PUBG has enjoyed a surprising climb up to third place with a 5 per cent increase in views. CS:GO isn't far behind after experiencing a 28 per cent increase in views this week. The CS:GO  Intel Extreme Masters Chicago tournament came to an end this week which could be responsible for the game's surge in views.

Warframe is a surprise entrant this week, with an absolutely whopping 2250 per cent increase in views this week. While we're not completely sure what happened there, the F2P shooter released a new expansion last week and a few big Twitch streamers have picked it up. As of writing, the game is currently the fifth most popular on Twitch.

FIFA19 is number eight this week with a 9 per cent increase in views. Red Dead Redemption 2 has experienced the largest drop in views; the rootin' tootin' adventure has had a 56 per cent decrease in views.

Overwatch is still clinging on to the chart top 10 after a 12 per cent loss in views since last week. Blizzard's FPS multiplayer enjoyed a surge in views last week after announcing a new hero, but interest seems to have settled back down.
