TWITCH’S BIGGEST STREAMER IS NOT XQC OR NINJA ANYMORE

WHAT HAPPENED?

For roughly the past four years, it has been generally accepted that either xQc or Ninja were the ‘biggest’ or most popular streamers on Twitch.

As of 2022, they’re no longer top dogs – instead, it’s a streamer many English-speaking viewers are not aware of: Auronplay.

In the past 30 days, Auronplay has averaged 112,000 concurrent viewers – miles ahead of second-place Dream with 80,000 (who only streamed once for 3 hours).

In followers, Auronplay has over 12 million, which is second behind Ninja’s 17 million. But, Auron has gained almost 400,000 new followers in the last 30 days, compared with Ninja’s 70,000.

xQc, king of the ‘hours watched’ stat, netted 21.5 million – almost double Auronplay’s 11.3 million. But, xQc streamed 280 hours – well more than double Auronplay’s 101 hours.
