There are a few spots on several Overwatch maps players can get somewhat stuck in, Overwatch streamer Calvin ‘Aimbotcalvin’ Chau found this out in the funniest way possible while playing Widowmaker on the Ilios Lighthouse stage.

While defending the point with Widowmaker, Calvin gets into a side battle with the enemy Wrecking Ball and after grappling to get a better vantage point, he finds himself stuck between the Ilios roofs.

As he slides off of the roof, the streamer reassures his team “I’m good, I’m good, don’t worry about it, I’m good,” while laughing hysterically. 

He stops just before falling off the roof and turns around to see the enemy Hammond has decided to join him and be stuck on the roofs, too.

This causes Calvin to absolutely lose it, right before the opposing Hammond decides to help him get off the roof by eliminating the streamer.

Plenty of players have gotten stuck on the Ilios roofs before, some even use them to get around, but this clip from Calvin has to be one of the funniest situations ever captured up there.

Calvin, who’s competed in Overwatch tournaments in the past, said he recently turned down a substantial offer to enter the Overwatch League and is choosing to remain a streamer and entertainer going forward.

The Overwatch community is rallying behind a 26-year-old player who passed away earlier in October after defending a woman from a man who allegedly broke into her home with a knife.

Tiago de Souza, who reportedly played thousands of hours and mained Hanzo, Pharah, Sigma, McCree and Doomfist, reportedly gave his life to save a friend and her daughters.

According to Brazilian media, Tiago was at the woman’s house when her ex-partner broke in with a knife in-hand, trying to attack her.

Investigators say the suspect beat the woman with punches. When Tiago tried to interfere, he was allegedly stabbed and died on the spot.

The suspect later went to the police station in Prudentópolis on his own accord and was detained.

A petition on the website Avaaz describes Tiago as “very fond of science and questioning the mysteries of the universe.”

“He liked several games, but undoubtedly his passion was Overwatch,” the petition continued, noting how he had unlocked four golden guns for different heroes through competitive play.

Tiago enjoyed playing as Hanzo.

“Tiago was an incredible, selfless and generous person, who gave his life to save someone else’s,” the petition said. “We, friends and family, do not want your courageous attitude to be forgotten, and nothing better to honor you than with a tribute in your favorite game.”

So far, over 2,000 people have signed the petition asking Blizzard to honor the player, though they didn’t specify on how they would like the company to pay tribute to Tiago.

Potentially, if Blizzard were going to honor the player, they could do so on the Brazilian Lucio Ball map for the Summer Games event, or even something from Overwatch 2, whenever that game is released.

Blizzard does have a decent track record of honoring its players. Notably, Blizzard immortalized the streamer Reckful by adding a Rogue Trainer NPC with his gamer tag in World of Warcraft.

Hopefully, Blizzard can continue this trend an honor the Brazilian player.
