The same goes for his YouTube and Twitter accounts (yes, the player is active on social media and likes to share important moments of his life with his audience) – the number of his fans increases every day.
“Bugha” started to play video games at the age of three. This entertainment became his hobby and, later, turned into a real passion. Nonetheless, the player doesn’t think that Fortnite is an addictive game.
Now the talented boy is mostly focused on promoting his channels on Twitch and YouTube and participating at various gaming events. Some gamers say that Giersdorf even has all chances to put “Ninja” in the shade and take the lead in the list of the best players.
TSM Myth is another young player who has come of age not so long ago. The story of his popularity began from his YouTube channel where he shared his Fortnite videos. Then he moved to Twitch and became one of the most followed broadcasters there. It is important to mention that TSM Myth is a leader of a professional Fortnite team.
There were many gossips around the player that his popularity on Twitch was decreasing because Fortnite was losing its traction on this platform. Maybe this situation became the reason for the professional gamer to switch his attention to other games. That is why he has begun to play and stream Valorant – a shooter from Riot Games that hasn’t been released yet but has a beta version. TSM Myth decided to hype with the help of the much-awaited launch of this game and got access to its test version. The player made a detailed review of it and even criticized some features.
FaZe Cloak is undoubtedly the most secretive Fortnite streamer who doesn’t reveal any facts about his personal life. Probably, the player just wants to heighten fans’ interest in his personality. Nevertheless, this secrecy doesn’t influence his excellent performance connected with playing Fortnite. He had quite a big number of subscribers on both platforms – YouTube and Twitch.

It is a matter of argument what is more important for this gamer on Twitch: playing Fortnite or having fun. It seems that SypherPK likes to fool and invent various ways how to play the game more weirdly, for instance:
