Ali ‘Myth’ Kabbani was one of the first Fortnite streamers to grow from Epic’s Battle Royale game, but his massive success has proved to be an issue for finding a duo for the Fortnite World Cup in July 2019.
The young Fortnite star continues to boast massive numbers on Twitch and Youtube, as thousands tune in each day to watch Myth’s high-level gameplay.
Myth announced that he was looking to qualify for the duo portion of the $30 million Fortnite World Cup, but he has been having trouble finding a suitable partner.
On May 7, he broke down the difficulties he had been going through due to his success on Twitch.
Myth’s raise to Fortnite fame
The early days of Fortnite were dominated by Myth as hundreds of thousands of viewers regularly tuned in to watch his building, which was one of the main reasons TSM’s Fortnite captain skyrocketed in popularity.
Myth was one of the first players to popularize the building meta of high one by ones.
Thanks to Myth’s stream schedule, he would begin once Ninja was done his session, which helped lead viewers from Ninja to Myth’s channel.
While streaming on May 7, Myth explained to his Twitch chat that his search for a duo player began to be difficult due to people acting differently because of Myth’s online success.
“People genuinely, really, really play differently with me compared to if they were playing with someone who isn’t a big streamer. It’s actually a big issue. They [communicate] differently, they react differently. They won’t ‘alpha up’ in [communication] if they need to.”
It was announced a few days ago that Myth was able to find a duo partner in Misfits Gaming’s Jacob ‘Heads’ Churchfield.
“There was a time in the tournament when I countered one of his calls and he said, “No, we’re doing it, trust [me]. Personally, that’s what I like.”
The next time we will see Myth and Heads compete for a spot in the Fortnite World Cup will be during week 6, April 18 – April 19, of the online opens, which features duo play.
