How Technoblade Minecraft YouTuber Died?
Technoblade Minecraft YouTuber revealed to fans last year that he had been diagnosed with cancer.
His father read aloud the farewell message he wrote hours before his death: “Hello, this is Technoblade. If you’re watching this. I am dead.”
He went on to reveal that his real name was Alex, recalling the time he tricked viewers into thinking his name was Dave.
“Thank you all for supporting my content over the years,” he continued. “If I had another hundred lives, I believe I would choose to be Technoblade every time because those were the happiest years of my life.”
In a fundraising video posted in February, the online star, who won Minecraft tournaments and legions of fans by talking about his life in a humorous way while playing the game, explained that he had undergone chemotherapy, radiation therapy, and a limb salvage operation after developing a painful tumour in his right arm.
In August 2021, he disclosed his cancer diagnosis, explaining that he initially thought the pain he was experiencing was from a repetitive stress injury caused by excessive gaming. He went to the hospital after his arm swelled and was later diagnosed with cancer.
Little is known about Technoblade, who hid his true identity until the very end. His online avatar, however, was a crowned pig.
