    Anything other than waiting and observing how it turns out is ridiculous.

    Actually...
    Everytime soda streams a game it gets to top 3.
    Don't like the guy but still. Anyway. Stream/twitch say nothing about the game.

    WoW has probably 5M players, but won't hit 2K views unless popular people stream.

    the beta hype is big, limited amount of ppl got in, they stream it, everyone whos waiting or just didnt get a bera access is watching right now
    in a week most streamers will drop the game and its gonna struggle to get top5

    Honestly, if they try to compete with already existing markets they're going to be in tough shape. Like other MMOs and WoW, people have too much invested in WoW to try other MMOs seriously, which is why WoW blows other MMOs out of the water.

    Similarly with LoL and CS, people have a lot invested in the games. Blizzard will have a hard time drawing away the bigger audience. What they might find is a market that likes to play to FPS games, but is somehow turned off by the current big models. They need to find a niche that isn't fully exploited yet.

    Overwatch is a complete new sorta game.
    Just as LoL suddenly dominated the Moba market, overwatch will dominate his market.
    If not more.

    Any game that comes out hits top. HOTS did the same back then as did Hearthstone. I'm sure Overwatch is a good game but don't give it too much credit.

    And all the people who usually watch other games (causing their viewer count to drop) will be back watching their regular streams causing Overwatch to go down and other games back up. First day numbers are irrelevant, the numbers a week from now will give a better idea of overall excitement for the game.

    It´s just becouse Lirik is streaming it and first day they are allowed to stream, so probably have to wait a few days.

    Yeah, for the viewer count to be statistically significant they need to retain the numbers over a prolonged period, not less than 24 hours. Of course the numbers are high on a new beta that people are streaming. People are curious what the game is about, if they'll want to play and if it's fun to watch.

    A well-known Blizzard fan boy drooling over a Blizzard game, move along folks.

    Please refrain from inconstructive posts like this. It adds absolutely nothing to the discussion, and only contributes to a more toxic environment, which we do not condone.
