These results are from November 2021. A few months ago around June, the rankings were completely different. If the US Germany Russia and France remain the same (even in numbers) third place has been taken away from Canada with South Korea's grand entry. interesting because Korea is It was nowhere near the top 5 at the time (though it was still in the top 10).

Most of these streamers are gamers and most play CS:GO Fortnite Valorant or LoL (most play MMOs to keep things short). Ninja is from the Fortnite scene and has been dominating this ranking. That's even more of a feat when you consider that he left Twitch at one point to join Mixer and Came back after closing.

8. The most popular game of all time on Twitch is League of Legends with 46406824144 viewers.

  • Fortnite took second place with over 27022464426 viewers while GTA V Online took third place with 21314086400 viewers.

Surprisingly GTA V Online managed to stay at the top of the charts. Rockstar wants their multiplayer game to be a success but there's a good chance they don't think it's going to be that successful. They even just focus on it now. Being a Veteran Doesn't Mean the Game Automatically Scores This is the highest number since DotA and is only younger than LoL but at the bottom of the top five. lol just a solid reference. However, let's give Caesar back what belongs to Caesar: Valve did a really good job there with two games.

You must have seen that person coming. People crave a way to socialize and stay busy. Of all the things that can be given to them Twitch is at the top of the list. Not like the platform desperately needs it because it's already doing well but there's no reason to say no. even delayed Discordant because the two platforms are a match made in heaven for the new crowd who just discovered them.

  • The category shows over 2.85 million hours watched in May 2021 compared to over 2.89 million hours watched in April 2021.

Yes this is not a game. But to really make it easy for streamers to switch between streams they have to pass it on as a game even if it's a category. As you can see it is the most popular category. This is a way to allow for a more direct interaction between streamers and viewers because they are There is a chat and nothing else. It's all about talking. Just chatting is really good even if it tends to give some people this illusion of a quasi-social relationship.

Android or iOS?

While the app still dominated in October it saw a sharp decline as the UK's top-selling app. what happened? It's not a matter of people not downloading the app as what's being tracked here is revenue via in-app purchases - the same graph as Germany on iPad even more dramatic. Of course, the categories are the same (ie: video and photo).

To sum up

When talking about esports or entertainment on the internet it's hard to see the future without Twitch. Not only did it bring a whole new concept of what socializing really was (because you were supposed to be out there) but it also created a real full-time job. no longer a valid statement "Playing a computer game will get you nowhere." It also expands itself in a visionary way by getting out of the comfort zone and accommodating ordinary people not just gamers.

Even though gaming will objectively be Twitch's most beloved lover consider that it's the one area that generates the most profits for the company. Just look at the growing popularity of eSports and the money that can be developed on the scene to see that video games are full of Chance. Twitch has been in this boat for a while: the platform is the go-to channel for most if not all sports-related activities.

Twitch is now part of the virtual landscape and will be going nowhere as it is already at the center of so much activity. So we can only wonder where they will take us next.
