Ever heard of an out of nowhere success? Well, when you get 15 million daily viewers and more than 100 visitors a month, you get to say that. In case you didn’t know what I’m talking about, Twitch is our subject of interest today. The platform allows gamers to connect and show off their skills while trying to teach the newbies how it’s done. However, can you just follow anyone? No, that’s why this guide will feature the top Twitch streamers of 2020 that you should take a look at.
Here’s a quick look at the Twitch streamers we’ll be covering below:
Twitch – The Dawn of Game Streaming
If you’re familiar with Amazon, you would know what Amazon Prime Video is right? Yeah, it’s one of the biggest streaming platforms in the world. However, Amazon expanded its service for individuals that are interested in a specific genre not well-known to be on TV, I’m not talking about Ready Player One guys.
Amazon got Twitch and turned it the worldwide phenomenon it is today. The platform is designed to include content such as eSports sports tournaments, personal streams of individual players, and gaming-related talk shows. There’s that one specific thing that caught my attention. Twitch respects its audience, which is proven when they inform you if the video is suitable for your age or not. Here’s what you get before you get to stream a video that has adult language.
Twitch saw the light back in 2011 and it focused strictly on video game streaming. You can watch the best tournaments and matches whether they’re “live” or on demand.
It’s the perfect opportunity for games to upload their content and games for others to watch, learn, or imitate their game style based on how influenced the get by their skills. Many have found success on the site similar to top famous YouTube gaming personalities.
I’m not being biased or anything, I’m just stating my experience on the website. I’m a Dota 2 fan. Twitch has made so easy to watch live games from all around the world, I even found some games in Russian, didn’t understand a thing but hey, they were good at what they do. Not only that, some players give you tutorials on how to use a hero and what items to get him, which is mostly what you need if you’re just starting a game.
Best Twitch Streamers of 2020
So, the real question lies when we ask about which one is the best Twitch streamer? I’m sorry no one can answer that. Although some might have more followers than the others, we can’t judge based on that fact only. Each streamer targets a specific audience. Some of us like to watch videos about Fortnite, while others are League of Legends fans (Not me though).
Each Twitch streamer has a type of content that’s needed by certain people. So, being the best doesn’t depend on how many followers you earn. Oh, by the way, some of the streamers are actually funny while playing, which makes watching their videos even more satisfying. With that said, here are the top Twitch Streamers that you need to follow for a better gaming experience.
