July is traditionally considered to be as a quiet month in the world of the gaming industry and esports. But the streaming is much more active and flexible. Welcome to the monthly Esports Charts Twitch report.
Fortnite and League of Legends continue to steadily hold the first two positions. We expected a major change in July due to PUBG Global Invitational, but the miracle did not happen. PUBG took 4th position, but the Royal Battle from BlueHole could not take the third place, as IRL section appeared to be more popular. Due to The International 2018, Dota 2 is likely to overtake PUBG and IRL in August, so the situation for BlueHole is far from the best.
CS:GO became more popular due to a series of tournaments, including the Europe Minor Championship - London 2018 and ELEAGUE CS:GO Premier 2018. Heroes of the Storm and Starcraft 2 also hosted a series of massive championships: the HGC 2018 series in HotS and the WCS Valencia 2018 in Starcraft 2.
World of Warcraft grown because of the pre-patch before the release of the new add-on Battle for Azeroth, which will release in August. Rainbow Six: Siege held a tournament DreamHack Valencia 2018, which attracted many viewers. Dead by Daylight received new content that brought new players. The same applies to Wreckfest, Minecraft, Warframe and especially No Man's Sky, which received huge free expansion named NEXT.
Something bad happened with Realm Royale — it took the last place in our top. That is why we can suggest that the game develops in the wrong direction. Let’s what the creators will do in the near future.
