In Fortnite, since the release of the “Icons series”, there have been many skins from influencers, streamers, YouTubers and even stars. Epic has now developed a new Icon skin that is set to be released soon. You can find out here why this is one of the worst YouTubers in Fortnite.
Who is Ali A? Alastair Aiken, known as Ali-A or Matroix, is one of the most famous British YouTubers. He creates videos related to Call of Duty and Fortnite and has 17.5 million subscribers so far (as of May 17th, 2022). But many players despise Ali for his tactics of getting clicks on his videos.
Exaggerated thumbnails of his videos followed by unnecessary and misplaced red arrows with distorted faces is what we are talking about here – also known as clickbait.
Every YouTuber has heard of it and some also practice it to get many viewers on the videos easily and quickly. But Alastair has redefined chlickbait.
Ali-A has taken clickbait to a new level
What did Ali-A do? The 28-year-old YouTuber does not have a good reputation in the Fortnite community. There was a discussion on reddit about why Ali-A is so hated.
It’s not just the grossly exaggerated images in his videos that are meant to encourage clicks, but also his videos that don’t promise what the title says.
Players in Fortnite or passionate YouTube viewers have seen through his scam and despise the tactics used to generate his clicks on the video platform. Despite this, Epic Games has announced that it will be dedicating a skin to Alastair in Fortnite, and it eclipses many previous iconic skins.
Even though Ali doesn’t clickbait that much anymore, it’s stuck in the minds of many viewers. Many know that when a video with a red arrow shows up on their channel, people think twice about clicking it at all.
Ali’s skin is the best of the Icons series so far: iFireMonkey, a well-known leaker, has listed all of its skin’s cosmetic items and styles. These show a huge amount of possible combinations that players will have after purchase.
Compared to Ninja’s skin, Ali-A’s outfit is the best so far, even though Ninja is actually almost the face of Fortnite.
Ninja had been begging for a skin of their own for a long time and then received it after months of solicitation. However, Alistair gets a better outfit with cooler items, without being asked to do so.
What do you think of Ali getting the best iconic skin yet? Do you think it’s crazy that even Ninja, Fortnite’s flagship streamer, got a worse one? Let us know how you feel about it in the comments!
