One of the advantages live streaming content has over traditional media is the ability to interact with content in real time.

  • The Overwatch League channel generated the most PogChamps: The emote was used 16.7k more times on the Overwatch League channel than the combined value of the Riot Games and ESL_CSGO channels.
  • CS:GO Fans were the most active PogChampers and LuLers: Of the 74.6k messages sent in our sample, 41% were generated by viewers on the ESL CS:GO’s channel.
  • Esports and LuL are synonymous: The LuL emote was mentioned 3.5k more times by 2.7k more chatters than the PogChamp emote.

It’s a very humbling experience,” said Evans. “Women actually got me through this — a lot of my friends who play 2K with me.
