Popular Twitch streamer Nick ‘NICKMERCS’ Kolcheff called out one of his donators after they claimed to have been unfairly banned from his typing in his channel.

Many of the top streamers often have to deal with viewers looking to troll or provoke them while they are broadcasting to their fans and they usually enlist the help of a moderator team to help police their chat.

However, some viewers can find themselves being unfairly banned during moments of chaos within a stream, which often leads to them reaching out to the streamer through donations in an attempt to get their ban lifted.

FaZe ClanMany Twitch streamers such as NICKMERCS often have viewers looking to troll them.

Popular streamer NICKMERCS found himself in this exact situation during his stream on October 24, after a viewer had reached out to him about his previous ban, claiming that he had only jokingly called Nick a “turkey.”

Unfortunately for the donator, the Twitch star was able to access a log of all the viewer bans and began hilariously exposing some of the messages that were actually typed in NICKMERCS’ chat by the Twitch troll.

“If you play World of Warcraft you’re a b*tch”, NICKMERCS read aloud, starting to list off a few of the donator’s negative comments which even included an attempt to pit Nick against his fellow streamer, Ninja.

Nick was surprised after reading through the viewer’s comments and highlighted the viewer’s earlier excuse, expressing that none of the messages were similar to his claims, “that doesn’t translate to turkey, none of that, none of it! All of that is not grouped up to turkey.”

NICKMERCS also uncovered that the troll had made an effort in promoting his own channel in his chat before being banned, which led to Nick explaining that he could look back on anything that his viewers were banned for.

“You are a fu**ing character, act right! Chat, there is a chat log, if you say some stupid s**t we can always go back and show you.”

It should serve as a warning to anyone who is seeking attention from a popular streamer, it is likely that they will still be aware of what you’re doing even amid all the spam.

NICKMERCS is not the first streamer to expose one of his viewers for lying, as popular League of Legends star Tyler1 also called out one of his viewers who had asked to be unbanned recently.

Like most popular streamers, Shroud has been getting stuck into the World of Warcraft: Shadowlands grind, but although he’s enjoyed it so far, he said he feels like the game is “less immersive” than it used to be.

World of Warcraft: Shadowlands has taken the world by storm ever since it launched on November 23. Players have been hopping back into Azeroth to take the reigns of their characters once again.

Popular streamers like Mike ‘Shroud’ Grzesiek have been getting stuck into the grind too. He’s been very open about how much he loves the game and has streamed hours upon hours of World of Warcraft Classic. He even said he was willing to lose viewers to stream it.

Shroud has thoroughly enjoyed playing World of Warcraft for many years now.

However, Shroud isn’t blinded by his love and adoration for the game. He still has some criticism for World of Warcraft: Shadowlands and MMORPGs in general, and he mentioned them in his latest stream.

“I feel like [MMORPG’s] and WoW, in general, have transcended into something completely different,” he said. “In the past, you [played] because you were immersed. You were leveling up your character. You were getting new items. It felt good to be more powerful and do better things.”

“Now I feel like WoW is like play with friends and kill some shit,” he said. “That feeling of immersion and truly having an impact on the world and your character feeling there has kind of nullified.”

“When I played vanilla WoW in 2005, I was 11 years old, and it felt amazing,” he said. “It felt incredible. It felt like I was in my own realm. I was in my own world. Now it doesn’t feel like that. That feeling is gone.

The relevant part of the video starts at 2:00.

It’s a sentiment that others have echoed time and time again. The consensus is that MMORPGs have been streamlined throughout the years.

However, it hasn’t stopped millions of players, including Shroud, from enjoying World of Warcraft: Shadowlands. 

Plus, despite his criticism, he thinks now is the “best time” for new players to start playing the game because the new leveling process is “really cool.”
