Tfue allegations about underage streamer ‘FaZe H1ghSky1’ reportedly confirmed

Published

on

Reports appear to have confirmed that FaZe Clan Fortnite Battle Royale player and streamer H1ghSky1 is in fact under the age of 13.

H1ghSky1 joined FaZe Clan on March 22, 2019, at which point FaZe claim he was 13 years old. According to a report by Upcomer, however, the player was only 11 at that time.

The Upcomer report states that posts by H1ghSky1’s family in 2012 refer to his fifth birthday, while another post from the same year refers to him as being five years old. These posts would suggest H1ghSky1 was a month short of his 12th birthday when he signed with FaZe.

The subject of H1ghSky1’s true age surfaced as part of Turner ‘Tfue’ Tenney’s lawsuit against the organization, which alleged that the player was only 11 at the time of joining and that FaZe Clan had pressured he and his family to lie about his age, which FaZe claimed was 13.

This signing is alleged by the lawsuit to be in violation of California Labor Code section 1700.36, which states that “no talent agency shall accept any application for employment made by or on behalf of any minor”.

Outside of the ongoing lawsuit, however, H1ghSky1’s age could have additional consequences. Participating in Epic Games-sanctioned Fortnite Battle Royale events has a minimum age requirement of 13 years old, as does streaming on YouTube or becoming a Twitch partner.

Should those platforms also determine H1ghSky1 to be under the age of 13, it could spell the end of any Fortnite World Cup ambitions – although he is not currently qualified for the event – as well as threaten his Twitch channel, which currently has over 400,000 followers.

FaZe Clan vs Tfue

The revelation comes as another blow against FaZe Clan in the battle of public perception surrounding their ongoing legal dispute.

The lawsuit primarily alleges that Tfue’s own contract is “oppressive”, with claims that FaZe Clan have the right to claim up to 80% of revenue from brand deals apparently proven correct after the contract was leaked.

However, the lawsuit also attacks FaZe on a number of other fronts, including the signing of H1ghSky1 as well as allegedly jeopardizing the health, safety, and welfare of its members.

FaZe and H1ghSky1 have yet to respond to the allegations.

Chapter 3 Season 2 Live Event: Everything we know so far

Published

By

The first live event of Chapter 3 is expected to take place in less than six weeks. Here’s everything we know so far, based on various leaks.

Leaked Map Stages

All future stages for the territories controlled by both The Seven and Imagined Order have been leaked by data-miner Hypex. The maps show the Resistance will retake control of most of the Island, leaving only Command Cavern and Loot Lake for the IO. The final stage will lead the story directly into a live event, with the Imagined Order having little options left for victory.

Leaked Quest Voice Line

Epic also recently added new voice lines for the upcoming Week 6 Quests which, when reviewed closely, appear to tease the main story of a new live event. The Agent Jones character claims “one of the IO’s Doomsday devices is now in production”, seemingly hinting that the new event could be related to Chapter 2 Season 2’s The Device, which was also focused around a “Doomsday Device”.

A transcript of the Agent Jones voice lines can be found below:

“This will not come as a surprise, but IO management loves Doomsday machines – loves them! There’s even a doomsday division at HQ, oh man their softball team is awful but they will one day destroy us all so… kind of a wash. We have very credible intel that one of the IO’s Doomsday devices is now in production. We need to find out everything we can while we still can. Hit the field, I’ll prep the cameras . . . I have a very bad feeling that we are not ready for what we’re gonna find out.”

Doomsday Landmark

According to Fortnite data-miner GMatrixGames, a new Landmark code-named ‘DDMachine’ has been added to the game’s tags, suggesting that the Doomsday Device described by Agent Jones could be added to the map in the future.

Less than six weeks remain until the potential live event. We’ll keep you updated with the latest leaks and official announcements.

By

In preparation for the upcoming item vote, the Boogie Bomb and Rift-To-Go have both been unvaulted for a trial period until April 25.

Players can now find the items scattered throughout the Island from Chests, Llamas, Supply Drops, Loot Sharks and ground loot. Once the short trial period ends on April 25 at 8AM ET, new gold funding stations will go live in-game on the following day to let players “fund” the item they want to see return permanently (for the rest of Season 2). The item that becomes 100% funded first will automatically be reintroduced to the loot pool as soon as the goal, of which the exact value is unknown, is reached.

We’ll keep you updated on which item gets unvaulted.
