Fall Guys Twitch Rivals: stats, viewership, number of spectators
Ephemeral success, the Mediatonic party game? This Friday’s Twitch Rivals proved otherwise. A month after its official release, Fall Guys is still gathering crowds on the streaming platform for its first steps in a competitive format.
Almost four weeks after its global launch, Fall Guys still boasts a head-turning viewership on Twitch. While the first Twitch Rivals devoted to fashionable party games took place on Friday evening, the number of simultaneous spectators happily crossed the 700,000 mark. Fall Guys thus outclassed CS: GO, LoL and Fortnite, the three heavyweights usual streaming platform, which gathered barely 200,000 viewers over the period.
Slasher’s phrase about Fall Guys, “world’s # 1 esport” may not be ironic for very long.

Indeed, these Twitch Rivals were closely or remotely akin to the first major esports event centered on Fall Guys. And even ! It only invited streamers based in North America, in an online format that was still in its infancy. Certainly, many tenors of the NA stream game were there (Tyler1, drlupo, Nickmercs …), but their mere presence is far from explaining the colossal figure of 700,000 spectators. The origins of many viewers here went far beyond American borders. Because it has to be said: Fall Guys is incredibly entertaining to watch.
Both to admire the tricks used by the best players and to laugh at the bowls of the less good: even without knowing the competitors, the show was worth it. And even if at the time of this writing, esports structures are still cautious about advancing their pawns on the Mediatonic game (only the NA Panda Global team has formalized a roster on the game), the phenomenon – which is starting to grow. to be competitive – is there.
