BlameTC, also known as Blame the Controller, or simply BTC, is an American Let's Play commentator and a former member of Mindcrack. He was invited to join the Mindcrack Server by Guude in October 2012, to work on Guude's secret project. BTC announced on 12 November 2015 via Twitter that he would be leaving Mindcrack.
BTC has not shared many details about his personal life. He has previously stated he would like to be more open, but did not answer questions due to his previous job and how he joined Mindcrack.
BTC previously lived in Massachusetts before moving to Texas in April 2014. He used to serve in the US Army, he was deployed to Iraq and wielded an M249 light machine gun during his time there. BTC originally enrolled in college with a business major but dropped out 5 credits short because he neither wanted nor needed the degree to progress in his field in public relations.
BlameTC previously accepted fan mail while living in Massachusetts, but closed the PO Box when he moved. After moving, BTC once again opened a PO Box and continues to accept fan mail. One fan, named Derek, has taken the fan mail leaderboard for most parcels sent then everyone else combined.
