Dennis “Cloak” Lepore has given his side of the growing controversy surrounding Turner “Tfue” Tenney’s lawsuit against FaZe Clan. Aside from being Tfue’s static partner in Fortnite World Cup duos, Cloak is the captain of FaZe Clan’s Fortnite team.
In a Twitlonger, Cloak detailed his personal history with Tfue, praising Tfue’s natural talent in first-person shooter titles. “Me and tfue had insane synergy and I felt more comfortable playing with him than I have any player in my battle royale experience,” wrote the popular streamer.
Cloak went on to confirm that he and Tfue would still be duoing for the Fortnite World Cup, despite Tfue’s legal attack against FaZe. “Me and tfue are still going to be a duo, we are still going to qualify and win the world cup move in together and take this streaming thing to the next level,” said Cloak.

In spite of Cloak’s praise for Tfue and reaffirmation of their friendship, his Twitlonger also included a vehement defense of FaZe Clan.
“Banks shouldn’t be getting hate for anything and you’re all braindead if you think he has anything to do with anything bad that has happened,” wrote Cloak.
However, his statement noticeably avoided discussions of the specific percent allocations of earnings and prize money specified by his contract. “Can’t talk about % ‘s against contract sry,” he added in a postscript.
Tfue and Cloak are a powerful duo indeed, boasting impressive synergy backed by a strong real-life friendship. But as Ricky Banks’ emotional video last night made clear, Tfue may never be able to repair his relationship with FaZe following his legal attack. At the moment, the long-term prospects of Tfue and Cloak’s static duo remain up in the air.
