TFT hasn’t had over 100,000 viewers since April 2022, ahead of the Set 7 release on the Public Beta Environment servers. The all-time peak viewers in the TFT Twitch category was 364,000, and it occurred shortly after the release of the game in July 2019, according to TwitchTracker.

At the time of publication, there are more than 1,200 live channels streaming TFT on Twitch — the highest number of channels since April 2021. The trickle down effect of the viewership is also a factor. At the time of publication, more than 22 channels in the TFT category have 1,000 viewers or more.

The top streamer during Day 1 of Set 7 on live servers is Michael “k3soju” Zhang. At the time of publication, more than 15,000 viewers are tuned into k3soju’s stream as he climbs in ranked TFT. Viewers are tuning into the popular American TFT streamer’s broadcast to watch him as he navigates the new set.

K3soju also competes in the professional TFT circuit in North America. Recently, organizers announced changes to the competitive structure.

As with previous set and mid-set releases, Set 7 has brought a lot of excitement to TFT. In the past, viewership has steadily declined following the release of a new set until it stabilizes around 20,000 average viewers across a given month. TFT averaged 16,866 viewers across May 2022, according to TwitchTracker.

TFT Set 7: Dragonlands is a major shakeup to the game. The update completely overhauls the game by introducing new units, traits and set mechanics. The titular Dragon trait is the crux of the gameplay, with players striving to put powerful Dragon units into play.
