Twitch streamer TreeboyDave has become the first Overwatch player to hit level 10,000. 

As his fans spammed the chat with “I was here,” TreeboyDave announced the impressive achievement live on Twitch yesterday. 

The British streamer began his October 19 broadcast at level 9,993 – already quite the feat on its own. But he was just seven to the record-breaking 10,000th level. Over 10 hours of streaming finally brought TreeboyDave to the edge of history. Then, a victory on Eichenwalde finally led to the momentous celebration.

“There we go. Level up!” he exclaimed. “Nice, then thousand. There we go.”

The streamer noted that the game hadn’t crashed from the unheard of achievement, although one follower joked that Blizzard might ban him. 

“This was a long time coming. Never thought I’d get here. But level 10,000,” TreeboyDave continued as fans continued to spam his chat with “I was here.” 

One follower gave him 10,000 Twitch bits, equal to a $100 donation to TreebyDave. 

If that wasn’t enough of a gift, Treeboy then opened his level 10,000 loot box, revealing two legendary skins. One was Mercy’s ever-popular witch skin, while the other was Wrecking Ball’s colorful punk Mayhem skin. Of course – being a level 10,000 – these skins were duplicates. But still, it was a lucky loot box indeed. 

“This is one for the record books! Level 10000 has been reached! Thank you very much for stopping by to witness this historic moment with us!” he tweeted after the stream. 

TreeboyDave is no stranger to breaking Overwatch records. The passionate streamer was the first player to hit 4,000 and 5,000 as well. It’s safe to say that TreeboyDave is most likely already looking to the next milestones, hoping to be the first to reach them.
