While the fifth Streamer Bowl may not have been as popular, due to the fact that the last Streamer Bowls were held within the popular game Fortnite, the event still had quite the viewership. With an average of 33,000 viewers and a peak of 41,000 viewers, this event was nothing short of popular.
With multiple creators streaming their POVs, the game held a heavy amount of coverage. Twitch Rivals themselves had quite a successful broadcast, but Tyler1 had the highest peak in viewers on his Twitch channel, reaching just above 10,000 people.
