Weekly World of Warcraft Classic Twitch viewership tops 55 million hours

In its first full week after launching on Aug. 26, World of Warcraft Classic has taken Blizzard Entertainment’s massively multiplayer online game to heights on Twitch that it, and the platform for that matter, have never seen. Not only has the game generated a massive amount of hype, but its 47.1M hours watched total is more than any game has produced in a week this year or last year. Prior to this past week, there have been five occasions in which a game had generated more than 30M hours watched in 2018 or 2019. Two of those 30M+ weeks came from Dota 2 during The International, one from Fortnite during its prime in the summer of 2018, and the others from Apex Legends during its release in February.

According to Dot Esports, Twitch statistics captured on site Sullygnome have shown that, in the seven day period since WoW Classic’s launch last week, viewing hours for WoW hit the 55 million hours mark. Or, you could read that as about 6,274 years. That is a lot of WoW watching. At the time of writing, the numbers have now changed to just under the 48 million hours mark over the past seven days, with the first day’s numbers now just outside the week-long capture period. In addition, our site 5mmo.com has a large quantity of safe world of warcraft classic gold for sale.

Even some faces who many may not associate with World of Warcraft have decided to take the plunge and check out Classic. Battle Royale fans might be surprised to learn Michael “Shroud” Grzesiek has been enjoying Classic. Recently Shroud even went so far as to praise Asmondgold for being such an entertaining WoW streamer.

If Shroud’s praise of the game and community tells us anything about Classic WoW, it’s that it appeals to a variety of different gamers. One thing that keeps retail WoW from gaining new players is the overwhelming amount of expansions and systems it already has in place. Classic is an opportunity to begin Azeroth’s adventure from the beginning.

According to Twitch Tracker, in the last three months WoW has seen peak viewer counts ranging between 202k and around 244k each month, so the 1.1 million count was a pretty giant increase. August 2018, when WoW expansion Battle for Azeroth launched, saw around 600k peak viewers, according to the site.
