Once considered one of the very best players in the world, the 20-year-old has struggled in the competitive scene in recent months, with the new meta seemingly favoring younger players with insane building mechanics.
After failing to qualify for the Fortnite World Cup, it seems Myth will put competitive Fortnite on the sidelines, following in the footsteps of TSM members Darryle ‘Hamlinz’ Hamlin and Daequan ‘Daequan’ Loco.
Nevertheless, Myth confirmed on Twitter that he would be entering the recently announced trios tournament alongside two star names who have never been seen before in the competitive scene.

Greekgodx hasn’t uploaded Fortnite content for over a year on his YouTube channel, but has played both Apex Legends and CS:GO in recent months. Myth will hope his aiming abilities will translate to the popular battle royale title.
xQc competed at the highest level in Overwatch, but he struggled to get to grips with the mechanics in Fortnite. The Canadian even called in the help of Turner ‘Tfue’ Tenney for a few streams but even that led to some hilarious rage induced moments.
Epic Games are yet to announce the prize pool for the tournament which takes place on July 13-14 but pro players have already started to piece together their rosters.
EU World Cup qualifiers Benjy ‘Benjyfishy’ Fish, Kyle ‘Mongraal’ Jackson, and Martin ‘MrSavageM’ Andersen are considered one of the top teams currently formed, while Tfue and teammate Dennis ‘Cloak’ Lepore will partner with Team Liquid’s Thomas ‘72hrs’ Mulligan.
Given the strength of competition, it will be interesting to see how Myth’s newly formed stream team can perform.
