Myth explains why Fortnite has become “draining” in hilarious rant

Ali ‘Myth’ Kabbani is one of Fortnite’s biggest stars, but the streamer has found himself demoralized by the recent Season 2 changes, telling Matthew ‘Mizkif’ Rinaudo how “draining” the battle royale is to play in its current state.

Myth shot to fame off the back of Fortnite’s unrivalled growth through 2017 and 2018. The little sandbox survival game was shot into the public conscience after releasing a battle royale version, and took over YouTube, Twitch, and other streaming services almost overnight.

The TSM streamer was at the forefront of that growth, building his way to stardom with his incredible Fortnite skills just as the game was starting to take off.

However, he’s recently announced that he’s taking a break from the game he once loved after almost two years playing non-stop. The game has simply burned him out, and he feels the effects both on, and off-stream.

So when the topic came up on Mizkif’s “Who Is Podcast,” Myth had plenty to say about the “grey area” that was rising to stardom off the back of a singular game, and seeing that same game crumble.

“So, at the start, when you start playing this game every single day, it feels very good,” he said. “It’s fun, especially when you’re starting to integrate yourself into the community and you see all the growth that’s happening because of it.

“Then there’s the negatives, which is when you hit a four-month dry patch of the game not f**king updating at all, or putting in zero content and not communicating at all. It becomes super draining and super demotivating to keep going on and playing that game every single day.”


Chapter 2 was meant to rectify those problems ⁠— at least, that’s what the community was hoping for. While it was the most hyped gaming event of 2019, for Myth, Chapter 2’s entry into Fortnite fell flat.

“After that four month period of no content, they drop [Chapter] 2, and then what happens in [Chapter] 2? There’s no new content,” he continued.

“They take four items, recycle them, and then guess what, they just do stat changes ⁠— they just statistically change the weapons, make them mythic, and then guess what, it’s the same sh*t!

Among all the chaos of his rant though, he did admit that while he disagrees with the creative direction the game is taking right now, he’s always loved Fortnite. While he might be a bit burned out for now, he sees himself returning when the time is right.

“I actually do enjoy Fortnite. I don’t like their approach with recycled content but yeah,” he trailed off.

“I enjoyed late season five, early season six. Every single week, there was an opportunity to get a clip on the front page of [/r/FortniteBR]. Straight up.

“They would introduce something new into the game and it would be so impactful and everyone wanted to see what people were doing with it, that you had the opportunity to pop off of a few items every single week and blow up off of it.”

He has been playing it casually on stream, even after saying he was taking a break, but he’s taking things easier, and branching out.

He’s trying out Apex Legends and CS:GO, and while it’s helping fill the void, the streamer looks like he’s itching to jump back into his one true love.


Epic Games tease more “exclusive” content coming for Fortnite Crew members

According to a brand-new leaked survey, Epic Games have been asking players what they might want to see added as a feature to the Fortnite Crew subscription service, hinting that they’re open to changing up what’s included in the future.

If you took a look at the Fortnite Crew subscription service and thought that it didn’t include enough or didn’t include much that you’d be interested in, Epic Games may be heeding those concerns.

According to Fortnite leaker ‘iFireMonkey,’ a brand-new survey sent out to Fortnite players might indicate that the developer might be open to changing up what a Fortnite Crew subscription comes with. Specifically, the survey asks players to rank what benefits would be most or least important to be added to the service.

Currently, the Fortnite Crew service includes an exclusive skin, some V-Bucks and a free battle pass.

The question itself features a wide range of choices. Some are simply new ways to purchase Fortnite Crew subscriptions, like the ability to buy the service in retail stores and multi-month options.

There are also more gameplay-centric choices, including everything from custom matchmaking options to cosmetics that show off how long you’ve had a subscription. Beyond that, there’s even a choice for a monthly physical mailer with additional rewards outside of what’s given digitally.

Despite this development, it remains to be seen if the company will actually implement any changes. While this survey might indicate that the company is, at the very least, open to adding features to the service, it’s important to remember that it’s not a guarantee that they will.

Currently, the service includes a free battle pass, an exclusive Crew pack, 1000 V-Bucks and an exclusive Member’s Only emote (at least for a limited time), so the implementation of any one of the features listed in the leaked survey would be a welcome addition, especially after its rocky start.

For any updates regarding new features in the Fortnite Crew service and Fortnite in general, keep it locked to Dexerto.
