NICKMERCS Is Staying Well Away From Twitch's TV Meta

Nicholas "NICKMERCS" Kolcheff isn't going to be playing fire with Twitch's DMCA rules any time soon by indulging in the 'TV Show meta', as the streamer has proclaimed that his streams will only feature him playing games from now on. 

Twitch has certainly seen its fair share of controversial metas which have swept the platform. But arguably, none proved more controversial and explosive than the 'TV Show meta', which saw some of Twitch's most famous content creators livestreaming their reactions to popular TV shows and films. 

While the meta may have been incredibly popular among viewers, it also kicked off a heated debate across the streaming community as creators were banned left, right, and centre, for breaching Twitch's DMCA laws. Well, it doesn't look like NICKMERCS will be one of them, as he's sworn he is staying far away from the meta. 

What Did NICKMERCS Say About The TV Meta?

Speaking during one of his streams on January 20, NICKMERCS touched upon the TV Show meta claiming that "everything is DMCA these days, I literally just sit here all day and play video games." He also took a swipe at "every other streamer" who has done "the opposite" and delved into the meta as part of their content with, occasionally, disastrous results.

The 31-year-old was no doubt referring to the likes of big name streamers like Imane "Pokimane" Anys, who sent shockwaves across the community when she received her first ever ban from Twitch for streaming Avatar: The Last Airbender. Her mate Jeremy "Disguised Toast" Wang, also didn't manage to avoid a strike for watching Deathnote. Yet, despite his love for MasterChef, Felix "xQc" Lengyel seemed to miss getting into trouble.

Has NICKMERCS Ever Had A Twitch Strike For Breaching DMCA Rules?

NICKMERCS started talking about the TV Show meta after laughing about his remix of the Walmart Yodelling Kid video, which quickly became viral in February 2020. However, he promptly received a strike from Twitch for playing the remix during a livestream and breaching the platform's DMCA rules. NICKMERCS' fans begged him to replay the clip in his chat, but he immediately shut down their requests because he claimed he didn't want to risk getting another strike. 

Speaking about his previous strike experiences, NICKMERCS said: "I had two strikes, so I was playing everything super carefully. That's my life now. Those strikes are gone, I'm free, but I still don't want to risk it." However, he did seem tempted by the idea because, if he did get banned, it would make for an epic comeback stream.
