How can you say that? This major has more viewers than the previous one
2018-09-23 18:56

who tf cares about twitch? the viewer count went up and that's it. not even to mention asia
2018-09-23 19:05
lmao its literally the only viewer count that matters (excluding asia)
2018-09-23 19:09
youtube and steamtv (both didn't exist before) get 200-300k together twitch also gets 500k at least. no difference actually except for the FACT that there are more viewers
2018-09-23 19:11
then what happened to the 700k ish viewers from twitch?
2018-09-23 19:12
200-300k went to steamtv and youtube. just told you that before, ape brain :)
2018-09-23 19:15
why would 200-300k people downgrade to a worse service lol, mr ape brain oh and you're saying theres 700k or 800k people watching thats less than 1+ million we used to have

final hasn't ended. semi final this year has more peak viewers than at boston.
2018-09-23 19:18
not really. i was talking about the semis cuz the finals didnt start, ape brain. about youtube and steamtv? both better than twitch except for chat which 200-300k ppl didn t give a fuck about as it s useless obviously
2018-09-23 19:19
okay even if you want to go with the total viewcount (instead of twitch viewers) then this still is a huge downgrade Eleague 2018 major = 1 342 107 viewers (asia included: 1 847 542 viewers)
2018-09-23 19:21
we will get it in the final if the game is as good as the last major final was. idk how your brain compares semis to finals
2018-09-23 19:29
?? this is the final currently only 700k-ish watching right now
2018-09-23 19:31
nice comparing retardo... map just started already 880k will be more than 1.3m easily if we get 3rd map and it's close.
2018-09-23 19:44
spoiler alert: it wont go past 1.3m
2018-09-23 19:47
On steam tv you can spectate each person. On youtube maybe it just runs better for them.
2018-09-23 19:20
Youtube is better than twitch IMO

youtube chat: !drop !drop !drop !drop !drop !drop !drop !drop !drop !drop !drop !drop !drop twitch chat actually reacts to what is happening in game.
2018-09-23 19:48
Yeah I watch twitch because of the chat but yt as a streaming service is better Imo. For some reason youtube is always like 2-3 seconds further and you can replay good moments

In YT i can actually turn the chat off due to the insignificance of it existing there. yt runs smoother for me, the major stream always buffered with 220d/25u on twitch - and only for the faceit channel. 1080p looks sharper imo , might be placebo though

Hello Asdasfasf123 from Europe, By the way there is around 1 million people watchin on GOTV.
2018-09-23 19:49
Hello Krafko from Slovakia Unfortunately you have misunderstood the GOTV counter. It shows twitch (and youtube?) AND gotv viewers combined

2018-09-23 19:19
well it is for general statistic purpose. If twitch viewcount is high then you can generally assume how popular the major is

700-800k in semis. It should be 700-800k in the finals.
2018-09-23 19:07
Stupid boe, you do realize half the people that watched on twitch are on steam.tv now?
2018-09-23 19:32
still not 1.8 million viewers (not even close) we used to have that 1 year ago
2018-09-23 19:32
So by your logic: Not at its peak = dead/dying?
2018-09-23 19:34
when did i say it was dying? just stating a fact that the popularity has taken a huge hit (and will probably continue falling)
2018-09-23 19:35

2018-09-23 18:58
yea great, also the game with probably the most cheaters in it as well. cs is ass and valve doesn't care whatsoever

probably it was all hype and no announcment is coming :)
2018-09-23 19:38
There will be a huge changes in the game, cuz other company is creating a similar game as CS:GO and Valve has to make drastic changes in the game because of that so they can be better.
2018-09-23 19:53
huh? which company? Did I miss something? :D
