Thousands of World of Warcraft players are gathering in the game today as they mourn the death of Byron ‘Reckful’ Bernstein, one of Twitch’s most famous streamers. Across every server, players in both the Horde and the Alliance are traveling to the Stormwind Cathedral to kneel in silence or exchange memories and reflect Bernstein’s achievements. Though he was banned permanently from World of Warcraft in 2014 for account sharing, Bernstein was arguably one of the MMO’s most famous players and was the highest-ranked PvPer for six consecutive seasons around 2009, as well as the winner of several notable tournaments.

The screenshot above is from the Lightbringer server, where several dozen players have gathered to kneel in the Stormwind Cathedral. Elsewhere, especially on more populated servers, the gatherers number in the hundreds. Even Horde players, who aren’t allowed in Alliance-controlled Stormwind, are making the journey.
