Bernstein was famous for streaming World of Warcraft and Hearthstone. Fans on World of Warcraft servers are getting together in the Stormwind Cathedral to pay their respects. The streamer ranked as number one in 2009 in PvP for six seasons straight. As a WoW player, he was so good that he won many tournaments and events, including Major League Gaming WoW’s tournament in 2010. He eventually began playing competitive Hearthstone and he casted professional matches.
Bernstein was suspended from Twitch earlier this year from violating its code of conduct. He was also famously banned from WoW years ago for sharing his account. Reckful’s Twitch channel is followed by thousands. The streamer struggled with mental health issues for years. Bernstein had depression and had bi-polar disorder. He was vocal about his issues with mental illness, and he tweeted today before he passed away.
ahh, i feel bad for anyone who has to deal with my insanity
