According to new data, Twitch streamer Nick “Nickmercs” Kolcheff had one of the most successful years ever on the platform. In 2021, he was in the top 10 of Twitch streamers in terms of watch hours for Call of Duty: Warzone, Apex Legends and Fortnite.

The data was published in graphic form by a Twitter user that goes by the name @FoxEyeFN. Nickmercs was the 10th most-watched Fortnite Twitch streamer, second most-watched Apex Legends streamer and first most-watched Warzone streamer, according to But this only applies to English-speaking streamers. If taking other languages into account, he would still be in the top 10 of Apex Legends and Warzone streamers, given his authority on both titles.

Nickmercs posts triple-double on Twitch in 2021

Nickmercs responded to the graphic by saying “Lil triple double on em,” referencing the basketball statistic that is awarded to a player who posts double-digit stats in three different areas.

In October of 2021, the battle royale streamer inked an exclusive streaming contract with the Amazon-owned platform. Since then, Nickmercs has maintained a dominant authority on Twitch, consistently pulling in tens of thousands of viewers.

This viewership doesn’t change based on the game the streamer is playing, as the above graphic shows. Nickmercs decided to start playing Apex Legends in 2021, a game he only dabbled in previously. After the cheating and gameplay issues in Warzone and Fortnite grew worse towards the latter half of 2021, Nickmercs decided to make Apex Legends his full-time game. He occasionally goes back to Warzone or Fortnite, though, where he can sometimes pull in even more viewers.

If one thing is clear, the MFAM, Nickmercs’ community of fans, is one of the strongest amongst any streaming platform.
