Fans can proceed the talk for days; nevertheless, the excellence solely issues if you’re taking part in the sport. Tyson shaped bonds with Rob, Amber, and others who he performed with within the early seasons. So, it won’t matter to them when he received the sport, however that he’s loyal to them. 

On the opposite hand, the “new school” gamers are likely to group him with the “old school” since he has these sturdy bonds, thereby placing a risk on his again.
