    World of Warcraft Classic is now here and it looks like quite a few fans have already tuned into Twitch to catch some of the new, old-school style WoW in action. Last week concurrent WoW viewers hit a big number on the streaming platform, with over 1.1 million active viewers on Twitch. Now, the total amount of time viewers have spent watching WoW on the platform in the week since Classic released has soared – it’s been over 55 million hours.

    According to a report by The Esports Observer, WoW Classic is on track to take over The International 2019 and post the most watched week during 2019 on Twitch. Dota 2 had 34 million hours watched last week thanks to TI9, which surpassed the record set by Apex Legends in February. Blizzard’s newest release sits in second with 32.7 million hours watched this week, while Apex Legends is the only other game to break through 30 million in 2019. If you want to know where to buy World of Warcraft Classic Boosting, 5mmo.com will be your best choice.

    On top of having 55 million hours watched in barely a week’s time, Classic’s average viewer count has been around 380,000. To put that in perspective that is more similar to a viewer count you would expect to see from Fortnite as a whole or a major League of Legends event. Besides the anticipation from the WoW community, part of the reason for the huge spike could be thanks to some of the names streaming the game.

    If Shroud’s praise of the game and community tells us anything about Classic WoW, it’s that it appeals to a variety of different gamers. One thing that keeps retail WoW from gaining new players is the overwhelming amount of expansions and systems it already has in place. Classic is an opportunity to begin Azeroth’s adventure from the beginning.

    That's a great news. I like games with interesting plot and cool graphic. I found cool high slot machine wins which offers bonuses for new players and decided to try my luck. I've already won a few times.
