Monty Oum passes away


#1

I don’t know how many of you know of the company Rooster Teeth, responsible for shows like RWBY and Red vs Blue. Well, it is with a heavy heart that I must say, that their lead animator, Monty Oum, passed away on Monday at the VERY young age of 33. I know this has nothing to do with Evolve, but seeing as I know some of you know what RWBY is ((based on the thread about the Valentines Day Healing Grenades)) I figured I’d post this.

R.I.P Monty Oum. Red vs Blue, and RWBY will never be the same.

Weak. So young. :pensive:

In case anyone is wondering how it happened:

“…10 Days ago, Monty suffered a severe allergic reaction during a simple medical procedure that left him in a coma…”


#4

Yeah, I was gonna put that info, but I wasn’t sure of what kind of allergy or anything, so I just left it out. It’s really sad that something like allergies can end the life of someone so talented.

Why do all the good ones die young? Rest in peace.


#6

Wait, really? Damn. He was a great guy.

R.I.P Monty.


#7

I loved his Dead Fantasy Fighting videos. :frowning:


#8

Such a shame. The world is full of injustice. R.I.P
His drive and passion is something I hope you all take from this.
