Minecraft YouTuber Technoblade has died following a battle with stage four cancer. The 23 year old, whose name is Alex, had more than 10.8 million followers on his channel.
A touching farewell video was uploaded in which Technoblade’s father read a farewell message from the YouTuber, which thanked fans for their continued support over the nine years he created content.
“If I had another hundred lives, I think I would choose to be Technoblade again every single time as those were the happiest years of my life,” his message read. “I hope you guys enjoyed my content and that I made some of you laugh, and I hope you all go on to live long, prosperous, and happy lives, because I love you guys. Technoblade out.”
Known for being quite private, Technoblade only revealed his real name in the farewell message, but shared last year that he had been diagnosed with cancer in his right arm. His father explained in the video that Technoblade passed away just a few hours after writing the message.
His mother also shared a written message at the end of the video. “[Technoblade] avoided personal fame and worked hard to keep his true identity confidential, and we ask you to continue to honour his wishes to protect his privacy and the privacy of his family,” it said.
“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.”
