A community brought to its knees by the sudden death of Byron 'Reckful' Bernstein

On the evening of July 2nd, 2020, thousands
across the world were stunned into silence and tears to hear that Byron ‘Reckful’
Bernstein had passed away – and across Twitter, thousands were seen sending
their love to the famous streamer.

There are few in the gaming community who do not know who
Reckful is – from the older generation of World of Warcraft players to
Hearthstone fans and thousands across the entirety of the Twitch community, Reckful
touched many lives across the globe. As a WoW player, Reckful was once counted
amongst the world’s elite and the exact same can be said for Hearthstone. But over
and far beyond that, Reckful was a personality that really brought joy to those
who watched him. Below you can see just what he meant to the entire world in
just a few Tweets – including words from people like Asmongold, Sodapoppin,
Arteezy, Rich Campbell and thousands more not shown here.

These Tweets are not the only thing that showed the love for
Reckful as across the entire World of Warcraft community, players moved to the
Stormwind Chapel and gathered in massive numbers to pay their respects. Servers
such as Argent Dawn in Europe, Moonguard in NA and many others all had
thousands of players line up and kneel down in a silent homage to the lost
player. Below are some images from both Argent Dawn and Ravencrest as well as
others taken from Twitter. According to reports, the Argent Dawn server
eventually crashed due to the sheer amount of people coming to show their love.

Oddly enough, Reckful was permanently banned from WoW some time ago due to account sharing but there seems to be a massive outcry from the community for Blizzard to add a shrine or memorial to him in the form of the PVP vendor for the upcoming Shadowlands expansion. Reckful’s lasting legacy will be Everland, a game that he was looking to release this year which encapsulates everything which he enjoyed and stood for.

All that aside, Reckful will be missed by an entire community across the world –

Rest in Peace, legend.
