TimTheTatman and Dr Disrespect’s close bond

For the past few years, TimTheTatman and Doc have shared some great camaraderie with each other. Before his exit from Twitch, Dr Disrespect played a lot with his friend on games like Call of Duty: Warzone, Valorant, and many more. Fans loved the energy between the two of them and whenever they paired up, everyone knew that they would do something hilarious.

However, following his mysterious exit from Twitch, fans haven’t seen Doc play with Tim at all. As the Two Time can’t play with any Twitch creators, fans of both streamers have missed out on some great moments between the two. Following Doc’s announcement to sue the platform for damages, Tim even gave a heartfelt message to his friend as he misses playing with one of his favorite people from the industry.
