Sponsorships & Brand Deals

Streamers often get paid by brands to promote products (apparel, peripherals, drinks, video games, etc).

Sponsorships and Brand Deals were the driving force in Tfue’s 2019 lawsuit with Faze Clan in which he stated they keep 80% of these earnings.

Sponsorships can be a very good earner for streamers but are hard to track and estimate which is why we never include them when we estimate a streamers’ monthly earnings.

How did Tfue get started?

  • In 2015, inspired by his brother’s YouTube channel, Tfue decided to make his own YouTube channel where he would post videogame gameplay. That same year, Tfue also started streaming Destiny on Twitch, a game he became very good at.
  • Games like H1Z1 and later PUBG allowed Tfue to show the world a glimpse of what was to come
  • When Fortnite came around in late 2017, Tfue was already a Battle Royale veteran and showed the world what he was truly capable of. By May of 2018, he was streaming to an average viewer base of 10,000 viewers.
  • Once Tfue signed with Faze in 2018, his stream blew up and his viewer base tripled almost overnight.
  • Tfue would team up with Cloakzy and become a lethal duo in competitive Fortnite, with the duo taking home over half a million dollars in tournament earnings.
  • By July of 2020, Tfue got tired of streaming Fortnite and instead spend most of his time playing Call of Duty Warzone. He also played some Among Us and Fall Guys.
  • In 2021, Tfue streamed Minecraft, Warzone and Apex Legends to an average 12,751 viewers on Twitch.
  • Today, Tfue still averages 9,500 viewers on his Twitch Streams but this is a stark decline from the Fortnite glory days (2019) where he would reach 45,054 average viewers on Twitch. Consistently putting him at the very top of the Twitch leaderboards in terms of viewers, and subscribers.

What happened between Faze Clan and Tfue?

In May of 2019, Tenney filed a lawsuit against Faze Clan claiming that the org withheld his share of brand deal revenue as well as undercut his earnings from streaming and tournaments.

Part of the suit was that Tfue wanted to be released from his contract with Faze Clan as they allegedly weren’t holding up their end of the bargain.

The lawsuit stated that Faze Clan was entitled to up to 80% of the third-party endorsements that happened in Tfue’s name.

This caused outrage online as other content creators falsely believed this meant that Faze Clan could lay claim to 80% of Tfue’s earnings from Twitch, Youtube, Tournaments, and everything else.

However, this wasn’t true. Faze Clan was only entitled to 80% of the earnings from brand deals that were brokered through Faze.

Faze later countersued Tfue for violating his contract.

In August of 2020, Faze and Tfue settled and released the following statement:

“FaZe Clan and Turner Tenney are pleased to announce that they have resolved their disputes and settled their litigations,” a spokesperson said. “The parties wish one another the best of luck in future endeavors.”

No information about the settlement has been revealed other than that Tfue was released from his Faze Clan contract.

Why is Tfue’s viewership in decline?

Tfue is still a massively popular Twitch Streamer and YouTuber. He gets 3.6 million video views per month on his YouTube channel and streams to nearly 10k viewers on Twitch whenever he goes live.

However, there has been a stark decline in Tfue’s viewer base.

This decline has to do with many different reasons. One of which is that Tfue stopped streaming Fortnite, the game that originally made him so famous.

On the 25th episode of the Brand Risk Podcast, Tfue went on to say that he had milked Fortnite for all it’s worth. It didn’t bring him joy anymore and he felt like he was streaming Fortnite solely for viewers and career purposes which he didn’t care about anymore.

By July of 2020, Tfue stopped streaming Fortnite and instead played Call of Duty Warzone, Fall guys, and Among us. During this time, his viewership took quite a hit and most streams had between 12-20k viewers.

Then on December 13th, he streamed Fortnite to 42,829 viewers. Doubling the audience that came to his Warzone streams. He clearly had a loyal viewer base but many of his fans simply still preferred Fortnite.

But that’s not the only reason his viewership was in decline. Tfue was widely popular at the peak of Fortnite, but Fortnite wasn’t going to stay the most popular game.

Even if Tfue had continued to stream Fortnite for the viewers, he would have likely seen a dip as the Fortnite craze was declining and the competition was getting tough with new Fortnite pros popping up from nowhere.

I think Tfue is currently at a healthy viewership on Twitch where he can stream whatever he wants and thousands of viewers will still show up.
