Viewership figures for the ESL One Malaysia 2022 qualifiers
The Europe/CIS closed qualifier had the highest statistics, with 1 million Hours Watched, 43K Average Viewers, and 86K Peak Viewers. Southeast Asia closed qualifier came in a close second with some strong figures at OKBET ESL One Malaysia. Despite having less television time, the event received 42K average viewers, 75K peak viewers, and 820K hours watched.
While South America and North America closed qualifiers produced similar outcomes and had respectable Average Viewership, Peak Viewers, and Hours Watched that were relatively equivalent to Europe/CIS and Southeast Asia closed qualifiers, China closed qualification figures were nowhere near.
Overall, the closed qualifiers had respectable viewing figures, and although none of them had ridiculous Peak Viewers, the most of them had a solid number of Peak Viewers, with only the China closed qualifiers having a relatively low number of just 20K Peak Viewers.
Viewership figures from the most recent ESL Dota 2 LAN tournaments held in Malaysia
It’s been four years since ESL staged a tournament in Malaysia, and the last time they did, they had such a big turnout. Remember that none of these events are in the top 10 ESL Dota 2 tournaments in terms of Average Viewers, Peak Viewers, or Hours Watched.
They do, however, have less airtime than other Dota 2 events that ESL organizes, and with ESL One Genting 2018, the last edition of the tournament, having 3.8 million Hours Watched, 225K Peak Viewers, and 83K Average Viewers, it’s reasonable to conclude that the event will have high audience statistics.
We’ll also see fan favorites like OG and TSM FTX, who were the top two teams in Hours Watched and Average Viewers at the ESL One Stockholm Major 2022, one of the greatest competitions of the year and the eighth largest Dota 2 tournament of all time. The participation of such teams would undoubtedly benefit ESL One Malaysia 2022 in terms of viewership at OKBET.
