The return of LoL sees Call of Duty: Modern Warfare drop to second place, and it also saw a 17.8 per cent dropoff in views last week. The dropoff could be caused by streamers returning to other titles after a CoD stint. 

Fortnite is in third and sees a 17.7 per cent rise in views, hitting 28.9 million hours watched. The rise of Fortnite's views could also be responsible for a proportion of CoD's loss.
