During the ESET UK Masters, record breaking numbers were recorded on the Twitch TV channel, with over 20,000 concurrent viewers watching 225,861 hours of StarCraft II: Heart of the Swarm multiplayer. Again, bloody hell, that’s a lot of StarCraft II.

“The ESET UK Masters has once again proven to be a tremendous success, drawing unprecedented numbers via Twitch and live at Insomnia48 itself,” Said Quinton Watts, VP Marketing and Sales, ESET. “It’s clear from the high turn-out, community support and intense excitement levels that things are going to get better and better for eSports in the UK.”
