It’s very sad news. After his long struggle with cancer he died at the age of 33.
I didn’t watch a lot of his videos, but the couple I did watch were quite entertaining and to the point. It is indeed a loss.
This just plain sucks… i really liked TB, one of the few people i wouldn’t have mind meeting in my life, even if it was just to say hello.
This is really sad news indeed. While I may not have agreed with TB on all his points, I always respected him for what he did for the gaming community in general. He was a titan in the industry and will surely be missed by everyone.
It’s very tragic when someone dies so young.
RIP, its a shame for sure
The man sometimes annoyed me but i can honestly say that i always respected what he said and did for gaming in general. He said what he wanted and meant what he said and that I’ll always admire him for.
Thought it would be appropriate to paste a story his wife shared on Twitter in response to a supportive message from the Fortnite account:
Do you know what’s strange but kind of lovely? During the hepatic coma he was slipping into several hours before passing, TB was still reviewing and talking about @FortniteGame in his sleep.
sad news indeed. i quite enjoyed his reviews. Plus sits always tragic when someone young dies from a dread disease
That is what I loved about the man even if you don’t agree with him he made great high quality content. I will miss the shoutcrafts he dit some of the funnest matches I have ever seen.
He also saved me a ton of money for games I had on my wishlist and after watching WTF and seeing if I might like or not like it.
Yo, cancer! FUCK YOU!!
RIP TB, o7 & much F good sir.
Ok that got me, friend of mine phoned me this morning on my way to work to tell me the news.
33 years of age. That’s just f***ed, man.
But cancer is one hell of a kak!
Same here, but mostly because I don’t watch that many videos. But whenever I wanted to find out about a specific game, i’d generally trust what he would have to say.
