Meanwhile, VCT’s highest viewership over the weekend was the PRX vs DRX match which saw 454,107 viewers at its peak. CDL Champs peaked at 294,178 viewers, and OWL’s Midseason Madness at 83,987.

The most insane part of Mobile Legends is this was not even the most watched match of all time, rather only the second. The M4 World Championship match between Blacklist and RRQ saw 4.27 million viewers at its peak. 

And according to Esports Charts, Mobile Legends is by far the most popular esport viewership-wise, with League of Legends trailing behind by two million viewers.
