Reading tonight about a gamer named Technoblade. In the space of a few hours since it was uploaded, a farewell video to his fans – narrated by his father- is #1 in three countries, as well as within Reddit. Stats say Technoblade has 11 million followers but in the still-small hours of July 1st, learning this man succumbed to cancer has the YT views over 12 million. It’s profoundly moving to watch Technoblade – Alex’s – father hold the families’ concerned poodle on his lap while talking about his son’s long connection to the Minecraft gaming community.
As frustrating as the Internet can be at times – writhing with venon and untrue stories – when it gets Connection right, it’s delivering on the greatness its developers envisioned.
I’m sorry for your loss, people and also, fuck cancer.
