Timothy “TimTheTatman” Betar has signed with Dallas Cowboys-owned esports organization Complexity Gaming and has become a part-owner.
TimTheTatman was one of the biggest streamers on Twitch before transitioning to YouTube on Sept. 1. From Overwatch streamer turned Fortnite star and now Warzone legend, TimTheTatman is one of the most notable streamers on the planet. With 4 million subscribers on YouTube and previously 7 million subscribers on Twitch, TimTheTatman is bringing an army with him to Complexity Gaming.
According to GlobeNewswire GameSquare Esports Inc., the entity which Complexity is a part of along with gaming companies Code Red and Reciprocity, has issued 5 million options and 2.7 million Restricted Stocks to TimTheTatman which will vest over the three-year term of the agreement. This means the streamer will have to stick with Complexity for at least three years to receive his shares from his part-ownership.
On stream, TimTheTatman revealed that he had not only signed with the organization but also become a part-owner as well. As a long-term Dallas Cowboys fan, TimTheTatman also revealed he will participate in integrated community events at future Cowboys events. The most notable event is on Sunday before the Cowboy’s match against the Philadelphia Eagles. The event is a popup meet-and-greet with TimTheTatman where they will also sell Complexity and TimTheTatman merchandise for fans.

“Ultimately, did I have to sign to an org,” questioned TimTheTatman on stream during his announcement. “I did not. I didn’t want to unless it felt right and there were so many things that felt right about joining the Complexity team and family. It gets me really excited.”
One of TimTheTatman’s biggest concerns with joining an organization was how his community could be included. That is when TimTheTatman revealed on stream that Complexity Gaming would be hosting an event at the Cowboy’s upcoming game. In addition to this meet-and-greet, TimTheTatman also said that there will be more events that include his community in the future.
