Ali Kabbani, popularly known as Myth, has left TSM FTX after being part of the organization as a streamer for more than three years. The content creator has over 7.4 million followers on Twitch and over 4.5 million subscribers on his YouTube, making him one of the most prominent internet personalities.
Kabbani started streaming Paragon back in 2016. However, like many other streamers, he switched to Fortnite when the game began to garner an absurd player base. By the start of 2018, Myth had already become one of the biggest streamers and later joined TSM in the same year.
Myth has uploaded a 9-minute video on Youtube explaining his departure from TSM. According to Kabbani, he was not being efficiently utilized by TSM, and he has decided to take a different direction. He also iterated that he doesn’t share the same relationship with the organization as before, which many speculate is due to the departure of former president Leena Xu and professional LoL player Søren “Bjergsen” Bjerg. Whatever the case may be, Myth clearly indicated in his video that he is grateful to the organization for helping him grow even more. It’s not clear what plan Myth has for the future. He might join another organization or do something out of the box, as indicated in his video. Regardless, he is still streaming regularly on Twitch as before.
Myth is not the only personality to leave TSM in recent months. As mentioned before, Leena Xu and Bjergsen have already parted ways with the organization. Additionally, content creators Daequan and Hamlinz left TSM months ago. Former TSM player Yiliang “Doublelift” Peng also accused owner Andy Dinh of being extremely result-oriented and harsh to players, which sparked a lot of controversies. That said, Andy denied the allegations, and nothing significant came out of it.
