TSM Myth’s Tournament Strategy at Fortnite Pro-Am Went Horribly Wrong

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.

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.

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.

Epic Games have rolled out their spooky Fortnitemares update in Fortnite Chapter 2, Season 4 and there’s a load of map changes to talk about. Here, we look through everything that’s changed in patch v14.40. 

The game is always in line for a wild update every Halloween and the same has happened this year. The dark forces of the battle royale world have come back from the shadows, all to celebrate the return of Midas – who disappeared earlier in the season.

Now, with the huge update on October 21 comes a shakeup for the game’s ever-changing map.

So, let’s run through everything you need to know for the next time you jump from the Battle Bus.

Fortnite Halloween update map changes


Fortnite Witchshacks
Epic Games
These Witchshacks have some very useful items inside.

One of the first things players will notice is that a number of Witchshacks have been dotted around the island. These were found by leaker FortTory, soon after the patch rolled out.

You have to feel, just because of the nature of them and the fact brooms can be found inside, that these will soon become hotspots for players dropping in.

Midas return location

Also found by FortTory is this Midas location, which looks to be his return location.

This appears to be the place where Midas will rise once again, with candles lit in a circle and the throne sitting in the background.

Soon enough, we’ll get to see what happens here, but an interesting addition nonetheless.

The Ruins POI: Fortnitemares

Epic Games
Here’s how it looks in-game.

The game’s middle point of interest has been given a spooky makeover, called The Ruins.

Surrounded by ghouls and who knows what, this could be one of the most dangerous places for members of the community moving forward.

Halloween decorations

Fortnite Halloween props
Epic Games
If entering haunted houses is your thing, Fortnite is definitely worth playing this Halloween.

Some players will have seen many of these prior to the update, but much of the settlements in Epic Games’ popular title are now filled with Halloween props on the inside and out.

Here, we can see huge spiders placed on buildings and webs, so get used to seeing that.

We’ll be updating this article with more map changes as we find them…

Fortnitemares trailer

Last, but not least, you can check out the official Fortnitemares trailer – showing off all of the new features.

It was posted to the Fortnite Twitter account on October 21, once the patch rolled out.

So, there you have it! A jam-packed update for players to sink their teeth into this October.

If you want to see more map changes that those stated in this article, you know what to do – jump into the action!
