Nick "NICKMERCS" Kolcheff has risen to success following the release of the free-to-play battle royale, Call of Duty: Warzone, with FaZe Clan signing a contract extension to keep him with the organisation until 2023.
Originally signed in May 2019 as a Fortnite content creator, Nick's Twitch and YouTube channel started gaining a lot of traction once Infinity Ward's game came out earlier this year, currently boasting over 7 million followers on both platforms combined.

NICKMERCS has also found plenty of success in terms of Twitch subscribers, as he's currently the most-subscribed personality on the platform, topping other renowned streamers like xQc, TimTheTatman, and the recently returned Shroud and Ninja.
In a press release, FaZe Clan CEO Lee Trink said that NICKMERCS “and MFAM (Nick's fanbase) have become an important part of the FaZe Clan family and Nick has become a terrific role model not just to other FaZe members but the gaming community at large.”
While the specifics of the contract weren't released, we're hoping the deal benefits the highly profitable streamer in order to avoid another Tfue situation, with the former Fortnite pro going as far as suing the organisation in a legal dispute that got settled after a grueling 15 months.
