  • Brave viewership on Twitch once again exceeded 100 million hours in the second week since the start of closed beta;
  • This is mainly due to the way beta access is granted and the unusual practices of streamers.
  • On the platform above, you will find many “24/7” broadcasts that broadcast replays of past games instead of real-time gameplay.

It’s been two weeks since closed beta testing of Valorant, a new online shooter from Riot Games, began. On our website, we wrote how the controversial method of giving willing players access to the beta helped break the record for total Twitch viewers. Over and above, 14 days after the release of the production, its popularity on the said platform is still admirable.

Second week in a row brave By Undress more than 100 million hours watched (we quote from the website The Esports Observer). The Just Chatting and League of Legends categories came in second and third respectively (both “just” surpassed the 30 million hour mark).

Of course, in the case of Valorant, the word “viewed” is a gross misuse. As a reminder, to access the closed beta, you must connect your Riot account to Twitch and watch the chosen streamer. Many people just start the program in the background, hope for luck and do not pay attention to what is happening on the screen. Others, on the other hand, create multiple accounts, increasing the number of viewers and their chances of entry. Such strong interest in the game (or the beta drops themselves) chose to use streamers with rather unusual practices for this platform.

Among them were mainly “live” broadcasts 24 hours a day, 7 days a week. In this case, the term “live broadcast” can be questioned, since most of the time live broadcasts are simply replays of previous games, not true real-time gameplay. There is currently no interaction with the streamer, but the viewer still has an opportunity to access the Valorant beta. For the streamers themselves, this is an ideal situation – you don’t have to do much and the stats go up.

This method is most commonly used by larger streamers, which has caused a lot of controversy in our own backyard lately. However, it is worth mentioning that every Valorant live stream has been offering the possibility to stop access to the beta for some time (regardless of the streamer), and the capacity of the game servers has been increased by 25%.

However, what is much more interesting, some time ago there was information that two hours of viewing is enough braveto count for a drop, which you can get even when you are offline (it is unknown if prolonged viewing increases this chance). However, it seems that even those interested in beta access are not aware of it, and streamers are reluctant to mention it (for obvious reasons). 24/7 Broadcast itself in no way violates the Twitch Terms of Service. The question of whether such practices and the manner in which access to testing is granted is in order is for you to decide.

  • Official Valorant website
  • A few hours with Valorant and I found online FPS fun again
  • Low requirements and no cheats – Valorant is a screwball shooter from the makers of LoL
