Age of Empires taking over Twitch

Postby  Wololo_Warrior » Sun Mar 19, 2017 6:36 pm

It was mentioned in other topics that Age of Empires was growing in popularity at a rate faster than Twitch which was a little amazing, but seeing Age of Empires II on the home page of Twitch is a little mind-blowing!

Competing with:
Rocket League - Released 2015 - Approx 15 million Active players
League of Legends - Released 2009 - Approx 60 million Active players

Age of Empires II - Released 1999 - Approx 50k - 100k Active players?
:D


Kudos to everyone doing their bit for the betterment of the games + community in general.

A lot of times when EscapeGaming is streaming it is being highlighted on Twitch' main page, any idea why? It's not like it's the stream with the most views because even LoL alone has 10 channels with more viewers

Its cleary an estimation and knowing that Sunday evenings have a voobly and HD combined 10k players, not a bad guess.

HD has 300k+ unique players over the past two weeks. Dunno if voobly offers the same statistics but I imagine they'd have 10k+

Hd includes single players too, but i think between 20-30% probably play multiplayer. It's hard to know for sure though.

About viewer numbers, I think we had 3,800 at peak on Sunday

Before years ago the system how streams got to front page was actually ''random''. Nowadays you need some kind of deal with twitch (send message of important even etc.) same how wsvg, wic final streams made to frontage.

considering after 1-2million copies sold only 300 000 people had even played a multiplayer game i think thats overestimation. My prediction would be at around 5-10%
