Technoblade

On June 1, 1999, famous YouTuber Technoblade was born in San Francisco, California. He created a Youtube channel in 2013 when he was 14 years old. On his channel, he recorded himself playing a variety of games online with other people and posted them on his channel. Minecraft, an imagination building game, was the main game that he played, although he occasionally played other games. Technoblade, who’s name was revealed later to be Alexander, was one of the strongest players to be found in the game of online Minecraft. He knew just about everything about fighting in the game, which was important because players can attack other players and losing a battle would mean losing your experience and possessions to the winning player.


He dropped out of college to become a full time Minecraft player in 2018. He was able to support himself by being a popular channel on Youtube, with lots of views and subscribers. The more subscribers he had the more money he earned. His sense of humor during gameplay, combined with his exceptional playing skills, made his videos hilarious and fun to watch.


Not much is known about his personal life, like many other Youtubers. He loved to challenge himself by making the game harder for entertainment purposes. One time, he beat Minecraft with a gaming steering wheel. This was difficult because the controls are all different and Minecraft is a hard game to beat. This made a very entertaining and funny video, showing why he was one of the more popular gaming YouTubers of his time.


In June 2022, Technoblade died after a year-long battle with an aggressive cancer called Sarcoma. He was 23 years old. Knowing his time was short, he posted messages for his fans in his last hours and had his father read a farewell message, thanking his followers and fans for their support in a Youtube video called “so long nerds.” A portion of the merchandise sales from his website, www.technoblade.com, goes to supporting the Sarcoma Foundation of America.
