Minecraft YouTube Star Technoblade he died after losing a battle with stage four cancer. She was 23 years old.
A video called “See you later nerds” was uploaded to the Technoblade channel, starring the youtuber’s father. The video contained a message read by the father, telling the viewer of him that he had died.
The father apologized for the “sale” of Technoblade, but noted that it was worth it because he was able to help his siblings go to college (if they wanted to). The message ended with him wishing his viewers would enjoy his content and live happy and prosperous lives. The video also revealed that Technoblade’s real name was Alex and not Dave as many viewers thought.
According to the father, the couple talked about making a final video, such as a face reveal, but couldn’t because they waited too long. The father also noticed that Technoblade wanted to write everything he wanted to say in advance, but he had problems due to the condition he was in.
“And I told him, ‘Alex, you don’t have to do anything else. You have done so much for so many people, millions of people. And if you want now, you can rest. But if you want to write one last video and you’re waiting for things to get a little better, then I’d say “don’t wait”. I don’t think things will ever get better.”
Technoblade lived another eight hours after writing his final message.
