The debate of controllers versus mouse and keyboard rages on in Fortnite and TSM member Ali ‘Myth’ Kabbani stepped up to defend the controller pros.

In 2020, we’re starting to see more and more controller players dominate in Fortnite and it’s causing quite the stir in the community.


It’s not necessarily the fact that controller players are better and mouse and keyboard ones, it’s the fact that they have aim assist is what causes so many problems.

Fortnite controller players are improving rapidly.

Particularly, those who have one plugged into their PC will get a much stronger aim assist than those just playing on a PS4 or Xbox One.


Of course, there are still many drawbacks to using a controller such as it being more difficult to build and edit due to the lack of buttons, for example.

Myth: Twitch
Myth thinks controller players actually have it tough.

In fact, Myth thinks becoming a top-tier controller pro in Fortnite is harder than being one that uses mouse and keyboard.

“Getting good on controller takes much more time than getting good on KbM,” he tweeted in response to Aydan calling out pros who complain about the aim assist.


When a fan was dumbfounded by this statement from the TSM content creator, he went into more detail, explaining that it takes a while to master the controller, which is why we’re just now seeing them take home victories in tournaments.

“Becoming a top TIER Fortnite player on controller is way more difficult if you haven’t played on controller vs learning keyboard and mouse and becoming a top tier player,” he said. “We are just starting to see a true rise of controller comp players. Not just one-offs. That sh*t took time.”

He does have a point as for a long time, most of the top players were exclusive on mouse and keyboard, but in early February we saw a controller player win the Fortnite Australian Open and claim $100,000.


To his credit, Myth does know a thing or two about playing on controller since he actually spent a whole month seeing what it was like.

Taking your months of practice and throwing it out the window is difficult to do for mouse and keyboard players, which is probably why we haven’t many of them switch, despite so many pros labeling the aim assist as overpowered.


However, those who came up on controllers are just now starting to hit their stride, according to Myth, so perhaps we could see more of them dominate in upcoming tournaments.


Hashinshin claims FBI cleared him of sexual harassment allegations

Popular League of Legends streamer Robert ‘Hashinshin’ Brotz has claimed the FBI investigated him over allegations he was sexually harassing minors, and cleared him of any wrongdoing. He was permanently banned on Twitch over the claims.

Hashinshin was ostracized from the League of Legends community back in July, after claims the 30-year-old Twitch streamer sexually harassed underage girls by abusing his platform of power.


Other popular content creators, like Joedat ‘Voyboy’ Esfahani, stated that “Hashinshin is a manipular, predator, and worst of all [a] pedophile who used his platform to abuse so many underage girls over the years.”

However, the disgraced streamer has claimed he was investigated by the FBI and cleared of all wrongdoing.


“There has been an FBI investigation into me, and I have neither been jailed or charged with a crime. Some of you might not believe that. I have a freedom of information request [to prove my innocence publicly], but that can take up to a year,” Brotz said in a October 7 statement.

Numerous women came forward stories in July of Hashinshin grooming them while they were underage. However, Hashinshin has always maintained his innocence, claiming these stories were false, and that many of those who came forward have since deleted their statements.

He also stated that he was potentially looking into suing some of the alleged victims for defamation, stating they did a “public assessment of [his] character” that distorted what people thought of him.


“I was going to sue Alli for defamation ⁠— and I probably should have ⁠— but Alli is not a victim, and people started getting these really distorted views on what was happening,” he said, referring to one of the victims.

“Things aren’t as they seem, regardless of what they seem. I’m not a rich and powerful figure. They didn’t find that I did anything. I think a lot of this was a public assessment of my character, and a lot of people did this because they didn’t like me.

“I’ve been working on bettering myself over the last two years, and I think I’ve become a better person overall. It hurts a lot…to see all these people denying that.”


Brotz claimed that while he believed his accusers weren’t “all terrible people,” they betrayed his trust. He also said that while he believes they should apologize, he hopes no one in the community attacks them. He just wants to “go back to living a normal life.”

“I thought these were nice people, I thought I could trust them and work with them. That’s why my response to this was all sh*tty because I shouldn’t really have trusted anyone. I don’t think they’re all terrible people, but things really escalated,” he said.


“I don’t want anyone to attack them. I just want to go back to living a normal life. I just want to exist peacefully, and I hope people can start letting me do that. I hope this can change their minds in some way.”

Hashinshin remains permanently banned on Twitch despite his attempts to clear this name. He has also lost his Twitch partnership, and has instead moved to streaming on YouTube.
