Geoff «iNcontroL» Robinson døde lørdag etter å ha blitt plutselig syk. Vi fikk vite om hans bortgang i en uttalelse som ble lagt ut på hans Twitter-konto natt til mandag.
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.— Geoff Robinson (@iNcontroLTV) July 22, 2019
De siste årene har Robinson figurert i hovedsak som streamer og nettpersonlighet innenfor spilling, men han er mest kjent for tiden da han fokuserte på StarCraft II. Robinson var en proffspiller i StarCraft II under Evil Geniuses i tiden etter at spillet ble lansert, men gikk etter hvert over til å jobbe mer som en StarCraft II-kommentator og -vert.
Siden dødsfallet ble kjent har mange andre kjente e-sport- og spill-personligheter kondolert offentlig på Twitter.
I've known Geoff for almost 20 years. We played Brood War in high school & college and did years of SC2/BW events together. Geoff was a one-of-a-kind person. I'll miss you man. I'm so sad. https://t.co/Rcv6qb1sEs— Sean Plott (@day9tv) July 22, 2019

Also thanks to my brothers @CallMeTasteless @Artosis @RotterdaM08 for letting me know before the news broke out publicly and for being here when i was told. I love you guys. https://t.co/9bfdhg67uW— ToD (@YoanMerlo) July 22, 2019
