According to new data, Twitch streamer is Nick “Nickmercs” Kolcheff had one of the most successful years ever on the platform. In 2021, he was in the top 10 Twitch streamers for watch hours for Call of Duty: Warzone, Apex Legends and Fortnite.
The data was published in graphical form by a Twitter user by the name @FoxEyeFN. Nickmercs was the 10th most popular Fortnite Twitch streamer, the second most popular Apex Legends streamer, and the first most watched Warzone streamer Sullygnome.com. However, this only applies to English-speaking streamers. If other languages are taken into account, given his authority on both titles, he would still be in the top 10 Apex Legends and Warzone streamers.

Nickmercs responded on the graph by saying “Lil triple double on em” which refers to the basketball stats awarded to a player who publishes double-digit stats in three different areas.
In October 2021, the battle royale streamer signed an exclusive streaming contract with Amazon’s own platform. Since then, Nickmercs has maintained a dominant authority on Twitch, consistently attracting tens of thousands of viewers.
This viewership doesn’t change based on the game the streamer is playing as the graphic above shows. Nickmercs decided to start playing Apex Legends in 2021, a game he had only tried his hand at before. After the cheating and gameplay issues in Warzone and Fortnite worsened in the second half of 2021, Nickmercs has decided to make Apex Legends their full-time game. Occasionally, however, it returns to Warzone or Fortnite, where it can sometimes attract even more viewers.
If one thing is clear, that MFAM, Nickmercs’ fan base, is one of the strongest of any streaming platform.
