Popular YouTuber Technoblade has died following a short year-long battle with cancer. Known for his amusing Minecraft videos, Technoblade.
While Technoblade largely kept his personal life a secret, his true first name was Alex, as was disclosed in a video that was uploaded after his passing and contained his farewell message to his admirers. The YouTuber’s father shared Technoblade’s parting message with his followers in the video.
The well-known YouTuber thanked viewers for buying his goods and said the money will go toward paying for his siblings’ college tuition. Technoblade said that he “would chose to be Technoblade again every single time” if he had “a hundred lives.” The happiest years of my life were those.
Remember when Technoblade claimed to have been born in late 1999 or early 2000 in a tweet from December 2021? The YouTuber did not provide a birthdate confirmation in his final message.
In a statement released on Thursday, Technoblade’s family said, “We, the family of Technoblade, wanted you all to know just how much he liked and valued his fans and coworkers.”
The statement said, “Technoblade was constantly devising methods to please and reward his fans from his first online days. “Even after his eventual achievements, he still found a way to maintain his good-natured modesty, juggling his confidence and self-deprecation with a charming equilibrium. We kindly ask you to respect his desires to preserve his and his family’s privacy by not disclosing his genuine identify and avoiding personal celebrity.
“As our son fought stage 4 cancer, this last year had many trying times. He realised the odds were nearly insurmountable, yet he didn’t complain and kept trying to defeat them with his renowned strategic thinking. All of us who had the opportunity of walking this route with MY son were inspired by his fortitude. I appreciate you sharing his experience as he worked hard to please his devoted followers.
In the summer of 2021, Technoblade took an unexpected vacation from posting videos, but he made a surprise comeback in August with a video telling followers he had cancer.
