Bain was diagnosed with bowel cancer in 2014. In May 2018, he announced that chemotherapy had failed to remove the cancer, and that his liver was failing, hence his retirement from game commentary/criticism. He passed away on May 24th, 2018. In Patch 4.6.1, a commemorative bundle was made for TotalBiscuit with all proceeds going toward his family.
The symbol of Axiom Esports has the chance to spawn at the base of xel'naga towers in honor of him.
