Today, SK Telecom T1 and G2 Esports broke records for the 2019 League of Legends World Championship in the semifinal match. According to the Esports Charts information website, LCK’s first seed was clocked at 3,1985M peak competitive audience in the decisive game of the series–a fantastic game 4, which saw G2 come out from behind.
The figure is not just the highest world perspective, but also for all sports. The Fortnite World Cup is second, but it’s an incredible difference— only 2.3M. With 2.1 M, Worlds 2017 is third.
That being said, the Fortnite World Cup is still beating Worlds by average competitors in 2019 (1.14 M to 958 M), although it is cautious that FNWC was an action-packed three-day event and Worlds 2019 a tournament marathon that features several slow days, including the whole playoff stage.
The 2019 Worlds are also likely to increase because the great final left is still to be played. Whilst many people viewed SKT vs. G2 as the final before the final, the end of the tournament on November 10 is sure to draw a crowd as the Western team has finally taken the Cup for the first timewO
