Tfue revealed that he would be pursuing a lawsuit against the organization over the terms of his contract which he described as “oppressive” in order to start his own team which caused chaos in the esports community.
Ninja is one streamer who has experienced similar growth to Tfue, and noted that FaZe did play a massive part in boosting and developing the 21-year-old into the star attraction he is today.
The former Halo professional revealed he had noticed a new trend in Fortnite Battle Royale following the recent drama with FaZe – suggesting more people were adding 'Ninja' into their in-game tag.
Ninja was mocked by friend Benjamin ‘DrLupo’ Lupo who reminded him that he doesn’t own the name and Ninja responded with a playful jab at Tfue, referencing a viral meme.
“I just said I don’t own the name Ninja,” he responded. “You know what, call me ‘Tsue’ dude.
“He protec', he attac', but more importantly, he did not read contrac'.”
Eager to not fuel any further drama, Tfue refused to react to Ninja’s comments, stating that anyone can talk “shit” about him all they like.
He said: “I keep myself out of it [the drama]. People can talk shit about me all they want. I don’t mind.”
The two biggest Fortnite Battle Royale players have met plenty of times during their gaming careers, most recently during a World Cup qualifier, where Ninja came out on top.
With both players still vying for a World Cup qualification spot, it may not be too long before they meet on the battlefield again.
