Although next year, Riot Games will introduce dozens of new games of all genres, but they will definitely not neglect their main card, League of Legends.
So far, no matter how the trend of esports has changed, the game League of Legends has always sought to lead the number of followers. And this still applies to 2019 even though this is the year of auto chess games.
According to statistics from Esports Charts, the 2019 World Championship of the League of Legends game has a peak of more than 3.9 million followers at the same time in the confrontation between SKT T1 and G2 Esports. This figure is far from the Fornite World Cup final, ranking 2nd in the rankings with 2.3 million viewers at the same time. Next is the Free Fire World Series in Rio De Janeiro, Brazil, with 2 million followers at the same time.
Based on the number of watch hours, Worlds 2019 also far exceeds other tournaments. Previously, Worlds 2018 has increased from 83 million watch hours and now Worlds 2019 has 137 million watch hours, an increase of 66%. Meanwhile, The International tournament of Dota 2 has 88 million hours of watch time, 38% more than last year. And then IEM Katowice Major with 53 million hours of viewing and Starladder Major Berlin in the same CS:GO game with 45 million hours of viewing.
However, there is only one item that LoL does not dominate, which is the average number of followers. Accordingly, the new Free Fire World Series tournament topped with 1.1 million average followers. However, the World Championship 2019 also sticks quite well with the 1 million average viewers.
Although next year, Riot Games will introduce dozens of new games of all genres, they will definitely not neglect their main card, League of Legends. If they maintain this form, League of Legends will always be the most popular eSports game in 2020.
