“Hello everyone, Technoblade here. If you’re watching this, I am dead,” reads the father on his behalf.
“Thank you all for supporting my content over the years. 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.”
“He was the most amazing kid anyone could ever ask for,” said his father. “I miss Technoblade. Thank you to all of you, for everything. You meant a lot to him.”
Millions of fans will be grieving

I’m not a Minecraft fan, but I know of Technoblade, due to my young son. Like many, my son has been enjoying Technoblade’s content for years.
My son told me the news before leaving for school this morning. He’s understandably upset by his passing. Thankfully, I know he’s not alone.
