People are already using the Bob Ross stream on Twitch to calm them down before, during and after intense matches, so why not take that same spirit and use it to be a force for good on Twitter?
It's not known who exactly is behind the Bob Esports account, but in their brief amount of posts so far — it's only been active since October 30, roughly when Twitch began rebroadcasting Ross's shows online — they've displayed an incredible aptitude for channelling Ross's Zen-like nature.
Let's start at Terrorist spawn and grab ourselves a happy little smoke bomb. How about we try to run down long A? All together, as a team.

Bob Esports hasn't shown a preference yet for any particular game, which makes the account all the better — it'd be awful if Bob favoured one eSport over another. But he doesn't. He just wants everybody to get along.
It's OK to be angry sometimes. Hit a pillow, snap a twig, but never mash your buttons. You will never get better. @FGC_Bob_Ross

The advice is even genuinely useful, as strange as that sounds. And sometimes it even blends into art.
Let's take our flashbang and bounce it off this lovely wall into the hallway. Now we have our light source.

Believe in your teammates. Bob Ross does.
There's no such thing as clutch or kick. Just clutch. I believe in you.

Although of late he seems to be losing a little patience with the eSports world. But that's OK. We all need a break sometimes, right Ross?
If your team is throwing a game...remember there's nothing greater than the gift of giving.
