Reckful: Tributes paid after gaming star's death

'Lost an icon': Death of popular streamer, 31, rocks gaming world

Popular video gamer Byron Bernstein also known as Reckful left his fans in a state of shock as he died. RIP, "Gary wrote of the player based in Austin, Texas". News of the streamer, whose real name is Byron Bernstein, passing away emerged yesterday (Thursday July 2) around 5pm United Kingdom time. "If you have stories and pictures of him, share them".

A pioneer in the streaming landscape and an elite Rogue player with 3000 rating in PvP, he will be remembered by his loving friends, family, and fans. His ex-girlfriend Blue also revealed the news in a series of heart-wrenching Twitter posts. One of Byron's older brothers died by suicide when he was a child, according to theDaily Mail.

The gaming community is sharing their grief at his passing.

Following the news of Reckful's death, thousands of World of Warcraft players gathered for an enormous memorial across Azeroth, flocking to the Stormwind Cathedral from all corners (even Horde lands) of the digital world.

In his last posts on Twitter, Reckful proposed to his girlfriend.

"I didn't see the proposal until it was too late but that doesn't change the fact that I wasn't able to be there for him", she tweeted. "I'm crying non stop, I related to him in so many aspects outside of the obvious", wrote Hearthstone veteran Drew "TidesofTime" Biessener, while condemning the people who treat streamers with disrespect, hate, and abuse. U were and always will be a legend in my life so in that way you'll never die. In an interview, Bernstein said that he never felt this way in life but he was also not sure if his happy life is forever. "Will you marry me, becca?" he tweeted. I have not seen her in 6 months. "He was awesome. He taught me how to have fun, to experience more, and challenged me to try to be more than what I was", Becca wrote about her ex.

LG's rollable smartphone to arrive early next year with a BOE screen
Mum's the word on that last one, but there is still plenty of time for more details to leak about Wing, Project B , or Rainbow. Now we have come across a new revelation, according to which LG will launch rollable smartphones in 2021 codenamed project B .

The touching gesture was the largest in-game player-driven event in the history of World of Warcraft.

That soul-searching will no doubt continue, now with an added focus on mental health, as gaming communities figure out how to be a safer and more inclusive place. "I had this vague idea of what it was and embarrassingly thought that I could help with trivial bullsh*t", she continued. He was a pillar of the WoW community and inspired so many players.

"As we process this loss, we have to recognise that the stigma around mental health and treatment often prevents people from seeking and getting the help they need".

"If you have difficulties or know someone who is, there are many organizations and people who want to help", the statement concluded.
