Massively successful streamer TimTheTatman signed with Complexity gaming on Monday, following months of rumors that he was negotiating to sign with 100 Thieves.
He will be joining as both a content creator and a part-owner of Complexity, a Texas-based organization partly owned by Jerry Jones, owner of the Dallas Cowboys. The organization is also backed by the Cowboys organization. TimTheTatman is an outspoken fan of the Dallas Cowboys, so the move makes a lot sense for the streamer from that standpoint.
TimTheTatman is known best for his FPS shooter content, having made a name for himself as a likeable and competitive streamer who enjoys titles like Call of Duty: Warzone, and most recently Apex Legends. He also has been known for talking about the NFL on his stream, including make NFL ranking tier lists, and appearing at NFL games and in an NFL Superbowl commercial with Nick Mercs.
