FaZe Clan content creator and Twitch personality Nick “NICKMERCS” Kolcheff has signed a multi-year deal to stream exclusively on Twitch. The announcement was timed to coincide with TwitchCon, where Kolcheff is promoting his brand.
Kolcheff’s deal ensures that he will continue to stream exclusively on Twitch, which he has already done since 2011. He currently holds the #3 Fortnite channel on Twitch this year after Tyler “Ninja” Blevins and Turner “Tfue” Tenney and #2 for the month of September, second only to Tenney.
The multi-year agreement comes at a time when Fortnite streamers are moving to other services or streaming other titles. Blevins left the platform in August for an exclusive deal with Microsoft’s Mixer platform. A few weeks ago, Turner “Tfue” Tenney, the most-watched influencer on Twitch so far this year, announced that he was taking a hiatus from streaming and will return Oct. 1.
Fortnite saw its lowest viewership in September since its launch in the Spring of 2018. Now that Kolcheff as agreed to stream exclusively on Twitch, the platform secures one of its most popular Fortnite personalities.
