This Lawsuit Could Change eSports Forever – Tfue v. FaZe Clan (Real Law Review) // LegalEagle financial modeling esports

by Dragonspear



One of the biggest gamers sues one of the biggest eSports teams. Who is right? Who is the bad guy? Will it change eSports forever? Legal Eagles get 2 months of unlimited learning on SKILLSHARE for FREE:

Tfue, one of the biggest gamers on the planet, accuses FaZe Clan of an oppressive contract and pure exploitation. FaZe Clan fires back that Tfue is making things up to get out of the contract so he can start his own eSports company. Tfue not only files suit in Los Angeles, but also filed a petition with the California Labor Commission, arguing that FaZe Clan should be regulated like a talent agency. The outcome of that petition could have wide ranging implications for all of eSports.

Who will win the lawsuit?

Who is right?

So for anyone wanting an update: Faze did countersue in New York.

A California judge dismissed Tfue's suit.

They settled before going to trial, the terms of which were not released.

Sounds to me like Tfue didn't actually have a case after all and Faze was the one acting in good faith, though that original contract does seem onerous.

With zero legal background whatsoever, I’d rule with FaZe Clan. He signed a contract, they showed due diligence and willingness to renegotiate. On paper I’d support FaZe.

If I was a competing company, I wouldn’t touch TFue because of his conduct under one contract. As far as the “pressure to drink and gamble.” I doubt that officials from Faze were the ones pressuring, likely team mates, and it probably didn’t take that much

I don’t like Fortnite really and I’m glad I didn’t get into it because it seems rather teeth grindingly cringy to me, and if you are not being unbearable then you are being extremely toxic as you are bullying teammates because they were not good enough, or at least that’s how it is with some competitive people

Considering the statement Faze Clan made about what they received and exercised of the contract by their own admission they have failed to enforce the contract. I can't remember the legal term for when a party fails to enforce the contract and that becomes the expected. It can make the contract unenforceable.

I think sports players should be held to their contracts. Look at Marshawn Lynch. Great player but breached his contract just because he could, and because the team needed him. He wouldn't talk at press meetings, or do many other things he promised to do if they paid him. He accepted the money and Super Bowl or not, he should have been made to honor his contract. People like him set a terrible example.

FaZe clan encourages the use of cheats and hacks by its members. It is named after a popular piece of game hacking software. They should be banned from all competitive play.

Objection! 12:16 Before and after picture is inaccurate. Those pictures are two different people, one of them being Jack Tenney of the Youtube channel Joogsquad (Tfue's brother) and the other of being of Tfue himself. Those are not before and after pictures.

He signed a contract when he was a nobody, you can't backtrack later. It defeats the purpose of a contract. Don't sign something you don't understand, it's always foolish and that you don't intend to follow. He should lose this and I hope he does. Remember the days when your word had power, if someone said they would do something they would no excuses. . It's sad you can't trust anyone these days

Personally I did not realise he has any basis to argue a case as long as he was paid whatever the min wage is, he has the freedom to sign or not sign the contract

Players are quick to accept help from orgs when they are trying to make it…And as soon as they make a little name for themselves it's like "screw this org"…The contract wasn't so bad when he needed it, huh? And don't give me that "I didn't know what I was doing" bulls…Bottom line is, orgs invest their money and take ALL the risk, while players take no risk at all and find a way to complain…A..holes

I don't find him entertaining, but I can see categorizing PewDiePie as an entertainer. For a competitive game like Fortnite (don't care about it either), why wouldn't its players be treated the same as physical athletes? Just as a sportsball player signs on to a sports team, a clickshoot player signs on to an esports team. Makes sense to me.
