Today, official social media accounts of Geoff "iNcontroL" Robinson revealed the gaming personality, host, commentator, and former StarCraft 2 player passed away yesterday at the age of 33. The exact cause of death has not been revealed, but the official statement reveals it was due to a sudden illness.

Before his death, Robinson had his hands in esports commentary, and was also a media coach, gaming personality, and a streamer. Before this, he played StarCraft 2 at a professional level as the captain of the inaugural Evil Geniuses StarCraft pro-gaming team.

As the statement above alludes to, he was well-loved in the esports communities he participated in, especially the competitive StarCraft scene, which he's been a large contributor to for many years. When he wasn't busy with commentating, Robinson was known to stream all types of games over on his Twitch channel, but he specialized in strategy titles.
