- Most of February was business as usual - no big surprises in the top 30, and top events were the usual suspects of IEM and GSL.
- The top streamers list sees a return of SjoW, who took a break from his usual Hearthstone to play some SC2 again. ForGG also returned from his military services, and looks like he plans to get back to his old profession.
- Another newcomer is Alex007SC2, another Russian YouTube streamer. Looks like Russia has a bit of a preference for YouTube over Twitch?
- Looking at the overall trend, there definitely seems to be an upswing in average viewers per month - though it's probably wise to hold off conclusions until that persists over a longer period of time.
- As always, suggestions and requests are welcome!
Huh? What's this?
I run Fuzic - which collects statistics and rankings of StarCraft II live streams - and these threads are a summary of the viewer numbers for the past month.
Data is sourced from fuzic, and additional up-to-date stats may be found there. But in these threads - which I will try to post at the beginning of every month - there will be a monthly summary so you can get a quick overview of that month's viewer numbers.
The rankings list any stream that is reported on by the APIs of the various streaming services (Twitch, Azubu, etc). I have no way of verifying to what extent someone's viewers are legitimate, and therefore will not independently ban someone from the rankings. Please do not start a(nother) discussion about this in this thread.
"VxH", or "hours viewed" is the average amount of viewers multiplied by the amount of hours the streamer has streamed during that month. Basically, if for each viewer you count the amount of hours they watched the stream during the month, and add them up, you get this number. The list is sorted by this metric, as it gives a good impression of the streamer's activity through the month.
You can click the links below the charts for additional stats and a list you can sort by whichever metric you prefer.
(Full ranking - note that these include streams in which events were streamed, and the above ranking does not)
