Fortnite Twitch streamer Ali “Myth” Kabbani is leaving TSM after three years spent creating content for the esports organization.
TSM shared the major update on December 27, wishing Myth “all the best” in his future endeavors. The tweet included a short video message from Myth, who explained why he decided to not re-sign with TSM as he pursues new content avenues going forward.
“There are so many memories I have when it comes to me being a part of TSM. Forming the Fortnite team. Leena hitting me up in my DMs and my heart literally racing and my hands shaking that I’m replying that I’m interested in joining TSM. Me being signed and moving to California and having the Fortnite house,” Myth said. “Being the most dominant content team in Fortnite space. These are all memories I’ll cherish and hold close to my heart forever.”
But TSM just wasn’t feeling the same for Myth in recent months. Former TSM president Leena Xu and League of Legends veteran Soren “Bjergsen” Bjerg had both left TSM. They left few of the staples of TSM Myth had felt close to, and their departures difficult for the Fortnite streamer. He admitted that TSM had “lost the family feel” once Leena and Bjergsen were gone.
Myth also added that he wasn’t being used in as much TSM content anymore. He explained that he wasn’t “being utilized in an efficient manner.” Myth said that he wanted to be part of bigger ideas and more content. He was hoping to put himself in more “uncomfortable situations” that pushed his limits.
“I want a different direction and to figure out what I like doing. I’ve been gaming for 18, 19 years as my singular hobby. I want to take some time to explore different things,” Myth said.
Where is Myth going after TSM?
Myth joined TSM in 2018 and was almost entirely focused on Fortnite, both creating content and competing at a high level. Since then, Myth has explored other games, including Valorant. He became well-known for co-streaming TSM matches during the Valorant Champions Tour.
Myth has continued to grow his brand and channels on YouTube and Twitch, gaining millions of subscribers during his time with TSM. Fans seem sad to see Myth leave the organization but even more curious as to where he is going next.
After scouring the responses to Myth’s tweet, fans have theorized that the Fortnite pro may be heading to either 100 Thieves or NRG. Former TSM Fortnite players Daequan and Hamlinz are currently at NRG, which would make it seem a fitting destination for the content creator. Others are wondering if Myth will end up at OfflineTV.
Myth has yet to announce what his next moves are. Fans are no doubt anxiously waiting to hear what he has planned for 2022.
