Former StarCraft 2 pro Geoff Robinson, aka iNcontroL, died on Sunday Australian time “due to sudden illness”.

A statement released via Robinson’s official social media accounts announced his passing earlier today:

Robinson was a former StarCraft 2 pro with Evil Geniuses, before later moving into a broader esports career as a commentator, host and streamer. He is being remembered as a prominent and beloved member of the game’s community.

As the statement requests, anyone wishing to offer support can make a donation to Southern California Bulldog Rescue, an organisation which Robinson supported.


  • Whoa what. “Sudden illness”? Geez. This is a huge shock. There’s undoubtedly more to this but I guess we’ll need to wait and see.

    Speaking from unfortunate personal experience, part of me isn’t ruling out suicide here. Back in high school I was told one of my mates had been admitted to hospital due to a “virus”, which I found highly confusing at the time as I had only spoken to him a day earlier and he sounded fine. Turned out, he had tried to (thankfully unsuccessfully) take his own life, and his immediate family had run with the “virus” story.

    I’m not saying that this is what’s happened here, but I wouldn’t rule it out.

    • Yeah sudden illness seems kinda odd. He streamed only a couple days earlier and seemed OK. Who knows, it’s just sad as hell.

    • I believe this is actually a case of a sudden illness rather than suicide, he missed home story cup due to being in the emergency room and a few weeks ago he staph infection, however he seems pretty healthly on his stream 2-3 days ago
