TimTheTatman hopped into Overwatch ranked play, alongside Jeff ’emongg’ Anderson to complete placements on his main account. In a squad of four, they were matched with two randoms to make up their team.

During a break in play, one of them let Tim and his squad know just how special it is to be on the same team as them. “You don’t know much it means to actually play with you guys,” said the player.

In a wholesome exchange, Tim’s squad replied, “aaw, that’s really sweet, thank you. You’re popping actually.”

They even went as far as to compliment the young fan’s performance in the game. “Honestly, you’re keeping everybody alive, because it really isn’t me,” said one of Tim’s squad. “I think you got about 16 kills.”

After, they all worked together to notch up a 2-0 win. As they were about to leave the game, Tim praises them once again, to which they reply “I love you too Tim. I love you all actually.”

It was only a small gesture, but we love to see big-name streamers and pro gamers giving a little back to the people who support them. There’s no doubt that just being in the same game as TimTheTatman and friends will have made this player’s day.
