T1 vs JD Gaming: MSI 2023 Upper Bracket Final Sets New Viewership Record

The number of people watching the MSI 2023 tournament continues to soar to heights, with the series between T1 and JD Gaming becoming the most-watched series in the tournament’s history.

The MSI 2023 upper bracket final between T1 and JD Gaming lived up to the expectation in every way as the two Asian teams battled off a thrilling five-game series that left League of Legends fans riveted to their screens for more than four hours. T1 and JD Gaming are both from Asia. According to the statistics website Esports Charts, the match in which JDG defeated T1 by a score of 3-2 immediately became the most-viewed match in the history of the MSI tournament. The peak viewership for the event was over 2.2 million people. The previous record reached when T1 and RNG were competing in the final of the MSI 2022 was 2.19 million viewers.

It is important to note that these viewership estimates do not include Chinese streaming services because it is difficult to track the audience of these platforms using open data correctly. This is something that should be taken into consideration. Therefore, it is highly possible that the actual peak viewing is significantly larger than the number that Esports Charts can report.

The Mobile Legends: Bang Bang M4 World Championship had a peak viewership of 4.2 million viewers, making it the esports event with the most significant peak viewership of the year. Also, MSI 2023 has the second-highest peak viewership of any esports event this year. Sunday’s championship match may mark an even more impressive high point, depending on how the remainder of the tournament plays out. However, it is unlikely that it will get anywhere near the staggering peak of 5 million that was reached during the World Championships in the previous year.

The most played matches in the history of MSI:

  • T1 vs JD Gaming (MSI 2023) – 2,297,919
  • T1 vs RNG (MSI 2022) – 2,194,104
