Top 10 streamed games of the week: World of Warcraft thrives as Fortnite continues to dwindle

InfluencerUpdate.biz has teamed up with esports and streaming analytics firm Stream Hatchet to bring you weekly charts of the most popular games in the streaming space.

This chart documents the most-watched games by hours across Twitch, YouTube Gaming, Mixer and Facebook.

Each week we'll be documenting the top ten most-watched titles across all the major streaming platforms so you can see which games are thriving among content creators and which titles are waning in popularity. We also have a chart documenting the week's biggest content creators.

This chart covers the week commencing September 2nd. 

Most-watched games

World of Warcraft presents a welcome change to the top of the chart this week. Despite a 39 per cent drop in views, the MMORPG racked up over 32 million hours watched last week. The release of WoW Classic seems to have brought many content creators back to Azeroth to relive their youth. 

League of Legends takes second following a 17.7 per cent rise in views last week. Riot's MOBA saw over 26.9 million hours watched across streaming platforms last week. 

Fortnite takes third place, and sees another 12 per cent dropoff in views. Views for the leading battle royale have been dwindling since Ninja made his way over to Mixer.
