DH Cluj drew 25 million viewers

DreamHack Open Cluj-Napoca had a unique viewership figure of over 25 million, the Swedish company has revealed.

The final major of 2015 came to a close on November 1, with EnVyUs scooping the top prize of $100,000 after seeing off Natus Vincere 2-0 in the grand final of the tournament.

Over the course of the event, there were over 85 million sessions across all streaming platforms, and over 25 million unique viewers tuned in, making it the second most watched CS:GO event of all time, behind ESL One Cologne, which had a global audience of 27 million people.


DH Open Cluj was the second most watched CS:GO event of all time

Viewership peaked during the final day of the event, when almost 1 million people were watching the streams simultaneously.

"Cluj-Napoca will be one of the most memorable CS:GO and event experiences in esports history," DreamHack Business Development Director Tomas Lyckedal said in a statement.

"As we go forward, we’ll see this event as a milestone event in both DreamHack’s and PGL’s development."

Below you can find the viewership numbers in detail, provided by DreamHack:

  • Views/started streams: 85,083,044
  • Unique views/visitors: 25,090,086
  • Hours watched: 30,837,479
  • Peak concurrent viewers: 985,052

I'm sure they counted everything they could, just to beat ESL's majors. But that didn't happen.

Guess that's true, but I don't think that all the websites were willing to provide the information they needed.

Both ESL and Dreamhack are under that swedish company as I know,so there is no reason for this

i would say atleast half were accounts for drops, i would say 8-12.5 mill would be a reasonable amount of unique. obviously im just guessing here but csgo only has 700k players, lol nt And btw they are not lying, its just difficult to know how many "unique viewers" were actually "unique"
2015-11-23 19:17
CSGO has far more than 700k players. That's just the highest concurrent users. Tons of players play only once or twice a week.

25,090,086 7,090,086 - Real viwers/fans 10,000,000 - Just open this stream on twitch cuz they see so many ppl watching this shit ? 3,000,000 - Bots and multiacc for more drop ?? 5,000,000 - ppl who watch the stream from TV/Mobile etc that's all
2015-11-23 19:25
People fail to realize that you dont have to be a csgo player to watch a major. I stopped playing Lol and sc2 a few years back yet i still watch some of the events. Also its featured on the twitch homepage so any random user can check it out for a few minutes then turn it off, but theyll still be a unique viewer.
2015-11-23 19:25
lol... I was 1 of maybe 5 out of my 250 people on my friends list, who watched the grand final. Was fucked. Wasn't a bad major but the finals were so underwhelming.. And dat crowd.. Romanian's are so poor they cant even afford hype.

While they have no idea about balancing and keeps pulling out weird updates out of their ass I really wish CSGO would expand but Valve is not doing it right

Problem was 1. This Major occurred in a hurry. It was announced like a month before it happened compared to other majors 2. Too short of a gap between this Major and the previous one.

Hold on there. Unique viewers are probably due to Dreamhack stream being on front page of twitch. Let's be realist there. There's no way that many people (or bots) watched CS:GO major.

I don't understand how does the crowd affect the viewers experience but whatever. I don't remember anybody talking shit about the crowd in Cologne when they were booing at Fnatic. At least the Romanians know how to behave themselves and not go crazy over a fucking video game. The amount of hypocrisy and plain stupidity of this community is mind blowing. We know how much the community affected LoL. Are we going to allow the same type of retards destroy the CS community as well?
