Felix ‘xQc’ Lengyel ruled Twitch for the last three weeks. The player gathered the most viewership around the world. However, Shroud changed this as he returned to Twitch. xQc left the top spot for Shroud as he gathered the biggest audience.
The top content category of the ranking stood its position. However, League of Legends lost its position in the list. The game held the second category content before that eventually changed. League of Legends European Championship happens to take a break this week as a newly launched game Full Guys: Ultimate Knockout makes an appearance.
One of the Twitch’s long-time and most famous streamers, Michael “shroud” Grzesiek, made his return on a Wednesday to the streaming platform after he signed a deal. Shroud returned to Twitch as Mixer died and let him go. Although Michael “shroud” Grzesiek was an hour late to the platform for his streaming, he still managed to reach 3 million unique viewers and he almost peaked at beholding, simultaneously, 516K viewers.
Félix “xQc” Lengyel, on the other hand, maintained a viewership of 3.18M over a week even after dropping to the second position. The second most-watched channel on Twitch, The League of Legends European Championship, took a long, on week break to get ready for its playoffs on the upcoming Friday, was dropped out of the ranking as a result. Nevertheless, the ranking contained League of Legends instead of it. As soon as the U.S. based League of Legends Championship Series started to play off its tournament on a Thursday, League’s official Twitch channel re-entered the scene of the ranking in the sixth position.
Eight weeks have passed since Just Chatting is not the most viewed content category on Twitch, withholding more than 37.5M hours of viewership during the week. Fall Guys: Ultimate Knockout has now claimed the second spot in Twitch’s top 10 most viewed Twitch categories. This also happened as a consequence when a widely spread hype about Fall Guys: Ultimate Knockout; a newly launched Takeshi’s Castle-esque game and a week-long break that League of Legends European Championship took before they headed off to their playoffs later this week.
League of Legends
The third most-watched streaming was Riot Games’ League of Legends, which almost totaled a sum of 29.3M hours during this week. While Riot Games’ League of Legends was the third most-watched streaming, Fortnite secured the fourth position with more than 20M hours in viewership. If a comparison is made to the prior week’s ranking, World of Warcraft was dropped out of the ranking, making a vacancy in favor of Dota 2. And on the other hand, simultaneously, Valve’s Counter-Strike: Global Offensive and Rockstar Games’ Grand Theft Auto V climbed a spot up the ladder to secure a ranking in future streaming. Twitch is changing its viewer ranking every day. Several games are taking the lead by breaking all records.
