After former 100 Thieves member Nick ‘NICKMERCS‘ Kolcheff left the organization and complained of failed promises, CEO Matthew ‘Nadeshot‘ Haag remained silent – until now.

During his May 28 stream, Nadeshot finally addressed the situation, following comments from NICKMERCS stating he would never work with him again, and no longer liked Nadeshot on a personal level.

NICKMERCS’ public accusations against Nadeshot were a surprise to many, as it initially appeared to have been an amicable departure, but has now become much more complicated.

Twitter/100 ThievesNICKMERCS was one of the original members of 100 Thieves’ content team.

On May 25, Kolcheff said he “wanted nothing to do” with Nadeshot again, citing a lack of experience at the CEO level for Nade’s shortcomings.

But Nadeshot is not interested in a “back and forth”, instead sending a message of support to his now-former friend and team member. “I have a lot of respect for what Nick has done with his career. I think he’s one of the best at what he does, as a content creator.”

“I’m not going to make a comment or statement on the situation at hand,” Nadeshot states, before continuing “I don’t think there’s any point to having this back and forth. I don’t want to do it. I’m sorry that Nick feels the way that he does, it’s just a tough situation.”

Nadeshot goes on to compliment how NICKMERCS has built up his personal brand, and his ‘MFAM’ community, wishing him “all the best”.

“He’s going to have a long and successful career,” Nadeshot explains. “He’s built the MFAM and himself individually, he’s going to be just fine.”

NICKMERCS spoke out against Hector ‘H3CZ’ Rodriguez, after the OpTic CEO appeared to side with Nadeshot on episode 30 of his Eavesdrop podcast.

    NICKMERCS appears to be going his own way for now, although there is some speculation that he could join another organization in the near future, with FaZe Clan a potential suitor.

Spanish streamer ‘TheGrefg’ has broken Ninja’s world record for most people watching a Twitch stream during the Galactus Fortnite event.

David ‘TheGrefg’ Cánovas made Twitch history while streaming the Galactus event, which marked the end of Fortnite season 4, when he had more people watching him at once than any other individual Twitch streamer ever has in history.

The Spaniard was watching and reacting to the event, and captures appear to confirm that he reached a total of 660,000 people watching his stream at the same time before Twitch unfortunately crashed.

The previous record you might remember was held by Ninja from when he teamed up with rapper Drake, where the duo peaked at 635k viewers at once while playing Fortnite back in 2018.

This insane amount of simultaneous viewers in a broadcast was almost double the figures of the previous record, held by  DrDisrespect — now streaming on YouTube — when he had 338,000 during his return stream in February 2018.

Now, the title for most-watched stream on Twitch now belongs to TheGrefg, and while there are no official figures yet, screenshots and clips definitely seem to indicate the streamer managed to bring in than 660,000 people simultaneously.

Grefg was far from the only streamer posting impressive viewer counts during the Galactus event, which actually “broke” Twitch and caused the site to temporarily crash following the big reveal. This is the big reason why the official viewer count, while definitely impressive, isn’t exactly known just yet.

The event itself officially closed out Fortnite Season 4, with the Season 5 update arriving at 9 PM PT / 12 AM ET / 5 AM GMT on Wednesday, December 2, according to Epic Games, with downtime expected to last all the way up to 1 AM PT / 4 AM ET / 9 AM GMT.

After that, the brand new season will kick off, and Fortnite fans — including Grefg — will get to check out all of the new content. Whether the streamer will be able to repeat his impressive record-breaking feat remains to be seen, but we certainly wish him the best of luck.
