The Story of FaZe Banks

  • Published on Aug 17, 2019
  • Ricky Bengston wasn’t always FaZe Banks.
    In fact, when Banks started his career, FaZe were his competition. Like a lot of gamers who played first person shooters back in 2012, Banks was a trickshotter. And a damn good one at that.
    This is his story.

    unreal that i know faze for like 10 years … CoD Mw2 trickshotting was the old fortnite hype i watched every Montage countless times so good memories. i really feel Banks is a genuine guy who just wants to create and have fun he really represents the faze Lifestyle

    also nadeshot shouldnt be commenting on fazes situation with tfue, hes made his own mess with nick mercs.. shit like that is part of doing business. people are going to have differing opinions and unless your directly involved you should probably just mind your own.

    CoD highlights are so boring- it’s nearly impossible to tell what is going on- no wonder nearly no one cared. If I had to make a phrase to describe Banks that’s more creative than calling him a Vinny, it would be calling it the dumb-core movement. Not being afraid of being very openly dumb becomes charming I guess.

    tfue once put infront of a camera, made himself, skill charisma. That was bound to happen either way. And Faze does all this because their softies, ofc the aim is money.

      @DylanAffiliate well, that can be debated, for sure only they know, Tfue joined like end april 2018, so its not like it was "the good old days", I think, its a bit naive to think money was no object and I think fazes countersuit shows that there was intent to earn on him as a brand, if u know what they suing for, it make sense . But do I really care ? Does it affect my day to day dealings with fellow earthlings, not really and not a bit. Just bored banter :p have a good one bro

    even theescore esports agrees FaZe made Tfue. I like Tfue, i've been watching him since S3 of Fortnite, but facts are facts.

      xRe Hex It’s just not true- the Faze drama had literally zero impact on anything. What “team” people are on for Fortnite has become nearly irrelevant. Nobody cares.

    Faze will and always be the 12 year old kid to the optic gaming 20 year old.The only person in Faze that i liked was Kross because he wasn't into trick shotting or basically ruining peoples experience of a game for montage clips.
