While the reason for the hostility between FaZe’s newest member and Nadeshot remained under wraps to begin with, Drama Alert host Daniel ‘KEEMSTAR’ Keem revealed that Nadeshot had offered NICKMERCS 5% of 100 Thieves but “didn’t pay up,” a claim that NICKMERCS backed stating: “Ain’t no rumor home. Is what it is.”

While Nadeshot has stated that he won’t be addressing the issue between himself and NICKMERCS publicly, it hasn’t stopped the professional Fortnite player from airing his grievances against 100 Thieves and founder Nadeshot, taking another swipe at him in his first Twitch stream as a FaZe Clan member.

After informing his teammates that he was short on materials, NICKMERCS received an offer to share NioRooch’s loot in a 50/50 split, with Kolcheff turning it down and saying: “Let’s do 95/5.”

“Let me get 95%, you get 5%. You cool with that or what?”

NioRooch replied: “Um, yeah. I mean, fuck it. I get 5% though, right?”

NICKMERCS then immediately referenced his issue with 100 Thieves, saying: “Yeah, I mean, we’ll take the materials, we’ll divide them up, but then a little bit down the road it might change a little bit, you know. Word bro. Appreciate that trust. That’s what good friends do, they trust each other.”

NICKMERCS is one of the most popular Fortnite Battle Royale streamers in the world, and joins FaZe as a huge creator in his own right as the organization face the prospect of losing their biggest star Turner ‘Tfue’ Tenney, who is currently suing to get out of his contract.

FaZe Clan’s Fortnite Battle Royale team will be back in action this week, as players attempt to secure their spot at the Fortnite World Cup in Week 8 of qualifying, which kicks off on Saturday, June 1.

Popular League of Legends streamer Robert ‘Hashinshin’ Brotz has claimed the FBI investigated him over allegations he was sexually harassing minors, and cleared him of any wrongdoing. He was permanently banned on Twitch over the claims.

Hashinshin was ostracized from the League of Legends community back in July, after claims the 30-year-old Twitch streamer sexually harassed underage girls by abusing his platform of power.

Other popular content creators, like Joedat ‘Voyboy’ Esfahani, stated that “Hashinshin is a manipular, predator, and worst of all [a] pedophile who used his platform to abuse so many underage girls over the years.”

However, the disgraced streamer has claimed he was investigated by the FBI and cleared of all wrongdoing.

“There has been an FBI investigation into me, and I have neither been jailed or charged with a crime. Some of you might not believe that. I have a freedom of information request [to prove my innocence publicly], but that can take up to a year,” Brotz said in a October 7 statement.

Numerous women came forward stories in July of Hashinshin grooming them while they were underage. However, Hashinshin has always maintained his innocence, claiming these stories were false, and that many of those who came forward have since deleted their statements.

He also stated that he was potentially looking into suing some of the alleged victims for defamation, stating they did a “public assessment of [his] character” that distorted what people thought of him.

“I was going to sue Alli for defamation ⁠— and I probably should have ⁠— but Alli is not a victim, and people started getting these really distorted views on what was happening,” he said, referring to one of the victims.

“Things aren’t as they seem, regardless of what they seem. I’m not a rich and powerful figure. They didn’t find that I did anything. I think a lot of this was a public assessment of my character, and a lot of people did this because they didn’t like me.

“I’ve been working on bettering myself over the last two years, and I think I’ve become a better person overall. It hurts a lot…to see all these people denying that.”

Brotz claimed that while he believed his accusers weren’t “all terrible people,” they betrayed his trust. He also said that while he believes they should apologize, he hopes no one in the community attacks them. He just wants to “go back to living a normal life.”

“I thought these were nice people, I thought I could trust them and work with them. That’s why my response to this was all sh*tty because I shouldn’t really have trusted anyone. I don’t think they’re all terrible people, but things really escalated,” he said.

“I don’t want anyone to attack them. I just want to go back to living a normal life. I just want to exist peacefully, and I hope people can start letting me do that. I hope this can change their minds in some way.”

Hashinshin remains permanently banned on Twitch despite his attempts to clear this name. He has also lost his Twitch partnership, and has instead moved to streaming on YouTube.
