William Strife, also known as Will, is a video producer for the Yogscast. He manages the YouTube Channel Linkthe1st, where he does Let's Plays and informative videos. On 14th December 2013, coinciding with his new series The Minecraft Guide, Ridgedog announced via his Tumblr page that Will had joined the Yogscast. He has now been added to the Yogscast Family on the main channel's 'About' section.

Will creates gaming videos with a very high-quality editing style, as well as running a blog called b10g. He also does a series called "A Slice with Strife", where he does a single video on a game.


Will made one single video guide years ago, then the community demanded more. Shortly after YouTube swallowed him whole.
