TimTheTatman hilariously roasted following Ninja's book announcement

Twitch star Tyler ‘Ninja‘ Blevins is releasing a new book teaching people how to improve at games and streaming and Sypher ‘SypherPK’ Ali wants to make sure Tim ‘TimTheTatman‘ Betar gets a free copy.

Ninja has continued to build his brand outside of Twitch in 2019 with a clothing line, his face appearing on Red Bull cans and now he has a book releasing in August. 

The book is a guide to helping gamers get better at their craft and features a variety of tips for building strategy and improving your game sense in video games.

TimTheTatman, InstagramTim and Ninja are good friends in real life.

According to the book’s pre-order page, it’s designed for ages 10 and up but SypherPK feels like Tim could certainly use a copy of the book, basically saying Tim still needs to greatly improve his play.


It’s a running joke among the streaming community that Tim is bad at video games, but sometimes it doesn’t feel like it’s even a joke. Fall damage has been mockingly referred to as “Tim damage” due to his tendency to die to fall damage in matches.

Tim responded to Sypher’s tweet with nothing but confusion, likely wondering why these shots were being taken. Anyone who is a fan of the big streamers definitely knows where Sypher is coming from.

It’s no secret that despite Tim’s mega-popularity on Twitch, he has never been quite to the level of pro players, but he is able to hold his own in many games.


Jokes aside, Tim might actually receive a free copy of the book since he is good friends with Ninja in real life. 

We don’t yet know what contents Ninja’s book will hold, but who knows, maybe it will help Tim and the rest of us become better players.
