Fortnite pro TSM Myth humiliated after trying CS:GO: “Close your eyes!”

Professional Fortnite Battle Royale player Ali “Myth” Kabbani was hilariously embarrassed by an opposition player, as he tried out Counter-Strike: Global Offensive for the first time on stream.

Myth is best known as one of the early Fortnite personalities, often credited as an innovator of building with Epic Games’ battle royale. However, on June 22, after his failure to qualify for July’s Fortnite World Cup, Myth gave first-person shooter CS:GO a shot.

It was clearly one of his first times playing the legendary shooter, as he hilariously struggled. Myth’s shortcomings were enjoyed by his watching audience, who are unaccustomed to seeing the Fortnite star out of his depth when it comes to gaming.

Instagram: MythMyth was catapulted into fame by Fortnite, sitting at over 5 million Twitch followers.

Myth was playing on Mirage, using the Nova pump-action, when he failed to kill an enemy, despite taking multiple shots at them. After whiffing a number of shots, Myth jumps around a corner to challenge the enemy.

The enemy then jumps at Myth, causing the TSM star to miss another close range shot. He is then humiliated by a close range knife kill: “Nooooo!” he laughed. “Noooo! I fucking suck, close your eyes, please!”

Myth’s viewers could hardly believe what they were watching, as many began to rip into the Fortnite star and mock him for his miserably fail. “UR DOGSHIT!” exclaimed one viewer, while another simply referred to him as a “bot”.

While undoubtedly entertaining, it’s fair to assume that Myth won’t be setting the competitive CS:GO scene alight, in the same way he has impacted Fortnite.

Esports platform FACEIT is putting together a host of leagues for collegiate North American teams to vie for a $55,000 pot across League of Legends, Counter-Strike: Global Offensive, and Valorant circuits.

The deadline for college players to sign up will be November 1, after which the TO will move ahead with a two-division system for CSGO & Valorant as well as regional qualifiers for League of Legends.

For the two tactical shooters, FACEIT will have a “Premier league, for top-tier competition, and Contenders league, for more casual competition.”

College players should note that the Premier and Contenders league will have a registration fee of $125 per team and $75 per team, respectively.

FACEIT will give aspiring esports players a chance to compete for cash in Valorant, LoL, and CSGO.

CSGO & Valorant leagues

From the $55,000 pot, CSGO will get a $30,000 prize pool, $5,000 of which will supply the Contenders league winnings. Meanwhile, FACEIT is putting $10,000 up for grabs in Valorant.

Both Premier and Contenders will have a 10-week Swiss format regular season that will lead into a single elimination playoff in Spring 2021.

Matches start on November 5-10 with the regular season’s 10th match scheduled for February 18-23, so student teams will have months to plan, prepare, and play out the full season.

The playoffs are planned to take place in March through April in the new year, with the Championship following after.

Riot Games
FACEIT will hold collegiate varsity events for Valorant and CSGO.

League of Legends

FACEIT will produce a three-phase LoL circuit that will eventually decide which team claims the biggest take of the $15,000 prize pool.

State-wide qualifiers, consisting of 16 teams each, are going to take place in the US and Canada. These will decide which teams make it into the Regional Stage. The top four teams that make it out of the Regionals will go on to the Finals for the biggest share of the $15,000 pot.

Every state qualifying tournament will require a $100 registration fee, 50% of which goes to the prize pool. FACEIT gave this example: “if the California tournament has 10 teams, there will be a $500 prize for that.”
