Saf, a veteran Fortnite player, claims that collapsed esports firm TrainHard Esport owes him a huge quantity of money.
Rocco “Saf” Morales, a competitive Fortnite player, is one of the most distinguished competitors in the game’s nearly five-year history. He’s done more than most people would think, including finishing fourth in the inaugural Fortnite World Cup and winning the Chapter 2 Season 2 Fortnite Champion Series. Over the years, esports organizations such as Ghost Gaming and TSM have shown interest in Saf’s abilities.
Saf’s most recent venture took place between March and June of 2021, when he was a member of the “TrainHard Esport” brand situated in France. The group was forced to shut in June due to “financial constraints.” Saf, on the other hand, claims in a recent Twitter post that TrainH owes him $70,000 USD.
“TrainHard” still owes me 70k

Since TrainH Esport closed its doors, the winner of the 2019 ESL Katowice Royale has been a free agent. Saf issued an official statement on Twitter concerning money he claims the organization owes him:
“… So, approximately 8 months ago, I inked a 10k 5% deal with trainH. TrainH owes me almost $70,000 and I have yet to receive a single payment. Managers lied to him, stating things like “the money is on its way” or “sure, it will take longer because of the holiday,” he wrote.
“Unfortunately, I was naive enough to believe them, and they abruptly ceased operations and lost contact with me.” Since the incident, no CEO or higher-up has said anything to me. I’m not sure what else I can do at this time except make this public and wait for FR attorneys to respond.”
Following a six-month stay with TSM—who had taken a break from Fortnite—Saf joined the French esports brand. According to Saf’s statement, TrainH Esport was supposed to pay him $70K USD, but he has yet to receive it. The corporation cut ties with the 19-year-old Fortnite sensation recently, leaving him with few options.
OTHER PLAYERS AFFLICTED & RADIO SILENCE

Matsoe, a former TrainH member and European professional player, said he had not received full payment from the now-defunct esports organization. TrainHard Esport no longer has a social media presence, which is unfortunate for all individuals affected. Saf has stated that he will file a lawsuit for breach of contract. We’ll have to wait and see what happens in the future.
