Riot Games led all channels again as the League of Legends World Championship continues to dominate viewership on Twitch.
Meanwhile, Jeremy “Disguised Toast” Wang led all influencers for his streams of Riot’s new online card game Legends of Runeterra.
Additionally, the official Fortnite channel, which typically only broadcasts esports, drew notable viewership during the game’s “The End” event which included server downtime and ominous black hole.
The following channels are ranked according to the total number of hours watched on Twitch from Monday to the following Sunday, with data compiled using TEO Access.
The League of Legends World Championship continues to produce the strongest viewership on Twitch with four different channels in the top 10 this week during the events Group Stage.
Riot Games led all channels for the week with an average of 96.5K concurrent viewers while Korean, French, and Spanish-language broadcasts also recorded more than 1.5M hours watched for the week.
While the Group Stage has some of the event’s largest hours watched figures, the higher average CCV during live competition comes from the knockout stages which will begin this weekend and take place over a larger spread of time.
Jeremy “Disguised Toast” Wang is known as one of the most influential online card game broadcasters on Twitch. So when Riot Games recently announced that it was releasing an online card game of its own next year, it was only natural that Wang would broadcast any sort of preview or early access content that was unveiled for it.
Riot announced that the title would be fully available in 2020, but the developer has given preview access to pre-registered customers leading to broadcasters like Wang taking some time on stream to check out the new game that will soon be competing with games like Hearthstone, Artifact, and Magic The Gathering: Arena.
Beginning of The End
The official Fortnite channel on Twitch is typically a hub for Fortnite-related esports events, but this past week it served as a place where players could check in to see if the game was available to be played.
On Sunday of last week, Fortnite servers were unavailable as a part of an in-game event called “The End.” Instead of getting their normal gameplay screens, players who logged in could only see a black screen that had was many called a “Black Hole” in the center.
As many fans looked for answers revolving around server downtime and the ominous in-game screen, the Fortnite channel attracted more than 2M hours watched as people basically just stared at a black hole waiting for Fortnite servers to go live again. The channels single stream that began on Oct. 13 lasted 41.5 hours and averaged 59K CCV.
