2022 is coming to an end and with it, a year full of twists and turns on Twitch. In general, since confinement, Amazon’s streaming platform has experienced a huge increase in interest from Internet users, to the point of allowing the streamers who gather the most to reach spectacular audiences. To take stock of 2022, the StreamCharts site, which publishes statistics regarding streaming both on Twitchwhich on Facebook Gaming, YouTube and other platforms, unveiled the ranking of the most watched streamers of 2022. Before revealing the top, know that the latter is calculated according to the number of spectators per hour watched.
Without too many surprises, American streamers dominate the rankings, with four out of ten content creators. Among them, we find tarik (9th place), Trainwreck (8th place), Asmongold (7th place), the famous streamer specialized in World of Warcraft and who recently tried out Final Fantasy XIV and finally hasanabi in fifth place. Just before him, we find in sixth position SHAKA, a Japanese streamer and the only representative of the Asian continent in the ranking. On the European side, we find the German Elias Nerlich in 10th place and the Spaniards Auron in fourth place and Ibai in third. This name surely means something to you since it was against his team that Amine had organized a football match between France and Spain during the Eleven All-Stars. An event that followed the rivalry between the two countries during the famous Reddit Pixel War that we summarize for you just below. But in 2022, the latter above all reached a new live viewer record with 2.3 million spectators gathered for a boxing match.

Finally, the top of the rankings is between two streamers who are really above the fray in terms of number of viewers this year. In second place, we find Gaules, a Brazilian streamer who gathered 161.33 million viewers in front of his channel in 2022 through his 8,765 hours and 55 minutes broadcast on Twitch. If this record is already impressive, the number 1 of the top is even more above the lot. If it streamed nearly half as many hours as number 2 with 3292 hours and 45 minutes broadcast in 2022, xQc is still the most viewed streamer of 2022 with 244.45 million viewers on its channel this year. Impressive figures but which represent the popularity of the creator of Canadian content.
In 2022, the former competitive Overwatch player who was known for his Winston has been talked about a lot. Recently, we remember that he had bet €600,000 on the victory of France against Argentina during the Football World Cup in Qatar, an astronomical sum which he therefore lost suddenly. In October, the latter had alerted to the harassment that streamers suffer at TwitchCon, the convention dedicated to Amazon’s streaming platform. But the young Canadian has also been talked about for more… amazing escapades. We remember that he had pretended to sniff the chair of Pokimane, the No. 1 streamer on Twitch or even that he had bought a car for $ 300,000 in the name of his girlfriend … when he did not didn’t have the license and that they have since separated.
