Fortnite Pro Player Sues His Team FaZe Clan Over Taking Up 80% Earnings

Tfue sues his team Faze Clan over not paying him a fair share of earnings.

Turner Tenney, as widely known as 'Tfue', is one of the top professional Fortnite gamers at this time. Recently, the 21-year-old guy is accusing his team, Faze Clan, for a contract that he considered as oppressive, onerous, and one-sided.

To put it briefly, the guy believes this contract is allegedly restricting his business opportunities. As per the lawsuit filed against his professional team - Faze Clan, the gaming house was accused of violating the California law as well as the Talent Agency Act because of allegedly limiting Tfue to pursue his professional career. In addition, the lawsuit he filed did accuse his gaming-house company to not pay him a fair share from his overall earnings. According to the filing, Tfue claimed 80 percent of his sponsorship earnings was charged as a “finder’s fee”.

Meanwhile, in a post tweeted on Monday, Faze Clan said it was shocked and disappointed because of the lawsuit. Citing the data compiled since the partnership with Tfue was made in April 2018, the company has earned nearly zero of dollars from tournament winnings or revenues any social platforms like Twitch and YouTube as well. However, the gaming house has not made any comment for a request so far.

The free-to-play console game Fortnite has stormed the gamer community since its first roll-out last year. Fortnite was said to bring $3 billion in revenues for the game developer Epic Games in 2018, thanks to the massive phenomenon. As a result, professional gamers also gain benefits from it. In an interview with CNN earlier this year, Tyler Blevins (aka Ninja) disclosed that he took roughly $10 million last year from the game. Note that his Twitch channel and YouTube channel now are having more than 12 million and 20 million followers respectively.
