Numbers you can count on

Viewership statistics in esports have always been a topic for heated debate. We recognize our responsibility and strive to unite all participants to standardize metrics across the industry. Therefore, we hold our data to the highest standards and provide full transparency in regards to our methodology.

Useful metrics for most scenarios.

icon
Average Viewers (AMA or ACCV)

Average number of viewers at the same time over the entire duration of the broadcast

This provides a strong indication of a broadcast’s popularity as it takes into account both how many people clicked on the stream and how long they kept watching it. Oftentimes, this number provides better insight than the number of views.

icon
Peak Viewers (PCV)

The highest value of viewers watching a broadcast at a specific moment in time

The viewer peak helps you understand how much attention the biggest moments generated. High numbers compared to the average indicate that the broadcast was successful at drawing the community in when things got exciting.

icon
Hours Watched (HW)

The sum of all broadcast hours consumed by everybody who tuned in

This is a great metric to gauge a broadcast’s quality, as in how long it kept its viewers engaged. If the ratio between average viewers and hours watched is skewed towards the latter, it indicates that people kept watching for a long time.

Evaluation

Our service allows you to track and measure the performance of your partnerships through an independent third party. In addition to general viewership metrics, there is one crucial topic: logo recognition. We can analyze the visibility of any brand in a highly granular manner, taking into account how many people were watching the stream when a logo was visible as well as its placement and size – with over 20 metrics, including media value.

This enables you to approach esports sponsorships with the same analytical mindset that you apply to your other marketing channels.

Essential metrics for logo recognition include:

icon
Logo Air Time

The total amount of time the logo has been visible during the broadcast

When compared to a broadcast’s entire air time, this metric helps you understand how visible your logo placements have been. It is unrelated to the number of viewers, focusing on the quality of the integration instead.

icon
Logo Average Unique Viewers

The average number of viewers whenever the logo was visible

This number indicates how many people were watching whenever your logo was visible and allows you to measure the reach of your logo placements. This is an essential metric for performance evaluation and benchmarking.

icon
Media Value

Estimated monetary value of the brand exposure when compared to traditional advertising

We can calculate the hours watched specifically for the time when your logo was visible in the broadcast. Taking into account the size and position of the logo, we can then estimate the monetary value of the logo integration.

Player Popularity

Are you looking to properly understand a player’s impact – not only on the server but also in the eyes of the audience?

We can provide detailed insights all the way up to how many hours any individual player has been watched. This service uses the same advanced technology that we apply to logo recognition.

As of now, this special feature is up and running for Counter-Strike: Global Offensive but we can implement it for any discipline of your liking.

icon
Engagement Insights

Our analytics extend to Twitch’s chat activity. How engaged was the audience at different points of the broadcast, and what was the content of their messages?

We can provide information about the sentiment as well as keywords directly tied to your brand, or even the most popular emotes.

This helps you to look beyond just the numbers and truly understand the marketing impact of your spending.
