Eyevoree has responded to this article on Twitter with the following statement:

“I didn’t “hit out” against Amouranth. You can ask my community how much I actually bring her up and admire her saying things like ‘she works f**ing HARD’ with her 12/7 schedule. I also think she’s funny and really nice, despite never really catching her stream. […] I was laughing at MYSELF for creating a schedule that was like the worst I could have made for myself. Then I went on to discuss what kind of better schedule I could create. Had nothing to do with Amouranth, whom I like and respect.”

The headline for this piece has been updated to reflect. The original text follows. 

Twitch streamer Eyevoree had a heated moment during a live broadcast in which she appeared to blame Amouranth for dominating ASMR view counts on Wednesdays. 

On October 23, Eyevoree was evaluating the best times to stream in relation to how many potential viewers were available in the ASMR (autonomous sensory meridian response) category on the streaming platform using “Twitchstrike”. 

While looking at a heat map showcasing times throughout the week that are the best times to stream, Eyevoree discovered that she broadcasts during some of the worst times.

“According to this map, I stream at almost the worst times a week to stream ASMR,” she said, clapping with her hands for emphasis. “I stream from 7pm to 10pm on Wednesday, Thursday, Friday.”

On the map, the lighter shade of purple indicated fewer viewers on while a darker shade meant more potential viewers. “I stream when there are the least amount of viewers on Twitch watching ASMR. Does that mean there are no viewers? No.” 

As Eyevoree explained, on Wednesdays at 7 PM there were 82 channels on and only 4000 viewers.

“You know who all those viewers are watching?” Eyevoree asked her chat. “Amouranth. Yeah, Amouranth.” 

Amouranth/InstagramAmouranth dominates Twitch’s ASMR category.

Eyevoree then proceeded to figure out the most optimal times to stream to maximize her view counts, but suggested that competing against Amouranth would be a fool’s errand. 

Kaitlyn ‘Amouranth’ Siragusa is one of Twitch’s most popular stars with over 1.5 million followers. She rose to stardom for her ‘Just Dance’ and ASMR streams since the beginning on the platform in 2016. 

With Amouranth’s massive following overlapping with other ASMR streamers, the competition in the category could be a bit too much to deal with especially for anyone serious about growing their channel. 

Only time will tell if Eyevoree finds a schedule that works for her and avoids competing against superstar streamers such as Amouranth for viewers and subscribers.

Spanish streamer ‘TheGrefg’ has broken Ninja’s world record for most people watching a Twitch stream during the Galactus Fortnite event.

David ‘TheGrefg’ Cánovas made Twitch history while streaming the Galactus event, which marked the end of Fortnite season 4, when he had more people watching him at once than any other individual Twitch streamer ever has in history.

The Spaniard was watching and reacting to the event, and captures appear to confirm that he reached a total of 660,000 people watching his stream at the same time before Twitch unfortunately crashed.

The previous record you might remember was held by Ninja from when he teamed up with rapper Drake, where the duo peaked at 635k viewers at once while playing Fortnite back in 2018.

This insane amount of simultaneous viewers in a broadcast was almost double the figures of the previous record, held by  DrDisrespect — now streaming on YouTube — when he had 338,000 during his return stream in February 2018.

Now, the title for most-watched stream on Twitch now belongs to TheGrefg, and while there are no official figures yet, screenshots and clips definitely seem to indicate the streamer managed to bring in than 660,000 people simultaneously.

Grefg was far from the only streamer posting impressive viewer counts during the Galactus event, which actually “broke” Twitch and caused the site to temporarily crash following the big reveal. This is the big reason why the official viewer count, while definitely impressive, isn’t exactly known just yet.

The event itself officially closed out Fortnite Season 4, with the Season 5 update arriving at 9 PM PT / 12 AM ET / 5 AM GMT on Wednesday, December 2, according to Epic Games, with downtime expected to last all the way up to 1 AM PT / 4 AM ET / 9 AM GMT.

After that, the brand new season will kick off, and Fortnite fans — including Grefg — will get to check out all of the new content. Whether the streamer will be able to repeat his impressive record-breaking feat remains to be seen, but we certainly wish him the best of luck.
