Popular streamer and professional Fortnite player for Team SoloMid Ali "Myth" Kabbani set out with one very specific challenge in mind at the Fortnite Pro-Am tournament - but it didn't quite work out.
The Fortnite Pro-Am celebrity tournament saw 50 'influencers' and 50 celebrities compete in duo's for a massive $3 million charity prize pool, taking place at E3 2018.
The event was a huge success, providing a taster of what the future may hold for competitive Fortnite, as well as showcasing some of the top talents currently.
The eventual winners, Tyler "Ninja" Blevins with his partner DJ/producer Marshmello played brilliantly in the final match, with Ninja cementing himself as not only the most popular Fortnite streamer but also one of the best players.
Myth himself is also considered on of the best, and would have hoped to show off his finest skills on the big stage - but it didn't quite work out for him, as he was eliminated in the most unfortunate circumstances.
After taking a lot of damage from a Ninja thrown C4 hit him, and with such little health remaining, he fell to his death - the one thing he didn't want to happen.
"The one thing that I don't want to do is die to fall damage, I have a record for doing that so..."
Myth had even tweeted before the tournament started saying how much he desperately wanted to avoid dying to fall damage. Some might say he jinxed himself.
Bruh, I'm just tryna not die to fall damage tbh.— Myth @ #FortniteE3 (@TSM_Myth) June 12, 2018

But as well all know, despite his best efforts, the curse of fall damage was hanging over Myth once again, at this point becoming a bit of a meme.
He also took to Twitter following the tournament to explain exactly how it happened, as the observer on the stream just cut away from Myth's POV shortly before he went down.
It happened.— Myth @ #FortniteE3 (@TSM_Myth) June 13, 2018
I know y'all didn't see it but basically what happened was ninja threw c4 and I got gotted.— Myth @ #FortniteE3 (@TSM_Myth) June 13, 2018
All in all I had a lovely time and can't wait for the future of comp play. That announcement was bonkers
As Myth refers to, the announcement of the Fortnite World Cup was perhaps the biggest news to come out of the Pro-Am tournament, and Myth will be looking forward to the qualifiers in order to start his competitive Fortnite journey.
For Myth and all the other Fortnite esports players, this was the big announcement they had been waiting for - he just needs to work on avoiding fall damage and he should have a good shot.
