Everyone has that one thing that just sets them off, and for streamer Sweet_Anita two of those things seem to be Doomfist mains and noisy eaters.

Why Doomfist players get thrown in with the noisy eaters we may never know, but Anita makes her aversion to them pretty clear.

“There are very few things that would drive me to violence,” the streamer told her audience. “And one of them is Doomfist players and one of them is noisy eaters.”

Hopefully she doesn’t encounter a Doomfist player eating chips or something loudly during a match.

But Anita is a frequent streamer of Overwatch so this hatred of Doomfist could come from multiple bad experiences against the hero, something any player can attest to. 

Anita has seen massive growth on her Twitch channel during October after clips of her dealing with Tourette’s syndrome went viral. 

During another stream on November 8, an Overwatch developer talked about their plan to nerf Doomfist in a future update, which might be just as bad as being thrown in with noisy eaters.

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.
