Nickmercs Reveals His Plans on Going Pro in Apex Legends
If Nickmercs is serious, he could make a huge impact on the Apex Legends Pro scene come 2022. It’s something that has been discussed before, but no plans were actually made. Before, he’s said he just wants to give it a try and did well in a tournament in September. However, Nickmercs has hit the Predator rank for a second time, and he’s going to be “getting on the grind” into the Apex Legends scene and going pro. In a recent stream, the FaZe streamer even said he has got a team in mind.
Qualifications Begin in February; Will Nickmercs Be Ready?
According to the streamer, his team is even two-thirds locked down, and that in February this is all going to get kicked off. Nickmercs is an incredible player as well, and to think he could be an Apex Legends pro is a pretty exciting proposition. Nickmercs talked about this in a recent stream, but he also said that things could change. But for now, he’s got big plans:
“Those plans could change, yeah, but right now I have plans. I want to keep climbing the ranks of Predator, and I want to get to the point where I’m very comfortable, me, Deeds, and whoever we pick up as a trio before late February. I want to go for Apex pro. You know what I mean? That’s what I want to do now. We get to January, and that might change! I have no idea. It probably won’t, that’s really what I want to do.”
He’s going to be competing as a trios player, and he’s got one player ready to roll out with him. ItsDeeds is going to be his partner according to the man himself. Now he just needs to find a third willing to go with them. That could change in January, but he seems to be pretty confident of it. It’s not like Nickmercs is new to competitive gaming, either. He made a tidy amount playing Fortnite competitively, and then shifted to Warzone, where he also cleaned up.
It’s also important to note that Nickmercs, back in the Justin.tv days competed in Gears of War and Halo, so he’s got a name many trusts in the esports world. If Nickmercs says he’s down to get into Apex Legends, this could be a huge move. We’ll just have to see what happens in the Apex Legends pro scene if Nickmercs joins in.
