Here are the numbers.

Faze Clan's recent reboot has welcomed a new member on board, plaqueboymax. He is the second of four new members that will represent a new era of Faze. However, his addition saw mixed responses which even led to the CEO of Faze Clan defending the new member.

Some fans argued that Kalei, who was recently kicked from Faze, has better or similar viewership to plaqueboymax. This made people wonder if Kalei's removal from Faze is justified.

A messy discourse, Faze CEO responds

Viewership-wise, plaqueboymax has the obvious upper-hand. But what does the co-owner of Faze Clan has to say about the massive shuffle?

F*ck everything else, f*ck the numbers. Kalei, Warzone, whatever.

Following the online heat regarding former Faze's Kalei vs plaqueboymax and their viewership, Faze Banks posted a video to clarify his plans. He also expressed that he doesn't care about viewership or numbers.

Faze Banks revealed that he had been spending a lot of time with plaqueboymax, even more than some of the Faze members, and that friendship makes a good foundation for the organization. "At the end of the day, I know that first step of establishing some sort of sense of comradery and friendship, and just even actually talking to people who share the name Faze, that's what we have to figure out first. So f*ck everything else, f*ck the numbers. Kalei, Warzone, whatever."

After GameSquare's acquisition, Faze Clan underwent a massive reboot. Read more about the Faze layoffs and who are out of the team below.
