NICKMERCS closes in on 50,000 active Twitch subscribers during Call of Duty event
NICKMERCS’ MFAM Gauntlet event is helping the battle royale streamer rack up more subscriptions than he’s ever had on Twitch—and he’s posting some of his best viewership numbers of the year in the process.
With more than 49,000 subscribers as of the end of his stream yesterday, Nick has reached a personal best on Twitch, beating his previous monthly best of 46,142 total subscribers in April, according to TwitchTracker.
The MFAM Gauntlet tournament is an event run by Nick himself that allows subscribers on his channel to participate and win a little bit of cash for performing well. After three weeks of qualifications, the tournament ends with a showdown next week that could boost Nick’s viewership and sub count even more.
Following the end of his stream last night, Mercs posted on Twitter saying that 50,000 viewers was the most he’d ever seen on his channel during a MFAM Gauntlet. Meanwhile, his subscriber count was creeping up on a 50,000 milestone that he’s acutely aware of.
“Crazy fuckin’ day,” he wrote. “50,000 viewers, our highest during a qualifier for the #MFAMGauntlet. Knockin’ on 50K subs too. W. The energy is crazy! Big shout out to our moderators, for working their asses.”
After the U.S. declared a state of emergency in response to the COVID-19 pandemic earlier this year, subscriptions to Nick’s channel began to rise in March and April. But last month, that number declined slightly.
Playing exclusively Call of Duty: Warzone and Fortnite this year, Mercs’ viewership has steadily increased as well, peaking during his MFAM Gauntlet finale for May that averaged more than 55,000 viewers.
