Eleague's Second 'CS:GO' Major Sets New Twitch Record
The Eleague's second CS:GO Major happened in Boston last weekend, and it set a new Twitch record for single channel peak concurrent streams, the organization announced today.
The grand final on Sunday generated a peak of over 1.1 million Twitch viewers. Eleague says it surpassed the previous record set during the Major Grand Final last year. Sunday's broadcast also had more than 1.4 million concurrent streams across all digital platforms globally. Eleague TV was the most-watched channel during both the New Legends and New Champions stages of the Major, outperforming all other programming on Twitch over that period.
Sunday's Grand Final featured Cloud9 taking on FaZe Clan. It ended with Cloud9 becoming the first American team to capture a Major Championship.
