Overwatch streamer Brandon ‘Seagull’ Larned doesn’t usually get that tilted during games, but one recent teammate managed to make him lose his usually chill composure.

Seagull played for the Dallas Fuel in the Overwatch League during the Inaugural Season, but left the team to become a full-time streamer after the season.

In the League and while streaming, Seagull is considered to be a pretty chill, honest dude, but some teammates, especially in Overwatch, seem to be able to rub anyone the wrong way.

Robert Paul / Blizzard EntertainmentSeagull was one of the most popular players in the Overwatch League before retiring.

“Do you know you’re just a trash can?”

During a Competitive Match on Busan, Seagull had to put up with those Overwatch teammates that just won’t stop talking – you know the ones.

After the talkative teammate began going in on another one of Seagull’s team, the streamer decided he had listened to enough.

“This dude is sitting here talking shit to Abandon, when Abandon probably has a flex account that’s actually higher than he is,” Seagull said while laughing.

“Hey True, you know you’re just a fucking trash can at this game, can you shut the fuck up and please play left click? Jesus Christ I’m gonna avoid you,” the streamer said after his teammate piped up again. “Fucking trash can, see ya.”

The State of Overwatch

Seagull has been consistent is his calls for changes to the Overwatch ranked system in the past, but even though Blizzard has introduced the new Workshop and Replay modes, there’s still no sign of any changes to Competitive play.

Overwatch director Jeff Kaplan did reveal that there would be more changes coming this summer for the game, but didn’t get any more specific than that.

Whatever changes happen to Overwatch, it’s unlikely there can be anything done about teammates who just don’t know when to be quiet.

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.
