Most watched channels

Ninja is back on top this week after last week's leader falls from the chart. As the Dota 2 Kuala Lumpur Major draws to a close, the channels covering it begin to experience massive drop-offs.

Twitch streamer Tfue experienced another big leap this week and is now in second place, less than 600k views behind Ninja himself. While 600k is a lot of views, it's barely a fraction of what the Fortnite megastars see each week.

YouTuber Nick Eh 30 is third after a 39 per cent increase in views this week. Fourth place has a new challenger this week - YouTube channel FACEIT. The UK-based channel organises game tournaments and provides coverage of other esports events taking place around the world.

League of Legends name loltyler1 is in fifth this week after a huge 142 per cent burst in views this week. The streamer has had a few weeks off and made his return on November 24th.

Shroud is down to sixth after a 24 per cent decrease in views, closely followed by new entry TaKeTV at number seven. Twitch channel Dota2RUHub is in eighth place, again as a result of Dota 2 coverage trailing off. 

YouTube channel Vietnam Esports TV is a new entry at ninth. The channel is currently focusing on FIFA 119 and experienced a massive 609 per cent leap in views on last week. Lastly, Twitch's CohhCarnage is rounding off the chart this week, and is the only channel in this list that covers Fallout: 76
