League of Legends has been consistently the largest esports environment for quite some time and the Worlds tournament has been the capitalization of esports success as a whole. The event peaked with over 5,000,000 viewers with the highest match being the grand finals and peaking at 5.1 million viewers.
Twitch would see the most traffic with almost 3 million of the concurrent viewers tuning in to the official live stream. YouTube would gather nearly 2,000,000 peak viewers through Co streamers and watch parties. The combination of all these platforms, including the variety of language-based streams, would push the Worlds 2022 event into breaking its record of four million concurrent viewers set in 2021.
DRX would overcome T1 to will this year’s Worlds event after what could only be described as a miracle run to the top for DRX. We hope the best to the teams that were involved and are excited to see what will happen next year!
