According to multiple sources, Turner “Tfue” Tenney has plans to make his own organization once he is out of FaZe Clan. So far, this story has had a plethora of twists and turns. However, now that Tfue’s contract is likely being released, the situation is going to get even murkier.
With both sides claiming the other is wrong, this likely won’t come to a happy conclusion. Many in the community believe FaZe wouldn’t engage in the activities Tfue is accusing them of. However, there are reports that the contract between Tfue and FaZe shows the streamer is in the right.
So while all of this happening, Tfue is apparently already making other plans. Knowing he will almost certainly be released from FaZe, the mega Twitch streamer has an idea that will ensure he doesn’t go through this drama again.
While Tfue no doubt wanted to get out of his contract with FaZe for monetary and fairness reasons, it appears he also had motives beyond that. If he does, in fact, create his own organization, he will have the freedom to work with any brand without FaZe getting in the way.
Another huge reason for this decision, according to Tfue and his brother, is Tfue wants other esports players stuck in bad contracts to have a way out. Tfue believes that he will set the precedent for what happens if an organization signs a player to an unfair contract.
Whether or not all that is true or not remains to be seen. Tfue could just want out of his contract to pursue other opportunities. Or, he could be telling the truth and really want to be a spearhead for the community.
FaZe Clan is planning to release Tfue’s contract and other dealings later today. There are reports that this contract looks horribly bad for FaZe, but there are some exceptions to that.
Later today, all will be explained by FaZe on “DramaAlert.” Hopefully, some answers will come out of the statement FaZe makes and the two sides can work towards being civil.
FaZe is planning on making a 5 min or less official video statement on #DramaAlert today 5pm est!

Regardless, it looks like Tfue will get his wish and be released from this contract. Right now, it’s likely best for both parties to mutually part ways rather than deal with this dispute in court. However, if FaZe continues to believe they are in the right, this situation could get bloody extremely fast.
