ESR: Gone But Never Forgotten


(Written October 21st, 2021)

Ladies and gentlemen welcome to what I hope will be the only article of this kind I ever have to write for esportsreporter. I am taking a short break from the Go big or Go Home series of R6 articles to write this one. It would be incredibly poor taste to continue to give you all updates on professional esports and not address the incredibly sad tragedy that has rocked the entirety of the R6 pro scene and dare I say the esports world. If you follow any major esports organization, scene, player, or just have looked up anything about Rainbow Six Siege, you will have heard the incredibly tragic news that Michael “KIXSTAr” Stockley died this past week. If not, then I am sorry you are hearing this news from me. He was 24 years old. He died in a car accident, he was not under the influence, and he was the only person involved in the accident. If you’re looking for more info as to what happened, the details as of the time of writing this article have not been made public and please be respectful of his family’s privacy during this time.

It is impossible to have seen any Pro League broadcast in almost the entirety of Pro League’s existence and not have heard KIXSTAr commentating at least once. KIXSTAr began his career playing with Team Orbit and finishing in 2nd place in the Year 1 Season 2 finals. He then made the switch over to casting and commentating during Season 3 and he has been there ever since. KIXSTAr would go on to win the Esports Color Caster of the year award in 2020 and be nominated again in 2021.

It is very safe to say that KIXSTAr was one of if not the face of professional Rainbow Six Siege. His knowledge of the game was second to none, and he graced everyone who listened in with his insight, experience, and understanding of the game. He died FAR too young, and everyone at Esportsreporter and the R6 community send our condolences and best wishes to his family and friends. The world will surely miss him and is worse off without him it. That is why Michael “KIXSTAr” Stockley will be gone but never forgotten.
