Former Gears of War professional player turned full time streamer Nick “NICKMERCS” Kolcheff has finally hit a major milestone on his Twitch channel after years of dedicated full time streaming.

After stepping away from competitive Gears of War and his time on the historic ‘Nsanez’ team in the early days of GOW esports, NICKMERCS focused his efforts on streaming and quickly became popular enough to make a living full time.

He continued to grow throughout 2016 and 2017, mainly playing Call of Duty Search and Destroy tournaments on both Black Ops III and Modern Warfare Remastered.

But, similar to many other streamers, his following boomed thanks to the release and subsequent rise in popularity of Fortnite Battle Royale.

While some of his increased popularity is due to Fortnite, there is no taking away from his own dedication and quality of content, especially since Fortnite streaming quickly became a saturated genre.

NICKMERCS managed to stand out from the crowd, with his charismatic energy and aggressive playstyle, as well as being one of the few top Fortnite streamers to play on console.

And on June 30th 2018, he hit a major milestone, crossing the 1 million followers mark on the site.

NICKMERCS’ story shares some similarities to Tyler “Ninja” Blevins, who was also a professional console player, his game of choice being Halo, before moving to streaming and blowing up with Fortnite.

Kolcheff continues to grow, especially his subscriber count which at the time of writing sits at around 25,000, thanks to his popular subscriber Fortnite tournaments which he runs weekly.

You can follow and watch NICKMERCS on his Twitch Channel, and keep up to date with him on Twitter.

Dr Disrespect’s Halloween ‘Doctober’ contest has returned and with it, fans of the Two-Time have unveiled their best cosplays of the legendary streamer.

Given Doc’s larger-than-life personality and outfit with the red vest, black mullet, mustache, combat boots and sunglasses, he’s cosplay material.

The contest is simple, post a picture of yourself dressed as Doc and tweet it with the hashtag #Doctober for a chance to win prizes from the Two-Time himself.

While Dr Disrespect hasn’t picked his winners yet, here are five Doctober cosplays we think are deserving of tasting victory.

There’s a lot in this photo that makes it stand out from the crowd. Primarily, it’s the theme of the 1993/1994 BlockBuster video game championship that Doc has built his “Two Time” moniker around.

For one, you have the podium with the Doc cosplayer standing above two children as a man dressed as a BlockBuster employee hands out a trophy.

The BlockBuster video cases in the back keep the immersion intact while a Sega Genesis shows what appears to be NBA Jam. This was just well-done in general.

This one amplifies the Halloween aspect of the cosplay with some horror elements going on.

The cosplay itself is well done with the sweat pants featuring the logo, vest, mullet and sunglasses all intact. Meanwhile, the background features a spooky full moon and peashooters dropping in.

On the ground, the zombified hand reaching out of the grave secures its place on our list primarily for the Halloween theme.

Working together with your spouse on a cosplay deserves some credit, and that’s exactly what this couple did to recreate Mrs Assassin’s Instagram photo.

This unique cosplay has the wife standing on her husband with a knife by his throat – perfectly emulating the original.

Her husband’s pose as Doc is also extremely well-done, so this one is definitely a serious contender.

This is most likely the most standard Doc cosplay on this list, but it looks so authentic we couldn’t not mention it.

Nothing fancy, just an extremely well-crafted Doc outfit equipped with an authentic mustache. It just works, and it does so perfectly.

Kids dressed up as Doc is nothing new, but there’s something about a five-year-old with a mullet drinking G-Fuel that is downright hilarious.

As far as the outfit goes, once again, this kid’s parents nail it – all the boxes are checked. It also really helps that the boy’s attitude while posing for the video seems to match Doc’s energy, which is a major plus.

There is only one day left until Halloween, so it’s not to late for you to enter the contest itself and show the YouTube streamer what you’ve got.
