Twitch Rivals: Summer 2020

Twitch has always supported the esports activities and the interaction between streamers. Actually, this is the main idea of Twitch Rivals events.

Today we'll talk about the results of summer competitions, and we'll see which discipline has collected the biggest amount of viewers.

The first event is Twitch Rivals COD Warzone Showdown 2, which was held on June 24 in Europe and North America.

North America is leading because of participants and the overall popularity of the discipline in this region - 258K viewers at the peak.

The most popular streamer of the event is Nickmercs; he's a Warzone top-1 on Twitch. 74K viewers watched his channel at the peak. Timthetatman and DrDisrespect are behind him - 37K and 32K viewers accordingly. 

The official Twitch Rivals channel is only in the 4th position, and it has collected 31K Peak VIewers. The winners of North America are Symfuhny, HusKerrs, and Priestahh.

The audience of North America was only English-speaking, but the situation is different in Europe. 

Mithrain from Turkey, Pow3rtv from Italy, French Gotaga, and Spanish streamer Flexz hosted their broadcasts, which led to such diversity of the audience. Twitch Rivals became the most popular broadcast in that region. EU has collected 162K viewers at the peak in total, and its champions are Recrent, Ubica, and OfficialSmithTV.

But this wasn't the last Warzone event by Twitch. One month later, on July 13-14, we've seen new Twitch Rivals CoD Warzone Showdown 3 in the same regions.

Twitch Rivals CoD Warzone Showdown 3 was on air for a little less than previous tournaments and collected 17K people less at the peak of the broadcast. But it still remains more popular than the official Call of Duty league.

Top-5 North American broadcasts by Peak Viewers belong to independent streamers. Nickmercs again holds the leading position - 75K viewers at the peak. The next one is Timthetatman, but his gap with Nick concluded 33K viewers. The rest belong to Symfuhny, Huskerrs, and Tfue. Twitch Rivals channel collected only 22K viewers.

The European region has gathered 106K peak viewers less, but it again showed off with the distinction by languages, which was changed because of the new participants. French people made the biggest contribution to the total number of Hours Watched - 21,9%.
