Despite some controversies towards the end of his contract, Tfue’s talent as a gamer was already highly regarded.
Currently, Tfue is not part of any esports organization as he prefers to be independent and play what he loves without restrictions. He continues to stream on Twitch, attracting an average of 9,069 viewers per live stream.
In 2018, shortly after his rise in Fortnite, Tfue’s account was permanently banned by Epic Games for allegedly selling accounts and rare skins in violation of their terms. In the same year, he faced accusations of inappropriate behavior involving a racial slur directed at a smaller streamer.
In 2019, the Tfue vs FaZe Clan dispute took place, resulting in a 15-month legal battle before the proceedings were settled. Despite the negative feedback, Tfue still received support from his fans and gained many subscribers along the way. In 2020, his long-standing dispute with FaZe Clan was finally resolved.
One of Tfue’s notable victories was in the 2018 Fortnite Fall Skirmish Grand Finals, where he became a world champion in both the Solo and Duo categories. He is considered one of the best Fortnite players alongside Tyler ‘Ninja’ Blevins.
