Nick ‘NICKMERCS’ Kolcheff, the FaZe Clan streamer, hit four million followers last night. It came as the streamer won the Toronto Ultra Warzone tournament alongside Gregory ‘Biffle’ Biffle and FaZe Clan teammate Chris ‘Swagg’ Lamberson, taking home the $100,000 prize.
NICKMERCS is now the 13th most followed streamer on the platform, having risen to prominence through playing Fortnite, once holding the world record for most kills in a Fortnite squad match, with 54. While NICKMERCS is still prominent on the Fortnite scene, he has since switched his focus to Call of Duty: Warzone, which has helped give him another boost of popularity.
NICKMERCS has been a streamer under the FaZe Clan banner since May 2019, and is one of their most popular stars. Though he doesn’t compete on any of their successful esports team, he’s an invaluable cog in their esports machine, and will be looking to build on this threshold and crack the Twitch top ten some time in the near future.
NICKMERCS himself is yet to comment on passing this milestone, having instead taken to Twitter to celebrate his Toronto Ultra win. Tyler ‘Ninja’ Blevins remains the most followed star on the platform, having streamed for the first time in over a year this week. He sits at over 14 million followers, while second placed Turner ‘Tfue’ Tenney has almost 9 million. Michael ‘Shroud’ Grzesiek (who, like Ninja, is yet to decide his future), is in third place with 7 million.
It’s likely that in the next few days, NICKMERCS will thank his followers for the support, while other streamers will in turn congratulate him. That’s what happened when Imane ‘Pokimane’ Anys crossed the five million follower threshold previously.
Other notable streamers, such as Benjamin ‘DrLupo’ Lupo, Mason ‘Symfuhny’ Lanier, and Tyler ‘TeePee’ Polchow also participated in the Toronto Ultra tournament alongside NICKMERCS.
