On May 17th, Myth sat down to answer some of the questions sent to him as part of the ‘Ask TSM Myth’ Q&A video.

One of the questions he addressed was regarding the origins of his online gamer name.

Q: Where’s your name from?

A: When I used to play a lot of Call of Duty, I got into this clan called ‘Leprechauns.’ […] I wanted a cool name. You had ‘Leprechauns Chrono, Leprechauns Cillo, Leprechauns Boss, Leprechauns Rifle,’ and I was like, damn I need a good name. So I decided to go with ‘Leprechauns Myth.’ So that’s how that kind of started. […] Myth has kind of been a name that I’ve stuck with that I really, really like and have some thought behind it now as well. Glad that I picked it, nice name.

Switching gears to a Fortnite-related topic, Myth then answered a question about potential new weapons in the game.

Q: If you could add a weapon to Fortnite, what would it be?

A: I don’t really feel like we need anything. The weapon that I really wanted – the hunting rifle – that was the weapon that I wanted in Fortnite. […] I don’t have a weapon that I really want but let’s go with a new assault rifle.

The last question he addressed was one that seemingly everyone wants to know the answer to.

Q: Do you think you could defeat Ninja in a build battle?

A: Oh the question that everyone wants to know the answer to, could i defeat Ninja in a build battle. I mean could I? Yes. Do I think I can? Yes. […] I’m not going to sit here and lie to you. You can’t be humble with that type of question, like especially knowing my ability in game, I’m not going to be like ‘no I couldn’t take on Ninja.’ I’m going to be 100% honest with you, yeah I can take on Ninja in a build battle.”
