- Korean streamer 초승달 enters at #5. This seems to be a general streamer that just decided to play SC2 for a few days... but apparently she has quite a following!
- Events-wise May was a month for the usual suspects - GSL and WCS. The Copa Americana playoffs did well too, especially on the first day with 18k viewers, but overall this month was nothing out of the ordinary.
- The trend continues downwards, but proportionally with what happened a year ago; compare to 2017, viewership is still stronger, and if things continue to follow this pattern we'll see a rise again next month.
- Given the success of these Korean streamers, I've updated things so that Hangul characters are displayed correctly now
- As always, suggestions and requests are welcome!
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.
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)
