Many followers shared their grief in the YouTube comments section
The Minecraft YouTuber, Technoblade, passed away at the age of 23 after a battle with cancer.
Minecraft has a fairly large community, which is not surprising given that the game has sold more than 238 million copies and is accessible on a variety of platforms.
The community is what has kept the game going for so long, with major personalities on YouTube actively promoting it.
YouTuber Technoblade was one such figure, amassing over 10 million subscribers over a decade.
His first video was posted on YouTube in 2013, and his channel shows his love and excitement for the game, as well as his great originality.
Unfortunately, Technoblade’s father posted one final video to the YouTuber’s channel to announce his son’s death at the age of 23.
Technoblade, whose real name was Alex, passed away from cancer and spent his last hours writing a letter to his fans so that his father could post it.
Technoblade passed away eight hours after finishing the letter. Before the screen went black with a message from his entire family, Technoblade’s father remembered his son’s final days as well as his love for his child.
Technomancer’s aspiration to “delight and reward his audience” through his videos and other activities was reflected by the family.
“This past year had a lot of rough spots for our son as he battled stage four cancer,” wrote the family of Technoblade.
“But he didn’t complain, and kept using his famous strategic mind to try to beat what he knew were almost impossible odds. My son’s bravery on this path was a shining lesson to all of us who were privileged to walk it with him. Thank you for sharing his journey through it all, as he did the work he loved for his beloved fans.”
Many fans expressed their sadness in the YouTube comments about Technoblade’s loss, but they also remembered all of the pleasant memories he gave them.
On Twitter, many major content creators, Minecraft server owners, and community members paid tribute to the YouTuber.
