Ricky ‘Fortnite Battle Royale star was suing FaZe Clan over his contract.

The reports that Tfue had filed legal proceedings against the organization he represents sent the internet into overdrive, as Tfue stating that FaZe take 80% of revenue from branded videos on his social media channels, and that the organization is jeopardizing the health, safety and welfare of its members.

In response to the suit, FaZe founder Banks has appeared on Daniel ‘KEEMSTAR’ Keem’s Drama Alert to share his side of the story, and also released a video of his own titled “Dear Tfue” to address the claims made by the Fortnite pro player, and to reveal the emotional toll the lawsuit is having on him.

Instagram: BanksBanks has spoken about the lawsuit that Tfue has brought against FaZe Clan.

FaZe Banks “heartbroken”by Tfue lawsuit, won’t forgive him

In an emotional video from FaZe Banks, the founder of the legendary esports organization stated that he knew the lawsuit “wasn’t aimed” at him, but he is crushed by the situation, and doesn’t think he’ll ever be able to forgive Tfue.

“I thought we were friends. I called you family. I know this isn’t aimed at me,” an emotional Banks told Tfue. “But this is me. I know I am the last person you meant to hurt by this, but you hurt me more than fucking anyone has, ever.

“FaZe Clan has changed so many people’s lives, and you just spit on it and stomped on it. You took everything you could from it, you sucked it clean of everything you could get from it, and then you threw it in the trash, and how dare you.

“I’ve never been done this dirty by a homie. A homie that I helped, a homie that I changed their whole fucking life.

“I’ll never forgive you for this homie. Never.”

FaZe Banks disputes Tfue’s claims

Throughout both his interview with KEEMSTAR and his public address to Tfue, Banks disputed a number of claims made in the lawsuit brought by Tfue, stating that FaZe Clan don’t take 80% of his revenue, and have only ever made $60,000 from their partnership with the Twitch star.

Banks also used a number of clips to fire back at other claims made by Tfue, including shots of the streamer attempting to convince Alex ‘Adapt’ Pinkevich to jump off of a reservoir in California, using this to hit back at the idea that he was forced to perform dangerous stunts.

Since news of the lawsuit becoming public, Tfue has refrained from releasing a statement addressing the controversy, but it’s seems almost certain that fans of the streamer and the organization have not heard the last of this situation.

New Twitch streamer NickCKelly got emotional on stream when he got his first viewers after waiting for nearly an hour, gaining thousands as followers as a result of his wholesome reaction.

2020 was a booming year for Twitch, with top creators like xQc and Valkyrae achieving huge numbers in terms of followers and views, and several gaming trends surging in popularity at various points in the year, meaning success all around.

With these huge creators out here smashing records, it’s easy to forget that many are only just starting out their venture into streaming, both casually and seriously.

This year has no doubt prompted more people than ever before to give streaming a try, but it’s not as easy as it might seem from the outside – especially if you’re starting from zero.

2020 helped Twitch do massive numbers all round.

NickCKelly was one such individual who wanted to give streaming a go, and he couldn’t have been more grateful when he eventually got his first viewers after a while on stream by himself.

He had been streaming for almost an hour when he noticed that some viewers had joined his previously empty chat, and he looked stunned.

“I have my first viewer, hi!” Nick said, looking taken aback by the sudden appearance. “Wow, this is amazing. I’m genuinely honored to have you in my stream, you’re my first viewer that I’ve had, I’ve been streaming for 48 minutes.”

“I feel like I’m gonna cry, man,” he said with the most wholesome reaction possible, tearing up as he spoke to his new viewers.

Over on Reddit, user Avoxio who found Nick’s stream explained why they entered his empty stream. “Me and some friends were scrolling through twitch and found this guy. His stream title got us intrigued so we decided to stop by.”

They also said “at first we thought he was trolling so we messed around a bit not thinking anything of it, throughout our conversation we realized that he was being genuine,” and said they decided to share his stream in hopes of getting him recognition.

Nick also responded in the comments: “I will not let you all down. I want to prove to people that there is goodness in the world, and that we are capable of so much more than most think. I think there’s so much pain and suffering in the world right now. Helping even a single person is making a difference in the world.”

The unexpected reaction from the small streamer certainly seemed to strike a chord with some viewers, and Nick has now shot up to 4.7 thousand followers at the time of writing.
