Faceit has revealed that the finals of their Esports Championship Series (ECS) Season 6 is the most-watched CS:GO livestream on YouTube, hitting a peak of 233,950 concurrent viewers in English.
3.2 million hours were watched, and the press release says these figures are a testament to the success of the partnership between Faceit and YouTube, which has been in place since last year.
"We're constantly working with YouTube to bring our fans the best possible viewing experience and to see that effort reflected in such phenomenal viewing figures is extremely rewarding," said Michele Attisani, CBO and co-founder of Faceit. "The ever increasing ECS viewership proves the immense strength of YouTube as an esports viewing platform and we're excited to keep building that audience together. We're continually developing new ways to engage with our viewers such as the loot drop system we introduced in Season 4."
If you need reminding, Astralis lifted the ECS trophy in Arlington, USA, but was it the best ECS finals ever?
