The Overwatch community today was stunned to news that one of the OGs of the scene and former EnVyUs Captain, Dennis “INTERNETHULK” Hawelka has passed away. Announced via Team Liquid’s official Twitter page, little information is known about his passing except for the fact that he was bedridden just prior to BlizzCon.

German Hawelka was best known to captain EnVyUs in being the first ever western Overwatch team to win a title on Korean soil at OGN APEX Season 1. He was part of the legendary lineup that went on to win MLG Vegas 2016 before moving on to coaching Team Rogue for APEX Season 3, switfly followed by his role as coach for Team Liquid, leading them to a second-place finish in Overwatch Contenders Season Zero for North America.

A legend gone too soon, the Overwatch community has lost one of its giants today. Rest in peace, Dennis.

Heroes never die.
