Biggest Twitch Channels Going Into 2021


If you thought 2020 was a big year for Twitch, things are just getting started. Below, we’re talking all about the biggest Twitch Channels going into 2021. 

Twitch is the largest online streaming platform, despite the growth of YouTube Gaming and Facebook Gaming. It’s home to casual gamers, esports professionals, music channels, and even people who stream under the wide net of Just Chatting. You can find almost anything on Twitch and it’s wide appeal has contributed to the success of its personalities and channels.

This time last year, according to reports, Twitch reportedly has 15 million daily users and over 3 million broadcasters. That might sound like a lot, but only 27,000 of those 3 million broadcasters have Twitch Partner status. Twitch Partner status is earned by those channels looking to continue to professionalise their Twitch Channels and is home to some of the biggest and best of them. The question remains, however, on which Twitch Channel is the biggest channel?

13. Riot Games – 5.0 million followers

Riot Games have two of the hottest competitive titles under their belt as a development team; League of Legends and Valorant remain two of the most-streamed titles on Twitch and it makes sense that their own Twitch Channel, mainly used to re-broadcast esports tournaments, is as popular as it is.

It almost goes without saying, but Tyler Blevins is still at the top of the game. Using his online alias, Ninja, Blevins is undeniably behind the biggest Twitch Channel going into 2021.

Much like Shroud, he too moved to Mixer for a period but this did little to harm his continued growth.
