“I HIT MY FIRST EVER TRICKSHOT ON BLACK OPS 2!” is the oldest video on Alex’s channel. This video has over 70k views as of September 2022. In the video, Alex plays Call of Duty: Black Ops 2 and achieves his first trickshot in the game.
Formula began his gaming career in his adolescence when he became obsessed with Call of Duty. He quickly met others who shared his passion for the game and eventually started the Red Reserve YouTube gaming channel, where he fostered a tiny but devoted community of Call of Duty players.
In November 2014, he registered the now-defunct YouTube channel. Despite forming the team, Kushelevskiy chose to manage it rather than compete with or create content for it, according to TubeFilter. He made sporadic appearances as a gamer and commentator while managing Red Reserve and eventually managed to get the Red Reserve associated with the FaZe Clan.
For a long time, Red Reserve was regarded as a minor surrogate organization of the FaZe Clan. This cooperation allowed Formula to collaborate with FaZe Clan members and start filming Call of Duty collaboration films on the side.
Following the final breakdown and disbandment of the Red Reserve, Formula began to gravitate toward content creation rather than management, owing to his noticeable negative experience during his first managerial job.
Fortnite, Epic Games’ popular Battle Royale, was published around the same time. Formula switched from Call of Duty to Fortnite and eventually registered his self-titled YouTube account on May 9, 2017.
According to Net Worth Spot, Alex has an estimated net worth of $530.57 thousand as of September 2022. On average, the Formula channel has received 1.58 million views per month and more than 52.64 thousand views per day.
