There is too much to cover over the past 10 years, that's why I decided to dumb this video down and just put some of FaZe's biggest milestones, their first trickshots, their competition wins, their house moves, and even their YT drama.
FaZe Sniping made its debut on YouTube on May 30, 2010. Originally, the group were a Call of Duty clan founded by three players, Eric "CLipZ" Rivera, Jeff "House Cat" Emann (now known as "Timid") and Ben "Resistance" Christensen. The trio garnered a reputation for innovating trickshotting. Trickshotting had existed in the past, but FaZe was one of the first to do it as a team. Their YouTube content took off when "Fakie" joined the clan. It was then when FaZe unveiled the most popular series on their channel, ILLCAMS. In 2014, Thomas "Temperrr" Oliveira, who was running a lot of FaZe's operations, had Richard 'Banks' Bengston move in with him. After that moment, FaZe's content creators incorporated lifestyle content with their gaming content.
In late 2018, FaZe Clan opened its series A funding round. From March to April 2019, three founding partners of marketing agency Cut + Sew, rappers Ray J and DJ Paul, and professional basketball players Meyers Leonard and Josh Hart invested in FaZe Clan,with the former basketballer later joining as a content creator under the nickname "Hammer". In August 2019 rapper Offset invested and joined the organization as a 2019, musicians Swae Lee, Yo Gotti, Pitbull, and Disco Fries, basketball players Ben Simmons and Jamal Murray, footballer Gregory van der Wiel, skateboarder Nyjah Huston, radio host Big Boy, music executives Sylvia Rhone, Troy Carter and Guy Oseary and actor Chris O'Donnell invested in FaZe Clan. In December 2019, FaZe Clan closed its series A round led by entrepreneur Jimmy Iovine and mobile e-commerce platform NTWRK. In January 2020, FaZe Clan obtained a $ million investment loan from Canaccord Genuity, a Canadian financial company.
