The Esports community lost a legend as Geoff ‘iNcontroL’ Robinson died “suddenly” over the weekend.
His cause of death has not yet been released, but was confirmed via friends and family on social media. Robinson had made mention of health issues in recent months on Twitter, but was still streaming as of last week.
With immense grief, we announce Geoff’s unexpected passing due to sudden illness Saturday. We ask privacy as his family works to understand what happened and make arrangements. To honor Geoff or offer comfort to his family, we suggest donations to @SoCalBulldog, which he loved.

Robinson was one of the founding personalities of esports as a StarCraft 2 pro, and continued on as a well-known commentator and streamer.
The gaming community has been pumping out tributes to the fallen figure across social media.
