Nick “NickMercs” Kolcheff is renewing his contract with Faze Clan, in a three-year extension. It’s a big deal, not least because Kolcheff is the most subscribed-to person on Twitch — clocking in at an astonishing 56,000 subscribers — and also one of the biggest channels on the entire site. (A note: you have to pay to subscribe to streamers on Twitch, although following and watching is free. A subscription starts at $5.)
“They’re never in the way,” Kolcheff says about Faze. For him, the partnership means more on-the-ground resources for his content creation, as well as continued support from the biggest gaming brand in the world.
