Professional Fortnite player Bogdan died sometime in the night between Oct. 28 and 29, according to a TwitLonger published Sunday by his teammate,
In the TwitLonger, RazZzero0o, who is a member of G2 Esports' Fortnite team and partnered with Bogdan for the TwitchCon Fall Skirmish, explained the emotional whirlwind that led up to Bogdan's death.
Both players were under extreme stress to succeed at the event, hoping above all else to qualify for the finals. They finally achieved that goal Oct. 28, and were already planning how they would spend the rest of their time in the U.S. before they went to bed that night.
When RazZzero0o woke up the next morning, he found Bogdan dead in the bed they had shared that night.
Other players and fans have since created a petition asking Epic Games to add Bogdan's catch phrase, "Back to the lobby," as a Fortnite emote.
