Phillip ‘Watson’, born March 1, 1988, in the Netherlands, better known online as Ph1LzA, is a YouTuber and Twitch streamer known for playing a single continuous “Minecraft’’ game in the Hardcore mode for five years. Ph1LzA is well known for his five-year Hardcore World in the game “Minecraft” which ended in April 2019 and was featured in many media, launching Watson to fame. His current Hardcore Worlds are known for the massive building projects that he performs. His role in Dream SMP also attracted more attention from other “Minecraft” game content creators such as TommyInnit and Dream.

These days, Watson streams his gameplay every Monday, Wednesday, and Friday on Twitch and releases highlights from his streams on his YouTube channel. Watson’s streams typically feature a few other members of Sleepy Bois Inc. He also streams clips on his famous clip channel, Ph1LzA CLIPS, and appears in many videos on TommyInnit’s channel.

In the first season of “Minecraft”’s Hardcore Worlds, his character didn’t die. However, his hard drive burned and Ph1LzA considered it like death. On October 23, 2019, he said on one of his Twitch streams that he had fixed his old hard drive and revisited the World of the first season of his hardcore series to take everyone on a nostalgic trip. He also participated in the MC Championship, a “Minecraft” tournament for YouTubers and Streamers held by Noxcrew. Here, 10 teams of four players each compete in a series of eight mini-games decided by the participants.
