Warcraft 3 pro player Alexandr Syomin, aka VeryB1gman, has passed away yesterday morning due to yet unknown reasons; but reports say that the Kazakh pro gamer had been suffering from asthma.
At the age of 20, VeryB1gman was a long-time pro player of Warcraft 3, and one of the remaining stalwarts in the competitive gaming scene of the said game. VeryB1gman played for the Russian-based Post Mortem team, with which he participated in many international WC3 tournaments.
