FaZe Clan owner Ricky ‘Banks’ Banks had a very public falling out with Fortnite pro Turner ‘Tfue’ Tenney in 2019 – but has now explained how NFL great Tom Brady helped the two reunite.

As a lifelong New England Patriots fan, Banks has made no secret of the fact that Brady is his idol in life, even suggesting that he would do some unsavory things to the six-time Super Bowl champion as a sign of gratitude.

So, despite the dominant quarterback’s move to the Tampa Bay Buccaneers in March 2020, Banks still has a lot of love for the man – and Tfue decided to put aside their differences thanks to Brady.

Tfue’s ‘Release the Contract’ video, slamming his FaZe Clan contract, went viral.

Appearing in an episode of Impaulsive co-host Mike Majlak’s ‘The Night Shift’, in which he showed off the new FaZe house, Banks described what went down between the three of them.

After revealing that he and Tfue played Fortnite with Brady’s son, Banks added that he got to have a conversation with the man himself, saying: “Turner reached out, because he’s from Tampa… solid move on Tfue’s part [because] obviously we’ve got some sh*t up in the air.

“But he knows my love for the Patriots and Tom Brady. He FaceTimed me and I was like, ‘what the f**k could this be about?’ and he says: ‘Yo, I’m about to be talking to Tom Brady, hop on Fortnite’.”

Banks even added that it wasn’t “bittersweet” because of Brady signing for the Bucs – in fact, if it wasn’t for that, Tampa-native Tfue may never have had the chance to connect with Brady at all.

As Banks says, this is a solid move on Tfue’s part, knowing how much he loves Brady and putting aside their differences to help him meet his idol.

It suggests that, despite ongoing lawsuits between Tfue and FaZe Clan, there’s still a bit of love between the two, and Tom Brady might just be the man to bring them back together.

Twitch streamer Quin69’s viewers can literally flashbang him by donating

A Twitch streamer has found a way to let his viewers flashbang him in real life — and it looks absolutely hilarious.

As streaming grows, it becomes increasingly harder for aspiring creators to really stand out among their peers, and you’ll often see that some of the top streamers have something unique about them, or their stream, that keeps viewers coming back for more.

The best example of this is someone like Dr Disrespect, who adopts the Doc persona whenever he goes live and feeds into the character, offering fans something a little more unique.

So, to stand out among the crowd, you need something original — and Quin69 might have found the best solution.

Quin69 keeps up a spirited stream for his viewers, and this flashbang feature only adds to it.

While streamers often take donations from fans who are looking to show support, Quin has given his viewers a little something extra.

That’s because if you donate a certain amount to Quin’s stream, you hear the call of “throwing flashbang” before the room goes bright white, with Quin forced to close his eyes or squint through the flash if he wants to continue playing.

As you can see below, it doesn’t look like a massively enjoyable experience for the streamer, who has to sit through the pain; but it definitely looks amusing for the viewer.

He clearly tries to shrug it off and acts as though it doesn’t bother him, but we can only imagine how often his viewers flashbang him while in an intense moment of whatever game he’s playing which, truthfully, makes it all the more funny.

For a good example, here’s him being flashed while in a boss fight on Path of Exile, at the worst possible moment.

Of course, it’s all fun and games, and Quin wouldn’t have the option there if it truly bothered him, but we can only imagine how many games he loses momentum in thanks to temporary blindness.
