Unfortunately, we have some sad news at the end of the day. Byron "Reckful" Bernstein - one of the most famous World of Warcraft streamers - committed suicide last wednesday. He was 31 years old. Sad news was confirmed on Twitter by several of his friends.

Reckful became known in 2009 thanks to his PvP skills in World of Warcraft. For six seasons in a row he was the person with the highest number of points in the ranking. In later years, the streamer was also played Hearthstone (he got banned in WoW for sharing his account with others).
