Jack ‘CouRageJD’ Dunlop, a popular gaming entertainer in his own right, believes his Twitch counterpart Tim ‘TimTheTatman’ Betar is currently the best streamer out there.

When it comes to streaming in the world of gaming, there is a small echelon of people who are several rungs of the ladder higher than everyone else.

Two of those entertainers are Tim and CouRage, with the latter’s rise to prominence leading to them becoming very good friends and often playing games together live on stream.

When asked about his thoughts on the current crop of streamers during an exclusive interview with Dexerto at Dreamhack Atlanta in partnership with Chipotle, CouRage named Tim as the “best” one, an opinion that millions of others share

“Overall, I think the best streamer, in regards to his humor and what he can do, I think is Tim,” he said.

CouRage - TwitterCouRage and TimTheTatman have been close friends ever since the former CoD caster became a full-time streamer.

Why CouRage believes Tim is the “best” streamer

In CouRage’s eyes, TimTheTatman possesses the skill set and all of the qualities that a streamer needs to be truly successful and entertaining.

“I might inflate his ego a little but TimTheTatman is the epitome of a streamer in his house just playing games, funny, self-deprecating,” he explained.

In reality, when speaking about Tim, CouRage could have easily been describing himself, because most, if not all of those qualities certainly apply to him as well.

That’s probably why the former Call of Duty caster found so much success in such a short period of time since moving to full-time streaming, because much like his Twitch counterpart, he too knows how to keep a large audience entertained while still be able to focus on the games he’s playing.

CouRage and TimTheTatman – a fast-flourishing friendship

One of the many reasons why CouRage was able to quickly rise to prominence as a full-time streamer was his friendship with Tim and several of the other big stars.

The two have collaborated together on countless occasions, had many hilarious back-and-forths on social media, and, along with DrLupo, were part of the exclusive few who got invited to Ninja’s New Years celebration in New York City last year.

It’s safe to say that as far as big streamers go, few are closer friends than these two, so it’s not a huge surprise Jack would name Tim as the best streamer right now.

A new game-breaking bug is making the rounds in Call of Duty: Warzone, allowing players to abuse unlimited Stim Shots and survive permanently in the gas for easy, unfair wins on Verdansk. Fortunately, Infinity Ward have confirmed they’re fixing it.

Imagine surviving until the very end of a battle royale, evading toxic gas and dangerous opponents to stand alone in the final circle as the last remaining team and presumptive victors. Then you look at the top of your screen and realize there’s another team still alive, possibly more, but you can’t see them in the circle.

That’s been the experience for many of Warzone’s players over the past couple days, as a new glitch is allowing exploitative players to survive in the green fog of the game’s gas for as long as they want with an unlimited supply of Stim Shots. Teams that respect the rules are losing out to sly gas goblins.

On the plus side, this shouldn’t remain an issue for too much longer, as the developers have confirmed they are aware of the glitch and working on a solution.

Much of the Call of Duty fanbase is thrilled that the fixes for the glitched AS VAL SSP 10-R mags and SP-R .300 Norma and .338 Lapua mags were finally deployed on October 8. The two weapons were broken and unbearable for players given the former’s ability to kill through multiple walls and the latter’s capacity to remain hitscan within 450 meters of range.

But, while those nerfs came through within just around a week of Modern Warfare and Warzone’s Season 6 update, the community may not be comfortable waiting as long for a fix to the unlimited Stim Shot glitch. 

At the moment, popular streamers and competitive players seem to have joined the masses in expressing serious frustration with the glitch. Among others, Call of Duty League caster Clint ‘Maven’ Evans has criticized the bug for numerous dissatisfying losses.

While not wanting to spread exactly how the glitch is performed and widen its presence, it is not particularly difficult to achieve and simply requires three items: a frag, a stim, and a self-revive kit. As such, it presents one of the game’s more notorious bugs and should be a major priority for a quick patch.

At the moment, Infinity Ward have confirmed a fix is in the works and that it remains “in progress” according to the team’s Trello board. As always, we will update as soon as things change, but, for now, remember to keep an eye on the gas when you deploy in Verdansk.
