In his heyday, Tim the Tatman was one of the most popular Overwatch streamers on Twitch, often topping the platform’s most-watched broadcasters. However, as the game got older and newer games were released, Tim found himself playing less and less of Blizzard’s hero shooter.
However, on January 26, he made his long-awaited return to Overwatch in his first OW stream since switching to YouTube. Unfortunately for Tim (and everyone wanted to see him with Dr. Disrespect), the game itself almost stopped the two of them from playing together.
After the two completed the Warzone portion of their broadcast, Tim and Doc turned their attention to Overwatch with the intention of queuing up competitive — but some game design choices were making this impossible.
The fact that Dr. Disrespect and Tim the Tatman couldn’t play Overwatch together two years ago due to Tim’s SR.

Overwatch SR kills off the duo of Dr. Dishonor and Timad Tatman
Tim logged into his main account and joined him twice, the two forming a group and ready to have their competitive placement match, when Tim was greeted on a screen informing him that this was not possible. Will happen.
As it turns out, due to Tim’s previous SR high from season one, the game felt it was unfair for him to line up with Dr.
“I haven’t played in like two seasons,” the Complexity star said before going on to her alternate account. Sadly, that too reached the SR level the game was considered to be very high – from two years ago!
Amazingly, Tim last played competitively on his alternate account in season 20 and now it’s season 32, so a lot of time had passed. Despite the fact that Tim’s skills were also impaired, he and the Doctor were deemed incapable of playing team-based games together.
Twice teased for bringing his speed, violence and speed to Overwatch, “If you just give me three months, obviously I’m going to surpass what you’ve done and we’ll be able to play with each other.” will be able.” “But I don’t have time yet.”
Finally, after logging into his wife’s account, the two YouTubers finally found a way to queue up, but only after spending a lot of time trying to find a solution.
Hopefully, when the sequel is finally released, Blizzard can find a way to better allow friends to play Overwatch together.
