Fortnite: Battle Royale has helped contribute to the growth and success of numerous YouTuber and Twitch streamers who use the game as a primary source of their content.

One such content creator is Ali ‘Myth’ Kabbani, who is a streamer for Team SoloMid as well as the captain of the org’s Fortnite team.

Myth, who joined TSM in early 2018, has enjoyed an explosion of success that has gone hand in hand with the growth of Fortnite.

Today, he is one of the best and most recognizable players in the game, and his streaming career on Twitch continues to skyrocket.

On May 17th, Myth sat down to answer some of the questions sent to him as part of the ‘Ask TSM Myth’ Q&A video.

One of the questions he addressed was regarding the origins of his online gamer name.

Q: Where’s your name from?

A: When I used to play a lot of Call of Duty, I got into this clan called ‘Leprechauns.’ […] I wanted a cool name. You had ‘Leprechauns Chrono, Leprechauns Cillo, Leprechauns Boss, Leprechauns Rifle,’ and I was like, damn I need a good name. So I decided to go with ‘Leprechauns Myth.’ So that’s how that kind of started. […] Myth has kind of been a name that I’ve stuck with that I really, really like and have some thought behind it now as well. Glad that I picked it, nice name.

Switching gears to a Fortnite-related topic, Myth then answered a question about potential new weapons in the game.

Q: If you could add a weapon to Fortnite, what would it be?

A: I don’t really feel like we need anything. The weapon that I really wanted – the hunting rifle – that was the weapon that I wanted in Fortnite. […] I don’t have a weapon that I really want but let’s go with a new assault rifle.

The last question he addressed was one that seemingly everyone wants to know the answer to.

Q: Do you think you could defeat Ninja in a build battle?

A: Oh the question that everyone wants to know the answer to, could i defeat Ninja in a build battle. I mean could I? Yes. Do I think I can? Yes. […] I’m not going to sit here and lie to you. You can’t be humble with that type of question, like especially knowing my ability in game, I’m not going to be like ‘no I couldn’t take on Ninja.’ I’m going to be 100% honest with you, yeah I can take on Ninja in a build battle.”

Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez broke records with her debut Twitch stream as she laughed and bumbled her way through Among Us and the internet couldn’t get enough. Now, she’s all set to do it once again with some massive names joining up for the big return.

It wasn’t the biggest individual stream Twitch has ever seen ⁠— that honor remains with Ninja and Drake ⁠— but Ocasio-Cortez, fondly nicknamed AOC, came awfully close when she went live on Oct. 28 for more than 439k eager viewers.

The huge stream, backed by AOC’s desire to “sell the vote” to gamers, scribed the US representative into Twitch’s history books. It also left the internet hungry for more ⁠— AOC’s bubbly personality and funny wit had endeared her to millions.

For weeks eager viewers were left pondering when she’d make her return. Now, we finally have a solid date locked in and even know some of the names she’ll be streaming with. Here’s everything you need to know about AOC’s upcoming return to Twitch.

The internet at large has been baying for AOC to hit that “go live” button again sooner rather than later. Now her electoral race is won and her sights can shift back over to Twitch.

Despite some earlier teases, it’s been just over a month since the first historic broadcast, but now we have a date for the next one. AOC will be going live on Twitch on Friday, November 27 at 4 PM PT | 7PM EST.

Last time, Ocasio-Cortez streamed mid-week, on a Tuesday and the spectacle ran for just a few hours. Expect a similar duration this time around given the late evening start time.

What will AOC play? League, Among Us, Fall Guys

AOC hasn’t yet branched out to anything other than some Among Us gameplay. It’s a casual experience that anyone can jump into, so it removes any busywork from her broadcasts.

Last time she paired up with fellow US rep Ilhan Omar, Pokimane, and more on InnerSloth’s smash-hit. It appears that she’ll be doing much the same this time around, but with a few fresh faces.

Canadian Member of Parliament Jagmeet Singh will be getting into the mix, as will popular Twitch streamers Hasan and Northernlion.

However, the New York politician could also try her hand at League of Legends on-stream down the line. Pokimane said she would “be here anytime [AOC] needed,” to which Ocasio-Cortez suggested LoL.

“League duo bot?! Except I haven’t played in months, I’m gonna be real bad,” AOC joked on Twitter in reply to Pokimane. “Maybe Among Us again, for a bit.”

A League of Legends stream certainly makes sense; Pokimane first made her name on LoL, and AOC is a self-confessed League lover, though she says she’s not played it “a whole lot.”

She must have played a bit at least, though, because on Nov. 14 ⁠— a month after revealing she was Bronze V ⁠— she shared on Instagram she had been promoted to Silver IV, one whole ranked tier higher. That’s some serious grinding!

The 31-year-old mainly plays Sona, Janna, Lux, and Morgana, and is “working on Lulu” to add to her champ pool; Pokimane will have to play ADC if they duo queue. Perhaps with her second stream now locked in, a special LoL broadcast could be right around the corner as well.

AOC's second Twitch stream could be another record-breaking broadcast.
