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.

Here’s a link to the complete contract for those that want to read the whole thing: Tfue FaZe Clan contract.

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.

Fortnite v21.20 update delayed by a day and here’s why

The Fortnite community was desperately waiting for the v21.20 update. However, it won’t arrive on July 5, 2022 as there’s an unexpected delay.

fortnite reality seed

Amidst the community’s sky-scraping expectations, Fortnite has delayed the v21.20 update. From its new release date to early patch notes, here’s everything we know about the upcoming patch so far.

To say the least, Fortnite Chapter 3 Season 3 has been a roller coaster ride until now. While the map changes have been brilliant, the game has been really unstable with Unreal Engine 5. Moreover, there haven’t been enough ways for players to steadily level up their Battle Pass and unlock skins like Darth Vader.

Fortnite community expects more No Sweat Summer content in v21.20 update

This explains why loopers eagerly await updates as they contain a ton of content such as bug fixes, new quests, and events. However, the v21.20 update that should have been released today has been delayed by a day.

Fortnite Cash Cups to take place on July 5 instead of the v21.20 update

From leakers to content creators to casuals, almost everyone in the community missed an announcement by Fortnite regarding this season’s Cash Cups.

Apparently, Round 2 Duos Cash Cup and Duos Contender & Open Hype Cups are taking place on July 5 instead of July 6 because of game updates arriving around the same time. This clearly indicates that the v21.20 update will now be released on July 6.

This is in contrast to Fortnite’s previous announcement in which the developers wanted pros to keep an eye on the Temple Bloom landmark. Loopers spotted a Reality Root there, which has always led to significant map changes.

From the looks of it, v21.20 was originally scheduled for July 5 as Fortnite has been constantly releasing updates on Tuesdays. It is certainly surprising that the developers have broken this pattern already.

What to expect from Fortnite v21.20 in Chapter 3 Season 3?

Even though Epic Games itself talked about the changes in Temple Bloom, leakers haven’t discovered anything related to it in the files. What’s more startling is the fact that the upcoming themes for Condo Canyon and Sleepy Sound are already here.

Apart from map changes, Indiana Jones and his cosmetics will become available from July 7, 2022. This also means that loopers will have new quests to complete which include a new set of Weekly and Vibin’ challenges.

Last but not least, the Battle Royale modes should finally get some No Sweat Summer content including NPCs (Unpeely, Summer Drift, and Boardwalk Ruby) and Surfboards. The new release date for v21.20 should be July 6, 2022, and the downtime should begin around 4 PM ET and 9 PM BST.

Fortnite v21.20 early patch notes: Indiana Jones, No Sweat Summer, Luke Skywalker skin, more

Fortnite v21.20 is right around the corner. From Indiana Jones to new content for the 2022 No Sweat Summer event, there’s a lot to expect.

Indiana Jones, No Sweat Summer, and other content that should arrive in Fortnite v21.20

Fortnite is all set to release the 21.20 update on July 6, 2022. Indiana Jones will finally become available in the Battle Pass, No Sweat Summer content will arrive in Battle Royale modes, and as usual, the Reality Tree will continue to grow.

The community has sky-scraping expectations from Fortnite v21.20. Even though map changes have been frequent and brilliant in Chapter 3 Season 3, the No Sweat Summer event and the XP system (in terms of more opportunities to earn XP) certainly need improvement.

Here’s everything players can expect in the second major update for Fortnite Chapter 3 Season 3.

Fortnite Reality Tree to affect Condo Canyon, Sleepy Sound, and Temple Bloom in v21.10

First and foremost, the Reality Tree will reach major locations like Sleepy Sound. Loopers have discovered a new set of roots near Shifty Shafts and they’re most likely heading towards Sleepy.

Another location where we will see the influence of the Reality Tree is Condo Canyon. Interestingly, leakers have already revealed the upcoming themes. Like Butter Bloom and Logjam Lotus, Sleepy Sound and Condo Canyon will have recurring themes which include:

  • Froniter
  • Coliseum
  • Coral Castle
  • Neo Tillted for Sleepy Sound and Lazy Lagoon for Condo Canyon

There’s a Reality Root near the Temple Bloom landmark as well. HYPEX has revealed that one of the themes in Temple Bloom is codenamed The Tower in the files, and that’s the only information we have for now.

There’s a possibility that v21.20 only focuses on Condo Canyon and Sleepy Sound as the developers are yet to add the updated version of Temple Bloom in the files.

New Indiana Jones skin and temple to arrive in Fortnite v21.20

Indiana Jones is the secret skin in the Fortnite Chapter 3 Season 3 Battle Pass. It cannot be unlocked at the moment, and will be available from July 7, 2022. Loopers who own the Battle Pass wil have to complete special quests to unlock the cosmetics which include:

  • Indiana Jones outfit
  • Indiana Jones Banner Icon
  • Raider’s Relics Harvesting Tool
  • Rogue Archaology Wrap
  • Expedition Bag Back Bling

It is worth noting that these are the cosmetics on Page 1. These will not only become unlockable with v21.20, but you’ll also be able to get a look at the next page.

Even though this might be a stretch, but many players believe that Indiana Jones will get his own spawn location. The aforementioned Temple Bloom POI could turn into a temple dedicated for the Indiana Jones boss/NPC. However, readers must take this claim with a huge grain of salt.

New No Sweat Summer content coming to Fortnite Battle Royale

The Island Hopper quests were decent, but players were disappointed to see them as the only ‘summer event’ content. However, leakers like iFireMonkey and Epic Games itself have claimed that more summer content is coming.

NPcs like Unpeely, Summer Drift, and Boardwalk Ruby, and vehicles like Surfboards will return to BR modes. Moreover, you can look forward to completing summer-themed quests in Battle Royale that should grant XP and free cosmetics.

Battle Royale content will certainly help in making No Sweat Summer 2022 one of the best summer events in Fortnite’s history.

Luke Skywalker NPC

Epic Games has released a ton of Star-Wars content in Fortnite Chapter 3 Season 3 which includes Darth Vader as a boss and his skin in the Battle Pass as a tier 100 reward. HYPEX has disclosed that there’s a Lightsaber in the files for a Luke NPC.

Based on the leak, it is safe to assume that Luke Skywalker will be released as an NPC and a skin, like this father. However, it is uncertain if he’ll be a part of the upcoming update.

Last but not least, weekly quests for Week 5/ Week 6 and Vibin’ quests will be added to files with Fortnite v21.20. There aren’t any solid leaks regarding weapons as we’ve already received three new weapons (Two-Shot shotgun, Hammer AR, and DMR) this season.

Fortnite v21.30 will release on July 19, 2022 following which Epic Games will take a summer break that will take place between July 24 and August 12.
