With a YouTube stream thumbnail showing Dr Disrespect‘s visage pasted onto a newborn, TimTheTatman decided to take a shot at him. The two-time champion has now escalated the situation by launching an epic YouTube thumbnail battle.

Only a few days after following DrLupo to YouTube, the Tatman Army’s leader claimed that his friendship with the Doc was important in his decision to switch from Twitch to YouTube. On their first stream back, the pair went so far as to team up with Lupo to roast CouRage.

Now that the couple has rejoined for a few weeks, it appears that they are still teasing each other – this time with carefully altered thumbnails for their streams.

Dr Disrespect and TimTheTatman have continually ridiculed one another during their games while returning back to their origins and playing Call of Duty together.

Tim decided to take things a step further on September 16th by making his stream thumbnail an altered photo of himself carrying a baby two times across an active battlefield. “What the heck is this?” he tweeted after being observed by the Doc.

Tim responded to the Doc’s tweet by questioning what he was talking about, and he said, “don’t worry, I won’t retaliate.”

Unfortunately for the Tatman, that was a false response, since the two-time champion has already released his version of the funny thumbnail.

Doc’s appearance suggests that he believes he carries both sides in their activities, as well as awarding participation medals and lollipops to Tim and the 100 Thieves co-owners.

TimTheTatman may have retweeted Doc’s thumbnail pick, but we can’t help but wonder why Doc felt compelled to include CouRage in the mix.
