It's all Fortnite at the top of the chart, but the battle royale behemoth saw a 13.8 per cent dip in views last week, on top of the 23.9 per cent drop it saw the week prior. While the title is still millions of views ahead of everything else, it's dropping views substantially right now.

Minecraft moves up one place to fifth, seeing another rise of 12.5 per cent. PUBG Mobile moves up two places to sixth despite a slight decrease in hours watched. 

Overwatch remains in seventh for another week, and Dota 2 is slowly making its way back up the chart after a 6.9 per cent rise in views
