(CNN)   Minecraft Youtuber Technoblade has lost his year-long battle with cancer. Eight hours before his death, he asked his Dad to read one final message to his fans. I'm not crying, you're crying. Actually, scratch that, I'm crying   (cnn.com) divider line

Having been subjected to I don't know how much Minecraft Youtube by my kids, I can say this guy's channel was solid and his heart was in the right place.  Fark cancer.

Techno was more than your average YouTuber.

His charitable work alone was incredible. He was an amazing, talented person and will be missed by millions.

Nice to hear.  Every time Minecraft streaming came across my desk it always seemed to involve colossal asshats or snake things.  Fark cancer.

The second worst thing to ever happen to those orphans.

The video from his Dad is so touching.

My daughter is a huge fan and cried for hours last night.

He got a lot of kids and young adults through a lot of stuff with his humor and selflessness.

If you watch nothing else, besides his So Long Nerds, check out Potato Wars Part 1 & 2.

Genuinely funny and entertaining as hell.

He made great content.

I have zero context for this but he seemed charming.

They only give you his first name and some pictures of him sick.  It's a long way from there to showing up on his lawn with camera crews, which is what I expect they meant.

Yep, my 9-year-old has been a wreck since yesterday. Poor kid has never experienced it with a close family member, so this hit him pretty hard.

He asked his dad to read the message in the video and release that video, you chucklef*ck.

I have a practical solution: let's all insult cancer and swear at it as if it has feelings we can hurt.

I'm assuming rob has at least 15 million people following him.

I'm sad about any death like that, but don't think "Minecraft YouTuber" should have been a real thing in the first place.  RIP though.

Same here.  This guy might be the only Youtube celebrity I could have identified because my seven year old watched all his stuff.

I doubt she knows he's dead, or even what that would mean, but that sucks, and fark cancer.

Then just call him an entertainer, since that's what he was. These streamers are no different than radio talk show hosts or whatever, but the hook is games instead of sports, politics, etc. People like their personalities, so they watch and listen to pass the time.

I'm not into this stuff, either, but once I got over my initial old man "why does this exist" reaction, I realized it's just a variation on that stuff for people of a different generation. I'm still not into it, but that's because I didn't grow up with it.

Never thought I'd see the day when you earned good money having people watch you game. In my day, you were an asshole for holding the controller if you died. No, no one dies in games anymore, either. In real life, however...

With the top tier YouTubers it's not just about the games, it's a character and a brand. The games are just part of it, the group improv stuff is another part and sometimes, just chatting is one of the largest, most popular parts.

I've never heard of the guy, but based on this thread I'm going to check out his stuff.

Too much of the MC YT stuff is trolling and general assholishness. It will be good to see the kind of person described in most of these comments.

What did cancer do to deserve getting him? I'd feel bad for the cancer.

I followed a link from a Reddit thread to this one. Silly and he seems to be having a great time.
And also MC battle Royale is apparently a thing.

someone should tell you about the NFL.  It's no different.  Kids develop an affinity with certain gamers a actively root for them to win.
