Apologies for skipping a month - I had a lot of things going on in November, and once I had time to sit down and do the monthly post it was almost December already, at which point I figured it made more sense to wait until I could post the November post. You can check Fuzic for October rankings if you're interested in those.
- The big highlight here is, of course, Blizzcon! Peaking at 173k, this was actually the most people ever recorded watching an event by Fuzic. Looks like Starcraft 2's healthy enough, and can still draw those big audiences. It didn't hurt that the tournament itself was exciting as well, with Serral making it all the way through to #1.
- HomeStory Cup was the other big event, and scored big as well: 74k watching at day 4. Clearly it's not just Blizzcon, and more generally SC2 can still drum up a lot of attention.
- Streamer-wise, there wasn't that much going on past month. Worth noting that MCanning cracks the top 3 for the first time; he got featured on the Twitch frontpage, which is always a good way to draw in some extra viewers. We'll see if it's a lasting improvement next month!
- Another thing to note is that Serral seems to have started streaming regularly. As one of the top global players he's sure to get a lot of viewers, so he's one to watch if he keeps this up.
- 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)
