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.[3] BTC announced on 12 November 2015 via Twitter that he would be leaving Mindcrack.[4]


BTC has not shared many details about his personal life. He has previously stated he would like to be more open,[5] but did not answer questions due to his previous job[6] and how he joined Mindcrack.[7]

BTC previously lived in Massachusetts before moving to Texas in April 2014.[8] He used to serve in the US Army, he was deployed to Iraq and wielded an M249 light machine gun during his time there.[9] 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.[10]


BlameTC previously accepted fan mail while living in Massachusetts,[11] but closed the PO Box when he moved. After moving, BTC once again opened a PO Box and continues to accept fan mail.[12] One fan, named Derek, has taken the fan mail leaderboard for most parcels sent then everyone else combined.

PO Box 97
Spring, TX 77383

Let's Play[edit]

The YouTube avatar of BlameTheController

BTC found Let's Playing through Guude at PlayOnCon 2012. He says survival Let's Plays were foreign to him and only knew of custom map play-throughs.[13]

In June 2014, BTC deleted over 1000 of his older videos,[14] stating he would like to increase the quality of his YouTube channel to appeal to new viewers.[15]

Having met Guude at PlayOnCon 2012, BTC was invited to join the server in October 2012 to work on Guude's secret project.[3] Prior to joining the server, 16 Mindcrackers played BTC's Minotaur map, along with BTC. He was introduced to the Mindcrack Server in a Team Nancy Drew scavenger hunt.[16] Due to Pause uploading a video early, BlameTC joining the server was leaked before the official announcement.[17][18]
