditThese two Overwatch enthusiasts found love through their favorite game.

Then, a golden opportunity came for the couple: You-Done discovered she had annual leave for work, and took the paid time off to visit her amour for three weeks, which she claimed were nothing short of “magical.”

“After those three weeks we had to make a decision – it was all or nothing for us,” she explained. “And we went ALL IN. My husband handed in his notice, packed a single suitcase, and came to live with me in Germany.”

You-Done, RedditYou-Done and her Overwatch amour tied the knot in August 2018, proving that love knows no bounds – whether distance or Overwatch main.

The two got married in August 2018 and, a year later, welcomed their first child – a joyous development that, in retrospect, was all thanks to Overwatch and the gutsy decision of two star-crossed gamers.

As You-Done says, “Sometimes fate hits you hard, and suddenly,” marking a happy ending to a heartwarming love story.

Nothing stopped her fans from speculating about some of the reasons why she might have disabled her account, which had around 16.2 million followers, and 158.4 million clip likes.

Although she didn’t address the situation directly, Millie appeared to post a short explanation to her Instagram story, saying “realizing that surrounding yourself with positivity is the happiest way of living! No hate, and only love. Remember to be kind. Thank you.”

It’s not the first time Brown has deleted a social media account either. She deleted her Twitter account all the way back in 2018 due to a series of “disgusting” memes, and she may very well have done the same this time around too.

Of course, her TikTok videos will be sorely missed. They always managed to brighten people’s days. Still, it’s important to remember there’s an actual person behind the spotlight.
