Popular Twitch streamer Timothy ‘TimTheTatman’ Betar has revealed the difficulty behind swapping games as a prominent content creator, even mocking the attitude of some Twitch viewers. 

Betar is a veteran of the streaming world, having established his Twitch channel way back in 2012. Now, thanks mainly to the popularity of Epic Games’ Fortnite, Betar runs the sixth most followed account on all of Twitch.

Recently, like many other content creators on Twitch, Tim has shifted away from Fortnite, citing a number of issues that have caused the game to decline in popularity. However, on April 15, the 30-year-old revealed the difficulties of changing titles as an established streamer.

Tim is known for his interactions with other streaming powerhouses, like Ninja and CouRage.

In a video posted to the streamer’s Twitter, he revealed the difficulties that come with changing titles, including the potential backlash of viewers who have grown accustomed to seeing a certain game being played.

“Every time I make a major switch,” he said, “Call of Duty: Black Ops II, very beginning of my stream, [I] started to play Counter Strike. People came in: ‘Dude, you’re not playing Call of Duty anymore? Whatever bro. Okay dude. That game made you. This stream’s gonna die now.'”

He repeated the impersonations for his transition from Counter Strike to Overwatch, and then from Overwatch to Fortnite.

“Fortnite back to Call of Duty,” he finished. “‘Dude! You’re not playing Fortnite anymore dude!? That game made you!’ And now here we are, playing some Valorant. ‘Dude!'”

In essence, Tim is criticizing Twitch viewers for their attitudes when streamers switch games. It is only natural that streamers sometimes grow bored or frustrated of certain games, and want to try their hand at something else.

Regardless, Tim’s ability to transition between titles and maintain his trademark humility and talent is one of the main reasons he has been able to stay at the top of Twitch, even after his departure from Fortnite. We don’t think he’s going anywhere.

Rapper Future has had an incredible career spanning over several decades. In that time, he’s risen through the ranks to become a household name in the rap/hip-hop genres. Now, he’s revealed the latest addition to his garage in the form of this crazy one-off Chevrolet Blazer.

Future – real name Nayvadius DeMun Wilburn – is an American rap artist from Atlanta, Georgia. In his time as a musician, he has amassed a number of awards and released several critically-acclaimed albums and tracks.

With a car collection including Lamborghinis, Rolls-Royces, and Bentleys, he has now revealed his latest addition.

Standing out from his collection of ‘typical’ exotic cars, Future has now taken delivery of his custom-commissioned Chevrolet K5 Blazer truck from renowned tuners RingBrothers.

This fully-restored, one-off build looks absolutely incredible and will stand out among Future’s other ‘stock’ cars. Finished in British Racing Green, this is a color that was not available from factory, and was used only for his personal build.

The exterior has been left mostly stock other than the color change, but the front headlights have been upgraded to LED units. Not only have the headlights been changed, but also the wheels – the stock items being replaced by a set of 18″ gold HRE wheels.

Inside, the car has been completely re-trimmed in brown leather, with a number of embossed logos throughout. The factory analog dials have been refreshed, but a 10″ touchscreen has been fitted to the dash. This is coupled to an uprated JL audio system – a key upgrade for a musician such as Future.

Future unveiled the truck on his Instagram:

Underneath the hood is the biggest upgrade to the car – a complete engine and transmission swap. The stock motor has been ditched for a 6.2l LS3 V8, coupled to an uprated GM automatic transmission. With 430hp on tap, Future will have plenty of fun driving this custom truck around.

RingBrothers co-owner Mike Ring is justifiably proud of the result: “We’re humbled that people continue to come to us for special projects like this.”

“We realize that our customers could get a new Ferrari or Lamborghini but choose us instead. It’s an honor we don’t take lightly, so we put our heart into each project. We’re glad Future appreciates that.”
