Gaules takes the Top Spot on the Streaming Leaderboards
For the first time in 3 consecutive months, xQc has fallen from the #1 spot in the top 10 live streamers of the month, with former CS:GO professional Gaules taking claim to the title. Thanks to a push from the Season 16 Grand Finals of the ESL Pro League, Gaules was able to generate 15.5 million hours watched this month.
October was a busy month for xQc. During the month he caught a case of COVID-19, started a brand new game show, “Juiced,” and moved into a new house. Between all of this, xQc was only able to stream 72 hours in October compared to 260 hours in September. Despite this 72% decrease in airtime, xQc was still able to clinch the second top spot in live streaming in October.
Overwatch 2 pushes Fextralife to #3
Fextralife jumped up 93 spots landing third on this month’s list. During October Overwatch 2 was released and became the most watched FPS game for October. Fextralife also held an Ovewatch 2 marathon during the hype generating 9.7 million of their 10.9 milllion hours watched.
AdinRoss returns to the Top 10
