Fighting Games Community comes together for competitor who died during tournament

The fighting games community is rallying to raise money for the family of a longtime competitor who died during a tournament last week.

Terrance Moore, a professional Killer Instinct player known as "PushaTee," collapsed during a livestream from the Oct. 16 Super Arcade tournament in Southern California. He was pronounced dead at a nearby hospital. He was 29.

Tributes for Moore poured forth from the tight-knit fighting games community, including the video above by his close friend, MrGrimmmz. They're now rallying to raise money for Moore's family. He is survived by his wife and two children.

Two fundraisers on, one from SuperArcade and another from r/Kappa, have both gone past their goals and have raised a combined $14,600 so far, with 11 days left in their campaigns.

The purpose is to help Moore's family with their expenses as well as manage funeral costs, which organizers note can run upwards of $10,000.
