TSM Myth mocks Fortnite’s new ‘Moisty Palms’ in hilarious cast

v10.30 update saw the return of two legendary points-of-interest in Greasy Grove and Moisty Mire, which has merged with Paradise Palms to create Moisty Palms, a city overgrown by swamp trees.

The new location has appeared inside a Rift Zone, with the strange side effect that once a player crouches in the location they turn into a prop of a random item that can be found around the island, something that the Team SoloMid player clearly isn’t a fan of.

Epic GamesMoisty Palms was created in the v10.30 update.

After heading to the location during a match, the 20-year-old crouched down, turning into a trash can, and then decided to channel Dr Disrespect by casting over his own gameplay with hilarious results, and some sly digs at Epic Games.

“Ladies and gentlemen, welcome to the FCS championship finals,” the Twitch streamer boomed in his casting voice. “Here we have Myth, late game, and he is a literal trash can! The irony is ridiculous, here he is hiding in a trash can with players zooming all around him, this is what Fortnite is all about!”

“As you can see, Cloakzy is literally a port-a-potty, and they’re standing right next to each other without knowing. Neither of them will move or shoot, because if they do, it will take them out of their hidden position!”

Throughout Season 10, Epic Games have reintroduced classic locations, but put strange twists on them as part of their returns, like removing the ability to build from Tilted Town, or having tacos rain from the sky that make you dance at Greasy Grove.

The fact that players can now hide in Moisty Palms by disguising themselves as objects clearly isn’t something that Myth is a fan of, showing how he feels late games will play with the change, especially in competitive matches.

Players also cannot crouch in Moisty Palms anymore, meaning moving around the location has become more difficult, especially if you’re trying to sneak around or position yourself in smaller spots. Whether Epic Games will address these problems remains to be seen.

Fortnite World Cup champion David ‘aqua’ Wang has been banned by Epic Games, following controversy over alleged stream sniping against FNCS opponents.

Aqua’s trio (with Rezon and Noahreyli) have been participating in FNCS Europe and, following the Week 3 semis, were accused of stream-sniping another popular trio: Benjy ‘Benjyfishy’ Fish, Martin ‘MrSavage’ Andersen, and Kevin ‘LeTsHe’ Fedjuschkin.

Although fans initially deemed aqua’s behavior suspicious, things quickly escalated. With Benjyfishy’s team unable to qualify for the Week 3 finals and the discovery that aqua was watching MrSavage’s stream during the competition, the controversy has spiraled.

Aqua banned by Epic Games

On October 25, aqua confirmed that his account had been banned from competitive, with Epic Games simply providing the reason as “other.”

Following condemnations of the World Cup winner’s team, rumors began circulating that aqua, Rezon, and Noahreyli had been banned by participating past the first match of the Finals. 

It was never officially legitimized and has since been made even more unclear by responses from some of the involved parties.

After the rumor mill buzzed with the reports that aqua’s team was banned from competing, he took to Twitter and gave a concise clarification denying those allegations: “We are not banned, we just don’t wanna play. It’s boring without early fighting Benjy.”

Given the difficulty inherent to confirming someone was in fact stream-sniping and didn’t coincidentally run into a fellow streamer, many believe it is unlikely that the World Cup winner has actually been exiled from the competition.

Additionally, some have noted that bans typically result in removal from the leaderboard, something that aqua’s team has not been hit with.

As for how the players are handling it, aqua and Benjyfishy simply joked about the incident.


At 17 years old, aqua represented his home country of Austria to the fullest by winning the 2019 Fortnite World Cup’s Duos event with Norway’s Emil ‘Nyhrox’ Bergquist. With a smooth $1.5 million earned from the World Cup, he’s since signed with Cooler Esport and continued to win competitions across Europe.

We will continue to update this article with more details as they become available.
