NICKMERCS Announces Leaving Warzone For Apex Legends

Although many viewers had already guessed that NICKMERCS would be leaving Warzone behind for Apex Legends, he hadn't actually commented on the subject. Well, the now number one Apex streamer has released a video commenting on his stance in regards to Warzone and making the decision to put it aside for now.

During this video, NICKMERCS states early on that he has absolutely, "no desire whatsoever to play Warzone" anymore. He then goes on to say that he would rather play Pokemon which is absolutely hilarious, although, I love Pokemon but respect his viewpoint.

One of the most important things he said was, "I gotta do what is best for me, I have to have fun doing what I am doing," something that all viewers should bear in mind and support. He then announced that he is, "dipping from Call of Duty: Warzone." He continues, "Now, not permanently, I might be back on in a couple weeks, or go check it out but you know Call of Duty is in a really really bad spot, there is no sign of light at the end of this tunnel."

Although this may be sad news for some loyal fans that also love Warzone, the most important thing is to remember that NICKMERCS is human and deserves to pursue whatever it is he wishes to and if that's Apex Legends, so be it.

The plus side is that many, many Warzone streamers have also been making the switch to Apex and it has seen a huge rise in viewership, rising to the third most-viewed game on Twitch this week. It's great to see Apex Legends finally getting the recognition it deserves and hopefully Respawn continues to provide ample content and keep us all wanting more.
