TSM Fortnite pro and streamer Ali ‘Myth‘ Kabbani re-enacted one of the most iconic rage moments in Twitch history from Tyler1, as he reacted to the v8.30 Fortnite update from Epic Games.

Why is Myth angry about the Fortnite v8.30 update?

Like many other Fortnite pros and streamers, Myth has been vocal about some of the changes that Epic have made for Season 8.

Starting with v8.20 update, the ‘siphon’ feature was removed – which granted shield and health on eliminations – much to the dismay of pretty much everyone, and little was done to make up for this change in v8.30, despite the deafening calls to ‘revert’ previous updates.

Myth, in addition to being a streamer, also plays Fortnite competitively, attending tournaments where he represents Team SoloMid, and with the $30 million World Cup approaching in the summer, he is concerned with the current state of the game.

To make his feelings clear, Myth took inspiration from possibly the best in the business at raging at developers: League of Legends streamer Tyler ‘Tyler1’ Stienkamp.

One of his most famous ‘rage’ moments was his incensed reaction to Riot Games to buffing an already overpowered item, and Myth repurposed his passionate speech to address Epic Games Season 8 problems.

Myth even made sure to include Tyler1’s mannerisms, throwing the headset down in anger at the same point, and announcing the abrupt end to his stream.

Fortnite updates sending pro players into meltdown

The list of issues currently effecting Fortnite seems to only get longer with each passing update, rather than shorter, as new bugs, unpopular changes and additions to weapon, vehicle or item pool are disliked.

Epic GamesThe Baller is causing problems, particularly in competitive Fortnite.

The ‘Baller’ vehicle is the latest vehicle to receive backlash, only a matter of weeks after players were rejoicing that the X4 Stormwing planes had been removed. In the v8.30 update, the ‘nerf’ which is planned for The Baller was delayed, meaning it will be available in its current state for the start of the World Cup qualifiers.

It’s no secret that Fortnite is not exactly tailored for the competitive community, but with a ridiculous $30 million on the line, the pro players were understandably hopeful that this time around, Epic Games would be more attentive to their wants.

World of Warcraft Shadowlands finally arrived on November 23 and while one Twitch streamer drove home far too fast to load it up with friends, the Police officer who stopped them completely understood. 

As many members of the community will know, the game’s latest expansion will bring together loads of new and returning players for an all-new story. There’s Covenants to mess around with, new quests to try out, and many will have been rushing home to play it after work.

Though, speeding is against the highway code and by driving too fast you are putting others in danger – which meant one streamer was unfortunately told to pull over by the Cops.

Usually, this would lead to a speeding ticket, but after explaining their reason for going too fast – to get home and throw Shadowlands on – the officer came in clutch and decided to turn a blind eye in what was quite a remarkable story.

Shadowlands is finally here and some are getting a bit to exicted.

Shadowlands saves Twitch streamer a speeding ticket

On release day, streamer bbnogames was already playing Shadowlands when his friend called, who presumably also streams with him.

They said: “Bro, hahaha. The Cop was like ‘yo, you know how fast you were going?’ I’m like dude I’m so sorry, this game is dropping soon, all my friends are waiting for me.

“He’s like ‘Shadowlands?’ And I’m like yeah, and he’s like OK go!”

 

After that, he said he was just five minutes away and eventually joined the team playing online. After that remarkable exchange with the Police officer, things went without a hitch, when really he could have been left with a hefty ticket to pay for his troubles.

Instead, they were able to link up together later in the night and jump into World of Warcraft’s latest expansion. Maybe next time, he won’t be so lucky.
