Technoblade neva dies


Dave B. (born: June 1, 1999 (1999-06-01) [age 20]), better known online as Technoblade (also known as Techno the Pig or just Techno), is an American Minecraft YouTuber and streamer. He makes the majority of his videos on the Minecraft server Hypixel. The time range between his video uploads is usually 1 week to 1 month although he has tried and failed to do daily episodes. He has also done many Minecraft livestreams, including ones on BedWars, Minecraft Monday, MC Championship, SMP Earth, and Minecraft Story Mode. In the past Technoblade mostly uploded Blitz Survial Games and had a 500th episode special titled "Ultimate Hunger Games" which has been his number one viewed video for a long time before he entered later stage of his channel and gained more fame.

He has gained [PIG+++] rank on the popular Minecraft server Hypixel for winning the tournament Minecraft Monday four times. He has stated many times that he has hot elbows, one of which he has revealed at 1 million subs on August 18, 2019. He also has 3 sisters and a dog named Floof, whom he occasionally uses for views.

Technoblade is very well known throughout the Minecraft community for being very good at Player vs. Player combat. He has had many collaborations with other famous YouTubers, many of which have been through Minecraft Monday, some of which have even been teammates during the said event. He has also made many likely embarrassing older videos of him doing things like cooking, and relatively poorly made green screen content. Hypixel continues to be his main means of obtaining views. However, in late November of 2019, he joined a Minecraft server named SMP Earth, a Factions server where an assortment of YouTubers play survival on a 3000:1 recreation of the Earth. As of April, he has started streaming Minecraft story mode.

Also from Techno's channel, you can see him in Hypixel's Skyblock gamemode, where he plays along with TimeDeo and xHascox.



Before the creation of his main YouTube channel, "Technoblade", he published videos on a channel he created many years ago named "StudioLore", in which he posted a very small amount of irregular low-quality Team Fortress 2 videos. Technoblade was around the age of 13 when he published videos on his older channel. He has only mentioned this older channel in his 1 million subscriber's special video and talks about it in detail.


In Technoblade's video "the quest for the [PIG] rank", he says that he created the channel for the sole purpose of being confident and getting 10 million subscribers. But, when he met someone with the 3-coloured [McProHosting] rank he quickly decided that he "needed to get an even cooler rank." Technoblade came up with the idea to have a uniquely colored rank called the [PIG] rank. When he tweeted Hypixel how many subscribers he would need to acquire this rank, Hypixel responded with 10 million. This is apparently "all part of his master plan" and supposedly increased his motivation to tryhard his YouTube career even more than usual. Despite not yet reaching 10 million subscribers, he still gained the [PIG], [PIG+], [PIG++], and [PIG+++] rank after Hypixel donated in his Minecraft Monday stream, stating that he would get [PIG] rank if he'd win the tournament. Following that victory, another plus sign would be added to his rank with each extra win in the event. The [PIG+++……] later became a meme and an inside joke among his audience, and he constantly uses [PIG++++(?)] in his thumbnails.

Minecraft Monday

In 2019, Technoblade participated in Keemstar's Minecraft Monday event, an event where YouTubers and streamers would come together to play a wide variety of minigames, and the prize for winning was set as $10,000 dollars to be split between the first-place team. He took part in the minigame-based event with other popular YouTubers and/or streamers including CaptainSparklez, Speedyw03, Vikkstar123, DanTDM, ASFJerome, jschlattMrBeast, Lachlan, PewDiePie, James Charles, Ninja and more. In this event, Technoblade had the unique opportunity to fight and kill celebrities and his childhood heroes for money. Hypixel, the owner of the biggest Minecraft server in the world and the server Technoblade mainly makes videos on, sent a donation promising that if he won the tournament, he would be given [PIG] rank for 1 week. Minecraft Monday contributed many subscribers and viewers to Technoblade's channel, due to the competition being held by Keemstar, and being more mainstream.

  • Week 1: In the first week of Minecraft Monday, Technoblade won the event with ShotGunRaids and received the $5,000 payment, as well as the prestigious [PIG] rank, which Hypixel was originally only going to give to Technoblade after he hit 10,000,000 subs.
  • Week 2: In the second week of Minecraft Monday, teamed with iBallisticSquid, he won a second time, this time only receives a $2,500 reward. Additionally, he received the [PIG+] rank on Hypixel.
  • Week 3: In the third week of Minecraft Monday, Techno was teamed with ChrisO2, and there was an assortment of games including dropper, parkour, and more.

MC Championship

In 2020, Technoblade participated in Noxcrew's and Dangthatsalongname's MC Championship event, an event where YouTubers and streamers would come together to play a wide variety of fancy minigames. He wasn't invited to MCC 1 but joined in MCC 2, teamed with Wilbur Soot, Dangthatsalongname, and Strawburry17. In MCC 3, he teamed with Wilbur Soot, RTGame, and ToxxxicSupport. In MCC 4, he teamed with Wilbur Soot, Ph1LzA, and TommyInnit, and his team got first place by many points, won the finals, and Techno himself was in the lead individually by nearly 1000 points.
