Tfue and FaZe Clan’s drama has been well publicized as the top Fortnite streamer clamored to get out of his contract.
Tfue claimed the terms were unfair and thus illegal while Banks played the public face of FaZe and said the contract was standard, that they tried to renegotiate when Tfue blew up and focused on their role in him blowing up in the first place.
The drama was pretty divisive in the Fortnite and wider gaming communities. Both sides have merit to their arguments but now FaZe wants to prove they are in the right. On August 1st, FaZe Clan filed an official lawsuit in a New York federal court, according to TMZ.
“Though a rookie athlete, Tenney was an adult when he signed his contract,” the lawsuit reads. “An initial rookie contract is a risk that the organization takes; most young players young careers never take off.”
These two lawsuits are going to be handled separately. Tfue’s suit was filed in California while FaZe targeted New York. Both states have different laws and rules that will impact the eventual decision made in this case.
We also haven’t seen many impassioned speeches from either party so it seems like both groups may be listening to their lawyers and not say anything that isn’t well planned out.
As I write that, Keemstar’s video on the whole situation will probably come out tonight.
The end result of this lawsuit will be important for the future of brand deals in esports. Tfue’s lawsuit wants streamers to be protected as artists under a California law that gives special considerations to entertainers and artists.
FaZe’s lawsuit is simply targeting Tfue for breach of contract and saying he violated his Non-disclosure agreement (NDA) with his comments over the last month.
What to expect when cars enter Fortnite
Cars are coming to Fortnite on August 5. Here’s how they’ll work.
Finally, the long wait is over. Cars are coming to Fortnite on August 5. Epic announced their release in a series of tweets on August 3 and 4, hyping up the community for what might be the most anticipated release of Fortnite Chapter 2.
Since the community has been waiting for cars for so long, data miners have been giving players what they want in the way of leaks as to how these cars will perform. For instance, we know that there will be four different types of cars in the game. Epic are releasing the names of these cars as promotion for their release, but FortTory gave us the stats back in June.
As many players already know, you’ll need to refuel the cars while you drive around. You can already see the gas station icons scattered around the map while using a boat or Choppa – the former is disabled at the time of writing, although it had been visible for weeks.
We also know a bit about the mechanics of cars. You will, reportedly, be able to gain metal by using the tire skid mechanic to run into things. The maximum speed will likely depend on the car, but will, reportedly, top-out at 45 mph.
Predictably, cars will damage players when they explode. The numbers in the game files were 200 damage to a player – enough to one-shot. This could be changed when the cars come out, however.
According to some of the additional leaks, the number of cars that spawn around the map will vary from game to game. There will be at least one on the map at all times and a maximum of 10.
Again, this could change and may have been a placeholder, as this particular piece of information comes from a couple of months ago when cars were first found in the game files.
Of course, all of this is subject to change. We’ll know everything for sure when the new patch releases tomorrow, August 5. We’ll have you covered with everything you need to know about cars when they make their way into Fortnite, so stay tuned!
When will the Fortnite Season 3 map stop draining?
When will the great flood end? When will the Fortnite Season 3 map reach its final stage? When will Atlantis be revealed?
When Fortnite Season 3 began, the bulk of the map was underwater. That was the primary gimmick of the season, along with Aquaman, the new locations, and new bosses. Overall, it was a unique idea that we’ve never seen in Fortnite before. Many fans were worried about what this would mean for the game, but it ended up being pretty fun.
Since then, the map has gone through several drying-out periods – the most recent of which was today, July 30. We’ve seen POIs such as Dirty Docks, Pleasant Park, Sweaty Sands, and Craggy Cliffs lose all of their water and return to how they were during Season 2 – with some slight adjustments.
At the time of writing, Season 3 is slated to end on August 27 – about one month from today. We may see the season extended for a week or two, but all players are hoping that we don’t have another Chapter 2 Seasons 1 and 2 on our hands.

With so much time left on the clock, many fans are wondering: when will the Season 3 map reach its final stage? Well, according to the information that we have now, the water will reach its final level on August 1. This is also, reportedly, when the ‘Ruins’ POI (assumed to be Atlantis) will enter the game.
We can assume, then, that we’ll be playing on this version of the map for the final month of the season. Will cars enter the game on August 1? We can only hope – although the message from No Sweat Insurance would suggest otherwise.
Hopefully, Epic have something up their sleeves for the final month of the season. With most players nearing level 100 at this point, we’ll need something new to fill our time. We’re holding out hope that cars are coming to Fortnite sooner rather than later.
Fortnite visual glitch points to Atlantis POI layout
Putting your settings on ‘low’ shows all of the tiles that the Fortnite Atlantis POI will affect.
When many players first saw the Fortnite Season 3 map, they were excited at the concept of unveiling new POIs over time. As the water levels have continued to go down, however, we learned that nearly all of the underwater POIs are the same as we left them. Sure, Slurpy Swamp and Dirty Docks might look a bit messy, but they’re inherently the same as they were in Season 2.
The only holdout that we have is the ‘Ruins’ POI, which most fans assume to be Atlantis – Aquaman’s home. Since we only have three bosses on the Fortnite map, many players think that Aquaman will be an NPC boss when Atlantis comes to Fortnite – but that’s only speculation.
On July 27, Epic made their periodic changes to the map. The water levels went down, which revealed more of the older POIs that were underwater for the first half of the season. There weren’t many substantial changes with this update, but there’s something going on at the giant whirlpool in the northwest of the map.
Most fans already had this area pegged for Atlantis when the location was first leaked. It seems to be closer than ever, with the inhabitants carving out their own little slice of the Fortnite island.
Although this map location represents where Atlantis will be, there’s another piece of evidence that hints towards the layout of Atlantis. Do you remember the Aquaman trailer? It showed him and his Fishstick army in front of a wall of water. Fans speculated as to whether or not this was a reference to Atlantis or to the Season 2 storm. Well, a new visual glitch gives strong hints that the wall of water will be in the game.
When you play Fortnite with your settings on Low, an outline around the Whirlpool appears. This, likely, shows the squares that the wall of water will affect. Basically, it’s around the existing whirlpool.
Atlantis will be the biggest addition to Fortnite Season 3 when it eventually comes out. A wall of water surrounding the location would be awesome, and set it apart from all of the other Chapter 2 locations that we’ve seen. We’re excited to see how it works when it finally enters the game.
