League of Legends, Just Chatting, and Among Us maintain their top three statuses
Last week, League of Legends held onto the top spot even with fewer matches being played during the 2020 World Championship as the event heads into the Semi-Finals this upcoming weekend. The Just Chatting category continues to grow in Q4 gaining a substantial amount of viewership and climbing closer to League of Legends. Among Us rounds out the top three with a sizeable gap between the fourth spot. The party game is still riding its trend, making its way into mainstream media as the likes of Congresswomen Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez and Ilhar Omar will be playing Among Us on stream with popular streamers Tuesday evening (Oct. 20).
Top Growing Titles:
- Mobile Legends: Bang Bang rocketed into the top ten with an increase of 83% in hours watched. The game also recorded a peak audience of 1.5M viewers – a 415% growth from last week!
- Minecraft increased its hours watched by 27% last week, the second consecutive week with growth.
- Fortnite grew 6% in total hours watched while boasting a peak concurrency that increased by the same percent. Epic Games’ prized possession is still going strong heading into Q4 2020.
Top Declining Titles:

- Call of Duty: Modern Warfare fell 6% last week but looks to bounce back with the release of new Halloween cosmetics and limited-time game modes.
- Garena Free Fire declined 3% in hours watched but remains relatively stable retaining the fourth overall spot on the list.
