Myth has become known as one of the most entertaining streamers on Twitch since he blew up as one of Team SoloMid’s first professional Fortnite players, but he’s revealed that he used to have trouble with bullies in school – and how he dealt with them.

Ali ‘Myth’ Kabbani was once considered one of the best Fortnite players in the world, revolutionizing the way players approached building in the game whilst remaining a beacon of pure entertainment to his viewers.

Although he might not be atop the competitive Fortnite totem pole anymore, Myth is still a hugely popular streamer and continues to grind the battle royale title that made him so popular. But he might not have always been that popular.

TSM/YouTubeMyth has nearly 5.5 million followers on Twitch

In a live stream on October 17, Myth was discussing bullying with his viewers when he said that he faced some bullies in middle school, but had come up with a unique way of dealing with them when they targeted him.

“I just went along with what the bullies wanted,” he said. “I didn’t do it, but I would say that I would do it. They always said ‘suck my…’, and I’d be like ‘Let’s go! Your boys want in aswell? I’m down!’”

Myth went on to explain that it works, because “most of these alpha bullies, they don’t expect that, so they kind of get weirded out. So you completely flip the dynamic of the power move.”

The streamer continued joking with his chat about it but clarified that it was something he did and, after it worked, he went on to get on well with the bullies once they had all grown up a bit in high school.

While it’s worth noting that this may have been Myth’s way of handling things, it’s not for everyone. Myth is definitely just a unique character in himself.

Shroud stunned after logging into his old childhood RuneScape account

Twitch icon Michael ‘shroud’ Grzesiek was shocked after logging into his childhood RuneScape account and discovering that the game was not at all as he remembered it.

The former CSGO pro was taken back upon finding a way to log into his account that he created at the young age of nine or 10, and just how little he had actually accomplished in-game.

After the Canadian pulled up his inventory for the old account, his eyes wandered from side-to-side and top to bottom before he let out a disgusted groan.

“That’s it?!” he cried, clearly unhappy with his younger self. “That’s all I’m worth? That’s all I managed to achieve at the age of 10?”

Looking at shroud’s inventory, there’s nothing noteworthy that stands out with most of the available slots not even taken up by items.

“That’s it?” he groaned again before eventually turning to the denial phase of his cycle.

Not before long, shroud wondered why he had so little in his inventory. “I don’t believe this is all I have,” he continued. “There is no way this is all I managed to accumulate when I played that long ago.”

Eventually, the stunned Grzesiek pulled up his quests to see if he had completed anything cool and much to his chagrin, he didn’t even finish Monkey Madness.

This all said, as it turned out, shroud didn’t really play that much on the account, having a mere 42 days listed in his profile info.

“I was quite literally 10 years old!” he cried after his viewers called him a ‘casual.’ “16 plus years ago is when this thing was made!” he added, noting that the account was older than some of his fans.

“I was nine or 1o years old,” he continued. “Give me a break, okay?!”

With all of his disappointment, it just goes to show that sometimes we remember games, such as RuneScape, more fondly than they actually deserve to be or think we accomplished way more than we did.

In any case, shroud still has way more games to play as his casual content pursuit continues.
