The Technoblade is dead. The Minecraft YouTuber, who is battling stage 4 cancer, revealed his death in a video posted on Thursday, reading a letter his father wrote him hours before he died. Technoblade was 23 years old.

“Hello, everyone, Technoblade here. If you’re watching this, I’m dead. So let’s sit down and have one last conversation,” he said in the letter, years of keeping it private, before revealing his real name. started after.

“My real name is Alex,” he shared. “A brother of mine once called me Dave in a deleted video from 2016. It was one of the most successful pranks we’ve ever made.”

TechnoBlade continued the letter apologizing to its 11 million-plus subscribers for “selling out so much in the past year,” adding, “Thanks to everyone who bought hoodies, plushies and Chanel subscriptions. My siblings are going to college. “

“Well, if they want to. I don’t want to put any dead brother peer pressure on them,” he quipped.

He ended his letter by saying, “Thank you all for supporting my stuff over the years. If I had a hundred more lives, I think I’d choose to be a technoblade every now and then because they’re my life.” I hope you guys enjoyed my stuff and I made some of you laugh. And I hope you all live long, prosperous and happy lives, because I love you guys Am. Technoblade out.”

Technoblade’s father then appeared onscreen, and explained what his son’s final video was like.

“We’ve been talking for a few months that Alex is doing a final video. Sometimes he makes it a face reveal,” his father said. “We were going to shoot it in his living room, but we waited too long. Then we were going to shoot it from his bed. He wanted him to write everything down ahead of time, and I think He was having a hard time concentrating on all the different things that were attached to him. He has always been particular about his environment and that really took it away from the mental state he wanted to write in.”

Eventually, Technoblade asked his father to read a letter to him, but “was finding it difficult to write.”

“At some point, I got down on my knee on his bed and I said to him, ‘Alex, you don’t need to do anything else. You’ve done so much for so many people, millions. If you want to now’ , you can relax. But if you want to write one last video, and you’re just waiting for things to get a little better, I’d say don’t wait. I don’t think things are going to get any better, ‘” her father recalled through tears. “It looked like he reached out to her and asked for my laptop and then she wrote a few paragraphs.”

“I don’t think he said everything he wanted to say, but I think he got the main points,” said Technoblade’s father. “He finished it and then he was done. He lived about eight hours after that. We all said goodbye.”

The Technoblade’s father wrapped up his message as “the most amazing kid anyone could ever ask for”, praising his son.

“I miss Technoblade,” he said. “Thank you all, for everything. You meant so much to him.”

The video ended with a message that was shown onscreen, eventually penned by the late YouTuber’s mother.

“He avoided personal fame and worked hard to keep his true identity confidential, and we ask you to respect his privacy and his desire to protect the privacy of his family,” Technoblade’s mom continued. kept. “This past year had a lot of tough spots for our son as he battled stage 4 cancer. But he didn’t complain, and used his famous strategic mind to try to beat him, which he used to overcome nearly impossible odds. knew about.”
