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.

Popular League of Legends streamer Robert ‘Hashinshin’ Brotz has claimed the FBI investigated him over allegations he was sexually harassing minors, and cleared him of any wrongdoing. He was permanently banned on Twitch over the claims.

Hashinshin was ostracized from the League of Legends community back in July, after claims the 30-year-old Twitch streamer sexually harassed underage girls by abusing his platform of power.

Other popular content creators, like Joedat ‘Voyboy’ Esfahani, stated that “Hashinshin is a manipular, predator, and worst of all [a] pedophile who used his platform to abuse so many underage girls over the years.”

However, the disgraced streamer has claimed he was investigated by the FBI and cleared of all wrongdoing.

“There has been an FBI investigation into me, and I have neither been jailed or charged with a crime. Some of you might not believe that. I have a freedom of information request [to prove my innocence publicly], but that can take up to a year,” Brotz said in a October 7 statement.

Numerous women came forward stories in July of Hashinshin grooming them while they were underage. However, Hashinshin has always maintained his innocence, claiming these stories were false, and that many of those who came forward have since deleted their statements.

He also stated that he was potentially looking into suing some of the alleged victims for defamation, stating they did a “public assessment of [his] character” that distorted what people thought of him.

“I was going to sue Alli for defamation ⁠— and I probably should have ⁠— but Alli is not a victim, and people started getting these really distorted views on what was happening,” he said, referring to one of the victims.

“Things aren’t as they seem, regardless of what they seem. I’m not a rich and powerful figure. They didn’t find that I did anything. I think a lot of this was a public assessment of my character, and a lot of people did this because they didn’t like me.

“I’ve been working on bettering myself over the last two years, and I think I’ve become a better person overall. It hurts a lot…to see all these people denying that.”

Brotz claimed that while he believed his accusers weren’t “all terrible people,” they betrayed his trust. He also said that while he believes they should apologize, he hopes no one in the community attacks them. He just wants to “go back to living a normal life.”

“I thought these were nice people, I thought I could trust them and work with them. That’s why my response to this was all sh*tty because I shouldn’t really have trusted anyone. I don’t think they’re all terrible people, but things really escalated,” he said.

“I don’t want anyone to attack them. I just want to go back to living a normal life. I just want to exist peacefully, and I hope people can start letting me do that. I hope this can change their minds in some way.”

Hashinshin remains permanently banned on Twitch despite his attempts to clear this name. He has also lost his Twitch partnership, and has instead moved to streaming on YouTube.
