At the end of the ranking season, Jean Mago, a 16-year-old Brazilian player, went for fulfilling his goal of becoming #1 on his server. The process of progressing to the top in the season’s last days was streamed on his personal channel – which became the most popular across the Portuguese-language segment in the second week of November thanks to the efforts of the game’s community.
How did this happen? At the end of League of Legends ranking season, a certain goal was set by the Brazilian player Jean Mago: to keep the Brazilian’s server’s top spot until the end of game’s competitive esports year. The sixteen-year-old cyberathlete has already managed to get the top spot of the League of Legends’ Challenger rank, which, however, was followed by multiple occasions of him losing the spot to others.
MEU RUSH FINAL FOI ATRAPALHADO ESSE ANO PELA ZIKA DOS GADOS ENTAO MINHA ENERGIA VAI PARA @jeanmagolol . O YODISMO ESTÁ COM VOCÊ IRMAO. TE VEJO ANO QUE VEM NOS CAMPOS DA JUSTIÇA.
The hype around this topic originally started with a tweet from the popular Brazilian streamer YoDa, who sent both his regards and his subscribers to the young talent. Immediately after the tweet, the idea was supported by Brazilian viewers, who in turn allowed the hype to reach the local teams and popular personalities.
The teams of international fame (such as Cloud9) along with analysts and commentators (such as Sjokz) further fueled the fires of hype. It should be added that C9 ended up alarming the entire Twitter by literally spamming over the responses of many users. In the end, the player was supported even by the official esports Twitter page of League of Legends.
Each next hour saw more and more people spreading the link to Jean’s stream. As such, by November 8th his stream gathered 12 thousand peak viewers. This was not the end of the hype surrounding the player’s stream, seeing how the next day the channel hit the mark of 168 thousand peak viewers.
As a result, the player was able to achieve his goal and finished the ranked season while occupying the top spot. Such an achievement grants him the title of the strongest player of Brazil’s 10th ranked season. According to Jean himself, these incredible few days were by far the best in his life.
The social component is quite important for the Twitch platform itself. Alongside the Brazilian player’s story, another story became known – that of the streamer Fivers, who was engaged in zero-viewers broadcasting for over a year.
Once his story was heard, his channel surpassed the mark of one thousand subscribers, while the latest broadcast had 116 peak viewers. During it, the streamer got everyone’s advice on the ways of expanding the number of viewers and improving the content.
