Amongst our Overwatch community, there are someplayers who lost a friend this week and to honor him, made a video in which they did a gun salute of his favorite characters within the game.
It's always hard to lose someone close to you, be it family or a friend. Even online relationships between gamers have been going on for years, and tragedy's are never easy when they happen.
Their final sentiment to their friend on YouTube reads out:
"Wherever you are. May the payload be always moving, the point always contested, no one trickles out, and may there always a healer on your team. We miss you, big guy. This play of the game is for you."
Will was an editor and content creator at Too Much Gaming, a gaming site based in the Philippines. He passed due to a heart attack at the age of 35.
"He was loved by many and his loss pretty much struck waves in various communities in the gaming community here in the Philippines," TMG editor Carlos Hernadez told Mic. "Overwatch was the one game that we play together regularly after a long day. It's one of his favorite games. To pay tribute, his friends and colleagues gathered to do this in honor of him."
It's clear he'll be missed as a friend, person and Overwatch player.
