Both concurrent viewers and players records have been broken on day one at ESL One Cologne with the new record set to 257,924 viewers and 227,074 players, respectively.
From the beginning to end of day one at ESL One Cologne, both the viewers' and players' numbers were rising constantly.
Cloud9's Titan upset pushed the numbers over the top with 257,924 concurrent viewers, which - according to Valve - doesn't include duplicate SteamIDs connected to both the stream and GOTV, and 227,074 players.
That means ESL One Cologne's day one broke the viewers' record by 5,036, which was previously set during EMS One Katowice grand final between NiP and Virtus.pro at 252,888.
The concurrent players record previously stood at 194,016 set after a big gameplay-changing update on July 2nd.
There are still three days of ESL One Cologne left, so the numbers can increase even further.
