Overwatch streamer ‘ShawnEz’ got a hilarious answer to a question he asked a teammate on stream who was using a soundboard to imitate Overwatch Director Jeff Kaplan.

Kaplan has become the face of Overwatch for many fans, with some players even calling for his face to be included in the game as a spray.

Overwatch’s regular Developer Update videos over the last few years are most often hosted by Jeff, which gives content creators plenty of material to work with.

While defending the first point on Horizon Lunar Colony, ShawnEz notices the enemy Widowmaker trying to get fancy with some jump shots.

“Does Jeff have a response to that?” the streamer asks the D.Va player on his team, who’s using the soundboard.

“A lot of players think they’re much better than they actually are,” Jeff’s voice replies as ShawnEz cracks up.

The player does it so perfectly it almost sounds like Jeff is actually speaking, which really makes this clip absolutely comical.

With the holiday season coming up, we could see the return of Blizzard streaming Jeff relaxing in front of a fireplace for our holiday enjoyment like they did last year, which would give even more ammo to the meme makers out there.

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.
