Fortnite reigns supreme for another week, but another six per cent drop means there are only 2 million views between the battle royale and League of Legends.  Last week, there were four million views between the two games.

A new battle royale contender enters the chart at number three this week. Call of Duty: Black Ops 4 is demanding the attention of streamers right now, knocking PUBG back down to fourth place. 

Dota 2 is back up in fifth with a 22 per cent increase in views, swapping places with World of Warcraft. Hearthstone is back up in seventh place with a 58 per cent increase in views this week, presumably spurred by the HCTFall championship.

Overwatch is closing the charts for a second week with a tiny 4.9 per cent increase in views.
