A painful news was known this July 1, since it was reported about the death of technobladea famous youtube creator and player of Minecraft 23, who died of cancer that had been diagnosed a year ago.
The content creator left an emotional farewell message:
The posthumous message, affectionately titled “So long nerds” and read by his father on a free blank space, begins: “Hello everyone, Technoblade here. If you’re watching this, I’m dead. So let’s sit down and have one last chat. My real name is Alex.”
“Thank you all for supporting my content over the years,” Technoblade’s note ends. “If I had another hundred lives, I think I would choose to be Technoblade again every time, since those were the happiest years of my life. I love you guys. Technoblade out.”
On the other hand, the mother of Technoblade also wrote a thank you to her son’s more than 11 million subscribers:
We, the Technoblade family, wanted everyone to know how much he adored and respected his fans and colleagues.
From Technoblade’s early online days, he was always strategizing to delight and reward his audience: giving away prizes online, encouraging good sportsmanship, and most of all, sharing his Minecraft adventures for entertainment and laughter. Even after his eventual successes, he somehow managed to maintain his good-natured humility, competing with an endearing balance between his confidence and his self-deprecating wit. He avoided personal fame and worked hard to keep his true identity confidential, and we ask that you honor his wishes to protect his privacy and the privacy of his family.
This past year has seen many difficult points for our son as he battled stage four cancer. But he didn’t complain, and he continued to use his famous strategic mind to try to beat what he knew to be nearly impossible odds. My son’s bravery on this path was a shining lesson for all of us who had the privilege of walking with him. Thank you for sharing his journey through it all as he did the work he loved for his beloved fans.
