CS:GO streamer joins a long list of high profile Twitch streamer to have weighed in on the debate, and he seems to be siding with the popular Fortnite Battle Royale professional player.

Irrespective of claims from FaZe Clan’s Ricky Banks, who suggested that the company has only taken $60,000 from Tfue since he first joined, Summit1g says that even if they don’t have bad intentions, there is still a legal issue with his contract that could harm him later down the line.

“It doesn’t matter,” Summit1g said, responding to suggestions from FaZe that Tfue has been keeping a large percentage of his earnings to-date. “The point is he has a contract signed so he can still get that taken from him later.”

“Brand deals featuring the gamer that exist on gamer or company’s content creation platforms or social media sites. If the deal is brought to the gamer by company, 20 percent to gamer, 80 percent to company. Don’t tell me it’s the other way,” he said, reading from an official statement from the organization.

“It is 80 percent company, 20 percent to Tfue. That’s how it’s written. That may not be their intentions, after he blew up, but if you’re in Tfue’s shoes you don’t take that chance right? You have to get out of that contract as quick as possible, now that you’re making millions of dollars.” 

FaZe Banks claimed that the organization had been trying to negotiate a new contract with the player for quite some time, during his reaction video, and Summit1g made it clear during the video above that he believes it would be in Tfue’s best interests to figure out a new deal, or – at the very least – “get the fuck out of that one.”

Summit1g isn’t the only streamer to have commented on the legal battle, by the way. Tyler ‘Ninja’ Blevins and Dr Disrespect have also given their take on the situation, with Ninja explaining that Tfue would never have been able to compete at events such as Daniel ‘KEEMSTAR’ Keem‘s Friday Fortnite tournaments, without being associated with FaZe. 

Dr Disrespect also offered to put Tfue in contact with “his people” to find a deal that suits him more than the one he is currently tied to with FaZe Clan. Whether or not anything will come from that offer in the future remains to be seen.

Among Us has become the game of choice for many top creators, with a party-game atmosphere and a great way to find out who your real friends are and test your own poker face.

In-Vent-Ational recap

Four separate lobbies filled to the brim with popular personalities battled it out during the event. Eventually, the best of the best moved on to the final showdown. This was where the most elite Among Us players showed their skills to the world. From extraordinary memory to map knowledge and of course, the ability to deceive everyone else, it all came in handy.

The likes of Ludwig, Classify, and Yassuo all made it through to the final round of action in the FaZe event. However, only one player could come away with the crown.

After a few maps of intense murder-sprees and subsequent investigations, it was up and coming Twitch streamer ‘Yetiapocalypse’ that closed out the victory. They soared to the top of the pack with a six-point lead over second place, well ahead of some of the bigger internet celebs in the lobby. The final placements can be found below.
