Tfue’s lawyer calls parts of FaZe Clan’s lawsuit against Tfue “Laughable”

Published

on

The drama between FaZe Clan and Tfue isn’t going away any time soon, but Tfue’s lawyer says FaZe may have thrown the case against his client.

Real quick, let’s recap the Tfue-FaZe drama. Everyone is probably aware of the story at this point, but a quick refresher. Tfue signed a three year rookie deal with FaZe Clan in April of 2018.

Right after, he began to blow up in popularity and that fall he won the Fall Skirmish alongside Cloakzy to become the winningest Fortnite player by prize pool. Also around that time, although unbeknownst to us, FaZe claims they were trying to renegotiate a deal with Tfue.

He reportedly turned them down over and over, and eventually filed a lawsuit against FaZe Clan in spring of 2019, just one third of the way through his contract.

That was when everything blew up. FaZe Banks released a video titled “Dear Tfue” that his lawyers probably hated and an angry tweetstorm.

Then, just last month, FaZe counter-sued Tfue. While the original lawsuit was filed in California, FaZe targeted Tfue in New York courts. That’s the recap of the situation, so now here’s what is new:

Tfue’s Lawyer Comes after FaZe’s Lawsuit

In a new interview with theScore esports, Tfue’s lawyer (Bryan Freedman) says he was celebrating when he went over the new lawsuit.

“After I read the complaint, I actually had to check the date on the calendar because I thought it was Christmas. I thought someone had given my client a present. This complaint filed in New York is an absolute gift.”

Now obviously Freedman is an attorney representing Tfue and his stance is clearly going to be biased because of that, but his reasons for celebrating this new lawsuit seem to make sense.

For more of the lawyer’s quotes and added context around this new lawsuit, check out the video from theScore which breaks it all down:

Fortnite Season 5 portal locations could point to Kevin’s return

Fans are connecting the dots with the Fortnite Season 5 portals, suggesting that Epic are teasing the return of Kevin the Cube.

Published

Fortnite Season 5 mirrors a lot of the themes from its Chapter 1 counterpart. Some fans are using the new portals to suggest that Kevin could make his return to the game soon.

The plotline of Fortnite is one of the more convoluted stories in gaming. We think we’ve generally cracked the format that Fortnite is using, but that doesn’t mean that we know exactly what’s going to happen.

One of the most iconic characters in Fortnite is the giant cube that appeared on the map during Chapter 1 Season 5. The community named the cube Kevin, and Epic later adopted the name and added it to the story.

Most fans assume that Kevin will return to Fortnite at some point, but when? Well, some players are connecting the Season 5 portals to the return of Kevin – possibly at the end of the current season or at the beginning of next.

Season 5 Portals hint at Kevin’s return

One common Fortnite theory is that Kevin is located in the redacted bunker in the southeast of the map. The bunker is located in the exact spot where Kevin first appeared in Chapter 1, which is the primary fact behind this theory.

As Season 5 progresses, the bounty hunter portals that have opened around the map started to take shape. A few Fortnite theorists, including u/trewasqo, connected these dots to make a cube. Of course, this would point to Kevin’s return to the Fortnite map.

This is probably intentional on the part of Epic, but it could be that fans are using confirmation bias to make these portals fit the theme. One more portal could appear before the end of the season and wreck the whole theory.

Fortnite players had a similar observation during Chapter 1. When you look at all of the corrupted areas left by Kevin, you could form a cube around the map. Similar to Season 5, there were seven corrupted areas and seven runes – just like the seven portals that are now on the Chapter 2 map.

This could be considered a bit of a reach on the part of fans, but anything’s possible. We’d be shocked if Kevin never returned to Fortnite, so whether or not this theory is true doesn’t matter. Kevin will almost certainly be back, whether or not Epic are intentionally hinting at his return.

Of course, we’ll have to wait and see what happens. Only time will tell.

New voice lines hint at Fortnite Season 5 season-ending event

The most recent Fortnite Season 5 update added new voice lines to the game, suggesting the Zero Point will have a role in the Season 5 event.

Fortnite Voice lines point to event

The Fortnite v15.40 update released some new and leaked NPC voice lines that hint towards a massive season-ending event to close Season 5.

Fortnite Season 4 was a standalone season, in many ways. Instead of focusing on the overarching Fortnite plot, it was a deviation while the Marvel heroes dealt with Galactus.

In Season 5, things picked back up again. We may have gotten more information in Chapter 2 Season 5 than we’ve had for the entirety of Fortnite’s lifespan. We’re at the point where we even think we’ve cracked the case of the Fortnite story.

In v15.40, Epic added some new NPC voice lines to the game that point to what many of us assumed: Season 5 will have a season-ending event that will relate to the Zero Point. Here’s what we learned after the most recent update.

New & leaked Fortnite voice lines

Several Fortnite characters have had their voice lines either updated or leaked. Lexa now has a specific voice line attached to her brother, Orin, which isn’t huge news in any way.

Some of the other leaked lines seem to relate to one of the skins that have yet to be released. Both Kondor and Ragnarok have a specific reaction to a particular skin, but that skin isn’t here yet.

The most interesting voice lines come from characters that are already in the game. Mancake, Deadfire, and Bunker Jonesy all have new voice lines when you approach them. The former two are located near the Zero Point and the latter has been the catalyst of many Season 5 theories.

Hypex, who released all of these voice lines, didn’t go into much detail about what these could mean for the future of Fortnite. If we had to guess, we’d say that they’re preparing us for a season-ending event.

The characters around the Zero Point are taking notice of some changes. At this point, we’d be surprised if the Zero Point didn’t destabilize and take us to another dimension – possibly the in-between from the Butterfly Event.

Only time will tell, but the end of Fortnite Season 5 is now a month away. Epic may be preparing us for something big

Rumors

Fortnite leaker suggests we could see a FNAF crossover

Fortnite data miner, Hypex, suggested that Five Nights at Freddy’s could be the next Gaming Legends crossover in Season 5.

Fortnite FNAF crossover

Fortnite Season 5 has introduced a laundry list of crossovers to the game. One Fortnite leaker thinks that Five Nights at Freddy’s could be next.

In Season 5, Epic brought several video game characters to the world of Fortnite. We saw Master Chief and Kratos hit the island shortly after the season released, and fans are wondering which characters we might see coming next.

The Gaming Legends series is brand new, so we assume that Epic will only be adding to it in the future. Some spooky files in Fortnite have led one data miner, Hypex, to suggest that we could see a crossover with the popular horror game Five Nights at Freddy’s.

The files in question are called “FrenchFry,” which is one codename given to skins that have yet to be released. These skins almost always begin with the first letter of each word. As Hypex notes in his video, the Ninja skin (Tyler Blevins) had the codename “TourBus.”

The files, strangely, relate to footsteps. There are seven different kinds of steps, which would suggest that a new mechanic could be on its way to Fortnite.

Could we see a haunted house of sorts, with references to the popular horror game? Only time will tell.

This theory seems like a bit of a stretch, but it certainly could happen. The popular FNAF skins would be a hit in Fortnite, but the timing feels a bit off.

An FNAF crossover seems like the type of thing that Epic would do during Halloween. It seems a bit out of place in the middle of February.

What do you think about this crossover? Let us know on Twitter @FortniteINTEL.
