Of course, there is other content on Twitch besides games, but when it comes to recordings, that is to be expected in video games. Streamer TheGrefg literally broke the audience record, but you probably don’t even know it.
David “TheGrefg” Martinez is Twitch Streamer is the new record holder for most viewers on Twitch. Ninja held the old record for just one streamer, but TheGrefg broke the over 600,000 viewers not by a few thousand, not even by a few hundred thousand, but over 1.8 million.
The new record is over 2.4 million (via TwitchTracker), but TheGrefg didn’t beat the toughest boss in video game history or win a few million dollars in an esports tournament. He presented his own Fortnite skin with the Epic Games immortalized it in the popular Battle Royale. Although the stream is about Fortnite, it hasn’t really played.
The million dollar had already cracked two Twitch channels before. On the one hand, the official PlayStation channel and ELEAGUE TV, an e-sport tournament channel. These are hard to compare with individuals and their chains, which hasn’t stopped TheGreg from leaving them miles behind.
“Why don’t I know this streamer?”
TheGrefg is a Spanish streamer and therefore little known in Germany. In this country, channels broadcast in German or English are more likely to be watched. But since Spanish is spoken in over 20 countries, and there are nearly half a billion people who speak Spanish, there was hardly a shortage of potential viewers for the recording.
It will be the skin of 16 January 2021 in the Fortnite store to buy, there will also be an emote. The bundle with cosmetics is between 2000 and 3000 V-Bucks fresh. The skin is part of the Icon series in which skins from Ninja, Loserfruit and Lachlan have also appeared.
