Arena of Valor World Cup 2021, which can be seen as The International for a mobile MOBA, is just around the corner. But to enter it, the teams had to go through regional qualifications in the form of standalone leagues. Today we will tell you about the performance of events in Taiwan and Taipei, compare their statistics with that of the past events, and find out who will be representing the regions at AWC 2021.
The RoV Pro League 2021 Summer is a Thai league consisting of seven teams. Five teams entered the tournament based on the results of the last season, and Valencia CF eSports and eArena bought their slots at the competition. The pro league has become a full-fledged qualifier for the Arena of Valor World Cup 2021 (in 2020, this global event was replaced by the Arena of Valor Premier League due to the pandemic).
The competition was broadcast on four platforms: YouTube, Facebook, Garena Live, and TikTok. Viewers have shown most preference to the broadcast on the first service: the YouTube broadcast was watched by 127K peak viewers.
Bacon Time became the winners of the tournament, their final match versus Buriram United Esports gathered 175K peak viewers; Bacon Time was also followed by 64K average viewers.
Buriram United Esports was another favorite of the tournament, with 61K average viewers as well as three matches featuring the team getting into the top 5.
Compared to the last season, the peak and average viewers grew by 22.3% and 10.7%, respectively. At the same time, the hours watched only grew by 1.7% since the tournament’s duration decreased by 10 hours. The results of the 2020 winter season were much better, but that’s considering that the tournament’s duration was 35 hours longer.
The Garena Challenger Series Spring 2021 is a league for Taipei, the capital of Taiwan. In total, six teams participated in the battle for $116K. MAD Team became the tournament’s most popular team with 10.7K viewers. However, they took only fourth spot in the tournament, which influenced the overall statistics of the championship.
The encounter between ONE Team and Most Outstanding Player became the most popular match of the event with 26K peak viewers. The ONE Team became the representative of Taipei at AWC 2021, watched by 9.8K viewers. However, the tournament’s own statistics weren’t that good.
The peak viewers indicator has dropped by half compared to summer 2020, due to neither MAD Team nor Hong Kong Attitude making it to the finals – while being some of the most popular Arena of Valor teams in 2020. You can see the drop in the event’s popularity compared to 2019 when the tournament’s final attracted 101K viewers.
The Vietnamese AoV league known as the Arena of Glory Spring 2021 ended on May 9th. Its peak viewers indicator has already exceeded 400K, due to the incredible popularity of the game in this region. In our future report, we will tell you of the performance of the event’s final, as well as the general dynamics of the popularity of the Vietnamese league.
