Leaving life with a video titled "so long nerds" and starting a post-death merch line has to be the most Technoblade thing ever, and I love him for that. Rest in Peace.


Longjumping-Bag8062

And the merch is GG EZ or his avatar looking badass with a messed up arm and leg. God I miss him already


DonaldTrumpsBallsack

Haha just the arm, I think you’ve mistook the scabbard for his right leg


sunmonkey

Here is the link to the video: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=DPMluEVUqS0&t=6s


LordShrekOgre

I've just watched the latest video on his channel, watching his dad at the end was heart breaking.


Howzieky

I'm gonna link this here because I see people asking for context. Diagnosis: https://youtu.be/g9_aYyEDMD0 Update: https://youtu.be/wG1Q1ouemVA Goodbye: https://youtu.be/DPMluEVUqS0


seafoodgodddd

Thanks for the links for those of us OOTL, I was never in the minecraft scene so I had only ever heard of his name, but that last link made me tear up big time. I may get one of those GG EZ Shirts to help his family


BrianTheBrilliant

Also to add: A portion of the proceeds will be going towards curesarcoma.org


seafoodgodddd

Oh then I'm 100% doing it, thanks for the heads up!


TheFirebyrd

I hadn’t even heard of him and I’m teared up. Cancer sucks.


cemeterykitten

Same. Fuck cancer.


warblingContinues

I’ve never heard of this person, but I hope his family is doing better. I’m sure it’s a tough time.


Cryonyx

Fuck me that was hard to watch. Never knew who he was but can't imagine his family or community going through that


Earthwick

Never even heard of this guy before but watching these videos you can tell he seems like a fun good guy and it's pretty heart breaking. Cancer sucks.


SwigglesSchlong

God that diagnosis vid of him just joking around got me fked up. To hear someone explain it like that is just both sad and funny. Never watched the guy but has heard him and man, seems like a good dude


Cytrynowy

"the hair was holding me back" made me legit snort laughing


papii_chulo

I had no idea who he was and after watching the first two videos I was laughing several times. My favorite part was "out of all the phone calls I had to make, no one took it worse than my health insurance provider" hilarious. Now im in tears after the last one. Technoblade never dies


littlebitsofspider

People might denigrate online content creators, but that was one of the most lucid, thoughtful meditations on dying I've ever heard.


JamUpGuy1989

He labeled his final video "So Long Nerds". Heartbreaking stuff. Wishing nothing but the best for all his family and friends.


desyncing

There's a shirt on his store now that says GGEZ. Dude is an absolute legend. RIP to the Minecraft GOAT. Context in order: [https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=g9\_aYyEDMD0](https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=g9_aYyEDMD0) \- Aug 27, 2021 [https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=wG1Q1ouemVA](https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=wG1Q1ouemVA) \- Dec 23, 2021 [https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=DPMluEVUqS0](https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=DPMluEVUqS0) \- Jun 30, 2022 First video he reveals his diagnosis, the second video is an update that conveniently portrays his personality and sense of humor perfectly, and the last video is the announcement of his passing from the family. Edit: spelling and context for the uninformed


Thee_Sinner

I have literally never even heard of this dude before this post but the first 20 seconds of the third link made me tear up.


soapd1sh

This post is the first time I've heard of Technoblade. The second video made me instantly like the guy with his dry dark sense of humor and then I watched the third video and it had me ugly crying from the combination of the situation just being plain sad and how touching the video was hearing that his parents and siblings won't have to worry about the expense of university if they choose to go and how much he loved and appreciated his fans.


Gabrosin

Go watch The Great Potato War series (3 parts). You don't need to know anything about Minecraft to enjoy them. Techno had a rare talent for making people laugh, and is gone far far too soon.


duhduddude

Imagine being a fan for ten years (not me but a guy came up in the chat once in a stream) and then a sudden news of cancer and relaxation after he says all is good and starts appearing more and then that video today It's just, i started expecting' haha a joke' and then he said his real name and then his photos made me realise maybe it's not. I still, STILL can't believe it. I still expect it all to be a joke and him tweeting like haha sike gottem. But i ...i just know that won't be happening


Alykat19

My partner and a close friend are huge Techno fans but I never really watched his content. But his dad made me sob. I just lost a close family member, but I can't imagine the pain of losing a child. Rest in peace, Techno.


Mrassassin1206

So there is nothing worse for a parent than the death of his child and his funeral and its even worse that he was still young.


zardozardoz

Watch his potato war video. Don't need to know anything at all or care about minecraft. Absolutely a gem series.


ThoughtfullyReckless

I'm not a huge gamer nor do I watch much YouTube gaming but the potato war videos are my absolute favourite on YouTube


Garreousbear

I don't even watch his content but I cried watching his dad crack. RIP.


whoweoncewere

I started crying in the second video because I knew where it was going. fuck


Espumma

Well that certainly was a ride. Never knew the guy but I miss him already.


Predicted

Same, started laughing hard at his health insurance joke


inf3ct3dn0n4m3

I bought one the second I saw it.


FrenchFreedom888

o7


VezurMathYT

The last video is very beautiful. The way the dad just wanted him to rest.


IneedtoBmyLonsomeTs

Never heard of technoblade before, but watching those videos it is easy to see why he was popular. Great sense of humor while being mechanically very good at the Minecraft mini games.


seab4ss

Thanks for posting this, i didnt know who he was but i watched those 3 vids and he sounded like an awesome person. Fuck cancer.


Oobt

I believe he was trying to brighten our moods in true technoblade fashion. I think, idk I’ve never watched him


FrenchFreedom888

Fucking shit, he was funny 'til the end. Rest easy Technoblade. Legends never die, and Techno was one of the most legendary


asiandotaguy

Can you imagine? You complain of arm pain, go to doctor, and they diagnose you with cancer. Life is cruel.


Dblcut3

That’s what gets me. I’m basically his age and it just makes me sad knowing that he had to go through that because I can’t even begin to fathom how I would handle such news


Kono-weebo-da

My birthday is July 1st. I'm turning 24 and this rough for me to grasp as well. Absolutely would not have handled this with the same grace as he did. Edit: thanks to everyone who wished me happy birthday and to all the people with same birthday as I, happy birthday to you too.


Lucian41

I'm also 24 and can say for sure I couldn't handle such a thing with any grace at all.


IceDragon77

For me it was just a regular day at work. Go to use the toilet. I take a dump. But instead of poop it was all blood. I nearly passed out. Go to the emergency room and they tell me I have colorectal cancer. Then I fought with radiation, surgeries, and chemo for 3 years. This February they told me I have a year or two left to live. I'm 31. Life is bullshit.


GearGuy2001

Colorectal is the worst, I have been assisting my dad in his battle and I know the doctors were saying how they had seen patients in their 30s which is just crazy. I'm sorry to hear you are dealing with this at your age. (which is younger then myself) For the older folks that qualify - DO NOT skip getting a colonoscopy. By the time you see symptoms like OP is describing it is at a minimum Stage 3. They tested my dad's type and it was non-hereditary but even that only bumps age for a colonoscopy down to 40 years old (from 50). OP feel free to reach out if you want to chat.


ciamantyla

I am so sorry. I can't even imagine how I would react upon hearing that, especially at such a young age. I hope your remaining time will be filled with love, good experiences and warm memories. You are an incredibly strong person for having fought so long already.


PM_ME_FUN_THINGS_PLZ

I feel you man. My sister went to doctor with stomach pain. Got diagnosed with stage 4 liver cancer that had spread to her colon. She was gone within the year. I only got to meet her once. I really hope you beat it. Best wishes to you


Fluffy_Banks

He died less than a year later. Cancer is cruel af


Gibsonfan159

Getting regular check ups is important. Don't think that just because you feel fine that something isn't potentially wrong. Edit: also try to have insurance.


Freddit-

Getting checkups hardly matters in my experience. My mother had two hereditary cancers that she got and beat before 30 and then she died of a third cancer at 46. I'm 34 and I can't get any doctor to take my cancer concerns seriously. They refuse to do anything other than the standard blood test which is dog shit at detecting most cancers. They won't do anything more because I'm "too young and not at risk" despite my mother's history. This is at Mayo Clinic mind you, practically oncology mecca. I just know that these clowns are going to wait until I'm experiencing pains before they do any proper testing and by then it'll be too late. That's how she went. Got symptoms, got checked, was told it was too late and she was dead three months later.


masclean

Man I recently just found out the the doc dgaf about my concerns. The hereditary risk is there. People sometimes get cancer early. Why wouldn't you do preemptive testing???


Le_90s_Kid_XD

I’m a radiation therapist and I treated an 18yr old girl with arm pain a while back, I forget what kind of tumor it was, but I saw her like 6 months later and she was missing that arm at the shoulder level. Life is fucking cruel indeed, I hope things turned out better for her than technoblade :(


Komatoasty

It is so cruel. My brother had stomach pains he wasn't too concerned about because he practically drank hot sauce and worked nightshift so he also ingested lots of coffee. Next thing you know, stage 4 lymphoma. Unfortunately it was a rare and imprecise sub type. He passed away at 29. My heart aches for Technoblade's family. It is so painful to lose someone so special and so loved.


MacinTez

That is devastating… I would be overwhelmed with tears. When my mother passed 2 years ago, there was a certain reality about life that HIT. My life has been a struggle, but seeing her pass made me want to give this world everything I have. To have that reality hit, but, for it to come thru your own terminal diagnosis? I can’t imagine handling it at 34, let alone 22. God speed technoblade.


EselSchwanz

My mom died 2 years ago too. I'm up at 4am unable to sleep right now still because of the mental anguish it's put me through, and I'm still going through. I have no idea how to come to terms with death. Idk how anybody does. Life is so cruel


PartyHawk

I don't have anything profound to say I just want to express how much that fucking sucks, I'm so sorry I've also suffered loss to cancer It fucking **sucks**


whothefuckisjan

No trying to pry or anything, but if you feel this is still weighing heavy on your soul, you might consider professional help. Nothing wrong with getting help because you‘re grieving :)


shorey66

I injured a testicle responding to a fight at work (prison officer). Went to get it checked and was told I had testicular cancer. Was 29 at the time. Sightly unexpected.


elevendayempire

I hope you thanked the guy who, uh, hit you in the balls.


shorey66

It was actually a low gate that I hit. But I did make sure the maintenance guys treated that gate well from then on. She was always well greased.


Amelaclya1

This happened to my grandfather. Complained of back pain, they found a super big tumor in his hip/pelvis. Had to have his whole leg amputated, but the doctors so far seem pretty confident that they got all of the cancer. Let's hope they are right.


itsmywife

I dont wish cancer on anyone, suffering is sad to see and its a widespread human condition, we all die eventually


realestbenshapiro

"I'm no doctor or anything but I'm pretty sure if you die the Cancer also dies. That's no loss, as far as I'm concerned it's a draw." -Norm Macdonald Rest in peace to Techno blade. And may his Family and Friends find comfort in one another and in knowing how many lives he touched.


Pretend_Artichoke769

Damn. Norm macdonald, Godfrey, The Blade. These past couple of years have been not nice to my favorite people to laugh with


GoethesFinest

The cynical Brit also..


Jayer244

That's exactly Technos kind of humor. Love that quote.


wufnu

He said something similar in one of the vids linked above. Paraphrasing, "ok, tumor, you need me to live so it's in your best interest to just *chill out* for a bit".


Eurasia_4200

“Dream manhunt song in the distance”


taws34

Norm made that joke while also fighting cancer.


blisfuli

Fuck cancer. RIP Technoblade. I remember spending New Years' Eve watching him hit 10 million subscribers. I watched his videos all throughout the pandemic. Stayed up late for his streams. I don't even play Minecraft, he was just such a cool guy.


astroSuperkoala1

Man, take me back to when we were all celebrating 10 mil… feels like an eternity ago


Faka3

... fuck


Stargazer_199

He was _23_ when he died. he started making videos when he was _13_


AbsolutelyUnlikely

wtf ok I'm 35 so I missed the whole streamer generation as a young person and I never got really into it but even I have heard of technoblade What happened to him? I assumed he was older because I have seen his handle mentioned for years, so I guess it makes sense that he started so young.


cherry-cola69

he recently passed away from a long battle with cancer


AbsolutelyUnlikely

fucks sake. A long battle with cancer at 23 is just the saddest sentence to read. Has he had cancer the whole time he was streaming? And what kind of cancer was it? I know I could google this but it's the middle of the night and I'm in comment sections for two reasons. half drunk and bored because I just came to the end of a movie but I don't wanna go to bed yet lol.


profesional-dumbas

He's had cancer for (and correct me if I'm wrong) around the past half year, maybe longer. He got it in his arm


AbsolutelyUnlikely

God damn. That's such a frustrating thing to hear. How does a 23 year old who brought joy to millions die a year after a cancer diagnosis IN HIS ARM. Insanely sad.


ramithrower

To be fair, most of the cancers associated with limbs like bone and muscle cancers do occur in children-young adults, still rare, and still heartbreaking


I_love_Vodca4816

When he came out and said that he had cancer he said that he prepared jokes to make if he lost his arm. He had a high spirit, even the title of the last video was "so long nerds".


Hapukurk666

Especially bad was ofc that it was in his arm, a useful thing when your passion is gaming


runnerhasnolife

He had cancer stage 4


Kallu609

Almost half a life dedicated to Minecraft videos.


rainfog27

“Technoblade never dies.” - Sun Tzu, The Art of War probably RIP King 👑 You will surely be missed by many.


mobeen1497

He wrote his last message for his community and passed away 8 hours later, I am a grown man and I was in tears when his father was recalling those moments. Rest In Peace o7


ChairmanUzamaoki

Yeah same, that shit was hard to stomach. Dad is a strong motherfucker to hold it together that entire time. You know mom wrote the message because no way she would've verbalized anything without crying hysterically


Shadowsmerchants

I'm 30 and watching that video broke me.


AvoidMySnipes

Don’t think emotions have an age limit Only wish I knew who he was but will check out his YouTube channel now


Fazlija13

His father knew what was coming and he was prepared for it, somebody has to stay strong when things are the hardest


TheRedGerund

There is nothing weak about grief or crying. I say this only so those that go through something similar don't think they have to keep it together to do right.


OscarTheFudd

I have rarely cried real tears over something I saw on the internet. But that video has me bawling, and I had no idea who technoblade was an hour ago


noobynuke

I tried so hard to hold back the tears, then I bought his GG EZ hoodie on the merch website.


DaSomDum

Motherfucker really dies and names his last piece of merch "ggez" RIP Technoblade, you beautiful bastard!


thedaddysaur

Also "So Long, Nerds!" I'm probably going to get both and the Self Defense shirt.


ThatRandomGamerYT

I don't even have money to buy his merch, hopefully the store is kept up for a while, even if the proceeds go to charity.


Peacetoall01

The proceeds will go to Techno brother university funds. If they want it, he doesn't want to give dead sibling peer pressure


The_SG1405

Nothing worse than seeing a parent grieve over the death of their child. Truly heartbreaking stuff. Every parents worst fear is planning their own childs funeral. Rest in peace legend, youll always stay in our hearts


somedude456

From "my arm hurts" a little bit which is odd ... to passing away in 12ish months. Damn. :(


Academiral

He was born in June, and passed away on it. Grossly young Some things are horribly cryptic in life


Berryception

That dragon, cancer


OrhanDaLegend

*Technoblade* was a very special youtuber, one of the last youtubers that retained their sense of humor despite how garbage youtube's new rules were, we remember that the last time he spoke to us, he was only positive and made jokes about his fatal illness, we, atleast i thought that he was going to be alright, and then, today happened. May he rest in peace.


Disturbing_Cheeto

I legitimately thought he was beating cancer all this time


WildHobbits

Cancer can be deceiving like that. One moment you think they are winning the fight, then before you know it they are gone. I'm sure he also didn't fully clue us in on how bad it was for the sake of privacy and keeping his audience hopeful. Can't blame the guy really. R.I.P.


ItalianDragon

Yup, this is why there's years of checkups afterwards as you may think it's finally gone for good and bam, it sprouts up somewhere else later. So, blood tests and x-rays is what you usually deal with (or at least what I deal with to check on my testicular cancer remission) for several years afterwards to be sure it's not poking up elsewhere, and if it is, to deal with it promptly and efficiently.


EmptiSky

He's passed on to fight bigger opponents, perhaps the blood god will get the blood he needs


goldenofdeath1

"When god sends me to hell I want him to hesitate"


BreakingThoseCankles

Former cancer survivor here and never knew technoblade but feel this fucking quote. Never been a big believer in god with the whole childhood cancer shit.


Tigerballs07

I never watched his content until tonight but his potato war saga is some of the greatest shit I've ever watched. And the quote is from one of those videos.


MrAnomander

Potato war?


Gunlaser

Trust us and watch it, it’s the greatest devolution to insanity for fake internet cred there is


Daybreak_99

If a perfect video exist, then it’s definitely that.


ThoughtfullyReckless

This is no exaggeration, but the potato war is honestly my favourite bunch of videos on YouTube.


AllTheSith

"Tell the rest of the SMP that having abolished all governments of men. I have ascended to heaven to take on the Kingdom of God."


Tuck_Pock

When did he say this?


TheDoughGoat

In his instructions to Phil while he was in prison


mrchingchongwingtong

on the dream smp (minecraft server with a bunch of really famous ccs) they basically started making more and storylines ​ in lore technoblade is an anarchist, that quote is from the will he wrote when he went to go break someone out of prison


Fluffy_Banks

The dude literally raised hundreds of thousands of dollars for cancer related charities. God better not hesitate to send him to heaven.


GenesectX

God didnt want to give time for him to prepare to fight him and so he brought him up early


[deleted]

he is still alive in our memory because Technoblade never dies


Xyldarran

Alex has died, and we mourn him. But Technoblade is legend and will never die.


RevReddited

"technoblade out" that's the last word that we would hear from him in reality, but he will be with us on our mind


Grav_Zeppelin

The last video I watched from him he signed off with „See you guys next time, Bye“, sad that didn’t come to pass


TurboLasagne

As a 36 year old male randomly browsing youtube like two years ago, I stumbled across his potato war videos and became an instant fan. His humour was top notch and i knew any videos of his were going to have me laughing out loud. I never followed any other minecraft streamers but Techno was something else. This is immensely sad and depressing.


KushiroCarjis

Gonna miss seeing the dude’s humor.


sentient-bath-towel

There's a condolences book going around in Hypixel, feel free to sign it. It'll be given to his family, I believe. Also goddamn, I can't believe he's gone just like that.. Fuck cancer.. May you rest in peace, King 👑


chickeman123

Wait how do I sign it


armaan5

It’s in-game on the Hypixel server. Here’s a link to the post https://hypixel.net/threads/in-memoriam-technoblade.5007404/


sentient-bath-towel

Hop in to the server and then type /hub Once at the hub, go to your right and there will be an NPC called "Memorial" He'll bring you to the memorial server, go left, past the wheat fields, and you'll meet the "Bookkeeper" there Click the book behind him and write down your messages, close, and sign it


Boros-Reckoner

I think the server is so packed I can't even join it, would love to sign the book.


StrawberryFruity

I think if you wait a little bit until the news isn’t brand new anymore you can get online to write something. Because the news of Techno’s passing is so recent a lot of people are trying to send their condolences right now, the Memorial will be on Hypixel until the end of July, no rush.


MyLifeIsAFrickingMes

He died at 23. Thats way too fucking young man.


Testastic

I'm 23. Can't imagine finding out that im gonna die.


MyLifeIsAFrickingMes

I honestly thought man would last yknow. This shit caught me off guard

My daughter is in shambles. She came down as we were steamrolling through Stranger Things and had her Technoblade piggy plush. Poor thing just starts breaking down. She then told us what was up. Man, a youtuber with that many subs is hard. Like Tom Hanks just died or something. I tried to relay the feeling when Totalbiscuit passed as just to try and help the grieving but I dunno. RIP Technoblade. My daughter loved your YT videos.


SirLexmarkThePrinted

Motherfucker, TB really hit hard back then. Now I am really sad. This dude i never watched but man not even 24. That is just fucking bullshit.


RlySkiz

TB being a kind-of wall for the consumer against shitty business practices and him passing away... i feel like as soon as his presence was gone companies went apeshit with whatever they can think of to get peoples money. One could say it was inevitable regardless of him.. Its still a feeling i have with such a beacon for the community gone. He'd be spinning in his grave with what Blizzard has done to Diablo Immortal.


ThePrussianGrippe

Reading a lot of comments from parents having their small kids grieve hard. Maybe in a way it’s one last positive effect he can have, creating conversations, understanding, and providing a moment for parents to really connect with their kids. I’m sorry your daughter was hit so hard by this, may it bring you even closer together.


Peacetoall01

The dude literally had a brave face and sarcastic tone in all of this suffering. Like when this diagnostic happens his thoughts are on his family and then his insurance company, imagining the easiest money maker they had just got cancer. Even in his last days his merch store update to gg ez was his last hurrah.


IceDragon77

I've got terminal cancer and honestly I kinda have taken a sarcastic attitude towards it all as well. I'll make jokes about it with my friends/family, and laugh it off. I don't want them to be sad about me, if I'm gonna go then I want my time full of laughter and fun. Nights are pretty hard though. When I'm alone with me and my thoughts, it kinda just pops into my head "oh yeah, I guess I'll be dead soon" and I end up crying till I fall asleep.


dotdioscorea

My man, I’m so sorry to hear that. Life can be so unfair and cruel. I wish you all the best.


BieblachBizeps

Being alone really amplifies the dread and fear. I try to chat with some friends when it gets too bad.


WorgenDeath

Not gonna lie, when Techno posted his initial video aftwr getting diagnosed my mind instantly went to TotalBiscuit aswell, now that he's passed it just feels like the acronym TB has to be cursed or something, two legends who both passed far too soon.


17degreescelcius

That's heartbreaking, I didn't even think of all the children who have spent the last few years growing up watching these guys


ConstantHonest1022

So long nerds.


Gamin_Crusader

I wasn’t a fan of his, however my sister is. I could tell how heartbroken she was after hearing of his passing. Even my dad, who is not by any means up to date of gaming news, still was sad because my sister was sad. My point is that even someone who isn’t a fan of his can still say their support. Rest In Peace Techno o7


DeadlyPancak3

For everyone in the comments who doesn't know who Technoblade was, I submit to you the following: https://youtu.be/5qjnDd1rsII Technoblade was a minecraft youtuber. My wife used to watch a lot of people from the Dream SMP (Minecraft server populated exclusively by big Minecraft streamers), but his content was the only content I also enjoyed. Truly funny and clever, and seemed like a good bean on top of everything else. He will be remembered. Technoblade never dies.


defensive_username

There is also The Legend of Technoblade by EvanMCGaming. Goes into a lot of detail about who Techno is: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=N_dIRLhSNaE


venomstin9

It has been an amazing ride to watch him till now, from his Minecraft Monday video, Dream SMP, and MC championships. Thank you. May your soul rest in Peace. BLOOD FOR THE BLOOD GOD


YuvalAmir

I respect so much how he can always make jokes even when times are rough. He titled the video announcing his death "so long nerds" for fuck sake.


TheOrganHarvester123

Hell he literally has merch saying GGEZ with his birth date and day he passed, doesn't get more technoblade than that


GoodGuyPokemoner

I found Techno about a year ago and shared his videos with whomever I thought would enjoy them. It's been an amazing time going through and seeing all of his content, and how he influences the people around him in amazing ways. His videos truly helped me make it through some rough days. Rest in peace, Alex. You left this world a much brighter place. o7


randompopatoe

I wasn't a fan on the first place, but he is the only dream SMP guy that doesn't make me cringe whenever I hear/see, I didn't have the full experience of his channel, but i do know he was hella respected. This is quite sad


Peacetoall01

His potato saga is just beautiful


Paragammon264

I’ll drink to that 🍻


Different-Region-873

Same 🍻


LadderTrash

One of the only Minecraft YouTubers I could still watch, he never changed his content or personality for his YouTube, he didn’t try to appeal to young kids like we see with so many other MC YTers. He was always himself and never failed to make me laugh even in my lowest moments. Rest In Peace legend, he may have died in real life but he will never die in our hearts <3


GH05T--D34TH1C3

I was here, you were here, we all were. As such, people only truly die when they are forgotten and in this view, techno will never die. Rest in peace, king


loading61

What happened to him. I never watched but that sucks


Many_Rule_9280

He lost his battle with cancer from what I saw


loading61

Ok thanks for letting me know


-anominal-

For no mortal man could ever best him, so Mother Earth took Technoblade for herself.


randomtree2022

This was so unfair, he was only 23 and spent nearly 10 years trying his best to entertain others and when his sad news came he marched on and gave us his best until his last days, I hope he is somehow informed of the incredible positive impact he made on tens of millions of lives *though gone, legends are never forgotten* *sniff* o7


Shaxce

For everyone grieving right now, I'd recommend r/eyebleach Kittens, Puppies, and everything else adorable. It's helping me process at least. Hurts just as bad as TB's passing.


CricketKieran

The best minecraft YouTuber who ever lived. He was one of the first ones I watched. First found him in early 2016, man, those were the days. I will never stop watching and supporting his content and family. He's such a legend, his humor never left even when he was battling like this. Like on his new merch drop today, where one literally says GGEZ on it. What a legend. This cruel world has taken another one away from us too soon, and this one really hit me. Technoblade is the one who was first for me. He will always hold a special place in my heart. Rest in peace Alex. Legends never die. Technoblade never dies


Azaloq

I never even played Minecraft, and yet I watched some of his videos times and times again. He just had the right kind of humor for me. Witty, sarcastic, and yet not malicious. He will be missed, profoundly


Mindofthequill

I dont know who that is but I'm sorry to hear that.


Toxopid

He was a very influential minecraft youtuber. He was diagnosed with cancer a while back, and he lost the battle.


Ok-Cell-4428

he was diagnosed less than a year ago, and he was 23 at his passing. fuck cancer.


ConstantFawn962

Technoblade never dies in our hearts


SeraphGrimaldi

"When do you think people die? When they are shot through the heart by the bullet of a pistol? No. When they are ravaged by an incurable disease? No. When they drink a soup made from a poisonous mushroom!? No! It’s when… they are forgotten." - Eiichiro Oda (One Piece) I never watched any of Technoblade's videos, but I have heard story after story of the goodness in his heart, and the happiness that he brought to people all over the world.

I think the quote is from terry pratchet, but I always loved "A man is not dead while his name is still spoken"


FinlandPlays

Wow, I did not expect to start this morning with this news. Rest in peace Technoblade, you will always be the blood god.


buttstufffmcgee

Who is he and what did he die from?


bt123456789

he was a very influential minecraft youtuber and made some of the biggest impact for that community. he died of stage 4 cancer, is what I was told on another subreddit.


TheHolyPug

I fucking hate caner. I have blood cancer as we speak but at least i got to live a lot longer than this poor guy or any of the children i see laying up in the hospital. SO i am thankful.


bt123456789

yeah, cancer can go fuck itself..it sucks that so many have to die from it, especially so young. Sorry you're having to battle it too, at least if it's terminal you have several years left I take it?


TheHolyPug

I may have a good 3 to 5 years left if i dont get any major illnesses like pneumonia or something but i was saying i feel bad for the younger people that didnt even get a chance to do shit before they got this crap. And thank you :)


bt123456789

yeah, 3-5 is something at least :) and yeah, I can't imagine being a parent and your kid going through anything like that.

My dad has chronic blood leukemia. he’s never really discussed it with me, but he was diagnosed sometime in the mid to late 90s I think? Was a constant blood donor and they made him stop donating because they found it. Has told me numerous times over the years (I’m 32) that it could take that turn at any moment. He’s 73 now, so he’s had his fun and career/retirement in life, but it doesn’t worry/freak me out any less. I’m sorry you have to deal with that, and I hope you are able to combat that bullshit and enjoy the same time my dad has. you deserve it.


Xylosoxidans

holy shit this dude has 10mil subs and I've never heard of him. The internet is wild.


a-r-c

minecraft youtube is out of control "small" channels have like 700k subs


neko_neko2019

He was a really popular Minecraft YouTuber and famous for being good at pvp, the potato wars,etc. He was around 23 I think and died from stage 4 cancer sadly


defensive_username

Don't forget the dude raised over $430,000 for the Sarcoma Foundation of America by himself, while he had cancer! Dude never once asked his fanbase for a cent nor for any pity, and always made sure to make his fans laugh regardless of what happened to him. His latest merch being a great example.


TheFlexOffenderr

It's often the most vulnerable time, when pain decides to strike, and once it does, it's hard to grasp the entirety because you're stuck wondering. How? I didn't know him personally. But he made my days as a young kid a whole lot of fun and he entertained the shit out of me. This leaves me speechless because I had no idea he was sick. I haven't watched him in a long time, but God. My heart sank when I seen this. Rest In Paradise, Techno.


Rozazaza

Saw the video when it popped up. Thought it was a troll at first. Would've been just like him to do that.


Sadness-Maximus901

I hoped it to just be a prank untill I heard the pain in his father's voice. You can't fake that sadness.


Pheronia

Who is gonna murder all those stupid famous people in Minecraft now?


HiperNovaGG

Fuck cancer


TheRealRussianButter

It's believed to have happened 20 days ago, actually. It's entirely understandable that his family would need time to grieve. Regardless, he made an impact. Not just for the minecraft community. Fly high Techno, you were a legend, and will go down in the books as one.


TheLegitMind

Where did you get 20 days ago from?


TheRealRussianButter

I saw a comment on a recent post on the r/technoblade subreddit, where someone was saying that people in his area had heard of a death for someone with his same first name and age, which while I didn't see a source proving this, it makes sense. Grieving takes time. The funeral had to happen, and the final video would most likely have taken a few days to make, at least. Again, no source on any of this, its just guesstimating based on previous experience. When my grandma died of stage 4 cancer, No one outside of immediate friends or family knew for about 2 weeks.


the_star_lord

Which is completely fair and understandable. I never watched the guys content or even heard of him but having watched the final video and reading comments here he seemed like a really cool guy.


etothepi

In the video they specifically request to help keep their anonymity, this flies in the face of that. Techno passed on the 30th, regardless of when his person did.


ObjectiveBranch9735

May this man be in heaven even if he was an atheist and thought he was going to hell but want god to hesitate o7


nazworld92

It’s amazing how positive he stayed even after getting such a diagnosis and having the possibility of being an amputee. I can’t believe how quickly he went from getting all the procedures he needed to loosing his life ☹️. I never heard of him until yesterday but RIP to such a legend.
