    Family and growing up

    Nickmercs

    Here is a rundown of NickMercs Biography and how he is successful in keeping his life private. He does not use social platforms like Facebook only Twitter and Instagram, but he uses it very rarely. Not much of his family is known besides his two younger siblings. 

    From the rare images he has on the internet, his well-built body can be seen. It’s not a coincidence. His father, Kevin Kolcheff, was a high school football coach and wanted Nick to follow the path of a hardworking student-athlete. So, he grew up mostly by playing sport in middle school and high school. He even won the in a free-throw basketball competition in Michigan. You can imagine Kevin’s disappointment when Nick revealed his passion for gaming. The only thing that his father didn’t approve of, the thing he believed was stealing his time from more productive activities was something that Nick wanted to do for a living.

    “When he’s [Nick] in 8th grade, and it’s four in the morning on a Tuesday, and I get up to go to the bathroom, and he has a blanket over his head in his room playing video games—on a school night, no less—we came nose-to-nose many times,” recalled Kevin.

    The disputes would escalate to a breaking point, I mean real breaking point – Kevin once broke Nick’s Xbox! After five years, Kevin finally acknowledged Nick’s passion for gaming, left the job as high school trained and it’s now a full-time manager for Nick, helping him take care of all everyday activities and great dealings or meetings so that Nick can focus on streaming.

    NickMercs lives a rigorous life, being a professional gamer, and Twitch Streamer. He spends most of his time uploading YouTube videos, streaming on his Twitch account, and competing on tournaments. He rarely takes out time for dating. Form the few pictures posted with his alleged girlfriend we can see he is in a relationship, but her identity is kept secret, and nothing is known about her. Some of his fans believe that he is already married, and that mystery woman is his wife, but there is no official confirmation concerning his married life. One of his hilarious uploads includes this “woman” calling him in the middle of a game.

    NickMercs and Gaming

    As we know, NickMercs always had a big passion for gaming and stayed on this path to make his dream come true. But it wasn’t easy at all. When he started his YouTube channel, he struggled to gather subscribers needed to grow. Streaming videos playing Call of Duty while providing funny commentary as he played wasn’t enough. 

    He occasionally switched to other eSports streaming, like Destiny, Uno, and Monopoly. But again with no success. The arrival of the game, Fortnite Battle Royale in 2017, helped him to build his audience. Playing from the very beginning of the game he holds the record for 56 elims in one game. NickMercs took to the new game right away as a console player. And he made the right choice because Fortnite players on streaming platforms are the biggest hit of 2018. He manages to makes his gameplay on Twitch, and YouTube unique becomes an addiction to his fans.

    He averages roughly 20k viewers on his twitch channel, it is the third most-watched and 13th most-watched overall. Counting his money, we must not forget that he is making quite a lot of money competing in tournaments. In February 2018, his team made more than $8,400 over four days competing in Fortnite competitions. His income from YouTube channel varies between $43K to $68K yearly. The famous stream on August 17 when he won the inaugural Friday Fortnite Tournament earned him an approximated $3,700. As of 2018, NickMercs’ net worth is estimated at $2 million. 

    He is one of the many reasons why Fortnite is so successful today. He and NoahJ456 are two content creators in the eSports organization “100 Thieves‘.  Recently NickMercs has left 100 Thieves as he was very upset with the organizations promises of him being a co-owner of the organization.  On his livestreams he has said that he showed up to all the events and meetings but was never given more than “just a streamer” with the organization.

    Since this has happened Nick is not happy with Nadeshot.  Nadeshot has never given his side of the story most likely as this would just make the issue more well known.  You can tell Nick felt destroyed by this as Nadeshot even pulled Nick’s dad to the side at the start and said don’t worry I will take care of him, you have nothing to worry about.  Today though Nick has moved on and quickly joined Faze Clan and has reported he is very happy with his move.

    Since switching to Fortnite, Nickmercs has announced that he is never returning to COD. “You guys are all crazy to even talk to me about Call of Duty, I ain’t never going back”

    He Played COD because it was the only game that had a competitive future, at the time, on a console.  I hope you enjoyed NickMercs biography please check back as articles are updated regularly as their story continues to be written.
