TSM Myth trolls Fortnite console players and Reddit laps it up

Fortnite’s online community is always on the lookout for interactions from big personalities to share and upvote on Reddit, but little did they know Ali ‘Myth’ Kabbani’s latest comments about console players was actually a hoax.

The Team SoloMid player posted an in-jest message to his Twitter account, which stated that the Twitch streamer had not only completed a course for editing on console, but had a new found respect for all Fortnite players on the platform.

His tweet reached the front page of the Fortnite BR subreddit, attracting over 5,400 upvotes at the time of writing.

Epic GamesMyth seemed to have tricked some Fortnite console players with his joke.

Myth’s tweet was shared with the game’s online community by Reddit user Chef_BoyardeeBr, who wrote: “It’s nice seeing someone large in the Fortnite community show their respect for controller players.”

While many people saw this as a nice gesture from the professional player, comments made during his stream on March 22 reveal that the he was fooling around the whole time to get upvotes.

“Man, I have so much respect for console players,” Myth said. “I’m just saying that so Reddit takes it and I get max upvoted. I don’t really mean it, I don’t really mean it.

“I know that I’ll get front page of Reddit if I say that,” he added, and his prediction turned out to be an accurate one as well. 

There has long been a debate in the Fortnite world about which is the best platform to play the game on, with many pros – clearly – preferring to play alongside other fellow PC players.

Whether you appreciate Myth’s comments or not, there’s no denying that he baited fans perfectly here and his plan came off. It just goes to show how easily streamer, or pro players alike, can trick fans if they really want to.

Tottenham Hotspur player Dele Alli has roasted England international teammate Kieran Trippier over his gaming skills, bluntly calling him “really bad” at Fortnite.

Alli has recently become a global ambassador for Excel, one of the 10 League of Legends teams in the LEC and a powerhouse of UK esports, having made clear his love of gaming in recent years with his streams on Twitch.

Dele sat down to talk about his love of gaming with Excel, discussing FIFA, Fortnite, and some of the other top footballers he’s played with — but had a few less-than-savoury thoughts on his former Spurs teammate’s abilities.

After being asked who’s “not very good at gaming,” Trippier fell immediately into the firing line.

Dele joins a growing list of footballers getting involved in the esports scene in one way or another.

With a laugh at his friend’s misfortune, Dele revealed that the former Spurs man, unfortunately, falls into that category.

“Kieran Trippier was very late to gaming” Dele said, offering his former teammate somewhat of a lifeline. Before cracking up laughing again, the star added: “He jumped on it and he’s got a lot better but, at the start…”

Dele continued: “He joined Fortnite when we had all been playing for a while, and it was the first time he had played with a controller… so if you tell him to press X, he wouldn’t know which was X.”

Not content with letting his name be slandered in the gaming world, Kieran himself quickly responded with some laughing emojis, backing himself up by clarifying that he actually “wasn’t that bad,” though it doesn’t sound great for the full back.

Now, surely, fans will be desperate to see Dele and Kieran go head-to-head with one another to see if the latter is really as bad as he sounds.
