FaZe Banks is rapid-firing tweets about the Tfue lawsuit (Updated with Banks video)

Published

The owner and founder of FaZe Clan is still actively going after the Tfue lawsuit and providing his side the lawsuit story.

We have been covering this developing story all day, and if you want to be caught up just check out our home page.

Update 9:34 PM PT: FaZe Banks has released an official video responding to the allegations against FaZe Clan posed by Tfue. That can be found here:

In this video, he provides further proof against two more of Tfue’s claims. He shows Tfue pressuring other people to jump off a bridge, something he claimed FaZe pressured him to do. He also shows Tfue drinking and another partygoer chugging a handle of alcohol, at a party not on FaZe premises.

The rest of the article can be found below in chronological order of Banks comments throughout the day.

There you can find the initial story and immediate reactions from people in the industry, Nadeshot’s comments about FaZe and subsequent apology, and FaZe Banks calling Nadeshot a “piece of shit.”

Banks didn’t stop there and he has been active on social media all day in regards to this story.

He also went on KEEMSTAR’s Drama Alert YouTube show to do an interview. If you don’t want to watch the full interview, there is a quick summary below.

While Keem did try to get in some important questions, the interview mostly consisted of Banks just repeating how much he cares for Tfue and how he catapulted his career.

That much is true, but allegations like FaZe signing an 11-year-old and asking him to lie about his age went untouched.

On that interview, it seemed like he hadn’t even actually read the Hollywood Reporter story that kicked all of this off. When Keem mentioned the allegations of underage drinking, Banks seemed surprised to hear that.

He even admitted he “maybe should have done more research before coming on.”

Now it seems like he has read the report, but he is still actively tweeting about the situation. Here are his tweets in order:

This falls on a common misinterpretation of the report. Tfue never said that FaZe took 80% of his tournament winnings. That isn’t reported anywhere but has been brought up by Banks multiple times.

He said they took 80% of his public appearance fees and streaming / YouTube revenue, those points have been refuted by Banks, but this clip doesn’t prove anything in the report is incorrect.

Here Banks points out the affect joining FaZe Clan had on Tfue’s popularity, and it is hard to argue with that sharp increase in viewers.

This appears to be conjecture about Tfue’s motivations for bringing on the lawsuit.

Here alludes to an interesting underlying part of the report. Who actually persuaded Tfue to start this lawsuit. Based on Banks comments on Drama Alert and in this tweet, it seems like he might think Tfue is being pushed to do this by someone around him.

This tweet could get him into a lot of trouble. In Drama Alert, he mentions that Tfue was already drinking before joining FaZe, but that doesn’t really matter.

As the owner of a house and a company, providing alcohol to a minor is illegal, it doesn’t matter if they were pressured into it or not. Posting that he is drinking (in Mexico where it is legal) does not make Tfue’s claims any less illegal.

He begins to finish up by saying he still loves Tfue, and just wants him to call him.

He continues trying to finish up with this tweet, where it seems like he is saying that Tfue’s contract would let them take more of his winnings, but they have chosen not to do that.

This actually appears to be his last tweet, and he reiterates they have only earned 60k from Tfue.

The Fortnite rivalry between Tfue and Ninja continues as they face each other in Season 3

After taking long breaks from Fortnite, both Tfue and Ninja are back in Chapter 3. Here’s how their latest in-game encounter went.

Fortnite streamers Ninja and Tfue

Fans worldwide always appreciate it when the likes of Ninja and Tfue face other, especially in Fortnite. The game seems to have caught a second wind in Chapter 3 as the biggest streamers are back at playing it.

It wouldn’t be an overstatement to say that Tfue and Ninja are two of the most popular Fortnite streamers ever. Despite quitting the game temporarily, they’re still associated with it.

It is no surprise that Turner ‘Tfue’ Tenney and Tyler ‘Ninja‘ Blevins are also two of the most skilled players in history. Accordingly, it is invariably nerve-wracking when they take on each other in multiplayer titles.

Ninja finally takes revenge against Tfue in Fortnite

Even though Ninja has thrashed countless Fortnite players over the years, he hasn’t been equally dominant against Tfue. So much so that the Turner has defeated him five times in their seven encounters so far.

However, Ninja and Tfue found each other in Greasy Grove during a Solos match recently. Considering their experience and expertise, it is natural for them to be placed in a lobby together.

Ninja entered the location on a Wolf while Tfue was already there looting. Turner was low on health with just 12 HP, 50 Shield, and 50 Overshield. On the flip side, Blevins was maxed out on shields as well as health.

True to his nature, Tfue didn’t waste a second and instantly took shots when he spotted Ninja. This could have been a wise decision against any other player, but Blevins was quick enough to take cover and land three consecutive shots on Tfue which led to the latter getting out of the game.

Soon after, Ninja’s viewers informed the streamer that he just eliminated Tfue. He went back to confirm the same and said, “Oh my god! that was him. Another one dude! Geeg”

While the streamers must have moved on from the incident already, it was undoubtedly special for the fans. The informal rivalry began in 2018, and it is always to delight to see the veterans enjoying Fortnite.

Tfue is still some steps ahead of Ninja when it comes to winning 1v1s. However, their encounters have become more common than ever in Chapter 3, and we might see Ninja bouncing back soon.

Tfue sets Fortnite Chapter 3 Season 3 record for the most kills

Tfue returned to Fortnite in Chapter 3, and hasn’t looked back ever since. He now holds the record for most eliminations in a Squads game.

Tfue is back in Fortnite

Tfue’s return to Fortnite has been no less than a highlight reel so far. He’s won several Zero Build tournaments and made the record for the most kills in a Squads game recently.

Tfue played a major role in making Fortnite the biggest Battle Royale title ever. Back in the day, he was the face of the game and fans could not believe it when he quit in Chapter 2.

However, Tfue is finally back and he’s causing mayhem in the newly introduced Zero Build mode.

Tfue and Zemie drop 68 eliminations in a Fortnite Squads game

Tfue and fellow Twitch streamer Zemie have participated in several tournaments together. Fans are well aware of their skills and synergy which has helped in yielding great results consistently.

In a recent live stream, Zemie and Tfue tried to drop 50 bombs in every game. This basically means that they were trying to get over 50 kills collectively. A Squads lobby is definitely better to attempt such challenges because it is easier to find groups of players.

Little did the streamers know that they would end up creating a record for the most kills in a Squads game. The fact that they accomplished this feat as a duo is even more impressive. Tfue racked up 38 kills while Zemie had 30 eliminations under his name.

A total of 68 elimination in a single game is as unreal as it sounds. There is no denying the fact that Tfue and Zemie are two of the most skilled players out there, but eliminating 70% of the players in a lobby also requires a ton of luck.

Fortnite community reacts to Tfue and Zemie’s record

Interestingly, Tfue’s latest Fortnite record has received a mixed response from loopers around the world. While some creators have praised the duo, others believe that they created the record in a bot lobby.

A bot lobby includes a ton of AI. It’s easier to get kills in a bot lobby because the AI can randomly spawn close to the player.

On the other hand, several fans also pointed out that famous streamers get a ton of free/easy kills because of stream snipers.

Amidst the contrasting opinions, Tfue and Zemie proudly hold the record for most kills in a Fortnite Squads game. It is safe to assume that no one will be able to break this record for a long time, let alone in Chapter 3 Season 3.

Fortnite player reaches Level 400 in Season 3 already: Here’s how they did it

A Fortnite YouTuber has achieved the unimaginable by reaching Level 400 of the Chapter 3 Season 3 Battle Pass within the first week.

Fortnite Chapter 3 Season 3

While the majority of the community is struggling to get XP in Fortnite Chapter 3 Season 3, a dedicated XP grinder has already surpassed level 400. Here’s how they pulled it off.

It wouldn’t be an exaggeration to say that the XP grind in Fortnite Chapter 3 Season 3 is merciless. Epic Games has repeatedly nerfed the XP system and loopers are nervous about completing the Battle Pass and unlocking their favorite skins.

On the other end of the spectrum, there’s a player named LootStation who is on his way to reaching level 1000 in Chapter 3 Season 3.

Fortnite player finds the best ways to get XP in Chapter 3 Season 3

It is no surprise that LootStation is constantly accused of buying Battle Pass tiers. However, even if that’s true, the YouTuber could have purchased a maximum of 100 levels and still managed to get 300 more levels even before the Week 2 challenges go live.

LootStation is no stranger to unlocking ‘impossible’ Battle Pass levels. Ever since the release of Impostors, he has relied on the LTM for XP. However, in Chapter 3 Season 3, playing Team Ruble in Squads is LootStation’s go-to tactic for XP.

In a recent video, the XP grinder claimed that he’s making the most out of the buffed Accolade XP. In each game, looting from chests and ammo boxes grants him 30,000 XP while quests hand out over 5,000 XP.

Loot Lake is one of the best locations to get XP from chests and looting. There’s an abundance of chests and the OG POI also allows players to fish. Fishing has always been a reliable XP method and LootStation recommends it as well.

The Fortnite community reacts to LootStation’s grind

It is evident that LootStation is not a casual player. He’s summarized the location of every chest in Loot Lake and has a fixed looting routine. In the meantime, his team focuses on competing in the Daily, Weekly, and Milestone quests that are a stable source of XP.

Even though the Team Rumble looting strategy is effective, LootStation has put in countless hours to reach level 400 with it. While his supporters love the grind, others find it unnecessary as there are no rewards after level 200.

LootStation’s goal is to prove his worth as an XP grinder and always discover the best ways to get XP. The YouTuber is certainly succeeding in doing so, and considering his current level, he should be able to reach level 1000 easily before the end of Chapter 3 Season 3.
