Ali ‘Myth’ Kabbani has been awarded a $5,000 cash prize after a clip of him being knocked out of the first of six rounds at the WSOE 3 event went viral.
The professional Fortnite Battle Royale player was eliminated alongside his partner Karman ‘Kaysid’ Sidhu, after some strange fall damage from a Quadcrasher jump caused the duo some massive problems.
Despite the fact that the pair had been knocked out the first of six rounds of the $100,000 Fortnite LAN event, in such bizarre circumstances, a video of their deaths was the most popular clipped moment and a cash prize was awarded for that achievement.
The clip below shows the entire play, with Myth dropping from the vehicle near a mountain top, where he was shocked to find that he had been knocked by a very short fall.
Soon after, his teammate built a wooden structure around Myth in an attempt to revive him, but an X-4 Stormwing plane came swooping in and crashed into the structure, exposing the pair who were then eliminated by other players.
This is not the first time that Myth has been eliminated from an event due to fall damage, however, and that’s perhaps one of the reasons why his recent death has gained so much traction.
“Epic is trolling,” the popular streamer joked. “I’m going to abuse the living hell out it. So like, if we get Boom Boxes and if i see any team, I’m just going to throw all three of them on them and wish them a happy tournament.”
While Myth might have been expecting to die from one of these new items, little did he know that a fall damage glitch would cost them in the end.
Or, that the viral clip of their deaths would be the reason for a cash win.
