Team Fortress 2 Player Fakes Death, Resurfaces On YouTube (VIDEO)
Team Fortress 2 fans and players alike might remember when content creator Sketchek announced that he had contracted a “terminal illness” in 2015, after which all traces of him essentially disappeared. It was implied that the popular player had passed away, with Valve even adding an in-game item to honor him. However, a recent video to appear on Sketchek’s YouTube channel has revealed that all of this was a “sick joke.”
In the video, Sketchek expresses that he needed to get something off of his chest and apologize for saying that he was ill when he really wasn’t. According to him, he had intended to convince those who care about him that he would die because he loves “the feeling of taking someone for a ride.” You can check out the full apology video below:
He goes on to mention that during his time away, he came to the realization that video games were the cause of his life being ruined. Sketchek also says that this is an “oversimplification,” and that he “won’t bore you with the whole story.”
“I don’t want to lie anymore,” he continued, which led him to reach out to others in the Team Fortress 2 community to personally apologize for everything. The apology video is still new, and while most seem to be supportive and willing to look past the “joke” of faking his own death, it will certainly be interesting to see how this all plays out moving forward.
