Blood for the Blood God!

―Technoblade

Technoblade never dies!

―Technoblade's catchphrase

Alexander "Alex" † (June 1, 1999 - June 2022 [aged 23]),[1][2] better known online as Technoblade (or simply Techno), was an American gaming YouTuber known for his Minecraft content and collaborations with other YouTubers and Twitch streamers. He was a member of the Minecraft server Dream SMP and had a friendly rivalry with Dream.

About

Technoblade created the majority of his videos on the Minecraft server Hypixel. The time range between his video uploads was usually a week to a month, though he had tried (and failed) to do daily episodes. He also streamed Minecraft content live on YouTube, playing on the popular Minecraft server Hypixel, Minecraft Mondays, MC Championship, SMP Earth, Minecraft Story Mode, Party Games and the Dream SMP. He was part of Sleepyboisinc along with Wilbur Soot, Ph1LzA and TommyInnit and had been nicknamed "The Blade" by TommyInnit.

In the past, Technoblade mostly uploaded Blitz Survival Games. His 500th episode special, titled "Ultimate Hunger Games," was his most-viewed video before he gained more popularity. He had also made older videos of him doing things like cooking and green screen content showing his YouTube awards.

Technoblade was well-known throughout the Minecraft community for his skill in PVP (player-versus-player) combat. He earned the [PIG+++] rank on Hypixel for winning the Minecraft Monday tournament four times, more than any other YouTuber. He collaborated numerous times with other famous YouTubers, which many had been through Minecraft Monday, some of whom were teammates during the said event.

In late November 2019, he joined a Minecraft server named SMP Earth, a Factions server where an assortment of YouTubers plays survival on a 3000:1 recreation of the Earth. Technoblade also began streaming different games aside from Minecraft, such as the popular Minecraft spin-off "Minecraft Story Mode", and "Mount & Blade II: Bannerlord", which consists of 5 streams as of June 15. During the Potato War, Technoblade made multiple alternative Minecraft accounts such as Asiyn, Whitelisted, Whitelisted 2, PommesDeTerre, NoHaxCanJustFly, Ender_Gamer09 and BizarreZzz.

Technoblade also played Hypixel's version of Skyblock, which often featured his friends and co-op members, such as Jiyn, TimeDeo and xHascox. Technoblade made an entire series of Hypixel Skyblock and was well-known for being "the fastest man in skyblock," as well as for his three-part Potato War saga in which he fought user Im_a_squid_kid for the #1 potato rank.

Personal life

Technoblade was born on June 1, 1999,[3][4][5] and lived in San Francisco, California.[6] He had three younger sisters and a brother named Chris. Technoblade had made a reference to a younger brother, although it is unclear if he was talking about Chris or if he had another brother.[7] He also had a small dog named Floof.[8]

Technoblade took fencing classes while in middle school. He resided in California for most of the beginning of his YouTube career, attending and graduating high school in the state. In the middle of 2018, after his gap year, Technoblade moved to Iowa City, Iowa and enrolled in the University of Iowa as an creative writing major[9][10] for over a year before moving back to San Francisco after dropping out. He said in one of his Q&A videos from 2016 that his parents were divorced.[11] Up until the end of his life, Technoblade lived with his father, as revealed in a stream when he forgot to mute his microphone.[12] It was also revealed that his father owns a film studio.[13]

In Dream's stream, Remembering Technoblade, Techno's dad talked about his family, making clear that Techno was the oldest among his siblings, which would prove that Chris is his younger brother, and that Techno's oldest sister is around two years younger than him.

Techno made multiple references in his commentary videos and tweets about having ADHD (attention deficit hyperactivity disorder). His ADHD was also confirmed on a Hypixel Forum post from September 27, 2014.[14]

Techno never did an official "face reveal". However, his face has been visible in his 100,000 subscriber special video, in the "Cooking with Technoblade" videos, and at the end of his "playing minecraft hardcore with a steering wheel" stream. He was an agnostic atheist.[15]

Cancer diagnosis

On August 27, 2021, Technoblade uploaded a video titled "where I've been", in which he revealed that he had been diagnosed with sarcoma, a rare bone and soft tissue cancer, in early August after feeling severe pain and swelling in his right arm. The cancer was detected early by doctors, and Techno focused on getting chemotherapy treatments. Later in the video, he urged his viewers to get vaccinated against COVID-19 and take necessary precautions since he was now immunocompromised and at higher risk. Since his announcement, he has received support from many content creators Dream, DanTDM, CaptainSparklez, and other members of the Dream SMP[16], as well as from Roblox YouTubers KreekCraft, HelloItsVG and Ryguyrocky as they used to be Minecraft YouTubers or watch him. Following his announcement, the hashtag #TechnoSupport soon trended on Twitter and other social media platforms for a couple of days.

In the following MC Championship, in which Technoblade did not participate, Dream decided to match every point his team got and donated that amount in dollars to cancer research. Dream was able to raise roughly $21,000 for cancer research. Before the event started, Skeppy, Awesamdude, Finnster, TapL and Grian agreed to individually donate whatever Dream donated as well. Between the five of them, roughly $105,000 ended up being donated. The Aqua Axolotls (Antfrost, Fundy, Tubbo and 5up) agreed to donate $50 every time they swear. The week after his diagnosis, he posted a Sleepyboisinc video.[17] The existence of an unedited video featuring him, Wilbur, Phil and Tommy had been alluded to on Twitter by some of the four before. Phil later confirmed on his Twitter that the video was recorded long before the cancer diagnosis.[18] After that point, he only streamed or uploaded/recorded whenever he had the strength between chemotherapy sessions, and managed to do two lore-streams on the Dream SMP: one on his prison escape, and the other on him Jailbreaking Dream, ConnorEatsPants and Ranboo.[19][20] He also streamed his attempt to beat Minecraft with viewers controlling the game, with viewers donating various awards to aid or prohibit him, and the stream raised roughly $322,900 for sarcoma research.

Additionally (though unrelated), the day he shared his diagnosis was the same day his channel finally surpassed one billion video views, making him one of just over 200 channels to have achieved that milestone.

Surgery and Temporary Recovery

On December 23, 2021, he made an update video with the ominous title "I Almost Became An Amputee". He said that he had scheduled to have his tumor removed in a surgery in October, but his doctors said that they would have to amputate his right arm, and it may have already been too late. After many referrals, the doctors told Technoblade that he could have a limb salvage procedure, in which the doctors would remove some of his bones and muscles, but they would also take out the tumor that caused his cancer in the first place. The second and more painful option would be a full amputation of his right arm. However, the amputation was said to increase his survival rate no further than the limb salvage procedure. They signed him up for a procedure but told him he had to wait for two weeks because the plastic surgeons were busy.

The surgery went quite well, despite Technoblade being in immense pain the week following. They did have to take a few muscles out of his left leg, rendering it inanimate, but the muscle was used to replace the muscle in the shoulder. They also had to take out his right clavicle, leaving him with 205 bones, which he joked advanced him beyond mortal levels. He also joked that his upper body strength was "steamrollered" so he would have to cancel his unannounced boxing match with Floyd Mayweather, Jr.

Minecrafters vs Cancer

On February 1, 2022, he announced the start of the Minecrafters vs. Cancer fundraising event, which was also a response to his cancer battle. Multiple creators joined in by adding the fundraiser to all their videos, while Techno also posted the fundraiser on his streams.

Death

Technoblade died c. June 2022 on an unspecified day, from cancer.

So long nerds

The video uploaded by his family in which they announced his death.

On June 30, 2022, a video was uploaded to Technoblade's channel titled "so long nerds", in which his death was announced by his father, along with a short script written by Technoblade approximately 8 hours before dying, with a slideshow of a few pictures of him.[21] He said this in a message:

Hello everyone, Technoblade here.

If you're watching this, I am dead. So let's sit down and have one final chat. My real name is Alex. I had one of my siblings call me Dave one time in a deleted video from 2016 and it was one of the most successful pranks we've ever done.

Thousands of creepy online dudes trying to get overly personal going, "Oh hey Dave, how's it going?"

Sorry for selling out so much in the past year, but thanks to everyone that bought hoodies, plushies and channel memberships. My siblings are going to college! Well if they want to, I don't wanna put any dead brother peer pressure on them.

But that's all from me. 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. I hope you guys enjoyed my content and that I made some of you laugh. And I hope you all go on to live long, prosperous and happy lives, because I love you guys.

Technoblade out.

―His final words.

Aftermath, tributes, and controversies

Shortly after his death was publicly announced and made headlines on the news, Dream and other members of the Dream SMP expressed their condolences, support, and admiration for him online, as well as the co-founder of Hypixel (Simon Collins-Laflamme), owner of SpaceX and Tesla, Elon Musk, and many more. YouTube Gaming tweeted its condolences to his family, friends, and fans following the release of the video. Minecraft also tweeted its condolences, as well as adding a tribute to him by adding a crown to the pig in the Minecraft: Java Edition launcher, in reference to Technoblade's in-game Minecraft skin and channel branding. They later added a splash text in tribute to Technoblade, with the text reading "Technoblade never dies!" on both Bedrock and Java Editions, after his fans have petitioned his quote to be added on Minecraft. On August 20, 2022, TommyInnit stated that he and the SMP's members already knew about it earlier, from a phone call with Dream a week before the video got released.

In the weeks following Technoblade's death, hundreds of YouTubers released videos as tribute, with many of them continuing the spirit of the Minecrafters vs Cancer initiative by making their video a fundraiser for the Sarcoma Foundation of America. Roblox YouTuber and MC Championship Pride 21 winner KreekCraft, added a fundraiser on his ExplorerElizabeth Livestream, and donated all of the stream's Channel Memberships and Superchats to it at the end of his stream. The tribute video released by animator SAD-ist, using the opening speech from Techno's Hypixel Skyblock video, likewise has a Sarcoma Foundation fundraiser.

In mid-October 2022, Technoblade's father and Dream made a livestream, titled "Remembering Technoblade", which is on Dream's channel, although it is now unlisted, and the stream was also a fundraiser for Sarcoma Foundation, a nonprofit organization dedicated to cancer research.[22]

In late October 2022, to honor the 9th anniversary of the launch date of Technoblade's YouTube channel, which was on October 29, 2013, YouTube themselves uploaded a tribute video for Technoblade titled "Technoblade Never Dies", with the title being based on his iconic quote. In that video, a female narrator from the YouTube team explains the life of Technoblade on YouTube. Moreover, if someone searches up "technoblade" on YouTube, under the search bar, there would be a prompt saying "Did you mean: technoblade never dies", in honor of Technoblade. Around the same timeframe, MrBeast uploaded a challenge video titled 100 Youtuber Minecraft Battle Royale!, which was recorded about a month prior to Technoblade's death. MrBeast contacted Technoblade's father regarding when to upload it, and Technoblade's father agreed for MrBeast to upload it around the anniversary of the launch date of the Technoblade channel.

However, the announcement and subsequent trend led to controversy surrounding abusive behavior and personal use for attention and money (an abusive act known as "milking") from numerous YouTubers and Minecraft players, with the most notorious being ItsOwen, Braso, and DreamSMP Official, the latter being run by a person unrelated to the Dream SMP community. The trend would later end after coverage by penguinz0 and ItsOwen's ban.

Minecraft accounts

Minecraft Java

His account name was "Technoblade", and he mainly played on Hypixel (Skywars/Bedwars). He competed in Minecraft Mondays and MC Championship. He also owned the accounts Whitelisted, BizzarreZz, PommesDeTerre and Whitelisted2 (latter known as MrBeastGoon27) as shown in his Great Potato War videos, qqng, shown in his "bedwars youtube event w/ AciDic BliTzz, Mydoeza, ShadowApples, a lot of people really" video, as well as coolperson147, as mentioned in his “The art of a balanced breakfast - survival games montage” video. His account "Whitelisted" was originally created for a joke.[23] Technoblade also owned the accounts Technogrenade, used in "Alt Account! - Solo Skywars #12" back in 2016, and SuspicousPIgman.

History

StudioLore and Derp Squad

Before the creation of his main YouTube channel, "Technoblade", he had another channel named "StudioLore", in which he posted a relatively small amount of irregular low-quality Team Fortress 2 videos and one Roblox Sword Fight On The Heights video. In his time on this channel, he accumulated around 50 subscribers. Technoblade was around 10 years old when he started publishing videos on this channel. He mentioned this older channel in his 1 million subscriber's special video and talked about it in detail.

Technoblade's first Minecraft content was posted on another channel, named "Derp Squad". The channel seems to have been created specifically for collaborations with his brother but was abandoned when the "Technoblade" channel was made. All videos on this channel were uploaded in August 2013, about a month after the StudioLore channel went inactive and roughly two months before the creation of the "Technoblade" channel.

Motivation

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 on the Hypixel servers, 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 was apparently "all part of his master plan" and supposedly increased his motivation to tryhard his YouTube career even more than usual. Despite not having reached 10 million subscribers at the time, he still gained the [PIG], [PIG+], [PIG++], and [PIG+++] ranks 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.

Dream SMP

Technoblade joined the Dream SMP on September 23, 2020. He coined himself an Anarchist and was convinced by TommyInnit and Wilbur Soot to help them overthrow the corrupt government of the nation of L'Manburg, led by jschlatt and Quackity. However, when Tommy's side thought the war was over, Wilbur pressed a button that set off loads of buried TNT, which destroyed a large part of L'Manburg.

When Tommy tried to organize a new government to take control, Technoblade turned against them as he wanted a society without any governments, and he and Dream went on a killing spree. He was banished from L'Manburg and retired to a faraway land, putting his dreams of anarchy across the server on hold but secretly preparing for the next war. He later found the now-banished TommyInnit squatting in his house. Tommy was hiding from Dream and wanted Technoblade's help to get back some Music Discs that had sentimental value to him. When the new L'Manburg government sent a hit squad after Technoblade, Techno decided to end his retirement, teaming up with Dream to destroy L'Manburg once and for all. TommyInnit, who wasn't willing to go that far, betrayed Techno and joined the other side, but Technoblade and Dream pulled off their plan and annihilated the city. Shortly after the war, Technoblade allied with Ranboo, Niki Nihachu, and Ph1LzA. As the influence of the mysterious mind-controlling entity known as "The Egg" spread across the remains of L'Manburg, Technoblade's group grew further with people intent on acting against it.

Tournaments Joined

Minecraft Mondays

In 2019, Technoblade participated in Keemstar's Minecraft event, Minecraft Mondays, 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, changed to $5,000 past week three. He won four times: week one, week two, week six, and week ten. He took part in the minigame-based event with other popular YouTubers and/or streamers including Skeppy, CaptainSparklez, Speedyw03, Vikkstar123, DanTDM, JeromeASF, jschlatt, MrBeast, Lachlan, PewDiePie, James Charles, Ninja, LazarBeam and more.

In this event, Technoblade had the unique opportunity to fight and kill celebrities and his childhood heroes for money (or, as Techno says, "Blood for the Blood God!"). 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. In the end, he won a total of $15,000 from the Minecraft Monday tournament series.

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 million subs.

However, Technoblade and his teammate, Junky Janker, are in the running for the victors of MM week 7 since they were only 2 points behind the 1st place team, BadBoyHalo, and Skeppy.

Week 14

The main game was cancelled due to a hacker hacking the Minecraft Monday server. Techno was going to team with Wispexe on week 14. However, Techno instead played Hypixel with 7 other YouTubers and tied for first place with TapL.

MC Championship

In 2020, Technoblade participated in Noxcrew and Dangthatsalongname's MC Championship event, an event where YouTubers and streamers would come together to play a wide variety of fancy minigames. The tournament consists of 10 teams and 40 players, featuring a variety of custom minigames. The prize is a special MCC coin by Noxcrew.

Techno was the only player in the said tournament to have played in more than one event and never leave the Top 10 Individual Leaderboard.

Techno and Quig are the only 2 players in the tournament to have scored Top 2 Individual with a team 5th place and lower.

Techno holds the Individual point record in the tournament, with an Individual score of 4307 points. Techno also holds the record for the highest point differential over 2nd place; his lead was almost 1000 points.

Techno also has the second-highest debut MCC performance ever with a whopping 3665 points, only behind TommyInnit with 3686.

In MCC P21, teammate Wilbur Soot experienced an unexpected fire alarm during Game 5, Parkour Tag. After the round, Noxcrew temporarily substituted Ph1LzA while Wilbur was away dealing with the fire alarm. Wilbur returned to MCC after Game 6, Battle Box. The team also came 3rd by 2 points to the Orange Ocelots, with scores 22765 and 22767, respectively.

Minecraft Ultimate Hunger Games

MC Ultimate is a Minecraft Hunger Games event for 250+ streamers. Organized by Pikaclicks, or Noah, it is known as the largest hunger games event held in the MC Community. Based around raising money for charity, participants received in-game items for their fans' donations to charity. On July 24, 2020, it was announced that Technoblade would be participating in Season 2 of the event as a last-minute add-on/replacement.

  • MC Ultimate Season 1: Did not participate.
  • MC Ultimate Season 2: Teamed with Calvin and xNestorio. Placed 1st individually, and his team placed 1st overall, winning the event.
    • Technoblade was added last-minute as a replacement for 2 members on the team.
    • Due to Technoblade's large fanbase, the team got a huge advantage in items from donations. Technoblade described the setup as "pay to win" and aptly named his video about it "Absolutely Ruining a $36,000 Minecraft Tournament".
    • He got 47 kills in the tournament, setting a record for most kills in a single MCU event.
    • Calvin placed second for kills with 40 kills, and Nestor placed third for kills with 29 kills.
    • Altogether, the team scored 116 kills overall, setting a new record for most eliminations in a team in one event. This is especially notable because this team only consisted of 3 players. The previous record was 19 by Lego Maestro.
    • Techno alone raised $11,625 for charity out of the $36,264 raised overall in the event.
    • Due to the imbalance, all other teams joined up to fight them, resulting in a final battle of their team of 3 vs 21 survivors. The trio wiped them all out and won the event.

MrBeast 100K Duel

After the MC Championships 8 Teams were announced, MrBeast indicated that he would like to have Technoblade and Dream duel for $100,000. They both agreed and started to train immensely. The duel was set to take place on Thursday, August 27, 2020, and was not streamed live. The results of the Duel were announced on a Video Premiere on MrBeast's Gaming channel, MrBeast Gaming, on August 29, 2020. The Duel consisted of fairly basic kits and 10 battles, 5 in 1.16 PVP and 5 in 1.8 PVP.

Round Version Winner
1 1.8 Technoblade
2 1.16 Dream
3 1.8 Technoblade
4 1.16 Technoblade
5 1.8 Dream
6 1.16 Dream
7 1.8 Technoblade
8 1.16 Dream
9 1.8 Technoblade
10 1.16 Technoblade

Technoblade won the 100K duel against Dream, 6-4. They quickly made analysis videos later, showcasing their POVs, and Techno and Dream agreed to split the money beforehand, regardless of the outcome. However, many of Dream's fans showed backlash against Technoblade winning the duel, although Technoblade expressed to his fans not to send hate towards anyone, as in the end, it was a close and good fight.

Controversy

In early January 2021, Twitter users found a tweet from 2017 in which Technoblade said "was Hitler a lesbian?". The historical context was that Nazi German Dictator Adolf Hitler was proven to have treated lesbians less harshly than other groups from the LGBTQ+ community. This tweet blew up, with a lot of people dismissing it as stupid and not controversial. However, after this, Techno went dead silent on any forms of social media for the next few weeks, as well as making a large chunk of his older videos that had content of this nature private. Later, an unknown user published a thread "exposing" Sleepybois, Inc., which contained him, Wilbur Soot, TommyInnit, and Ph1LzA, supposedly being racist and homophobic. This tweet got over 40,000 likes, with many people saying they agreed and would stop watching those channels. After Connor Pugs made his video on the situation, a lot of the hate died down and the tweet subsided, but not before #Technosupport went trending on Twitter. In April, people once again tried to expose him for supposedly racist comments he made in the past, and supporters went as far as doxxing Techno, revealing his address and the names of his parents and little sisters. After these tweets blew up, #Technosupport went trending once again. Despite the nature of these claims, none of these three situations affected his subscriber growth, and he continued growing at a steady rate.

As you carefully navigate your absurd circumstance, you gain a new appreciation for the few things you have, as you meticulously use them to their fullest effect. With nothing but some ice, lava, and saplings, you slowly transform this empty expanse into a world of your very own. Skyblock teaches us that no matter how ridiculous the odds may seem, within us resides the power to overcome these obstacles and achieve something beautiful.
