For a brief, shining moment, Overwatch player Miso snatched the rank most competitive players can only dream of: number one in the whole dang country. So of course, he called his mom.
The moment came after a showdown between Miso and friendly rival Mangachu, a pro player who was ranked number one at the time. After spending the requisite amount of time losing his entire shit, Miso turned to the camera and said, “Hold up. I’m gonna call my mom.”
“Hey mom, guess what?” he said to her. “I got rank one in Overwatchtoday, and there are 1,600 people watching me do it.”
“Neat,” she replied curtly.
“They can hear you right now,” Miso added.
At that point, it became apparent that his mom either wasn’t impressed or didn’t fully grasp the situation. Miso jokingly told his viewers the former. “I’m very impressed,” said his mom. Then she tried to Facetime him, even though he was on stream, because moms are great.
Eventually, Miso explained what had happened—that he beat the person who was first place before and claimed the rank for himself—and his mom was suitably stoked. “Wooow, really? That’s crazy!” she said.
She asked to see a link of it. “You don’t want to see Twitch chat,” Miso replied. “They’re savage.”
Ultimately, she said that a “snap picture” of it would suffice. “I love you,” said Miso. “Congratulations!” replied his mom. “I love you too.”
