in 2015, focusing on the building block game “Minecraft,” but also posted vlogs and skits on her YouTube channel.

Dukic was one of the best “CS:GO” players in Serbia, Game Rant reported, and had reached the semi-pro level. She had recently returned to streaming on Twitch after a long break, which began at the end of 2020. On her return, she had started working on her “League of Legends” skills to try and get to a competitive level.

Dukic had more than 400,000 Instagram followers and shared photos of her working out at the gym, wearing a Halloween costume, and celebrating her birthday with chocolates and heart-shaped balloons.

“If I showed you my flaws, if I couldn’t be strong, tell me honestly, would you still love me the same?” she wrote in one caption.

There has been an outpouring of messages for Dukic since the news broke of her death. Serbian professional “CS:GO” broadcast analyst and caster Janko Paunovic tweeted that he was “saddened” and sent condolences to Dukic’s family.

“You think it’s just words on a keyboard but there’s another human being on the other side reading all that hate,” he said. “And it affects even those with the thickest of skins let alone young adults.”

He added that “you can never fully know what goes on in another persons life and the issues they’re battling with every single day.”

“We would all benefit from spreading more love and less hate and being more supportive of each other,” he said. “Especially when it comes to social media.”

Esports host and commentator James Banks also tweeted in memory of Dukic.

“This is so sad to read,” he said. “I met and spent time with K1KA through “CS:GO,” only recently talking about her new kitten … you never know what people are going through, talk to someone if you start to feel bad.”

Professional “CS:GO” player Nemanja Kovac tweeted that he had “no words” on hearing the news of Dukic’s death.

“Condolences to the family and rest in peace K1KA,” he said.

What Is An Obituary

In national newspapers an obituary (obit for short) is a news article that reports the recent death of a prominent person. Although it tends to focus on positive aspects of the subject’s life this is not always the case. According to Nigel Farndale, the Obituaries Editor of The Times: “Obits should be life affirming rather than gloomy, but they should also be opinionated, leaving the reader with a strong sense of whether the subject lived a good life or bad; whether they were right or wrong in the handling of their public affairs.”

In local newspapers, an obituary may be published for any local resident upon death. A necrology is a register or list of records of the deaths of people related to a particular organization, group or field, which may only contain the sparsest details, or small obituaries. Historical necrologies can be important sources of information.
