Fortnite’s Fall Skirmish finals, at this year’s TwitchCon, have featured the best players of the game. However, while everyone’s having a blast during the event, a pro-player and Twitch streamer has passed away. Bogdan Akh was very young so his death has surely shocked his teammate and the people close to him.

According to Dexerto, Swedish pro-gamer Bogdan Akh died, at the very young age of 21, after participating in the above-mentioned “Fortnite” event. His teammate – RazZzero0o – recalled that Bogdan just went to bed after the Fall Skirmish finals adding that the streamer already had plans to explore San Jose, California with him.

However, when he "tried to move his teammate’s arm the following day because it was on his side of the bed," he knew that moment that Bogdan was already gone.

He was super nice and funny

RazZzero0o further explained, on his TwitLonger post, that he "did not tell anyone about Bogdan’s untimely passing out of respect for the streamer’s family and closest friends." He also revealed that they both practiced every single day, for the past two months before the convention, "adding that he enjoyed every moment of those practice sessions because Bogdan was super nice and funny at the same time."

At the tail end of his post, he apologized for being the last person Bogdan spoke to before he passed instead of his family.

RazZzero0o went on stating that even though they’ve only known each other for such a short period of time, the streamer already “secured himself a big place in his heart.”

Prior to his passing, one can clearly tell, from Bogdan’s tweets, that he was very much excited about getting invited to participate in the Fortnite Fall Skirmish. He’s even looking forward to the players that he’ll be competing with at the convention.

A petition and a fundraiser

Meanwhile, a petition was made, by fellow pro-gamers, requesting Epic Games to add a “Back to Lobby” emote to pay respect to Bogdan.

At the time of this writing, the 10,000 goal was within reach. For the uninitiated, the “Fortnite” streamer always used the above-mentioned phrase whenever they eliminated an opponent in the game. The petition went on, stating that it would be such a nice way to honor Bogdan’s memory and his impact in both “Fortnite” and stream scene.

In line with this, Pro Fortnite player Svennoss also tweeted out a Go Fund Me link to help Bogdan’s family for his funeral.

The fundraiser has already accumulated a decent sum of contribution from the community, though it’s still far from the L2,500 goal.
