Twitch streamer Nick "NICKMERCS" Kolcheff says he plans to take a hiatus from playing Call of Duty: Warzone.

NICKMERCS announced the decision in a video uploaded to YouTube on Tuesday titled "Moving On..."

"I'm dipping from Call of Duty: Warzone," he says in the video.

"Call of Duty's just in a really, really bad spot," he continued. "There's no sign of light at the end of this tunnel."

NICKMERCS said the main problem was his lack of passion for Warzone as it plays now.

"Point blank, I have no desire whatsoever to play Warzone. Zero. I mean, like, goose egg. I'd rather play fucking Pokémon."

In addition being tired of the game, NICKMERCS complained that the prevalence of hackers in-game had become exhausting. Still, he clarified that it was only a matter of time before he was back into Warzone.

"I might be back on in a couple weeks, or I might go check it out and do some uploads and stuff. We're definitely not never going to upload it again. We're not going to never play it again."

In the interim, he expects to play a lot of Apex Legends, and hopes to reach the rank of Predator, which he set as a personal goal for himself.
