TSM Myth’s new ‘zone war’ idea would bring fast-paced TDM to Fortnite

Ali ‘Myth’ Kabbani has been a part of the Fortnite scene pretty much since its launch and now he is looking for new ways to push the game forward.

Pro TSM Fortnite player Myth was one of the first players to make a name for himself in Fortnite.

While he isn’t the biggest name anymore in the esports side of things for Fortnite, he’s still a popular streamer in his own right.

On March 22 Myth created a mini-thread of tweets about ideas he has for a battle royale, whether it’s Fortnite or something new entirely. 

His idea focused on finding a way to make a battle royale as exciting as they become in the mid-to-late game when the action gets frantic and there is more fight since the players are in such close proximity.

Myth wants to emulate fast-paced action

It seems like the part of Fortnite and other battle royales Myth enjoys the most is the part where all the looting is done and the fighting has begun.

He wants to make a game that would emulate the mid-to-late game where players are all geared up and ready to go for the victory.

In the pro scene, this is easily the most exciting part to watch since that is when all of the action takes place, especially in Fortnite where the players play much slower than usual.

It’s hard to envision a battle royale like that unless players just start with loot because a big part of BRs is that early-game looting that sets you up for the end game.

This is definitely an interesting idea because it’s easy to see how the beginning of a match is the most boring part of a round.

Will Zone War ever be a part of Fortnite?

Myth also thinks a ‘Zone War’ game mode would work quite well in Fortnite and even thinks it’ll be a big part of Fortnite’s future.

This would be a mode that would greatly speed up the pace of game and instead of being a battle royale it’d instead be team deathmatch.

Your structures would disappear quickly and you’d be limited on materials from the get-go. 

This mode would encourage constant action between players as there will be nothing for them to hide behind since there would be no farming or protection.

Fortnite could easily implement something like this but the real question is will they ever do it? It would certainly make for a good LTM.


How to watch Fortnite’s Galactus event: Start time, leaks, location, more

Fortnite’s hotly-anticipated Galactus event, coming soon as the Season 4 finale, is the talk of the town; from when the Marvel character will make his mark, to how you can watch it in-game, here’s everything you need to know.

A bright object in the sky has begun hurtling towards the Fortnite map, and thanks to datamining and logic, it seems only reasonable to suggest that Galactus is on his way to cause destruction.

Similar to the devastation caused by the Season 1 meteor, you would have to think that his intentions are not good. It seems we’re gearing up for a massive battle featuring every Marvel character currently in the game.

The original Fortnite meteor was first spotted a month and a half before it landed – destroying Dusty Depot – and the same type of impact appears to be on the horizon.

Fortnite Galactus event start date and time

Such is the hype surrounding the appearance of Galactus that he’s taken an incredibly long time to appear. However, his arrival is finally set in stone.

The Nexus War finale event is a one-time spectacle set to kick off on Tuesday, December 1 at 4 PM ET | 1 PM PT | 9 PM GMT.

Some leaks of the upcoming event have made their way to the internet which depicts Thor, She-Hulk, Wolverine, and Iron Man offering themselves as soldiers to fight Galactus.

Fighting Galactus to end the Nexus War will be a one-time event. No replays for this historic battle.

The event itself could see the superheroes taking on Galactus in the form of a raid. Or you could possibly have Galactus taking on the whole lobby, or a Thanos-inspired mode akin to Chapter 1.

Galactus is officially listed as being 28ft tall and that in itself could offer some interesting gameplay options. Given that this will close out a season-long Nexus War, there’s a good chance you’ll have a ton of manual input here. So expect to help the heroes in their fight.

First look at Galactus

With the use of one of the game’s sniper rifles, it’s possible for players to look through the scope, at the object in the sky, and spy him. He’s obviously been getting closer and closer over the season, but thanks to new leaks, we’ve got a better look at the figure than ever before.

It turns out there’s actually a standard sized Galactus skin in the game’s files. Perhaps we’ll be able to run around as the Devourer of Worlds after the event. Only time will tell.

Here are some datamined images of Galactus’ model, too.

The main rumor concerning Phase 4 of the MCU is that Galactus will indeed be the archetypal villain of the main films. The Devourer of Worlds quite literally does what he says on the tin, and his power is unmatched.

The Fortnite tie-in will be a great way to introduce casual fans to the presence of one of the universe’s most powerful, cosmic entities.

We’ve also got a look at where Galactus is. It seems he’s positioned right about the ruins POI in-game from this screenshot from Fortnite leaker, Fevers.

Rising Out of the Water

ShiinaBR also tweeted on November 22, 2020 that Galactus has slowly begun to rise out of the water. We’ll make sure to update this article when we have a better look at this.

Lazing Device

On November 4, Fortnite data miner Mang0e tweeted about a mysterious new weapon in the works. Hardly anything is known about what this ‘Lazing Device’ is. However, Mang0e believes it could perhaps be a prototype for the upcoming Cosmos rifle.

Its base stats are that of the Bolt Sniper Rifle, which is the same as the Cosmos ones, too. Mang0e goes on to say in their Twitter thread that this is all speculation, however, but rebuffs his claims by saying that they were right about the Slurp Bazooka in the past.
