Tfue’s alleged FaZe contract has been leaked

Published

on

Tfue’s contract with FaZe has been leaked! The contract reveals many of the details needed to build a valid case against FaZe Clan.

It would seem that the Tfue contract has now become public information as of Thrusday, May 23rd. A publication named ‘The Blast’ has released the contract in full.

The contract does not completely damn FaZe Clan, but it does potentially confirm some of Tfue’s accusations. Let’s take a closer look.

Tfue FaZe Contract leaked

Tfue’s official contract has been revealed via the ‘The Blast.’ The contract seems to be legit and according to @KEEMSTAR, the contract has been confirmed to be 100% real by ‘The Blast.’

Keemstar’s confirmation tweet

While the contract does not directly state that FaZe Clan would take the massive amounts claimed by Tfue, it leaves the issue open. This means that FaZe Banks could be truthful in saying that they never took more than $60K from Tfue.

With that said, due to the contract’s wording, there’s a chance that FaZe COULD have done so. This means that Tfue and potentially other members would always have a specter of doubt floating above them as they earned money.

Confidentiality Agreement

The contract contains a strict confidentiality agreement which limits what Tfue can and can’t say about his contract and other FaZe activities. Such sections are common in contracts to prevent leaks of information.

It is not unknown whether or not these terms have been breached as a result of this whole lawsuit debacle.

Confidentiality Agreement

Gamer and/or Gamer’s representatives shall not issue any press releases nor make any other statements about Gamer’s Services, the Team, Company, its affiliates, agents and/or employees, or any other party involved in the Services (e.g. the sponsors) in any media (including, without limitation, any online or print communications) without Company’s prior written consent.

Exclusivity Rights for FaZe Clan

The contract also has a section devoted to FaZe Clan’s exclusive rights to Tfue’s future deals under this contract. FaZe could match any offer made by other organizations to keep Tfue.

While Tfue and his legal team argue that is unfair, this type of contract feature is common in sports contracts.

Exclusivity Agreement

Gamer receives an offer from another ‘Fortnite’ team to join such team upon lawful termination of the Agreement by Gamer (“Offer”), Gamer shall be obligated to provide the Offer to Company and the identity of the party providing the Offer, and Company shall have the right to match such Offer during a period of fifteen (15) business days following Company’s actual receipt of the Offer (the “Matching Right”). If Company elects to exercise the Matching Right, Company shall inform Gamer within said fifteen (15) business day period, and Company shall, automatically have exclusive rights to Gamer’s services on the same terms as the Offer, as supplemented by all of the terms and conditions of the Agreement.

Money and Payouts – Compensation

The main issue of the Tfue lawsuit has to do with the amount of money FaZe could potentially take from Tfue and other members.

According to the agreement, the payout system is a little bit complex, but does line up with what both sides have been saying.

Prize Money Agreement

For prize money, Tfue gets 80% of all winnings and FaZe takes 20%. This lines up with some of the claims made by FaZe Banks.

However, some of the other values lean in favor of Tfue’s argument. FaZe Clan takes 80% of all ‘Brand Deals’ obtained by FaZe Clan. The deals obtained by Tfue are split 50/50.

Here’s the full breakdown of the payout values according to the contract:

  • Prize Money – Tfue: 80% – Faze Clan: 20%
  • Appearances at Events – Tfue 50% – Faze Clan: 50%
  • Brand Deals brought by gamer – Tfue 50% – Faze – 50%
  • In-game ‘stickers’ – Tfue: 50% – Faze: 50%
  • Brand Deal brought by Faze – Tfue 20% – Faze – 80%
Compensation Agreement

The wording does not officially say anything about the in-game Creator Codes, but it does leave the ‘in-game stickers’ as a possible way to get that money from Tfue.

The ‘brand deals’ make up big parts of streamer revenue on Twitch. For the deals that FaZe obtained for Tfue, they got a massive 80% cut. For those obtained by Tfue himself, Tfue only got to keep 50% of the earnings.

The contract does give FaZe Clan a wide berth to take considerable amounts of money from Tfue. While this may be legal, some of the values do seem skewed in FaZe Clan’s favor. We’ll just have to wait and see as more details come out.

Keep in mind that this contract has not been confirmed by FaZe Clan as of this time.

Fortnite v13.20 Update patch notes

Published

on

It’s a new week, and that means that there’s a fresh update for us all to enjoy, as the Fortnite v12.30 patch goes live on all platforms on Tuesday, June 30, introducing a new weapon and a major change to an existing item.

Fortnite Chapter 2, Season 3 has been live for a few weeks, and while the first major update of the season made sweeping changes to the game, Epic haven’t sat on their hands, dropping the 13.10 update to add Firefly Jars, and a second patch on June 30.

The Flare Gun and Portable Upgrade Benches are the major inclusions in this week’s patch, and we’ve got everything you need to know about the new items.

Flare Gun

Epic love to include new weapons for us to try out, and the v13.20 Update is no exception, with the Flare Gun finally making it’s long-awaited debut in the game.

The weapon, which holds six cartridges and deals 60 damage on a direct hit, was first spotted in the game’s files all the way back in Chapter 1, but for one reason or another never made it to the full game. Finally, though, it’s arrived, and with its ability to start fires, it is the perfect way to burn through enemy structures and send them back to the pre-game lobby.

The Flare Gun is the latest weapon added to Fortnite.

Portable Upgrade Bench

The other major change is the to the Upgrade Bench, which can now be broken and carried around to be used whenever you need it.

Simply hit it with your harvesting tool and it will transform into floor loot, which you can pick up and place in your inventory.

The Upgrade Bench can now be broken.

Loserfruit Fortnite skin bundle: Leak and release date

Loserfruit Fortnite skin

The next cosmetic item in Fortnite’s Icon series, this time for streamer Loserfruit, has been leaked, with the release date all but confirmed for June 21.

Following on from Ninja’s skin release earlier in the year, Loserfruit, one of the most popular Australian streamers, has been waiting on her skin coming to the game for months now.

Its initial launch was pushed back due to ongoing protests around the world, but it looks like it’s finally getting a proper release.

On June 21, a handful of leakers got their hands on the encrypted files for the skin, and accessed them, showcasing a full, high-quality look at the skin we’ll soon be able to rock in-game.

Featuring a replica of Loserfruit’s hoody with rainbow-colored arms, the arm portions light up spectacularly, and there is also a backpack that mirrors her own real-life version.

Loserfruit skin release date and price

The skin is set to release on June 21, now confirmed by Epic Games. Reliable data miner iFireMonkey says that a source has confirmed this date for the entire bundle.

The bundle includes a fruity pickaxe too, as well as the Bounce Berry emote.

The skin will be available at 8pm ET. It will cost 1,500 V-Bucks for just the skin, or 2,000 for the whole bundle.

Loserfruit herself is actually already rocking the skin in-game on her stream, thanks to exclusive access before the rest of us, so you can see it in action here.

We’ll keep you updated when the skin bundle is available to purchase in the item shop.

When does Fortnite Season 3 end and Season 4 begin?

Find out the Fortnite Season 3 end date and Season 4 start date for 2020.

Published

on

We’re only a couple of days into Fortnite Season 3, but fans are already wondering when the next season will come. We’re not sick of the new season – far from it. The past couple of seasons have lasted about 120 days each, though, so it’s not crazy to hope that this one is significantly shorter.

When Fortnite Season 3 released, data miners were quick to tell everyone how much time was left in the season. At the time of release, Epic had an end date of August 27, 2020. That’s only 71 days long, which is quite reasonable.

Not so fast, though. Data miner FireMonkey was quick to point out that the number of weekly challenges doesn’t match an 11-week season. There are already 12 weeks worth of challenges in the game files, which would have Season 3 ending on September 3.

This isn’t out of the ordinary. Epic have, traditionally, extended seasons for an extra week or two with Overtime Challenges. The past two seasons, which were both extended over a month past their original end-date, are still outliers in the history of Fortnite seasons.

A one-week extension is nothing major. We can live with that – and will even enjoy the Overtime Challenges that Epic give us. There’s no need to panic, right now, but the season will likely be extended at least one time.

Normally, this wouldn’t be something we’d cover so early in a Fortnite season, but the recent history of lengthy seasons makes us wonder if this one will follow suit. Hopefully, we’ll be playing Season 4 by September 4.
