- A Korean newcomer at #3, 옥냥이 (aka rooftopcat09). Going by the names of their streams this is a (popular!) general gaming screen that decided to play the SC2 single player episodes this month - so this is probably a one-off.
- Looks like Destiny felt like playing some SC2 again, promptly putting him back in the top 10. He's streamed a few times in August too so far, so maybe he's here to stay this time?
- As expected, WCS Valencia drew a lot of viewers, topping out at 80k (!) viewers during the finals in which Serral took home another title. This puts the tournament in the all-time the top 20, not bad for a 2018 mid-season event.
- As foretold, the upwards trend continues, though not as strongly as you'd perhaps have expected based on last year's summer trend. Last year saw a bit of a drop in August, but perhaps that'll be less the case this year with GSL vs The World being this month's highlight? We'll see in a few weeks...
- 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)
