Top 10 Most-Watched Twitch Channels, March 25 – 31

Riot Games tops the charts as League of Legends Spring Split playoffs ensue, while streamers from an eclectic assortment of games continue to prove how diverse the audience is on Twitch.

Every week, The Esports Observer releases a list of the top 10 Twitch Database-Link-e1521645463907 channels, ranked by total number of hours watched for the week, from Monday through Sunday, with data compiled using TEO Analytics.

How to Fight a Ninja


Turner “Tfue” Tenney spent most of 2018 playing second fiddle to Tyler “Ninja” Blevins as a Fortnite Database-Link-e1521645463907 streamer on Twitch, but this year has been a different story.

One-third of the way into the year, Tenney has regularly topped all other Fortnite streamers, including Blevins. Tenny’s average of 52K concurrent viewers this week beat Blevins’ average of 31K CCV, and that helped propel him to 2.4M hours watched, up from Blevins’ 1.7M.

Those figures have been relatively consistent across the first four months of the year as well. Tenney’s average of 47K CCV this year is higher than Blevins’ average of 36K CCV. That’s helped him outperform Blevin’s total viewership of 19.3M hours watched by nearly 5M hours with a total of 24M hours watched.

Role Model


Following the rise of Grand Theft Auto V role play streams, viewers have started to turn to one of the original role play gamers who has been featured on other more mainstream influencers like Chance “Sodapoppin” Morris, Mark “Markiplier” Fischbach, and Ben “DrLupo” Lupo.

“VaderRP” has 679 hours of airtime on GTA this year, but prior to top streamers such as Jaryd “Summit1G” Lazar flocking to the entertaining role play content, he averaged less than 1K CCV. However, with his GTA character Eugene regularly interacting with highly-popular broadcasters and helping them learn the ropes of role play, VaderRP’s” viewership has skyrocketed.

Since March 12, “VaderRP” has racked up 2.2M hours watched averaging 13K CCV, and this week pushed his way into the top 10 for the first time ever.

Magical Gathering


Coverage of the Mythic Invitational for Magic: The Gathering Arena at PAX East in Boston served as one of the first signs of what people can expect from the online card game as an esport.

At 1.9M hours watched from March 27-31, all coverage of the event averaged around 33K CCV, peaking at 126K CCV. However, overall numbers don’t do justice to what the event truly provided in terms of viewership.

On the final day of coverage, the 5.6 hours long stream to cap off the tournament drew an average of 96K CCV. That session alone accounts for more than 500K hours watched for the channel this weekend.

The channels overall CCV was diluted by a few rebroadcasted streams that only recorded averages around 3K CCV. Much of the events live coverage averaged higher than 50K CCV.
