Huh? What's this?
I run Fuzic - which collects statistics and rankings of StarCraft II live streams - and these threads are a summary of the viewer numbers for the past month.
Data is sourced from fuzic, and additional up-to-date stats may be found there. But in these threads - which I will try to post at the beginning of every month - there will be a monthly summary so you can get a quick overview of that month's viewer numbers.
- Winter has topped the charts for about as long as we can remember, but was dethroned this month by Korean YouTube stream 인피쉰 (which translates to "Infinite", according to Google). I don't really know what this stream is about, so if anyone knows who this is or what they stream please share in the replies below!
- Averages are on the low side, which is probably because of Twitch's new-ish rebroadcasting feature. Rebroadcasts typically draw less viewers, but still add up over a longer time, meaning peak and VxH stay high while averages decrease.
- PiG has been on a slow but steady rise the past few months, slowly gaining viewers and ending up at #4 in November. Winter is still a ways off, but he's quite close to Honor in terms of viewers right now, competing for that #2 (or #3, with Infinite's appearance) spot.
- Top events are the usual suspects: obviously topped by WCS, which peaked at 98k, 30k below last year's finals. The amount of ZvZs probably didn't help in that regard... HomeStory Cup, SHOUTCraft Kings and WESG make up the rest of the top spots.
- As always, suggestions and requests are welcome!
The rankings list any stream that is reported on by the APIs of the various streaming services (Twitch, Azubu, etc). I have no way of verifying to what extent someone's viewers are legitimate, and therefore will not independently ban someone from the rankings. Please do not start a(nother) discussion about this in this thread.
"VxH", or "hours viewed" is the average amount of viewers multiplied by the amount of hours the streamer has streamed during that month. Basically, if for each viewer you count the amount of hours they watched the stream during the month, and add them up, you get this number. The list is sorted by this metric, as it gives a good impression of the streamer's activity through the month.
You can click the links below the charts for additional stats and a list you can sort by whichever metric you prefer.
(Full ranking - note that these include streams in which events were streamed, and the above ranking does not)
