As Myth his still mains Fortnite and usually only deviates with other fps games, it’s definitely worth checking out the equipment that he uses to maintain his competitive edge. Let’s look at Myth’s gaming setup as well as the gear he uses for streaming.
Ali Kabbani from Dearborn, MI is one of the biggest names in Fortnite streaming. Myth started playing Fortnite as soon as it released and quickly gained a name for himself as one of the game’s top editors. However, his real big break came in January 2018 when he was signed on as team captain for TSM’s Battle Royale team when he was still only 18 years old.
Myth’s setup includes three LG UltraGear 27-inch 27GL83A-B monitors. Myth’s monitors were sponsored by LG. They are pretty wide at 27-inches and boast a 2560 x 1440 IPS display with a 1ms response time as well as a 144Hz Nvidia G-Sync-compatible refresh rate. What’s noteworthy about this is that just as with summit1g and DrLupo, he too feels that a 144Hz refresh rate is sufficient for his intensive fps gameplays. After all, even with a sponsorship, he wouldn’t accept monitors that he felt would negatively affect his gameplay.
As for adjustability, while the LG UltraGear 27-inch 27GL83A-B stand does allow for height adjustments of between ~22.6 – 26.9 inches, 5° tilting and 90° pivoting, it does not offer the option to rotate the screen. That will need to be done by manually moving the stand. Furthermore, the monitor can be removed from it’s mount and weighs ~9.3lbs (~4,22kg), in case you are planning on mounting it on a multi-monitor or wall stand.
Myth’s mouse is a Logitech G900 Chaos Spectrum. Myth’s RGB mouse, along with his mousepad, keyboard and headset, was sponsored by Logitech due to his being a member of TSM. With that said, the Logitech G900, while perhaps not as popular as the Logitech G Pro, is still considered to be one of the top gaming mice that are currently available.
The Logitech G900 Spectrum Chaos is an ambidextrous mouse that recharges when the wire is plugged in and can be used as either a wired or wireless device. If used wirelessly, it can last up to 30 hours before needing to be recharged.
Its buttons are physically adjustable magnetic forward and back buttons. It also features a Pixart PMW3366 sensor that can be adjusted within a 200 – 12,000 dpi range, which can be done through the mouse’s software along with other memory profile configurations and lighting settings.
Myth uses a Logitech G840 XL mousepad. This mousepad is designed to create an even gaming surface that provides more than enough space for both the keyboard and mouse. However, with that said, its dimensions are 90cm x 40cm (~35.4 x ~15.7 inches), which means that it might be restrictive to gamers who tend to use broad movements with their mouse. As such, they might want to simply allocate the mousepad for mouse-use only, while keeping the keyboard on the desk itself. It also features a rubber underside to prevent it from moving during gameplays and can be rolled up for transportation.
Myth keyboard is a Logitech G910 Orion Spectrum RGB. The Logitech G910 is a RGB keyboard that integrates Romer-G mechanical switches that actuate at 1.5mm, as well as nine programable G-keys. These keys can be programmed with 27 custom commands and across three separate profiles. They are located on the keyboards left, as well as above the WSDF keys. Most of the keycaps have deep grooves to help prevent your fingers from slipping, but there are some gamers who find them to be counterproductive. So, you might want to try them out at a brick-and-mortar store before purchase.
There are also volume and play/pause control buttons on the top right corner of the keyboard, as well as two removable wrist-rests.
Myth’s headset is a Logitech G533 Wireless Gaming. This non-RGB headset utilizes Pro G drivers and DTS X 7.1 Surround Sound that provides audio feedback from multiple channels in order to realistically simulate sound being produced from different directions and distances. The earcups are cushioned with a washable mesh fabric that is designed to circulate the sound waves in order to reduce the pressure that they would cause on the eardrums. They rotate at 90° to allow them to lie flat around your neck when not in use.
While most of the device is constructed of a lightweight plastic, the adjustable u-shaped band is constructed from padded black metal, bringing its weight to ~349g. The microphone is retractable and flexible and automatically mutes when slid back into place. It comes with a built-in pop-filter, as well as noise-cancelling features. When not plugged in, it has a 15-hour battery life and can be used within 15 meters of your computer, so it can still be used when you’re AFK. However, many users have reported that the audio quality is ok, but not amazing. The wireless mode is activated with an on/off button on one of the earcups.
Myth uses an Audio-Technica ATR2100-USB microphone. This is arguably one of the most important aspects of Myth’s streaming setup, as his channel is large enough form him to require the best tools possible to produce a professional production. Therefore, although it isn’t as popular as other microphones are among streamers, it is still worth looking into even though it may not be considered the best out there.
It is a cardioid dynamic microphone that allows for both XLR and USB outputs, as well as a built-in headphone jack to allow you to monitor your microphone input immediately. As it is cardioid-patterned microphone, it is unidirectional and so requires for vocalizations to be made directly into the front of the mic. This is intended to reduce interference from external noise sources. As it is on the cheaper side, you might want to listen to review and comparison videos to see whether it will provide you with the sound quality that you are looking for.
Some extras include a tripod desk stand and microphone clamp, as well as an XLR cable and a USB cable.
Myth’s webcam uses a Logitech C922. This is one of the more commonly used webcams among streamers, and is also used by ItsSky, TSM_Daequan and BurkeBlack. It is a clip-on, plug-and-play webcam that is capable at recording and streaming at 1080p at 30fps or 720p at 60fps. It also has a 78° field of view that can be panned and adjusted in the webcam’s software.
