Nickmercs and TimThetatman trade blows over Apex Legends

Naturally, this tweet was going to pick up traction and TimTheTatman hoped in with a joke directed at Nickmercs. Nick recently started playing EA’s Battle Royale title and has been grinding his way towards the highest rank of Apex Predator. However, his grind hasn’t been an easy one and Tim poked fun at his failed attempts to rank up.

Nick isn’t someone who would let such a joke slide, even from a beloved friend like Tim. The proud co-owner of FaZe clan had this to say, and it forced Tim to backpedal out of the thread.

Tim accepted his defeat in the banter and bowed out instantly, securing an immediate win for Nickmercs.
