One of the top streamers on Twitch, Ali “Myth” Kabbani has been handed a major honor from his home state of Michigan, after his rise to popularity through the Fortnite craze.

Myth was quickly identified as one of the best players and most entertaining streamers, known best for his ridiculous building skills in the popular battle royale game.

The months since the games release in late 2017 have seen Myth, like many other streamers, ascend in the ranks of Twitch’s top streamers, as well as growing on YouTube and other social media as well.

To give a sense of just how meteoric the growth of Myth in particular has been, he had less than 30,000 YouTuber subscribers in January of 2018, and now has over 2 million.

Similarly, his Twitch channel has gone from just over 100,000 followers in January, to also over 2 million at the time of writing.

It was his stellar gameplay and popularity on Twitch that saw him recruited by TSM, and now has earned him a very prestigious award from his home city, Dearborn.

Myth has also clarified why exactly he received the award, but didn’t go in to too much detail, simply stating that he was recognized as a ‘stand up’ guy.

Citation awards are typical in academic settings, to recognize excellency and distinction in a certain field.

Certainly, Myth’s ability in Fortnite is worthy of distinction, let alone his role within the community, not just in Michigan of course but the wider internet and streaming community particularly.

You can catch Myth streaming regularly over on his Twitch channel, and hopefully as Fortnite esports develops, will be able to see him compete in major tournaments under the TSM banner.


Jinny banned from Twitch again for reckless driving

Twitch star Jinny has revealed that the streaming platform will be banning her after she drove quite recklessly on a scooter while visiting Germany.

The popular IRL streamer explained to her viewers that her impromptu decision to ride a scooter without very much experience was a bad idea.

“I got banned. Not yet, but I will get banned because of scooter,” she said. “Because I don’t have a driver’s license, I’ve never tried scooter that much. So, I made a lot of mistakes.”

As Jinny further noted, even though she tried to be careful, mistakes were bound to happen. “So, I’m just not going to ride scooter to avoid any mistakes being made.”

In a since-deleted clip, Jinny can be seen riding a scooter while wobbling and appearing to have significant trouble steering.

At one point, the streamer even ran a red light and nearly bumped into other people trying to ride their vehicles.

“It was green! Damn it!” she cursed after crossing the road. “Wasn’t it green?”

How long will Jinny be banned for?

According to the Korean streamer, this ban will last for seven days, because this isn’t the first time Twitch has had to discipline her.

As Dexerto previously reported, Jinny was first banned back in July after playing The Last of Us Part 2 on stream.

During the broadcast, she erroneously referred to the female character, Abby, as a “transgender” which resulted in the platform banning her for a “hateful comment.”

However, Jinny was unbanned a mere eight hours later after making a public apology.

The ban timing is extremely unfortunate as Jinny is in the middle of a trip, so being unable to stream takes some fun out of the experience.

For her part, however, Jinny is taking the ban seriously and accepts that it was her fault. As for when she will be banned, she claimed that it will happen when it’s “morning in NA,” so the ban should be kicking in at some point on October 20.
