Update: Nadeshot has now backtracked on his earlier statements about FaZe Clan’s leadership. He apologizes for his earlier statements and says they do not reflect the FaZe Clan’s management correctly.
I have the utmost respect for what Banks, Temper, Rain and Apex have created at FaZe. We’ve been working together and alongside one another for almost a decade. I apologize if my previous tweets don’t reflect that sentiment. This situation is being blown out of proportion.— 100T Nadeshot (@Nadeshot) May 20, 2019
Nadeshot also stated that he prefers to avoid drama and promises to be more careful with his words in the future.
I’ve done my best to avoid unnecessary controversy and drama over the last few years but my tweets today were an oversight on all accounts. I’d like to apologize to everyone over at the FaZe Clan organization for jumping in unnecessarily.— 100T Nadeshot (@Nadeshot) May 20, 2019
100 Thieves’ CEO and Founder, Nadeshot, took to Twitter to address the recent revelation that Tfue is suing FaZe Clan over his ‘oppresive’ contract. Nadeshot is afraid that the lawsuit could negatively impact the esports industry.
A major part of the law system in the United States revolves around court decisions and precedent. Nadeshot believes that the new Tfue lawsuit vs. FaZe Clan could end up hurting the esports industry.
Nadeshot himself is the owner and founder of the 100 Thieves esports organization.
Nadeshot voices concerns over Tfue lawsuit
Nadeshot went to his Twitter account to discuss his concerns over the Tfue lawsuit. By his interpretation of the events, he believes that the end result could hurt the esports industry.
The lawsuit, if it goes to trial, could determine massive precedent for esports as a whole. Depending on the facts of the case, the industry could be negatively impacted.
At the same time, it is important to point out that regulations and new rulings could secure players in the future. The outcome of the case, if Tfue is telling the truth, could help ensure that the industry becomes more stable and safe for esports players.
Similarly, if Tfue’s claims end up being bogus, it could seriously hurt players in real problem situations. Lawyers, judges, and juries look at past cases for guidance and this one will shape the landscape for years to come.
Nadeshot’s tweets suggest that he knows that some members of the FaZe Clan org might be capable of doing the crimes alleged.
This should also be taken with a grain of salt because Nadeshot’s 100 Thieves is a competing organization.

All details of the Tfue lawsuit are unconfirmed at this time. The information was released by his lawyers. More information to come.
