Team SoloMid’s Ali ‘Myth’ Kabbani has opened up about his struggles with performance anxiety after shutting down his popular Twitch stream earlier than expected on November 15.

The Fortnite Battle Royale star had been practicing with other top players in one of the game’s custom pop-up cups but was unable to produce the sort of the performance that he expects from himself.

As the face of TSM Fortnite, Myth has come under a great deal of scrutiny for his performance in competitive settings and it would appear that this is beginning to take its toll on him. had a frustrating night of custom games.

“Sorry for ending the stream,” Myth explained on Twitter. “But I’m currently going through performance anxiety and it’s something that I’m really trying to battle and something that has me really emotional.”

He went on to say that he struggles to remain positive when he makes uncharacteristic mistakes, stating: “It’s so demoralizing when you know how and what to do but you just fumble. I’ll keep pushing.”

Myth has been open about the difficulties that he has faced when it comes to balancing his Twitch stream and his professional Fortnite responsibilities, but this is arguably the most personal insight he’s given to fans about his current mindset.

Myth’s stream grew exponentially along with the rise of Fortnite in late 2017 and early 2018, and he was widely regarded as one of the very best builders in the game for the first half of the 2018.

The TSM star has struggled to show that same level of skill when competing against the world’s best players – an issue that is clearly beginning to get to him.

A number of fans have suggested that he scrims and plays competitive matches off-stream while he concentrates on getting past his current performance anxiety problems.

Popular Fortnite YouTuber Ali-A has shown that the previously leaked Madcap skin looks to be coming soon as a mobile glitch has revealed a strange character ‘haunting’ Weeping Woods. 

Across the different Fortnite seasons and updates, Epic Games have released a vast amount of cosmetics – with fans picking out their favorites and donning them in-game. 

Typically, these skins are leaked ahead of time as leakers are able to decrypt games files that are added to the mix with each new update and patch. Some of these skins never see the light of day, or are held back for quite a while, despite being leaked following a patch. 

One of the skins that falls into this category is the Madcap – a glowing, purple, Mushroom-themed skin. It was leaked quite a while back, and while it hasn’t been available just yet, it looks like it will be pretty soon.

Each new Fortnite update leaks a whole host of skins.

Popular YouTuber Ali-A pointed out that some Fortnite mobile players on Android had spotted the outline of a skin sitting around in Weeping Woods. 

The character that seems to be ‘haunting’ the POI, is stood under a tree with their arms crossed. However, it’s not colorful. Instead, it’s a blacked-out silhouette – almost as if it’s going to be added soon, but is showing up as a visual glitch in-game. 

Ali-A noted that the character is most definitely Madcap because of the shape of the head, and given that he’s hanging around Weeping Woods, there might be a challenge or quest line involved with unlocking the skin.

Even though the YouTuber’s speculation seems pretty spot on, there’s no telling if he’s right just yet because Epic Games hasn’t announced anything. 

It could very well be that, as Fortnitemares unfolds, the skin will finally be available through the item shop and there are also challenges in Weeping Woods to unlock skin styles. Though, we’ll just have to wait and see.
