The numbers are in, and the highest viewed streams for Evo 2022 were when Street Fighter 5: Champion Edition and Tekken 7 were on screen, according to the statistics website

The site tracked 10 games, from the aforementioned titles, to Guilty Gear Strive, King of Fighters 15, Dragon Ball FighterZ and more. Here's a breakdown of how each game performed, in terms of peak viewers throughout that weekend.

1. Street Fighter 5 - 250,730
2. Tekken 7 - 250,566
3. Guilty Gear Strive - 201,883
4. King of Fighters 15 - 146,360
5. Mortal Kombat 11 - 95,664
6. Dragon Ball FighterZ - 84,018
7. GranBlue Fantasy: Versus - 69,265
8. Melty Blood Type Lumina - 63,417
9. MultiVersus - 62,351
10. Skullgirls: 2nd Encore - 49,483

No strangers to competition, the fighting game community not only competes in the games we love, but often discuss sales and stream viewership as talking points in how good these games are, which provides an interesting backdrop for these numbers.

Other factors that should be considered when perusing these figures are the amount of air time each game received, and when and where it's main stream time was made available.

For example, each game that was streamed on Sunday ran in its own time slot without any competition, and those games make up the top 4 on this list.

Also, the separation between some of the games on the list is minimal, with the 1st and 2nd place spots being under 200 peak viewers away from one another, and then the 8th and 9th placements, which were only over 1,000 watchers apart.

All in all, these kinds of numbers are wonderful to see for the health of the fighting game community, as they clearly show there's a lot of interest in watching competitions in our scene.
