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.
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

Geoff was an absolute pillar of StarCraft and dearly loved by many. His passion was inspiring to witness. I'm struggling to wrap my head around this.
Thank you for everything you have given us. My sincere condolences to all your loved ones. https://t.co/NUv40gn3oc
