In the final minutes of the broadcast of the match Brazilian e-Sports team Imperial against Cloud 9, who competed in the PGL Major Antwerp 2022, the Counter-Strike game championship, the live broadcast on the Twitch platform of the influencer Gaules broke the record for the highest number of people in a live simultaneously, with 710 thousand spectators.
Alexandre “Gaules” is a streamera term that designates video game professionals who broadcast live while they play, and has 3.5 million followers on their Twitch channel, the content repository where most of the lives are made.
He beat the record previously set by youtuber Felipe Neto, of 600,000 simultaneous viewers. He had conquered the mark in a broadcast of the game Minecraft, in 2020.
The 710,000 spectators in Gaules are equivalent to about nine full Maracanãs, a stadium that has a maximum capacity of 78,000 people.
