Overwatch streamer Francine ‘Fran’ Vo recently shared the hilarious story of how an early morning email was the beginning of her getting signed as a streamer for the Atlanta Reign.
Fran has streamed Overwatch since around the time the game came out and has consistently been one of the game’s most popular streamers.
Recently she was part of the Blizzard streamer partnership and got to stream from Blizzard HQ with Overwatch Developers, she even got to play Ashe at BlizzCon 2018 with the one and only Jeff Kaplan.
The first contact she received from the Atlanta Reign came as an email at 2:30 in the morning, she told viewers on stream.
“It says: ‘Hi I am the owner of the Atlanta Overwatch League team, and I want you to be part of the stream team,’ and then at the bottom, it says ‘Sent from iPhone,’” Fran explained to chat. “I’m over here like, who is this schmuck, with this fake-ass email? This guy’s trying to troll me.”
The email turned out to be legit, though, and a little bit later Fran was meeting with Atlanta Reign staff to talk about becoming a streamer.
“They’re really into having women working in esports,” Fran told her viewers about the Reign’s management. “They were about that life and I loved it, it made me so happy.”
